Barrington Research analysts commented, "We view this discount as unwarranted given that Instructure’s projected growth rate is much higher at 30%/27% in 2018/2019, compared to an average of 21%/22% for the Ed Tech peer group and 19%/18% for the vertical‐focused SaaS peer group. As Instructure moves towards cash positive (2018E) and profitability (2020E), we would expect its multiple to expand versus its peers. As such, we are reiterating our OUTPERFORM investment rating and our 12‐month price target of $50, which assumes a 5.5x multiple on our 2019 revenue estimate, suggesting 25% upside from current levels."
