  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "WageWorks, Inc. is an on-demand provider of tax-advantaged programs for consumer-directed health, commuter and other employee spending account benefits, or CDBs, in the United States. The Company administers and operates an array of CDBs, including spending account management programs, such as health and dependent care flexible spending accounts, health savings accounts, health reimbursement arrangements and commuter benefits, such as transit and parking programs. The Company delivers its CDB programs through a benefits-as-a-service delivery model. WageWorks, Inc. is headquartered in San Mateo, California. " (10/5/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "WAGE reported 4Q results that missed on revenue but were in-line on EBITDA and above consensus on EPS. The ADP acquisition closed two weeks later than was initially expected, which was largely responsible for the revenue shortfall. Results included another healthy quarter of organic growth, which was up 16% Y/Y. WAGE introduced guidance for FY17 that was slightly below consensus on revenue but above on EPS, and also provided an updated three year outlook which included improved EBITDA margin expectations. We remain encouraged by organic growth trends, and we believe that WAGE is well positioned for growth in FY17 due to secular tailwinds and potential upside from the ADP acquisition. We reiterate our BUY rating and raise our target to $82." (2/24/2017)
