In a report released today, Mark Murphy from J.P. Morgan reiterated a Hold rating on Talend SA (NASDAQ: TLND), with a price target of $28. The company’s shares opened today at $24.50.

Murphy commented:

“Talend’s Q3 was marked by accelerating subscription revenue, which grew 44% y/y on a CC basis, and net-dollar expansion of 121% on a CC basis. Although Talend does not typically sign large deals up front, its land-and-expand model was evidenced by a customer adding $1.7M to its ACV in Q3, bringing its total spending to $4M annually. Talend also remains on track to be cash flow positive for the full year 2016. Talend’s headcount at the end of the quarter was 649, representing 40% growth y/y. Additionally, management commented that its growth of quota carrying sales reps was tracking ahead of its revenue growth, which we think is a critical indicator of how management views its opportunity. Calculated billings were inline with our estimate, and were adversely impacted by FX headwinds and a contraction in average contract duration to 1.2 years compared to 1.5 years in 3Q15 and vs. the company’s expectation of 1.4 years.”
