We believe Digi will post strong double- digit growth for its IoT solutions business over the next several years and achieve its 3- to 5-year target of $50M to $100M in annual recurring revenue. As the recurring revenue solutions business increases in the total revenue mix and drives margin accretion longer term, we anticipate the multiple will expand consistent with other IoT coverage companies that have a stronger mix of recurring revenue.”
