“We view Yext’s new integration with Adobe products positively for the former, given the boost to its customer value proposition as well as cross-sell potential across Adobe’s sizable customer base. As importantly, Adobe’s decision to partner with Yext for a key part of its business highlights the latter’s unique and growing role in managing businesses’ information across the Web and in gathering valuable analytics across a disparate set of platforms. Yext’s large TAM, deepening moat, lack of meaningful competition, and potential for LT margin expansion keep us positive.”
