The company continues to win deals in these segments that will drive top-line growth. Moreover, the transition to cloud-based applications will drive recurring revenue growth in the long term. Notably, estimates have been stable ahead of the company's fourth-quarter results. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters. We note that the company has outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, lack of international customers, mounting operating loss, continuing cash burn and stretched valuation are major headwinds.”
