For the upcoming year, consensus expectations of low double-digit license declines compare with company expectations of ‘growth’; as such, we think estimates have been appropriately de-risked at this point. We maintain our Buy rating and $200 PT on potential upside on execution initiatives through the year. KeyPoints Expect results in-line with current consensus. Recall that the company is lapping an easier sequential compare given sub-seasonal 3Q17 results. We expect total revenue of $134-135mm (down 3-4% Y/Y; up 7-8% sequentially) vs. consensus of $134mm. License revenues could print around $29-39mm (down 21-24% Y/Y; up 34-39% sequentially) vs. consensus of $30mm. Consensus margin expectations of 12% (down nearly 1700bps Y/Y) seem reasonable as a result of a step-up in hiring plans.””
