Michael Morosi of MAPFRE AM presented his in-depth investment thesis on QAD Inc. (US: CADA) at Best Ideas 2019.

Thesis summary:

QAD’s value-accretive business model transition continues to gain momentum. The attractive financial attributes of the new model are increasingly evident in margin expansion and cash flow generation. Meanwhile, the organization maintains its customer-centric focus to retain existing customers and acquire new ones. 

Michael’s valuation of $950 million has multiple levers for upside, offers a 15-20% margin of safety, and should increase over time with continued growth in the subscription business.
