WANdisco’s proprietary replication technology enables its customers to solve critical data management challenges created by the shift to cloud computing. It has established partner relationships with leading players in the cloud ecosystem including Amazon and Microsoft.

Investment summary

Sales of $10m in H219 fell short of the $18m implied by FY19 guidance. WANdisco will now implement large Microsoft co-sell deals via its new integrated platform; these deals are still in the pipeline and it is confident they will be closed in H120. The lower H2 run rate leads us to cut FY20 sales to $28m. However, the commercialisation of the Microsoft platform is on track and should drive a sharp acceleration in growth through the year.

Industry outlook

WANdisco has set out its ambition to generate annual revenue of at least $100m in the next three to five years from a combination of 1) data migration; 2) hybrid cloud; and 3) multi-cloud. Ahead of a shift to recurring revenue visibility is limited but our scenario analysis suggests $84m by FY23 as a base case (a fivefold increase from FY18 levels).
