Advent Software, Inc. Research Report

Accounting software company Advent is considering a sale and has hired
investment bank Qatalyst to lead the effort. The news increased the company's
shares by 11 percent, giving the company a market value of almost $1.5
billion. To improve its profit margins in the face of slower revenue growth,
Advent has taken some cost-cutting initiatives, as many of its customers have
been hesitant to spend following a long period of economic uncertainty. In the
future, however, things are looking bright for the company as it has noted
that new banking regulations in Europe will help Advent increase the region's
share of its sales to 30 percent in three to five years. The company achieved
record fourth quarter revenue of $92 million, and expects the full year
revenue for 2013 to be around $373 million to $379 million. The Full Research
Report on Advent Software, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst
ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at:
