Bottom Line

Ultimate Software is benefiting from robust adoption of its HCM solutions. Its cloud-based business model and expanding product portfolio are key catalysts. Top-line growth is expected to be bolstered by the portfolio strength. Additionally, new customer wins as well as impressive retention rates bode well.

However, intensifying competition in the HCM market from the likes of Oracle (ORCL - Free Report) , Paycom Software, Inc. (PAYC - Free Report) and SAP SE (SAP - Free Report) along with higher operating expenses remain major concerns. This apart, the ongoing trend to invest more in cloud solutions exposes Ultimate Software to the risk of losing existing enterprise customers which can adversely impact its top-line performance, especially in the near term.
