  • Salesforce announced two key exec changes, according to an internal memo viewed by Insider.
  • Salesforce's chief customer success officer Brian Millham is its new chief operating officer.
  • Chief revenue officer Gavin Patterson is moving into a new chief strategy officer role.

Salesforce announced an internal shakeup in its executive ranks today, naming a new chief operating officer and moving its head of revenue into a new strategic role, according to a leaked internal memo viewed by Insider.

Salesforce also filed an 8-K document with the Securities & Exchange Commission detailing the executive shuffle.

The new leadership structure will enable Salesforce to deliver customer success in a "more powerful, unified, and agile way on our path to $50B in revenue," the memo, signed by company co-CEOs Marc Benioff and Bret Taylor, says.

Brian Millham, the company's chief customer success officer, will become Salesforce's new chief operating officer, according to the memo. Salesforce is moving ownership of its global sales organization under Millham, who will also oversee customer success, professional services, and alliances and channels, according to the memo.

Gavin Patterson, the company's chief revenue officer, will now be the company's chief strategy officer. Patterson has been the company's chief revenue officer since May 2020 after joining Salesforce in August 2019.

"Over the last two years, he has been our CRO, overseeing the most rapid growth period in Salesforce's history," the memo states. "Gavin will help guide our strategy as we innovate, deliver customer success, and supercharge Salesforce's growth for decades to come."

Millham, meanwhile is a Salesforce lifer, having joined the company in 1999. He was president of the company's commercial sales for 16 years, according to his LinkedIn profile, before taking over customer success in September 2018.

The executive shuffle happens as Salesforce will announce its second-quarter results later this month. Salesforce reported $4.87 billion in the first quarter at the front of Patterson's tenure in Q1 2020, while reporting $7.41 billion in Q1 this year—an overall increase of around 52.2%.

Like most companies, Salesforce has seen a precipitous decline in its stock amid a wider market downturn. The company was worth roughly $300 billion in November last year, but has since shed more than $100 billion from its high.

Salesforce declined to add any additional details about the executive changes.

Killexams : Salesforce Has Already Begun Its Next Rally (Technical Analysis)
Salesforce To Purchase Popular Messaging Platform Slack For 27 Billion

Stephen Lam

I’ve made it pretty clear in the past few weeks – both in my public articles and for subscribers – that I think the bottom is already in. I’ve also made it clear I think areas of high growth and high valuations – the areas that have been obliterated this year – are going to lead us out of this bear market. That belief has seen me shopping for risk exposure in the past couple of weeks, and one area I think looks great is software.

I see a lot of charts I like in software, but one that I think has a great looking chart, and a very strong future from a fundamental perspective, is software conglomerate Salesforce (NYSE:CRM). This company has been and is likely to remain a leader in the space through its transformational acquisitions and organic growth, and the chart is telling me the time to buy is at hand. I notified subscribers on June 2nd that I thought CRM had made the bottom, and so far, so good. But it’s not too late to buy, as the action since I made that call has only reinforced the idea CRM’s path is higher from here.

CRM Stock Chart

StockCharts

There’s a lot going on with this chart, so let’s first take a look at the most important thing, and that’s price action itself. We can see the big rally off the earnings report stopped exactly where you’d expect it to, at the zone of resistance I’ve annotated. That’s not a coincidence, and it’s why I love using technical analysis. Since then, we’ve seen a couple of pullbacks and a couple of rally attempts that have failed. However, there’s a lot to be bullish about right now.

First, we’re seeing higher lows. That means sellers have already reached exhaustion, or are very close. Second, the momentum indicators are pointing higher, and have been for some time, even as the stock flounders. That, again, is quite bullish as it is indicating sellers are drying up.

In the bottom two panels, we can see Salesforce is outperforming its peer group since the beginning of June, and critically, software stocks are beginning to outperform the S&P 500 again. We want to own winning stocks in winning groups, and to my eye, Salesforce checks that box.

Finally, both the 20-day EMA and the 50-day SMA have turned higher, which is a critical step in the process of bottoming. These should serve as support now, after having been resistance for several months.

I see a bunch to like here from a bullish perspective, and basically nothing that makes me bearish. It appears Salesforce was punished sufficiently in the past eight months or so, and that the next bull run has begun.

Now, let’s take a look at the fundamental case for Salesforce, as I think that’s equally as compelling.

Growth, Both Bought And Made

The thing that I like about Salesforce is that it is extremely diversified, which is the exact opposite of most software stocks. Generally, software stocks have one product, or maybe a core product and extensions of that product. The point is, however, that when a new competitor starts to do the same thing, it can be devastating to a highly concentrated business. Software is the antithesis to this, and its diversification is perhaps its most attractive trait.

Salesforce segment revenue

Investor presentation

The last fiscal year showed at least 15% growth across all of its categories, with MuleSoft and Tableau leading the way in terms of revenue growth. You wouldn’t know by looking at the share price that the company’s segments were all absolutely crushing it in terms of generating new business. The share price looks like a company that is in decline, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

In addition, the company’s backlog continues to grow, and is absolutely enormous at this point.

Salesforce future revenue

Investor presentation

Salesforce ended FQ1 with $42 billion in RPO, up 20% year-over-year. That’s ~16 months of revenue that is in the backlog, and it continues to grow as the top line grows. This assures Salesforce remains in a strong position from a revenue growth perspective for the foreseeable future, which is critical given how much money the company is spending.

Salesforce headcount

Investor presentation

Salesforce touts its workplace awards, and rightfully so; attracting top talent is something every company wants to achieve. However, headcount was up 30% year-over-year in FQ1, and has been growing extremely rapidly in exact years. While that supports innovation, product development, and ultimately growth, it is also the most expensive thing a company can do.

Salesforce, despite its enormous size, continues to invest like a startup in its future growth. As long as it pays off, that strategy works. If it doesn’t, Salesforce will have a gigantic fixed cost base without commensurate revenue and margin to pay for it. To be clear, I don’t think that will happen, but when you see headcount outpacing revenue growth by a wide margin, that’s something that must be monitored. There is such a thing as over-investing.

Getting back to the revenue story, below we can see Salesforce’s history of outperforming estimates, which is evident by the nearly constant upward slope of these lines.

Salesforce revenue revisions

Seeking Alpha

There are dips as sentiment changes over time, but the trend here is quite clear. In addition, there’s sufficient space in between the lines, which represents year-over-year growth. Not much to say here other than if you’re looking for a reason to be bullish, you can do much worse than to see revenue revisions like this.

We see a bumpier path with EPS, which looks wholly different to the revenue revisions we just looked at.

Salesforce EPS revisions

Seeking Alpha

The trend is still higher over time, but there were huge expectations of Salesforce in late-2019, which is right before a certain pandemic started. Since then, estimates bottomed before moving higher for this year, as well as the next two years. The out years continue to see downward revisions, but those are far less important than expectations for the next year or two. On that measure, it seems Salesforce has seen the worst of sentiment, which is another key factor in spotting a bottom.

One final point before we get to the valuation is that Salesforce has made its living to a large extent buying growth. Its list of purchases is extensive, and the company has spent an enormous amount of money over the years buying companies to add to its ecosystem.

Salesforce cash acquisition cost

TIKR cash acquisitions

Just the past handful of years has seen well over $20 billion of cash paid for acquisitions. That’s a huge amount for all but the very largest companies in the world, but to its credit, Salesforce has maintained a pristine balance sheet throughout.

Salesforce net debt

TIKR net debt

Net debt has fluctuated, as you’d expect, but it has a very good chance of being around zero by the end of the July quarter. That means Salesforce has immense flexibility with its own business to invest, but also to go out and get its next bolt-on target to further build its ecosystem. I see the lack of leverage as a big advantage for Salesforce given its chosen strategy of buying growth, and it supports the bull case over time.

To be fair, Salesforce isn't exactly afraid to dilute shareholders both to pay employees, and to fund these acquisitions. However, so long as they are accretive, that's okay. For now, it's working.

It's…so…cheap

As you may expect, a stock that fell by half from peak to trough is now looking much cheaper than it was. Let’s start by valuing it on a price-to-sales basis.

CRM price to sales ratio

TIKR P/S ratio

This is a three-year view, and we can see the trough was 4.8X sales, which was actually hit very recently, while the peak was 11.4X. I don’t think we’ll see that sort of valuation anytime soon, as unbridled bullishness is needed for such frothiness. However, the average of 7.9X? Absolutely. The past two years have proven Salesforce’s model isn’t broken, and in fact, is thriving. Why shouldn’t we expect at least an average valuation?

Let’s now take a look at forward P/E, which shows an even more bullish tint.

CRM P/E ratio

TIKR P/E ratio

The average forward P/E in the past three years is 60X earnings, and shares trade for just 35X today. Again, the peak of 84X is likely unrealistic, but we could easily see 50X to 60X forward earnings in the coming months, given I believe the stock has bottomed. That would mean a share price of $238 to $286 on $4.76 in projected EPS for fiscal 2023, and if we do the same calculation on fiscal 2024, we’re looking at $292 to $350. If you’re keeping score at home, that’s a long way from today’s price of $176, so I think upside potential both short-term and long-term is significant to say the least.

Buying software stocks in the face of a recession, and while we’re still in a bear market, takes some faith to be sure. But I’m seeing signs all over the place that there is cause for optimism, which is why I told subscribers five weeks ago it was okay to buy CRM. I still see that as the case now, with the past five weeks having bolstered the bullish case.

Salesforce is way too cheap and has far too much growth ahead to be priced the way it is. This stock is going much, much higher.

Someone with a lot of money to spend has taken a bullish stance on Salesforce CRM.

And retail traders should know.

We noticed this today when the big position showed up on publicly available options history that we track here at Benzinga.

Whether this is an institution or just a wealthy individual, we don't know. But when something this big happens with CRM, it often means somebody knows something is about to happen.

So how do we know what this whale just did?

Today, Benzinga's options scanner spotted 10 uncommon options trades for Salesforce.

This isn't normal.

The overall sentiment of these big-money traders is split between 60% bullish and 40%, bearish.

Out of all of the special options we uncovered, 7 are puts, for a total amount of $369,989, and 3 are calls, for a total amount of $180,180.

What's The Price Target?

Taking into account the Volume and Open Interest on these contracts, it appears that whales have been targeting a price range from $145.0 to $210.0 for Salesforce over the last 3 months.

Volume & Open Interest Development

Looking at the volume and open interest is a powerful move while trading options. This data can help you track the liquidity and interest for Salesforce's options for a given strike price. Below, we can observe the evolution of the volume and open interest of calls and puts, respectively, for all of Salesforce's whale trades within a strike price range from $145.0 to $210.0 in the last 30 days.

What The Experts Say On Salesforce:

Options are a riskier asset compared to just trading the stock, but they have higher profit potential. Serious options traders manage this risk by educating themselves daily, scaling in and out of trades, following more than one indicator, and following the markets closely.

Killexams : What Type Of Shareholders Make Up Salesforce, Inc.'s (NYSE:CRM) Share Registry?

The big shareholder groups in Salesforce, Inc. (NYSE:CRM) have power over the company. Insiders often own a large chunk of younger, smaller, companies while huge companies tend to have institutions as shareholders. Companies that have been privatized tend to have low insider ownership.

Salesforce has a market capitalization of US$170b, so it's too big to fly under the radar. We'd expect to see both institutions and retail investors owning a portion of the company. In the chart below, we can see that institutions are noticeable on the share registry. Let's delve deeper into each type of owner, to discover more about Salesforce.

See our latest analysis for Salesforce

ownership-breakdown

What Does The Institutional Ownership Tell Us About Salesforce?

Institutional investors commonly compare their own returns to the returns of a commonly followed index. So they generally do consider buying larger companies that are included in the relevant benchmark index.

We can see that Salesforce does have institutional investors; and they hold a good portion of the company's stock. This suggests some credibility amongst professional investors. But we can't rely on that fact alone since institutions make bad investments sometimes, just like everyone does. If multiple institutions change their view on a stock at the same time, you could see the share price drop fast. It's therefore worth looking at Salesforce's earnings history below. Of course, the future is what really matters.

Since institutional investors own more than half the issued stock, the board will likely have to pay attention to their preferences. We note that hedge funds don't have a meaningful investment in Salesforce. Our data shows that The Vanguard Group, Inc. is the largest shareholder with 7.8% of shares outstanding. With 6.9% and 5.9% of the shares outstanding respectively, BlackRock, Inc. and FMR LLC are the second and third largest shareholders. In addition, we found that Marc Benioff, the CEO has 2.8% of the shares allocated to their name.

A deeper look at our ownership data shows that the top 25 shareholders collectively hold less than half of the register, suggesting a large group of small holders where no single shareholder has a majority.

While studying institutional ownership for a company can add value to your research, it is also a good practice to research analyst recommendations to get a deeper understand of a stock's expected performance. Quite a few analysts cover the stock, so you could look into forecast growth quite easily.

Insider Ownership Of Salesforce

While the precise definition of an insider can be subjective, almost everyone considers board members to be insiders. Company management run the business, but the CEO will answer to the board, even if he or she is a member of it.

I generally consider insider ownership to be a good thing. However, on some occasions it makes it more difficult for other shareholders to hold the board accountable for decisions.

Shareholders would probably be interested to learn that insiders own shares in Salesforce, Inc.. It is a very large company, and board members collectively own US$5.3b worth of shares (at current prices). It is good to see this level of investment. You can check here to see if those insiders have been buying recently.

General Public Ownership

The general public-- including retail investors -- own 18% stake in the company, and hence can't easily be ignored. This size of ownership, while considerable, may not be enough to change company policy if the decision is not in sync with other large shareholders.

Next Steps:

I find it very interesting to look at who exactly owns a company. But to truly gain insight, we need to consider other information, too. Be aware that Salesforce is showing 4 warning signs in our investment analysis , you should know about...

But ultimately it is the future, not the past, that will determine how well the owners of this business will do. Therefore we think it advisable to take a look at this free report showing whether analysts are predicting a brighter future.

Killexams : 6sense Jumps Up to No. 61 On the 2022 Forbes Cloud 100

Revenue AI leader makes the esteemed list for the second year in a row

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- 6sense, the leading platform for B2B organizations generating predictable revenue, has been named to the Forbes 2022 Cloud 100 for the second consecutive year. In 2022, 6sense ranked number 61 on the list moving up 36 spots from its ranking of 97 in 2021. The definitive ranking of the world’s top 100 private cloud companies is published by Forbes in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures.

“This recognition from Forbes to their Cloud 100 list for the second year is remarkable. This is a direct reflection of the dedication our team pours into creating meaningful customer value and the potential of harnessing AI, machine learning, and big data to predictably grow revenue,” said Jason Zintak, CEO of 6sense. “We’ve witnessed impressive results from our customers and consistently hear that 6sense Revenue AI™ enables their teams to scale creation and conversion of pipeline to revenue, effectively and efficiently.”

For the seventh straight year, the Cloud 100 reviews submissions from hundreds of cloud startups and private companies each year. The Cloud 100 evaluation process involved ranking companies across four factors: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people & culture (15%). For market leadership, the Cloud 100 enlists the help of a judging panel of public cloud company CEOs who assist in evaluating and ranking their private company peers.

6sense Revenue AI™ is the market-leading platform used by B2B revenue teams to address the $2 trillion in waste across sales and marketing efforts each year. Applying the power of AI, big data, and machine learning across the whole buyer’s journey has proven to increase average deal sizes by 100%, Improve conversions by 20%, and close deals 30% faster. Where guesswork and indecisiveness threaten the bottom line, AI provides valuable insights, recommendations, and guidance that provides the confidence business leaders need, regardless of economic conditions.

Today’s announcement comes on the heels of significant milestones for the company, having closed its Series E funding round of $200 million in January 2022, doubling its valuation to over $5.2 billion. With four acquisitions within the last year and recognition from customers and industry analysts for unparalleled product innovation, 6sense has demonstrated its ability to execute against a bold vision for the future of predictable and efficient revenue growth.

“The companies of the Cloud 100 list represent the best and brightest private companies in this fast-growing sector,” said Alex Konrad, senior editor at Forbes. “Every year, it gets more difficult to make this list — meaning even more elite company for those who do. Congratulations to each of the 2022 Cloud 100 honorees.”

“The public markets may be in turmoil, but the private valuations of the Cloud 100 continue to rise. All of the 2022 Cloud 100 honorees, again, have reached the $1 billion valuation milestone, and the average Cloud 100 valuation has skyrocketed to $7.4 billion,” said Mary D’Onofrio, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “Despite the market correction in 2022, our confidence in the cloud economy continues to grow—today over 70% of the 2022 Cloud 100 Honorees have reached or exceeded $100 million in annual recurring revenue making them cloud Centaurs. An additional 10% of the list is expected to hit this milestone by the end of the year, furthering our conviction that this years’ honorees truly represent the best cloud companies globally.”

“Great companies are born out of all environments, and it’s exciting to see the continued momentum in the cloud sector,” said Alex Kayyal, Managing Partner, Salesforce Ventures. “The companies on this list have gone through a rigorous selection process, and join an esteemed alumni list of Cloud 100 companies. As the need for digital transformation continues to drive innovation and efficiencies across industries, we can look to these companies as the absolute best in cloud computing.”
