Netis wrote:

“We are initiating coverage of ZM with an Overweight/Vol. rating ($115 PT). We believe Zoom’s modern approach to video—which falls under the “third wave” of UCC transformation theme—is driving a fundamental change in the user consumption model. We further believe that continued share gains in the video/web collaboration market, new product launches (Zoom Phone/Zoom Rooms), growing penetration within enterprises, and international expansion provides a long runway for growth. Our proprietary sizing of key revenue opportunities yields an estimate of $2.9 billion in revenue by 2023 (55% five-year CAGR), of which, we estimate Phone would contribute a $1 billion in revenue on a combined basis. We expect Zoom to grow into its premium valuation as it becomes the global standard for enterprises.”
