Five9: With Or Without Zoom, I Would Take It
Headquartered in San Ramon, California, Five9 offers cloud contact center solutions for companies in different industries, companies of different sizes, virtual agents, and workflow automation. Most companies are moving from transitional CRM solutions to cloud contact center software solutions. Cloud contact center software solutions offer innovative functionalities that cannot be offered by old CRMs. Among the new innovations, Five9 offers automatic speech recognition and natural language processing. I made the forecasts until 2030 with constant sales growth of 17%. I also assumed a conservative FCF margin of 11% from 2023 to 2025, and used a WACC of 4.7%. With these assumptions, Five9 would deliver sales of $2.4 billion in 2030 with a 2030 FCF of $273 million. Five9 will most likely perform successfully on its own. Under my financial model, Five9’s stock price is still far from its fair price.
