Avaya: Near-Term Balance Sheet Catalyst Could Send Shares Higher

Avaya Holdings is a large unified communications and contact center as a service provider undergoing a business model transformation to the cloud and an Annual Recurring Revenue (“ARR”) model. ARR has scaled dramatically since it was first offered in early 2020 and is on pace to end the calendar year 2022 at $1 billion or more. The transition from one-time perpetual sales impacted near-term revenue and cash flow but yielded stickier revenue and more predictable cash flow over time while also ostensibly stressing the balance sheet. Avaya shares sold off dramatically in May as a result of bankruptcy fears regarding a June 2023 $350 million bond maturity. The company launched a $500 million offering which should close soon and cause liquidity fears to subside, yielding upside to the stock.
