“Twilio reported another impressive quarter, with robust customer growth and expansion rates, while providing above-consensus top-line guidance for standalone Twilio. Twilio closed the SendGrid acquisition earlier than expected (initially 2Q19) and we believe this can help Twilio accelerate Flex’s go-to-market. We see upside from robust base revenue growth, conservatively-guided variable revenues, and cross- selling Twilio’s voice/text products to SendGrid’s customer base, all of which solidify Twilio’s LT revenue growth trajectory. Meanwhile, we see GM benefiting from rolling SendGrid into the model and are unconcerned with the lower operating margin guidance, given the magnitude of the visible opportunity in front of Twilio. Adjusting our estimates given results; our PT goes to $125 (from $110). Maintain Outperform.”,” ‘s analyst commented.
