“HubSpot has its roots in marketing automation software for small and medium-sized businesses, but during our ownership period has steadily expanded its offering to become a broad front-office solution suite across marketing, sales, service, website content management and customer data analytics (and has simultaneously enriched these tools to attract larger customers). The pandemic has prompted companies across the globe to modernize their customer-facing software at a record pace as they increasingly rely on their digital capabilities. HubSpot’s ability to meet this need was on full display in its recent earnings results. New customer additions hit a record pace (+45% YoY), and the company demonstrated both high retention of existing customers and strong progress in driving higher adoption of additional software modules. Furthermore, the company’s sales and marketing spend is getting more efficient, which is driving a steady increase in margins. Given the positive profit cycle momentum, we added to our position at a valuation we consider attractive.”
