“Everbridge (NASDAQ:EVBG) is a cloud-based enterprise software provider of a real-time communications platform used by state and local governments as well as companies to send constituents email and text message alerts. After the abrupt departure of the CEO late last year and preliminary commentary regarding slowing growth in 2022, the company officially guided for even slower growth for this year because of execution issues and the postponement of deals. Although we still believe the service provided by the company is important, the lack of clarity regarding the dramatic growth deceleration left us with no option but to sell the stock.”
