Polen U.S. Small Company Growth Strategy made the following comment about Progyny, Inc. (NASDAQ:PGNY) in its second quarter 2023 investor letter:
“The top contributors to the Portfolio’s relative performance in the second quarter included AppFolio, Goosehead Insurance, and Progyny, Inc. (NASDAQ:PGNY). Finally, Progyny, a provider of fertility benefits to self-insured companies, continues to deliver powerful results headlined by 50% YoY revenue growth and 87% YoY adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA ) growth. Concerns about the impact of significant tech layoffs on their business have been put to rest, as the secular tailwind around the demand for high-quality fertility and family-building care remains very much intact. The combination of these powerful secular tailwinds and the company’s industry diversification efforts over the last few years has translated into sustained and resilient growth in the face of macro uncertainty.”
