Artisan Partners made the following comment about Trimble Inc. (NASDAQ:TRMB) in its Q4 2022 investor letter:
“Trimble Inc. (NASDAQ:TRMB) is an industrial technology company that is bringing software, sensor and device solutions to areas of the economy that have been historically relatively slower to adopt new technology—such as agriculture, transportation and construction. While Trimble has made progress shifting its business toward software, its remaining hardware business is beginning to come under cyclical pressure. In addition, the company is taking on additional debt to fund an acquisition in its transportation technology segment, which is an area of the business we find less attractive. We believe Bentley System’s greater focus on civil construction software leaves it better positioned for the next few years, so we decided to harvest Trimble to fund this new investment.”
