“ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. operates a cloud-based software platform that provides sales and marketing teams with comprehensive intelligence on approximately 14 million companies and 120 million professionals. Access to this valuable data enables its clients to shorten their sales cycles and achieve higher win rates. The company’s shares declined, given a somewhat uncertain spending environment among its clients. We retain conviction in the long-term opportunity, and we believe the spending environment has since improved. We think ZoomInfo is well positioned given its unique contributory network for data collection and validation, patented data extraction technologies, and proprietary go-to-market strategy.”
