UOIG 4
University of Oregon Investment Group April 19th, 2013
Strategic Resellers
In order to grow the companys presence internationally, Cornerstone
OnDemand has established a strong partnering strategy. It has signed reseller
agreements with international players such as Affiliated Computer Services,
Appirio, and ADP. In addition, it has signed with regional distributors such as
BSI Tecnologia in Brazil, CDP Group in China, Comms Learning Limited in the
United Kingdom, Infosys Limited in India, T2 Optimise PTY in Asia Pacific,
and many more. The company has stated it as a goal to continue to expand and
strengthen its strategic reseller agreements. This leaves much room to grow
because total foreign revenue in 2012 was a modest 30.6% of total revenues.

With strong client retention rates and effective strategic reseller agreements,
Cornerstone OnDemands growth has primarily been organic.

Acquisitions
On April 5th, 2012, Cornerstone OnDemand completed an acquisition of Sonar
Limited, a SaaS based talent management provider from New Zealand. Because
Sonar Limited had a focus on the SMB segments, this acquisition allowed
Cornerstone OnDemand to expand its presence in smaller business markets,
rebranding the solution as Cornerstone Small Business solution.

Industry
Overview
Talent management is a subsector of the overall human capital management
(HCM) industry. While HCM offerings are concerned with every aspect
pertaining to managing a companys work force, talent management is
specifically concerned with the gathering, training, and career planning of a
firms talent.

With increased globalization and competition between firms, HR professionals


are facing rising pressure to evaluate, develop, and retain top talent. Until
recently, HR employees were forced to purchase and deal with multiple aspects
of talent management separately if they wanted adequate software to aid in the
process. As a result, integrated talent management suites have emerged as a
solution to HR employees frustrations with the high cost and effort involved in
the talent management process.

Due to the cost and effort savings resulting from purchasing multiple
applications simultaneously from a SaaS vendor, full suite vendors with a SaaS
offering are leading the talent management market.

The primary offerings in talent management can be further broken down into
recruiting and staffing, learning and development, performance management,
and career planning:

Recruiting and Staffing: involves all the processes pertaining to the


hiring process. Firms will use these applications to automate job
listings, filter through potential applicants, source potential candidates
with internal workers, and build a pipeline of solid applicants for future
openings.
Learning and Development: involves all the processes pertaining to
thorough employee onboarding through face to face training, online
training, and social collaboration. Such onboarding applications aim to
accelerate time to productivity.

UOIG 5
University of Oregon Investment Group April 19th, 2013
Performance Management: involves all the processes pertaining to
management of current employee involvement and alignment of
individual goals with corporate initiatives. Such applications include
compensation management, skill assessments, and quantifiable
performance reviews.
Career Planning: involves all the processes pertaining to the collection
of individual goals, succession planning, and individual career
mapping. Businesses employ such software to ensure employee
satisfaction with their current jobs and where they are headed.

Competition
Cornerstone OnDemand competes in the market for talent management, a
market that is highly competitive, rapidly evolving, and very fragmented. While
there is much competition in specific niche offerings, Cornerstone OnDemand
has stated that it primarily competes as a comprehensive, fully integrated talent
management suite. Most of the companys competitors have multiple versions of
hosted or on-premise solutions.

Leadership Position Recognition


Cornerstone OnDemand has been recognized as a market leader in multiple third
party research reports from Gartner, Forrester, and IDC. Gartner defines talent
management suites as integrated set(s) of applications, including workforce
planning, talent acquisition, performance appraisal/assessment, goals
management, career development, succession management, learning
management, and compensation management. Each business is assessed on its
ability to execute (current offering assessment) and completeness of vision (plan
for future assessment) and ranked accordingly. In Gartners Magic Quadrant
for Talent Management Suites, the report notes how Cornerstone OnDemands
performance management, succession management and learning functionalities
are best in class.

Competitive Landscape
Due to the fact that Cornerstone OnDemands target market is enterprise
businesses, the company competes primarily with two types of talent
management providers: diversified software providers, and SaaS based talent
management providers.

Diversified Software Providers

with its acquisition of Kenexa. Prior to being acquired by IBM, Kenexa

Oracle: Oracle entered the market for talent management in December
2004 with its hostile takeover of PeopleSoft and extended its talent
management offerings with another acquisition of Taleo in February
2012. The software acquired in such buyouts are bundled into three
primary offerings: Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle PeopleSoft HCM,
and Oracle Talent Cloud. Oracle offers both on-premise and SaaS
based talent management solutions.
SAP: SAP offers on-premise HCM capabilities in its broader ERP SAP
Business Suite and recently expanded its talent management offerings
to support the cloud with its acquisition of SuccessFactors in February

Portfolio Strategy
The UOIG currently holds no shares of Cornerstone OnDemand in any portfolio
and has no history of doing so. We recommend a buy for all three portfolios, as
we see long term value as talent management gains increasing acceptance as a
necessary business function. We also see short term value in the companys
strong ability to manage robust growth, market leadership position, and ability
to continue signing new contracts.

UOIG 9
University of Oregon Investment Group April 19th, 2013
Other notable positives:

shown in the enterprise customers it attracts: BMW AG, ADP,
Barclays Bank PLC, Anheuser-Busch, Liberty Mutual
Insurance, etc.
o Cornerstone OnDemands SaaS, subscription based business
model is recession proof: its solution benefits businesses in
search of cost cutting initiatives.
o Cornerstone OnDemand has an exceptional management team
with diversified experiences, allowing the company to develop
the only 100% organically built talent management solution.

Downside
Cornerstone OnDemands customers report that the vendor is currently
behind other talent management suite in mobile capability offerings.
Competition: the talent management market is highly competitive,
rapidly evolving, and fragmented. The companys success will depend
on its ability to advance its offerings in accordance with demand.
Cornerstone OnDemand is growing at significant rates. The companys
success will depend on its ability to manage this growth.
Changes to the regulatory environment could increase the costs
involved in offering talent management solutions or negatively impact
usability.

Comparable Analysis
When screening for comparable companies, we searched for companies with
similar growth, business models, risks, size, and products, all in conjunction
with each other. Finding companies with similar growth was prioritized above
others but doing so was difficult due to Cornerstone OnDemands significantly
high revenue growth.

We chose to weight both EV/Revenue and EV/Gross Profit at 50% to


encompass the companys ability to compete on its ability to generate top line
revenue and maintain a healthy gross margin. Cornerstone OnDemand is at a
stage of high growth and negative cash flow, making revenue growth the most
important factor for the next couple of years. We decided to weight EV/Gross
Profit as well because gross margins are an important indicator of cost
management as the company becomes increasingly established.

a single platform for financials/ERP, customer relationship management (CRM),

University of Oregon Investment Group April 19th, 2013
-Yahoo Finance

-Yahoo Finance

Splunk received only a ten percent weighting mainly because its business model
is slightly different from Cornerstone OnDemand: instead of subscription
contractual revenue, they sell their products through licenses. However, they are
also unprofitable, have a similar beta, and are seeing growth rates that are close
to Cornerstone OnDemands.

Cornerstone OnDemand did not break up its revenue model into different line
items. The company recognizes revenue from subscriptions to its services,
consulting services, and E-learning content; however management refuses to
indicate what portion of revenue comes from each service. In our talks with the
companys investor relations, we were informed that roughly 80% of the
companys revenue is derived from subscription fees while the remaining 20%
is derived from supportive professional services. Thus, we were forced to
project total revenue. We recognize that the current growth rate of Cornerstone
OnDemand is not sustainable, so we looked at technology companies that have
experienced this type of growth in the past, giving us an idea of future revenue
growth. Industry growth was also a factor when projected annual revenue
growth in the upcoming years.

Cost of Goods Sold


The costs of goods sold is primarily the costs related to hosting the solution,
which includes network infrastructure, IT support, training services, overhead,
etc. We expect Cornerstone OnDemands gross margins to increase to around
80%, which is common for cloud based companies. Typical SaaS companies see
their cost of goods sold lower over time as a percentage of revenue.

Selling & Marketing
Selling and marketing expenses are primarily personal expenses that relate to the
sales staff, including bonuses, benefits, costs of promotional events, online
marketing, and salaries. As the business is growing at a rapid rate we can expect
this expense to remain a significant percentage of revenue. We looked at more
established companies who have gone through similar growth to Cornerstone
OnDemand to estimate what marketing expenses will be as a percentage of
revenue in the future.

Research and Development


Research and development consists of the expenses allocated to the research and
development staff including benefits, salaries, cost of third-party service
providers, and allocated overhead. Research and development will remain more
or less constant as Cornerstone OnDemand grows due to the need of improving
current products and innovating new products.

General and Administrative


General and administrative expenses are primarily related to administrative,
legal, and human resource staffs. These include salaries, benefits, bonuses,
professional fees, and overhead. We expect general and administrative expenses

1.78 30.63 30.63 30.63 30.63 30.63 expense in their income statement. We had to calculate the amount of
depreciation that was included in each of the operating expenses, subtract the
amount from each individual line item, and then include the total amount in a
new depreciation and amortization expense. Due to the scalability benefits of
Cornerstone OnDemand being a SaaS business, depreciation will be low as a
percent of revenue into perpetuity.

Tax Rate
The tax rate for Cornerstone OnDemand is difficult to calculate because it is
nearing profitability. Management does not give projections on the tax rate so
we looked at similar companies who have become profitable. After looking at
comparable companies we decided that we will gradually increase our tax rate to
reach thirty percent at perpetuity.

Beta
Cornerstone OnDemand Beta Calculations We ran multiple regressions to estimate Cornerstone OnDemands beta: a 1 year
Beta Standard Deviation Weighting weekly, a 2 year daily, and a 2 year monthly. All were regressed against the
1 Year Weekly 0.87 0.33 10% S&P 500. We chose a 70% weight on the 2 year monthly because we felt that it
2 Year Daily 1.12 0.10 20% best encompassed the risk of the company compared to the overall market. We
2 Year Monthly 1.82 0.33 70% believe that the weighted average beta of 1.58 represents a conservative estimate
Weighted Average Beta 1.58 of the companys risk.

WACC
Cornerstone OnDemands percent equity is nearly 100%. Thus, the cost of
equity played an overarching role in determining the weighted average cost of
capital. With a high, conservative beta, we obtained a WACC of 10.94%. We
believe that such a high WACC represents a conservative estimate of the
companys discount rate and adds credibility to our DCF.

Recommendation
In computing our final price target, we chose a 60% and 40% weightings on our
comparables and DCF, respectively. We chose a slightly higher weighting on
the comparables because valuing a cash flow negative company using a DCF
Multiple Implied Price Weight requires many more projections and assumptions than the comparables.
