Here is what Artisan Mid Cap Fund has to say about Atlassian Corporation Plc in its Q4 2021 investor letter:
"Atlassian was among our top performers and contributors in 2021. The company is adding new customers at >2X its pre-pandemic pace and is experiencing strong subscription growth as customers migrate to the cloud. We remain confident in the fundamental outlook as companies of all sizes adopt its tools and as new enterprise-wide product offerings are rolled out. However, we reduced our position size as the stock approached our PMV estimate. The stock remains a high conviction holding, especially after its selloff later in the quarter."
