Here is what Baron Global Advantage Fund has to say about ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:ZI) in its Q1 2022 investor letter:
"ZoomInfo Technologies Inc. operates a cloud-based B2B platform that provides sales, marketing, and HR teams with comprehensive business intelligence, enabling shorter sales cycles and higher win rates. While the stock was down 7% over the course of the first quarter, well-timed purchases turned it into a contributor that added 18bps to absolute returns. The company continues to execute well with another positive quarterly earnings surprise and strong forward bookings, with 2021 revenues growing 57% year-over-year, and with 46% free-cash-flow margins. New products are starting to build momentum, and we believe ZoomInfo can become a much larger company over time as it penetrates its $70 billion total addressable market."
