  • William Blair writes that Evolent Health remains well-positioned for robust and profitable growth. It maintains an Outperform rating and reiterates EVH shares as its top pick for 2023.

  • The analyst says that the management highlighted its goal to hit roughly $300 million in run-rate adjusted EBITDA by the end of 2024—driven by solid performance in the core business, cost discipline, and synergies and growth associated with recent transactions.

  • The analyst views EVH's 2023 sales multiple of 2x and EBITDA multiple of 20x as an attractive risk/reward level, given the company's unique market position, large and growing addressable market, and still-robust longer-term growth outlook.
