Needham & Company analyst, Scott Zeller, reiterated his Strong Buy rating on shares of LogMeIn (NASDAQ: LOGM) and raised his price target to $114 from $98. In late July, LOGM and CTXS announced the Reverse Morris Trust transaction in which LOGM will combine with the CTXS GoTo business in a deal valued at $1.8B at the time of the announcement. The analyst examined the available materials post-announcement, including the LOGM S-4 from September 15th, 2016.

The analyst's view is that the initial guidance of “year 1” (CY17) for LOGM+GoTo of (approximately) $1B revenue, $375m Adj EBITDA and $250m FCF is reasonable, and includes $65m of synergies. He plans to update his LOGM estimates once the deal closes in early CY17. Since the announcement of the deal, shares have appreciated roughly +31% (S&P is down approximately 1.5% during that time frame) and trade near $90. The new $114 PT equates to 16x EV/EBITDA CY17.
