Needham & Company analyst Ryan Koontz initiates coverage on Bandwidth Inc. (NASDAQ: BAND) with a Buy rating and a price target of $155.00.

The analyst commented, "We initiate coverage of BAND with a Buy rating and a PT of $155. We see BAND as a global leader in the fast-growing CPaaS market, where it specializes in migrating voice services to the cloud (including UCaaS) from legacy telecom infrastructure and is a challenger in API-driven messaging. Despite an increasingly competitive and complex CPaaS landscape, we see BAND's innovation and scale in voice among global leaders as a sustainable advantage.

We view consensus revenue estimates as achievable and believe the easing of pandemic restrictions is unlikely to slow global CPaaS and UCaaS adoption. With the pull-back in high-growth valuations, we see BAND's current share price as an attractive entry point. Our Price Target of $155 is equivalent to an EV/Sales multiple of 7.8x our F22 estimate."
