Deutsche Bank downgraded ServiceSource International (NASDAQ: SREV) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $7.00 (from $15.00) following Q3 results and weak outlook.

The firm comments, "SREV reported rev/EPS of $59.1m (18% y/y)/$0.02 vs. our $58.5m/$0.02 and consensus $58.8m/($0.01). 4Q12 guidance was below consensus, which reflects reduced customer engagements/loss of a customer, and longer rev conversion cycles for new ACVs. The Co’s tone understandably seemed resigned to poor execution, with 2012 ACV growth target of 15% - 17%, vs guidance at start of year of 35%. Looking ahead, we see significant challenges – the nascent nature of subscription business indicates investors will deem this service-heavy in near term, and young salesforce indicates future execution will be challenging."
