Ellie Mae: Dominant SaaS Provider In Mortgage Industry At 45% Discount

Investment Thesis

Ellie Mae (NYSEMKT:ELLI) is the largest provider of SaaS-delivered mortgage origination software to the mortgage origination market. The company has steadily increased revenue, gross margins and cash flow due to its compelling value proposition, industry tailwinds, and organic and inorganic growth initiatives. ELLI generated RoE of 10-11% in the last year while re-investing for growth. The company is positioned for growth and strong cash flow generation despite near-term headwinds in mortgage origination volume.
