So me. one from just question

sales acquisitions, mentioned of I or think Jack, capacity. lot in of keeping you where that this you're kind of So, investing your that's some really a

there resources recent what guess we've from the with versus growth seen should the curious, accelerate more, historically? of to acquisitions profiles acquisition different your we I I'm about some profile expect of those terms anything as growth marketing is sales Thanks And organic related guys. that in and companies, anniversary with contribution? they kind

Jack McDonald

yes, you So for thank that question.

to a in were we've Earlier more at starting we scale march. to closely organic yes, really organic history on couple acquired more margin started now attention products. our our a ago, So, and we growth, turned growth. years of look And, more

we'd like again, pre-acquisition. So to XX%, growth to see XX% organic

we on companies these before and them. that. impact has losing It money Now buy an repositioning remember, are them

in maintain an restructuring. And to growth so, post the rate the XX% that goal to organic range, is X%

these continue as could Now in cluster, as talent, we as we increase NPS on beneficial we move we the to increase products and to retention gain organic continue impact market, as a all upgrade scale of scores, the suites solution sales rates, have that growth.

digits. is for target growth that as organic the mid-single But always, said,

so to of forecasting three, that. have of to there. And conservatively that's years. next There or I set will us creation guide two, value that to on than We opportunity in different people anything want front going expectations we in cause in four anniversaries bake a is five much more be don't really the

from annual businesses, sustainable to front resources deal to customers we've the now this. flow that in human have reposition for deliver business that growth, onboard financial rate, few operating nothing these years this ago value of them to to taken a to run We've million want customers, us, we because a the $XXX gotten

Brian Peterson

you. Thank


question Roth is next from Your Baldry Capital. Richard with

Richard Baldry


to curious, the it perceived helps you open sort new early broader the over there, acquisition on of value Sort more the of had opportunity international for of whether thoughts differences as front, business. geographies you've TAM experience your incremental the up a integration, given in targets

So, maybe or think that's do could on. you see that once not trend should we it source anything focused of to the a is but continue deal? kind we while, harder a in So be

Jack McDonald

months in three So Europe. internally, XX the question. have a One will that or done But we discussed great we we so. yes, acquisitions more in last do

we which to the rate days but are European let's get can said, a wanted in do do from consolidating we all well. those the that that in So do going And not we That's Europe. our before meaningful we base we so bring acquired products base a that do in to anything products so for we we right Richard at we've And And let's I million run And it strong the Europe. revenue together. operations, this needed real only very early there. of $XXX got create time. we it, can way a of

that. done we've And

to are feel we We'll with where that. about I So digest respect very that. good

or get XXXX, of way in very got a strong Canada, very, see can one again, ton pipeline that attack acquisitions on we'll we pipeline as again another to M&A and then into at start never the any And a Now and guarantees U.S. going beginning we've pipeline. Europe. go looking we in we're but

Richard Baldry

organic sort I'll join question the then chorus of And the on field beating of growth.

than arguably way attractive me revenue times revenue bit. one of or paying times it spend, for get for organic even the more you one growth. Let different ask which for buying back like $X can a revenue ARR you feels It growth when $X inorganic is step you're

how to it of spend it the doesn't sense to into capital you balance versus it do more that short-term? much incremental to where sense about think expectations? away Would expansion got EBITDA into do So you make or maybe that? do think growth going you How make quarter Thanks. so some that the upside to raise is faster organic important ability that you've

Jack McDonald

Thank you.

great question. Another

So with sales consistent again, continue to will things, right. philosophy enablement our we is in two and invest sales

for a into margin should spend a sales to let's that and then wants of overage redirect go and dividend and efficient It additional to marketing where $X at bit and from assume $X ARR ramping $X of that growth million. in the sales we index, growth growth. generate so million margin margin higher, then bookings, expansion. above of to now for EBITDA back that support little an bit of new per blend scale organic does, XX% $X little $XXX but upwardly so marketing scale, But are that a addition, we $XXX that's EBITDA First, above will

So that is the plan.

Richard Baldry

Great. Thanks.
