Investment Idea Details
The Company

Accolade (ACCD) provides personalized, technology-enabled solutions that help people better understand, navigate, and utilize the healthcare system and their workplace benefits. The company's customers are primarily employers that contract with Accolade to provide their employees and their employees' families (the members) a single place to turn for their health, healthcare, and benefits needs.

The service is designed to drive better healthcare outcomes and increased satisfaction for the participants while lowering costs for the payor. The company provides its services to customers throughout the United States.

Market Opportunity

According to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), in 2017, approximately 176 million individuals in the United States, or more than 50% of the insured population, were enrolled in an employer-sponsored health plan, accounting for $1.0 trillion in total healthcare spend.

Employer adoption of solutions and services to address cost and quality of care pain points is expected to rapidly increase. According to Willis Towers Watson, the percentage of employers offering tools or services to support employee navigation of healthcare services is expected to increase from 59% in 2018 to 85% in 2020.


Accolade derives a significant portion of revenue from largest customers. The loss of any of these customers, or renegotiation of any of contracts with these customers, could negatively impact financial results.

Accolade may face intense competition, which could limit the ability to maintain or expand market share within the industry, and if it does not maintain or expand market share, business and operating results will be harmed.


Over the past 12 months (at the end of February 2020), Accolade's annual revenue was $132.5 million. Over the past year, the company's revenue grew by 40%. Accolade (ACCD) plans to raise $180 million at $19-21 per share. The company's IPO market capitalization on will be $1 billion.

The P/S ratio will be 7.5x at the offering. Similar public companies are WELL.TO (P/S is 10x, revenue growth is 38%), PHR (P/S is 8x with sales growth of 18%). Comparing Accolade with these companies and taking into account revenue growth of 40%, we can forecast that the equity value after the IPO will be $1.4 billion. This investment idea has a medium return potential of up to 40%.

How IPO Investments Work
1. Collection of funds

2-3 weeks before the start of the company publishes information about the opening of trading: financial statements for 3 years, a description of the company's business, plans for the future, as well as the risks that management sees in their own business. We analyze such offers and publish the best ones. Investors apply for deposits. Before the deadline for applications, you can change the request or cancel it.

Threshold amount
2. Buy shares

We submit one large application for the purchase of shares by pre-subscription with reduced price to large investors. The application may be rejected in part or in full. Over the past three years, our applications have been rejected only three times. The next day, or every other day, we'll know at what price and at what percentage the order is executed, and we'll post it on «The my investment page».

Submit applications before

3. Start Bidding

The price of shares is rising from the first day due to the demand of investors deprived of the opportunity to buy shares before trading. Most of the stocks we've been recommending buying over the past three years have been starting to trade on the stock exchange at tens of percent higher than the price at which customers bought the shares. There comes a Lock up period when it is forbidden to sell shares purchased by subscription. Typically lasts 3 months.

Early profit fixation

Although no shares are allowed to be sold during the lock-up period, our traders seek to offer investors fixed profit by way of using various financial instruments, including forwards, options, short positions etc.

From the investor’s point of view this means that he or she may close an investment by paying a certain part of its value (as a rule, approximately 15 percent). This is due to high prices for the instruments which are employed to ensure availability of fixed profit. As such, you shall press any relevant button in the Investor Account as soon as it is active.

The closing procedure is similar to commencement of investment business. You shall file a bid which is executed within a business day by UT. So, your investment is closed at the price currently prevailing on the stock exchange. However, we rarely recommend using this feature, since upon expiry of an applicable lock-up period the average performance is higher.



3 per cent of the share price. This fee is charged as soon as your investment bid is confirmed.


1.75 per cent of the purchase price paid for your shares as soon as trading is closed. This fee is charged upon closure of any relevant investment.


20 per cent of the profit your derive. This fee is charged only if you show positive performance as of the moment any relevant investment is closed.


Usually, 15 per cent (depends on the stock exchange environment). It is calculated per each investment individually.
