Management to outline its path to $1 billion in revenue and 36% Adjusted EBITDA margin by 2026
PowerSchool Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: PWSC) (“PowerSchool” or the “Company”), the leading provider of cloud-based software for K-12 education in North America, will host today its first Investor Day in New York.
At the event, PowerSchool’s management team will present a view of the Company’s long-term strategy, the sizable revenue and profitability growth opportunities in the global K-12 education sector, and 2026 financial targets. Specifically, management will provide insights into the following elements of the business:
- Platform Advantage: The differentiated and broad platform of solutions that has been built over the last 25 years, providing a meaningful competitive moat.
- Attractive Market Dynamics: PowerSchool participates in a multi-trillion-dollar K-12 spending environment that has proven remarkably resilient over the decades, and the under-investment in efficiency-driving technology creates meaningful runway for long-term growth.
- Cross-Selling Opportunity: PowerSchool has nearly $4 billion cross-selling whitespace remaining within the wide and deep presence they have earned with over 80% of the U.S. and Canada K-12 market.
- International Expansion Opportunity: There is a considerable international expansion opportunity to provide PowerSchool’s platform to the over 1 billion students outside of the U.S. and Canada.
- Innovation Engine: The progress in developing data and AI-driven innovations that will drive a future of personalized education for all students and teachers.
- TAM Expansion: How PowerSchool’s global TAM is expected to increase ~10x with the initiatives underway.
- Differentiated Financial Model: Details on PowerSchool’s sustainable and proven financial operating model and how that drives margin and cash flow expansion.
- Long-Term Trajectory: Detailed 2026 objectives for key financial and operating metrics.
“We are excited to host our inaugural Investor Day today and look forward to showcasing PowerSchool’s significant runway for continued profitable growth,” said Hardeep Gulati, PowerSchool CEO. “We have a target of reaching $1 billion in revenue in 2026, and we will outline how our platform, presence, and investments will drive us to this goal while expanding our profitability meaningfully. We expect our powerful combination of predictable revenue in a very large and durable market, continued adoption of our broad platform, differentiated solution innovations, and durable financial model will drive significant shareholder value over the long-term.”
