Wasatch Micro Cap Growth—U.S. Strategy made the following comment about CS Disco, Inc. (NYSE:LAW) in its Q4 2022 investor letter:
“CS Disco, Inc. (NYSE:LAW) has faced significant challenges recently. This legal-technology company provides a cloud-based platform of artificial-intelligence solutions for e-discovery, legal-document review and case management. Because CS Disco has a limited history as a publicly traded company and is aggressively spending cash to fund its growth, skeptical investors drove the stock price down. Moreover, the legal-document review segment of the company’s business depends on incremental usage that’s extremely volatile because the segment is very early in the adoption cycle. Based on our visit and our discussions with customers, we’re cautiously optimistic that adoption will ramp up, volatility will decline and revenue per client will grow. In addition, CS Disco’s large cash position could help the company to realize the market opportunity for its cloud-based platform, which we believe has the potential to make the legal industry much more efficient.”
