Namely Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

This is truly an extraordinarily difficult time, after the downsizing, the company is (re)starting with a clean sheet. The perspective they embrace now is fairly conservative, making certain assumptions about how new customers will buy, how existing customers will increase or decrease headcount, and how many businesses will be closed and never to come back. All this to secure a steady future.

In 2018, Namely was funded $60m by GGV Capital and Tenaya Capital. A year earlier, in January, Namely added another $50m in its funding from Altimeter Capital and Scale Venture Partners.

Namely Risks and Challenges

Amid coronavirus pandemic in 2020, Namely laid off about 40% of its roughly 400 employees, among which the company's Chief Financial Officer Daniel Murphy. Namely had a modest growth plan, which had been made uncertain because of [COVID-19]. The company now is just trying to control what it can and to structure itself so it can operate more efficiently with a major drop-off in revenue.

In 2019, Namely's board of directors appointed Larry Dunivan as a new CEO, and the company's CTO Paul Rogers left his post. These transitions in their leadership could drive different strategies and goals.
