It’s hard to believe how fast the time has flown. This past weekend marked an important and special moment in the history of Smartsheet: the one-year anniversary of our IPO on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: SMAR). The IPO was, no doubt, an energizing moment for our team, but more importantly, it provided us the platform to take giant steps forward in better serving you, our customers. It enabled us to accelerate our product development efforts, expand our geographic footprint, and increase our awareness in the market. Those efforts — and more — served to significantly raise the profile of the Collaborative Work Management market in the eyes of customers, analysts, and investors.
Becoming a public company also brought with it an increased scrutiny, a spotlight that holds us more accountable for our actions and results. The discipline and focus required to operate at scale in the public markets keeps us sharp, and always mindful of the trust placed in us by customers and investors of all types and sizes. We are better positioned to serve both our customers and our investors by operating in the full transparency of the public markets.
We are still early in our journey as a public company and much work remains to be done, but the Smartsheet team is executing against a common vision to empower everyone to improve how they work, and we remain intensely focused on delivering customer success.
Our IPO was a powerful moment for our company and our industry, and we are resolved to seize that moment to deliver against our mission. Thank you to our employees for their dedication and commitment to serving our customers. Thank you to our customers and investors for your trust and confidence in Smartsheet. We look forward to continue to earn your trust by expanding on the strong foundation that we’ve built since last year’s IPO.
