Ottawa software company Kinaxis tells viewers of its website “We’re Different … But in a Good Way.”
They may be right. Kinaxis Inc. was the top-performing initial public offering on the TSX in 2014. Part of a plethora of emerging “software as a service” companies, Kinaxis eschews heavy spending on sales and marketing, making it more profitable than many better-known vendors. And, perhaps best, Kinaxis shares are still cheaper than many peers, despite their runup over the past few months, possibly due to a lack of attention from investors south of the border.
