following with regards

             Disclose the actual net revenue retention rate for each period

             Include a discussion regarding the correlation between the net
revenue retention rates
              achieved during each period and the success of your
land-and-expand business
             Revise to relabel this measure as a pro-forma measure. In this
regard, we note that
              revenue used in such calculations assumes the acquisitions
occurred on the first day
              of the period presented.

11.      You state that you have acquired 49 companies since your inception,
including 14 in 2019
         and 9 in 2020. Please provide a balanced discussion regarding any
material challenges
         related to these acquisitions. Discuss the "framework for
identification, execution,
         integration, and onboarding of targets" that you reference.
Key Business and Financial Metrics, page 66

12.      You state that normalized growth rate is a key performance indicator
used by management
         to assess your "consolidated operating performance" over time.
However, this measure
         appears to present the growth rate in your pro forma revenues. Please
confirm whether
         that is the case and, if so, revise to refer it as a pro forma revenue
growth rate measure.
         Also, explain further how this allows you to measure organic revenue
growth and discuss
         the underlying factors that contributed to the decrease in this
measure from 15.8% in 2019
         and 6.7% in 2020. Lastly, considering you have provided pro forma
revenue information,
         tell us your consideration to also include supplemental pro forma
information regarding
         the impact of acquisitions on your expenses and overall results of
Non-GAAP Financial Measures, page 67

13.      Please revise your reconciliation of adjusted gross profit to
reconcile to the most directly
         comparable GAAP measure of gross profit. Ensure that the GAAP gross
profit measure
         provided in the reconciliation includes depreciation and amortization
expense pursuant to
         SAB Topic 11B. Also, revise your discussion of this non-GAAP measure,
as necessary,
         to ensure that it appropriately describes this measure and its
usefulness pursuant to
         the revised reconciliation. Refer to Item 10(e)(i)(A) of Regulation
14.      We note you include an adjustments for acquisition-related deferred
revenue in your
         calculation of Adjusted EBITDA. Considering deferred revenue was
adjusted to fair value
         in accordance with GAAP at the time of your acquisitions, please tell
us how you
         considered whether such adjustment is substituting an individually
tailored recognition
         and measurement method for one of GAAP. Refer to Question 100.04 of
the Non-GAAP
         Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations and Rule 100(b) of
Regulation G.
15.      We also note that Adjusted EBITDA excludes acquisition related
non-recurring costs and
         amortization of capitalized contract acquisition costs. Considering
you have acquired
         several businesses during each of the last several years, and as you
state you are currently
         tracking over 10,000 software businesses as potential acquisition
targets, please tell us
         how you considered whether acquisition related costs are normal cash
operating expenses
         for your business. Similarly, explain whether sales commissions are
normal cash
         operating expenses necessary to operate your business. Refer to
Question 100.01 of the
         Non-GAAP Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations.
16.      While you refer to Adjusted Unlevered Free Cash Flow as a performance
         considering it is reconciled to GAAP operating cash flow, it appears

convenience without
         penalty by providing appropriate notice. Please tell us how you
considered this fact when
         calculating the amount of remaining performance obligations. In this
regard, for
         arrangements that include such termination provisions, tell us how you
determined that
         they meet the definition of a contract under ASC 606-10-25-1 through

         considering your contract terms can range up to five years, tell us
the periods in which you
         expect to recognize the 57% of remaining performance obligations
included in

time bands for your

         shares, Silver Lake purchased an additional 17.7 million shares of
Series B stock.
         However, as per the roll-forward of Series B shares, it appears such

stock at the date of
         such grants. To the extent there were any significant fluctuations in
the fair values from
         period-to-period, describe for us the factors that contributed to
these fluctuations,
         including any intervening events within the company or changes in your

expense related to

address whether the
         various transactions described herein, such as the Preferred Stock
Conversion, the Class B

of these awards,

with these
