Saltlight Capital made the following comment about AppLovin Corporation (NASDAQ:APP) in its second quarter 2023 investor letter:

“Beyond infrastructure, we do own some portfolio investments that we call ‘AI companies in sheep’s clothing‘ (we’re considering making a T-shirt with this on it). These traditional ‘ legacy’ businesses (we can see you rolling your eyes already) have created proprietary AI tools that will drive their future value creation.

One example is AppLovin Corporation (NASDAQ:APP), which connects game publishers and advertisers through its AI model. Applovin earns a ‘tax’ on each successful advertisement and therefore it depends on as much data going through its network as possible. This also widens their moat because more data means better pricing and better targeting for the ecosystem. It’s worth mentioning that having a ‘legacy’ label has been somewhat beneficial for us: last year during the height of the Apple App Tracking fears, we bought this business at a single-digit multiple.”
