May 2 -Beacon Securities maintains a "buy" and lowers the target to $0.85 from $1.20.
May 2- First purchase order from the hospitality industry for UR7 Rugged clamshell smartphone. representing a vertical/revenue stream.
In the last six months, SIM.V made some major advancements. It obtained approval from a number bodies (i.e. FCC, IC, CTS, PTCRB, and CE) for its Uniden® UV350 4G/LTE In-Vehicle Device. It secured distribution agreement with CNM Wireless LLC to provide logistics for its devices and accessories for Tier 1 US carriers. It received First Responders contracts valued over $2.5M and integrated the UR7 Rugged Clamshell Device with ESChat.
Additionally, SIM.V was able to expand in other verticals such as: government (municipality), security, and hospitality. SIM.V has also expanded its footprint internationally from Israel and France to New Zealand and Australia.
Even with good earnings for Q3, FCC and IC approval, and $1.9M First Responders order, a selling pressure ensued right after the $4M private placement culminating to a 52 week low of $0.36 cents after the Q4 earning. This is well represented in the chart with the CMF trend from .10 to -0.548.
There is no question that the amount of upcoming warrants are at issue along with 2017 earnings which did not meet the initial target of $20M.
Both these factors are putting a lid on valuation.
However, SIM.V is working on getting its device approval from a Canadian (Q3 2018) and an American (Q4 2018) telco carrier. If this occurs, this will change the current outlook. Based on the steps taken to date (sales, approvals, distribution, and software integration), the likelihood is promising.
Therefore, at the current price, we consider SIM.V to be still discounted.
