In the last six months, EGT.V has delivered on revenue growth and expanding its distribution network. The day before the Q3 earning release, a further commitment by DHCT II Luxemborg SARL for $1.3M was reported. Nonetheless, in the Q3 earnings growth was evident. EGT.V reported $1.35M in revenue for Q3 2018 vs. $0.178M in Q3 2017, and $3.7M vs. $0.778M for the respective nine month periods.
While, EGT,V still shows a net loss it has been drastically reduced from previous quarter; $0.21M in Q3 2018 vs. $1.14M in Q3 2017. However, for the respective nine month periods those losses remained flat at $3.1M (2018) vs. $3.2M (2017). These are mostly related to expenses. Also worth noting is that cash on hand continues to be steady at $0.7M for both the quarters and year over year nine month period.
On the distribution front, EGT.V made numerous announcements. In addition to delivering on orders in Hawaii, the company made significant advances in Australia with numerous partners. Most importantly EGT.V received an approval with the South Australian Home Battery Scheme and CEFC Home Battery Financing which provides them access to $100M in subsidies.
In addition, EGT.V added a number of partners in some key jurisdiction such as: Benelux, Turkey, Middle East, Africa, Central Asia, Georgia (USA), Cayman, Turks and Caicos, Puerto Rico, Canada, California, Florida, and Bermuda amongst others.
Mackie Research recently reiterated a $0.70 cent target. In his note Nikhil Thadani cited: "the positive South Australian program inclusion could lead to additional order intake of ~$5 million in early C2019, i.e., double EGT's existing order book". He stated that he believes that the quarterly revenue will likely to be within the $2-$3M range in 2019. He also indicated that EGT.V will likely be re-valuated by the market.
The key factor in EGT.V's re-valuation will be related to its ability to maintain and lower expense as it scale on revenue. As a result, we believe that the target cited should be more within $0.40 to $0.60 cents. Either way, EGT.V is no doubt set for a price increase in 2019. As evidenced by the chart, valuation remained flat for the period but accumulation has been ongoing for five months ending with the most recent market correction.
While the market is flickering, EGT.V is indeed charging on many fronts.
