May 23 - Reports $3.04M in Q1 2019.
In the last period, SIM.V went from $0.56 cents to $27 cents and even managed to score a new 52 week low ($0.26 cents).
During that time the company launched the Uniden UV350 on Pelephone (Israel), AT&T, Verizon, and Rogers. It also made it available in new markets such as Saudi Arabia and Sweden. To date, SIM.V announced orders with Distributors, School Buses, Taxi , Industrial and Commercial Fleet among other end clients. It is also reportedly undergoing trial with a US Ride Sharing Company, and integrating UV350 functionalities with a US Automobile Manufacturer.
SIM.V also launched Desktop Ditchpatch Unit (UV350), and integrated it with AT&T Workforce and Enhanced AT&T Push to Talk, as well as, proprietary software such as CrisisGo along with partnering with Tango Tango. In addition, SIM.V also received a $0.3M Software Contract from a number of Enterprise clients.
Displayed below, the earnings to date in 2019 (un-audited) for Q1, Q2, and Q3 reflect roughly $10M in revenue year to date (40% less than 2018). However, the performance in Q3 was almost better than Q1 and Q2 combined. Furthermore, the Comprehensive Loss to date are $5.72M (57% less than 2018).
Since then, the company has announced a number of purchase orders: $0.95M (Nov. 18), $1.8M (Nov. 26), $3M-$5M (Dec. 14), $0.45M (Dec. 10) and $0.9M (Dec.16). Excluding Dec.14 order, the total is $4.1M which could meet FY 2018 earnings.
Hence, it comes to no surprise that Stonegate Capital Partners initiated coverage on November 8 with a target of $0.97 ($0.70 to $1.43) and Fundamental Research revised its target on Dec. 3 (from $1.27 to $1.14). Paradigm? Beacon? Unheard.
Indeed, a Market & Markets study illustrates that PTT is set to grow from $25B (2019) to $38.4B in 2024; 9% CAGR.
Furthermore, the study specifies that North America is the primary market. To date, SIM.V is already working with major players such as AINA Wireless, AT&T, Verizon, Bell Canada, and Rogers. Listed below are others to watch for.
Yet valuation remains weak. Yesterday. SIM.V closed at $0.28 cents, representing 44% less than the closing price of April 29, 2019 when it reported its annual earnings. Financing does have a role to play here. In August 2019, SIM.V raised $3M from a strategic investor ($0.40 cents; Warrant $.60 cents) and announced on December 4th a $10M in Unsecured Debentures convertibles at $0.45 cents (Brokers shares: $0.415 cents) and raised $7.8M of it. As depicted by the above chart, this definitely put some downward pressure on the stock price from which recovery is yet to be seen.
However, if one look at Level II activity from January 2, 2020 - a clear pattern emerges. Other than Mackie, large Canadian Banks have been buyers but on the sell side, Anonymous account for 54% of the total sellers.
In fact, Anonymous sell transactions have a mean of 2,974 shares, with a median value of 1000 shares and a mode of 500 shares. Hence, SIM.V valuation continues not to reflect its achievements to date as it is confined to an algorithmic grind.
