TEL AVIV, Israel, May 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The TASE analysis project was launched in 2016 in order to raise investor awareness to TASE listed technology and life-science companies and the markets in which these companies operate, thus creating appropriate pricing and increasing the exposure of investors from Israel and abroad. Its goal is to encourage investments in these companies by improving understanding of their industries and markets.
In order to maintain professional, independent and unbiased analysis, the companies signed an agreement with TASE to receive the analysis services for an obligatory period of two years. The companies cannot withdraw from the project during this period. The analysis is funded by the companies surveyed with funding from the Chief Scientist and TASE
Summary of Highlights
The company presented a plan to increase efficiency with signs already visible in the fourth quarter report; working to increase the number of users, mainly in Brazil and Russia; target price unchanged.
The company is in a streamlining process in which revenues have not yet improved, but expenses have decreased significantly and liquidity has improved:
- Revenues for the year 2018 were $ 1.23 million, compared to $ 1.344 million last year; the gross loss decreased by $ 200,000, mainly due to the decrease in cost of sales in 2018 compared to 2017, due to a real decrease in content costs due to a decrease in the Company's activity.
- The net loss for the period amounted to $ 5.7 million in 2018, compared to a higher loss of $ 6.0 million in the corresponding period.
- Cash flows used for operations totaled approximately $ 3.2 million, compared with approximately $ 5.7 million in the same period last year. The decrease is mainly due to the acquisition of content rights in 2017 and a decrease in the Company's needs in view of the efficiency mentioned above.
Vonetize is in the process of significantly increasing efficiency with signs of impact already seen in Q4 2018 as the company's burn rate decreased to $120,000 a month from about $235,000 a month.
The company is now trying to increase its revenues mainly in the markets in which it operates - Brazil and Russia. The company, according to its management, has completed integration of the system with a customer in Brazil and has signed a distribution agreement with several cellular operators in Brazil and therefore user growth is expected. In the background, the company signed a financing agreement for its marketing plan.
In light of the developments described above, we reduce the value of the company to NIS 32 million (approximately USD 9 million); target price now ranges between 0.67 NIS to 0.92 NIS and on average is 0.79 NIS.
