LONDON, Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Edison Investment Research, a leading international investment research firm, has issued a short note on Single Touch Systems (OTCBB: SITO), a technology driven mobile media marketing company with expertise in push notifications, abbreviated dial codes, loyalty rewards, location based marketing and campaign management.

Edison's 18 November QuickView, Zoove licence signals value in patent portfolio, states that the Zoove settlement helps validate Single Touch Systems' IP strategy, which is being accelerated following recent high-profile recruitment. The company's mobile media division is cash flow positive and growing, and management has signalled its confidence in the outlook by announcing a 20m share buyback programme. This should provide some downside support to the share price.The patent portfolio provides some option value.

The brief analysis by Edison's technology team shows the operating division is profitable and has a recurring and growing revenue stream, which with an operationally geared business model should convert to strong earnings growth.
