LONDON, April 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Edison Investment Research, a leading international investment research firm, announces the initiation of full coverage of Balda
Highlights of the analysis on Balda by Edison's healthcare analysts Hans Bostrom and Dr Mick Cooper are as follows:
Balda is a leading international supplier of moulded plastic solutions to manufacturers of medical and technical products, counting key industry leaders as its main clients. Its buy-and-build strategy targeting advanced medical plastics is supported by its vast cash resources resulting from the sale of its mobile telephony assets in 2012. Using DCF, we value Balda at €221m/€3.76 per share, of which financial reserves comprises 87%.
Balda is a German producer of precision plastic components for use in medical devices, eyewear and other industrial applications, such as irrigation, electronics and automotive. It acts mainly as an OEM component supplier with manufacturing in Germany and the US. Balda is looking to develop its own branded products and is likely to use its considerable financial resources to expand through acquisitions, more likely to be small private companies than divisions of larger companies, in our view.
