BALTIMORE, April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and microcap sectors, announced today that it has released a new article on LiveDeal, Inc. (NASDAQ – LIVE). The article discusses how LiveDeal's successful M&A history impacts its new strategy. To view the sponsored research article, previous LIVE reports and updates, along with disclosures and disclaimers, or to download them in their entirety, please visit www.GoldmanResearch.com.
In the article, analyst Rob Goldman provides details on what to expect from LiveDeal's proposed acquisition strategy.
"Since the closing of the Modern Everyday deal late last year, the Company has enjoyed substantial revenue growth and behind-the-scenes synergy via the Company's e-commerce platform. In fact, for the fourth quarter of 2014, record revenue of $8 million was up 1200% year-over-year and was largely boosted by Modern Everyday sales. Going forward, management expects continued meaningful top-line growth from this subsidiary and that the execution of another revenue-generating acquisition could generate positive future results."
Goldman notes that, "Judging by past success, a new acquisition in the technology or retail arena could take the Company to a new level just due to size alone, if the target(s) produces meaningful revenue. Plus, since management has demonstrated an unheralded ability to integrate seemingly disparate business models into a high-growth, high gross margin company, potential operating leverage and cross-sale opportunities from a new acquisition could have a very positive impact on LiveDeal's valuation."
"Believing that its stock is undervalued at present, management was quoted in its press release saying that it may consider using traditional debt financing to execute an acquisition versus an equity-based or equity-heavy deal. This is likely welcome news to current investors as management can take advantage of record low interest rates, while shareholders would not be subject to dilution. Furthermore, the Company's current balance sheet appears to have enough leverage to support a debt financing."
