Netcall (NET) : Corp

AGM statement

Key data

  • Share price (p) 22.2
  • Target price (p) 90.0
  • Market cap (£m) 31.8
  • Enterprise value (£m) 30.7

Netcall has stated that it is trading in line with management expectations and ahead of the same period last year in a reassuring AGM statement. Encouragingly, the company has seen increased traction in both the customer engagement and Low-code solutions, and we expect this to support our forecasts. This is further strengthened by the growing pipeline, driven by a number of cloud-based opportunities. We note the Board guides that current political and economic uncertainties may affect customer decision making, and accordingly continue to monitor the timing of its larger contracts. Netcall’s net cash breakeven (£0.0m) is also in line with expectations for FY20E (net cash of £0.3m) and target FY FCF of £1.0m after expanded investment for growth, and we make no changes to forecasts. We continue to believe that Netcall’s visibility is improving. Target price of 90p reiterated and we look forward to interims in the new year.
