Pointer Telocation

Driven by technology

Outlook | Technology | 14 Mar 2018

Pointer Telocation (PNTR) has, to a significant extent, transformed itself into a proprietary technology company over the last 18 months, resulting in major contract wins in driver behaviour systems (DBS), connected car (CC) and sensor-based IoT monitoring systems. The group’s ability to cross-sell new services to its extensive customer base as well as enter new markets and geographies, combined with high operating leverage, gives it above-average earnings growth potential. We now value PNTR at parity with the telematics sector, giving rise to a 6% increase in valuation to $20.8 (NIS71.8) per share.

Strong foundations for future growth

Update | Technology | 27 Nov 2017

Pointer Telocation (PNTR) achieved a strong performance in both product and services revenues in the third quarter supported by 16% y-o-y organic subscriber growth and a boost to product margins from increased sales of higher-quality telematics units. PNTR looks set to derive substantial cost synergies in 2018 from the integration of Cielo Telecom’s operations in Brazil and we foresee the potential for the new CelloTrack Nano IoT tracker product to emerge as a major profit driver following strong recent interest in the market. We have increased our 2017 and 2018 EBITDA forecasts and reduced our fair discount to peer multiples, resulting in an increase in our peer multiple valuation from $15.4 to $19.3 (NIS 67.8) per share, and an 11% increase in our DCF valuation to $18.1 (NIS 63.6)per share.

Right time, right places

Update | Technology | 11 Sep 2017

Pointer Telocation (PNTR) has released record Q217 results showing the success of recent sales initiatives, particularly in the fleet management side, as well as the benefits of high operating leverage via its SaaS model, which resulted in an almost doubling of PBT vs Q216. With earnings underpinned by strong recurring revenue streams, a major new $2-3m pa CelloTrack Nano product order from the US and strong prospects for PNTR’s connected car and Internet of Vehicles offerings, we have increased our 2017 and 2018 normalised EPS forecasts by 16% and 5%, respectively and increased our DCF and peer-based valuations to $16.3/share and $15.4/share, respectively.

Great start to the year, and more in the pipeline

Update | Technology | 05 Jun 2017

Pointer Telocation (PNTR) has reported solid Q1 figures backed by strong 25% subscriber growth and 7% growth in per subscriber revenues. Boosted by operating leverage this translated into wider service margins and a 43% increase in operating profit. In coming quarters, as individual fleet vehicles are equipped with PNTR's telematics, subscriber revenues from the FEMSA and NYC taxicab contracts should start to boost group revenues. We see Q117 as a good start to the year and, with management discussing similar contracts with other companies and exploring new acquisitions, more good news is likely to follow in the coming quarters. We have increased our multiple based valuation by 26% to $13.6 (NIS48.9) per share, while maintaining our DCF valuation at $14.9 (NIS53.6) per share.

Taking a ride with Uber

Flash note | Technology | 30 Jan 2017

Pointer Telocation (PNTR) has won a five-year contract to provide fleet management and driver behaviour monitoring services for 4,000 New York black cars and car service vehicles working for online transportation network companies (TNC), including Uber and Lyft. The contract, announced on 17 January, represents PNTR’s first foray into the US market, which has been made possible by the group’s recent move into cloud-based SaaS services. Although small in revenue terms, the contract looks to have significant upside potential for the group. It should considerably raise the group’s profile in the US in the growth area of driver monitoring, even more-so as global ADAS leader Mobileye is working with PNTR in the project (providing ADAS services). If successful, we see very good prospects for it to lead to further business from the fast-growing TNC sector across the US and internationally, as well as from other forms of for-hire vehicles in NYC.

Improving top-line trend affected by one-offs

Update | Technology | 30 Nov 2016

Pointer Telocation (PNTR) is a telematics company with a focus on Israel and Latin America. In addition to sales of its own telematics devices, the group generates high recurring revenues from mobile resource management services. The results for the first nine months support our top-line and normalised full year profit expectations, representing 74-76% of our forecast FY revenue and EBIT. We have nevertheless cut our current year PBT forecast by 6% to account for higher finance and one-off costs. PNTR’s forward P/E discount to the sector has widened from 34% to 37% in recent weeks and we see potential for a re-rating on stronger earnings growth, which should be driven by the recent acquisition of Cielo Telecom in Brazil, a strong pipeline of new products and rising service margins.
