The update note includes information on the Medigus’ financial results, management commentary, recent developments, outlook, risks, and our revised valuation estimates.
The update note is available here. Highlights from the note include:
- Investment in Deep Tech – In line with the company’s strategy to invest in the industries of the future, Medigus recently announced that it has entered into an agreement to invest in ABI Energy Ltd. (ABI), a deep-tech company developing technology driven-solutions to optimize and improve fluid transportation including the global water, oil, and gas pipeline transportation infrastructure. The goal of ABI’s products is to reduce pump energy consumption by up to 25% in the water, oil, and gas industries. The company invested $300,000 in cash and issued $400,000 worth of its ADRs and currently holds a 19.17% stake in the company.
- Strong momentum continues – Medigus has displayed strong momentum across its three divisions. Gix Internet, a global MarTech solutions provider in which the company holds an approximately 41.56% stake reported revenue growth of approximately 19% year-over-year surpassing the $45 million for the full year ended December 31, 2021. Medigus expects to own a controlling stake by the end of this year significantly contributing to revenues and the balance sheet. The company’s recent investment into drone technology is also yielding results in the form of partnerships with global automotive manufacturers. Polyrizon Ltd., Medigus’s healthcare investment presented pre-clinical data demonstrating that its Capture and Contain (C&C) technology, PL-15 product candidate, has demonstrated the potential to reduce the infection rates of the highly transmissible coronavirus Omicron variant BA.1 in a cell culture assay.
- Robust financial performance – The company reported robust financial performance for the year ended 2021. The consolidated revenue was $10.12 million including the $2.4 million received in lieu of know-how licensing and sale of goods relating to the MUSE system. Revenue from Eventer and Jeff’s Brands amounted to $1.18 million and $6.51 million respectively. The company has a healthy financial position with negligible debt and a cash balance of $24.02 million. The current cash position provides a cushion to the current operating cash burn rate of $5 to $6 million, while allowing management to increase its holding in the underlying companies or look for other emerging investments.
- Valuation – We have updated our financial model adjusting for a minority stake in ABI energy Ltd. Rolling over our valuation approach yielded a per-share value of $3.27 or $78.06 million contingent on successful execution by the company. The company displayed robust financial performance, driven by growth in the online technologies segment. Given the unique high-risk-reward opportunity, we view MDGS as a suitable investment for institutional and high-risk-tolerant retail investors.
