In a December 9 research note, eResearch Corp.'s Director of Equity Research Chris Thompson CFA, MBA, P.Eng., commented that as consumer concerns drive governments to enact stricter consumer privacy laws and place restrictions on the use of online tracking via "cookies," Canadian software development and technology company Datable Technology Corp.'s (DAC:TSX.V; TTMZF:OTCQB) solutions are well positioned to focus on and profit from first-party data collection.
The report indicated that Datable's revenue is expected to grow by 70% next year and 50% over the following four years.
According to eResearch, "Datable's platform delivers first-party data collection, analytics, and monetization via a software as a service (SaaS) technology, allowing brands to engage consumers and build relationships."
The company is focused primarily on the consumer online advertising and marketing sectors and has developed a consumer lifecycle and data management platform which it calls PLATFORM³. Datable Technology's SaaS platform offers the tools for consumer brands and consumer packaged goods (CPG) firms to create, launch and manage promotions, unique offers and loyalty programs accessible by mobile phones, websites and microsites.
The firm then focuses its efforts on collecting and parsing through this extremely valuable first-party customer mined data which allows its clients to further build upon and directly expand its relationship and communication with consumers.
The analyst noted that Datable is heading into an accelerated growth phase after achieving a 91% year-over-year increase in Q3/21 revenues. The report indicated that Datable's revenue is expected to grow by 70% next year and 50% over the following four years. The firm's transformative Dabbl acquisition will serve to create a company that is projected to attain nearly CA$6 million in pro-forma FY/21 revenue.
Notably, Datable presently provides services to a strong base of Fortune 500 customers which includes 25 large CPG companies and 50 of the world's most well-known consumer brands including Henkel, Kimberly Clark, and Proctor & Gamble.
eResearch mentioned that Datable is presently trading at 1.0x its 2022 (combined companies) revenue estimate of CA$9.9 million, which is far below other Canadian SaaS comparable companies. The report stated that the company's low revenue multiple versus SaaS peers offers potential price appreciation for Datable shareholders.
The analyst estimates the firm will generate CA$3.0 million in revenues during FY/21 rising to CA$9.9 million in FY/22.
eResearch Corp. advised that it is initiating coverage on Datable Technology Corp. with a "Speculative Buy" rating and a target price of CA$0.30 per share. The firm's shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "DAC" and last closed for trading at CA$0.65 per share on Friday, December 10, 2021. The company's shares additionally trade under the ticker symbol "TTMZF" on the OTCQB Venture Market.
