Ispire Technology Inc. (ISPR:NASDAQ) has acquired an ODM relationship with a global e-cigarette brand and expects orders leading to US$100M in yearly revenue, according to a Roth MKM research note.

Roth MKM analyst Nick Anderson, in a research report published on June 7, 2024, reiterated a Buy rating and a 12-month price target of US$11.00 on Ispire Technology Inc. (ISPR:NASDAQ) following the company's recent announcements focused on expanding its global presence as a leading vape hardware technology provider.

"ISPR continues to expand globally, with recent announcements focusing on building a global brand/distribution as a leading vape hardware technology," Anderson noted. "The company secured a meaningful ODM relationship with a leading global e-cigarette brand and expects orders leading to US$100M in annual revenue."

Ispire Technology has secured an original design manufacture (ODM) relationship with a leading global e-cigarette brand, which is expected to result in the supply of more than 33 million units in FY25, generating approximately US$100 million in annual top-line revenue.

"We believe the changing regulations around vape products (banning of disposable vapes in EU countries) and ISPR's broad offerings of vape device systems (pods and refillables), along with new age-verification technology, will lead to ongoing ODM agreements as vape brands look to higher-quality device design," Anderson stated.

The analyst also highlighted Ispire Technology's recent launch of Burna Boy's BRKFST lifestyle brand in over 750 stores in Africa, with plans to expand in the Middle East and Europe.

"Expanding ODM, third-party brand partnerships and its own Aspire brand globally should lead to higher top-line growth as partnerships and products launch," Anderson commented.

Ispire Technology continues to focus on developing authentication and age-verification technology for both the e-cigarette and cannabis vape markets. While the analyst initially expected age verification at the point of use to be essential for a potential successful FDA PMTA application and e-cigarette product approval in the U.S. nicotine market, he now sees the opportunity for Ispire Technology to license its age-verification technology to large e-cigarette brands.

The company has also strengthened its executive leadership team, with the appointment of Jim McCormick as CFO, John Patterson as Sr. VP of Int'l Nicotine, Dennis Lider as Sr. VP of Cannabis Product Sales, and David Hessler as Sr. VP of Operations. "The hires upgrade their senior-level positions as the company grows and expands into a larger company," Anderson noted.

Roth MKM's US$11 price target on Ispire Technology shares is based on the firm's valuation approach, which considers the company's growth potential, expanding global opportunities, and the strength of its vape hardware technology offerings.
