Intellect Design Arena PICK for 2015

This is a brilliant and logical analysis. Very thorough and gets to the core. Like I have mentioned from my industry experience, they seem to be buying business… As shown in their DSO position and low AMC (when a product company needs to push hard, they will reduce the license costs and AMC comes down as a %). This is expected since IDA is a new entity and has to establish a base. But what worries me most is how they have spread to 14 products… Highly unusual in this industry. Particularly at the early days of growth… And that’s why so much equity dilution.

Disc- I remain invested in a small way. It is the classic Indian product company Frontier that I’m interested in…

Gary temenos clocked in 223 days DSO as I mentioned in the post. Theyre now down to 123. And yes, most companies in this vertical seem to have domain expertise in one product - temenos for consumer, mysis for corporate. i agree that intellect have spread themselves too wide and too soon. need to monitor how capital requirement moves in the next year.

There is a breakout in Intellect price chart and the stock appears to be headed towards 175 initially and towards 220+ in the medium term.

Finally after a year long cliffhanging game it finally raises some hope and feels like a company. Hope management delivers in coming quarters. It has potential to reach back its 52 week high means investors and deep pockets getting in and believing in turnaround of the business.

Business traction intact. Prospects improving,… Markets have taken notice but still shy of commitment.

Company has exceeded market expectation. But at current price is fairly valued. Opportunity window is surely opening up. It is a long term hold as of now

There is potential upside surprise in this company performance. So High risk, High return is how we can describe it.

Intellect has done well recently to both continue the growth momentum and recently won a large deal as above. Ofcourse valuation on a price to earnings multiple is very high. Any insights on how to value product companies which have potential non-linear growth would be appreciated.

Given profitability is currently depressed by product investment etc. EV/ Sales might be a good way of comparing against peers. I think Oracle Financial is c.7x, Majesco is 1.8x odd and Temenos is at 15x odd. IDA itself is 2.4x odd.

Thank you Nprao. Did you add debt to Market cap and took out cash equivalents to calculate EV or is that directly available at some source? Please let me know.
