KAPE have been tipped tonight here: Https://masterinvestor.co.uk/equities/what-a-result-great-numbers-from-three-top-performing-small-caps/?utm_source=Daily+Bulletin&utm_campaign=246fbf5634-Daily_Bulletin_20191031&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_25eff0bb7f-246fbf5634-34898813 "KAPE TECHNOLOGIES I first covered this next company in the April 2018 edition of this magazine. AIM-listed Kape Technologies (LON:KAPE) is a consumer security software as a service (SaaS) business which changed its name from Crossrider last year to reflect a shift in strategic focus. While the shares are down from 86.5p to the current 78.5p since my initial report, they have surpassed 135p during that time and investors have also enjoyed a special dividend of 3.55p per share. But with two acquisitions recently completed and the business making strong operational progress, I believe the story is worth revisiting. Kape currently develops and distributes a variety of digital products in the online-security space, offering products which provide online security and privacy. Since my last report, Kape has disposed of its non-core media division, leaving app distribution as the core operating segment. Key subscription-based products include; CyberGhost, an online privacy application; Reimage PC/Mac, which can fix a PC or Mac and restore peak performance via the internet with 24/7 support; and DriveFix, which scans computers for outdated drivers. Expanding its suite of products, Kape made two complementary acquisitions in 2018, putting to use some of the £45.9 million it raised at IPO in 2014 but hadn’t really touched since. July last year saw the $16 million purchase of Intego, a leading Mac and iOS cybersecurity and malware protection SaaS business, headquartered in Seattle.. Then in October, the company bought ZenMate for €4.8 million. This is a digital privacy company, headquartered in Berlin, focused on encrypting and securing internet connections and protecting individuals’ privacy and digital data. While Kape announced in July that its interim results would be in line with expectations, the shares oddly fell by around 20% over the next two weeks. Investors had nothing to fear, however, as the final numbers showed revenues up by 24% to $29.9 million for the six months to June. Kape now has over one million subscribers across its product base, up 24% over the previous year, with the customer-retention ratio improving from 74% at the end of 2018 to 82% − one of the highest in the consumer SaaS space. Notably, recurring revenues more than quadrupled to $21.2 million, providing strong visibility of earnings. Elsewhere, both of the acquired businesses were said to be performing in line with expectations, with $1.7 million in annualised cost savings identified in ZenMate. At the adjusted EBITDA level (relevant for Kape given high non-cash charges) profits grew by 21% to $5.8 million. The balance sheet remained strong with cash of $36.4 million as at 30 June and no debt. The outlook for the second half was positive, with management saying it remains confident in delivering year-on-year growth for the current financial year, in line with market expectations. Hack into growth The interim results showed how ambitious Kape is. Comments from chief executive Ido Erlichman, included: “We have significant ambitions for Kape…”and …”we firmly believe much more is possible.” With profitable operations and a large cash backing, I believe that the company looks very well placed for further growth in the personal digital-safety market, which was estimated to be worth $10 billion in 2018. Kape is currently being valued by the markets at £116 million. For the 2020 financial year, broker Shore Capital is looking for revenues of $83 million, pre-tax profit of $16.3 million and earnings of 9.2 cents (7.33p) per share. It’s worth noting that further earnings visibility comes from the sale of the media division, with Kape receiving a 50% share of EBITDA from the business for the next five years as consideration for the deal. Assuming targets are met then the forward price earnings multiple is just 10.7 times for 2020. Strip out the cash balances and that falls to a very low eight times, at the bottom end of the wider software and computer-services sector."

I agree. I would not be surprised if a trade sale is the end game that Ido Erlichman/Teddy Sagi are looking at. The valuations that AVG and now SOPHOS have achieved are far in excess of what this market seems to want to offer

A small extract … Net cash is US$36.4m or 20p a share. Shore Cap forecasts eps of 6.8 cents for the current year and 9.2 cents next, to drop the soon to be prospective PE to 8.9. An acquisition will electrify things before long. Keep buying.

John- am sure you mean well, but these posts are not really relevant to Kape, who are consumer not business orientated and I think we all know that cyber-security is a problem and growing. Any news specific to Kape is, of course, very welcome.
