In particular, we estimate an FY23E Value of Production equal to € 63.70 million, and an EBITDA equal to € 6.00 ​​million, corresponding to a margin of 9.4%. In the following years, we expect the Value of Production to rise to € 80.00 million (CAGR FY22A – FY25E: 9.6%) in FY25E, with EBITDA equal to € 9.20 million (corresponding to a margin of 11.5%), up from € 4.02 million in FY22A (corresponding to an EBITDA Margin of 6.6%).

We conducted our valuation of the equity value of SolidWorld Group based on the DCF method and multiples of a sample of comparable companies. The DCF method (including, for prudential purposes, a specific risk of 2.5% in the calculation of the WACC) returned an equity value of € 126.8 million. Using market multiples, the equity value of SolidWorldGroup was € 86.5 million (including a 25,0% discount). The result is an average equity value of approximately € 106.7 million. The target price is € 9.15, BUY rating and MEDIUM risk.
