In the light of the results published in the half-yearly report for 1H22A, we modify our previous estimates both for the current year and for the coming years. In particular, we estimate FY22E revenues of € 32.00 million and EBITDA Adj. of € -0.30 million, corresponding to a marginality of -0.9%. For subsequent years, we expect the revenues to increase up to € 50.00 million (CAGR 21A-25E: 17.4%) in FY25E, with EBITDA Adj. of € 3.80 million (corresponding to an EBITDA Adj. margin of 7.6%), up from € -0.45 million in FY21A (corresponding to an EBITDA Adj. margin of -1.7%).
We have conducted the valuation of L&C’s equity value based on the DCF methodology. For prudential purposes, we have included a specific risk of 2.5%. This results in a WACC of 6.80%. With the above data and taking as a reference our estimates and assumptions, the result is an equity value of € 25.3 million. The target price is, therefore, € 4.05 (prev. € 4.30), BUY rating and MEDIUM risk.Leggi il pdf
