Price September 27, 2007-$3.28
We are recommending TISA for purchase. TISA is trading at 60% of our valuation, which is a bit higher than we like but, if they do what they say they are going to do, our valuation should go higher soon.
After a very weak first quarter, Q2 results (6/30/2007) showed sales up 24% to $6.1 million, gross margin was 62%, and the company made $109,000 or $.01 per share on a “Non-GAAP” basis (un-taxed). The stock has traded as high as $4.44 and as low as $2.91 over the last year.
We think our valuation (and the stock price) will go higher due to:
1) Recent acquisitions that made the CEO claim in their Q2 press release that “Q3 revenue run-rate will be over $7.5 million”
2) A recent partnership with J&B Software that has resulted in 3 new deals worth over $300,000 each (announced 9/24)
3) Purchased a 51% interest in “AsiaSoft” to get into the fast growing China and Asian markets.
With $.78 a share in “net” cash (24% of the market cap), and 60% margins, making money and several publicly announced catalysts that we believe not been reflected in the stock price, we think this is a good bet.
The daily trading volume is only 16,000 shares, but this stock can be accumulated.
We think anything under $3.35 is a good price.
