NEW YORK, June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ludlow Capital, an equity research firm based in New York City, upgrades its research opinion on Perla Group International Inc. (Pink: PERL), a leader in the international military, police and security solutions sectors, with a price target of $0.10 to $0.15 per share.
- 2011 Revenues of $3.1 million, Profitable
- - $11.25 Million Purchase Orders
- Military Contracts
- Shares Reduced by 55%
- Tight Public Float
2011 Earnings, Profitable
The Company is an operational and global provider of security and military equipment and solutions. For the year ending Dec. 31, 2011, the company reported total revenues of $3,126,708, and net income profit of $361,373. For the ending period, the company reported it was cash-flow positive at the end of the fiscal year.
So far, for 2012, the Company has already reported $11.25 million in purchase orders, which is more than triple all of 2011 total revenues.
On a rough basis, PERL generates around 20% of their total revenues into net income profit to their bottom line, give or take. The shortfall in Q4 2011 was due to a one-time charge for equipment, and misc, but on a whole they generate net income of a 20% to 30% basis.
Thus, if the Company has already generated around $11.25 million in new purchase orders, that would equate to around $1.4 million in potential net income profit. With only around 224 million shares issued and outstanding, that would come out to roughly a $0.006 EPS for the company currently, on a general estimate.
If you give PERL a PE of say 10 to 15, which is still considered conservative for a fast growing small cap company, that would come out to a current valuation of around $0.06 to $0.09 per share, as of right now.
2012 Revenue and EPS Projection
With a potential merger for their aviation division projected to bring in an additional $6 million in sales revenue, and additional contracts coming in for the rest of the year, the company could be on track to report total revenues for fiscal 2012 in the range of $15 million, and this being very conservative.
If we use the same formula as we have for projecting its current valuation, then 20% of $15 million comes out to potential $3 million in net income profit. If we based this on say 300 million outstanding to take into account any future dilution in 2012, we come out with a rough EPS projection of around $0.01 per share. On a conservative PE of 10 to 15, that would give PERL an estimated target for 2012 in the range of $0.10 to $0.15 per share.
Given these new contracts, and basic fundamentals, Ludlow Research has issued a current short-term price target on PERL of $0.05 to $0.06 per share, with a longer-term target of $0.10 to $0.15 per share for the coming months.
PERL is currently trading at $0.02 per share
The company is targeting to be OTC Current within the next week. New contracts/revenue updates will be released shortly.
