Investment summary

Pointer Telocation (PNTR) achieved a strong performance in both product and services revenues in the third quarter supported by 16% y-o-y organic subscriber growth and a boost to product margins from increased sales of higher-quality telematics units. PNTR looks set to derive substantial cost synergies in 2018 from the integration of Cielo Telecom’s operations in Brazil and we foresee the potential for the new CelloTrack Nano IoT tracker product to emerge as a major profit driver following strong recent interest in the market. We have increased our 2017 and 2018 EBITDA forecasts and reduced our fair discount to peer multiples, resulting in an increase in our peer multiple valuation from $15.4 to $19.3 (NIS 67.8) per share, and an 11% increase in our DCF valuation to $18.1 (NIS 63.6)per share.

Industry outlook

The global telematics market (services and products) is forecast to grow at an 18.9% CAGR between 2015 and 2020 according to Driscoll & Associates, reflecting the growing sophistication and integration of telematics devices into business frameworks and increasing legislation requiring the use of telematics. Less developed markets such as Latin America and Africa are forecast to achieve higher CAGRs of 15.6% and 17.3% respectively during this period.
