Investment summary

For Thinfilm (THIN), 2016 has been principally dominated by a steadily growing list of new client partnerships, preparations for the move to the new R2R plant and a successful $61.7m funding round. The restart of EAS orders in January adds to revenue security this year. THIN is also shortly to scale up go-to-market activities for the Smart ElastiTag solution with hang-tag specialist, Bedford Industries, including a joint marketing road-show. This is expected to accelerate new NFC product field trial numbers in 2017, helped also by the recent launch of THIN’s cloud-based software portal CNECT. Earnings for 2016 were affected by higher than expected stockpiling costs and one-off FX losses, with no material impact on our forecasts. Our DCF valuation remains $9.70 per ADR.

Industry outlook

Thinfilm is the global leader in printed electronics, which is a low cost and highly scalable method of creating smart labels for the Internet of Things. The company is currently focused on three areas: NFC labels, most notably NFC OpenSense, which is on pilot trial with a number of major brands; memory labels, which are in production; and sensor and display labels, where it has developed prototypes. The ability of printed electronics to add intelligence to low-cost, high-volume products opens a wide range of potential applications that could present an even greater market opportunity.
