Investment summary

Over the last two years PNTR has won significant contracts in driver behaviour systems (DBS), connected car (CC) and sensor-based IoT monitoring systems. The group also recently agreed to work with Microsoft Israel to develop AI-enriched driver assessment tools. Cross-selling potential, prospects in new markets and geographies and high operating leverage gives PNTR strong earnings growth prospects. We believe that significant value has emerged in the shares following a c 38% share price decline since January peaks. Valuing the group at EV/EBITDA parity with the telematics sector (at 17 July 2018) gives rise to a multiple valuation of $20.0/NIS71.9 per share which is supported by our $18.1/NIS64.6 DCF valuation.

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.
