- Rise in transaction volume, product enhancements and asset acquisition show Net Element’s ongoing growth strategy
- SeeThruEquity labels Net Element an ‘intriguing’ high-risk, high-reward growth company with stable share price target
- Since 2014, Net Element’s revenues from payment processing services have nearly tripled
A series of optimistic developments for payment tech processor Net Element, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETE) has led independent equity research firm SeeThruEquity to issue an update of its coverage on the company (http://ccw.fm/BQW1p). The research firm is taking note of Net Element’s forecast for an increase in gross profits based on its acquisition of services assets from partner Universal Payment Systems (“UPS”), an approximately 40 percent increase in its trading volume and number of transactions, and its addition of a smart security function in its business-to-business vendor payment platform Netevia (www.Netevia.com).
“NETE’s announcements suggest the company continued to identify growth initiatives, as evidenced by growth in transaction volume, new product enhancements, and the UPS deal announcement,” SeeThruEquity wrote (http://ccw.fm/o4gGf), labeling the company an “intriguing” high-risk, high-reward growth company in the financial technology space.
Net Element is a company that serves small to medium enterprises through its innovative productivity-generating platforms. Its expertise in generating multi-payment channel possibilities to consumers extends to mobile technology, linking brick and mortar business, as well as unbanked, web-based businesses, to their customers. The company also provides transaction analysis capability to help businesses optimize their revenue streams.
The transaction growth reports cited by SeeThruEquity show that, during the first half of 2018, Net Element outperformed its first-half 2017 results, processing $1.62 billion in transactions over the previous $1.18 billion transaction mark. The number of transactions processed by the Netevia platform grew from 35.7 million to 50.2 million, a sign that the platform is increasingly being adopted for completing financial transactions. Since SeeThruEquity began coverage on Net Element in 2014, its annual revenues have increased from $21.2 million to $60.1 million.
The $2.7 million UPS deal is expected to generate $5 million in gross profits alone over the next four years, with ongoing profit contribution thereafter. UPS is a California-based provider of bankcard payment processing services and value adds, and the deal transfers a suite of solutions to Net Element.
SeeThruEquity continues to hold to a share price target of $25 for the company. During the past year, shares have fluctuated between $2.60 and $33.51, but the $25 mark would generate a value of 1.3 times the estimated revenues of $72.1 million this year, the agency states.
