The board clearout at Vortiv is complete with the Simon Vertullo and Jason Titman from the Trojan Fund succeeding in today's shareholders meeting to be appointed as directors.
Howard Digby resigned as a Director.
Nicholas Smedley was recently appointed chairman.
The equal access capital return was approved today, so this company will be a shell with a 25% investment still remaining in the Indian ATM business.
Bell Potter released an updated broker research report on ERD on 14 April 2021 and increased their 12 month price target from $4.87 to $5.62.
If you read the report though, the new Australian contract resulted "in very minor revisions to our EPS estimate (<0.1%). We roll forward our DCF, reflecting the end of FY21e (March YE), increasing our Price Target to A$5.62ps".
The change in target price from $5.62 to $4.87 is $0.75, a +15.4% increase.
I highly doubt the value derived from these estimated DCF calculations in a company that is still cash flow negative and with the Bell Potter analyst estimates of -$9.1m free cash flow (FCF) in FY22 to +$49.4m FCF in FY31. That is a huge assumption.
