31/10/2021 - Downgrading my valuation due to cashflow management and poor governance with exec renumeration. See my straw. I will re-visit this once things change.

Great solution, landing great logos, very healthy yearly growth averaging in the 25%, putting in target of EV/ARR of 6 given industry compares.

Last edited one year ago

Turning into a classic frustrating negative cashflow situation. 

Things may change, but as it stands Skifii is becoming a great case study of poor leadership with capital allocation. 

What made me hesitate the most before investing into this company was this strange behaviour I should certainly have questioned more heavily when I saw that Directors & Management granted with their yearly 1c options. There’s a lot of questionable stock renumeration in small caps but I hadn’t seen one quite like this before. I should have just treated this as unacceptable, seen the lack of incentive for leadership to drive better cash management and walked away. Instead I rationalised the software was great and and overlooked this. I've learned from that mistake.

Now the merry-go round continues; every quarter they continue growing their ARR but seem less promotional about outpacing that growth with new record cash outflows. $2.9M in the last quarter. They present in section 8 this means 2.7 quarters of funding still available, but they likely will not draw debt at this point, and in any case they won’t last to the end of the financial year.

When they find themselves faced with asking Shareholders that supported them in their last capital raising at 16.5c only six months ago for more money that might be the breaking point.

Skyfii Q4 FY2021 Quarterly Presentation Recording


SKifii continues to deliver and grow at an aggressive Saas pace of 40% yearly on ARR. In their presentation, they note ending the year at $14M ARR (unaudited). The important thing to note is that the acquisition of Crowdvision is what makes the figures look particularly rosy.

Listening to the recording of the call, the important question came up at the end: “Removing the Crowdvision acquisition, what’s Skyfii’s QoQ growth?”

The answer from the CEO and CFO was that they decided to take the hit on churn in Q4 and deal with the credit notes. If you take that out, the Skyfii core business was marginally down. That’s why questions are so key from investors.

I was pleased to hear the truth as always, and to me the reality stands that the compare against the past quarter was also a tough one given they have a fairly massive Q3.


On Valuation

With an Enterprise value of 42.37M, that puts them EV/ARR of 3. For a business growing at this pace, in my opinion, we’ve got a very reasonable valuation. See my valuation and price target against the company.

Their EBITDA is down from last year given their acquisition of CrowdVision.

On Execution & The road to profitability

Their execution in the past 1-2 years tells me they will continue to focus on aggressive YoY growth, which leaves us in limbo as to when to expect profitability. The CEO indirectly addressed this by saying (my best effort to quote him, this isn’t entirely accurate) :

FY22 is a year of investment. They have invested in recruiting for 19 new roles. Most in seat before 1st half of FY22, mainly across sales and marketing.

Analyst guidance says they will impact their EBITDA. Are looking for growth. Are looking for 17-20M ARR.

FY23 is the year where they will demonstrate operation leverage.

Essentially, we’re not unlikely to see profitability next year as they continue to invest in growing the business. With a great product and great opportunity to move further to market leader, my view is that this is the right decision.

In Summary

  • I’ve seen good execution from them this last year in a difficult COVID period.
  • I’m pleased with the CARG growth we’ve seen from them.
  • The management team are focused on the right things and delivering.

18-Sep-2020:  Canaccord Genuity: Estimates Revised: Skyfii Limited: Tuck-in acquisition of Blix ($1m ARR), and return to pre-COVID growth (>+10% qoq revg)


  • Owen Humphries | Analyst | Canaccord Genuity (Australia) Ltd. | | +61.2.9263.2702
  • Seth Hoskin | Analyst | Canaccord Genuity (Australia) Ltd. | | +61 3 8688 9146

Rating: BUY (unchanged), Price Target: A$0.30 (unchanged), Share Price: A$0.20

Tuck-in acquisition of Blix ($1m ARR), and return to pre-COVID growth (>+10% qoq revg)

  • SKF announced the acquisition of Blix, an Australia-based venue analytics business that specialises in servicing SMB-format retail venues (primarily auto dealerships). Blix has ~50 customers, including Porsche, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Toyota, Country Road, Swarovski, and Watches of Switzerland. SKF expects Blix to report a post-covid annual recurring revenue (ARR) of ~$1.1m and EBITDA to be positive in 12 months, representing an all-in acquisition cost of ~1x ARR ($0.3m upfront, $0.7m deferred [cash or scrip]). While highly accretive at face value, SKF is expecting to crosssell various parts of Blix’s CountSmart technology to its existing global customer footprint.
  • As with all enterprise sales, SKF’s sales momentum slowed in 4Q20a with its key customer segments (shopping malls, airports, stadiums and QSR’s) materially impacted by covid lockdowns. However, the company is expecting to return to its previous growth trajectory (pre-COVID 16x quarters of sequential +10% qoq organic growth) and recently noted its sales pipeline has returned to pre-covid levels (Mar-20 qualified/advanced pipeline $19.3m). We expect this growth to be complemented by further strategic bolt-on acquisitions, with SKF retaining an active global M&A pipeline.
  • The company released OccupancyNow, which enables customers to leverage SKF’s technology to manage covid/re-opening. It is an automated occupancy and social distancing management tool and has already secured a major North American grocery chain as its first customer (>2000 potential venues).
  • SKF's outlook remains positive and it is expecting to deliver “significant double-digit [organic] growth and a positive operating EBITDA result” with “FY21 starting with significant momentum”. SKF exited 4Q20a ARR with >$10m, which is derived from customers (>900x paying customers, >10k venues, >40k devices) subscribing to SKF's IO platform, which currently incorporates information from over 25 data sources (WiFi, people counters, thermal imagery, infrared, POS, etc.) to provide information on visitor information, sales conversion, staff optimization, customer flow and weather impacts on sales.
  • In our view, SKF generates software-like margins and, as such, we believe the stock should be compared to its domestic software peers. On a 3.8x EV/FY21e revenue multiple, the stock remains an outlier, as cloud technology/growth stocks multiples continue to expand globally (US SaaS peers, 11x FY21e EV/rev, +18% revg [CapitalIQ]). Aproaching and passing the critical $20m ARR milestone (FY22), coupled with potentially further accretive bolt-on acquisition in FY21, should see a continued multiple rerating in our view. BUY rating and $0.30ps target price reiterated.
