QIS Capital: We’ve received mainly positive comments regarding Q1 numbers. It’s important that investors not lose sight over what a tremendous year 2013 was for NTG Clarity, particularly when comparing year over year. The first quarter continued this growth with a 97% increase in revenues. While net earnings were basically flat, NTG Clarity showed a significant improvement in pre-tax earnings which is important since the company will be at least partially taxable this year. The management discussion and analysis explains all of the expenses and notable details very well and should be read for a full understanding of the Q1 results. Overall Q1 has historically been the slowest quarter of the year for both revenues and profitability. The company still has a large backlog of work for Q2 and Q3 and continues to work on new contracts. Trailing earnings continues to be $0.06 eps so NTG Clarity is trading at just a 5X multiple. When positive working capital of $0.13 per share (and no debt) is considered, the company’s shares are trading at a multiple of 3.3X.
Global Maxfin Securities came out with an updated report on NTG Clarity yesterday as well. Global stated that Q1 results were in line with expectations and maintained its $1 target price. If any investors would like a copy of the updated report, please let us know.
