GBC Research FactSheet – The NAGA Group AG

High growth momentum achieved in 2020; guidance for 2021 clearly above our expectations; price target raised to €7.03 (previously: €4.30); BUY rating

  • As expected, the preliminary figures of The NAGA Group AG (NAGA for short) for the past financial year 2020 were characterised by very high growth dynamic. Revenues of €25.9 million (PY: €6.22 million) were significantly above the previous year’s figure and slightly above our revenue estimate last published in December 2020 (GBC forecast: €24.9 million).
  • In addition to the generally favourable market environment characterised by high volatility and thus high transaction activity, the implemented focusing and restructur- ing of NAGA has borne fruit. In 2019, the focus on the core business of online bro- kerage was implemented and the corresponding marketing activities for the main product Naga Trader were strengthened. The trading volume improved significantly to €120 billion (previous year: €44 billion) and the number of transactions to 6.3 mil- lion (previous year: 2.9 million). Despite the increased marketing activities, NAGA was able to achieve a respectable EBITDA margin of over 23% with an EBITDA of around €6.0 million (previous year: €-12.18 million). The preliminary EBITDA is just below our previous forecasts (GBC forecast: € 6.49 million).
  • By contrast, the new NAGA guidance for the current financial year 2021 is significant- ly above our expectations. The continued global marketing of Naga Trader and even more intensive sales and marketing activities are expected to generate revenues in a range of € 50 – 52 million in the current financial year. It is also planned to push ahead with global expansion with the planned market entry in Australia and South America. In addition, the further improvement of the platform quality and customer support should keep the customer churn rate low. Despite these measures, scaling effects should lead to a further improvement in profitability. According to the new guidance, EBITDA is expected to be in a range of € 13 – 15 million.
  • Our forecasts published in the last research study (see study dated 07.12.2020) are noticeably below the updated company guidance. We are raising our revenue fore- cast to € 51.00 million (previously: € 37.34 million) and our EBITDA estimate to € 14.37 million (previously: € 11.43 million) in each case. As a result of the higher basis, we now assume revenues of € 61.20 million (previously: € 43.87 million) and EBITDA of € 17.84 million (previously: € 14.16 million) for 2022.
  • As a result of the adjusted DCF valuation model, the target price has been increased significantly to € 7.03 (previously: € 4.30). Despite the significant increase in the NA-
    GA share price, which has increased more than six-fold in the calendar year 2020, there is still a high share price potential. Based on the current price level of € 4.12 per share, we therefore continue to assign a BUY rating.

Valuation

Model assumptions

The NAGA Group AG was valued by us using a three-stage DCF model. Starting with the concrete estimates for the years 2020 – 2022 in phase 1, the second phase covers the period from 2023 to 2027 and includes a forecast of the value drivers. We expect sales to increase by 17.5%. We have assumed an EBITDA margin target of 29.2%. We have only included a tax rate of 30.0% from phase 3 onwards because of the loss carry forwards that still exist. In the third phase, a residual value will be determined after the end of the forecast horizon by means of the perpetual annuity. We assume a growth rate of 3.0% in the terminal value.

Determining the cost of capital

The weighted average cost of capital (WACC) of The NAGA Group AG is calculated from the cost of equity and the cost of debt. To determine the cost of equity, the fair market premium, the company-specific beta and the risk-free interest rate must be determined.

The risk-free interest rate is derived from current yield curves for risk-free bonds in accordance with the recommendations of the IDW’s Technical Committee for Company Valuations and Business Administration (FAUB). It is based on the zero bond interest rates published by the Deutsche Bundesbank using the Svensson method. To smooth short-term market fluctuations, the average yields of the previous three months are used and the result rounded to 0.25 basis points. The current value of the risk-freeinterest

rate used is 0.25% (previously: 1.00%).

We use the historical market premium of 5.50 % as a reasonable expectation of a market premium. This is supported by historical analyses of stock market returns. The market premium reflects the percentage by which the equity market is expected to outperform low-risk government bonds.

According to the GBC estimation method, the current beta is 1.65 (previously: 1.65). Using the assumptions made, the cost of equity is calculated at 9.33% (previously: 10.08%) (beta multiplied by risk premium plus risk-free interest rate). Since we assume a sustainable weighting of 100% of the cost of equity, the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) is 9.33% (previously: 10.08%).

Evaluation result

The significant forecast adjustment for the financial years 2021 and 2022 and thus the higher basis for the steady-state phase of our DCF valuation model have resulted in a significant increase in the price target to €7.03 (previously: €4.30).
