Value

 Is Fortress Technologies undervalued based on future cash flows and its price relative to the stock market?

Value is all about what a company is worth versus what price it is available for. If you went into a grocery store and all the bananas were on sale at half price, they could be considered undervalued.
INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
  • It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for Fortress Technologies. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is CA$0.15.
PRICE RELATIVE TO MARKET
We can also value a company based on what the stock market is willing to pay for it. This is similar to the price of fruit (e.g. Mangoes or Avocados) increasing when they are out of season, or how much your home is worth.

The amount the stock market is willing to pay for Fortress Technologies's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

Future Performance

 How is Fortress Technologies expected to perform in the next 1 to 3 years based on estimates from 0 analysts?

In this section we usually present revenue and earnings growth projections based on the consensus estimates of professional analysts to help investors understand the company’s ability to generate profit. But as Fortress Technologies has not provided enough past data and has no analyst forecast, its future earnings cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst predictions.

This is quite a rare situation as 97% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have past financial data. You can see them here.

Show me the analysis anyway

The future performance of a company is measured in the same way as past performance, by looking at estimated growth and how much profit it is expected to make.

Future estimates come from professional analysts. Just like forecasting the weather, they don’t always get it right!

Performance in 3 years
In the same way as past performance we look at the future estimated return (profit) compared to the available funds. We do this looking forward 3 years.
  • Unable to establish if Fortress Technologies will efficiently use shareholders’ funds in the future without estimates of Return on Equity.

Next steps:

  1. Examine Fortress Technologies's financial health to determine how well-positioned it is against times of financial stress by looking at its level of debt over time and how much cash it has left.
  2. Fortress Technologies's future outlook can be gauged by looking at industry trends and market size, and determining how well-positioned the company is compared to its competitors. Take a look at other high-growth Software companies here
  3. Fortress Technologies's competitive advantages and company strategy can generally be found in its financial reports archived here.

Future performance checks
We assess Fortress Technologies's future performance by looking at:
  1. Is the annual earnings growth rate expected to beat the low risk savings rate, plus a premium to keep pace with inflation?
  2. Is the annual earnings growth rate expected to beat the average growth rate in earnings of the Canada market? (1 check)
  3. Is the annual revenue growth rate expected to beat the average growth rate in revenue of the Canada market? (1 check)
  4. Is the annual earnings growth rate expected to be above 20%? (1 check)
  5. Is the annual revenue growth rate expected to be above 20%? (1 check)
  6. Is the Return on Equity in 3 years expected to be over 20%? (1 check)
Some of the above checks will fail if the company is expected to be loss making in the relevant year.
Fortress Technologies has a total score of 0/6, see the detailed checks below.

Note 1: We use GAAP Net Income Excluding Exceptional Items for our Earnings in all our calculations.

Past Performance

  How has Fortress Technologies performed over the past 5 years?

The past performance of a company can be measured by how much growth it has experienced and how much profit it makes relative to the funds and assets it has available.
Past earnings growth
Below we compare Fortress Technologies's growth in the last year to its industry (Software).
Past Earnings growth analysis
We also check if the company has grown in the past 5 years, and whether it has maintained that growth in the year.
  • Fortress Technologies does not make a profit and there is insufficient past data to establish if their 5 year on year earnings growth rate was positive.
  • Unable to compare Fortress Technologies's 1-year earnings growth to the 5-year average as it is not currently profitable.
  • Unable to compare Fortress Technologies's 1-year growth to the CA Software industry average as it is not currently profitable.
Earnings and Revenue History
Fortress Technologies's revenue and profit over the past 5 years is shown below, any years where they have experienced a loss will show up in red.

*GAAP earnings excluding extraordinary items.

Performance last year
We want to ensure a company is making the most of what it has available. This is done by comparing the return (profit) to a company's available funds, assets and capital.
  • It is difficult to establish if Fortress Technologies has efficiently used shareholders’ funds last year (Return on Equity greater than 20%) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Fortress Technologies has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the CA Software industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Fortress Technologies improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

Past performance checks
We assess Fortress Technologies's performance over the past 5 years by checking for:
  1. Has earnings increased in past 5 years? (1 check)
  2. Has the earnings growth in the last year exceeded that of the Software industry? (1 check)
  3. Is the recent earnings growth over the last year higher than the average annual growth over the past 5 years? (1 check)

  5. Is the Return on Assets (ROA) above industry average? (1 check)
  6. Has the Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) increased from 3 years ago? (1 check)
The above checks will fail if the company has reported a loss in the most recent earnings report. Some checks require at least 3 or 5 years worth of data.
Fortress Technologies has a total score of 0/6, see the detailed checks below.

Note: We use GAAP Net Income excluding extraordinary items in all our calculations.

Health

 How is Fortress Technologies's financial health and their level of debt?

A company's financial position is much like your own financial position, it includes everything you own (assets) and owe (liabilities).

The boxes below represent the relative size of what makes up Fortress Technologies's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Fortress Technologies is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Fortress Technologies has no long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Fortress Technologies's finances. If any of them are yellow this indicates they may be out of proportion and red means they relate to one of the checks below.
Assets
Liabilities and shares
The 'shares' portion represents any funds contributed by the owners (shareholders) and any profits.
  • Low level of unsold assets.
  • Fortress Technologies has no debt, it does not need to be covered by short term assets.
Historical Debt
Nearly all companies have debt. Debt in itself isn’t bad, however if the debt is too high, or the company can’t afford to pay the interest on its debts this may have impacts in the future.

The graphic below shows equity (available funds) and debt, we ideally want to see the red area (debt) decreasing.

If there is any debt we look at the companies capability to repay it, and whether the level has increased over the past 5 years.
Raw Data

All data from Fortress Technologies Company Filings, last reported 4 months ago.

TSXV:FORT Past Debt and Equity Data

2018-12-31 11.51 0.00 10.56
2017-12-31 -0.04 0.03 4.71
  • Fortress Technologies has no debt.
  • Fortress Technologies currently has no debt however we can't compare to 5 years ago as we have no data for that period.
CASH RUNWAY ANALYSIS

For companies that have on average been loss making in the past we assess whether they have at least 1 year of cash runway.

  • Fortress Technologies has sufficient cash runway for 1.2 years based on current free cash flow.
  • Fortress Technologies has sufficient cash runway for 1.1 years if free cash flow continues to grow at historical rates of 200.1% each year.
