After the latest results, the two analysts covering M.T.I Wireless Edge are now predicting revenues of US$48.9m in 2023. If met, this would reflect a reasonable 5.8% improvement in sales compared to the last 12 months. Statutory per share are forecast to be US$0.043, approximately in line with the last 12 months. In the lead-up to this report, the analysts had been modelling revenues of US$48.9m and earnings per share (EPS) of US$0.043 in 2023. The consensus analysts don't seem to have seen anything in these results that would have changed their view on the business, given there's been no major change to their estimates.
There were no changes to revenue or earnings estimates or the price target of UK£0.89, suggesting that the company has met expectations in its recent result.
Another way we can view these estimates is in the context of the bigger picture, such as how the forecasts stack up against past performance, and whether forecasts are more or less bullish relative to other companies in the industry. The period to the end of 2023 brings more of the same, according to the analysts, with revenue forecast to display 5.8% growth on an annualised basis. That is in line with its 5.4% annual growth over the past five years. Compare this with the broader industry, which analyst estimates (in aggregate) suggest will see revenues grow 2.3% annually. So although M.T.I Wireless Edge is expected to maintain its revenue growth rate, it's definitely expected to grow faster than the wider industry.
The Bottom Line
The most obvious conclusion is that there's been no major change in the business' prospects in recent times, with the analysts holding their earnings forecasts steady, in line with previous estimates. Happily, there were no major changes to revenue forecasts, with the business still expected to grow faster than the wider industry. The consensus price target held steady at UK£0.89, with the latest estimates not enough to have an impact on their price targets.
