Byrna Technologies: New Products Could Bring The Stock Price Up

Byrna is a defense technology company offering solutions for security situations that do not require the use of lethal force. Management is already present in well-known e-commerce shops, and it has connections with a significant number of physical stores. With so many people trying to sell Byrna’s products, future revenue growth may continue. Byrna Technologies Inc. (BYRN) recently announced that its research teams are working on new launchers. In my view, more products will likely enhance revenue generation. The company also received great financial forecasts from investment analysts, and the guidance is beneficial. There are some risks because BYRN's manufacturing activity is very recent, and many teams were recently created. With that, I believe that more M&A activity could send the stock price north. Byrna Byrna is a defense technology company offering solutions for security situations that do not require the use of lethal force. Byrna's customers include law enforcement and private security customers in addition to individuals, international dealers, and distributors. Considering the list of clients, I believe that the customer base is quite diversified. Presentation Byrna reported sales growth of 154% in 2021, and expects to report sales growth of 36% in 2022. With these figures, I believe that many investors would be interested in the company. Future sales growth is expected to be enhanced by new channels, new markets, and strategic acquisitions. I designed several financial models to understand how fast Byrna could grow. Presentation Future profitability ratios are also improving. Byrna expects to report a target gross profit of 60%-65% and adjusted EBITDA of 30%. I have not used these figures in my models because I believe that they are too optimistic. With that, I believe that investors should know about the Byrna's targets. Presentation With No Debt, New Acquisitions Seem Achievable As of May 31, 2022, Byrna reported $25 million in cash, $56 million in total assets, and $11 million in total liabilities. Considering the current balance sheet, in my view, Byrna could receive debt to acquire other targets. 10-Q Byrna did not report financial debt, so the net debt is actually negative. Accounts payables are the largest liability. Hence, it seems that some providers are financing Byrna's activity. 10-Q Presentation Expectations From Analysts Are Beneficial Analysts reported beneficial expectations about Byrna's revenue growth, EBITDA margin, and EBT. We are talking about double digit sales growth in 2022 and 2023, and 24%-12% EBITDA margin in 2023 and 2024. I usually don't disclose what other investment analysts report. However, the numbers are so remarkable that I made an exception in this article. Work From Other Analysts It is also quite beneficial that net income is expected to be positive from 2023, and free cash flow will likely trend positive in 2024. Work From Other Analysts E-commerce And New Products Could Enhance Revenue Generation I believe that the sales and marketing processes of Byrna will enhance sales growth. Management is already present in well-known e-commerce shops, and it has connections with a significant number of physical stores. With so many people trying to sell Byrna's products, future revenue growth may continue. We sell our products into the consumer market through our Byrna e-commerce store and a network of over 1,300 local, regional and national outdoor and sporting goods stores, either directly or through distributors. We also sell our products through an Amazon (AMZN) storefront. Source: 10-k Byrna is signing agreements with popular national news providers, and is working with key influencers. According to the annual report, campaigns in the media significantly increase the orders online. In my view, further campaigns will likely help management sell more. Finally, under this case scenario, I assumed that Byrna will have cash to finance more campaigns: Our current marketing strategy includes engaging key influencers in relevant markets to highlight the benefits of our security solutions to their respective networks of followers. Source: 10-k The company is working on new launchers, the Byrna LE and Byrna PE. With more efficient utilization of CO2 and other innovations, new products will likely bring further revenue growth. The company discussed these new products in a recent report: Our design team is comprised of experts in the fields of mechanical design, precision manufacturing and CO2-powered propulsion. We are currently focused on executing the commercial introduction of a series of new launchers, including the Byrna LE and Byrna PE. Source: 10-k The global guns and accessories market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6% from now until 2027. Under normal circumstances, I believe that Byrna will likely experience sales growth close to the market growth. The global guns and accessories market size was USD 6.14 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 9.33 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.15% during the forecast period. Source: Fortune Business Insights With sales growth around 6% from 2024 to 2026 and an EBITDA margin of 6%-24%, I obtained 2026 EBITDA of $16 million and 2026 non operating profit after tax of $9 million. My DCF Model In my CAPM model, I included a beta of 1.22, cost of equity of 10%, and cost of debt of 2.8%. My results include a discount of 7.7%. Also, with an exit multiple of 12x, which is close to the sector median, the implied price would be $9.4-$9.5 per share.
