Kaleyra, Inc.: Buffeted By Global Headwinds
Summary Today, we put Kaleyra, Inc. in the spotlight for the first time here on The Busted IPO Forum. The stock of this Communications Platform as a Service vendor has dropped sharply recently on reduced guidance and global headwinds. Are the shares of this 'Busted IPO' now in bargain territory? An investment analysis follows in the paragraphs below. I'm not anti-social. I'm just not social."― Woody Allen We take our first look at Kaleyra, Inc. (KLR) in today's feature article. The company came public in June of 2020 at $4.50 a share. The shares quickly quadrupled but have been in a downward spiral ever since and are now firmly in Busted IPO territory. So, Is KLR a falling knife or now in oversold status? An analysis follows below. Seeking Alpha Company Overview: Kaleyra, Inc. is based in Milan, Italy. The company's platform and Application Programming Interface (APIs) help manage multi-channel integrated communication services globally consisting of messaging, push notifications, e-mail, voice services, video capabilities, and chatbots. Kaleyra's clients include financial institutions, e-commerce players, software companies, logistic enablers, healthcare providers, retailers as well as customers in other industries. Basically the company's platform enables businesses to connect with their customers via different methods (emails, texts, voice, video, WhatsApp, etc..). June Company Presentation Currently the stock trades just below $1.50 a share and sports an approximate market capitalization of $65 million. June Company Presentation Second Quarter Results: On August 8th, the company posted second quarter numbers. Kaleyra broke even on a Non-GAAP basis, 16 cents a share below the consensus. Revenues rose 50% on a year-over-year basis to just over $81 million, roughly in line with expectations. Kaleyra had a dollar-based net expansion rate of 103% during the quarter. The company delivered 13.4 billion billable messages and connected 1.8 billion voice calls during the quarter. This represents 58% and 32 growth over 2Q2021, respectively. Management then ratcheted down forward guidance for both the third quarter and for FY2022, which the company said was due to the following on its earnings press release: A slowing global economy with contraction in the United States and major European economies, increased caution from enterprise executives weighing new initiatives, and consumers who are facing food and energy costs that consume more disposable income than before. When combined with pressure from a strengthening U.S. dollar and industry-wide demand and pricing considerations, we believe that it is prudent to revise our revenue for the third quarter and full year to reflect the current global economic and geopolitical environment." The new guidance is as follows: Third Quarter 2022: Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $83 - $87 million, compared to $84.0 million in the comparable year-ago period. Full Year 2022: Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $345 - $350 million, compared to $267.7 million in the comparable year-ago period.

($10 price target) have reissued Buy/Outperform ratings while Craig-Hallum ($2.75 price target) have maintained their Hold rating on KLR.
