Is Sabien Technology Group Plc (LON:SNT) Potentially Underrated?

Simply Wall St

As an investor, I look for investments which does not compromise one fundamental factor for another. By this I mean, I look at stocks holistically, from their financial health to their future outlook. In the case of Sabien Technology Group Plc (LON:SNT), it is a company that has been able to sustain great financial health, trading at an attractive share price. Below is a brief commentary on these key aspects. If you're interested in understanding beyond my broad commentary, take a look at the report on Sabien Technology Group here.

Flawless balance sheet and undervalued

SNT's strong financial health means that all of its upcoming liability payments are able to be met by its current cash and short-term investment holdings. This indicates that SNT has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. Looking at SNT's capital structure, the company has no debt on its balance sheet. This means it is running its business only on equity capital funding, which is typically normal for a small-cap company. SNT has plenty of financial flexibility, without debt obligations to meet in the short term, as well as the headroom to raise debt should it need to in the future. SNT's shares are now trading at a price below its true value based on its discounted cash flows, indicating a relatively pessimistic market sentiment. This mispricing gives investors the opportunity to buy into the stock at a cheap price compared to the value they will be receiving, should analysts' consensus forecast growth be correct. Compared to the rest of the tech industry, SNT is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that SNT's price is currently discounted.
