Sommer raised his price target on Ibex Holdings Ltd. by 22.7% following the release of the company's Q1 2023 earnings report on 2022/11/15.

The company returned positive Q1 results while management reaffirmed prior guidance amid continued choppy results from outsourcing competitors, the analyst reported.

Looking beyond the Q1's "solid" results, an even bigger story for the stock was last week's Bloomberg report* indicating financial sponsors are interested in taking the company private, Sommer stated.

* From here: CVC Capital Partners has been speaking to banks about financing for a potential bid, deliberations are ongoing, and there’s no certainty they will result in a formal offer.

For Q1 2023, Ibex reported:

  • EPS of $0.34, which beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $0.29 and, by 580%, Q1 2022's $0.05.
  • Revenue of $127.88M, which beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $125.78M and, by 17.79%, Q1 2022's $108.57M.
  • Net cash flow from operations of $8.8M.
  • Revenue from BPO 2.0 clients, those won since FY 2016, grew 44.3% and represented 76% of total revenue.

Management guided for FY 2023:

  • Organic revenue of $545M to $555M (11.4% growth Y/Y).
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $77M to $79M (14.2% margin).
  • Capex of $18M to $22M.

CEO Bob Dechant commented, “Q1 2023 delivered the company’s best start to a fiscal year on record, highlighted by revenue growth of 17.8% Y/Y, EBITDA margins of 14.3%, strong net income, EPS, and free cash flow.

“Ibex continues to execute, despite continued market volatility and global inflationary cost pressures. Our powerful new logo engine and ability to land and expand partnerships are driving client and vertical growth and diversification.

“Looking forward to the remainder of FY 2023, we are confident in the resiliency of our business, supported by the client diversification and strategic vertical expansions we’ve built over the preceding years.

"These efforts have our company well positioned in today’s market as we have less exposure to any one client or any one vertical

"As a result of our strong start to the year, we are reiterating our prior guidance and remain confident in our brand and ability to continue to win business."

Daniel Perlin, a bottom 3% analyst from RBC Capital maintains IBEX with a buy rating and raises their IBEX price target from $20.00 to $26.00, on Nov 16, 2022.
