Spectrum Global Solutions (OTC: SGSI), a leading provider of telecommunications engineering and infrastructure services for enterprise customers and Tier 1 carriers across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Caribbean, announced impressive third quarter results Tuesday, with revenue up more than 300% from the year ago period to $9.7 million and more than $400,000 net income, or $0.04 per share on a fully-diluted basis.
Why It Matters: SGSI currently trades for a market cap that is barely more than the net income it generated in the third quarter. Its revenues for the period are nearly 20 times its market cap. This should come as no surprise to investors who have been following the story, as the company has announced contract wins nearly every week, the majority worth more than $1 million each. With its track record for contract wins quite firm, it’s only a matter of time before SGSI reaches profitability on a trailing 12-month basis, at which point the stock will likely be trading for a more realistic and significantly higher valuation.
Key Quote: “We are experiencing consistent revenue growth from our AW Solutions and ADEX subsidiaries, that is much stronger than the prior year and expect to continue this growth pattern both organically and through strategic, accretive acquisitions.” – Roger Ponder, CEO
