Updated financial targets to be presented
Since Sonny Mirborn became CEO in 2019 Alcadon has expanded its geographical exposure through strategic acquisitions, from solely Sweden and Norway to including Denmark, Germany, Benelux and the UK. The newly-added markets are characterised by a low fibre penetration, high growth, and extensive fibre roll-out ambitions (see our research from 10 August 2022, 7 December 2021 and 14 January 2021 for introductions to the UK, Benelux and Danish/German markets, respectively). Given the improved organic growth prospects, combined with a continued acquisition agenda (Mr. Mirborn stated in the Q2 report that Alcadon has identified additional companies that would further enhance the group’s competitive ability), we consider an update of the financial targets reasonable. We expect new targets of annual EBITA growth of 15-20% (10% org + 5-10% M&A) and ND/EBITDA of 2.5x-3.0x. See more on p. 3.
Trading at 12x ’23 EV/EBITA
The share trades at 12x ’23e EV/EBIT and we expect a ’21-’24e EBITA CAGR of 34%.
