Mid-cap bid target

28 March 2024

Western Europe has many industry-leading mid-cap companies that are hardly known among investors.

The company featured in this report:

  • Commands a 50% market share in its industry in Europe (= duopoly).
  • Has hardly any risk of decreasing demand for its products.
  • Is trading at just 6x EBITDA, or even less.
  • Has started to grow at a clip of 30-40% p.a. in a major overseas market.

Despite a market cap of >EUR 500m, few analysts or fund managers follow the stock.

Yet, they should.

The company's CEO and COO have been given a strong financial incentive to at least double the share price by mid-2026.

It looks likely that they will succeed.

Unrivaled value for retail investors in your reports. Gazprom actually helped me pay off one of my student loans which I've been struggling with for a while. Your work is changing lives.

This small-cap has 50-100% upside in case of a going-private bid, and at least just as much upside if no bid materialised. How is that possible?

The stock of leading British retailer Frasers Group should have investors chomping at the bits to buy a stake.
