Offer for WANTED Technologies yields 478% gain for small cap value investors
Posted by: Gerry Wimmer

TOP IDEAS: Friendly takeover proposal for WANTED Technologies (TSXV: WAN) by NYSE-listed company unlocks shareholder value and provides instant liquidity.

Note: Investorfile's share price accumulation target of $0.55 for WANTED Technologies Corp. was reached on August 9, 2013. For the record, we do not revise share price targets for our Top Ideas - Small Cap Value Stocks. We have positioned our blog to be one of the first providers for a pragmatic perspective of a small cap company stock's potential worth, where there may be uncovered value that has been largely overlooked by the investment community.

It was just 56 days ago when we suggested in our blog post that any one of the small cap stocks on Investorfile's Top Ideas list – Small Cap Value could be subject to a takeover bid in the future (See: Takeovers become an eventuality for Investorfile’s Top Ideas.) The future is here for WANTED Technologies Corp. (TSXV: WAN - $1.76).

WANTED Technologies provides real-time business intelligence for the Human Capital (HC) marketplace. Corporate and government clients use WANTED Analytics to find sales leads, analyze employment trends, gather competitive intelligence, forecast economic conditions and source hard-to-fill positions. The Company provides its cloud-based information tools via subscriptions to its customers in North America and abroad, supporting its recurring revenue business model.

On the morning of September 11, it was announced that WANTED technologies had entered into a definitive agreement under which NYSE-listed CEB Inc. is to acquire all of WANTED Technologies' issued and outstanding common shares. Shareholders of WANTED Technologies will receive cash consideration of C$1.79 per share. The proposed takeover is subject to approval at a special meeting of WANTED Technologies shareholders expected to be held on or about October 29, 2015.

CEB is a best-practice insight and technology company which develops innovative solutions to drive corporate performance. CEB equips leaders at more than 10,000 companies with the intelligence to effectively manage talent, customers and operations.

At Investorfile we believe that investing in undervalued small cap companies that are fundamentally strong can be very rewarding. But, more often than not, a shareholder value–enhancing event like a takeover of such companies can generate significant premiums to the small cap’s stock price and, just as important, instant liquidity for such investments.

For the readers of the Investorfile blog who invested in the shares of WANTED Technologies, the pending takeover looks to be a very rewarding financial outcome. Since we first introduced the Company as a small cap value investment opportunity about 3-years ago at C$0.31 (See: WANTED Technologies: A small cap that is delivering sales growth, profits and yet is still value priced), today CEB’s proposal to acquire WANTED Technologies values this stock 478% higher at C$1.79.

To date, including WANTED Technologies, 4 of the 14 Top Ideas’ profiled in the Investorfile blog have been subject to takeover or a privatization shareholder value-enhancing event. Will there be more? In our opinion, 100% yes. Who on our Top Ideas list will be next? That will be the subject of a future Investorfile blog post.
