Takeover offer for RDM Corporation yields a total return of 708%
Posted by: Gerry Wimmer

TOP IDEAS: For Investorfile followers, RDM Corporation (TSX: RC) would be the 6th takeover for small cap value stock picks, with more to come.

Investorfile's share price accumulation target of $1.35 for RDM Corporation was reached on November 22, 2012. For the record, we do not revise share price targets for our Investorfile Top Ideas – Small Cap Value Stocks. We have positioned our blog to be one of the first providers of a pragmatic perspective of a small cap company’s stock's potential worth, where there may be uncovered value that has been largely overlooked by the investment community.

It was on January 29th of this year in our blog post about the takeover of IWG Technologies (an Investorfile stock pick), that we reiterated: "Any one of the small cap value stocks on our Top Ideas list could be subject to a takeover bid.” (See: Another takeover for an Investorfile stock pick.)

Fifteen days later we were true to our word.

On the morning of February 13th, it was announced that RDM Corporation (TSX: RC - C$5.42) had entered into a definitive agreement under which a subsidiary of NYSE-listed Deluxe Corporation is to acquire all of RDM’s issued and outstanding common shares. Shareholders of RDM Corporation will receive cash consideration of C$5.45 per share. The proposed takeover is subject to approval at a special meeting of RDM’s shareholders, expected to be held on March 27, 2017.

RDM Corporation provides payment processing services based on Remote Deposit Capture ("RDC”), a deposit-taking mechanism that uses technology to capture cheque images and data at corporate or merchant sites for the electronic transmission of these deposits to a financial institution. US Financials have steadily increased the deployment of RDC technology and, in particular, RDM’s Image and Transaction Management Systems ("ITMS®”) software to enable the elimination of many costly cheque processing steps while, at the same time, opening the door for new and improved service offerings to its commercial customers.

The Investorfile blog was one of the very first documented opinion providers on the merits of investing in the shares of RDM Corporation following its turnaround. Prior to this post, we have shared 11 investment updates about the Company over a five-year period. For Investorfile followers who invested early on by purchasing shares of RDM Corporation, the pending takeover looks to be a very rewarding financial outcome.

Since we first introduced this stock as a small cap value investment opportunity at a price of C$0.88 (See: RDM Corporation: Cash-rich small cap turnaround, offers value and opportunity), Deluxe Corp’s proposal to acquire RDM Corporation at C$5.45 values this stock at 519% higher. If you include the dividends paid to RDM shareholders during our coverage period, the total investment return rises to 708%.

Takeovers are never factored in for Investorfile’s Top Ideas or share price targets. That said we do believe a takeover will become an eventuality for many of Investorfile’s stock picks. Six of 18 Top Ideas profiled in the Investorfile blog, including RDM, have been subject to takeover or a privatization shareholder value-enhancing event to date. This has generated substantial investment gains and, just as important, instant liquidity for our small cap value stock ideas.

The Investorfile blog cannot predict with any certainty which will be the "next” small cap value stock on our Top Ideas list to be subject to a takeover offer, but we are almost certain there will be a "next” one. So, stay tuned and invested!

RDM Corporation has approximately 22.6 million shares outstanding.
