Small caps with revenues growing quicker than expenses reward investors
Posted by: Gerry Wimmer

Revenue growth and EBITDA margin trends are good indicators to future profitability for Investorfile Top Ideas: Quorum Information Technologies (TSXV: QIS), Avante Logixx (TSXV: XX) & Sangoma Technologies (TSXV: STC).

One of Investorfile’s favourite predictors for a small cap company’s share price appreciation is a growing EBITDA margin. EBITDA margin is a measurement of a company’s operating profitability as a percentage of its total revenue. It is equal to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) divided by total revenue. When EDITDA margins are on the rise, it simply implies that a company’s revenues are growing at a faster rate than its expenses.

Because EBITDA margin is a measurement of a company's operating profitability as a percentage of its total revenue, we feel it provides small cap investors with a clearer view of a company's financial prospects. The higher the EBITDA margin, the smaller a company’s operating expenses in relation to total revenue, thus increasing its bottom line and leading to more cash-flow.

Generally speaking, when EBITDA margins grow to over 10% of revenues, there tends to be a more noticeable and positive impact on a small cap company’s earnings per share (assuming no addition stock dilution) which can lead to a significant increase in the company’s stock price.

For this blog post we took a survey of our Top Ideas to identify which companies have grown their revenues the fastest over the past 12 months in conjunction with strong and/or rising EBITDA margins. From this exercise we recognize the following three Investorfile small cap stocks:

  1. Quorum Information Technologies (TSXV: QIS – C$0.80)
    Trailing 12-month revenue (TTM) growth: 13%
    TTM EBITDA margins: 16%

  2. Avante Logixx (TSXV: XX - C$0.29)
    TTM revenue growth: 42%
    TTM EBITDA margins: 12%

  3. Sangoma Technologies (TSXV: STC – C$0.67)
    TTM revenue growth: 17%
    TTM EBITDA margins: 8% (Last quarter: 11.5%)

Based on positive revenue growth and EBITDA margin trends occurring at Quorum Information Technologies, Avante Logixx and Sangoma Technologies,we believe this a good indicator of future profit growth and stock price appreciation for these Investorfile stocks.
