Post-takeover, the return for a past Investorfile stock pick is still rising
Posted by: Gerry Wimmer

Up 96% in value, receiving stock in Lantronix is proving to be a big bonus for former shareholders of Intrinsyc Technologies.

In January of 2020, Lantronix Inc. finalized its takeover of Intrinsyc Technologies Corp., which was once a Top Idea for Investorfile when it was listed on the TSX (See: Intrinsyc Technologies: A high-tech turnaround play, for small cap value investors). Lantronix paid Instrinsyc shareholders US$0.55 cash per share and exchange 0.2135 of a share of the common stock of Lantronix for each issued and outstanding share of Intrinsyc Technologies.

As a result of this takeover, shareholders of Intrinsyc received the equivalent of about C$1.90 per share based on the date for the receipt of cash and Lantronix stock. On closing, this translated in to a return of about 153% since the date Investorfile first recommended Intrinsyc Technologies’ stock as a small cap value investment (it was then trading at C$0.75 per share).

While earning a 153% return on an investment is excellent, we thought there could be still more upside left on the table by continuing to hold the stock received in Lantronix. Investorfile documented that opinion in its blog post last year (See: The takeover of Intrinsyc Technologies may be the gift that keeps on giving). In hindsight, we were right. Since the takeover, the stock price of Lantronix is up significantly.

Our opinion on the further upside potential was based on the expected synergies from joining Intrinsyc and Lantronix together, by becoming part of a bigger company and the NASDAQ listing which attracts more US institutional investors so the stock can trade at a higher valuation level. Since Lantronix’s purchase of Intrinsyc, it has made several other acquisitions, too.

Today, Lantronix Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX – US$7.36) describes itself as A global provider of secure turnkey solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Remote Environment Management (REM), offering Software as a Service (SaaS), connectivity services, engineering services and intelligent hardware. Lantronix says it enables its customers to accelerate time to market and increase operational up-time and efficiency by providing reliable, secure and connected Intelligent Edge IoT and Remote Management Gateway solutions.

Because the Investorfile blog is focused on growth stocks listed on Canadian exchanges, we do not cover Lantronix today. That said we are still optimistic that there is still more upside potential by continuing to hold this stock for greater gains. We note, as of today, US research investment analysts have 12-month targets for Lantronix’s stock price as high as US$10 and US$11 per share.

Since the date of closing of the takeover of Intrinsyc Technologies, Lantronix’s stock price is up 96% in value.

For the former shareholders of Intrinsyc, who today now own shares in Lantronix, we can confirm now that "it is” the gift that keeps on giving!
