Multi-screen video delivery (delivery of TV to tablets and smartphones) will be the biggest area of investment for pay-TV companies in 2013 and Concurrent (CCUR) will take advantage of this booming market! CCUR is breaking out big, it only has 8.72mm shares outstanding and is currently $6.94 with a market cap of $60.52mm, $24.6mm in cash and no debt. This gives CCUR an enterprise value of only $35.92mm, which is only 0.54X its annualized revenue of $66.4mm. CCUR's video business, which has captured the #1 largest video-on-demand (VOD) market share with a reach of 50 million households, is currently receiving no value at all!
Ericsson (ERIC) just announced they are paying Microsoft (MSFT) nearly $200mm to acquire their Mediaroom multi-screen IPTV software in order to increase their multi-screen reach by 11 million pay-TV households to 16 million for a 25% multi-screen market share. CCUR's MediaHawk multi-screen software is superior to Mediaroom and CCUR has already signed multi-screen deals with the #1 largest cable TV companies in Japan, Germany, and the UK. These three huge CCUR multi-screen clients have a total of 14.8 million subscribers, which will put CCUR second in this space behind ERIC.
CCUR spent $15mm just to acquire their Media Data Intelligence business, which tracks 35mm pay-TV subscribers and holds a 35% market share in the markets it serves. CCUR also has a "real-time" ultra high performance computer technology business with annualized revenue of $27.6mm and 4 of the world's top 5 defense manufacturers as clients. This business is probably worth $25-30mm on its own.
CCUR's multi-screen/VOD video business with $33.8mm in annualized revenue is currently being valued at less than zero! CCUR is extremely profitable with its EPS doubling the past two quarters in a row! Major consolidation is taking place in this space and CCUR could potentially become a takeover target!
