A leading remote cardiac monitoring player
09 Jan 17
LifeWatch specialises in ECG-based remote cardiac monitoring services and is one of the leading companies in this space in the US, with around four million patients monitored to date. The company had a solid FY15, with 8.3% adjusted revenue growth and its strongest EBITDA in six years. However, 2016 was turbulent, mainly as a result of costly but one-off legal settlements. Having streamlined its cost base and left the legacy issues behind it, LifeWatch is now well placed to capitalise on healthy market growth, returning to profitability in FY17; we value it at CHF258m ($250m).
Maintaining the rhythm
29 Jan 16
A strategic partnership with AliveCor and US (FDA 510k) and EU (CE mark) approvals for the mobile cardiac telemetry (MCT) patch kicks off an important year for LifeWatch. With a full turnaround of the company’s fortunes nearly complete, there is a renewed focus on growth via organic and external means. The recent purchase of FlexLife Health and suspension of its home sleep testing services are testament to LifeWatch’s new strategic direction.
Established and growing digital health player
18 Nov 15
LifeWatch’s remote diagnostic monitoring services provide physicians with critical information to determine appropriate treatment and thereby improve patient outcomes. Digital health is a rapidly advancing sector that is playing an ever important role in the trend towards a more holistic approach to diagnosing, treating and monitoring diseases. LifeWatch specialises in ECG-based cardiac monitoring devices and systems. H115 revenues rose 9.1% to $52.5m, driven by growth in the US market, and the firm posted its best EBIT ($3.8m) and EBITDA ($7.2m) numbers since 2009.

Interim results lead to upgrades
27 Mar 17
Bioventix reported a strong set of interim results with revenues increasing by 32% (c.12-17% at constant exchange rates (CER)), driven largely by the continued roll-out of its customers’ Vitamin D assay products. This, in turn, led to a 41% increase in pre-tax profits and a 40% increase in adjusted EPS; which is reflective of the operational gearing of the business. We are upgrading our adjusted EPS to 78.7p (+5%) and, consequently, are raising our target price to 1750p. At this price level, the shares would trade on a 22.4x FY 2018 P/E and an EV/EBITDA of 17x. We await confirmation of Siemen’s high sensitivity troponin assay launch, expected in FY 2018.

N+1 Singer - Futura Medical - Licensing deal for CSD500 in Portugal

The agreement with F Lima further extends the market reach of CSD500, Futura’s erectogenic condom, and brings the total number of distribution partners to eight. The deal is in line with the company’s stated strategy of partnering with leading regional players in the consumer products space. We expect the condom to be launched in Portugal later this year. We retain a positive stance.
