The share price performance has also been very closely tied to the efficiency of the Ark Next Generation Web ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKW) and Ark Autonomous Innovation & Robotics ETF (BATS: ARKQ), provided the reality that Cathie Timber and also the ARKQ Fund owns 3.46% of the shares exceptional with an ordinary cost basis of US$ 8.06.
The considerable underperformance of the ARK funds in 2014 (down ~ 19%) and the linked adverse belief keeping that decline may have added to the severe selloff in Nano Dimension stock.
Although the valuations of the company were definitely frothy in the past, the existing financials of the company (even more particularly, the money available, the excellent annual report, and the existing EV) all point to a situation of considerable mispricing that the markets seem to have neglected, which may award early financiers in this story.
TAM & Company Model
As discussed over, Nano Dimension is an Israeli based service provider of machines for the manufacture of AME and other AM (Additively Manufactured) products.
Exactly what is Additive Production? Additive manufacturing is the process of creating a things by building it one layer at once. It is the opposite of subtractive production, in which an object is produced by removing at a solid block of material till the final product is complete. Usually, additive manufacturing refers to 3D printing.
For an easy layman’s explanation, to create an object making use of additive manufacturing, someone should first create a design. The style is then sent out to the 3-D printer, which starts developing the item immediately. There are many sorts of additive manufacturing devices dealt with produce different items. Nano Dimension’s Dragonfly printer prints motherboard and also digital tools. On the other hand, its Fabrica printer prints mini items.

Currently, a big percent of Nano Dimension’s sales comes from its equipment printers. However, like all printers, as soon as a customer has actually gotten a printer, he will certainly need to constantly buy the printer’s “ink”. NNDM also has an additional avenue of persisting income coming from its solution agreements.

On 14 December 2021, Yova Stern, Chairman and CEO, purchased $500,000 well worth of shares from the competitive market. Coming from a stock that has actually seen enormous dilution of investors in the past, this may be the signal of an opportunistic entrance factor for those that have yet to grab shares. Furthermore, in a recent news release, Yova announced that:
” Recent occasions are encouraging. We have revealed our new DragonFly IV system, integrated with a development trip software application, at the Productronica Show in November, 2021. Because that launch, we have actually already marketed two DragonFly IV printers to a top government protection supplier as well as European government agency, in addition to finishing 2 beta sites with various other leading clients.”

Relating to the company’s leading line, Nano Dimension’s earnings fell by 52% in FY20. Despite the loss, experts expect strong near future development of 150% in 2021 and also 250% in 2022, with YoY positive quotes as much as FY25 at a CAGR of 123.2%.
Although the company’s EBITDA has also been negative for the past 5 years, experts prepare for a turnaround with EBITDA projected to hit US$ 10M by FY23, representative of an EBTIDA margin of 20%.
Regardless of the instead grim revenue and also EBITDA photo currently, the thesis of this article is not a fundamental deep value play. Some do anticipate the TAM of this market to be substantial which it may be, yet I intend to highlight the inconsistency on the market value of the stock with the cash money on hand, which can just really be valued when we look to the balance sheet.
The stock presently trades at a market cap of US$ 970M, yet has US$ 1.4 BN of cash, cash equivalents, and temporary financial investments (STI) on its annual report, of which US$ 1.1 BN represents one of the most liquid kind of cool hard cash. With an overall financial debt of US$ 3.5 M and no long-term financial debt (LTD), the present financial debt degrees are minute and do not stand for any type of essential threat to the firm’s operations.
When we aim to an extra short-term statistics, the Current Ratio (CR) & Quick Proportion (QR) of the stock both profession at 95X, given that inventories stand for a really small % of the possessions. Regardless of having unfavorable EBITDA, the relative Internet Debt to EBITDA proportion is 22.8 X, provided the massive Net Debt of -US$ 1.38 BN having already factored financial debt into account.
Nano Dimension presently also trades at a LTM P/BV of 0.66 X, which basically compares the market capitalization of the firm to its net properties. Beginning a position today belongs to acquiring the business for 0.66 on the dollar which presents an amazing undervaluation, out profits however rather on internet properties.
Given the above, coupled with the reality that the stock saw a heavy selloff, Nano Dimension currently trades at a market cap of US$ 970M but a joke of an EV of -US$ 400M, which emphasizes simply exactly how outrageous the present evaluation is. Though not likely, but for the purpose of viewpoint, if administration seemed like fulfilling shareholders, they might basically get the entire firm several times over. If they opt to do a share bought program (SRP) instead, they could get 50% of the float and also still have 1/3 of their cash balance left over.
Although Nano Dimension did increase the substantial money handy using share issuance at US$ 15/share, which triggered enormous dilution to existing investors, today’s evaluations are also much gone.
Moreover, with a short rate of interest of 8.4%, any kind of positive driver, be it pertaining to the basics in the firm or a turn-around in the performance of ARK’s funds, can send the stock price dramatically greater.
That being claimed, no investment, no matter the thesis, is unsusceptible to market and also idiosyncratic danger. One risk would be the fact that administration remains to weaken capitalists and also raises much more cash money through even more share issuances, although the probability of that appears skeptical. The annual report is packed with money to release if any type of procurement seems beneficial. Nevertheless, if Nano Dimension locates no other firm to buy, which was the initial factor given to financiers for the equity issuance, and also continues to burn cash money to finance their present procedures without any meaningful income adjustment, the EV will start to reverse therefore will the mispricing possibility.
Additionally, this thesis greatly banks on the hopes of management announcing a SRP to the advantage of financiers, which might be the favorable driver required to reverse the recent drop. However, looking to history, it is evident that monitoring means to adamantly stick to their pitch of conserving the cash money for acquisitive chances, and also not to reward investors given that they have yet to do so in spite of the considerable selloff.
Nano Dimension runs in the 3D printing sector, as well as its offerings and product portfolio are not obsolete in the slightest. There is no factor for the business to be patronizing a smaller market cap than its money heap. At the very least, its market cap must remain in the variety of its cash stack, and if this were to occur, it would be trading at US$ 5.50/ share, representative of a 40% upside from its existing share price.

If we were to make use of the P/S proportion, it likewise indicates significant undervaluation. Analysts expect Nano Dimension to have a profits of US$ 63M by FY25. For the past 5 years, NNDM has actually traded at a mean multiple of 183X. If we were to use a much more conventional multiple of 30X, the stock would certainly have a market cap of US$ 1.9 BN, agent of an upside of 93% from today’s share price.
Because of constant dilution, Nano Dimension has been ruthless in its therapy of shareholders the past number of years. Furthermore, the firm’s service model, which rely on offering hardware, provides inconsistent profits.
Additionally, it runs in the field of 3D printing, as well as a case can be created its item offerings to be embraced by numerous universities. If the company is additionally able to put their funding to excellent usage, and obtain useful business that can add significant value, it might command a much greater valuation in the future based on profits.
Taking all the above-mentioned into account, and also not failing to remember the primary story of this post, the existing valuations for the firm make little sense from all angles. The market seems to have actually disregarded Nano Dimension due to its close relation with the Ark Funds, yet the fact that it has been liquidated so much, such that financiers are able to purchase a dollar of the business for less than a dollar, talks quantities.
