  1. 1. SOFTWARE & SERVICES 24 NOVEMBER 2009 DAVID SHORE, CFA, MBA 416.860.6784 WEB 2.O WEEKLY david.shore@researchcapital.com Damian Wojcichowsky, CFA (Associate), 416.860.7652 LAUNCHED COVERAGE OF POYNT DEVELOPER, MULTIPLIED MEDIA GR O WT H I S T H E P O YNT Initiated coverage with a BUY recommendation: W e initiated coverage of Multiplied Media Corporation on November 19, 2009 with a BUY recommendation and $0.40 FTM (forward 12 months) target price. For our detailed analysis of Multiplied Media, please refer to our full length report titled, Growth is the Poynt. With exponential user grow th, MMC has reached a revenue inflection point: The Poynt user base has grown at a compound monthly rate of 50% since launch, with average monthly user additions at 144,000 since launch on BlackBerry App W orld in April 2009. W e expect Q4/F09 to represent a revenue inflection point with 100% sequential growth to $200,000, and 1,135% year-over-year revenue growth in F2010 to $5.2 million. User-base monetization should result in EBITDA positive status in 2H/10: As the rapidly-growing Poynt user base is monetized via query fees, transaction fees, and the sale of on-screen advertising space, we expect MMC’s EBITDA margin to climb above zero in the second half of F2010. W e believe that the company should approach steady-state EBITDA margin of 40%-60% after its revenue base surpasses the key $100 million plateau. Catalysts abound: Near-term growth catalysts include expansion to new platforms (launch on the Apple platform in December 2009/January 2010), functionality (addition of new functions, such as local weather and gasoline station search/pricing), and geographies (continued ramp-up in Germany and the UK). Over the next 24 months, we expect a further boost from a potential Google Android launch, addition of the UnoMobi business, launch of on-screen advertising within Poynt, and additional European expansion. UnoMobi – additional revenue streams and IP protection: Although the acquisition of UnoMobi’s email-to-SMS business adds an attractive revenue stream, the key rationale for the acquisition is the securing of UnoMobi’s U.S. patents which govern the provision of advertising to GPS-based mobile devices. Valuation: MMC currently trades at EV/R and EV/EBITDA multiples of 1.2 times and 2.0 times our FTM+2 estimates (ending June 2012), respectively. Our target price of $0.40 is based on our discounted cash-flow analysis and implies 3.8 times and 6.3 times our FTM+2 revenue and EBITDA estimates of $25.4 million and $5.3 million, respectively. 3,000 Poynt Monthly User Base November 2008 - April 2010E LTM compound monthly growth = 50% 2,500 Estimated iPhone/iPod Touch launch date Unique Users (thousands) 2,000 BlackBerry Development Challenge Grand Prize 1,500 European Poynt launches in UK expansion 1,000 Poynt available on 500 BlackBerry App World Poynt launches in Germany - Oct-08 Dec-08 Feb-09 Apr-09 Jun-09 Aug-09 Oct-09 Dec-09 Feb-10 Apr-10 This report has been created b y Anal ysts that are emplo yed b y Research Capital Corporation, a Canadian Investment Dealer.
