CloudMD: Canaccord Remains Bullish Following Virtual Conference

Recently, CloudMD Software & Services (TSXV: DOC)‘s CEO Essam Hamza participated in Canaccord Genuity’s Health & Wellness Virtual Conference. Doug Taylor, Canaccord’s Healthcare analyst, has a $3.25 12-month price target and a speculative buy rating on the company.

Taylor says that most of the meeting was focused on the integration of CloudMD’s recent M&A and the prospects for further M&A. Talyor adds, “When asked about the ability to continue consolidating at this pace, the company noted it screens for management teams that can operate autonomously and intentionally incentivizes acquired teams (using stock) to continue to drive performance post-acquisition.”

Taylor adds, “Don’t expect the company to remain idle.” He says management noted that after all the deals close, the company will have roughly $50 million in capital to focus on another round of accretive M&A. “Management noted that it has an active pipeline of targets that are potentially accretive, already profitable and synergistic with its existing offerings,” Taylor says.

Taylor expects that CloudMD’s increased focus on employer-focused solutions will be the next key driver. Recently, CloudMD released their CloudMD on Demand white-label telehealth solution. Alongside their recent acquisitions of HumanaCare and Snapclarity.

Taylor expects CloudMD to report its third-quarter financials next week. They forecast revenue to be $3.7 million and an adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.8 million. He explains that revenue growth is likely due to the “continued adoption of its telemedicine platform and early contributions from its South Surrey Medical acquisition.”
