SeeThruEquity, an equity research firm, in December 2016 issued an update note to its report on Net Element and adjusted its target price per share to $2.45. In the revision, the research company expressed optimism about Net Element’s revenue growth of 10% year-over-year in 3Q16 to $14 million, up from $12.7 million in 3Q15.
At the same time, SeeThruEquity noted that Net Element had liabilities on its balance sheet of $16.8 million, inclusive of $4.2 million of financial debt. “We continue to see the balance sheet as an area to watch for NETE, as access to capital has been a swing factor in the performance of the stock,” it said, noting that Net Element has managed to grow but requires capital to finance its aggressive strategy. It noted Net Element’s $10 million stock purchase agreement (SPA) with Esousa Holdings, LLC.
In that July 6, 2016, agreement, Net Element stated that the use of any proceeds would be for working capital and general corporate purposes. The SPA has a 30-month term from its initial date. Among its terms, Net Element can present purchase notices to Esousa to buy an aggregate total of $10 million of its common stock at prices per share to be determined by the NASDAQ market.
