What is the fair value for Opensys? In the latest announcement, Opensys mentioned “In the last five years, the total number of CRMs in the market has grown exponentially with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of close to 40 percent.” Its trailing 4Q earnings growth is 44.44%.
To be realistic, the 40% growth rate can’t go on forever. 25% is more realistic over the next few years. Based on PE ratio of 25 times, the fair value is RM0.82.
Future prospects
The future looks exciting for Opensys. In 2017 annual report, Opensys mentioned that it had installed over 2,500 CRMs in Malaysia since 2014 and became the industry leader with 80% market share.
