  • 2. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We believe associated hardware/node revenue could add substantially to this amount, and increase our PT to $8.50 given this validation of HLIT’s leadership in next gen cable access. Key Points Historically we have used a rule of thumb metric for Cable Access deployments of roughly 2X low margin Remote PHY node revenue to 1X high margin network core/software revenue. Applying this to the roughly $40M in annual software license revenue from Comcast specified in the filing for the 2020-2022 time period, with $50M to be recognized in CY19 yields a total annual revenue contribution from $120M range, about in line with the $100M estimated going back to the original 2016 agreement . The agreement also included the issuance of 7.8M in warrants to $4.76 strike, all of which are deemed to be vested currently according to the filing." (7/10/2019)
