What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ribbon Communications stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ribbon Communications stock:
  • 1. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We believe they also continue to have the same revenue outlook for FY19." (6/12/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ribbon Communications Inc. develops communication software. It provides session border controllers, diameter signals, policy and routing servers, media and signaling gateways, cloud and mobility solutions. Ribbon Communications Inc., formerly known as Sonus Networks Inc., is headquartered in Westford, Massachusetts. " (5/10/2019)
  • 3. National Securities analysts commented, "Execution on baseline merger cost synergies should drive EBITDA growth that we
    think is underappreciated. Through the seasonally slower 1H:18 and amid in-progress cost
    cutting, RBBN generated $21 million of adjusted EBITDA. Guidance is for at least $75 million in
    2018 and a run rate exiting 2018 of $100 million, excluding contribution from the acquisition of
    Edgewater Networks. We anticipate around $80 million of traditional EBITDA in 2019 putting
    shares at 7.4x forward EV/EBITDA compared to a historical 11x.

    Opportunities for profit expansion extend beyond cost cutting. RBBN sells a nascent
    Unified Communications and Unified Platform as a Service (UCaaS and CPaaS respectively)
    product, Kandy. Not yet a significant contributor, the CPaaS service enables carriers to extend
    an API to developers to easily embed unified communications features in custom software
    applications. Carriers can better leverage their network and compete with companies like Twilio
    (NYSE: TWLO – NR - $66.41). We find this a sound fit given RBBN’s core service provider focus.
    Contribution margins from Kandy should be significantly higher than the current company gross
    margin of around 55%. Further, software to aggregate and analyze data from carrier IP
    networks generated from session border controller (SBC) devices provides real-time insight into
    network status, disruptions, and potential security breaches. These software products are in the
    early stages of commercialization and have the potential to contribute growth at high margins.

    We initiate coverage with a BUY rating and $8.50 price target. We think the company
    has several paths, not mutually exclusive, to drive shareholder returns; the highest probability
    is executing on cost synergies, which alone puts RBBN on track for around $80 million of 2019
    EBITDA and placing shares at a deep discount to historical and peer norms. Organic growth
    from new software products and accretive acquisitions are also potential contributors. We apply
    an 11x multiple to 2019 EBITDA to derive an $8.50 price target." (10/22/2018)
