Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "Date and time of first dissemination: August 10, 2017, 09:39 ET Date and time of production: August 10, 2017, 09:39 ET Target Price / Valuation Methodology: Cubic Corporation – CUB Our $50 price target is based on the weighted blend of a 33x EPS multiple and a 14x multiple on our adjusted 2018 EBITDA estimate. Risks to achieving Target Price / Valuation: Cubic Corporation – CUB A few of the investment risks for Cubic Corp include the potential for financial statement restatements (the company restated YE2013/2012 on May 2014 and has completed two restatements in the last three years), issues with internal control over financial reporting (the company addressed earlier this year, defense spending by U.S. and allied nations, government contractor bill rates and contracting terms, acquisition integration, FX rates and interest rate movements, contract timing in the CTS business, transport project management and cost control, specific DoD program timing and contract award schedules, technology integration into the government and transport markets, competitive consolidation and program bidding, M&A opportunities and pipeline."

  • 3. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "CUB posted FQ1 results after the close yesterday that were better than we were expecting. By CUB standards,it was a relatively clean quarter and business appears to be tracking expectations in both the Defense and Transportation segments. CUB's defense business (60% of revs) was stronger than expected, with faster growth in Defense Systems. Mgmt remains optimistic about its pipeline of opportunities in Transportation (40% of revs). CUB appears well positioned to win the large multi-year MTA contactless fare card contract in NYC. Mgmt reaffirmed guidance for 3-6% rev growth for F17 and 10% growth in adj. EBITDA at the midpoint of its F17 guidance. We are tweaking our estimates for F17 and F18 and continue to look for significant improvement in profitability in F18. We reiterate our Buy rating."
