What are analysts saying about DigitalGlobe stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about DigitalGlobe stock:

  • 1. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "During market hours on Friday Feb. 17, it was reported that DGI was in talks regarding a possible combination. The commentary focused on a potential acquisition by MacDonald Dettwiler, a Canadian space and technology company, with U.S. subsidiaries. We believe the possible deal talk highlights DGI's intrinsic value. Our estimates and PT remain unchanged." (2/21/2017)
  • 2. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "Let's assume the takeover talks reported last Friday are true and DigitalGlobe management is shopping the company. How much can it go for? The company operates in two segments: analytical services and imagery, each with distinct margin profiles and we believe distinct takeover multiple characteristics. The company's analytical services business generates about $200 million annually in revenue and EBITDA margin of about 10%. The remaining $620 million in imagery revenue generates about $365 million in EBITDA, but both revenue and EBITDA include non-cash deferred revenue of about $52 million. Adjusting for this results in about $315 million in imagery EBITDA. The range of $24 to $50 is not particularly useful. We think 10x, given the competitive dynamics and contract concentration is most likely resulting in a possible take-out value in the mid-$30's." (2/21/2017)
