Zacks Investment Research wrote in their report on Nextech AR (OTCQB: NEXCF) "If we were to take the ratio of bookings to revenues of Q3 2020 at 72.5%, which is our only data point so far, that would equate to revenues between $36 million and $44 million in revenues for 2021. As a result, we have increased our 2021 revenue estimate to a conservative $35 million until we have more clarity on how bookings will translate into revenues."

 

NEXCF may not be at these levels much longer.

Augmented Reality (AR) is just beginning to make its way into mainstream use and the market is exploding. NexTech AR is the only public pure play we know of that is providing services to allow companies to use AR in marketing and advertising their goods.

Zacks Investment Research Valuation of Nextech AR (OTCQB: NEXCF) $8.60 per share.

"We have taken a group of companies involved in augmented reality as well as companies that provide conferencing like Jolokai. At current valuations we get an average of 24.8 times EV/2021 Sales. So using US$27.4 million for 2021 estimated sales, and a 24.8 multiple, NexTech could be worth an enterprise value as high as US$680 million or a market value of $696 million. Dividing by the current fully diluted share count of 80.8 million, this would be a market value of US$8.60 per share or CN$11.00 per share."
