COMPANY HIGHLIGHTS: Excerpts (as conveyed by Argus Analyst Steve Silver) include:

  • Genians: Strong prospects for information security provider

  • A leader in the Korean Network Access Control market, Genians is expanding its offerings to include newer Endpoint Detection & Response and Cybersecurity Awareness products.

  • Genians is also expanding globally. Its Korea-based sales force focuses on the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East, while its U.S.-based team focuses on cloud services and device platform intelligence (DPI) in North America, Latin America, and Europe.

  • The shares currently trade at a significant discount to a group of software peers, which we attribute to a period of slower top-line growth and operating margins that have been pressured by investments in next-generation technology. However, we expect the valuation gap to narrow as Genians executes on its growth strategy.
