Ebix subsidiary acquires assets of two travel companies with GMV of $140M

Ebix announced that one of its Indian subsidiaries has signed agreements to acquire the assets of Delhi based Pearl International Tour & Travels and Mumbai based Lawson Travels & Tours. The two companies cumulatively conduct a gross merchandise value, or GMV, of approximately $140M Both these companies will be integrated into EbixCash's Via travel division. The acquisition of the assets of the two companies will increase EbixCash's travel expanse across its two travels brands Via & Mercury, to a total GMV of $1.16B. Besides increasing EbixCash's travel foothold by 10,000 agents, it will also add 300 corporate clients and B2C portals to the EbixCash travel spectrum of products and services. The two acquisitions will cumulatively add approximately 450+ employees, 11 branches and 10,000 agents, leading to EbixCash's travel portfolio having 2,200+ employees, 212,450+ agent network, 25 branches and 9800+ corporate clients. Ebix believes that the two acquisitions once fully integrated into its Via division will generate operating margins of 30% or more, over the next few months. Ebix expects the acquisition to be immediately accretive to its earnings. Ebix funded the acquisition using its internal cash reserves and did not use any investment bankers for the transaction.

Market Perform
Ebix initiated with a Market Perform at BMO Capital
As reported earlier, BMO Capital analyst James Fotheringham initiated Ebix with a Market Perform rating and a price target of $85. The analyst says the company's valuation appears "full" and its business model offers "below-average potential to surprise positively with respect to revenue growth". If it does grow above expectations, Fotheringham states the upside would most likely come from the company's "potential to continue to grow by acquisition, as well as by its exposure to fast-growing international markets" like India and Brazil.

Ebix pullback on auditor change overreaction a buying opportunity, says Maxim
Maxim analyst Allen Klee thinks the market is overreacting to Ebix's announcement that it will be changing auditors, noting that his understanding is that the company is required to use an Indian auditor given that India has become a majority of its revenue. He also noted that the company said it plans to engage a "Big 4" auditor for all operations in 2019. He sees the pullback on the auditor change news creating a "compelling" buying opportunity and keeps a Buy rating and $113 price target on Ebix shares, which are down 13% to $62.72 in early afternoon trading.

Buy
Ebix share drop a buying opportunity, says Craig-Hallum
Noting that the company has announced that it will be changing auditors, Craig-Hallum analyst Jeff Van Rhee says his opinion on Ebix is unchanged. While a negative reaction to the auditor change headline is to be expected, the magnitude of the reaction appears to be misguided, he contends. The analyst points out that there is no difference of opinion on numbers, the company appears to be seeking and on a path to a "Big Four" auditor, and a second half of 2019 IPO timeline for EbixCash appears to be intact. He reiterates a Buy rating and $110 price target on the shares.
