As previously reported, Northland analyst Mike Grondahl initiated coverage of PropTech Acquisition, which will soon be merging with Porch via shareholder vote on December 21, with an Outperform rating and $17 price target. Porch offers software and services to about 11,000 "critical home service companies," such as home inspectors, moving companies, utility companies and warranty companies, noted Grondahl, who said he likes Porch's "expansive" list of owned/operated services and brands and its "impressive" revenue growth and long-term model.

PropTech Acquisition and…

PropTech Acquisition and Porch.com have entered into a definitive agreement which would result in Porch becoming a publicly listed company. The companies said in a release, "Upon closing of the transaction, PropTech will be renamed Porch.com, Inc. and is expected to remain listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the new ticker symbol 'PRCH.' Porch delivers software and services through several wholly-owned brands, including Inspection Support Network, or ISN, Elite Insurance Group, HireAHelper and Porch.com. In 2019, Porch processed approximately $2.2 billion of gross services volumes through its platform. The combined company will have an estimated post-transaction enterprise value of $523 million, consisting of an estimated equity value of $728 million and $205 million in cash and no debt, assuming no redemptions of PropTech public stockholders. Cash proceeds raised will consist of PropTech's approximately $174 million of cash in trust (before redemptions) and an additional $150 million private investment at $10.00 per share. The net proceeds raised from the transaction will be used to support Porch's working capital, pay down debt and fund expansion through acquisitions. Porch's growth strategy is expected to generate estimated revenue and adjusted EBITDA of $120 million and $7 million, respectively, in 2021, exclusive of any accretive benefits from M&A activity made possible by this transaction. Current Porch management, employees and existing shareholders will roll 92% of their existing equity holdings into equity of the combined company. The business combination has been unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both Porch and PropTech. The business combination is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2020, subject to regulatory and stockholder approvals, and other customary closing conditions."
