As mentioned above, SOPA has several potential breakout catalysts to pay attention to right now. Check them out:
No. 1 SOPA Potential Catalyst - An Analyst's $3.75 Target Suggest Strong Upside Potential From Current Chart Levels
Is SOPA undervalued???
That's what Edward Woo of Ascendiant Capital Markets may be suggesting with a raised price target from back in August.
With a new target of $3.75, that provides SOPA with potential upside over 900% from Tuesday morning's opening valuation.
Take a look at the report highlights:
Major M&A: Just announced in July 2023, the company has entered into an agreement to acquire 95% of PT Inetindo Info (“Inetindo”), a wholly subsidiary of Story-I Limited (“Story-I”). Inetindo is a leading Indonesia-based Apple Premium Reseller and Authorised Education Partner as well as an electronic gaming retailer for several different gaming companies. The purchase price is ~$1.9Mn and the deal is expected to close by September 2023.
Market opp's: We believe that continued strong economic expansion, robust population growth, rising level of urbanization, the emergence of the middle class, and the increasing rate of adoption of mobile technology provide large and fast growing market opp's for Society Pass and other technology companies in Southeast Asia (SEA).
Valuation attractive: We are maintaining our BUY rating, but raising our 12- month price target to $3.75 from $3.50, based on a NPV analysis, representing significant upside from the current share price. We believe this valuation appropriately balances out the company’s high risks with its high growth prospects and large upside opp's.
No. 2 SOPA Potential Catalyst - First Half 2023 Revenue Growth Moved At "Breakneck" Speeds
Society Pass Inc’s (Nasdaq: SOPA) 2Q/1H 2023 Financial Results Illustrate Continuing Breakneck Revenue Growth and Exceptional Pro-fit Margin Expansion; Confidently Forecasts Achieving Cash Pro-fit-ability in 2H 2023
Recognizes 348% Year on Year Revenue Growth for 1H 2023;
Gross Margin Increases to 29.9% in 2Q 2023 from -1.6% in 2Q 2022
NEW YORK, NY, Aug. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – Society Pass Incorporated (Nasdaq: SOPA) (“SoPa”), Southeast Asia (SEA)’s next generation, data-driven, loyalty, fintech and e-commerce ecosystem, today announces unaudited financial results for second quarter ended 30 June 2023 and a filing of its 2Q 2023 Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).Summary Points:
- With cash on hand of $10.8Mn (approximately $0.38 per share) and book value of $12.7Mn (approximately $0.45 per share) on 31 March 2023, SoPa is well capitalized for continuing acquisitions of SEA companies in its digital advertising, travel, lifestyle, telecommunications, and loyalty/fintech verticals for the rest of 2023.
- 1H 2023 revenues grew 348.0% year on year...
- 2Q 2023 revenues grew 338.3% year on year...
- 2Q 2023 revenues grew 7.1% quarter on quarter...
Raynauld Liang, Society Pass Inc Chief Financial Officer, explains, “Our continuing breakneck revenue growth and exceptional pro-fit margin expansion, as evidenced in the Company’s second quarter 2023 financial performance, substantiate our acquisitions-focused business plan to build the next generation digital ecosystem and loyalty platform here in SEA. Despite 1H 2023 revenues growing 348% year-on-year in the five largest economies of SEA, our 1H 2023 cash operating expenses DECLINED by 28%. Just as importantly, our pro-fit margins are dramatically improving on a year-to-year basis. We realized 29.9% gross margins in 1H 2023, up from a negative 1.6% growth margin in 1H 2022.”
Mr Liang elaborates, “I note that our two main subsidiaries, Thoughtful Media and NusaTrip, were only acquired in 2H 2022. Yet, in just under 12 months, both subsidiaries now contribute more than 90% of SoPa’s revenues. I expect both subsidiaries to materially contribute to the Group’s revenues and pro-fits in 2H 2023. Our third biggest subsidiary, NextGen Retail, announced the acquisition of a large retailer of Apple products in Indonesia. I expect NextGen Retail to grow much quicker in 2H 2023. Finally, with the Singapore launch of our SoPa Loyalty App Launch in June 2023, we have put the final piece of the puzzle in building out our business plan. The synergies generated between our loyalty platform and our subsidiaries will translate into significant revenue generation going forward. With the continuing performance in our three big verticals, we confidently project attaining cash pro-fit-ability sometime in 2H 2023.”

No. 4 SOPA Potential Catalyst - Two Proposed Spinouts In 2024 Could "Unlock Hidden Value" For SOPA
Society Pass Inc. (Nasdaq: SOPA) Announces Plans to Spinout Two Pro-fit-able Business Units Into New Publicly-Traded Companies via Nasdaq IPOs in 2024
NEW YORK, NY, Oct. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – Society Pass Inc. (Nasdaq: SOPA) (“SoPa” or the “Company”), Southeast Asia’s (“SEA”) next generation, data-driven, loyalty, fintech and e-commerce ecosystem, announces that its Board of Directors, together with its fi-nan-cial and lgl advisors, have evaluated a comprehensive range of strategic restructuring options to unlock shareholder value. As a result of these discussions, SoPa will pursue a spinout and initial public offering on Nasdaq in 2024 for its digital advertising ecosystem, Thoughtful Media Group Inc (“TMG”), and for its online travel platform, NusaTrip Inc (“NusaTrip”).
SoPa believes that its separately-traded TMG and NusaTrip subsidiaries will increase SoPa shareholder value as in-vest-ors can more clearly evaluate the performance and future potential of these profitable businesses on a standalone basis, whilst allowing each business to pursue its own distinct strategy and capital allocation policy. Both TMG and NusaTrip are managed by separate executive teams.
“We believe that separating and listing our principal businesses in 2024 will improve our ability to unlock hidden value for all our stakeholders,” says Raynauld Liang, the Chief Executive Officer of SoPa. “Both TMG and NusaTrip are profitable and have large and growing market opp's. This new proposed group structure will further increase both their operational agility and ability to focus on delivering exceptional solutions to their customers.”
Mr. Liang further notes, “SoPa’s actions follow the leads of both Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Kellogg's (K) spinning out operating subsidiaries and we plan on having the same success.”
