WHK: Risk Mitigation In The Digital Age

The new WhiteHawk (ASX:WHK) Research Report is now out!


New Proprietary Technology Platform

Whitehawk has developed a proprietary technology platform that focuses on identifying, prioritising and mitigating cyber risks for Small and Medium-sized businesses (SMB) and tailored online risk platforms and programs for Enterprise and government agencies. WHK takes a pragmatic and scalable approach to cyber risk by partnering and integrating best of breed publicly available data and analytics’ Software as a Service (SaaS) subscriptions.

Its added value lies in optimising a breadth of cyber risk data sets and producing Cyber Risk Scorecards an action plan that can be easily and affordably implemented by any company. Mitigation of cyber risks is largely done through third-party solutions that WHK vets and sells to customers in a revenue sharing agreement with the vendors, similar to the Apple App Store model.


Highly Scalable Business Model

Spending on cyber security by both the public and private sector continues to grow at a very healthy pace. The company has opened up a large addressable market in the Government and Enterprise verticals by subcontracting with larger business partners. Also, it is able to address the SMB market for cyber security through its partnership with Sontiq.

Combined with its revenue sharing agreements with many cyber security providers that can sell through online Cyber Risk Marketplace, we believe WHK has developed an attractive and highly scalable business model.


Valuation of A$0.34 per share

WHK is expected to strongly ramp up revenues in the next few years, at attractive and growing margins. The blended valuation, equally weighted between DCF and EV/Sales, yields a value of A$0.34 per share base case and A$0.41 per share in a bullish scenario.
