Amsterdam – 26 April 2022 – Photon Energy N.V. (WSE&PSE: PEN, FSX: A1T9KW) (‘Photon Energy Group’ or the ‘Company’) announces that its stock has been given a ‘buy’ recommendation by AlsterResearch, a Hamburg-based research house specialising in small and mid-caps. The research report views the Company as an early mover in the solar market with a clear focus, well-positioned to benefit from current trends in the energy sector. The analysts have high expectations for Photon Energy Group’s growth outlook and begin their coverage with a recommendation to buy, setting a target price of EUR 4.10 (approx. PLN 19.0, CZK 100.0) for the Company’s shares.
The growth of Photon Energy Group has been driven by its strong project pipeline and the increasing competitiveness of solar energy, a result of the steep decline in production costs and rising electricity prices.
AlsterResearch views solar as a crucial building block in the decarbonisation of economies and thus expects it to be the fastest growing renewable energy source. Photon Energy Group fits well into this trend, combining strong ESG credentials with transparent reporting and open capital market communications.
The Company’s decision to supply clean energy directly to the market on a merchant basis going forward and its ability to partially switch some of the plants in its IPP portfolio from fixed feed-in tariffs to higher market prices could result in an estimated compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for 2021 - 2024 of 37% for revenues and 72% for EBITDA.
According to AlsterResearch, the above factors make Photo Energy Group’s stock highly investable despite its relatively small size.
