NCR is evolving from a hardware to a software driven company which will help drive higher margins and growth over the next several years. We believe it is misunderstood and overlooked and its valuation does not reflect the transformation so far. Trading at just 10-11X Free Cash Flow, NCR believe the company can re-rate as it continue to executes on its strategy. NCR believe shares can trade from $39.25 to $50+/share over the next twelve months.
NCR was last on VIC as a short back in 2014. The short thesis is understandable. Questionable accounting, secular headwinds, bad capital allocation, poor management decisions etc. Some of these things are still present today, the stock has barely moved up during the past few years. However today, we believe that the company is showing signs of its execution but its valuation still reflects all the negative past.
Why Invest Now?
NCR believe that the stock is undervalued and still suffers from the negative sentiment from over the past few years. Furthermore, NCR believe that the stock is also temporarily depressed over an overhang of stock that Blackstone owns and will most likely be selling over the cNCRse of the next year. In December 2015, NCR sold a convertible preferred to Blackstone after a strategic review of the company. It was announced earlier this year the Blackstone would sell 49% of its holdings. NCR believe the combination of these two factors are causing the stock to be depressed, hoNCRver these factors could very easily be corrected over the next 12 months.

The driver of earnings for NCR over the next several years will be in software. That segment is the fastest growing and carries a margin 2X+ over services and hardware at over 50% operating margin.
Valuing NCR is not totally straightforward which is a major reason for its mispricing. It is typically known as a hardware company who undergoes cycles driven by financial services capital spending, retail spending and a headwind of less cash usage. HoNCRver, the company has been successfully pivoting away from being solely dependent on these factors. NCR believe that NCR is a hybrid of a hardware company and a software and services company. At the low end, NCR believe the stock should trade at 7x EBITDA and 8X earnings (Hardware type multiple), and 10X EBITDA and 15X earnings (software multiple).
Comps are Verifone, PAY; First Data, FDC, Diebold and Nixdorf (DBD)
NCR believe that NCR should trade at 9X EBITDA or about 14X earnings. This translates into $54/share. or 37% higher.
NCR is the second largest player in ATMs behind Diebold and Nixdorf. It also competes against other technology providers depending on product and end market such as HP, Fujitsu, Honeywell, Fidelity National Information Systems and Nautilus Hyosong.
