ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 2, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- RedChip Visibility, a division of RedChip Companies, Inc., announced that it has issued a Second Quarter 2007 Research Update on Orsus Xelent Technologies, Inc. (AMEX:ORS).
In a rapidly changing and competitive marketplace, ORS continues to expand through strategic, cooperative relationships and innovation. ORS delivers explosive revenue growth and continues to expand its customer base in traditional and new markets. For the first half of FY 2007, revenues surged 43% compared to the first half in FY 2006. At the beginning of 2007, ORS changed its business model in an effort to avoid becoming a pure cell phone commodities player. Management shifted the focus of operations to mid-level and high-end products, and the result has been greater profitability for the Company. This strategy has allowed ORS to effectively reduce cost of sales and expenses as a percentage of revenues. For Q2 2007, cost of sales as a percentage of revenue declined to 80% from 86% in Q2 2006.
At a current price of $2.20, ORS trades at only 9x projected FY 2007 earnings and less than 1x projected FY 2007 sales. We believe that ORS will continue to experience rapid and sustained growth with a strong contribution from the sales of specialized application devices. We believe that ORS has significant upside potential; we maintain a "Strong Buy" rating. We have established a new 12 month price target of $4.80 based on a multiple of 20x FY 2007 EPS of $0.24.
