Sylogist Ltd, with symbol SYZ-T, is a SAAS company that suffered in the small cap market in 2022-3. However, it is making the right moves, has a good valuation, and high ROE margins. It targets government customers in western Canada and acquires companies to enhance its product offerings. While it has faced challenges in transitioning from 'income' to 'growth', it is showing short-term momentum and potential for future growth. Its latest fiscal year results showed a significant increase in revenues but a decrease in profit and gross profit margin. The company also revised its capital allocation strategy and reduced its dividend. Overall, experts are optimistic about its long-term growth potential.

Is watching it. Great, little SAAS company that suffered when the market shunned small caps in 2022-3. They're doing all the right things, valuation is fine and ROE margins are great. Their customers are governments, starting in western Canada. They buy companies that add-on to their existing products.

Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research

We would view SYZ as a possible take out, if the stock cannot regain some of its former valuation mutliples. Its transition from 'income' to 'growth' was not easy, but investors are supporting it now. It is trading very close to recent highs and is up 26% YTD so short term momentum is good. But it may still take awhile to get to the old highs. Even not considering its high dividend from before, earnings per share, even with high growth, is expected at 26c next year. That is still well below its range of 45c to 50c in the 2018 to 2020 period. But if SYZ can string together a few years of strong growth it will have a chance to get north of $10 or $11 down the road.

We think it still has some potential. 
It was dropped from our income portfolio because of the dividend cut, and really only for that reason. 
The company cut also because it wanted to conserve capital for growth. 
EPS is expected to double over the next two years. 
We would say it is a 'reasonable' buy.

TOP PICK
Sylogist Ltd.
It sells enterprise resource planning software to non-profits and schools to plan their HR and accounting. SYZ has a history of profitability but slow growth. He believes the new CEO will improve growth--the CEO has bought three companies in the last seven months; revenues will grow over 50% in the next 12 months. The stock has had a big run, then pulled back hard, so now is an entry point. It's a small version of tech companies like Enghouse. Trades at only 13 x EBITDA. (Analysts’ price target is $16.44)

It has a lack of top line growth. They recorded a disappointing quarter last week. They replaced the CEO four or five weeks ago and he is interested to see what he does going forward. He will be interested to see what they do with their high payout ratio. If you like the dividend, you will probably be okay at a hold at these levels.
