TEL AVIV, Israel, July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TASE analysis project was launched in 2016 in order to raise investors' level of knowledge of TASE listed technology and life-science companies and the markets in which the companies operate, thus creating appropriate pricing and increasing the exposure of investors from Israel and abroad. Its goal is to encourage investments in these companies by removing the barrier of lacking understanding in the market.

In order to maintain professional, independent and unbiased analysis, the companies signed an agreement with the TASE to receive the analysis services for an obligatory period of two years. The companies cannot withdraw from the project during this period. The analysis is funded by the companies surveyed with funding from the Chief Scientist and the TASE.

Summary of Highlights
Neuronetics Inc., Brainsway's main competitor, filed an IPO on 31 May, 2018. Its public valuation was released on 27 June. The company has raised $94M by issuing 5.5 million shares at $17 per share, above the expected range of between $14 and $16 per share.

Neuronetics Inc. is a commercial stage medical device company focused on designing, developing and marketing products that treat patients who suffer from psychiatric disorders, namely depression and anxiety.

  • The global anxiety disorders and depression treatment market is expected to be valued at $18.3 billion by 2025.
  • Neuronetics has identified Japan, the EU and the US as its key target markets, and is witnessing increasing revenues in these geographies.

Neuronetics' market value is priced at $326 million; its enterprise value is estimated at $252 million

To date, Neuronetics has 781 installed systems and runs solely under a lease-based business model, generating $40.4M in 2017, i.e. $52,000 per system leased. Thus, we calculate a "system multiple" of $323,000.

We assume Brainsway currently has 360 systems leased (400 systems by the end of 2018). 360 systems at $323,000 a piece yields an enterprise value of $116.3 million enterprise value. In our previous valuation we evaluated Brainsway at $118 million.

Neuronetics' IPO provides for a benchmark of a similar company operating in a market with higher liquidity
