TEMENOS - NEUTRAL vs. BUY | CHF58 VS. CHF118 (+9%) The wake-up call

We downgrade our rating to Neutral from Buy and have cut our DCF-derived target price to CHF58 from CHF118 - with very limited upside potential - following the profit warning announced on 13th October. We have slashed our adj. EPS estimates by 18-28% over 2022-2025, and have been more conservative in our medium-term assumptions and WACC. In this context of absence of economic visibility, banks think twice before investing in a transformation project, thus translating into lenghtened decision cycles – notwithstanding poor sales execution during the last few months. Finally, while share price performance has been poor since 2019, fundamental questions remain on company-specific challenges: subscriptions and SaaS, US growth, people, and ways to create more value for shareholders.

Since 1996, Bryan, Garnier & Co has been growing with an absolute conviction that the investment banking landscape would experience a major revolution: most of the large local generalist banking groups will disappear to the benefit of a handful of global powerhouses, and an emerging group of independent, highly specialised boutique investment banks.
