2011-03-28Rodman & RenshawDowngradeUnder Reviewn/a

We are putting NIV's rating Under Review from Market Outperform. NIV's stock has been halted by the exchange driven by developments leading to the resignation / dismissal of the company's auditor Malone Bailey LLC. NIV's Audit Committee plans to investigate the issues raised by Malone Bailey with the help of an independent third party. The Company is also interviewing candidates to appoint as its independent auditor. We will revisit our rating on getting additional clarity on the issue.

We have tried to get additional color from management on how the company is planning to respond to these developments and work with the exchange to resume trading in its shares. However, we have not received any response yet. We are removing our projections for the company until its SEC filings are made current. 

2010-10-05Rodman & RenshawReiterationOutperform$7.00

NIV shares are currently trading at P/E multiples of ~3.6x and ~3.1x to our FY10 and FY11 earnings estimates, and ~0.85x P/B ratio, we conclude that the stock remains attractively priced. We are comfortable maintaining a $7.00 price target for NIV, which translates into P/E multiple of ~12x and ~10x to our estimates for FY10 and FY11.

2010-08-13Rodman & RenshawReiterationOutperform$7.00

Management raised its full year revenue by ~$10 MM to the range of $290 MM~$340 MM, compared to previously announced $280 MM~$330 MM. We currently maintain our revenue and net income estimates for 3Q10 at $77.2 MM and $6.8 MM, our EPS estimate for 3Q10 is $0.15. For full year FY10, we expect revenue and net income of $307.7 MM and $26.1 MM, with diluted EPS of $0.58. For FY11, our projections are $340.3 MM, $32.5 MM, and $0.68, respectively. With the stock trading at P/E multiples of ~3.9x and ~3.3x to our FY10 and FY11 earnings estimates, and ~1.2x P/B ratio, we conclude that the stock remains attractively priced. We are comfortable maintaining a $7.00 price target for NIV, which translates into P/E multiple of ~12x and ~10x to our estimates for FY10 and FY11.

2010-07-08Rodman & RenshawReiterationOutperform$7.00

We believe the primary near term catalyst for the stock will be its 2Q10 results where investors should see revenues from 3G handset sales to China Telecom materialize (this was previously delayed). We are maintaining our 2Q10 revenue, net income and EPS estimates of $74.9 MM, $6.5MM and $0.16 respectively. Given the strength in China’s consumer electronics and mobile space an earnings beat would not surprise us.

2010-06-18Rodman & RenshawInitiationOutperform$7.00

In our opinion, any multiple expansion for NIV should be driven primarily by management’s execution of its strategy, margin improvements and handset driven contract wins. We believe NIV’s new manufacturing facilities, established customer base and profitable margins provide it with enough tools to address any near term competitive threats that may arise. At current levels NIVS is trading at P/E multiples of ~3.6x and ~3.0x to our FY10 and FY11 earnings estimates. We are comfortable assigning NIVS a $7.00 price target, which translates into P/E multiple of ~11.1x and ~9.3x to our FY10 and FY11 estimates.

NIVS is currently followed by 2 analysts. 1 give the stock a positive rating, 0 rate it neutral and 1 give it a negative rating.
