Project Group (OTC BB: PJTG) - Turning Enterprise Software Growth Into Profits For You

Do you understand what Enterprise Software is? I constantly hear the phrase, but no one ever clearly defined it for me.

Enterprise Software is designed to run entire businesses. In the corporate world, there are two basic types of software applications: personal productivity solutions which include word processors and spreadsheets, and enterprise class solutions, which automate business processes. Another words, enterprise software integrates all the individual software components of running a company into one massive, hopefully seamless system.

German company SAP developed the first Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications. It was designed to bring together a company's disparate transactional data processes. For example, when a customer purchase order is entered in the sales department system, the warehouse is automatically alerted to prepare the order, the inventory updated and the account system is adjusted accordingly. 

Jupiter Media Metrix estimates the North American market for enterprise software applications and related services sold to small and midsize businesses alone was about $1 billion in 2001. It is expected to grow to $3.4 billion by 2006.

Enter Mr. Softy

As enterprise software solutions began to grow, cash cow Microsoft (MR. Softy) was late to the party. Not wanting to be left behind, Microsoft used it's immense cash resources to gain market share rapidly. In April of 2001 Microsoft bought Great Plains Software, which provided Mr. Softy a huge footprint in the US market. In July of 2002 Microsoft bought Navision (with 34,000 client company installations), one of the leading enterprise software companies in Europe.

While enterprise software is only the fourth or fifth largest segment of Microsoft's business, it is the fastest growing. Enterprise software sales grew 84% in 2002 at Microsoft. Estimates have it at about $600 million in 2003, surging to $1 billion in 2004. Mr. Softy delivers about $34 billion in annual sales.

The growth rate is exciting, and therefore a good target for investable dollars looking for higher returns. As an investor, how do you take advantage of the extraordinary growth? - buy Microsoft and watch it go up 7% over the next year? Not with my high risk/ high return capital. You find smaller peripheral companies that will enjoy extraordinary growth rates by hitching on to Mr. Softy's speeding train. That's where exceptional returns will be found.

The Project Group- Sells and Integrates for Microsoft

Did you know that Microsoft does not provide integration services for its software packages? They tried to, and discovered they weren't good at it. They just write the software, package it up, and sell it. They use partner companies to integrate and implement the highly complex Enterprise Software solutions tailored to meet the needs of medium to large companies.

Enter the Project Group. Sporting the enviable Microsoft Gold Certified Partner status, the Project Group is rapidly growing into one of the world's leading integrators of Microsoft Project Software. Year to date at the end of September, sales at Project Group were up 40% year over year despite a weak third quarter. Management informs me the fourth quarter will be the best in the company's history, and the company will likely be cash flow positive. I anticipate their growth rate will accelerate rapidly in 2004. 

Microsoft pays this company to handle the sales of their Enterprise software, and then the customer pays them to consult and manage the integration process.

Here's a list of their current customer base:

  • Microsoft
  • WalMart
  • Waste Management
  • Occidental Petroleum
  • Haliburton
  • Electronic Data Systems
  • Cooper Cameron
  • Tetra Technology
  • Solvay S.A.
  • Texas Industries
  • Dell Computer
Since June of this year, the company has landed multiple new assignments, and opened regional offices on the East Coast and in the Pacific Northwest.
Trading Alert on Project Group (OTC BB: PJTG)

The Project Group has experienced the normal growing pains associated with the demands of rapid growth. The balance sheet needs improvement, and the September quarter was lackluster due to new contract delays.

On a go forward basis the company looks very exciting. According to CEO Craig Crawford, the Project Group has booked enough business for the December quarter to generate more than double September quarter revenues, and approach the $1 million mark for the first time in corporate history. 

Management at Project Group me informed they have a high level of confidence in their future business bookings. In early December they plan to make a public projection for revenues and earnings looking out to 2004 and 2005.

The company sports an $8.25 million market cap. The intangibles of the Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Status and the customer base alone are probably worth that much. Throw in the company's unknown status and accelerating growth, and you have the ingredients for a potential win of the magnitude we've had with VirTra Systems (OTC BB: VTSI).

The trading history is limited. The stock split 2:1 in October. The blue line is the 50 day moving average, a good short term indicator of market direction. As you can see, the stock made a nice move in October, and has since retreated. It should now turn back up off the 50 dma.

The company came out with a news release just after the market closed on Friday. The company announced it had been retained to handle the Microsoft Project 2003 integration for three new client companies: Cooper Cameron, Tetra Technology and Solvay S.A.

These guys have momentum, and it will continue as IT spending recovers.

Here are my thoughts:

  • Buy up to $.20
  • Short Term Price Target (December): $.25- Longer Term- wait for sales and earnings projections in December for a prediction.
  • Stop Loss: $.11 (end of October low), or whatever your risk tolerance.
Every time you see one of the new goofy Microsoft commercials for Project Management Software, think of The Project Group.

Here is the complete text of Friday's news release for your review:
