Could New Low Float Nasdaq Profile (AZ) Upend The Booming Global Grocery Market? 5 Potential Must-See Catalysts

The Benchmark Company Tags AZ With Stunning $18 Target

May 16th

Greetings Readers,

We've had a smoking hot start to May that can't be denied.

In fact, we've delivered 3 runaway breakout stars that have flipped the markets on their heads.

Here's a quick taste...

The party started on May 3rd when UTOLF shot like a missile from an open of $.179 to a high of $.34 for an incredible run of 89%.

After that, BGTTF (text alert) stole the show when it surged for a two day move of 38% from an open of $.10 on May 4th to May 5th's high of $.138.

Finally, last week CVST blazed approximately 194% intraday on a path from an open of $.034 to a high of $.10 on May 10th.

Listen. I've said it before. That was then, and this is now.

It's now time to turn your attention to a company that could be on the verge of transforming the almost $12Tn global grocery market with their flagship item.

For Monday, May 16th, there is only one Nasdaq profile to have at the top of your watch-list:

*A2Z Smart Technologies Corp. (AZ)*

A2Z Smart Technologies Corp. creates innovative solutions for complex challenges. A2Z's flagship product is the world's first proven-in-use mobile self-checkout shopping cart.

With its user-friendly smart algorithm, touch screen, and computer-vision system, Cust2Mate streamlines the retail shopping experience by scanning purchased products and enabling in-cart payment so that customers can simply "pick & go," and bypass long cashier checkout lines.

This results in a more efficient shopping experience for customers, less unused shelf-space and manpower requirements, and advanced command and control capabilities for store managers.

And right now AZ has 5 potential catalysts that could provide it with breakout fuel in the near term. Here's the list:

No. 1 - Last Week's Huge Order Announcement ($10Mn)

No. 2 - Benchmark Slaps AZ With A Massive $18 Price Target

No. 3 - Company Rolls Out Cust2Mate To Strong Initial Results

No. 4 - Another Low Float Profile

No. 5 - A2Z Closes Key Acquisition Of Israel-Based Manufacturer

But more on those in a second...

A2Z Smart Technologies' Flagship Product: Cust2Mate Smart Shopping Cart

A2Z Smart Technologies and Cust2Mate have developed a solution that may help streamline the $12Tn global grocery market.

Cust2Mate is the world’s first proven-in-use mobile self-checkout (SCO) shopping cart. With its user-friendly smart algorithm, touch screen and computer-vision system, it streamlines the retail shopping experience, automatically scanning purchased products and enabling in-cart payment so that customers can simply “pick & go”, bypassing long cashier checkout lines.

The result: significant time-savings for shoppers, reduced shelf-space and manpower requirements and advanced command and control capabilities for store managers.

Dynamic, fast and adaptive, Cust2Mate also provides shelf heatmaps for targeted advertising, direct marketing and special promotions, encouraging fuller shopping carts while generating increased revenues and pro-fits.

With Cust2Mate, shoppers enjoy an enhanced user experience, simply scanning the products they put in their cart. Cust2Mate’s barcode scanner, image validation and anti-fraud weighing systems record each purchase, virtually eliminating shrinkage. With its user-friendly interface and on-cart payment system, Cust2Mate revolutionizes shopping for customers and store managers, alike.

SELF-CHECKOUT: Cust2Mate is the world’s first proven-in-use self-checkout (SCO) smart cart for retail markets. It leverages advanced, user-friendly technologies to streamline shopping for consumers, while boosting the efficiency of store management.

ALL IN ONE SYSTEM. PICK. PAY. GO: With the Cust2Mate smart cart, shoppers simply choose the products they want. The cart’s sophisticated computer vision and weighing systems calculate the price and enable on-board payment, so customers can bypass check-out lines.

BIG DATA: With advanced Big Data capabilities, the smart cart constantly communicates with store management, keeping track of each shopper’s activities, preventing fraud and automatically issuing re-stocking alerts.

TARGETED ADVERTISING: The smart cart targets the customers’ needs and desires, while promoting the products chosen by managers. Its large touch screen guides shoppers to store specials and encourages them to purchase ‘hot’ products.

COMPUTER VISION: When a customer selects a product, Cust2Mate’s sophisticated computer vision system, with its touch screen and integrated scanner takes over, acting as a mobile cash register. Special cameras identify and scan the barcode of each item placed in the cart. A built-in trade-legal scale calculates the price of sold-by-weight items. The cart’s smart algorithm ensures that customers can easily keep track of their purchases, while protecting the store against fraud. Cust2Mate is so smart it can even identify and ignore personal items – or children – if they’re placed in the cart.

Cust2Mate was designed for ease-of-use and increased revenues. While its user-friendly graphic user interface makes shopping faster and more pleasant for consumers, it also delivers focused direct advertising that guides them to special store promotions and discounts. As a result, your customers spend more time shopping, find the items that suit their tastes and budgets.

When the customer finishes shopping, Cust2Mate’s on-board payment system eliminates the need to stand in check-out lines. Instead, the entire purchase is paid for right on the cart, so customers can simply roll it out of the market.

SMART ALGORITHM: Because Cust2Mate keeps track of every purchase, it keeps store managers informed regarding ‘hot’ items – and automatically issues restocking alerts. That means increased control and lower labor costs. It’s a real game-changer for supermarkets.

Right now, AZ has several potential catalysts to focus in on. Check them out:

No. 1 AZ Potential Catalyst - Last Week's Huge Order Announcement ($10Mn)

A2Z Receives Order for Additional Smart Carts from Yochananof for An Aggregate of USD $10Mn

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / May 11, 2022 / A2Z Smart Technologies Corp. ("A2Z" or the "Company") (NASDAQ AZ) (TSXV:AZ), today announced that Yochananof, a premier Israeli supermarket chain has placed a follow-on order for an aggregate of 1,000 Cust2Mate Smart Carts, after a successful initial rollout in their stores. The aggregate value of orders received from Yochananof has increased to approximately USD $10Mn. The increased order was confirmed with a USD $1.75Mn down payment. The remaining balance will be paid upon delivery of the carts which will occur on an ongoing basis and completed by October 31, 2022. Yochananof has committed to rolling out Cust2mate Smart Carts in all its stores in Israel.

No. 2 AZ Potential Catalyst - Benchmark Slaps AZ With A Massive $18 Price Target

In-vest-ment banking firm, The Benchmark Company, tagged AZ with an $18 price target back in January of 2022.

Here's is one key highlight from the report:

Valuation

As is often the case in newly created, early-stage markets, valuation remains highly subjective. If public estimates are accurate, Caper was acquired by Instacart for ~35x revenue. We also believe Standard Cognition and Tracxpoint carry private valuations north of $1Bn. However, there are no real public yardsticks by which to compare A2Z, and thus we are left to rely on an EV/Revenue multiple based off of a model that has a multitude of unknown variables around order size, timing and SaaS uplift. While growth multiples have come in substantially, most of our broader streaming, early stage and SaaS-exposed companies still tend to trade in a range of 4-6x. As such, we are ascribing a 5x 2024E revenue multiple to arrive at our $18 per share price target. We note that our target does not include any incremental value from the other A2Z business segments, which we view as free as optionality.

No. 4 AZ Potential Catalyst - Another Low Float Profile

According to the Yahoo Finance website, AZ has a relatively low float.

The website reports this profile to have approximately 17.87Mn shares in its float.

Why is that important? It's important on one crucial level. Volatility.

With so few shares available for trading, other potential catalysts (like big news) could spark a vertical move in the short-term.
