Analysts thoughts

Veris have demonstrated a significant increase in EBITDA margins at its core Veris Australia business while also maintaining steady group revenues for the quarter.

This is very strong evidence that the operating improvements that management flagged are indeed having an impact on the company's bottom line.

Better EBITDA margins will also result in a higher overall EBITDA figure if revenue is maintained as it has this quarter. These earnings could then be used to reduce debt which would also reduce the company's enterprise value (EV).

If this were to occur, this could reduce the company's current implied and already historically low ~6x EV/EBITDA multiple.
