If you’re interested in owning a share of this high growth small-cap, here’s what you need to know before investing. 

Time to buy the [email protected] Capital share price?

[email protected] Capital started its life as Abal Group. Following the completion of the disposal of its core operating business (known as Imaginatik), the firm became a cash shell and dealing in its shares was suspended.

Abel changed its name earlier this year after the company agreed on the acquisition of [email protected] Srl. Trading in its shares has since resumed.

[email protected] is an early-stage financial technology, or FinTech business. It operates a technology platform that enables manufacturing and trading customers to improve their working capital position by releasing capital from their inventory stock.

The business model is similar to other peer-to-peer lenders. The company matches capital invested by its inventory funders to enterprises that need money. The platform earns a fee on the income generated from the loans and “inventory monetisation“.

As the business is only just getting started, it isn’t easy to figure out how much the [email protected] Capital share price is worth. That said, it’s clear the company has tremendous potential.

It originated more than €300m of prospective “inventory monetisation transactions” in its first six months of operation. Meanwhile, it’s estimated that the total size of the inventory financing market is €2trn. 

If this FinTech business can grab just 1% of the total addressable market, the [email protected] Capital share price may be able to continue its impressive performance. That 1% could mean €200bn of prospective inventory monetisation transactions for the firm. By comparison, the current market capitalisation of the group is just over £100m. 

Therefore, the [email protected] Capital share price looks cheap based on its potential market.

Diversification is key

However, it could be some time before the company reaches this point. Small-cap companies are notorious for missing their targets. Investors shouldn’t overlook this fact when evaluating [email protected], no matter how attractive the opportunity might seem.

Many peer-to-peer companies have failed to live up to expectations in the past. Some of these companies have caused substantial losses for their shareholders and funders on platforms. 

As such, it may be best for investors who want to own the [email protected] Capital share price to do so as part of a well-diversified portfolio. The company’s potential market is enormous. But we can’t overlook the fact that so many peer-to-peer companies have struggled to make it to the big time over the past decade.

Owning the stock in a diversified portfolio would allow shareholders to benefit from any upside while limiting downside risk.

Is this little-known company the next ‘Monster’ IPO?

Right now, this ‘screaming BUY’ stock is trading at a steep discount from its IPO price, but it looks like the sky is the limit in the years ahead.

Because this North American company is the clear leader in its field which is estimated to be worth US$261 BILLION by 2025.

The Motley Fool UK analyst team has just published a comprehensive report that shows you exactly why we believe it has so much upside potential.

But I warn you, you’ll need to act quickly, given how fast this ‘Monster IPO’ is already moving.
