Atomos (ASX: AMS) continued its deep selloff today, following heavy index selling on the back of coronavirus fears. It is likely some investors were simply taking profits however, after a strong rally yesterday on the back of well received half-yearly results. The results showed robust demand for the Ninja V and Shinobi, a powerful monitor that records in 4k resolution. The supply of their core product range has not been affected by the coronavirus, as the company invested in sufficient stock prior to the virus delaying the products. Delays did however affect production of the Neon, but investors were appeased by the fact that the company still met guidance despite challenging circumstances.
Atomos recorded a $32.6m of revenue growth for 1H20, up 35% compared to last year's 1H19. Additionally, the company recorded an increase in gross profit of $13.9m ($10.5m in 1H19), alongside a 35% rise in EBITDA to $1m ($0.7m in 1H19). The overall results show that their focus on social media and concentration in both US and Asian markets has paid off for the business, in spite of the US-China trade war affecting 1H20 numbers.
Although Atomos is currently selling off heavily due to the recent Coronavirus epidemic, its core business remains strong. Atomos continues to invest heavily in marketing and R&D (up 42%) which allows them to be a leading player in the video content creation market. They have a strategic partnership with Apple and Adobe, in addition to several camera makers, with notable examples including Sony, Canon, Panasonic, RED, and JVC Kenwood.
