SoundHound’s rapid growth is expected to jump 50% this year, taking it close to $100 million in sales led by its acquisition of Synq3 Restaraunt Solutions.

Despite an impressive sales growth, SoundHound is not yet profitable nor cash flow positive.

However, the cash burn declined Year-over-Year from $94 million to $68 million.

Unfortunately, management needed to issue debt and common stock to bring in enough capital.

Currently, the company is sitting on $95 million in cash which is roughly equivalent to its debt. In 2023, SoundHound issued an additional 54.4 million shares against their 200 million, diluting the stock by over 20%.

Since SoundHound doesn’t turn a profit, nor generate cash, traditional metrics aren’t relevant.

We’re left with price-to-sales, which runs a hefty 26.3x. That’s higher than all its peers including questionable stocks like (BBAI).

Even looking at the enterprise value to sales ratios don’t paint a rosy picture of the forward outlook.

Despite a lack of profitability, SoundHound has incredible growth, with sales up ~50% most years. There is likely a point where the company turns an operating income profit. However, that may be several years down the road.

Gross margins are the only thing going for SoundHound. And in that respect, they have some of the best.

Beyond that, we can at least say their other margins are improving.

Our Opinion 7/10

While the company has an amazing platform and a huge customer base, it’s burning through cash and will keep doing so.

Still, it has a lot of growth potential. And it’s latest acquisition will boost sales in the near future.

Management expects to achieve positive adjusted EBITDA in 2024, which would be a huge win.

This is a speculative stock. But it has too much runway to ignore.
