GBC im Fokus

Aves One AG: kursziel deutlich angehoben

Die Aves One AG ist im Geschäftsjahr 2017 abermals dynamisch gewachsen. Der Umsatz stieg um fast 90 % auf über 53 Mio. EUR an. Der jetzt gemeldete Erwerb von umfangreichen Rail-Assets (VTG/Nacco-Deal) soll zu weiteren Steigerungen beitragen. Wir erwarten weiteres Wachstum von über 40% im laufenden Jahr sowie einen dynamischen Anstieg in den Folgejahren. Das Ziel von 1 Mrd. Assets und Managment könnte bereits 2019 und damit ein Jahr früher erreicht werden. Unsere Analysten sind vom VTG/Nacco-Deal überzeugt und haben das Kursziel deutlich auf 12,10 Euro erhöht (bisher 9,10 Euro).
