February 26, 2024, ST. PETERSBURG, FL – Water Tower Research (www.watertowerresearch.com) has published an Initiation of Coverage Report on Tuya, Inc. (NYSE: TUYA) titled, “Winter Is Over: IoT Ecosystem Builder Pioneers the Next Stage of Growth”. The report can be accessed here.

Founded in 2014, Tuya is a leading IoT ecosystem builder that enables businesses to quickly design networked intelligence into their products, creating competitive advantages for themselves and added benefits for end customers.

Traditionally, brands and OEMs required significant effort and budget to make their products smart and provide end customers with a unified customer experience. Tuya effectively addresses this market fragmentation through its one-stop platform and neutral infrastructure, which enables brands, OEMs, and developers to develop, launch, manage, and monetize smart devices and services in a quick and cost-effective way. Utilizing the infrastructure and tools built by Tuya, brands and OEMs in this ecosystem can develop a variety of IoT application scenarios and value-added services for their end customers.

As of 3Q23, Tuya had US$961 million in cash and no debt. The stock is currently trading at $1.66 per ADS, equating to a US$954 million market cap, which is below its cash balance. This translates to an EV of US$175 million (this calculation excludes ~US$200 million of time deposits recorded as long-term investment) as of 02/20/24. Analyst consensus estimates for Tuya’s 2023 and 2024 revenue are $227 million and $261 million, respectively. This translates into 0.8x and 0.7x of EV/revenue in 2023 and 2024, respectively, substantially below the peer group at 15.4x and 12.0x, respectively.
