3 ASX small cap shares you’ve never heard of

Gentrack Group Ltd (ASX: GTK), Catapult Group International Ltd (ASX: CAT) and Yowie Group Ltd (ASX: YOW) shares might be flying under the radar of many investors.


Gentrack is a Kiwi software business, developing and selling billing and other crucial software to energy and water utilities, and airports. The company is tapping into the UK water market following deregulation. Gentrack recently made the acquisition of Junifer Systems, which will substantially expand its footprint.

Gentrack also recently announced some acquisitions to build its presence in airports throughout the world. Despite being a smaller company, Gentrack pays a handy dividend.

Catapult Group

Recently, it seems the only thing catapulting is the Catapult share price — downwards! Shares in the Melbourne-based sports technology business have fallen around 57% since their high in August.

Catapult develops GPS tracking devices and software used by professional athletes in the AFL, NRL, NFL, soccer, basketball and more. For these teams, with players worth millions of dollars a season, using Catapult’s technology is a no-brainer because it can help track injuries, endurance and gameplay. Catapult is also pushing into the ‘prosumer’ market.


Yowie Group is the owner of the once-popular children’s chocolate with a surprise toy. The company has already rolled out its chocolate to US retailers, such as Walmart and many others.

Most recently, however, the $81 million company returned to Australia. Initial feedback appears very positive. However, with Yowie shares below 40 cents — from over $1 a year ago — it may take something special for the company to get back to its previous high.

Foolish Takeaway

If you have a higher risk tolerance, these three companies should be on your watchlist. Of the three, Gentrack is my favourite but both Catapult and Yowie could offer significant upside for patient investors.
