Mach7 Technologies share price jumps 15% on quarterly update

The Mach7 Technologies Ltd (ASX: M7T) share price is up 15.44% to $0.78 in morning Thursday trade, following the release of its quarterly cash flow report and a business update. 

What did Mach7 Technologies announce in its quarterly update? 

For the first quarter of FY20, Mach7 announced that it has recorded its strongest quarterly cash flow result in its history. The company received $4.7 million in cash from customers and recorded $1.7 million in positive operating cash flows. At the end of the quarter its cash balance stood at $4.3 million.  

The $4.7 million in cash receipts from customers consisted of $1.6 million of support fees (recurring cash) and $3.1 million of software and services receipts. The quarterly cash receipts figure included a large payment from Advocate Aurora Health after it purchased the Mach7 Platform in July. Management also noted that cash receipts for the quarter did not include any receipts from Hospital Authority Hong Kong

Cash payments for the quarter were $3.1 million, which was in-line with the prior quarter of $3.0 million. The company also recorded free cash flow for the quarter of $1.6 million, and remains on track to meet its 12-month free cash flow break even target ending in February 2020. 

The business update also noted that Mach7 is completing active software installation and/or data migration projects across 20 of its customers. As a result of these projects the company will generate $2.2 million in services revenue that will be recognised over the remaining installation period on a % complete basis. The majority of this revenue is projected to be recognised in FY20. 

A small-cap stock for investors to watch

Mach7 has started FY20 strongly after securing $7.5 million of sales orders with a total contract value over five years. This includes its largest ever US deal to date with Advocate Aurora Health, valued at $5.7 million. The company has managed to grow its contracted annual recurring revenue to $8.5 million. 

At the time of writing, shares in Mach7 have risen 271% in 2019. Other small cap technology companies that have rewarded shareholders in 2019 include Alcidion Group Ltd (ASX: ALC), Audinate Group Ltd (ASX: AD8) and Bigtincan Holdings Ltd (ASX: BTH).

We hear it over and over from investors, "I wish I had bought Altium or Afterpay when they were first recommended by The Motley Fool. I'd be sitting on a gold mine!" And it's true.

And while Altium and Afterpay have had a good run, we think these 5 other stocks are screaming buys. And you can buy them now for less than $5 a share!
