Audinate is an ASX 300 listed stock with a market cap of over one billion dollars, yet it seems not many in the Australian investment community have ever heard of the company. The company’s 90-day average trading volume is 145,298 shares per day. Investors who found this company have been well rewarded; the share price is up 772% since listing in 2017, 57.6% year over year, and 78.4% year to date.
Dante generates minimal publicity since the platform and its associated add-ons are sold primarily to manufacturers of high-end AV equipment. By the end of 2021, 361 different manufacturers were incorporating Dante ethernet connection in 3,034 AV devices. Dante has become the “protocol of choice” for 91% of the AV products that are using networking.
The company has experienced revenue growth in each of the last four fiscal years, and reached the milestone of maiden profitability in FY 2023.
