Sandvine is a leading provider of intelligent network policy control solutions for fixed and mobile operators. Service providers, such as cable companies, telcos, and wireless companies use DPI or deep packet inspection to identify, monitor and manage the data on their networks. The company';s extensive customer base serves more than 100 million broadband subscribers in more than 90 countries.

"We are pleased to have recorded another strong quarter and believe that these results solidify Sandvine';s position as the leader in the best-of-breed network policy control market," said Dave Caputo, Sandvine';s President and CEO. "This represents our fourth consecutive quarter of year-over-year revenue growth, profitability, and growth in our cash and short term investments balance."

While the stock has rallied year to date, National Bank does not believe the current price reflects the company';s operating leverage, and that management seems to have found the proper operating structure to execute sales growth and drive operating leverage.

Analyst Kris Thompson stated, "Our view is that Sandvine has solved its previous selling inefficiencies through internal realignment and product innovation. We continue to believe the company has a lead versus its peer group in service creation, an area that should command wireless carrier';s attention once LTE bandwidth starts to become constrained."

The company currently trades at $2.38, well below the $3.50 target price, and with 138 million shares outstanding, the company is capitalized at $328 million. Furthermore, the company is sitting on $91.4 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.
