As another marvellous endorsement of   Equals Group's (EQLS FOLLOW) strategic pivot to B2B 2 years' ago, the company said today that it had processed a 'monster' forex deal for a large corporate.

Generating one-off sales of £1.5m in Q4'21, & underlining once again its status as a credible counterparty in such international payment transactions.

CEO Ian Strafford-taylor saying: "It represents the largest single transaction ever completed by the Group and is a clear demonstration of our credibility among large corporates, the quality of our service proposition, and the level of commitment of our people."

Wrt the numbers, I have accordingly upgraded FY21 forecasts (but held 2022 unchanged), underpinning the 100p/share valuation. Plus at 69p, the shares trade on 2.8x 2021 EV/revenues, falling to 2.5x next vs >6x for the broader epayments space (see comments for charts).
