Dureka Carrasquillo's Sohn London Conference Presentation

Long Mobileye (NYSE: MBLY) 

Mobileye is an Israeli software company based in Jerusalem. It is a pure play on autonomous cars. It develops software algorithms for damage limitation, analysis, and action.

-    It makes sensors – camera, radar and lidar (a surveying method that measures distance to a target by illuminating that target with a laser light)

-    It makes mapping software for telling autonomous cars where to go

-    Driving software to tell the car how to drive in different places

They have done deep research on autonomous cars. They visited over 150 factories. From invention to coming to market all major innovations in the car industry have taken about 30 years. Expect the first driverless car in 2020. Driverless cars could be a $600 billion market by 2030.

One of the biggest strengths of the company is that it owns the meta data. Ownership will be the best way to monetise the data in a market that will be dominated by large, powerful players. If Mobileye can gain 4% penetration of the global fleet of autonomous vehicles by 2020 then it is trading on 10x 2020 earnings.
