Executing to strategy
13 Feb 17
We reduce EBITDA forecasts, updating for last November’s trading statement and the September 2016 acquisition of Dot Property. This is not a reflection of Mitula’s operational performance, which continues to progress to strategy, but of additional investment in its self-serve platform, expansion into the fashion vertical and the strengthening of its market capabilities. Mitula is growing strongly, enjoys high EBITDA margins and is well financed. The 40% EV/EBITDA discount to its peer group average deserves investor attention.
Showing the benefit of geographic reach
18 Aug 16
Mitula Group (MUA), a leading aggregator of online classified listings, has delivered H116 normalised profit of A$5.6m, a year-on-year increase of 94%. H116 normalised EBITDA of A$7.14m was 3.4% below the company’s guidance issued in May due to weaker currency and trading conditions in the South American markets. However, Mitula delivered a record EBITDA margin of 52.5%, up from 43.7% y-o-y, and this is superior to its peer group’s median EBITDA margin of 32.8%. MUA is trading at a 46% discount to our blended valuation of A$1.40/share.
Greenlighting new revenue flows
07 Jun 16
Mitula Group (MUA) is a leading aggregator of online classified listings, operating in the global online advertising market. While MUA reports on a calendar year basis, it has reaffirmed its 30 June 2016 prospectus forecast for NPAT of A$10.1m. Our NPAT forecast for this period is within 1.2% of current guidance. More significantly, MUA has identified new revenue streams from its emerging markets that could lead to a medium-term revenue uplift not currently forecast.

Mitula Group is a leading aggregator of online classified listings, operating in the global online advertising market. Its specific growth techniques, together with existing scale and a focus on higher-growth markets, should drive medium-term growth ahead of the sector, we believe. The company listed on ASX in July 2015, raising A$26.52m gross at an offer price of A$0.75/share. Mitula Group is already profitable, has met its prospectus guidance for CY15, is on track to meet its 2016 fiscal year prospectus forecasts, and has made its first post-IPO acquisition, buying Spain-based real estate classifieds aggregator, Nuroa Internet SL for ~€3m (A$4.47m).
N+1 Singer - IQE - Upgrade cycle set to continue
24 Mar 17
IQE’s FY’16 results showed good growth in all key segments and came in c.4% ahead of our recently upgraded forecasts. We have upgraded our forecasts today by 5% and 3% in FY’17 and FY’18 respectively, but expect the upgrade cycle to continue. The increase in capex in FY’16 looks to us a strong indication of future volume increases, and we see scope for significant upgrades through the course of our forecast horizon. We highlight three opportunities in this note, each of which could materially move the needle in its own right. IQE is one of our key picks for 2017 and has performed strongly YTD (+48%), but we believe there is more to go for. We increase our target price to 76p and retain our Buy recommendation.
Or, helping a juggernaut turn on a dime
24 Mar 17
Sopheon has spent many years evolving a state-of-the-art platform allowing Enterprise customers to manage and monitor their pipelines of innovation. As this market matures and on the back of some major reference client wins, Sopheon’s Accolade product is beginning to see material success on a number of fronts. This note describes the marketplace, the technology, and the progress now being achieved.
Stronger and stronger
23 Mar 17
Sopheon has reported strong prelims in line with the January trading update which had demonstrated that revenue delivery had been achieved on cost underspend, leading to EBITDA (+7% vs FY16E) and adjusted PBT (+22%) outperformance. Strong licence sales, high levels of recurring revenue retention (94% by value), and ever upgrading product portfolio in terms of functionality delivered revenue strength. Gartner recognition illustrates the transition from a product which needed to be described then sold, to a solution set sought by customers to deal with the increasingly acknowledged enterprise problem of efficient product lifecycle management. Sopheon is well positioned for future growth, and board confidence for future growth leads to planned increase in investment, yet still delivering $5.6m ($5.3m pre FX) EBITDA. Having smashed through our FY16 forecasts and target price, we restore FY17 forecasts and lift the 12-month target from 360p to 620p.
Acquisition of Infracast Limited
27 Mar 17
IMImobile have announced the acquisition of Infracast Limited for an initial consideration of £8.2m. Infracast is a leading provider of multi-channel messaging applications and will expand IMImobile’s customer base whilst providing significant cross-selling opportunities. This looks another high quality acquisition. We remain Buyers and increase our T/P to 220p.
