Strong momentum to continue into FY17
14 Feb 17
RNTS Media’s FY16 preliminary update points to pro forma (PF) FY16 revenue growth of at least 65%, in line with its recently raised guidance and our forecasts. RNTS reached EBITDA break-even during Q4, as expected. Contingent on planned financing, FY17 guidance for revenue growth of 30% and EBITDA profitability of over €3m has been introduced, a clear signal of ongoing strong momentum; we leave forecasts unchanged.
Programmatic and video drive exceptional growth
22 Nov 16
Exceptional revenue growth from RNTS Media’s programmatic technology and video ad formats continued into Q3 with revenues for the nine months up 83%. The company’s recently raised guidance seems comfortably achievable and we upgrade our revenue forecasts by 7% in FY16 and 9% in FY17. We now forecast adjusted EBITDA profitability from Q4 this year and in FY17. The 1.3x FY17 EV/sales rating, while a premium to peers, is looking increasingly justified.
Another increase in revenue guidance
01 Nov 16
RNTS Media has increased pro-forma revenue guidance for FY16 by c 10% to over €205m. The strong trading means the company will reach adjusted EBITDA breakeven in Q416 rather than during 2017 as previously targeted. The company’s guidance for 2017, currently for pro-forma revenues of over €240m, will be updated once it has finalised its budgeting. We will review our forecasts following the Q3 update on 18 November.
Significant acceleration in revenue growth
27 Sep 16
RNTS Media’s investment in programmatic trading, video and the recent acquisition of Inneractive drove a near doubling of pro forma revenues in H116. The recently raised revenue guidance, which has been reiterated, looks eminently achievable and the EV/Sales premium to peers increasingly justified.
Inneractive acquisition puts RNTS on the map
07 Mar 16
The proposed acquisition of Inneractive, a rapidly growing mobile SSP, will put RNTS firmly on the map among the larger listed ad tech groups. By connecting with the Fyber platform, it can offer a significantly wider audience reach to advertisers and deeper demand to publishers. With the first €100m of last year’s €150m convertible bond issue fully deployed, the EV/Sales valuation is becoming easier to digest.
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.
N+1 Singer - Instem - Investment to accelerate growth trajectory
28 Mar 17
FY16 results were as expected, reflecting some contract slippage towards the year end, the largest of which has since been signed. The outlook remains buoyant, particularly around SEND, where Instem continues to dominate the market. Further investment is however being made to further capitalise on the numerous growth opportunities. This will constrain short term profitability, but should pay back relatively quickly and leave forecasts on a higher for longer growth trajectory.
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.
