Accounts transparency a positive step forward
02 Dec 16
UMT has shown substantial progress in hitting key milestones since our initiation on the stock in May of this year. The launch of white-label mobile payments for Germany’s largest loyalty scheme, Payback, commenced smoothly in June and six major German retail groups are now using UMT’s system to provide mobile payments services to their Payback customers. The recent publication of key consolidated earnings data for H116 shows 34% EPS uplift from the unconsolidated figures for the same period, while management’s plans to publish consolidated financial statements for FY16 and IFRS standards for FY17 should improve reporting transparency and boost investor confidence.
New partner plus Payback contract going well
14 Oct 16
UMT has announced a partnership agreement with Points4More, a Munich-based provider of loyalty platforms. The partnership will enable UMT to tender for contracts requiring payment and loyalty scheme capabilities with a highly advanced loyalty product to complement its strengths in mobile payment. Management also sees the potential for Points4More to boost its deal flow as it is tendering for contracts that require mobile payment technology and will bring UMT into these deals.
Let the Payback begin
10 May 16
UMT is at an exciting time in its development. Germany’s largest loyalty scheme, Payback, has announced it will launch its UMT-powered mPay service in June. This should give rise to new platform maintenance and commission streams, and potentially new data analytics earnings arising from data crossing UMT’s platform. Helped by the reputational boost from the Payback launch and a promising new client pipeline, we see good prospects for UMT to bring a number of new customers on board in 2016-17 and generate significant earnings growth over the next two to three years.
Moving up a gear with Amex group contract
27 Jan 16
Courtesy of a deal with Amex subsidiary Payback, United Mobility Technology (UMT) is shortly to begin offering mobile payment services on a white-label basis across c 45% of Germany’s retail sector. Payback is by far Germany’s largest loyalty programme with 27.5 million users in Germany and 75 million worldwide. Of the former, seven million already use the Payback app and early adoption prospects should be boosted by plans for a heavily marketed launch. With PwC forecasting a 100%+ CAGR in the German mobile payment market to €1bn by 2020, UMT is set to become a fast-growing EU market leader.
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.
Photonics the star of the show
21 Mar 17
IQE’s diversification strategy delivered a 17% jump in adjusted profit before tax during FY16. Strong growth in photonics revenues was a key element of this improvement. This was boosted by a return to growth, albeit modest, in the wireless sector and weak sterling. We revise our FY17 estimates upwards to reflect the progress made on customer qualifications for photonics applications, and we introduce FY18 estimates.
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.
Foundations for growth
21 Mar 17
accesso have released strong FY2016 Results which are marginally ahead of our expectations, this also follows the recent trading update at which it upgraded profitability figures. This is an impressive performance considering that 2016 has been a year of investment, not to mention the challenging trading conditions experienced in key summer months. This places accesso well for continued expansion in a significant and expanding global market.
