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.
Taking a prudent road
28 Nov 16
As flagged in September, H1 2017 profit is indeed below LY; adj. PBT of £0.5m compares with £1.5m in H1 2016 as Trakm8 invests heavily in new technology and acquisition integration. Management remains confident in another very strong H2 performance and in particular is focused on closing a couple of large high-margin software-related sales which would see the group meeting the original FY 2017 expectations of £5.9m adj. PBT. However, should these fall outside the March year-end, profits are only likely to be in line with last year’s £3.9m, albeit on a growing revenue base. Prudence dictates we assume a worst-case scenario in our forecasts so that surprise is only in the upside – if the deals close in the year, the company will meet those original revenue and profit expectations.

Sanderson has delivered full year results in line with expectations and the 19 October trading update after a strong finish to the year compensated for a slower start. A healthy level of pre-contracted recurring revenue (50%), incremental sales to existing customers and new customer wins at higher average order values helped deliver solid revenue growth in both the Digital Retail (+9%) and Enterprise (+12%) divisions. A decent order book and good sales momentum suggest that the company is on track to deliver on unchanged profit expectations for the current year. We continue to view the valuation (FY17 EV/EBITDA 8.6x) as undemanding given an attractive combination of accelerating growth potential, strong cash generation and growing dividends.
Deal beefs up media & broadcast operations
28 Nov 16
SCISYS is acquiring Germany-based ANNOVA Systems for an estimated deal value of £15.3m. ANNOVA is a leading supplier of software-based editorial solutions to the media sector. It has a track record of generating strong revenue growth and in 2015 won a landmark contract with the BBC, which underpins financial forecasts for 12 years. ANNOVA complements SCISYS’s dira! product offering for radio broadcasters, extends the group’s capabilities into television and creates cross-selling opportunities. The deal significantly boosts earnings, aided by cheap debt financing costs, and is value enhancing on our assumptions. Consequently, we believe the stock continues to look attractive on c 10x our FY17e earnings.

Vp has reported another impressive set of interims, confirming strong growth in most markets and a positive outlook. Recent acquisitions are bedding in well and the full year outturn is set to exceed previous expectations (5%/6% EPS upgrades in FY17/FY18). The recent Capital Markets Day provided a reminder of Vp’s qualities (specialist focus, high returns, strong cash generation) and its growth potential, which in our view are not reflected in a modest <11x P/E rating. We firmly believe the shares are due a re-rating and see intrinsic value in excess of 800p.
