Advertising growth remains key
25 Aug 16
H116 group revenues were slightly ahead of the prior year in both US dollar and euro terms, helped by continued growth in artnet News, where revenues were up 17% despite weaker Q2 advertising performance. Reduced losses from Auctions and the benefit of lower costs within the Price Database segment helped drive an 11% uplift in group contribution margin, partially offset by increased central expenses. Stronger operating cash flow drove higher net cash, which at end June was €0.9m, from €0.5m at the year-end. Our FY16e and FY17e forecasts are unchanged.
A brush with success
18 Apr 16
Following a year of investment and reorientation in FY14, artnet had good success in FY15 in turning its Gallery segment back into growth and in building strong web traffic – and hence group advertising revenues – with artnet News. In US dollar terms, FY15 group revenues were up 4% y-o-y, with currency swelling this to a 24% rise in euro terms. This implies a strong Q4, following top-line reported growth of 1% for Q1-Q3. The shift in mix is helping gross margins and with stable operating costs in US dollars, artnet has marched forward into profitability, with further progress forecast for FY16 and FY17.
Art market online
19 Nov 15
artnet’s nine-month figures show revenues stable in US$, with the uplift in the € numbers reflecting currency movements. Good progress is being made in the reach of artnet News, driving traffic to all parts of the artnet website and increasing advertising revenues. The upcoming mobile app launch and Amazon co-operation should help continue momentum, lifting the top line and starting to deliver more meaningful returns, allowing the rating to move closer to online B2B and B2C operators and art businesses.
Gaining luxury advertisers
03 Sep 15
Q215 results showed good progress expressed in euros, with the currency translation restraining reported performance in US dollars. artnet News is becoming well established as a prime source of market information, with monthly unique visits averaging 1.3 million over the first six months. It is expected to become self-sustaining by the year end. The higher traffic is helping drive advertising revenues from vendors of luxury goods, lifting the performance of the Gallery segment in both revenue and margin. Costs in H115 have been kept well under control and full-year guidance remains consistent with our projections.

N+1 Singer - ScS Group - Strong progress on key growth initiatives albeit comps now toughen
21 Mar 17
Whilst interim results are complicated by timing differences around order deliveries (flattery of c£1.9m) and rephasing of marketing (drag of c£1.9m), adjusted EBITDA improved by c£1.7m on an underlying basis – moving ScS into positive territory in its historically loss-making first half. Good progress was made on all 4 growth strategies and it maintained its 5-star score on Trustpilot. Whilst LFL order intake is down c5-6% in current trading, this reflects weak retail park footfall in Feb (not a conversion issue) and it has seen an improvement since the start of March. This means it is on track to meet FY expectations. Reassuring dynamics on margins & costs may add to investor relief, with the shares on <2x EV/EBITDA.

N+1 Singer - Goals Soccer Centres - Good momentum under new team. It’s now all about delivery
21 Mar 17
2016 finals have come in marginally below consensus PBT forecasts but this should not detract from positive operational and strategic momentum. There is still much work to do, but the tenor of the results is encouraging and management signals a good start to FY17. The main surprise is news of a third USA site opening. We tweak our FY17/18 PBT forecast up by 2% and stay at Buy on recovery grounds with a 140p 12m TP.
