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.
The Slide Rule
12 Jan 17
What is The Slide Rule? The Slide Rule has been designed to dramatically simplify the identification of the best companies in the UK small/mid-cap sector by making a quantitative assessment of the relative potential of each company. At its core, The Slide Rule aims to identify those companies that create genuine shareholder value through strong returns on capital and solid growth, but also present a value opportunity with the potential tailwind of earnings momentum. Companies are assessed within a Quality, Value, Growth and Momentum (QVGM) framework.
Retain forecasts for FY17E and FY18E
05 Oct 16
While LFL sales growth of 1.8% for the first 12 weeks of FY17 looked a little light, this was on the back of 2.8% growth in the prior period. H2 comps become easier to lap and Christmas bookings (festive trading comprises 15% of FY sales on average) are up 10% YoY.
The Monthly January 2017
09 Jan 17
Despite all the hullaballoo of the Brexit vote and the subsequent election of Donald Trump as the next US President, the UK stock market prospered last year, especially in the latter few months of 2016. The combination of a depreciating currency – making $ earnings more valuable in relative terms - and the Trump emphasis on infrastructure expenditure drove the stock market higher
A year of expansion
17 Jan 17
Final results are broadly in line with our revised forecasts on most headline levels in what proved to be a difficult year for the Group. That said, it has significantly increased room capacity, which is now +40% ahead at the time of the IPO (+14.5% yoy), which improves its competitive position and offering. We are maintaining our headline forecasts, and with the dividend expected to be held for the foreseeable future producing an 8.7% yield with a NAV in excess of 180p, we continue to believe there is strong long term value offered at present.
