Rationalisation of the network is paying off
27 Oct 16
Quite a good Q3 for KPN: even if revenues, down by 3% yoy, are still suffering from the decline in the business market size (consumer revenues grew by 1.5% yoy), the EBITDA was good (growing by 3.4% yoy as it was down by 4.5% in Q1 and by 1.7% in Q2) driven by customer base growth and the positive impact of cost savings.
Consolidating its market shares on the consumer side
27 Jul 16
Although Q1 revenues had decreased by 2.6% yoy while the EBITDA had declined slightly more by 4.5%, it was the opposite in Q2 with revenues down more than expected by 4.3% yoy but a better EBITDA down by only 1.7%. Once again, growing Consumer revenues were offset by the impact of the ongoing decline in the size of the business market. So, as in the two previous quarters, a mixed release.
Q1 in line with expectations
02 May 16
Q1 16 revenues declined by 2.6% yoy (excluding the contact centre business SNT Deutschland which was sold in Q1). Once again growing Consumer revenues were offset by the impact of the ongoing decline in size of the business market and lower revenues at iBasis. The EBITDA decreased by 4.5% yoy but this is due to temporarily higher IT-related costs in network and operations in the run-up to IT rationalisation. Note also an impairment charge related to iBasis for €45m. KPN intends to pay a regular dividend of €10 cents in respect of 2016 and grow the dividend in line with its free cash flow growth profile thereafter. KPN will distribute €1.2bn of the combined proceeds from the sale of BASE to Telenet and c.5% Telefónica Deutschland shares to its shareholders in the form of a capital repayment of €28 cents per share. KPN expects to execute the capital repayment in June 2016. The remaining 15.5% stake in Telefónica Deutschland is treated as a financial investment and KPN still intends to distribute the expected Telefónica Deutschland dividend over 2015 (€110m) to its shareholders in the form of a special interim dividend distribution of €2.5 cents per share (the payment date is 27 May 2016).
A mixed release
03 Feb 16
Q4 2015 revenues declined by 5.9% yoy (adjusted with a tax settlement benefit of €44m in Q4 2014). Growing Consumer revenues were offset by the impact of the ongoing decline of the business market size and lower revenues at iBasis. The EBITDA decreased however by only 0.7% yoy in Q4 2015 (without the tax settlement benefit in Q4 2014). These results are quite disappointing compared to the previous Q3 where revenues were down by only 2.6% yoy (vs -3.5% in H1) thanks to 3.7% growth on the consumer side, while the EBITDA grew by 4.6% (vs. less than +1% in H1).
Making Mobiles Better
17 Jan 17
Mobile phones are increasingly the key connection for the modern world. This means that the performance of mobile phones, and their networks, is going to become more critical for all the apps and businesses that rely on them. New technologies such as VR, AR, and AV will need better, more reliable connections to really move into the mainstream. In this thematic piece we attempt to identify some of the most important issues facing mobile phone networks and their users, and start to identify solutions and enablers that will solve these problems and create value by doing so.
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.

N+1 Singer - Morning Song 16-01-2017
16 Jan 17
As the birthplace of Stephenson, Armstrong and Swan, the North East of England has a proud history of industrial and technological innovation. Despite local economic challenges, the region’s industrial heritage lives on through continuing success in high end engineering and technology. The recent takeovers of private equity backed SMD (subsea robotics) and Nomad Digital (wi-fi on the railways) are testament to this. The North East has also emerged as a leader in genetics and genomics with an enviable life sciences and healthcare infrastructure. Against this backdrop, we expect the region to continue to throw up attractive IPO candidates to build on the six new listings in the past three years. We expect 2017 to be far kinder to the existing portfolio of North East plcs than 2016 (a year to forget) with recent management changes one important theme for the new year. Our top picks are Hargreaves Services, Quantum Pharma and Zytronic (all N+1 Singer Corporate clients) and we are Buyers of Northgate and Grainger.
The Cybersecurity Rebellion: “No, I’m Spartacus!”
07 Jun 16
Steve “Woz” Wozniak, infamous co-founder of Apple, was the latest culprit to send shivers across the tech world by claiming Cybersecurity is the greatest threat the world has faced since the atom bomb. Mr Wozniak was alluding to the heightened sense of fear that recent high profile breaches have caused Cybersecurity to be put at the forefront of political, corporate and now it would appear, investor agendas. As the topic gains increasing awareness, it gives rise to a number of companies claiming to be a “thought leader” in the Cybersecurity space, holding the best IP and the best routes to market. With many companies singing from the same loss making hymn sheet it is making it ever difficult to spot the true “Spartacus” from the crowd.
Small Cap 2017 - The only certainty is uncertainty
18 Jan 17
AIM will turn twenty-two this June and it is fair to say it has had its fair share of ups and downs, with 2016 being a case in point. We ask what will the rest of 2017 hold in store? Arguably the US dollar, Brexit, bonds, and banks will be the four big themes for the new year.
