IFIS is generating balance sheet growth across many businesses including core trade receivable financing (with initiatives in pharmaceuticals and multi-utilities) and distressed retail loans. Despite this growth, capital ratios remain exemplary. In 2016 and beyond, this loan growth should deliver underlying, sustainable profit growth. Credit remains excellent. Our forecast 2016 PBT and EPS are largely unchanged.
Core businesses continue strong growth
03 Nov 15
The group’s strategy to replace bond profits with flows from sustainable business operations continues to be delivered, broadly speaking. Strong growth in the core trade receivables business and in the distressed loans operation meant the group net profit from financial activities fell just €2m to €57m (Q315 vs Q314) despite a €13m reduction in bond portfolio contribution. The bond portfolio contributed less than 10% of group’s net profit from financial activities (Q314 33%). Costs were well controlled.
Positioned for strong growth
06 Aug 15
The key development in Q215 was the already announced crystallisation of the bond portfolio profits, generating a pre-tax gain of €124m. This realised gain is now in regulatory capital. The core business continued to show good growth, especially in the distressed loans and tax receivables units (revenue growth was 9%), and credit quality remained excellent. Further investment has been made to grow existing and new business lines.
Expanding new business streams
25 Jun 15
In the past week Banca IFIS has made two announcements that reinforce confidence in our expected profit growth. On 23 June it announced the acquisition of three NPL portfolios with a total nominal value of €883m, increasing the number of customers by c 100k (to 900k). On 17 June it announced an expansion into the niche pharmacy market. IFIS has strong capital and liquidity and can exploit market opportunities to grow.
Another positive verdict

Burford’s results for 2016 produced another outstanding set of figures. Revenue grew by 60% to $163.4m with strong growth in the litigation finance business and an additional boost from a secondary sale in the Petersen case. On an underlying basis net income grew to $114m, a 75% increase despite the investment in growing capacity which increased costs. A combination of ongoing investment and gains and increases on valuation saw the fair value of the litigation assets increase 67% to $559m, underpinned by a growth in invested capital to $394m. With the results statement there was an announcement of a further sale of 9% of the Petersen case at a valuation of 20 times the cost of investment.

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.
