Photocure announced Q3 sales of Hexvix/Cysview of NOK31.6m, which although a 17% increase year-on-year (13% in constant currency) represents a 7% sequential reduction in sales. This is largely attributable to seasonality although unit sales in Nordic countries were 14% lower as a result of salesforce staffing issues. US sales continue to be a growth driver with 10% sequential growth and 46% growth year-on-year.

Nordic sales bounce back
25 May 16
Photocure announced the second quarter of record sales, NOK33.5m or 18% growth year-on-year and 26% growth in Hexvix/Cysview sales. The growth was on the back of an increase of 20% in unit sales and 23% in revenue from the Nordic region, which marks a return to growth in the region following a slow (5% unit loss) Q415. Sales were further supported by a continued increase in US market share with a 37% increase in unit sales and a 66% increase in revenue.
A strong exit for 2015
07 Mar 16
Hexvix/Cysview sales grew 34% year-on-year for Q415, showing marked improvement over Q315 growth rates of 17%. The year closed with NOK115.8m in sales of Hexvix/Cysview, a 26% improvement over 2014, driven primarily by increased unit volume in the US but bolstered by a favourable currency exchange. Revenue growth for the quarter was in the double digits across all reported markets and the company ended the year with cash of NOK134m, which we see as more than sufficient to bring the company to profitability in 2018.

Both investment managers focus on the technology sector and they will be able to co-invest. Elderstreet has investments in a number of AIM-quoted companies through its VCTs.

This helps adds to two growth vectors RTHM is targeting; (i) adds unique exclusive audience (10m unique) and (ii) Exclusive demand Yahoo and Facebook. The business has 15 premium and owned and operated apps which provide users with rewards for activity. The business is expected to deliver c$9m of EBITDA in FY18 including $2m of cost synergies. This equates to just 4.7x EV/EBITDA. This marks what we see the first step in RTHM activity to scale the business and deliver on margin potential (see our initiation notes). Our initial estimates for EPS revisions are very significant - for FY18 are 2.3 cents (currently 0.6) and for FY19 4.3 (currently 2.5). There is a call at 830 for investors and we will revise post this.

We expect CareTech to report FY results to September on 8th December. A positive trading update in October indicated that performance for the year was in line with market expectations therefore we are focusing on the outlook. We expect a confident statement since the end of 2016 showed positive trends across fee rates, expansion in places and occupancy. We believe CareTech is well positioned for further expansion, and remains at an attractive valuation. We retain our BUY and 380p price target.

With FY16 volume and revenue already disclosed in the pre-close, the focus in today’s prelims is on PBT (£100.3m versus our £101m) and EPS (96.8p versus our 95.4p). No special dividend triggered this year (none forecast) and DPS is held at 46.8p (N1SE: 48.0p). On end markets, recent commentary is reiterated – the core business is growing, whilst consumer electronics will be subdued in the current year (competitive capacity from Solvay). On currency, there will be a material benefit in the current year (a little more than the £14m to £15m previously indicated), and a further tailwind next year if current rates are maintained (quantum TBC). There is also an investment of £10m today in a minority interest in Magma Global, Victrex’ oil and gas mega programme partner. Although the share price is now close to our TP of 1730p, we feel that there is enough in today’s announcement to retain a positive stance on medium term opportunities with strong cashflow and a special dividend potentially to look forward to in the current year.
