One-off coverage increase on UK and US credit card portfolios
27 Oct 16
The reported quarterly performance was impacted by a one-off provision charge on UK and US credit card portfolios. The additional PPI-related provision was offset by the gain on the sale of Barclays Analytics and Index Solutions. The core division has continued to enjoy good revenue momentum and efficiency gains while the run-off of the non-core division has remained on track with the objective to close it in 2017.
Chosen final destination; ticket price uncertain
30 Mar 16
The group’s refocusing on the UK and the US has been strengthened further with the enlargement of the non-core assets to be divested and the decision to deconsolidate Africa. The investment bank still has room to improve its profitability further through ongoing efficiency gains and better capital usage. The visibility on the residual value adjustments required to run-down non-core assets has increased. The uncertainty surrounding future litigation charges now mostly concerns the settlement of the US RMBS inquiry. The temporary dividend cut decision seems to be partly motivated by pending extra management actions to reduce both operating and funding costs to bolster future profitability potential.
Don’t mess with IBK
09 Jul 15
Anthony Jenkins was fired on Wednesday after three years as CEO. The market reaction speaks for itself: the share price was up by 4% intraday before closing up 2%. According to the FT, Jenkins’ removal could result from a conflict with Tom King, the head of the IBK division. John McFarlane, the bank’s Chairman, will be the interim CEO until a new CEO is found, maybe the CFO.
Making Mobiles Better

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.

N+1 Singer - Harwood Wealth - FY16 EBITDA 11% ahead, positive strategic progress
24 Jan 17
Harwood Wealth (“HW”) has delivered final results which showed EBITDA 11% ahead of our forecasts and successful execution of the consolidation strategy with 17 acquisitions in FY16 using IPO proceeds. The board has declared a maiden final dividend of 2p (payable in May) from cash generation. £10.5m net cash leaves the business well positioned to continue to pursue acquisition opportunities. Based on previous multiples paid, we estimate HW has cash resources to materially increase EBITDA complemented by organic growth. HW reports a positive start to FY17e.
N+1 Singer - Northern lights - Shining prospects for 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.
