N+1 Singer - Instem - Full year trading update
16 Jan 17
2016 results are expected to be in line with reduced expectations, but we are reassured that the delays to contracts are temporary and isolated issues. Elsewhere, the group has continued to dominate the emerging SEND market, securing the majority of both product and service revenues placed globally in 2016. This should provide a strong platform from which to deliver sustainable and profitable growth for years to come. We make no changes to our forecasts and look forward to more positive updates on the delayed contracts in due course.
2016 outturn as expected; SEND on track
16 Jan 17
Instem has published a short trading update for the year to December 2016. The outcome was in line with (and in some areas slightly ahead of) our expectations. The year was impacted by the slowdown in early phase Clinical, and a number of contracts being delayed into 2017, but strong performance in particular came from the SEND submit product range. We make no changes to our 2017 forecasts which should benefit both from the signing of the delayed contracts, and the ongoing (and growing) boost from adoption of the SEND standard.

Clinical slowdown offsets strength elsewhere
20 Dec 16
Instem recently confirmed that its Instem Clinical business continues to be impacted by a slowdown in the early-phase clinical market and, despite other areas of Instem performing well, that this shortfall will impact group financial performance for 2016. Management is addressing the challenging clinical market conditions, and continues to expect revenue growth and a return to profitability for the Clinical business unit in FY 2017E. The group has also announced a renegotiation of the earn out arrangements. We reduce FY 2016E forecasts, but leave FY 2017E unchanged.
N+1 Singer - Instem - Contract delays a temporary setback
21 Nov 16
Instem has indicated that a number of contracts in Clinical are likely to slip into FY17 and that FY16 results will be behind expectations. There is also some uncertainty over the timing of other licence sales and, as such, a range of outcomes is possible. Our revised forecasts effectively assume the worst case scenario. Importantly, we see these issues as short term timing issues, with the medium term outlook unchanged.
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.
Panmure Morning Note 18-01-2017
18 Jan 17
Blancco technology, a leading provider of data erasure solutions and mobile device diagnostics, has announced that its underlying profits are ahead of expectations. Organic sales growth remains strong, the group continues to win larger ticket orders and the mobile diagnostics is performing ahead of plan. Consequently, we are raising our FY17 PBT forecast from £8.0m to £8.3m.
N+1 Singer - NCC Group - Interims confirm underlying business sound
19 Jan 17
NCC’s interim results were largely flagged in the detailed trading update released in December. Group revenue increased 35% to £125.8 (organic growth +18%) and adj. EBITDA grew 15% to £21.3m. The group’s issues relating to contract losses/deferrals in the period were previously announced and are already included in our forecasts. The group has maintained its interim dividend at 1.5p, which we believe is an indication of the strong underlying business. Separately, NCC has announced that Paul Mitchell intends to step down as chairman in May ’17. We continue to believe that NCC remains a highly attractive asset in an area seeing strong structural growth and see the current share price weakness as an opportunity. We retain our Buy recommendation and 233p target price.

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 - dotDigital Group - Trading update
17 Jan 17
dotDigital issued a trading update for the six months ended 31 December 2016, indicating revenue growth up 17% y-o-y to £15.0m with EBITDA in line with market expectations and on track for the full year. Cash has grown to £18.9m. Revenue was slightly light of expectations owing to a slower start in the US but Q2 already showed improvement with a strong pipeline building. Our EBITDA and EPS forecasts are unchanged but revenues trimmed by 4% for both years. There is much activity in broadening avenues of growth in terms of new connectors, partnerships and geographical footprint and we remain positive of its prospects. Interim results will be released on Feb 21.
