One Media iP (OMiP) has released a solid set of H1/21A interim results, with revenue up 8.5% YoY in USD terms. The company has been active on the acquisition front, having deployed £4m of capital so far in FY21E (mostly post period end), and the pipeline remains strong. OMiP has a highly scalable platform, which should result in steadily improving margins as the group adds new royalty streams to its portfolio, and remains well-placed to benefit from the structural growth underway in the music in

One Media has released strong FY20A results, with Adj EBITDA up c28% to £1.6m, comfortably beating our forecasts (FY20E £1.3m), boosted by strong consumer demand on streaming platforms. Whilst COVID-19 has meant a slight delay to the closure of acquisitions, the pipeline remains strong, and we expect a number of deals to complete in H2/21E. We release new forecasts for FY22E (Adj EBITDA £2.2m), with growth driven by further increases in demand for streaming, new service offerings (eg TCAT), and

This is testament to its cash generative recurring revenue model (c85%) and the resilience of the market it operates in.

We expect the Group's financial performance to continue to outperform the wider market. Buy
The current COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a global lockdown of billions of people. Corollary to this, there has been an increase in internet usage and consumer demand for streaming platforms globally. Two music genres that One Media is particularly strong in, children's and classical, have seen demand increase. We expect One Media's short-term financial performance to remain intact as the uptick in home consumption should outweigh the decline in other areas such as commuting. We reiterate ou

Next’s share jumped 9% on the back of the impressive Q2 21 performance. The encouraging improvement in retail sales as a result of gradually eased social restrictions in the UK alongside the continued strong momentum in online sales have led the group to finish the quarter with 18.6% sales growth vs. the same period in 2019 (vs. guidance of 3% previously).

Unprecedented times over the past 12 months have seen ScS Group deliver an exceptional set of H1 2021 results, dominated by the surge in orders post Lockdown 1.0.

What a difference a year makes - 12 months ago, the focus, quite understandably, was on the course of the pandemic and the lifting of the Lockdown (1) measures. For investors, it was the sustainability of the rally in markets seen since March 2020. Today, while we are still thinking about the lifting of lockdown measures, we are also concerned about two “old favourites” from previous decades. Inflation and the parlous state of public finances. The BoE has said that although CPI inflation rose to

These are digital sales trends, electrification, the agency model, vehicle supply, and the economic outlook.
