Interims ahead, well placed for the full-year
18 Jan 17
A good set of interims disclose a near doubling of 1H17 adj. PBT to £0.9m, with results also ahead of upgraded expectations, following November’s interim trading update. Key metrics such as online sales growth, profit margin, and FCF all continued their upward trend and with 66% of unchanged FY17E PBT already delivered in H1, BOTB is well positioned to continue growing and meet our full-year numbers. We upgrade our target price to 338p, based on a target FCF yield of 4%.
Joy of Techs
21 Nov 16
ICT evolution is driven by technological development as advances are made which both meet and shape customer requirements. Our 2011 note No such thing as a telco described the modern reality in that former ‘telcos’ now deliver varying elements of a range of managed services. We built on this theme last year, exploring in further detail their evolutionary paths, operating fundamentals, and cashflow yield similarities. In the consumer environment, demand for bundles of technology is complemented by demand for content. Across the pond, the mooted combination of AT&T and Time Warner typifies the bundled need of ‘pipe’ and content, since unbundled alternatives such as FaceTime and WhatsApp can be easier and clearer to chat over, and Amazon and Netflix are easier to watch anywhere. In the UK, BT’s defensive actions cover delivery, content and capabilities, acquiring EE yet also buying football rights. While TV was long ago added to triple play to become quad play, voice is now merely an app, and fixed and mobile seen as just dumb pipes: it's the content that will influence consumer choices. Growth of TV and film as well as music and gaming over IP leads to UK small cap opportunities. In context of the drive to maximise value from pipes and access by offering content and data, we look at some amongst the potential tech small cap beneficiaries: Amino*, Keyword Studios, ZOO Digital*, 7digital*, KCOM* and CityFibre*.

Strong final results
20 Apr 17
The group has reshaped its business over the past two years, strengthening management and operational infrastructure, increasing capacity and reviewing strategic emphasis. We anticipate a progressive revaluation given the potential growth profile in an addressable and fragmented international market. Our 2017 forecasts remain unchanged following the results which imply EBITDA growth of 26%, and we raise our target price to 6p, implying potential share price upside of 23%.
