Robust organic growth despite sluggish consumer business

  • 28 Jul 16

Experian reported Q1 FY17 results (three months ending 30 June 2016) broadly in line with our estimates. The lfl sales increased by 5% (vs Q4 16: +6%, Q3 16: +6%; our estimate: +4.8%), largely driven by robust growth in credit services (+8% yoy) and the decision analytics business (+6% yoy). In North America (Q1 17: +5% vs Q4 16: +6%, Q3 16: +6%; our estimates: +4.7%), robust demand from automotive and healthcare clients underpinned the growth in credit services business (Q1 17: +11% vs Q4 16: +12%; Q3 16: +11%, our estimate: +8%). The consumer services business clocked organic growth of 1% (vs Q4 16: +1%; Q3 16: +3%, our estimate: +3%) as the company monetised free traffic (accumulated 4.5 million members since the launch of the free site a year ago) through the cross-selling of membership products and lead generation. Despite ongoing macro-economic headwinds, the LatAm business delivered another strong performance (Q1 17: 8% vs Q4 16: 7.8%, Q3 16: +7%; our estimate: +4.9%) on the back of growth in delinquency notification products and deeper client penetration. Additionally, the company launched the consumer services business in Brazil in July 2016. Organic growth slumped to 1% in the UK (vs Q4 16: +6.5%, Q3 16: +4%; our estimate: +3.9%), pulled down by the sequential slowdown in the consumer services business (-1% yoy; undergoing business transition) and a strong comparative in the decision analytics business (Q1 17: -2% vs Q1 16: +15%). In EMEA/ Asia Pacific, new business wins in decision analytics (+27% yoy) and good demand for cross-channel marketing and data quality services in the marketing business (+11% yoy) resulted in revenue growth of 9% on a lfl basis (Q4 16: +10%, Q3 16: +7%; our estimate: +6.7%). Strong FX headwinds (weak GBP and Brazilian real vs the USD) led the total revenue up 1% (FY 16: -4%, Q3 16: -3%, H1 16: -6%, our estimate: 2.3%). Furthermore, Experian announced the acquisition of CSIdentity Corp., a consumer identity management and fraud detection services provider in the US for $360m (annualised revenue of $103m and $21m EBIT in the year ending March 2016). The acquired entity will be aligned to Experian’s ‘Consumer Services’ business. The company plans to spend $400m on a share repurchase programme in FY17 (vs $592m in FY16). Lastly, management reiterated FY17 guidance of mid-single-digit organic revenue growth and stable margins at constant rates (c. 1% headwind to EBIT, if current exchange rates prevail).

Breakfast Today

  • 15 Jul 16

"The devastating incident that took place in Nice late yesterday, sadly bearing all the hallmarks of terrorism, will likely keep European markets in the red today. The FTSE-100 is seen opening down around 35 points. London equity investors will also reflect further on the Bank of England surprisingly keeping its benchmark lending rate unchanged at 0.5%, when investors had been expecting to policy loosening by 25bp. With the Governor, Mark Carney, continuing to warn of postBrexit UK entering a phase of slower growth, however, the MPC is now expected simply to gathered more evidence before taking the inevitable step in August. US equity indices were stronger across the board yesterday, as financials took confidence from J.P. Morgan Chase's strong half-year results while the Fed's James Bullard suggested there was now no rush to push rates higher, pointing at a preferred 'wait-and-see' approach in his various press comments. Asian shares also continued to move positively with the Nikkei again leading the way, taking its weekly gain to almost 10%, the largest such rise since December 2009, driven once again by Nintendo but also by messaging-app operator, Line, which surged sharply upward on its Tokyo debut. The Shanghai Composite also celebrated release of economic data showing better than expected Q2'16 growth in response to massive stimulus provided since the start of the year, although it had given all its early gains back by the close. Macro data due for release today includes UK Construction Output figures and Trade and Inflation data from the EU. The US is scheduled to provide a plethora of important statistics, including Retail Sales, Industrial Production and Inflation data; the Fed's Kashkari is also expected to be the latest to muse on US rate and growth expectations. No major UK corporates are due to release trading updates or results today, although investors will be listening intently for any further statements from BP regarding costs for the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster which, post-yesterday's market close, it indicated will rise a further US$5.2bn, taking the total cost to almost US$62bn, in order to bring the event to a final close." - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

Stronger Fx headwinds continue to eat strong organic growth

  • 21 Jan 16

Experian posted better-than-expected results in its Q3 FY16 trading update, generating an organic revenue growth of 6% (vs. 4% in H1 FY16), but currency headwinds totally wiped out this growth as reported sales declined by 3%. All the sales growth numbers are organic unless specified otherwise. Both Credit Services and Decision Analytics clocked 8% growth, while Marketing Services and Consumer Services grew at a meagre 2%. In North America (+6% vs +1% in H1), robust business in healthcare and automotive verticals, and consumer credit activity underpinned the growth in Credit Services (+11% vs +8% in H1), while a one-off on-boarding of a large client led to 3% (vs. -7% in H1) growth in the Consumer Services segment. Decision Analytics, however, declined by 2% (vs +2% in H1). Despite macro-economic headwinds in Latin America (+7% vs +6% in H1), all segments experienced strong upwards momentum. Credit Services (+7% vs. 7% in H1) was driven by an increased contribution from delinquency notifications linked to non-performing loans in Brazil. As the new software implementations across the region fuelled 5% growth in Decision Analytics (vs 9% in H1), an increase in cross-channel marketing led to 4% growth in Marketing Services (vs -19% in H1). The UK grew at a slower pace (+4% vs 5% in H1), pulled down by Decision Analytics (+8% vs +12% in H1) and Consumer Services (+2% vs 5% in H1). It is increasingly facing competition from Equifax (ClearScore) and Callcredit (Noddle). EMEA/Asia Pacific (c.10% of total revenue) was up by 7% (vs +6% in H1), driven by fraud and identity services in Decision Analytics (+23% vs +19% in H1), and new client wins and enhanced cross-channel marketing in Marketing Services (+10 vs +8% in H1 FY16). Management reaffirmed its full year guidance of mid-single-digit organic revenue growth and an 11% FX impact at EBIT level (if current rates prevail).
