Encouraging HY16 results
21 Sep 16
Mi-Pay has released an encouraging set of interim results this morning, leaving the company well positioned to meet FY16 forecasts that were updated at the time of the trading statement (3rd August). Benefits from investment made in previous periods are now being demonstrated in the company’s performance with improved margin dynamics, reduced administrative expenses and a healthy cash position. The company is well financed having sufficient cash resources to fund itself until FY19 (assuming an unlikely scenario of there being no improvement from current rate of cash burn) and is well positioned to deliver on its strategy of delivering outsourced online payment solutions to the mobile operators.

H1 Trading update
03 Aug 16

The group has seen improvements in gross margins and lower operating costs but somewhat disappointing revenue growth.

The Cybersecurity Rebellion: “No, I’m Spartacus!”
07 Jun 16
Steve “Woz” Wozniak, infamous co-founder of Apple, was the latest culprit to send shivers across the tech world by claiming Cybersecurity is the greatest threat the world has faced since the atom bomb. Mr Wozniak was alluding to the heightened sense of fear that recent high profile breaches have caused Cybersecurity to be put at the forefront of political, corporate and now it would appear, investor agendas. As the topic gains increasing awareness, it gives rise to a number of companies claiming to be a “thought leader” in the Cybersecurity space, holding the best IP and the best routes to market. With many companies singing from the same loss making hymn sheet it is making it ever difficult to spot the true “Spartacus” from the crowd.
Exceptional trading continues
08 Nov 16
Keywords has announced that the strong trading in localisation and audio services has continued into H216. In particular, the Synthesis business acquired in April continues to benefit from exceptionally strong trading. Full-year results are now expected to be materially ahead of consensus and we upgrade our FY16e EPS by 13%. Erring on the side of caution, we have not changed our FY17 estimates significantly. Nevertheless, we believe the company does have a platform to sustain double-digit earnings growth, and hence medium-/long-term prospects for further share appreciation remain good.
Panmure Morning Note 02-12-16
02 Dec 16
Today James Halstead will be holding its 101st AGM. Trading during the first part of FY17 has been mixed, with some notable challenges. However, movements in FX (i.e. weak sterling) is boosting reported earnings, offsetting UK volume trends and pricing pressures. Whilst earnings are likely to be second half weighted, the picture is in-line with expectations and we are leaving our FY17 PBT estimates unchanged (£47.4m in FY17 vs £45.4m FY16).

On 30 September 2016, when the company announced its full year results, it reported that the UK business had seen a slow start to the year, with particular weakness in repair and renewal spending by the NHS as well as “reticence” in the education sector. However, with the UK only representing about a third of the business, this weakness was expected to be more than offset by the positive effect of a weakened sterling on its overseas business, given the benefits for competitiveness and margins.

Acal’s H117 results reflected the weaker demand that was previously flagged combined with positive FX trends. Design & Manufacturing (D&M) continues to grow as a proportion of total revenues and profits and management has raised its targets for this part of the business. The company continues to consider further acquisitions, recently increasing its debt facility to support its growth strategy. The outlook for FY17 is unchanged – based on H117 order inflow, H217 is expected to be stronger and we leave our earnings forecasts substantially unchanged.
