1Spatial’s H124 results show robust revenue growth and continued improvement in the revenue mix, with recurring revenue growing by 24%. Investment in sales resource, inflationary pressures and FX compressed margins, but a strong pipeline for both renewals and SaaS products could drive revenues and margins in H2 and beyond. In particular, the market opportunity for both 1Streetworks and NG9-1-1 has the potential to be transformative. We have upgraded our revenue forecast but leave earnings largel

1Spatial’s AGM statement provides further support for our view that the company is establishing a good platform for scalable recurring revenue growth. 1Spatial has secured its first customer for its Next Generation 911 (NG 911) solution in the US and three customers for its SaaS 1Streetworks product (including an additional one since 19 June). The opportunity for both products is significant, in our view. Sales cycles continue to be somewhat protracted within the current macro-economic environm
1Spatial has won its first two contracts for 1Streetworks, the company’s SaaS-based Traffic Management Plan Automation product. This is an important development for the company in that the potential addressable market for this product is large; management estimates around £250m for low speed roads in the UK alone and 1Spatial looks well positioned to gain a significant market share. 1Streetworks also runs on the company’s newly launched cloud-based platform, representing an important milestone i
1Spatial’s full year results confirm the solid progress made over the course of the year with revenue growing 11%, recurring revenues growing 21% and EBITDA margins expanding from 15.5% to 16.7%. With momentum continuing into this year, and a healthy order book and pipeline, the company looks well set for 2024. Progress in its key strategic growth pillars – traffic management, US expansion and smart partnerships – looks promising and could accelerate scalable high-margin recurring revenue growth
1Spatial’s trading update confirms that trading has remained robust, with FY23 revenues and EBITDA expected to be no less than £29.8m (+10.3% y o-y) and £4.9m (+17% y-o-y) despite some inflationary pressure. The revenue mix continues to improve, with recurring revenues now c 50% (+c 22% y-o-y) of the total and term licences up c 80% to £5.2m. With momentum continuing into Q1, and a healthy order book and pipeline, the company looks well set to deliver further progress this year. Trials of the co
1Spatial has announced that Andy Fabian will be stepping down as CFO on 19 December, to be replaced by Stuart Ritchie, currently CFO at Fusion Global, an international provider of SaaS workflow software. Mr Fabian has played a key role in putting 1Spatial on a sound financial footing, rebuilding investor confidence in the business and developing the current growth strategy. With these foundations in place, this change is being made to help drive an acceleration in growth and transition to a SaaS

Following the news on Friday 1 December that Siemens has, subject to completion, disposed of its 11.2% holding in Sondrel at 6p per share, we see a significant buying opportunity. We believe the sale was for Siemens AG organisational convenience rather than in relation to Sondrel’s fundamentals. We have summarised the history of the relationship, our view on the rationale for the sale and touch on the latest industry outlook. We reiterate our 1-year price target of 74p which is just shy of the h

iomart has delivered interims to September in line with unchanged expectations, alongside a small vertical focused acquisition, demonstrating the benefit of organic and acquired growth. 18% group revenue growth included cloud services growth of 20%, which comprised modest organic growth, price adjustments after last year’s strong energy price movements, and some slowdown in organic non-recurring revenue, before the benefit of the Concepta (August 2022) and Extrinsica (June 2023) acquisitions, ad

Journeo has released a positive trading update following strong business activity in October and November. The company references strong trading in its core Fleet and Passenger Systems divisions, as well as the newly acquired Infotec and MultiQ divisions. We expect that the investment made in the Infotec factory to facilitate higher production speed has contributed to clearing the prior backlog and the ability to win new orders. We believe the positive trading momentum will continue into FY24E a

Concurrent Technologies has released a FY23 trading update stating revenues in the current year are expected to be ahead of market expectations. Strong order intake has continued throughout the year and the significant investment in product development undertaken to target design-in wins has brought new customers (especially large Defence sector prime contractors), larger average single order sizes, and an increasing diversification of end markets. So far this year, Concurrent Technologies has w

£23.3bn in enterprise value has been returned to AIM technology shareholders over the past six years in the form of 51 public to private takeouts, including 10 in 2023 alone with the takeovers of Smoove* and Tribal announced in early October. With UK valuations appearing cheap and looking more attractive to potential acquirers, we take a moment to reflect on the trends of corporate and private equity bidders targeting AIM-listed technology companies going back to 2017, through the uncertainties
