Intel’s share price rose 7% on Friday, driving the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index to all-time highs. Intel’ stellar quarter was supplemented by improved guidance and bullish commentary from the management on the strength of demand from cloud service providers, underscoring the theme of an ‘insatiable demand for data’. The semiconductor cycle appears to be back, in spite of recent warnings from TI.

The H1 results are as announced in the October update; COVID delayed several new contracts until earlier this month, leaving H1 revenue at £5.1m. However, management remained comfortable with a FY sales forecast of £21.7m on the basis of a strong pipeline and the substantial tranche of annually renewed revenue billed each H2. Reassuringly, the new contracts have now been signed for both the Celebrus Customer Data Management (CDM) solution and the Celebrus Customer Data Platform (CDP), and they cover a range of verticals from financial services to automotive manufacture and ecommerce provision. With significant net cash, D4t4 is in a strong position for long-term sustainable growth on the back of rapidly growing global demand for CDP/CDM. It remains confident on prospects in new geographies (N America and APAC) and new use markets (fraud, risk analysis and healthcare) plus a high level of recurring revenue. Our forecasts and target price remain unchanged save for a tweak to cashflow and raised dividend expectation. We reiterate our 310p target price.

IQE has announced that the strong performance in H120, which resulted in record first-half revenue, has continued into the second half. It has updated FY20 revenue guidance from at least £165m to over £170m, with adjusted EBIT guidance remaining at the mid-single-digit million level. We have updated our FY20 and FY21 forecasts accordingly, giving adjusted PBT upgrades of 34% and 10% for FY20 and FY21 respectively.

Interims, in line with the October trading update and unchanged forecasts, follow a second (November) purchase order from the new US Department of State contract, highlighting momentum. The 5Cs that form management’s measure of strategic development have all generated positives: colleagues, with employee NPS rising, and no furloughs or paycuts; new & renewing customers, high-profile names and sectors; a broadening channel including generating new clients; code increasing with the addition of FIDO and increased reach through MyID Enterprise/ MyID Professional; and cash of £8.1m with £4.8m debt all in the form of in-the-money December 2021 convertibles. Strong 1H performance and cashflow derisks full-year expectations. Target raised to 125p (100p).

LoopUp has announced a very strong H1 period, in line with the previous trading update and reflecting a number of months of exceptional performance. This is allowing the business to invest in the major identified new opportunity, to provide telephony within Microsoft Teams, where the early signs are extremely positive. We look forward to further detail on the Teams pipeline and sales levels over time.

Eckoh’s fast growing US SecPay business and robust UK business model have minimised the impact of lockdowns with u/l H1 revs down just 3% yoy and profits flat. ECK reintroduces FY21 guidance, expecting H2 revenues comparable to H1 and FY21 AOP comparable to FY20. US SecPay is now a meaningful >30% group revs, growing 80% in H1 and with larger customers now re-engaging. We expect growth to continue in FY21 and beyond; the opportunity is multiples of current sales (FY21E $13m- +60% yoy). We similarly expect the cash cow UK business to continue to recover and return to c. 5% secular organic growth over time. It is especially continued success with US SecPay that is likely to lead to group FCF exceeding that of £5-6m achieved in FY20/19 over time and a FCF yield well above 5%. That’s attractive.

Earnings in H1A were better than flat and H2E has got off to a good start. Margins are up and so too is recurring revenue as proportion of total business. First half order deferrals are now materialising and renewals are positive. Free cash generation was strong and the outlook is positive. We see no fundamental reason for the recent share price underperformance and we reiterate our Buy recommendation.

After a challenging 2H21 for the events and traffic data business, Tracsis has delivered FY results to July in line with the reassuring August trading update. With £48m (FY19: £49.2m) revenue, the group has quantified an estimated £10m set back to COVID-affected activities within the Traffic & Data Services (T&DS) Division, implying underlying outperformance compared with expectations for the higher-margin Rail Technology & Services (RT&S) Division. Forecasts describe prospects: continuing growth in FY21 and FY22 for RT&S, with two major contracts identified in latter stage of negotiation; and a still hampered FY21 for events and traffic surveys within T&DS – but forecasts for FY22 show a return to an ex-COVID environment, regaining the original growth path. With £17.9m of cash (no debt) and delivering multiple fundamental elements of the UK rail ecosystem, Tracsis has weathered the storm better than expected, with organic and acquired growth prospects as strong as ever. Target 900p reiterated.

The Panoply has reported very robust interim results and we upgrade our FY21 PBT/EPS estimates by +5%/+10%. Revenues leapt +58% to £21.2m with LFL growth of +18% (Q1 +10%, Q2 +26%). EBITDA more than doubled to £2.9m, with LFL growth of +37%. Cash conversion was strong and the group has declared a maiden interim dividend of 0.2p. The group had a strong sales backlog of £17.5m at 1st October and we are pleased to note that it is increasingly winning large, multi-disciplinary contracts notably Bloomberg Philanthropies, Land Registry and Planning Inspectorate. These contracts would have beyond the capabilities of the individual businesses before they joined The Panoply and therefore in our view securing these £4m+ contracts vindicates the group strategy. We raise our PBT forecast by +5% to £4.9m (£4.7m). On a maximum deferred consideration basis, EPS is 5.1p (4.8p) while assuming shares are issued at 150p rather than our previous assumption of 120p gives EPS of 6.4p (5.8p). We have re-run our sensitivity analysis using the current share price of 200p and this indicates PF EPS of 10p could be delivered in 2023. We raise our target price to 220p (was 180p) and retain our Buy recommendation.

Following Fonix successfully raising £45m through an oversubscribed IPO on 12 October, we initiate our coverage with a target price of 150p. The investment case is focused upon Fonix leveraging its proprietary, cloud-based platform to expand with existing clients and win new clients within a robust UK phone-paid services market. The structural strength of Fonix’s platform is demonstrated by Fonix experiencing no churn from major customers in the past six years, which reflects that Fonix benefits from strategic integration and strong relationships with its clients. Fonix’s FY20 gross profit and EBITDA grew by +22% and +36% respectively, and we conservatively forecast +11-12% EBITDA and EPS growth in FY21 and FY22. On 12m forward EV/EBITDA of 10x and an EFCF yield of 7%, Fonix looks considerably undervalued compared to AIM payment and finnCap Tech 40 peers that are trading on 12m fwd EV/EBITDA of 17-20x with 7-17% EBITDA growth, and EFCF yields of 1-3%. We base our 150p target price on 15x FY22 EV/EBITDA or a 5% FY22 EFCF yield, and look forward to Fonix’s trading update in early 2021.

Mirriad Advertising’s H120 numbers show strong top-line progress, up 109% on H119 and 26% ahead of H219. H120 revenues were up over 185% year-on-year in China and Singapore, with market confidence rebuilding. There are very promising new agreements in place with US media owners, with early moves in large adjacent markets, such as music video. There are advanced negotiations ongoing with Tier 1 entertainment platforms. These prospects significantly increase the attraction of Mirriad’s proposition to advertisers. Cash burn is now under £1m per month, with end-August cash of £13.3m (no debt). Market forecasts for FY20–22 are unchanged.

Nanoco has secured just under £1m grant funding for a life sciences project to develop a heavy metal-free quantum dot testing kit to detect COVID-19. The project will last 18 months and represents a potential third segment for generating future revenues in addition to established activities in sensing and display applications. We make minor adjustments to our estimates, although there is no impact on EBITDA or cash flow.
