Following continued delays of a Brexit agreement, few sectors within the UK market have remained attractive to investors despite low valuations. One sector which has continued to outperform despite the political drama has been the UK video gaming sector (henceforth UK gaming), which we are fans of. We believe a combination of sector-leading growth, strong cash conversion and timely cyclical positioning support our positive view on the UK video gaming sector.

Bigblu Broadband (BBB) has reported a strong set of FY19 results that demonstrate strong organic growth, and are in line to ahead of the previous consensus estimates. This establishes a strong foundation for BBB’s future growth, and we expect that BBB will see revenue, EBITDA, and EPS growth in FY20 and FY21 despite the uncertainty caused by Coronavirus. This reflects that BBB has a robust and resilient investment case, which we explain in depth in this report. We consequently believe that BBB is undervalued on 12m fwd multiples of 5x EV/EBITDA and 7x adj P/E, and initiate with a TP of 155p or 15x FY21 adj EPS.

An expected resilience to the COVID-19 negative impacts in Q1. The group can indeed congratulate itself on having strengthened in recent years its fixed activities: in Germany, which represents 40% of Vodafone’s activities in Europe, service revenues were flat yoy in Q1.
The monetisation of its infrastructure assets is continuing and, given the slight growth that the group could offer in the coming years, we maintain our Buy on the stock.

A poor Q2 performance for Telefonica although this had been expected given, in particular, the double penalty linked to the South American currency weakness vs the Euro (in particular the Brazilain Real) during the pandemic.
For 2020 Telefónica nonetheless remains on track to deliver a slightly negative to flat EBITDA-capex yoy in organic terms but… at constant currency. The key point thus remains that the 2020 dividend is confirmed at €0.40.

Pebble Beach Systems has reported interims to June 2020, reflective of the global challenges posed by COVID-19. Revenue declined 20% to £4.5m (1H19: £5.6m) as prospective customers cautiously delayed large-scale broadcast infrastructure projects in the immediate term. This masked robust performance in SLA contract renewals, increasing to 42% of group revenue from 31% YoY (£1.9m; 1H19: £1.9m), delivering a greater proportion of recurring business during the period. Whilst cognisant of the potential impacts of COVID in H2, the board remains focused on maintaining its market-leading position through ongoing innovation, and optimising the business through leveraging cost efficiencies and de-gearing the debt balance. The group enters H2 with a strong order backlog (£4.1m) and a growing pipeline, underpinned by recurring SLA renewals, leaving the board confident on the outlook for FY20.

Today’s results for YE March 2020, are somewhat historic having been flagged by the trading update back in April. However, they do reflect the impact that COVID-19 has had on international business, as well as actions SRT has taken to secure its future. Lockdowns put a hold on existing and new system projects, causing a delay in both revenues and expected contract signings during the final months of FY 2020 through H1 2021. Also, we highlight that SRT has prudently impaired an existing long-standing contract for a monitoring system in the Middle East to clear the decks for a new larger contract that includes both monitoring system and transceivers. Existing Systems contracts are again under way, with £8.5m received on deliveries, and negotiations have restarted on the expected new contracts. Meanwhile, the Transceivers business grew by 24% in the FY 2020, and surprisingly, is reported to be trading marginally ahead of last year in FY 2021 to date despite COVID restrictions.

Gamma has delivered this morning another strong set of results for H1 to June. Despite the COVID-19 challenges, the business has grown organically, and the acquisition programme is delivering well on its promise of European expansion. The group is positioned well to build revenues on and around Microsoft Teams, which is clearly benefiting from the work-from-home trend. We raise our profit estimates for all three forecast years as a sign of confidence in ongoing growth and look forward to further strong performance (and potentially even further M&A) into H2 and beyond.

Iliad announced this morning it has agreed to buy Polish telco Play for €2.2bn. This operation seems fundamentally relevant for a group which wants to diversify outside France by seeking growth in Europe and the price paid is indeed correct. However, this acquisition will lead to a net debt of €10.4bn for Iliad (corresponding to 3.5x annual EBITDA) which could penalise it on the stock market.
We maintain our opinion at Reduce with a slight 8% downside.
