Investment summary

Brady’s H1 results reveal the initial impact of the group’s transformation. While revenues slipped, reflecting the planned shift to software rental, recurring revenue rose to 68% of total revenues, up from 60% a year earlier. The move into microservices is gaining traction, with three proof of concept trials taking place in H2. Four new licences were sold in H1, all on a rental format, of which three are hosted. With nearly four months remaining in FY17, the group has 93% of revenue in the bag, including several software renewals and services business. Given the attractive long-term growth opportunities in the E/CTRM space, we believe the shares look attractive on 14x our maintained cash-adjusted FY19 EPS.

Industry outlook

Brady provides trading, risk and connectivity software solutions to the global commodity, recycling and energy markets – mining and oil companies, fabricators, traders, banks, etc. Key operational drivers are that the target market is underinvested in IT, auditors and regulators are seeking increased reporting and accountability, and fundamental changes such as electronic trading and the EEGI.
