Investment summary

Headline revenue growth of 19% reflects a full half contribution of ID Scan and a pickup in organic growth to 12% across the year driven by the excellent performance from the higher margin international services. The mix effects of this growth resulted in EBIT of £17m, 4% ahead of our forecasts, and a 1.1pp improvement in the operating margin.

Industry outlook

Growth in internet trading, regulatory pressure and the need for money laundering, age and anti-fraud checks are behind growing interest in increasingly complex and comprehensive verification of personal data. The scope and financial impact of global fraud and cybercrime is growing. The requirement of organisations and governments to invest in technologies and compliance solutions to combat these issues should also increase to outpace this threat.
