Investment summary

The year-on-year doubling of EBITA in H118 reflects continued strong underlying organic growth at GB Group (GBG), boosted by recent acquisitions and a perpetual licence deal. H2 has started well and forecasts, which are largely unchanged, appear comfortably underpinned. GBG’s consistent organic performance and increasing product innovation support its current rating, meanwhile its buy and build strategy could support further earnings-driven share price upside.

Executive interview - GB Group

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.
