Investment summary

Following April’s trading update, GB Group’s (GBG) FY17 results held no major surprises, with the fraud, risk management and location services continuing to underpin strong growth. The incoming CEO plans to continue to execute the group’s internationalisation strategy and investment will be managed to maintain EBITA margins at c 20% over the medium term; while marginally lower than our FY19 assumption, we raise our EPS forecasts by c 4% in FY18 and c 2% in FY19 reflecting a lower expected tax rate.

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.
