Investment summary

In FY17 (revenues +19% and EBITA +27%), all service lines (bar ID Engage) grew strongly, particularly the fraud and risk management products. Incoming CEO, Chris Clark, outlined initial views on strategy, which is unlikely to see a major change in direction, with the focus remaining on driving the globalised nature of both the data sets and customer base. EBITA margins will be held at the 20% level as management steps up investment to integrate the product offerings and expand capabilities in the faster-growing segments; we increased our FY18 and FY19 EPS forecasts by c 4% and c 2%, respectively. Organic opportunities support the rating at these levels and, with an active acquisition strategy, there is room for further growth-driven share price upside.

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.
