Investment summary

OTC Markets Group (OTCM) provides regulated marketplaces offering a cost-effective solution for targeting US investors. Q2 results were ahead of our expectations, with a 3% revenue beat (9% ahead of Q216) translating into operating profits nearly 10% above our estimate: evidence of the potential operational gearing present in the business. We have increased our pre-tax profit estimates by 6% and 8% for this year and next while, on a longer view, the continued increase in the number of states that grant OTCM markets Blue Sky recognition should increase the appeal of these cost-effective trading venues to corporates.

Industry outlook

The pick-up in new company sign-ups at the start of the current year is encouraging and if higher market levels are sustained this should also be helpful for OTCM. There are general geopolitical, regulatory and market risks to the outlook, but OTCM's well-established network and cost-effective offering are positive features for the longer term.
