Investment summary

In early June, Podini family interests sold 1,663,500 Piteco shares (c 9.18% of the share capital) to institutional investors. Piteco aims to list on the MTA by the end of the year and the share sale increases the company's free float to 27.41%, satisfying the 25% threshold for the main market (MTA). In April, Piteco said it was buying the principal assets of LendingTools, a small US payments software provider, for up to $14.5m in cash. The deal provides Piteco with an attractive route into the lucrative US market. Given the growth opportunities, strong cash generation and healthy balance sheet, we continue to believe the shares are attractive on c 15x our FY18e earnings.

Industry outlook

Piteco is the leading player in the Italian treasury management systems (TMS) market. TMS are software solutions used by corporate treasuries and finance departments to manage transactions and support their decision-making. The application software market in Italy is valued at €3.8bn (Assinform/NetConsulting 2014). A small slice of this (Piteco suggests 5-10%) represents the market for treasury and financial planning software. IDC estimates the worldwide revenue for the risk and treasury applications market was $2.1bn in 2013, up 4.3% y-o-y.
