Investment summary

In August, SCISYS’s ANNOVA Systems unit achieved an important commercial milestone in its BBC contract, for the supply of ANNOVA's OpenMedia software. As the critical software functionality implementation and live pilot milestones have been successfully completed, the roll-out of OpenMedia across the BBC has begun. ANNOVA also announced two contract wins – a c €2.5m contract with an unnamed major public German broadcaster and a €0.8m contract with the German public broadcaster ARD-aktuell for a cross-media planning portal for its national prime news programmes, including ‘Tagesschau’. Noting management’s goal to achieve £60m in revenues and double-digit operating margins within three to five years, we believe the stock looks attractive on c 8x our FY18e EPS.

Industry outlook

SCISYS is a specialist provider of high-value IT solutions, focusing on specialist markets of space, media and broadcast, and defence sectors, along with other public and private sector enterprises. In recent years, weakness across the group's significant public sector customer base has been offset by strong performances from space and defence. The recent acquisition of ANNOVA Systems adds critical mass to the Media & Broadcast activities while extending the previous radio-focused offering into television and online.
