Investment summary

While ARR growth has been slowing, the loss of three top ten customers - two due to insolvencies and one due to a takeover - severely dented this key metric in FY16 and confidence in the stock. However, we do believe that SLI has the raw material for a robust recovery. CEO, Chris Brennan is putting in place the people, processes and structures to drive the business long term. SLI is the market leader in a large and growing market, customer ROI is strong and the company has the portfolio to double revenues from its existing customer base. These changes will take time to embed however, so it is likely to be H217 before we see a return to robust ARR growth. Our estimates are currently under review.

Industry outlook

The global e-commerce market is estimated at $2bn growing at c 12% y-o-y. SLI estimates its global market opportunity at $1.7bn. The competitive landscape is crowded however, with direct competition, e-commerce platforms and in-house solutions in the competitive mix.
