Investment summary

On 26 August SLI Systems reported its full FY14 results. Annual recurring revenue (ARR) and growth costs (sales, marketing and engineering expense for new clients) were lower than management’s forecasts as a result of it taking longer than expected to find and train appropriate sales and marketing staff. In our opinion, the difference between forecast and actual ARR does not alter the long-term outlook so we have not changed our forecasts. Unwinding our DCF valuation by a year and improved cash flow in FY14 as a result of lower expenditures means our DCF valuation increases from NZ$2.62/share to NZ$2.96/share.

Industry outlook

E-commerce site search is a growth market, thanks to the overall growth in e-commerce and the importance of effective search in converting website visits to sales. SLI Systems' cloud-based product minimises the initial set-up costs for its customers, resulting in a high ROI in a short time frame. Global e-commerce sales are expected to grow by 20.2% in FY14.
