Investment summary

Store Electronic Systems (SES) has published interim results following the trading update on 31 July 2014. The strong international revenue growth (32% y-o-y) and the return to growth in France (5% y-o-y) were slightly lower than forecast, so while still believing that €100m of revenue is achievable for FY14, we have lowered our forecast to €95m. This does not alter our positive outlook, and we see the combination of SES’s leadership position in an underpenetrated but fast-growing market and the potential for margin expansion as drivers for sustainable mid- to long-term growth.

Industry outlook

Electronic shelf labels have been used for over 20 years in some markets, such as France and Japan, but uptake internationally has been relatively limited until recently. However, interest in the industry has been growing and management views key markets such as the US, UK and Germany as being close to the tipping point where adoption will start to accelerate.
