Investment summary

Following the trading statement on 31 July, we updated our UTW forecasts. For FY17, (to be presented using IAS 18), we assumed an additional exceptional charge related to nominated contract volumes, a reduction in revenues to reflect the same issue, as a well as a slippage in signing renewals contracts. We also assumed no final dividend payment for FY17 and no dividend for FY18. We also updated our FY18 forecasts (using IFRS 15), reducing revenue projections by c £11m. A second trading update (issued on 24 August) indicated, however, that FY17 group revenue would be c 3% higher than FY16 (FY17 c £87m vs our £83.3m) and FY17 adjusted PBT 40% down on FY16 (£10.6m vs our £5.8m). In light of the second statement, our forecasts now appear conservative and remain under review. However, following recent falls the rating of the shares appears undemanding.
