Investment summary

Ebiquity’s H118 trading update indicates a good revenue performance from both the Media and Analytics & Tech segments, together ahead 7% y-o-y on a like-for-like basis. The referral to a Phase 2 CMA investigation of the Intel disposal has led to uncertainty and a 9% fall in Intel revenues, with a consequent impact on profits. Our revised forecasts for FY18 reflect this, but the improving performance of the (larger) balance leaves FY19 estimates unchanged. The share price has drifted 15% since the CMA referral. A full rerating may have to wait for a resolution, but the current discount appears overdone.

Executive Interview - Ebiquity

Industry outlook

The marketing sector continues to undergo considerable change, driven at least in part by issues of accountability and transparency, with both marketers and agencies finding their business models challenged. Ebiquity’s positioning as a leading independent media and marketing consultancy looks increasingly compelling. The group's growth acceleration plan aims to capitalise on its position to increase top-line growth on a more sustainable margin.
