Investment summary

With Kape’s transition to a consumer cybersecurity business essentially complete, investors can focus on the trends in its core business. The interim results highlighted big improvements in both margins and visibility. A doubling of subscribers helped drive a 178% y-o-y rise in underlying EBITDA. We leave our estimates unchanged but with Intego adding $3m in subscription revenue in H2, the mix and margins should improve further. Stripping out $52m of cash, Kape trades at 19x FY19e EPS.

Industry outlook

As consumers become more connected and increase their reliance on the internet in their daily lives, the stakes of breach are increasing and, as has occurred in the B2B cyber security industry, demands are likely to expand beyond basic antivirus protections. Symantec estimates the wider ‘personal digital safety’ market to be double the size of traditional products at c $10bn. It is in this wider market that Kape is positioning itself.
