Investment summary

H1 group revenue grew 2% at constant currencies, while cost of sales fell by 4% and hence the gross margin rose by 3% to 55%. Operating costs fell by 11% and consequently the operating loss reduced significantly to £2.3m. Brady has undergone a significant transition into a leaner, more focused business. Costs have been taken out and the recycling business sold earlier this year as it did not fit well with the business. The main priorities are delivering on legacy contracts while significant resources are being used to refresh the product, with c 25% of FY18 sales expected to be spent on R&D. Consequently, near-term ratings remain elevated. However, the market opportunity is substantial and we believe Brady is well positioned to benefit from the significant sector consolidation.

Industry outlook

Brady provides trading, risk and connectivity software solutions to the global commodity and energy markets – mining and oil companies, fabricators, traders, banks etc. The global E/CTRM market was worth c $1.65bn in 2016 (Comtech) and is forecast to grow at c 6% CAGR 2016-2020. Brady has a strong position in niche areas including commodity logistics, credit risk, metals (number one globally) and European energy, yet has a relatively modest market penetration overall (we estimate 1.2%).
