Investment summary

In its FY18 trading update Numis indicated that full year revenue for FY18 was approximately 3% ahead of FY17. While activity levels were strong in the second half, the timing of transactions for Corporate Broking and Advisory and lower average values on those completed in the period meant that second half revenues were lower than we had estimated. In H218 the Equities business broadly matched its first half performance and encouragingly MiFID II does not appear to have had an adverse impact on the business, reflecting the strength and breadth of the service offered to institutional clients. The other area highlighted by the group is an “unprecedented period” of senior staff hiring. Reflecting the combination of a lower revenue expectation and higher assumed costs our FY18e EPS estimate was reduced by 24% but given the indication of a very strong pipeline the reduction was a more modest 5% for FY19.

Industry outlook

The group points to a very strong near-term pipeline which paired with the momentum in the Equities business should help provide a good start to FY19. On a longer view the investment in senior staff should contribute to a broadening and deepening of the group’s capabilities and hence enhance potential earnings through market cycles.
