1Spatial’s core technology validates, rectifies and enhances customers’ geospatial data. The combination of its software and advisory services reduces the need for costly manual checking and correcting of data.
H120 saw a solid performance from 1Spatial’s core business augmented by a good start from its recent Geomap-Imagis (GI) acquisition. GI generated revenue of £2m and EBITDA of £0.5m in its first three months and additional synergies have been identified. It is early days but in the context of a £5.3m price tag (EV) we see this performance as encouraging. 1Spatial also highlighted significant contract wins post period end. It now looks well set to execute on its next phase: establishing a market leading position in Location Master Data Management (LMDM).
