Investment summary

After several years of rapid growth, Claranova reported flat revenue in FY22. This reflected a post COVID-19 slowdown and a tougher customer acquisition environment for PlanetArt, offset by organic growth in Avanquest and myDevices. We reduce our revenue and EBITDA forecasts to reflect a slower recovery in growth for PlanetArt and a higher group cost base exiting H222. Claranova continues to trade at a substantial discount to its peers – solving the customer acquisition challenge in PlanetArt in a cost-effective manner in our view will be an important step to reducing this discount.

Avanquest, the consumer software business, is focused on developing and marketing software in three key product areas: PDF, photo editing and security/privacy. The IoT business’s myDevices platform provides a simple and effective way for SMEs and corporates to deploy IoT applications.
