Investment summary

GB Group (GBG) reported a mixed performance in H123: strong growth in its Fraud and Location businesses was offset by weaker performance in the Identity business resulting in pro forma constant currency revenue growth of 3.4% y-o-y. Cryptocurrency headwinds and slowing economic growth drive downgrades to our Identity revenues and normalised EPS forecasts. Integration of Acuant is now complete and GBG is showing early signs of leveraging Acuant’s products and technology across the group.

Industry outlook

Globalisation and the growth in internet trading have also resulted in the need for higher compliance standards in light of the rising scope and financial impact of cybercrime. This, in turn, is driving the demand for more complex and comprehensive solutions for the verification of personal data and the reduction of identity-related fraud.
