Investment summary

Osirium traded in line with management expectations in H218 and expects to report close to 50% growth in revenues for FY18. Bookings are expected to be significantly ahead of FY17 (our forecast +50% y-o-y). Net cash at the end of FY18 was £2.3m, slightly below our £2.5m forecast. Osirium has signed up customers in new verticals over the last year, highlighting diverse customer use cases, and in February announced a contract with a major UK provider of software and IT services to the public sector. The growing number of proofs of concept and rate of conversion to sales provides support to our bookings and revenue forecasts.

Industry outlook

The market for privileged account management (PAM) software was worth US$690m in 2015 and is forecast to grow to US$2.27bn by 2020 (source: Gartner), with demand driven by regulation, the shift to the cloud and adoption spreading to smaller organisations. The complexity of established solutions means fewer mid-market businesses use PAM software than enterprises, so this is a market ripe for development.
