Investment summary

The primary focus in FY18 was on integrating acquisitions and positioning the business for growth in anticipation of the emerging digitisation wave. FY18 sales of c €131m were below our forecast of €137.9m. Nevertheless, H2 adjusted EBITDA saw a c €5.4m improvement over H1 reflecting significant operational improvements. We trimmed our FY19–20 revenue forecasts by 4–5% and EBITDA by 5–7%. A key appointment has been made to drive sales in the US and SNP is close to announcing a new COO. SNP has a number of recent successful pilots, which it is optimistic will convert into larger projects. While the shares look punchy on c 32x our FY19e EPS, the rating could fall quickly as new projects come through.
