Investment summary

Technicolor has now set out its strategy for the two separate businesses post the 65% spin-off scheduled for H222; Technicolor Creative Studios (TCS), a pure-play digital FX business; and Vantiva, comprising Connected Home and DVD Services. Vantiva’s financing is effectively already in place, while marketing is now active for TCS’s €600m term loan. Vantiva will focus on its leading positions in broadband and Android TV customer premise equipment, with its supply chain services broadening their reach. TCS’s activities cover film and episodic, advertising, animation and games, working with all the major studios and commissioners. Interim results are scheduled for 28 July.

Industry outlook

The underlying demand in both core operations remains very strong. For TCS, demand for high-quality content is robust across film, episodic and animation, with 80% of the current year pipeline booked. The industry remains beset by shortages of talent from which TCS is not immune, which is a constraint on faster growth. At Vantiva, demand for domestic broadband continues to be very good, with higher revenue growth again constrained by industry wide component shortages.
