Investment summary

Technicolor’s half year figures showed it on track to meet management guidance on EBITDA and EBITA for both FY21 and FY22. Trading conditions are improving for Technicolor Creative Services as the film and episodic industry re-emerges from lockdowns, with a strong order book and pipeline for H221 and FY22. Connected Home is also experiencing strong demand but its performance is being constrained by supply issues for componentry. With the group’s planned cost savings on track, the shift is continuing back towards the equity, which now represents 39% of the EV.

Industry outlook

COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of reliable domestic broadband and high-quality wi-fi as homes increasingly act as devolved workplaces alongside greater content consumption. This is unlikely to change as the global economy reopens. In Technicolor Creative Studios, the live content industry continues to re-emerge, while animation demand remains strong. Fresh, high-quality content is crucial to reinforce the attractiveness of VoD platforms to subscribers and advertisers in a highly competitive market.
