discoverIE’s Q323 trading update confirmed continued good momentum, with FY23 underlying earnings tracking ahead of board expectations. Q323 revenue was 11% higher y-o-y (5% organic, 3% from FX and 3% from acquisitions) and for the nine months to 31 December 2022, revenue grew 21% y-o-y (11% organic, 3% FX, 7% from acquisitions). The company has completed the previously announced acquisition of Magnasphere, adding a high margin sensor business to the Sensing & Connectivity division. We have upgraded our forecasts to reflect better trading and the accretive acquisition and note that gearing remains below the company’s target range, providing headroom for further M&A.
