The Pebble Group provides digital commerce, products and related services to the global promotional products industry through two focused, complementary and differentiated businesses: Facilisgroup and Brand Addition.

The Pebble Group operates within the global promotional products market, estimated at $50bn. It is a highly competitive landscape, but distributor participants are predominantly small and local. The North American market is estimated by industry body PPAI to be worth $26.1bn in FY23 and to have grown by 2.2% in the year, slowing in H2. Q124 growth is estimated at 1.5%. The total European market is a little smaller. The industry’s resilience is based on its utility and effectiveness as an advertising medium.

Pebble’s end April AGM update confirmed trading in line with FY24 expectations, with attractive opportunities for both its businesses. Facilisgroup is a SaaS business, helping North American distributors to optimise their operations, with access to an approved supplier roster. Brand Addition services global brands’ needs for branded product for in-house and external programmes. The well-publicised dip in tech sector marketing spend was a key factor in Pebble’s Q423 outlook revision. Both segments are now well placed to benefit from improving corporate confidence, although timing is uncertain. Pebble is well funded, with £15.9m of net cash (excluding leases) at end FY23, and a £5.0m share buyback is now operational (over £0.5m transacted to date).
