I have a small position here and after a few wobbles am much more inclined to increase it than reduce it. The underlying business seems sound. Not perhaps mind blowing but definitely sustainable. Not a flash in the pan I would say.

SHARES 1Spatial's time is coming25 April 2014 By Steve Frazer It's been said in the past that 1Spatial (SPA:AIM) was too early to the Big Data space. It struggled simply because many customers and potential clients assumed the theme was for the future, not the present. But this seems to be changing and today's confirmation of in-line results for the year to January 2014 underscores the rapid growth potentially capable by this £44 million business.Today's announcement was relatively short, but sweet too. This line is encouraging: 'The Company produced a solid performance over the year and confirms that adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) and overall results for the year will be in line with market expectations.'Yet this bit is more important for the future: 'The Company enters the new financial year with a strong order back-log in excess of £7 million and a significant pipeline of opportunities.' Investors certainly like the cut of 1Spatial's jib, the shares jumping 8% to 6.75p. This, however, remains way down on the 10.5p levels seen at the start of the year, the shares slumping as part of a wider technology sell-off. To re-cap, 1Spatial's software is used to create, manage, analyse and display geospatial data. Customerso includes Unilever (ULVR), Unisys, US Census, Ordnance Survey GB, the Brazilian Army, and Ordnance Survey Ireland. Tapping investors for £18 million last year to buy a 75% stake in Star-Apic, a Belgium-based provider of Geographic Information Systems software and solutions specialising in land and infrastructure management, it significantly bolster 1Spatial's scope and scale, with sales and support teams bolstered in new Middle East offices. It also helps ongoing R&D and provides the firepower for more acquisitions down the line. It's worth noting that the business now owns all of Star-Apic after buying the last 10% slug of the company in January this year.Interestingly, 1Spatial is not burning cash as fast as it might, or was expected to. With £11.1 million on its books, or 25% of its market value, that's more than the £10.8 million analysts at N+1 Singer anticipated at this stage. And that's after the spending £600,000 for that last Star-Apic stake not expected by the City, equating to nearly £1 million cash better off.Singer forecasts revenue of £18.6 million for the year to January, from which investors can expected rough £1.1 million of adjusted EBITDA. For the financial year to January 2015 the company is forecast to produce £24.2 million revenue and £2.8 million EBITDA.

"The market's been agreeing with me since the placing." Yump you just can't re-write history, last week is the first time the market price has dipped below that price since the placing was announced...

Geegeeuk The market's been agreeing with me since the placing. mwaller Its news, but not really good or bad, except as a bit of general market news. As an investor, its relevant news that will affect revenues that's important imo, especially with a company that is either short on new significant contracts, short on details of repeat vs. one-off revenues and generally short on what it is doing with all that cash, apart from spending it. Did you ever look at the OS disclosed purchase orders ? Last time I looked they don't seem to have increased (the UK). So, as I said, the 'news' is neither here nor there. Customers of OS are just interested in what OS can give them. There is no evidence that OS need increased services from SPA, whenever OS get new sales themselves.

Completely underwhelming update and a dearth of new business. They'd better hit their BD targets in next 6 months.

Looks like the market today agrees more with you mwaller than Yump and Solarno Lopez, and as for alyo's point that is clearly a number pulled out the air or mischief making...

;-) Yump this board wouldn't be the same without you. How can you say this is not good news? Any muppet can see that if you help a leading business sustain and exploit their most advanced critical business model this will put you in the running for all the other organisations and businesses around the world that need to start grappling with the same issues and exploit the same opportunities. This market is just opening up. Even 5 years ago the market may have been small - but since digitisation of everything and the rise of internet of things spatial big data is a growing headache and or opportunity for stacks of firms that never even heard of Spatial a year ago. Anybody done a review of the investor press this morning ... They are all very upbeat ... Not my PR. As I said I am a long term fairly significant holder. I just very recently sunk in a fairly big wad of cash tbh. Why? Because I understand the market and fundamentals... And have faith this is a good opportunity. This statement is a solid pointer we are still on the right track. End of.

OS is a previous and done deal though. However much OS offer to (for example BT), SPA do not get increased revenues. However amazing the SPA engines are, they are already in use and OS have been using them for ages. Also, other agencies have known about OS for ages. So its not fantastic news. Its pretty irrelevant and nothing new wrt SPA. To be honest, you sound like some sort of PR tweeter for SPA.

Good to see you two back again! 412069 thanks for the link. On the contrary this link is fantastic news... How do you think OS keeps its raw mapping data enriched and current to offer these services? They use SPA engines - massive rules based spatial big data number crunchers that can take real time updates on the fly from surveyors (using 1Edit) to bundling and packaging up the datasets to down stream consumers. You may recall from an earlier post a way back the discussion around the replacement of their original engines with SPA for the exact reason they couldn't cope with the update and curation cycle. Also don't forget UK OS is the most advanced mapping agency in the world. Where some lead others follow. SPA is a proven enabler of these advanced spatial big data business models - all mapping agencies and data providers will have to come to terms with.

Before we can truly judge the trading statement i'd like to see how much of the software development has been capitalised to arrive at the "meets market expectations" for the P&L. I'm a holder based on potential for the future but unless the cash postion is based on working capital changes we need to be a little cautious on the spend. Woody

Expected waffle and that's what they've put in the statement. Repeating the jargon on here just makes it look worse. Investors deserve a lot more considering the placing dilution.

This is a good result. In line with expectations, a healthy backlog and order book, and on track for projections as per the prospectus. This past year was about shaping the platform for execution, which is significant effort, and is now pumping and good to go. They got the expanded leadership team, attracting some good talent, they have a consolidated well known brand, an integrated end to end offering with their core IP at the heart, and a coherent set of solution offerings they can offer on a global basis into key growth areas of geography (Asia) and segment (smart city), as well as expanding the footprint with new offerings into existing markets they are already anchored in and upgrading. SPA is in good shape. The Spatial Big Data Market is still at the start of growth with firms now orientating around how to move forwards. SPA is well positioned to capitalise directly and through strategic partnerships.

The future looks very bright if half of what they say is indeed true... Key events that took place during the year ended 31 January 2014 were as follows: - Established a world-wide organisational infrastructure Against this backdrop and with a strong order back-log and significant pipeline of opportunities across a number of geographies and industry verticals, the Board remains confident in the Company's future trading prospects. 1Spatial is entering an exciting period of growth well-funded and with the structure in place to evolve and execute our strategy. 2014/15 will see us continue to develop our product and service offerings and to develop new geographic and industry markets.

I have a small holding here which i've bought as a long term investment with a view to adding as results improve but todays in-line trading statement whilst reasonable hasn't demonstrated the growth i'd expected. They're still burning cash. At the interims they had £14.7m cash on the BS and as of 31st Jan they've £11.1m. Taking aside the £0.6m for Star-Apic that's £3m extra in six months on COS and admin. There may be some adjustments for working capital spend but they need to control costs much better otherwise sometime in the future we're going to see a further placing imv. Forecast (from digital look) were for £18m revenue and 0.03eps Woody

Popped back in here for the first time in a long time. Oh dear, I got turned off as soon as I realised what CEO was pulling in. I did suggest some time ago TCM but hey ho.
