Ed Wielechowski of Odyssean Capital thinks that they “combines a portfolio of stable, high-margin, predictable events and data businesses with a newer digital-commerce division.”. The core of the digital-commerce division helps companies manage their presence and marketing spend on platforms such as Amazon in the US. This gives Ascential a diverse global footprint. He also says that this business is a “rare gem” in the UK with scope for it to become very profitable, although these profits are being reinvested to drive growth at present according to an article in MoneyWeek.

No position.

Tech Market View - 27/7/21:

Ascential Raises £153m for further acquisitions

AscentialInformation, analytics and ecommerce optimisation company Ascential has raised £153m via a share placing to fund further acquisitions as it continues its pivot towards digital, away from live events.

During FY 2020 Ascential lost £130m of revenue from its live events business due to COVID restrictions, to which it responded by restructuring around four segments, investing in the critical Digital Commerce business and disposing of non-core assets. Acquisitions are forming a key component of this restructuring.

In April Ascential invested an initial $52m plus deferred payments that will take the total to $103m-$162m over four years, to acquire Perpetua Labs. The SaaS-based self-service ecommerce media optimisation business Perpetua, which helps independent sellers and agencies optimise the purchase of search and display advertising on Amazon and other marketplaces, will take Ascential’s Digital Commerce into new territory.

Most recently Ascential acquired a 51% stake in digital content optimisation provider ASR Group Holdings for an initial cash consideration of $122m. ASR Holdings provides digital content optimisation capabilities to help brands grow sales through eCommerce marketplaces, driving higher consumer engagement rates for marketplace content for featured brands. It will allow Ascential to directly connect professional independent content with brands' products at the point of purchase to improve the impact of marketplace advertising.

Ascential recently announced interim results saw revenue for H1 2021 increase 37% to £175.1m up from £127.9m a year ago. Driving the performance was a 25% surge in Digital Commerce revenue to £59.7m and Marketing sales more than doubling to £63.9m from £26.4m. Product Design sales dipped 1% to £44.3m. This represents a return to form for Ascential who reported a 31% decline in annual revenue to £264m in FY20 and pre-tax loss of £166m.

you are probably aware that there is poor news on Avast/Jumpshot affecting the price

Sharecast have FY consensus revenue forecast at 411.7m with HY Revenue already posted at 236.2m. This seems a little conservative leaving ASCL with only 175m to find in order to match the forecast.

Notice that in the past there appears to be a first half weighting so possibly there is a seasonal bias with majority of companies producing their FY figures during first 6 months of the year.

Looks like Hyve plc getting close to the founders of money 2020 today with their deal. You have to wonder whether Ascential sells Money 2020 to them next year. Would be good price and cashflow for them.
