Growth of acquired company rocketing.... 25 September 2019 Ideagen PLC ("Ideagen", the "Company" or the "Group") Redland acquisition update - new contract wins Ideagen PLC (AIM:IDEA), a supplier of integrated risk management software to organisations in highly regulated industries, is pleased to announce excellent progress relating to the Redland Solutions Ltd ("Redland") business acquired in June 2019. Since the acquisition, Redland has performed strongly securing nine new logo wins with a combined contract value of GBP1.2m, including prestigious clients such as Natixis, Alexander Hall, TPICAP and IG Group. All new contract wins are for the supply of 'Insight', Redland's leading Senior Management and Compliance Regime (SMCR) software and have significantly increased the Redland SMCR customer base to 49 from 40 at the time of acquisition. Ben Dorks, Ideagen's Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are delighted with the progress that the Redland business has made within such a short period of time. To win 9 new high quality customers within the first 3 months following the acquisition is a clear indication of our leadership position within this high growth market and demonstrates the combined value of Redland and Ideagen.

I agree with everything you say about IDEA, except I think the golden period of rapid, easily identified growth has passed. It may well be however that IDEA is one of the great businesses that grows for years more. However, I've looked back over my portfolio a while ago and it appears that if I had sold all my shares when they rose to high p/e's compared to their forecast growth rate I would be much better off. So that's what I'm doing now, unless we hit a big bull market. Perhaps I've just missed the ones that have grown for 10 years.

Yump, its hardly doom or gloom. Idea are forecasting recurring revenues of 74%, plus they are seeing new opportunities in new geographies, plus more growth expected in the USA, following the couple of acquisitions. plus continued good double digit growth. good solid company.

I had these at a similar price and luckily ? decided to sell around 160p. I've wondered quite a bit whether global competition has now made it very difficult to build a business that continues to grow profits for years and therefore its very unlikely that you would happen to have one in a portfolio. Conclusion from that is that you sell in the golden period and don't do the LTBH thing that has been a mantra of investing for so long. But as far as I can see, the long term argument is always based now on the very few businesses where it would have succeeded. Also when they look like they're going to do it for any length of time, the share price rockets to a high p/e, so perhaps you get your used-to-be-long-term return in a few years anyway.

Cheers leavers, very useful. Funnily enough I sold all my shares at around the 150p mark recently. It's primarily about nervousness around the markets and general investor sentiment, and therefore protection of profits from an almost three-bagger which was one of my larger holdings held completely in my ISA. IDEA as a high-quality company is on a very high P/E. I'm somewhat concerned that it now has a combination of cost growth from all the global expansion it's undertaking, together with a slowdown in corporate decision-making reported in certain sectors. IDEA have not reported any new contract wins on their usually excellent web site for almost three months now. The possible dilution/need for funding as per the CFO and leavers above is also a downer. So I can't see much upside at present, but can see a sell-off on below-par or average trading. Which probably means they'll be bid for tomorrow at 190p :o)) Good luck all. IDEA will remain high on my watch list and I may rejoin if my thoughts are proven wrong. Which may well be the case.

I had an exchange with the Ideagen CFO recently and he was pretty helpful in clarifying the way the company is planning its growth. As I tried to explain in my posts in mid July when I exited my position entirely I have become concerned about how the company would fund its growth plans, the risk the company would take on to achieve them and the impact this could all have on shareholders from the perspectives of company leverage, EPS dilution and execution risk from stretching to bigger and bigger acquisitions. This is what he kindly explained to me: The funding requirements to hit the £100m 2022 revenue target is around £90m. That £100m of revenue will be hit by organic growth accelerating from 8% to 11% and from them buying approx £9m of EBITDA at 30% EBITDA margin at a multiple of 10 times EBITDA (as per recent acquisitions). This £90m would come pretty much equally from bottom line cash generation, new debt and new equity. The equity or debt mix could be flexed according to market conditions (ie if the cost of the debt at the time was low or if they could take advantage of a high share price with an opportunistic placing). £30m of debt would equate to 1 x EBITDA in 2022 so although that ratio would need to be higher initially to achieve the EBITDA target, if achieved successfully it wouldn’t result in an over-levered business by normal convention by 2022. Growing the proportion of recurring revenues expected over the next 3 years gives them a high degree of confidence in their ability to repay borrowings - he confirmed that debt funding in many ways is sensible as long as they don’t push it too far. An equity raise would likely be around 10% of market cap, so a 10% dilution to us. We have been warned! He pointed out that after a bit of dilution-driven eps stalling this year Finncap (ie the Ideagen board) are forecasting eps of 6.0p for the current financial year which would be 25% growth on last year. I also asked about acquisition size and his view was that they would continue to acquire within their historical range of transactions relative to the size of the group which has worked well for them to date and clearly reduces risk. The market is fragmented but more so at the market end of the market and large targets would be harder to acquire within the investment criteria they have set. So we should expect more £5-20m add-ons, anywhere in the world pretty much. So all of this confirms that they will need a lot of capital (pretty obvious) and that we will suffer some dilution such that EPS growth might not match sales growth. What is news to me is the higher than expected cash generation, the debt / equity split and the accelerating organic growth (welcome and very important). I don’t know if this makes me run out and re-purchase my position but I think it raises the price at which I would be happy to do that and it re-assures me that they are thinking about everything in a measured way (though I had no reason to doubt they were t doing that). Hope helpful.

New 8 minute interview with the CEO - good to see more acquisitions are "on the cards", with a good pipeline in fragmented markets and new geographies, and recurring revenues expected to increase to 74%: Https://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/900747/ideagen-still-hungry-after-ten-years-of-profits-growth-900747.html "Software group Ideagen plc (LON:IDEA) has posted higher profits for a tenth year running and Ben Dorks, chief executive, explains to Proactive why this trend should continue. Quality, risk and compliance have moved on from just box ticking exercises to being able to provide a real tangible benefit to a business, he explains. Ideagen has an impressive blue-chip client list, which revenues rose by 29% but Dorks was even more pleased with the improvement in recurring revenue, which accounted for 67% of that total and is rising to 73% this year. Acquisitions have added to the momentum and more are on the cards, he adds, as they are a great way to extend Ideagen’s sales reach."

Nice mention here re Montanaro's buying and the increase in their holding: Https://citywire.co.uk/funds-insider/news/five-shares-the-pros-are-buying-and-selling/a1260329 "Ideagen (IDEA) Who’s trading? Citywire AA-rated Charles Montanaro The trade: The founder of the eponymous small cap firm ramped up his stake in compliance and risk management software firm Ideagen from 2% of shares to 3.1%. How have the shares performed? Ideagen stock rocketed 264% over the three years to September 2018 to a record high of 172p but has since faltered, dropping to a low of 119p at the turn of the year. The shares were trading at 142p on Friday. What does the company say? In a mid-July update Ideagen reported revenue up 29% to £46.7 million over the year to end April as it switched to a subscription basis, with contracts signings up 77% over the period, 87% of which were made outside the UK. Recurring revenue rose from 62% to 67%. What’s the outlook? Canaccord reiterated a buy last month as it lifted its target price from 170p to 180p, putting it just above a median City target of 177p. After briefly climbing to a premium multiple in 2018 the consolidation has restored a historic sector discount, at 23x forecast earnings versus 28x."

You were correct gargleblaster! Been away for a couple of weeks. Excellent results. Recurring revenues are now up to a heady 67% and rising. Finncap have reiterated their 180p target price, and the 6p EPS forecast for this year will undoubtedly be increased nicely by further acquisitions (that EPS has already been boosted 15% by prior acquisitions). With £100m revenues targeted by April'22 - more than doubling from last year - there's still plenty to go for.

Hi DavROs. I have the same info as you so this is really about what our approach is to owning shares. It’s a great company because it has been delivering growth for 10 years, it is very defensive, it has good management, it’s in a great sector, it’s not over-levered....I could go on. BUT the second best decision I have ever made with this company (the best being to buy them in the first place) is to trade the shares semi-actively based on their valuation. I haven’t always got it right but I have been reasonably successful most of the time. When they traded up to 170 I was selling from 150 in increments and sold my last lot just above 170 luckily. The shares then were wildly over-valued on all historical multiples. Right now their growth aspirations I believe have impacted their short-term upside. A buy and build strategy is great but there is a need to fund it and that comes with a cost. The facts are they are growing organically at 8-10% which isn’t spectacular. Trading at 30 times adj earnings is quite heady unless they can grow eps at a similar rate. For me they do t feel hugely over-valued given the consistent growth but they don’t feel cheap either. My sense is it’s a 50:50 call them trading to 130 or 160. If they trade down when the market digests these results and in the absence of further news then I will jump back in. But none of us should own shares at any price should we.

"Why sell if you see them as a great company ?" I think you can probably answer that one yourself with a bit of thought.
