davidosh: This Monday we are joined on the show by a top performing CEO of a company that Mello conference regulars will know exceptionally well….There is absolutely no doubt that over the past 15 years David Hornsby of Ideagen has been one of the most successful leaders and entrepreneurs that the AIM growth company market and before that on Plus Markets has seen… Indeed the growth has been amazing as it has gone from being a sub million pound tiddler on Plus to the nearly £750 million market cap today that Ideagen is today. Any investors that could see the investment case and had confidence in the company David was trying to build when he presented at Mello Central in 2011 and Mello Beckenham in early 2012 would now be at least 25 times the richer but he is sadly saying goodbye and moving into retirement. However we are sure there is still another chapter still to write and David will share the next inevitable entrepreneurial journey with Mello viewers and also tell us how he sets about delivering amazing returns for investors… Https://
maddox: It appears that the self-appointed 'Investor's Champion' has decide that it gains more from being controversial than analytical. So, whilst they don't understand what the Company does - IDEA's customers clearly do - and are prepared to pay for their services even in the current climate. This Covid-19 period has been very enlightening as it has shown just how 'sticky' IDEA's products are. It has thus strengthened my confidence in the investment case for IDEA and confirmed my decision not to subscribe to the Investor's Chump.
maddox: Just want to voice my support for ShareSoc and the highly valuable work the unpaid volunteers do on behalf of personal investors like us. This includes the many campaigns that they run seeking redress for shareholders against rapacious firms and lobbying Govt on our behalf to improve the rights of individual shareholders. This work will include persuading IDEA,for example, to provide access to placings - available through PrimaryBid this time - so big tick for IDEA as well. The access to excellent Company presentations like the IDEA advertised above and educational seminars is great value for money, so join up. Keep up the excellent work ShareSoc!

maddox: thanks sema, very positive update from Ben, great to hear that the sales are holding up. Looking forward to seeing them at Mellow Virtual - IDEA are excellent in regards to shareholder engagement.

glasshalfull: I’m currently writing a brief synopsis on each of my holdings...& IDEA remains one of the cornerstones of it. Not sure if the earnings table can be transferred over so here’s the link HTTPS:// SPRING PORTFOLIO 2019 WRITE-UPS (1) IDEA (IDEAGEN PLC) - Mr Dependable * Share Price 147p * M/Cap £323m * Enterprise Value £324m * Shares in Issue 219.8m * Stock Rank 41 (Quality 67 / Value 4) Similar to my previous updates, Ideagen is now a 14x bagger for me in my 9-years invested & unsurprisingly remains a cornerstone of my portfolio. They provide Integrate Risk Management (IRM) software & services to organisations operating in highly regulated industries. We are talking industry sectors across the globe from aviation and healthcare to banking & finance. It has a global presence & a customer base that includes many of the world’s blue-chip companies. Over 4,700 organisations use Ideagen's products including 7 of the top 10 UK accounting firms, ALL of the top aerospace & defence companies AND 75% of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies. Importantly they have a fantastic customer retention rate which has been circa. 95% for as long as I can remember. In terms of the numbers, they released positive H1 results in Jan 2019 & highlighted continued strong growth with recurring revs rising to 67% which provides increased visibility on earnings. SaaS revenues grew at +80% & now comprise 26% of overall revenues. This is a v important metric to watch as it de-risks forecasts & reliance of one-off software licence revenues. Ideagen has delivered 8 years of unbroken double-digit EPS growth. Worth pointing out that the growth in EPS is forecast at only +15% in FY19 simply due to a £20m placing in Sept 2018 (142p) & the subsequent timing of acquisitions. Yr end April Revenue Adj PBT Adj EPS 2010 £1.0m £0.2m 0.6p 2011 £2.3m £0.5m (+150%) 0.9p (+50%) 2012 £4.0m £1.0m (+100%) 1.26p (+40%) 2013 £6.5m £1.9m (+90%) 1.55p (+33%) 2014 £9.0m £2.6m (+37%) 1.7p (+12%) 2015 £14.4m £3.6m (+38%) 2.1p (+27%) 2016 £21.9m £5.7m (+58%) 2.7p (+26%) 2017 £27.1m £6.9m (+22%) 3.2p (+19%) 2018 £36.1m £9.7m (+40%) 4.2p (+32%) 2019e £46.5m £12.1m (+25%) 4.8p (+15%) I met the team early in 2019 at their H1 FY19 presentation & came away v impressed. In his first year as CEO, Ben Dorks has done an excellent job, with a superb grip on operational performance. This builds on the excellent development of the company under David Hornsby & I believe they are in very capable hands. By FY22 IDEA are targeting £100m revenue at 30% EBITDA margin with 74% of revenue recurring. finnCap have a 180p price target which is +22% from the current price. While this may appear a touch rich at a first glance, I’d suggest that it’s warranted as they’ve delivered in spades in the last 9-years; operate in a risk management market growing at +13% per annum; have fantastic client retention; strong recurring revenues & an offering that has increased enormously in breadth & depth via 16 x acquisitions that have delivered an enviable product set across multiple industries throughout the globe. Yes, Ideagen is my number 1, my GOALIE in the portfolio team & a company I believe my Mr DEPENDABLE. I’m sure it will remain a core holding for some time to come 😁 Kind regards, GHF
