More new highs. Also just tipped by the Share Centre: Http://www.yourmoney.com/investing/stock-week-iomart/ "Stock of the Week: Iomart 11/12/2017 Ian Forrest, investment research analyst at The Share Centre, picks cloud computing consultancy firm Iomart as stock of the week. AIM-listed group Iomart has been involved in cloud computing long before cloud computing became fashionable. It is one of the UK’s leading companies in an industry that is expected to grow fairly rapidly as businesses and consumers generate more data and become comfortable with having that data located offsite. Essentially, Iomart facilitates data hosting services so that clients and the end user can have access to data and web services in a secure manner while reducing costs and complexity and investors should recognise that the group expects the creation of data to be exponential for some years to come. Last week, the group reported its half year results in which it stated that revenues were up 12% on the same period last year, coming in at £47m, while adjusted pre-tax profits rose by 9% to £11.6m. Despite the numbers falling slightly short of expectations, the shares rose on the back of the announcement and, in general, the shares have made steady progress over recent years helping cement our belief that the long-term prospects have not fundamentally changed. This is a business which is operationally geared, and it can take more business for relatively little cost. The group has partnerships and programmes with some of the largest computing businesses in the world such as Microsoft and Dell and there’s further promise in regards to hosting government departments and the continuation of targeting small acquisitions. As a result of all of this, as well as rising dividend payouts, we continue to recommend Iomart as a ‘buy’ for investors looking for capital growth and willing to accept a higher level of risk."

Here you go: "A strong first half for iomart (IOM) saw cloud services revenue rise by 13 per cent to £40.3m, albeit with a slower organic growth rate year on year. This stemmed from the conclusion of a low-margin public cloud consultancy project. Adjusting for this, the division’s organic growth was up an encouraging 8 per cent. The shares rose on the day, supported by the announcement of a maiden half-year dividend. IOM:LSE iomart group PLC 1mth Today change -3.00% Price (GBP) 371.50 Recent acquisitions provided a fillip to the top line. The purchase of Dediserve in May for €7.9m (£6.7m) provides the company with an EU operation as Brexit looms, and expands iomart's cloud infrastructure presence. In line with management’s plan to consolidate its ecommerce offering, Tier 9 (trading as Simple Servers) was acquired in July, and Sonassi was purchased after the reporting period. These both provide infrastructure for ecommerce applications, specifically for the Magento ecommerce platform. Chief executive Angus Macsween says Sonassi makes significant use of automation, and boasts impressive cash profit margins of more than 80 per cent. Iomart’s small and micro business segment, Easyspace, continued to trade well, with revenue up 2.3 per cent to £6.7m. Analysts at N+1 Singer forecast adjusted pre-tax profit of £24.4m with EPS of 18.4p for the year to March 2018, up from £22.4m and 17p in FY2017." IC View Bosses have fulfilled their pledge to pay a half-year dividend. Recurring revenue has risen as per their objectives, and they anticipate “another year of material growth”. The shares are trading on a demanding multiple of 21 times forecast earnings, but these results suggest upside. Buy.

HT FT AV Finncap iomart has delivered interims which demonstrate their typical mix of organic and acquired growth, leading to mild net upgrades to revenue (FY18: +1% and FY19: +3%) and EBITDA (+2% and +5%), while net debt of £24.5m is still comfortably below 1x annualised EBITDA. The ongoing acquisition of skills and customers is leading to development of further revenue streams, and development of iomart's reputation as specialist in multiple fields and verticals (for example cloud back-up as a niche expertise, and e-commerce as a vertical specialisation). The cloud market opportunity remains strong and growing, given the complexity of the delivery of reliable cloud services, whether private, public, or hybrid. iomart continues to deliver consistent growth, strong margins, and predictable cash, with an attractive cash flow yield and a supportive dividend illustrating board confidence. With forecasts upgraded, we lift our target price to 415p, equivalent to an unchallenging 10x FY19 EV/EBITDA. Peel Hunt The group continues to benefit from the structural growth of the cloud economy by focusing on transactional, mission-critical, and largely web-facing, private cloud hosting opportunities. This was evident in the 1H18 results, where the growth (org cloud hosting is +8%) and the margin (cloud hosting adj EBITDA is 44.6%) contained no surprises. Therefore, we leave our earnings forecasts largely unchanged. In recent months, the company has made two acquisitions to better target online retail businesses, a clear growth area, and has invested to future-proof its network infrastructure. Both strategic steps are in line with what we have come to appreciate from iomart. Given its structural sweet-spot in a world obsessed with the Cloud, its 10% adj EBITDA CAGR over the forecast period and the underlying FCF/EBITDA rate of 50%, we remain fans of the story and reiterate our Buy rating. iomart trades on cal 18 EV/EBITDA of 9.6x, a discount to the peer group on 13x.

N+1 Singer have actually increased their target price to 427p (from 388p) today. Finncap have similarly increased to 415p (from 400p). Petewy, the maiden interim divi per today's results was 2.25p. Singer's forecast is for a total divi of 6.9p this year.

New highs after today's very encouraging interims. The outlook in particular is extremely confident: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/iomart-group-plc--iom-/rns/half-year-report/201712050700073584Y/ "The Group has enjoyed another good period of trading in the first half of the year, with growing recurring revenues in line with our business model. The market opportunity remains significant and we continue to invest in our skills, infrastructure and capabilities to meet the evolving demands of the market. We are firmly on track to deliver another year of material growth and we remain confident in our prospects." And: "Within the overall growth of cloud, eCommerce is one of the fastest growing areas. We have always had an exposure to the online retail market and we are building our expertise in this area to position ourselves as eCommerce cloud leaders." There's been 3 acquisitions in the last 6 months, and the narrative suggests there will be more given the "comfortable" level of debt.
