This is a very tightly held share with the top 10 investors holding over 95% of the shares in issue. The average daily trading volume is very small and it is still below most peoples radar. The downside of this is little movement over a period of time punctuated by sharp rises or falls, sometimes on small trading volumes. None of the major shareholders have made a transaction over the past 6 months so the trading that occurs tends to be by small retail investors.

Currently the shareprice is just hovering just above the IPO almost 3 years ago. You will need to do your own research and analysis to determine whether you think that it is a good time to buy.

A couple of nice contract wins, one in the UK small vehicles sector and the other in New Zealand.

Contract Wins
Contracts Expand Presence in New Markets and Geographies

Microlise Group plc announces the signing of contracts with GSF Car Parts ('GSF') and Foodstuffs South Island ('FSSI') with a combined contract value of over £2m.

GSF

Microlise has signed a six-year contract with car parts delivery and fitting company GSF following a competitive tender process. Microlise will provide GSF's fleet of vans with its ePOD (Proof of Delivery) and Journey Management software solutions. Microlise's solutions will enable GSF to remove paper-based processes from its operations and grow its enterprise accounts. The contract increases Microlise's presence in the lighter goods vehicle segment of the market in line with the Company's strategy to expand in adjacent markets. Microlise customers are traditionally operators who manage a large fleet of HGVs, each of which conducting one pre-planned journey each day. GFS's profile differs from this, with a highly dynamic, high-volume operation, with lots of delivery requests coming in each day. This win demonstrates how the Microlise product is flexible enough to penetrate these newer adjacent markets, supporting new growth with existing products.

Foodstuffs South Island

Microlise has signed a five-year contract with New Zealand based FSSI. FSSI is the largest grocery retailer in the South Island of New Zealand with over 200 stores across multiple brands as well as providing online grocery services. The contract significantly increases Microlise's share of the grocery freight market in New Zealand. Microlise will provide its Journey Management and SmartPOD (Proof of Delivery) solutions to FSSI's owned vehicles and sub-contracted fleet as part of a major project by FSSI to refresh its core systems. Microlise was selected owing to its partnership approach, attention to detail and its existing relationships with Foodstuffs North Island, with which FSSI recently merged, and Gilmours, which recently merged with FSSI's wholesale division.

Nadeem Raza, CEO of Microlise, commented: "We are delighted to announce these contracts, both of which are of strategic importance to the Group. GSF expands our reach into the smaller vehicles segment where our solutions have proven to be highly capable. Our software only solution greatly expands our potential market, and we are confident will improve our margins over time. Signing FSSI means we are now servicing some two thirds of the New Zealand grocery freight industry. This is an incredible achievement such a short time after entering the New Zealand market and demonstrates the strength of our offering and our potential to become market leaders in all the regions we operate in."

Berenberg ‘bullish’ on Microlise
Berenberg is backing transport management technology group Microlise (SAAS) as it proposes a maiden dividend.

Analyst Kurran Aujla retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and increased the target price from 170p to 210p on the software-as-a-service group, which advanced 2.1% to 170p on Wednesday. The group used its full-year 2023 results to announce a maiden dividend of £17.25 (LOL -if only, it's 1.725p) while ‘reaffirming operational gearing and a positive outlook on the year ahead’, which has allowed Aujla to be ‘bullish on the stock’. He said the group is likely to pursue a "progressive’ dividend policy although capital allocation remains ‘focused on internal projects, followed by M&A, and then finally shareholder returns. We think Microlise is well-placed to deliver on the full-year expectations. Conditions have improved, with new vehicle orders from original equipment manufacturers having improved materially, enabling the business to deliver on its record backlog." Aujla said.

A positive set of results with sales increased by 13%, EBITDA and net cash ahead of market expectations plus a maiden dividend of 1.725p.

Results for the year ended 31 December 2023
Strong performance driven by consistent strategic execution

Financial Highlights

· The Group has driven an increase in total revenue to £71.7m (13%) for the 12 months ended 31 December 2023 (FY22: £63.2m).

· Growth in the period was a result of continued strong demand from Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers and increased revenue from direct customers towards the end of the year as an improvement of new vehicle availability in H2 enabled the Company to deliver against its record orderbook.

· Recurring revenue +11% to £45m, ahead of market expectations, supported by the renewal of several major customer contracts and new customer wins (FY22: £40.5m).

· Gross profit +16% to £43.6m (FY22: £37.6m), at a gross profit margin of 61% (FY22: 60%) due to the increased gross margin % from both recurring and non-recurring revenues in the period.

· Adjusted EBITDA +15% to £9.4m (FY22: £8.2m), ahead of market expectations. Adjusted EBITDA percentage has increased marginally to 13.1% (FY22: 13.0%). Operating margins flat following the previously announced commencement of the Group's investment programme to improve its go-to-market and product offering and support further growth.

· Continued strong underlying cash conversion exceeding 90% reflecting growth in subscription revenue and continued good working capital management.

· Robust balance sheet with £16.8m cash and cash equivalents (FY22: £16.7m), £10m undrawn Revolving Credit Facility and £20m accordion facility available until April 2027 with the option to extend.

· Maiden final ordinary dividend of 1.725 pence per share (FY22: nil) payable on 28 June 2024 to shareholders on the register at close of business on 7 June 2024.

Strategic and operational highlights

· Subscriptions +6.8%, driven by continued growth in our existing customers together with new customer wins (FY22: 599,000).

· Annual recurring revenue (ARR) run rate +12% to £47.7m, of which 11.8% represented organic growth at 31 December 2023 from £42.6m on 31 December 2022.

· The Group added over 450 new customers in the period and long-term contract customer churn rate by value remained very low at 0.7% (FY22: 0.4%)

Current Trading & Outlook

· Microlise enters FY24 with good momentum driven by consistent strategic execution. Looking ahead, the Board expects organic growth to improve from current levels as we move through the year supported by a healthy orderbook and pipeline of opportunities across OEM and direct customer divisions. Operating margins are expected to trend upwards in FY24 and beyond, as we focus on careful management of the cost base and efficiently scaling the Group.

· We started the new financial year in line with our expectations and remain very confident with the opportunities we have in front of us, and in our ability to deliver against market expectations.

· Recent acquisitions of Transportation Management System (TMS) providers, Enterprise Software Systems and Vita Software, as well as vulnerable road user app supplier K-Safe are trading in-line with our expectations.

Nadeem Raza, CEO of Microlise, commented: "Microlise performed well in FY23, delivering double digit revenue growth, increased profitability and strong cash flows. During the period, we secured the renewal of several major customer contracts and significant new logo wins. We are continuing to build a resilient business to deliver sustained, efficient growth having made three key acquisitions that have enabled us to improve and expand our product offering. Our focus remains on scaling our business and increasing margins through consistently improving the efficiency of our business. With the supply chain issues in the first half of the year now fully behind us, and with a strong order book and healthy pipeline, we look forward to 2024 with confidence."

Investors and analysts presentation tomorrow should be good. Winning a £10.6 million five your contract with woolliesX, is the same value for the two acquisitions made by the company.

Enterprise Software Systems has been trading for more than 25 years and is a supplier of transport management software (TMS) for medium to large UK transport companies, offering end-to-end solutions. This acquisitions gives them access to more clients and bigger contracts and should pave the pathway for bigger revenues this year. They have won one of the biggest retailers in Australia, so more retailers should follow and can see them dominating the retailer industry in Australia very soon as well as the UK.

Expect some buy ratings from analyst and a lot more people buying Microlise shares over the nest few days and next week, when Press and analyst coverage begins.

This is a multi-bagger share and a gem of a company whose customers love them.

Yes and the final results are due on Tuesday April 9th.

"Microlise is a really interesting company. We look for businesses that have got really strong market positions and Microlise has 60% market share in the UK. There is a big opportunity not just to sell their products internationally because they are best in class but also domestically as they add additional functionality which helps with lots of regularity changes but also with the efficiency of a fleet. The holy grail that everyone is looking for is the SaaS revenues, which in perpetuity are ultimately recurring revenue that ultimately generate a very high quality cashflow and that's because your customers really value what you are doing for them." James Thorne, Columbia Threadneedle, 30th January 2024

"What you see from this company is that it has got a very sticky customer base and a very high quality customer base aswell which is very blue chip. They don't really lose clients so their revenue has great visibility on that. It's trading on less than 2 x forward sales and that is not expensive for this sort of business. The business is very well placed going forward" Oliver Brown, RC Brown, 11 March 2024

Wise words and it is worth noting that the current shareprice is just marginally above the IPO price in July 2021 and nearly 40% below its ATH in September of that year. We know from the year end trading update, that was issued 2 months ago, that sales were anticipated to have increased by circa 13% to £71.7m, EBITDA by 14% with net cash remaining at circa £16.8m even after cash expenditure of £3m on acquisitions over the past 12 months. Onward and upward !
