Tech Market View - 24/11/23

EdTech focused RM to close Consortium business

RM plc has announced it will close its Consortium business, part of the RM Resources division, from the end of December.

RM completed the acquisition of Consortium (the Connect Education & Care business of Connect Group plc) in June 2017 for a purchase price of £56.5m. Prior to the acquisition (year ended 31 August 2016) Consortium had revenues of £64.8m and an operating profit of £7.8m (see RM: A good deal in a challenging market). At the time we said, if managed correctly, the deal should bring key benefits to RM. There were strong synergies with its curriculum resources business TTS, product and channel optimisation opportunities, greater access to the secondary school and multi-academy trust markets, and international growth potential. It is fair to say, things did not go to plan.

Integration related issues were apparent soon after the acquisition and although RM took steps to address them it was soon hit by the additional impact of COVID-19. Sales of consumables were materially lower over the periods of lockdown. However, it was Project Evolution, which comprised the implementation of a new Group-wide IT platform, that was the nail in the coffin for Consortium.

The Project to replace legacy core systems, deliver warehouse automation, cloud-based ERP and e-commerce functionality was initially planned to complete in 2021 but suffered significant delays and cost overruns. In 2022, RM warned this implementation, which initially focused on improving delivery in Consortium, was having a significant impact on warehouse throughput and system / process optimisation and customer confidence (see IT implementation hits profit at RM). Consortium revenue fell 26% to £33.6m in FY22 (see A difficult year for RM). The decision was subsequently made to restrict ‘EvolutionR17; rollout to the Consortium business rather than the Group as a whole.

In H1 FY23, Consortium revenue was down 58% to £6.7m (H1 FY22: £16.0m) and management warned that it was a challenge to improving the financial performance of RM as a whole and clouded the value of the rest of the Group (see RM's challenges continue in H1). New CEO, Mark Cook, implemented a Transformation Programme, with an initial focus on stabilising the business. This included a detailed review of RM’s portfolio to identify core areas of the business which were best placed to capitalise on EdTech opportunities. The decision has now been taken to close Consortium and make a material write off of the carrying value of the business and its related assets as a non-cash item.

Full details of RM’s strategic roadmap are expected in the new year; however, Cook commented that he is confident the new strategy, ”will shape RM into a pioneer of education technology”.

The ongoing issues at Consortium, meant Cook was left with little option but to take this difficult decision. Operational issues were taking too long to resolve, consuming too much money and damaging the trust of customers. A more technology focused RM raises questions about the future of TTS, but this is the right approach for what was one of the original EdTech pioneers. Its RM Assessment business has been the bright spot for the Group, but RM Technology has struggled to achieve significant and sustainable growth. A lot rides on the success of the new strategy.

Rockwood pushing RM in their current roadshow. Maybe we will get a trading statement sometime soon rather than wait until August for the interims.

New CEO, Mark Cook, is a turnaround specialist by all accounts, most recently at Capita. Must be more to go at RM I guess - I was hoping we were coming out of the woods anyway.

Good morning, I see that RM. will realise $10.2m for the sale of c294,000 IP addresses
The cash proceeds will be “used to strengthen the balance sheet”
I bought in near the start of December 44-45p on the news of their £16m disposal.The potential is hopefully there as they continue to dispose of non core assets (while also sorting out their disastrous IT implementation)
High risk tho & not for widows and orphans"

What is your source for this information (re sale of IP addresses for $10.2m)? I can find no other mention of it.

grinding upwards

how much of the previous price of 250p will it claw back ?

75-100p should be fairly easy imo in the short term....& then start looking at >100p, but that will need the news from the future....

Shares back above 50p today for the first time since the Aug 22 price collapse.

Why not ?!!!!


the co. had profitable divisions then, I see no reason why the past profits can't be repeated (& hence the share price, as first guestimate) once the overrun of the current software project is fixed.

or you have some justification for why it can't happen ?
the client demand in the education sector has evaporated ?! I don't think so.

(Alliance News) - RM PLC shares dropped on Tuesday after the company skipped its interim dividend, reported a swing to loss, and warned on profit in the short-term.

RM shares were trading 31% lower at 68.30 pence on Tuesday morning.

RM is an Abingdon, England-based provider of technology and resources to education sector.

It swung to a pretax loss of GBP7.2 million in the six months to May 31 from a profit of GBP2.9 million a year before.

Operating expenses jumped 38% to GBP40.6 million from GBP29.4 million, but revenue grew by just 4.4% to GBP100.3 million from GBP96.1 million.

The company attributed the revenue growth to strong international sales in its RM Resources unit, as well as a full series of UK school exams.

Nonetheless, RM said revenue was below expectations:

"It is worth noting that revenue was lower than anticipated, held back by the short-term impact in RM Resources of delayed shipments at the end of the period due to the implementation of the new IT platform."

RM decided to skip its interim dividend, due to the elevated costs and timeline associated with the deployment of its IT platform. The firm paid an interim dividend of 1.7 pence a year ago.

Looking ahead, the company warned of challenging headwinds, such as inflation and high energy costs.

RM said that the IT implementation coupled with the current macroeconomic challenges will "dilute" profit conversion in the short-term.
