Acquisitions significantly broaden the offering

Update | Technology | 26 Feb 2018

FY17 was a year of strong growth for DATAGROUP, with revenues rising by 28% and EBITDA surging 42%. The EBITDA margin rose by 120bp to a record 12.1%. The core cloud services continue to grow strongly, rising by 64% and recurring sales represented 70% of total revenue (which translated to 88% of gross profit), up from 66% in FY16. In August 2017, DATAGROUP acquired ikb Data to extend the group’s offering into the financial services sector and in January 2018 it announced the acquisition of Almato, a pioneer in Robotic Process Automation. Consequently, DATAGROUP is building a number of key differentiators in its markets.


EBITDA margins lift to 10.6% as acquisitions drive growth

Update | Technology | 23 May 2018

DATAGROUP performed in line with expectations in H1, with revenue growing by 24%, including 1.5% organic growth, or 5–6% when adjusting for discontinued activities from acquisitions. Management conservatively maintained revenue guidance, despite 50% of this already being generated in H1, with ALMATO only contributing for one month in the period. While the rating looks fairly priced at c 10x EBITDA, DATAGROUP offers an excellent track record, high recurring revenues, a clear focus on the large German Mittelstand sector and an increasing number of key differentiators following the acquisitions of ikb Data and ALMATO.


IT services one-stop shop for Mittelstand companies

Initiation | Technology | 23 May 2017

DATAGROUP has established an interesting niche providing Mittelstand companies with a modular suite of technology solutions. The group's CORBOX “cloud-enabling platform” is highly scalable, benefiting from a centralised approach and employing long-term, fixed-price contracts, which ensure stable recurring revenues (66% of FY16 revenues, which related to 85% of gross profit). This gives DATAGROUP a significant advantage over smaller domestic players, while large international IT services competitors are focusing their energy on larger enterprises.
