Brave Bison Group plc (AIM: BBSN), the independent Digital Media & Social Video Broadcaster, today announces its half year results for the six months ended 30 June 2016. 

 

The Group re-branded and changed its name from Rightster Group plc to Brave Bison Group plc on 9 May 2016.

Other notable strategic achievements as we grow our brand and social video broadcast businesses:

 

·     Re-launching our "SlashFootball" channel, a multi-platform football digital property owned and operated by Brave Bison, as the cornerstone of our social video football network. The SlashFootball Network has already amassed 9.4m+ followers on Facebook and 4.1m+ subscribers on YouTube.

·     Launching Brave Talent, our international social talent management business with recognised stars like Callux, Joe Tasker, Anto Sharp, and Kiana Jones with a combined social reach of 30m.

·     Hiring Will Pyne, former Founder and Creative Director of award winning social agency Holler, as Chief Creative Officer.

·     Continuing to re-orientate the business towards advertising revenues, which increased to 93% of total revenue in the first half, driven by multiple large brand deals including Havas, Ford and P&G.

·     On 21 July 2016 the company issued 1,942,898 new ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each in the Company (the "New Shares"), pursuant to the exercise of options.

 

 

Ashley MacKenzie (CEO) commented:

"I am thoroughly pleased with the pace of progress re-orientating the business. We are undergoing a transformation from a third party technology provider to a social video broadcaster, and throughout that transformation have managed to significantly grow revenues, while dramatically reducing our operating costs.

 

Our primary financial goal remains to achieve profitability. While maintaining close control of our cost base, management will be looking to build on this strong growth momentum throughout the second half of the year. Significant revenue opportunities will be driven by maintaining competitive advantage in a fast-paced online video industry - combining our data-informed scientific approach to audience management for existing video content, with the remarkable artistic talent we have in our business for new content creation."

Financial Review

The Group continues to see strong organic growth in its revenues with a 38% increase in net revenues, in the first half when compared against H1 2015.

 

The most significant revenue growth has been experienced in the United Kingdom. The United States of America and the Rest of the World have also attained pre-commission share growth, which have more than offset the reduction experienced in mainland Europe resulting largely from office closures. Advertising remains by far the most material revenue stream, accounting for 93% of total revenue including commission share, driven by multiple large brand deals. Gross profit margin in H1 2015 benefitted from one-off revenues and fell substantially in H2 2015, from 50% in H1 2015 to 35% in H2 2015, as these did not repeat. Under the new Management team margins have now begun to grow, increasing to 39% in H1 2016. As the company completes its transformation from a third party technology provider to a social video broadcaster owning Intellectual Property rights, gross profit margin should stabilise and rise.

 

During H1 2016 the Group undertook a successful re-structuring and cost management programme. As a result, Group headcount at 30 June 2016 has fallen to 124 (June 2015: 209). Any future new headcount will be invested in key territories and products where we see potential for profitable growth.

 

The Board notes the volatility in the value of the British pound, following the result of the UK referendum on membership of the EU. With approximately 75% of the Group's revenues generated in other currencies the Group's reported results stand to benefit on translation from a weaker British pound. All gains and losses on re-translation of foreign currency monetary balances are recognised in profit or loss on translation at the reporting date. For the first half of the year these amounted to a £0.8m gain (2015 £0.2m loss).

 

Business Review

The new Board and management returned to the Company at the end of 2015 with the goals of executing 3 simple steps:

 

1) Simplify the business - we have closed five offices across the period, reduced headcount from 198 to 124 and have shuttered five revenue lines compared to our historic activity. We are now far more focused on UK and Asia-Pacific, and this has accelerated our path towards profitability.

 

2) Grow revenue organically - net revenue is up 38% on the period with no M&A. This is being driven by growing advertising revenues and better focus on key partners such as AFL, 20th Century Fox, P&G and Paramount Pictures to name a few. Encouragingly, we have partnered with Paramount Pictures on our first branded content projects in both US and Australia in the period.

 

3) Move up the value chain - this is the most important step that we are focusing on. With large audience and revenue growth available to owners of intellectual property rights in the social video space, we are focused on delivering this valuable strategic goal. To this end, we have appointed a proven entrepreneur and creative leader, Will Pyne, to lead our twenty-six strong creative studio. We have announced our first major investment in "SlashFootball" that makes its commercial re-launch in the Autumn. Football is the largest global sport and a huge commercial platform that aligns well to our territorial focus of Europe and Asia-Pacific.

 

The results we are starting to see represent the culmination of this strategy matched to the expertise and efforts of the team executing it. They go hand-in-hand.

 

With the business now finding its strategic place, costs close to being aligned to the immediate revenue opportunity, the Company will consider sensible acquisitions in the event it can identify targets that accelerate its strategic development and enhance profitability on commercially viable terms. The management team have significant experience with M&A and have learnt a great deal about how to grow in this market.

 

Board Changes

Changes to the senior team in 2016 have complemented the arrival of new CEO Ashley MacKenzie and COO Richard Mansell in late 2015.  Kevin Deeley, formerly CFO of Base79 Group which was acquired by the Group in August 2014, was appointed as CFO and Director on 20 May 2016 following the departure of Niall Dore.

 

On 26 May 2016 Patrick Walker resigned as a non-executive director of the Company to focus on his newly appointed role as Director of Media Partnerships for Facebook in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

 

Outlook

The Group has had an excellent start to 2016, bringing us significantly closer to profitability. In addition to a strong growth in revenues, material annualised cost savings have been achieved. Management will seek to continue this growth momentum with a concentration on further high profile international deals and a new innovative product strategy on the horizon, which will bring new revenue opportunities and operational efficiencies to the Group.

The information for the year ended 31 December 2015 does not constitute statutory accounts as defined in section 435 of the Companies Act 2006.  A copy of the statutory accounts has been delivered to the Registrar of Companies.  The auditors reported on those accounts: their report was unqualified, did not draw attention to any matters by way of emphasis and did not contain a statement under section 498 (2) or (3) of the Companies Act 2006.  The interim financial statements have not been audited or reviewed by the company's auditor.

 

2        Accounting policies

Basis of preparation

The annual financial statements of Brave Bison Group plc are prepared in accordance with IFRS as adopted by the European Union.  The condensed set of financial statements included in this half yearly report has been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 "Interim Financial Reporting", as adopted by the European Union. The interim statement has been prepared on a going concern basis, which assumes that the Group will be able to meet its liabilities for the foreseeable future. The Group is dependent for its working capital requirements on cash generated from operations, cash holdings and from equity markets. The cash holdings of the Group at 30 June 2016 were £8,407,856.

 

Significant accounting policies

The accounting policies applied by the Group in this condensed set of consolidated financial statements are the same as those applied by the Group in its consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 December 2015. 

 

Adoption of new and revised standards

At the date of authorisation of the financial statements, certain new standards, amendments and interpretations to existing standards have been published by the IASB but are not yet effective, and have not been adopted early by the Group. Management anticipates that all of the relevant pronouncements will be adopted in the Group's accounting policies for the first period beginning after the effective date of the pronouncement. Information on new standards, amendments and interpretations that are expected to be relevant to the Group's financial statements are provided in the Group financial statements. Certain other new standards and interpretations have been issued but are not expected to have a material impact on the Group's financial statements.

  

3        Segment reporting

Management identify only one operating segment in the business, being monetising content online. This single operating segment is monitored and strategic decisions are made on the basis of this segment alone.

 

As a result, only the geographic reporting of revenue analysis has been included in this note.

 

The breakdown of net assets and capital expenditure for geographic reporting has not been shown as it can only be provided as an arbitrary breakdown. 

  

Geographic reporting

Brave Bison has identified four geographic areas (UK, United States of America, Europe and rest of the world) and the information is presented based on the customers' location.

6        Loss per share

Both the basic and diluted loss per share have been calculated using the loss after tax attributable to shareholders of Brave Bison Group plc as the numerator, i.e. no adjustments to losses were necessary in 2015 or 2016.  The calculation of the basic loss per share is based on the loss attributable to ordinary shareholders divided by the weighted average number of shares in issue during the period.  All share options and warrants have been excluded when calculating the diluted earnings per share (EPS) as they were anti-dilutive.

Financial instruments measured at fair value

Financial assets and financial liabilities measured at fair value in the statement of financial position are grouped into three levels of fair value hierarchy. This grouping is determined based on the lowest level of significant inputs used in fair value measurement, as follows:

 

·     level 1 - quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities

·     level 2 - inputs other than quoted prices included within level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (i.e. as prices) or indirectly (i.e. derived from prices)

·     level 3 - inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs).

 

The estimated fair value of the deferred consideration is categorised within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.  The fair value estimate has been determined using a present value technique.  The fair value is estimated by discounting the liability at 15%. The discount rate has been determined using the group's average cost of capital. The most significant input is the discount rate of 15%. Receivables, cash, borrowings and payables are categorised as Level 1.

 

Deferred consideration payable is contingent on the performance of the acquired businesses and is determined using a combination of management forecasts and projections for relevant scenarios in order to estimate the most likely outcome for a given transaction.

 

10      Contingent liabilities

There were no contingent liabilities at 30 June 2016 (30 June 2015 and 31 December 2015: None).

 

11       Transactions with Directors and other related parties

There have been no material changes in the related party transactions described in the last annual report aside from those disclosed elsewhere in this interim statement.

 

12      Subsequent events

There are deemed to be no significant subsequent events following 30 June 2016.
