Executive Chairman's Statement

 

These results are not meaningful in the conventional sense of the word.

 

While our group is newly formed, our first two market-leading partners were founded eleven and seventeen years ago. Also, we are reporting on a period of trading which encapsulates six months at agenda21 and just six weeks trading at MMT. We have been materially break-even at an adjusted Group EBITDA level; with MMT contributing fully in the second half this will turn positive as Group costs are leveraged.  So if a picture is worth a thousand words our interim results would require a thousand words to paint a proper picture.  Nevertheless, in this fast-paced, time-poor digital age, I shall aim to be brief. In time, as we build on our platform, we expect that our results will speak for themselves.

 

While our financial performance is in line with our expectations, the more important update to provide is how we are progressing with our strategy of creating a digital marketing group for the 21st century. Nine months in, we are encouraged that our original investment thesis seems to be borne out by two things: the availability of attractive potential partners interested in our proposition, and the value that we are adding to the two partners we have already brought into the group.

 

Acquisition update

 

We have now made two acquisitions and are making good progress in helping them develop to take full advantage of market opportunities.  In May, we completed the acquisition of MMT, the award-winning UX, design and build business. This came after our first investment in leading media planning and buying business agenda21, completed in November 2015. Both transactions involved reverses with associated longer lead times and higher costs than we will target on average. We are confident we will see our economics improve markedly as we build on our platform with each new acquisition, largely because the central function has now been built and will be able to support a considerably larger group going forward.

 

We continue to meet many interesting businesses and as soon as our multiple conversations with potential partners reach the appropriate stage we will of course share details with the market. We are cash positive following the recent fundraising and so have the ability to complete a modest acquisition without recourse to shareholders. In time we will progress to acquiring more ambitious targets, such as some we are already identifying, assuming appropriate levels of shareholder support based on the quality of the businesses and the acquisition multiples.

 

Partner company development

 

Both agencies are very successful and respected but businesses can reach natural limits to growth without knowing how to develop beyond them. I act as Chairman of every partner company brought into the group for the first twelve months, with Robin and Ian also joining the Board, allowing us to bring our insight, experience and networks to bear. The Be Heard platform allows us to help agencies keep developing to scale up and win more business.

 

We have not yet existed a full year as a group, and while we have shared in the inevitable market anxiety caused by the EU referendum result, we are pleased with our progress to date as summarized for each business below.

 

We have freed the founders at agenda21, Pete Robins and Rhys Williams, through organisational changes, which have permitted the agency to achieve a very encouraging surge in new business, adding SEO from Vodafone alongside becoming the lead digital agency for Domestic and General and winning a number of other new clients including Wiltshire Farm Foods, Net Wealth and Mr & Mrs Smith.  Expenditure on digital advertising now accounts for more than half of UK advertising and agenda21 is exceptionally well positioned to benefit from the continuing associated growth in digital media budgets as well as any market disruption resulting from the ANA (US Association of National Advertisers) investigation into digital media buying practices. agenda21's methods make it better able than many competitors to show where the adverts it serves are, which, underpinned by constant dialogue with clients, creates greater overall transparency.

 

We have more recently started to help MMT shape its plans for growth. MMT has been a part of the group for just four months so we will be able to provide a more substantive update when we next report. Led by co-founders Ben Rudman and James Canning, the business excels in architecting, designing and building bespoke websites and applications that deliver outstanding user experiences. This business has also seen a number of good quality client wins, including BDO, Centaur Media, Shaw Trust, Prospects Education and Bureau van Dijk, showing the fundamental quality of its work. While two clients delayed projects immediately after the EU referendum result was announced, business confidence appears to have stabilised and based on the number of recent client and new business wins, we are comfortable with our expectations for the business for the full year.

 

MMT performed strongly in the 2016 RAR Digital Awards, as voted for by clients, winning Best Web Software Development Agency for the 3rd year running and Best Web Development Agency and Best Analytics Agency for the 2nd year. It also moved up the rankings in the Econsultancy Top 100, placing it among the highest listed Design and Build agencies.

 

We are also seeking to maximise opportunities and leverage shared knowledge and resources across the Group. In the four months that both agenda21 and MMT have been part of Be Heard we have made good headway in planning their future development by collaboration. We have set up an Operational Board, composed of Pete Robins and Rhys Williams from agenda21; Ben Rudman and James Cannings from MMT; and Peter Scott, Robin Price and Ian Maude from Be Heard, as well as a separate team to co-ordinate business development activity and increase cross-fertilisation. This team will make Group-level introductions, strengthen relationships with intermediaries and seek cross-group referrals. The first clients have started working with both agencies and are benefiting from knowledge sharing between them.

 

Strategy and Outlook

 

Be Heard is at the beginning of a buy and build journey that, with continued support from our shareholders, will enable us to create a significant mid-sized digitally centric group operating at the crossroads of marketing, e-commerce and technology.

 

We remain of the view that by connecting the right partner companies in a tangible and meaningful way we will deliver significant value add to clients and stakeholders alike. This is core to our vision and mission.

 

Not only have we brought two outstanding partner companies into the Group but their shareholders have aligned their interests with ours by becoming significant shareholders in Be Heard.

 

Our aim, in the months and years ahead, is to increase Be Heard's breadth and depth by bringing together carefully targeted partners whose skill sets and business acumen will expand the range of services and benefits for clients within this rapidly evolving market place.

 

As we add more agencies, the benefit of the economics inherent in our model will really start to show. The costs of the central platform will change little but the benefits it brings will be applied to more agencies, which will be high quality, established businesses that Be Heard can help scale quickly. We will continue to pay fair prices to ambitious founders and give them the opportunity through equity in the company to benefit from the growth Be Heard will help them achieve. This structure and growth will make the initial prices paid win-win for all stakeholders.

 

Beyond any further implications that Brexit may yet have, the Board does not consider that the risks facing the Group have materially changed from those identified in the 2015 Annual Report.

 

We look forward to announcing our next acquisition to shareholders, in all probability a modest but relevant high quality addition in one of the four strategic pillars we have not addressed to date.

NOTES TO THE INTERIM REPORT

for the six months ended 30th June 2016
 

1.     Corporate information

 

The interim consolidated financial statements of the group for the period ended 30 June 2016 were authorised for issue in accordance with a resolution of the directors on 14th September 2016. Be Heard Group plc is a Public Limited Company listed on AIM, registered in England and Wales and domiciled in the UK.

 

The interim consolidated financial statements do not comprise statutory accounts within the meaning of section 434 of the Companies Act 2006, and should be read in conjunction with the 2015 annual financial statements. The statutory audited accounts for the year ended 31 December 2015 have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies in England and Wales. The auditors' report on these accounts was unqualified and did not contain statements under section 498 of the Companies Act 2006.

 

2.     Statement of Accounting policies

 

2.1  Basis of Preparation

The interim consolidated financial statements of the group for the period ended 30 June 2016 have been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 'Interim Financial Reporting' as adopted by the European Union.

 

The interim consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and disclosures required in the annual financial statements, and should be read in conjunction with the group's annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2015, which were prepared in accordance with IFRS's as adopted by the European Union.

 

The directors are satisfied that, at the time of approving the consolidated interim financial statements, it is appropriate to continue to adopt a going concern basis of accounting.

 

2.2  Accounting Policies

The accounting policies adopted in the preparation of the interim consolidated financial statements are consistent with those followed in the preparation of the group's annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2015.

 

The principal accounting policies adopted in the preparation of the financial statements are set out below.  The policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless otherwise stated.

 

These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, International Accounting Standards and Interpretations issued by the International Accounting Standards Board as adopted by the European Union ("IFRSs") and with those parts of the Companies Act 2006 applicable to companies preparing their accounts under IFRSs.  The consolidated financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention.

 

Standards and amendments and interpretations to published standards not yet effective

 

Certain new standards, amendments and interpretations to existing standards have been published that are mandatory for the group's accounting periods beginning on or after 1st July 2016 or later periods and which the group has decided not to adopt early are:

 

IFRS 9 Financial Instruments (effective for accounting periods on or after 1st January 2018)

 

IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (effective for accounting periods beginning on or after 1st January 2018)

 

IFRS 16 Leases (effective for accounting periods beginning on or after 1st January 2019)

 

Amendments to IAS 7 Statement of Cashflows (effective for accounting periods beginning on or after 1st January 2017)

 

Amendments to IFRS 2 Share Based Payments (effective for accounting periods on or after 1st January 2018)

 

Amendments to IAS 12 Income Taxes (effective for accounting periods on or after 1st January 2017)

 

The implementation of these standards is not expected to have any material effect on the Group's financial statements, with the exception of IFRS 16. The impact that the implementation of IFRS 16 will have on the financial statements is currently being assessed.
