Commenting on the results 1Spatial CEO, Marcus Hanke, said:

 

"The transition of the business model is well underway, Geospatial sales bookings have increased by 30% during the period, now at £5.2m.  Revenues are significantly up on the prior year, however due to revenue recognition, higher margin revenues from the Geospatial business were down and this impacted the overall Adjusted EBITDA. The monetisation of our development strategy of moving our portfolio of IP and developing a modular solution stack, is expected to be seen more clearly over the coming periods. Therefore, the full year results will have a greater weighting to the second half, particularly in the high margin Geospatial business. Our pipeline and order book are strong and we expect to convert a significant proportion of the opportunities over the next six months, as well as continuing to review the cost base. Based on the current pipeline of licence deals due to the close in the second six months of the financial year, the Board still expects to deliver growth in Adjusted* EBITDA for the full year to January 2017 in line with market expectations."

Business review

 

The Group reports revenue of £13.4m and Adjusted* EBITDA of £0.3m. Whilst the revenue is an increase on the prior half year numbers the EBITDA is lower; however, management believes the Group is still on track to meet full year expectations which is an overall increase on the prior year revenues and Adjusted* EBITDA.

 

One of the key reasons for the increase in revenues is due to the inclusion of Enables IT in July 2015.  Whilst the revenues have increased, the majority of the contribution is from lower margin Cloud business rather than higher margin Geospatial business.  This has resulted in the overall Adjusted* EBITDA being down on the prior period from £0.9m to £0.3m.

 

Geospatial business

 

Geospatial sales bookings now stand at £5.2m, a rise of £1.2m since the last period end.  Revenue and Adjusted* EBITDA in the Geospatial business are down compared to the prior period due to effects of the Group's changing business model, we have seen continued positive results from our US business, which is our key area of investment and growth driver for the future.

 

The main reason for the overall decline is due to a planned reduction in the sale of bespoke software solutions to some of our historic core clients, and a number of delays in licence sales from H1 into H2. This transition from a bespoke software solutions provider to a product led organisation has always been the business' stated strategy, however it was anticipated that the new revenue stream would replace the older revenue stream at a faster rate. We remain positive that this strategy will deliver in the medium term and help allow the Company to scale more quickly.

 

On a positive note, we have built a solid pipeline of opportunities during H1, of which a significant proportion should close in H2, including a significant number of licences.  Another positive aspect of the pipeline is the growing potential customer opportunity in new key sectors and geographies including, for example, highways and transportation agencies in the US and asset management in the UK.  This trend will help to increase customer diversification.

 

Our work with the US Census is accelerating as the 2020 census approaches. This is bringing new business from the US Census partner organisations like the State Department of Transports. We announced in July a deal with the US Federal government agency for US$1.7m, and this forms part of the US£5.2m order book at 31 July 2016.

 

During the period the Company's relationship with ESRI - one of the World's leading GIS companies - has continued to develop. 1Integrate for ArcGIS has now been sold to ten customers and there are a significant number of additional opportunities in the pipeline, particularly in the US.  Whilst the revenue recognised in the period is relatively small given the annual licence pricing and revenue recognition on a monthly basis, this is a proof point of the success that can be achieved in the market with this product.  Having launched the product globally in January 2016, it has taken more time than anticipated to get the commercial traction, although we believe this is a timing issue only and the opportunity remains exciting.

 

The Company has been working closely with leading mapping company, HERE, following the announcement of the strategic relationship.  After the period end, 1Spatial announced an agreement to resell HERE data, which forms part of this strategic relationship to provide enterprise account solutions to clients.  The order book at 31 July includes amounts in relation to delivery of sales in conjunction with HERE, which will be delivered in the second half of the year. 

 

Cloud business

 

The Group acquired Enables IT Group on 23 July 2015, in return for £1.8m of the Company's shares, and its results are therefore included in the half year to July 2016, but were not in the comparative period.

 

Progress with the Enables IT Group has been good, with a large healthcare contract for £3m signed at the end of the last financial year being delivered in the period. The business continues to progress well with further large potential opportunities in the pipeline for both the UK and US businesses, which we believe will be closed in the second half of the year.

 

The rationale for the acquisition of Enables IT Group was to use Enables IT's data centers and managed service solutions in both the UK and US to provide cost effective managed service and cloud services to 1Spatial Group's businesses.  During the period the Enables cloud solution has been used for Geospatial business, however there will be a number of circumstances where it is more appropriate for customers to use other cloud services that are available.  We will continue to review the strategy and alignment between Enables IT and the Geospatial business. 

           

Corporate transactions

 

The Company has made one strategic investment in the period under review as summarised below:

 

Laser Scan Inc. (LSI)

 

In February 2016, the group took a controlling interest in its US distributor 1Spatial Inc. (previously Laser Scan Inc.) taking the Group's total holding in 1Spatial Inc. to 73 per cent.  1Spatial now consolidates 1Spatial Inc. within its numbers.  In the prior period, this was an associated undertaking.

 

Product and service offerings

 

We continue to focus on the development of our scalable open technology, enabling 1Spatial's products to integrate with enterprise technology vendors and thus widening the Group's addressable market and expanding its global reach. 

 

We continue to work with ESRI and in July 2016, 1Spatial announced that 1Integrate for ArcGIS product was made available for Collector for ArcGIS mobile users in the field.

 

The Management team continue to examine our routes to market and the way our products are being consumed; constantly looking at ways to respond to customer needs. We have identified an unmet need for an outsourcing model where 1Spatial tools are used in-house to provide customers with a solution, rather than them buying and using our software. This is a service that we are currently trialling with a large utility provider in France. 

 

 

Building the brand and creating demand

From a global perspective the US remains a key target market for the Company. We will leverage our existing customer base in the US market across the Group and open cross-sell opportunities and customer reference to support our go-to market strategy.

 

The ESRI relationship remains very important for 1Spatial as we build upon our awareness following the sponsorship and attendance at a number of key ESRI user groups in the UK and the US.

 

Successful campaigns and participation in industry-focused global events has resulted in a pipeline of potential new customer opportunities, and partners that the sales team will look to close in the second half of the year. These targeted activities, improving our brand reach and establishing local sales structures lay a solid foundation for development in the years to come, and a healthy sales pipeline.

 

Board and people

On 20 September, Andrew Roberts joined the Board as Non-executive Chairman.  Andrew brings significant experience to 1Spatial from both a technology and equity capital markets perspective.

Mr Roberts led The Innovation Group plc from 2009 until its sale to Carlyle Group in 2016 for £500 million. During this time, the company grew to be a global business providing business services and software solutions. He has also been Chairman of Kewill plc, a leading international supply chain software business, Non-Executive Director and Chairman of Civica, a leading UK IT services business and prior to this was Non-Executive Chairman of Vega Group plc until its sale in 2008 to Finmeccanica SPA for £61 million.

 

As Non-Executive Chairman, Andy brings substantial industry experience at this exciting stage of the 1Spatial's development. Andy's has an exemplary track-record of working with management teams of international companies to deliver significant shareholder value and we look forward to working with Andy to help 1Spatial deliver on its strategy.

The overall revenues in the period were up on the prior period by 60% from £8.4m to £13.4m.  The main reason for this was due to the inclusion of Enables IT in the Cloud segment which was acquired in July 2015. 

 

Gross profit was also up on the prior period from £4.7m to £5.2m again, mainly as a result of the inclusion of Enables IT but also coupled with a decrease in the gross profit of the Geospatial division.

Overall Adjusted EBITDA of £0.3m was down on the prior period's result of £0.9m.  The main reason was due to the reduced Adjusted EBITDA from the Geospatial division however this was partially offset by and improvement in the Cloud segment, following the acquisition of Enables IT in July 2015.   

 

Each of the segments is discussed in more detail below:

Revenues

 

As mentioned in the business review, the main reason for the overall decline is due to a reduction in the sale of bespoke software solutions to some of our core clients and a delay in the recognition of licence sales.  The positive news is that the US business is progressing well in line with our investment and expectations.  The outlook for the US business is very positive.

 

Our revenue streams continue to be software licence fees, services and support and maintenance. The proportion that these streams represent of total revenue is approximately 11%, 42% and 47% respectively (2015: 15%, 42% and 43%).  The main reduction in the period is with respect to licence revenues as noted above which is a result of delays.  We still continue to maintain our strong support and maintenance revenue stream which provides good visibility on revenues and provides a strong customer base to build relationships and provide additional engagements. 

 

Costs

Costs are broadly in line with the prior year from both a cost of sales and administrative expenses perspective.  The only increase is the costs for the US business which reflect the deliberate investment in this strategically important region.

There have been some cost reduction initiatives during the period and there are some further reallocations of resources are planned for the second half which should have a positive impact on the H2 results. 

 

Cloud

The cloud division revenues of £6.2m and Adjusted EBITDA of £0.6 arose mainly as a result of the inclusion of the Enables IT business. 

The most significant portion of revenue in the Enables IT business was the recognition in the period of the significant order announced at the end of January 2016 with a US Healthcare provider for £3m.  A large proportion of this order was for infrastructure which as at a relatively low margin and has impacted the overall gross margin for the period.  The gross margin for the cloud division is currently running at 23% however a normal run-rate excluding this one-off large item is around 35%.

The Overall Adjusted EBITDA for Cloud was positive at £0.6m compared to the prior period of £0.3m, given the inclusion of Enables IT.

Head office

Head office costs are broadly in line with the prior year and are not anticipated to change in the second half of the year.

Amortisation of intangible assets has increased as result of the acquisition of Enables IT coupled with R&D spend which is now being commercially sold and therefore the intangible asset is being amortised. Depreciation has also increased in the period as a result of the inclusion of Enables IT. 

 

Share-based payment charges are in line with the previous period.

 

Integration and strategic costs in the period mainly relate to the acquisition of 1Spatial Inc., redundancy costs and integration costs for Enables IT. 

 

The share of associates' loss is in relation to Sitemap Ltd (prior year also included 1Spatial Inc.) and information on this associated undertaking is set out in note 9 to the half year statement.

The balance sheet was strengthened in the period by a fundraise of £0.9m which was used to acquire the controlling interest in the LSI/1Spatial Inc.  This investment was critical to the future strategy of the group in this key geographic market. The overall balance sheet reduced in the six months under review due to the losses incurred in the period.

 

Cash flow

 

The statutory cash flow is set out in the half year statement and set out below is a reconciliation from Adjusted EBITDA to the cash balance at both 31 July 2016 and 31 July 2015.

 

The most significant cash outflows in the period were with respect to net working capital of £0.7m and capital expenditure of £2.2m (£1.9m of this is in relation to investment in research and development). 

 

There was also an issue of shares for £0.9m which was used to fund the acquisition of the controlling interest in LSI/1Spatial Inc. for £1m.

 

At the end of the period the Company had a cash balance of £2.4m, net of the Group's overdraft of £1.1m.   The Group's overdraft facility totals £3m and is due for renewal in March 2017.

Whilst there was a net cash outflow in the period, the above summary details some of the key cash outflows which are strategically important for the Group including the transaction with 1Spatial Inc. and the investment in the development activities.

 

 

Conclusion

 

During the period, we have continued to develop and deliver our world-class technology, increased our market and global reach and cemented strategic relationships with key partners.

 

The Adjusted* EBITDA profit of £0.3m was disappointing, however we still expect to show progress in the second half of the year based on the strong order book, pipeline and second half weighting.

 

Outlook

 

We have continued to transition 1Spatial to a more scalable business model, as well as making significant investment in sales and marketing, particularly in the US market, which remains key to our growth strategy.

 

The second half of the year is all about execution.  We need to deliver on our order book and close our pipeline of opportunities, particularly with respect to licence sales.

 

Whilst there are some challenges in the second half of the year, the Board remains confident on its expectations for the full year, and the Board will keep the market updated of progress.

* During the course of the integration of the Enables IT group, additional loss-making contract provisions were identified as being required on acquisition.  As these were identified within 12 months of the acquisition, they have been reflected as fair value adjustments at acquisition in accordance with IFRS 3, 'Business combinations'.  The adjustment has been to increase goodwill and provisions by £41,000.

Notes to the Interim Financial Statements

 

1. Principal activity

 

1Spatial plc is a public limited company which is listed on the AIM London Stock Exchange and is incorporated and domiciled in the UK.  The address of the registered office is 40 Dukes Place, London, EC3A 7NH.  The registered number of the Company is 5429800.

 

The principal activity of the Group is the development and sale of IT software along with related consultancy and support.  The principal activity of the Company is that of a parent holding company which manages the Group's strategic direction and underlying subsidiaries.

 

 

2. Basis of preparation

 

The condensed consolidated interim financial information for the six months ended 31 July 2016, has been prepared in accordance with the accounting policies that are expected to be adopted in the Group's full financial statements for the year ended 31 January 2017 and are not expected to be significantly different to those set out in the Group's audited financial statements for the year ended 31 January 2016.

 

The financial information for the half years ended 31 July 2016 and 31 July 2015 is neither audited nor reviewed and does not constitute statutory financial statements within the meaning of section 434(3) of the Companies Act 2006 for 1Spatial plc or for any of the entities comprising the 1Spatial Group.  Statutory financial statements for the preceding financial year ended 31 January 2016 were filed with the Registrar and included an unqualified auditors' report.

After making enquiries, the Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Company and the Group have adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the half-yearly condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

3. Taxation

 

The tax expense on the result for the six months ended 31 July 2016 is based on the estimated tax rates in the jurisdictions in which the Group operates, for the year ending 31 January 2017.

 

 

4. (Loss)/Earnings per share

 

Basic (loss)/earnings per share is calculated by dividing the (loss)/profit attributable to equity holders of the Company by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the period.

8. Business combinations

On 3 February 2015 the Group entered into a share purchase agreement to acquire 47% of US distributor Laser Scan Inc. ("LSI"), the US-based provider of spatial data solutions for cash consideration of US$2.25m (£1.5m).

 

On 29 February 2016, the Group exercised its call option to acquire a further 26% of LSI for US$1.3m (£0.9m), payable in cash, taking the Group's total holding in LSI to 73%.  LSI was subsequently renamed 1Spatial Inc.  1Spatial Inc. is the sole distributor of 1Spatial geospatial products and solutions across the Americas, which includes significant contracts with the US Census Bureau.  The acquisition strengthens 1Spatial's position within the US market, which is a significant opportunity for the Group and will be a key area focus for this financial year.

 

As part of the agreement signed on 3 February 2015, the Group has the right to acquire the remaining 27% of 1Spatial Inc. from 1 February 2017.

Note 1: Sitemap Ltd was acquired on 30 January 2015, and brings a new, although complementary, opportunity to the Group in its potential to generate revenue from data services.

Note 2: 1Spatial Inc. - the sole US-based distributor of 1Spatial geospatial products and solutions across the Americas - was acquired on 3 February 2015 by 1Spatial Holdings Limited (a wholly-owned subsidiary of 1Spatial plc) to provide 1Spatial with long-term security of its Americas distribution channel, and ensure continuity of service to key customers.  47 per cent was acquired for cash consideration of US$2.25m (£1.5m).

 

Under the terms of the agreement, 1Spatial Holdings has a call option to acquire the remaining 53 per cent of 1Spatial Inc. in two tranches, on 1 February 2016 and 1 February 2017, for total deferred consideration of US$2.55m, payable in cash or satisfied by the issue of new ordinary shares in 1Spatial.  If this option is not exercised, the seller has the right to buy back the holding for US$1.125m, being 50 per cent of the original consideration.

 

On 29 February 2016, the Group exercised its call option to acquire a further 26% of 1Spatial Inc. for US$1.3m (£0.9m), payable in cash, taking the Group's total holding in 1Spatial Inc. to 73 per cent (note 8).
