Next Fifteen Communications Group PLC - Final Results

May 2020

Next Fifteen’s FY20 final results did not contain any material surprises, following the detailed trading update in March. Headline revenue growth was 11% and adjusted PBT grew 10%. Beneath the surface; we saw a small decline in organic revenue growth (well flagged) more than offset by positive contributions from recent acquisitions. Critically, Next Fifteen exited FY20 with a strong balance sheet (net debt less than 0.2x EBITDA) and significant financial headroom (we estimate c.£35m).

Next Fifteen Communications Group PLC - Full Year Trading Update

January 2020

The trading update for the year ended Jan 2020, did not contain any new news as such. Both Beyond and Archetype had been well flagged to the market as likely net detractors to the group in the current year. However, it is clear that the initial client losses at Beyond have not been recovered enough by new client wins to protect the group bottom line and we are adjusting our estimates accordingly.
