Strategic delivery continues
Gamma’s performance continues to speak for itself. The positive trading update for H1 20 reflects a similar tone to that of its recent AGM statement, containing an acknowledgement of the current operating environment while reporting a good performance for the six months. A high rate of recurring revenue, ‘minimal’ contract cancellations and no increase in bad debts remain key features. It was a busy first half with continued demand (albeit COVID-19 affected in Q2) for Cloud PBX and UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) products in the UK. Acquisitions in Spain and the UK were swiftly followed by the HFO deal in Germany in early July and the purchase of GnTel in the Netherlands last week. Management expects that EBITDA and EPS will be ahead of consensus for the year. We note the strong momentum in the business but, as we are at the upper end of the consensus range, we leave our estimates unchanged at present.
