Keywords Studios 1493p £980m (KWS.L) Completion of placing raising gross proceeds of approximately £100 million. Placing Shares have been issued at a price of 1,450 pence. Despite the background of the gaming industry's general resilience to COVID-19 and structural growth drivers, the Group is expecting to see some stress in predominantly smaller service providers, which are typically single location and service with fewer clients and less able to weather the disruption. This is likely to result in an increased number of acquisition opportunities for Keywords Studios, with some targets now more inclined to re-engage previously stale exploratory conversations. #KWS

Keywords Studios #KWS : A diversified, resilient business in troubled times Keywords delivered a strong performance in FY19 (revenue growth of 30.2% overall, 15.5% organic, 21.2% like-for-like), very much in line with its January trading statement. In the face of the uncertain impact of COVID-19, we are revising our FY20 revenue estimate down, assuming nominal l-f-l 1% revenue growth, with operating profit falling to €38.1m (11.2% margin). We introduce FY21 forecasts, with games industry growth in FY21 helping the business bounce back with 15% revenue growth. The company’s FY21e P/E multiple of 31.1x reflects continuing industry growth, a strong track record and leading market position. The group prudently cancelled its final dividend for FY19, but has a strong balance sheet with €112m of cash and undrawn facilities as at YE19, leaving it well positioned for M&A.
Keywords Studios Plc #KWS announced, in its full year results for the year to 31 December 2019, that revenues rose to €326.5 million from €250.8 million reported in the last year. The company’s profit before tax stood at €17.4 million compared to a profit of €22.1 million reported in the previous year. The basic earnings per share stood at 15.23c compared to earnings of 23.16c in the previous year. The company’s cash and cash equivalents stood at €41.8 million (2018: €39.9 million).

Keywords Studios Plc #KWS announced that trading in 2020 started in line with market expectations for the full year, with only minimal impact from COVID-19 in the first two months, due principally to the short-term disruption in China that affected its five studios there. These operations have now returned to near full production, following the return to work after the government mandated shutdowns and its subsequent implementation of social distancing and rigorous hygiene regimes in the studios, as well as some work from home measures. Separately, the company stated that whilst the Board were in a position to announce the Group's audited results for the year ended 31 December 2020 on 31 March 2020, it has decided to delay their announcement in response to guidance recently issued by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Financial Reporting Council. In line with the announcement on 30 January 2020, the Board expects to report full year revenues of approximately €326 million, representing a 30% increase on the prior year or a 15% increase on an Organic basis, Adjusted Profit Before Tax of approximately €41 million, representing an increase of 8%, and Adjusted EBITDA (excluding the impact of IFRS 16) of approximately €49.5 million, an increase of 13% on the prior year.

#KWS Capital Markets Day, London, February 20. KWS's CMD last week. Overview of all services lines. The MDs of the recent acquisitions are particularly impressive c. 2hrs in.
Keywords Studios’ capital markets day (CMD) on 5 February 2020 was very well attended and reassuring. The company will continue to grow a balanced, diversified business. Organic growth remains strong over the short to medium term: for FY20 we forecast 15% y-o-y revenue growth, up 12% on the FY19 closing annual run rate (ARR), supported by the launch of next-gen consoles. Increasing scale helps to attract larger clients and raise barriers to entry. Keywords’ strategic approach to ‘buy and build’ delivers for both the company and the studios. We retain our view that Keywords is strongly positioned as the only games service provider at a global scale. The company’s P/E rating (29.2x FY20e) reflects its leading market position, track record and potential, but should fall further as Keywords continues to execute its buy-and-build strategy. #KWS
