1Spatial Plc

Trading Update & additional stake in LSI

RNS Number : 7118Q
1Spatial Plc
02 March 2016


2 March 2016

1Spatial plc (AIM: SPA)


("1Spatial", the "Group" or the "Company")


Period end trading update and acquisition of additional stake in LSI


Financial year ends with good momentum and key strategic contract wins


The Board of directors of 1Spatial (the "Board"), the global spatial software and solutions company which manages the world's largest spatial data is pleased to provide an update on trading for the year ended 31 January 2016.


Financial update


The Group has made good progress in the second half of the year and the full year results are expected to be in line with market expectations.


During the period a number of contracts were entered into which will provide incremental revenues for the financial year ending 31 January 2017 and beyond.  The Group also continued to grow its recurring revenue base and maintain strong gross margins.


Operational progress


Contract announcements

The momentum in the last six months has clearly illustrated the attractiveness of 1Spatial's solutions in its marketplace having recently secured a number of contracts including:


-       US$1m contract with a US Federal Government Agency

-       1Integrate contract for US$1.1 million with HERE USA

-       rolling contract with one of the UK's leading transport infrastructure operators

-       £3 million contract with a large US healthcare provider


In addition the Group announced a significant strategic partnership with HERE, a leader in navigation and mapping.  The combination of 1Spatial's software and services with HERE's high grade maps and content will enable end-customers to benefit from significant improvements in operational performance whilst providing substantial incremental sales opportunities for the Group.


Research and development

During the period, the Group had significant focus on R&D activities with further development of its scalable open technology.  This development will enable 1Spatial's products to integrate with enterprise technology vendors, widening the Company's addressable market and global reach.  A key vendor that the Group is currently working with is ESRI, a world leader in GIS technology


Marketing and business development

In November 2015, the Group launched its "1Integrate for ArcGIS" product, which runs on the ESRI platform; the ESRI customer base is key growth target for the Company.  The R&D investment in this area has been supported by significant investment in sales and marketing to increase customer awareness of 1Spatial, its products and capabilities.  This sales and marketing investment will continue in 2016, particularly in the US, to ensure that the Company fully capitalises on this significant opportunity.



The acquisition of Enables IT in July 2015 has helped provide expertise and capability that augments the Group and significantly enhances its ability to support clients with a full-service managed solution.  As a hosted offering, it also allows customers to pilot and adopt 1Spatial's products much more quickly than traditionally would have been possible.  Following completion of the acquisition, Enables IT secured a £3 million contract with a large US healthcare provider.


Post Period


1Spatial ended the period with a strong order book and pipeline of opportunities for the coming year, supported by the growing momentum with other vendors in the enterprise market, which includes its relationship with ESRI.


Laser Scan Inc. acquisition


1Spatial is pleased to update that on 29 February 2016, the Group exercised its call option to acquire a further 26% of its US distributor Laser Scan Inc. ("LSI") for US$1.3m payable in cash taking the Group's total holding in LSI to 73%. LSI is the sole distributor of 1Spatial geospatial products and solutions across the Americas, which includes significant contracts with the US Census. The acquisition will strengthen 1Spatial's position within the US market. 


The US market is a significant opportunity for the Group and will be a key area of focus for the next financial year. 


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




Commenting on the results CEO, Marcus Hanke, said:


"The second half of the year has continued to be one of operational progress against our stated aims.  We are delighted with the contract wins with well-known, international companies in the period as well as the continued development of our scalable open technology.  Both of these, plus our strong relationship with enterprise vendors including ESRI put us in a strong position for scalability and future growth.


The acquisition of a controlling interest in our US distributor LSI further strengthens our excellent platform for growth in this significant market."
