A solid set of numbers
Jumbo Interactive (JIN) reported a strong set of numbers which were above recent guidance and our forecasts (which sat above company guidance). Revenue of A$39.8m grew 21% on the previous corresponding period while the business continued to show excellent operating leverage with EBITDA margins increasing from 42.9% to 48.8%.
Active customers rose approximately 24% to a record 438,000, while new customer accounts increased by 215,000. Importantly client acquisition costs remained steady at sub A$18 per customer.
Charity lottery sales see continued strong growth
Charity lottery sales increased 60% to A$6.1m, and the company is expecting to add at least one additional charity in FY19 and anticipates continued good growth from this segment. While charity lottery sales only constitute approximately 3.3% of Total Transactional Value (TTV) they are a high margin product and rely on little spend by JIN to derive those sales.
Changes to forecasts
Following the particularly strong new customer and existing customer performances, as well as the excellent start to FY19 with 11 jackpots at or above A$15m (including Australia's first ever A$100m draw) we have made significant upgrades to our forecasts.
FY19 EBITDA has increased 24.7% to A$26.6m while NPAT has risen 31.3% to A$17.2m. Our Dividend Per Share forecast for Y19 has increased to 27 cents per share (up from 21.5 cents per share).
There are also sizeable upgrades to to FY20/21 in the order of +20% at the EBITDA level and +30% at the NPAT level.
Jumbo Interactive (JIN) is trading on a cash adjusted FY19 PE of 17x and has a 4.6% dividend yield, both of which we view as attractive. Key upside risks to our valuation include higher traditional lottery sales in Australia, improved online sales penetration rates and the stronger uptake of charity lottery sales.
