ISA Holdings Limited. JSE: ISA

ISA shares

Background of ISA

  • Established in the 1990s as a value-added reseller of antivirus and firewall technologies, Internet Security Architects (ISA) Holdings is today one of Africa’s leading managed security solutions providers.

  • ISA’s business model is focused on working with customers to design, deliver and manage bespoke ICT security infrastructure encompassing a broad portfolio of leading technologies and brands. Core competencies include cloud, mobile, network, endpoint, perimeter and data centre security. ISA combines these with the full spectrum of integration, maintenance, management and support services required to maintain the effectiveness of security infrastructure. ISA Holdings shares are available to buy on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) with a market cap of R187 million.

Investec ISA Shares Growth Driver

  • ISA anticipates that the key drivers of the information security market are robust, with the continued evolution of threats and attacks against corporate information and ICT resources, along with regulatory and legislative requirements, presenting opportunities for sale of ISA’s products.

  • The forecast is that organic growth within existing core business is likely to be the principle route to achieving growth aspirations. ISA Holdings produced a strong set of data for the 2016 financial year. Turnover increased by 14% to R90.5 million, whilst profits were up by 17% to R39.1 million. This was underpinned by a high proportion of recurring revenues, a robust financial position and healthy cash flows.

  • White sale of products and third party technologies was under pressure, this was offset by continued success of the group’s managed security service offerings. Revenues of a recurring nature (such as product subscription sales and managed security services) increased by 18% to R62.6 million, representing 69% of total revenue.

  • Shareholders enjoyed an impressive 32% increase in income attributable to shareholders, with earnings per share increasing by 36% to 12.2 cents and ISA Holdings share price increasing strongly.

  • Effective capital allocation and cash management processes have also allowed for healthy cash balances of R19.3 million, illustrating the cash-generative nature of ISA’s business model. Dividends of 6 cents per share were paid out, compared to 4.5 cents the previous year.

ISA Investor Tip

  • ISA Holdings shares have been a solid buy for small-cap investors, with the live online stocks chart showing that ISA Holdings share price increased from around 75 cents at the beginning of 2016, to R1.10 in August.

  • A strong increase in ISA Holdings share price reflects the positive results recorded by the group of late, and an increasing appetite to buy into specialist ICT security services. The key drivers of the internet security industry will remain robust and constantly evolving, allowing ISA to continue growing its profits as an established thought leader within this market segment.

  • Management has however identified a dramatic increase in the price of imported inventory (due to the weakened Rand) as a risk to the business. Notwithstanding this, ISA Holdings shares look to be a solid small-cap buy.
