UK industrial software firm Aveva eyes $100 million of new revenue from OSIsoft

·1-min read

(Reuters) - British industrial software firm Aveva reported a 10% jump in April-May revenue on Thursday and laid out new five-year targets, including revenue gains of at least $100 million from its $5 billion purchase of OSIsoft.

Aveva, which will present the targets to investors later in the day, said it made a "good start" to the new financial year that began in April, as business activity picks up after disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

It plans to derive new revenue from OSIsoft - which makes software that captures data from ships, chemical boilers, power plants and other facilities across industries - by cross-selling its products to OSIsoft customers and through an international expansion.

The FTSE 100 firm said it was targeting revenue growth at a compound annual rate of 10% by fiscal 2026, with recurring revenue contributing at least 80% to the total, up from roughly 68% currently.

The company is also targeting margins of at least 35% on adjusted earnings before interest and taxes, it said.

More businesses buying cloud- and subscription-based software would boost recurring revenue, Aveva said in a presentation, adding that trends around aritifical intelligence, cloud software and the internet-of-things would drive long-term growth.

The company's revenue jump in April-May and its five-year targets are calculated on an organic, constant-currency basis, it said.

Shares in Aveva were up 3.7% at 3,845 pence on the London Stock Exchange by 0730 GMT.
