Company Description

Oxford Metrics' (OM) business is based around technology for obtaining data from sensors and other devices, managing and analysing that data, and then delivering it in a way or form that creates value. Through Vicon, its main subsidiary, OM is the global leader in motion-tracking software and solutions operating across four key areas: Industrial, Life Sciences, Entertainment and Location-Based Entertainment. It counts many of the world's leading manufacturers, universities, and film and games makers among its customers and users.

Investment Summary

OM's core capabilities of Sense, Analyse and Apply become increasingly important, creating new opportunities to exploit OM's technology and skills. We believe that Location-Based Entertainment, where OM is supplying technology to a number of virtual reality based entertainment venues and ventures, is just the first such opportunity. On the M&A front, prior to the disposal of its asset management software business, Yotta, for ?52m, OM was already actively searching for suitable acquisitions. OM now appears very well positioned with substantial M&A firepower and a mix of recovering and growing end markets.
