rhomboid: I think institutions know about BILN but smaller size & illiquidity mean they're not interested, and that is why it is valued so cheaply. However as the co generates cash and grows those earnings will ultimately be reflected in dividends and share price appreciation ..patience pays
glasshalfull: BILN I've been having a nibble here over recent sessions. Didn't realise it would be so illiquid. BILN's shares are down (-20%) in the last 12 months, despite considerable progress in the period and upbeat t/s last week. While some PIs were disappointed by lack of a further "ahead" statement - WH Ireland raised earnings forecasts by (+26%) during 2016 - confirmation that they would achieve these upgraded expectation was fine with me & allowed the opportunity to pick up stock from those exiting. The divergence in share price between BILN & peer SFR has also magnified over recent months. Since mid-September 2016 BILN's share price has fallen back by (-14%) while SFR's share price has risen by (+43%). WH Ireland issued a short update on Friday (10th Feb) that intimated, "Billington has this morning released a robust trading update, confirming that results for the year to 31 December 2016 are anticipated to be in line with expectations. Importantly, excellent progress has been made at the new Shafton facility and all of the businesses are reported to have continued to perform well. A number of high profile projects were successfully completed in the year, including the Greenwich Peninsula Energy Centre. We view this morning's announcement positively, particularly against the context of our earnings estimates having been raised by c.26% during the course of 2016. On the back of the update, we leave our forecasts unchanged (FY 2016E PBT £3.5m/EPS 23.8p, FY 2017E PBT £3.6m, EPS 24.1p). With the shares trading on a current year PER of 10.1x (a c.25% discount to Severfield), we continue to see considerable upside to current levels and maintain both our Buy recommendation and 340p share price target. --- At a market cap of £31m & Enterprise Value of £27.5m they look decent value on a PER of 10 while offering a 2.8% yield. Fingers crossed some of the SFR magic rubs off on the BILN share price. Kind regards, GHF
pj 1: steelwatch- I cannot see a Trading Update for year end 2015 (2016) but for 2014 (2015) year end TU (ahead of market expectations)they also kept information to a minimum without mentioning workload or forward order book, so I do not think we can read too much into that. ''The Group's performance continued to improve in the second half of the 2014 financial year and, as a result, Billington will report results ahead of current market expectations.'' However, I do note that 'interim' Trading Updates do usually include such information.
interceptor2: Hands up, for clarity I did sell my holding here at the open, after the last statement which I highlighted in post 199, I was expecting an exceeding update here. There is nothing wrong with today's update which was in line with hints of satisfaction with current trading, so I would think that the share price should reward patient holders here in the future. I wish more patient holders than myself good luck and would be happy to see you all enjoy a good return.
meijiman: There is an obvious contrast with Severfield where the share price is moving ahead. Sev management seem much more pro-active in terms of promoting the company. But I will certainly wait to see what Billington come up with in March.
jaf111: Maybe this might help a little....... hTTp:// Being so illiquid it doesn't take much to move the share price....either way!!!
jaf111: Interesting? / surprising? / strange? recent share price weakness in view of rising SFR share price....any explanations? Up until last month ago shares of both seems to be following similar pattern......
steelwatch100: All quiet since ebt disposal. For a Co in the same market as SFR their share price now looks low in comparison. Perhaps a trading update might help to get some interest back?
rhomboid: This is one of my most frustrating holdings, persistent undervaluation but value will out as the trading performance drives the share price rather than the other way round...
extrader: Hi guys, I'm trying to get a handle on the EBT angle, which seems to be artificially depressing BILN's share price and therefore may represent a buying opportunity. This all appears to have kicked off back in Jan 2016 with the flwg RNS : 07 January 2016 Billington Holdings Plc ("The Company" or "Billington") Trading by Employee Benefit Trust The Company confirms that it has received notice that on 6 January 2016, Bedell Trustees Limited as trustee of the Billington Holdings ESOP Trust disposed of 700,000 Ordinary Shares for nil consideration, accordingly Bedell Trustees Limited, as trustee of the Billington Holdings ESOP Trust, now holds 645,869 Ordinary Shares representing 4.993% of the total issued share capital of the Company. At the same time, the Company has received notice that on the same date, Bedell Trustees Limited, as trustee for the Billington Holdings Plc Employee Share Ownership Trust has acquired 700,000 Ordinary Shares in the Company, for nil consideration, and accordingly now holds 700,000 Ordinary Shares which represents 5.412% of the issued share capital. The Company is aware that Bedell Trustees Limited, as trustee for the various Billington Employee Trusts, has restructured its shareholding to facilitate the introduction of a number of new employee share option arrangements and any future option arrangements that may be established in the future. So it appears that : - prior to 7th Jan the Trustees for the then-existing ESOP(s) held 1,345,869 shares in the co, representing a hefty 10.405% of total shares; - post 7th Jan 'oldESOP' held 645,869 / 4.993% (significant ? as now below 5%) and 'newESOP - 'PLC' - held 700,000 / 5.412 % of the capital. The options under the 'old ESOP' had all vested by 1/1/2005 and as at 31/12 2015 there were per the A/R no options outstanding. It's not clear (to me at least) from the RNS s released recently which ESOP has been selling down (old, new or a combination) and whether it makes a difference. The major shareholders, apart from the ESOP(s), are Gutenga Investments PCC (49.9%) and Tarom Foundation (11.2%), the latter in turn owned 49.77% by the former. Both seem to be ultimately Liechtenstein Anstalt type companies, represented on BILN's Board by NED Alexander Ospelt. Whoever is behind the 2 Anstalts already effectively controls the company, I'm curious why they apparently want to reduce the ESOP stake, to the (short term ?) detriment of the share price. Any ideas as to what might be going on ? ATB
