3rd eye: Article from ample on DIA. Dialight tipped for rapid recovery By Lee Wild | Mon, 27th February 2017 - 13:25 Dialight tipped for rapid recovery A series of crippling profits warnings blighted chief executive Michael Sutsko's early days in charge at LED lighting specialist Dialight (DIA), but his three-year strategic plan has had early successes and these full-year results are strong. They're so good, in fact, that house broker Investec Securities no longer believes the shares deserve to trade at a discount to peers, triggering a 26% hike in its price target. "Phase one of the plan, to rebuild our operating model, is largely complete," said a confident Sutsko Monday. "Phase two of the plan - growth initiatives to capture the long-term opportunity in LED lighting - is underway, and on track to deliver against our strategic plan." These corporate initiatives never come cheap, of course, and Sutsko's masterplan has wiped £16.4 million from Dialight's bottom line. "Operating model changes" include restructuring costs and impairment charges. It also covers over £5 million of redundancy costs as Dialight shifts UK production from Newmarket to US manufacturing partner Sanmina, and scales down its Mexican facility. The company made a loss before tax of £3.8 million in 2016, similar to the year before. Add back one-offs and it's a different story, however. Dialight doubled underlying operating profit to £13.1 million, giving underlying earnings per share (EPS) of 26.9p. That's on revenue of £182 million, up 13% which, admittedly, received a significant boost from translation of hefty dollar earnings back into weak pounds - Dialight made 71% of group sales in North America in 2016, up 20% year-on-year. Only 6% of revenue is generated in the UK. Operating profit received a £1.5 million currency boost. Strip out the currency effect and Dialight's top line grew by a more modest 2%. Dialight said 16 months ago it was targeting annual revenue growth of over 25% by the end of 2018. An operating profit margin at the core lighting division nudging 10% is also well on the way to achieving the 15% target, Sutsko tells Interactive Investor. Investec analysts Michael Blogg and Chris Dyett is convinced enough with the transformation to restate its earnings recovery profile, although it urges an element of caution given this is still early in the new financial year. "In view of the excellent execution of the strategy so far, we have eliminated from our valuation the discount (formerly 15%) to peers' average 2017e-19e EV/EBITDA ratios," write the pair. "Our target price rises by 26% [from 850p to 1,070p] on peers' rerating and the increasing cash resources, and we reiterate 'buy'." Sensible move That's a sensible move. However, the market has been pricing in better times for a number of months, encouraged by a series of regular confidence-building progress updates. Indeed, Dialight's share price has already more than doubled to a three-year high since bottoming out at below 400p a year ago, its lowest since summer 2010. The shares now trade on an EV/EBITDA ratio for 2017 of 11.3, dropping to 7.7 for 2018. And, on Investec's estimates for adjusted EPS of 35.4p this year and 59.7p a year later, the price earnings (PE) ratio is 27 times, dropping to 16 in 2018. Dialight shares have recently pulled back following a test of technical resistance at around 1,025-1,030p, which is unsurprising. Hit those achievable growth targets and there's good reason to believe in further recovery, though perhaps not at the pace investors have been used to in recent months.
dangersimpson2: Sadly I have no great insight into the short term movements of the share price. What I will say is that if you view the last 6 years results on the Stockopedia StockReport and ignore the share price movements you see a company that has managed to generate modest revenue growth and pretty much no profit growth even if you exclude the bad 2015/2016 years as anomalies. Generally this means that the company is operating in increasingly competitive markets. They are not a consumer business but one only has to look at the LED lights available on Amazon from Chinese manufacturers to know that the Dialight product itself has little to no sustainable competitive advantage beyond their distribution networks. That their turnaround plan is essentially cost saving and manufacturing efficiency tells you that this is now a low margin sector and should be priced as such. It is the classic case of the returns from new technology going to the consumers (& environment?) and not the companies creating the technology. If they remain in the same sector with increasing sales but declining margins then something around the £2 would seem a reasonable fair value to me after the business has completed it's turnaround.
dangersimpson2: The board continues to target underlying EBIT growth for the Group's full year performance. I agree it's almost impossible to get an accurate steer from that statement. The only thing we can do is to compare to FY15. Underlying EBIT for 2015 was £6.1m. Given that they are only 'targeting' growth not 'confident' of it I would expect them to have a poor first half and only deliver a marginal increase for the full year. Say £6.5m. This would be a big miss on the 23p EPS 2016 consensus. The 2015 results suggest they will have a minimum £12m of exceptional costs in 2016 so reported figures will be another loss and debt will increase to say £10m. With the market cap at £182m they would be on a fwd underlying EV/EBIT of c.30x. Given that a struggling company would normally trade on 6x EV/EBIT or less then based on today's trading statement the share price would seem to have a long way to drop to reflect current trading. A recovery is forecast in 2017 but even then the company would be on a high mid-teens EV/EBIT multiple. How confident should we be of 2017 if they miss on a modest recovery in 2016?
sharw: There is a forecast for LPA of EPS 1.5p this year and 4.7p next year. The current share price is 91p so forward P/Es are 60.7 and 19.4. Hardly single digit!
ali47fish: can poeple here try to write some more informative , useful posts- as in investor i prefer any comment linked to what the share price is doing! i read so many of thse and i get frustated with some of the comments which are unhelpful- anyway another institution- shroders have increased their holding
bountyhunter: yes I did consider that, but on the other hand with a new chief exec just appointed it could be a case of get all the bad news out in one go, from your link: "Mr Sutsko may also have decided to do a ‘kitchen sink’ update. By getting all the bad news out at the start of his tenure, he should improve his chances of delivering growth and a rising share price from now on."
jeffian: I haven't read the full presentation but are you confusing p/e (Price/Earnings ratio) with eps (Earnings per share) as I see he said this: "This has resulted in a basic EPS of 10.5 pence, compared against 12.8 pence for 2013. - See more at: hxxp://"? At the current share price, a PER of 10.5 would be equivalent of 84p earnings per share. Is this really what they are forecasting?
dewtrader: Wonder how brazil is going Dialight expands into Brazil through joint venture 25/04/2013 Post a Comment Share on emailEmail Print Friendly FTSE 250-listed lighting provider Dialight has reported that it has established Dialight Brasil Participacoes(Dialight Brasil), a joint venture with Laércio Pereira. The group, which already operates in the UK, US, Denmark, Germany and Mexico, reported that Dialight Brasil would be responsible for the promotion and sale of Dialight industrial and hazardous area lighting products in the Mercosul region of Latin America. Pereira, who is a Brazilian citizen, will join Dialight as Chief Executive Officer of Dialight Brasil with a 25% stake in the company. The group reported that it would also add an assembly plant in Brazil in the second half of 2013 and the company said that it expects to include local content to the fixtures manufactured in Brazil in order to provide an additional benefit to companies that need to comply with related local regulations. Roy Burton, Group Chief Executive Officer of Dialight Brasil, commented: "The new local presence in Brazil paves the way for Dialight to penetrate new key market opportunities in Brazil's expanding oil, gas and petrochemical industries. It brings us closer to our growing customer base in South America, while growing our global presence." Laércio Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of Dialight Brasil, said: "It is an exciting time for LED lighting in Brasil and Dialight is well positioned to supply its industry leading fixtures in the most demanding environments." Dialight's share price was up 0.72% to 1,255p at 09:12 on Thursday. MF
connor23: Shanklin, I think DIA's USP has been with innovation within LED lighting. I presume this confers some pricing power, but I look forward to seeing full year results to get a good look at the figures and confirm. I remembered the RNS from earlier in the year which touches on this. I am taking a view that the issues with the other side of the business are a 'blip' (which they have been pretty negative on all year so the issues today don't surprise me), and that the lighting side will continue its rapid growth. I think the story and bull mkt are strong enough to see a recovery in the share price, and hopefully Dialight can get back on track this year. Dialight Announces Next Generation 20-Year Power Supply for LED Lighting Fixtures Date : 25/02/2013 @ 15:01 Source : PR Newswire (US) Stock : Dialight (DIA) Quote : 641.0 -202.0 (-23.96%) @ 13:05 HOME » LSE » LSE » Dialight share price Dialight Announces Next Generation 20-Year Power Supply for LED Lighting Fixtures PrintAlert Dialight (LSE:DIA) Historical Stock Chart 1 Year : From Jan 2013 to Jan 2014 FARMINGDALE, N.J., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today announced its innovation program has developed an industry leading solid state power supply with an expected life of 20 years. Dialight's new power supply technology guarantees long-life performance even in the most demanding applications. "Dialight has once again set the bar with our latest power supply design, providing our customers with reliable and efficient illumination for up to two decades in the harshest environments around the world," said Roy Burton, Dialight's Group Chief Executive. "Unexpected lighting failures and frequent bulb changes will become a thing of the past." The new power supply will debut on the company's award winning LED High Bay products for industrial and hazardous locations in Q2-2013 and will be integrated into additional Dialight fixture families this year. Superior Innovation Dialight's in-house power supply development has already proven to be a significant benefit for its customers resulting in LED lighting fixtures with superior lumen-per-Watt efficiency, high power factor, low THD, various input supply options and high transient surge protection. With full quality control over every component within the electronic system, Dialight's designs are based on topologies and design techniques developed over several years. Efficiency and Lifetime With a power supply efficiency increase of 7% from previous designs, Dialight's new 20-year power supply will initially improve fixture lumen-per-Watt efficiency to over 110 lm/W surpassing competing LED fixtures and traditional lighting technologies alike. Compared to conventional HID lighting fixtures with bulbs that last 2 years between changes and which often fail unexpectedly due to extreme temperatures and shock or vibration, the new Dialight 20-year power supply will offer a tremendous total cost of ownership savings. Maintenance can be very costly to replace these lamps in hazardous environments. Bulb changes require permitting, scaffolding to be erected, processes to be shut down and multiple personnel for safety supervision, In many cases providing payback in less than 2 years, Dialight's customers will continue to benefit from this new 20-year power supply design far into the future. This new solid state power supply design is the latest innovation in Dialight's rapid technology development program that has turned out a number of first-to-market technologies, including the first UL Class I, Div. 2 hazardous location certified high output LED fixture to achieve an efficiency of over 100 lumens-per-Watt.
tompion: Blackrock are just interested in making money for their clients but someone who holds a very large chunk of shares is a bit dangerous as, for the right price, they could hand on their shares to a hostile bidder. However, as long as the prospects for the DIA share price are excellent why should they sell their stake! In that sense they are like us - why should we (or Blackrock) sell if we think the share price will rise steadily over the next few years?
