2016 – The Great Irish Share Valuation Project (Part II): Company: Escher Group Holdings (ESCH:LN) Last TGISVP Post: Here Market Cap: GBP 31 M Price: GBP 167.5p Oh dear, yet another offensive write-up of mine: With ESCH at 330p per share (having peaked at 395p per share a couple of months earlier), I set a price target of 119p per share! Yup, we have plenty of special snowflakes out there who thought they were the chosen ones to discover what was surely an incredible high margin recurring revenue machine… Maybe so – except I came along & reminded them if doesn’t quack like a duck & it doesn’t look like a duck, it may not be a duck….which they didna’ like at all. And two years later, I’m sure they don’t like the fact I was bloody correct! But eventually you wake up and recognise the timeline & figures just don’t match the story – hence, the relentless decline in the ESCH share price over the last two years. There’s been a blizzard of contract signings reported, included some new areas of business (like e-government & mobile rewards/payments), but little visible sign of them since. The only obvious positive to report is the increasing level of contracted & recurring revenue, which should reach 50% of total revenue in 2016. That’s great, but unfortunately I predicted a side-effect: ‘One way or the other, the transition will likely present another revenue growth challenge’. And consequently…revenue today is still 11% below FY-2013 revenue. Cash flow looks better, but that’s due to a substantial swing in working capital – in reality, free cash flow in the last two years was zero. Which means we’re still a long long way from the historic 31% operating margins Escher clocked in the past. Again, we’ll split the difference between FCF & peak operating margins – which suggests a 1.5 P/S multiple is still appropriate, with no adjustments necessary for cash/debt (net debt’s actually $2.7 million): USD 22.0 M Rev * 1.5 P/S / 1.4623 GBP/USD / 18.7 M shares = GBP 121p Escher remains fairly over-valued. Unless we see a decisive inflection point in the numbers, the shares will keep grinding lower as disappointed shareholders bail. But last week’s announcement was interesting – Stephen McLeod will be appointed a Senior Independent Director. Regular readers here will recognise him as the former CEO of Universe Group (UNG:LN), which was previously a big favourite & winner for me. In fact, if the CEO Liam Church didn’t own 12% of Escher, I’d wager McLeod was being lined up for an executive post…but even his contribution as a director could prove valuable here. Price Target: GBP 121p Upside/(Downside): (28)% For related links/graphs/files, and more TGISVP analyses/price targets: Google the Wexboy investment blog.
Read Panmure Gordon & Co's note on ESCHER GROUP HOLDINGS PLC (ESCH), out this morning, by visiting hxxps:// "Whilst we leave our FY2016E estimates unchanged we are very encouraged that Escher has de-risked its FY outlook in the wake of signing the Vietnam Post contract. The contract further consolidates Escher’s position as the leader and ‘one to beat’ in the global Postal Authority market – its market share racks up with now the 36th country signature. The contract value appears to be significantly larger than we had expected and involves multiple revenue streams (licence, maintenance subscription and professional services). Also; ..."

Read Panmure Gordon & Co's note on ESCHER GROUP HOLDINGS PLC (ESCH), out this morning, by visiting hxxps:// "The new contract with Vietnam Post shows Escher further consolidate its position as the leader and ‘one to beat’ in the global Postal Authority market. While the contract value was not disclosed, usual in this industry, the deal is likely to be multi-year and involve a number of revenue streams spanning license, maintenance subscription and professional services. We note that the announcement suggests that there is an upsell opportunity. The contract was also likely to have been a competitive win, so Escher again demonstrate..."
another win- valuation must be tempting a buyer here....
Read Panmure Gordon & Co's note on ESCHER GROUP HOLDINGS PLC (ESCH), out this morning, by visiting hxxps:// "News of the new loyalty pilot platform at Saudi Post is an excellent 'upsell' for Escher. It also dovetails into our view that Escher has developed a portfolio of software and services which migrate Postal Authorities from the analogue to digital worlds. We like ‘loyalty’; as it leads to an enhanced digital consumer experience and is a wake-up call for organisations that historically did not need to think about loyalty – now they must..."
