eipgam: from the Alliance Trust newsletter... Inmarsat dividend to return to earth Yield still worth the risk despite growth threat Steven Frazer Shareholders in Inmarsat (ISAT) could face a payout freeze as the company grapples with investing for long-term growth versus bumpy free cash flow. The satellites network operator has increased its dividend payment by more than 4% in each of the past five years, with double-digit increases in two of those financial periods. Since 2013 free cash flow (FCF) has bobbed between $81m and $298.9m. It is anticipated to deliver $96.3m for 2016. Consensus forecasts for 2017 through to 2019 show free cash flow of $24.4m, $109.6m and $111.2m respectively. Dividends will cost the company between $245m and $264m per year over the same three years. ‘We believe that the market is pricing in continued growth in the dividend near-term,’ note UBS analysts Michael Hill and Polo Tang. ‘In our base-case scenario we expect Inmarsat – possibly at full year 2016 results – to stop growing the dividend until it is covered by equity free cash flow (EFCF).’ EFCF is calculated by adding net income, depreciation and amortisation and net borrowings together, then stripping out capital expenditure and working capital. ‘We believe this change in the dividend policy will allow Inmarsat to invest in its substantial long-term opportunities and avoid pressuring the balance sheet while EFCF generation is limited and uncertain,’ comment Hill and Tang. Growing pains Inmarsat has endured a tough past year with a patchy operating performance sparking increasing concerns over financing costs of its near $1.8bn net debt. The share price has almost halved since the start of 2016 to 638p. Headline trading showed some improvement during the third quarter to 30 September 2016. Revenue and EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) increased 5.8% and 14% to $342m and $205m respectively, although almost all of the growth was down to its Ligado networks joint venture in the US (previously called LightSquared). There has been some improvement. Contracts with government agencies have increased modestly while Inmarsat’s aviation side has seen a swathe of agreements over the past three or four months. It has been signing airlines to its Global Xpress fleet to supply inflight broadband internet access. But the enterprise division continues to go backwards as does its maritime arm, worth 45% of group revenues. The latter ‘continues to be hindered by a sustained recession in the global shipping industry,’ according to analysts. Shares says: "Even if the payout is frozen the forward income yield would still stand out at 6.6%. On balance that looks attractive even if sentiment may make for a bumpy share price through 2017. "

rcturner2: The share price here has properly fallen off a cliff.

cliffo2: I think one more to complete the Global Xpress system. More Airline sign-ups may help. Taking another look at it, the news flow has been quite good so the recent hits on the share price might be more as a result of money moving out of techs and into other sectors.

Analysts at RBC have been looking as satellite communication specialist Inmarsat and Avanti running the rule over the business as a possible bid target. In a new note, RBC’s Wilton Fry said Given Inmarsat’s lower share price (especially in US dollar terms), rapid evolution of the industry’s competitive landscape, and historical precedents (e.g., Sky Terra approach in 2009), we believe it is appropriate...

m.t.glass: Inmarsat has been recognised globally, but now it has the City's attention ".. The previously low-profile satellite company's share price has risen 9% in the past fortnight and its future looks promising It is the previously low-profile UK company that helped to establish that Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 almost certainly crashed in the southern Indian Ocean. Satellite data collected in this control room – when sliced, analysed and modelled – provided the key clues in narrowing the search. The Malaysian government has acknowledged the importance of the analysis by Inmarsat and the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch..." ".. Before this month, Inmarsat was known in the City as the satellite company with a volatile share price and a habit of upsetting some of its shareholders with rows over the pay of its executive chairman, Andrew Sukawaty. Now it is famous. There is no commercial benefit for Inmarsat in assisting the MH370 investigation, Pearce stresses. Nevertheless, in normal clinical style, the City's attention has turned to Inmarsat as an investment. The share price has risen 9% in the past fortnight..."

ygor706: Can't see how the Yanks can cut back on defence spending and invade Syria all at the same time. Somebody has to tell Obama what's going on in the Med ergo the ISAT share price goes up. Simples.

nick100: Broker JP Morgan still likes the satellite business as a sector for investors, with the UK-based Inmarsat (LON:ISAT) its favourite pick. The broker says demand overall for satellite services is rising and being driven by higher quality transmission needs such as HD, Ultra HD and High Speed Broadband. The providers are split between fixed satellites services groups (FSS) and mobile satellite service (MSS) providers. JP Morgan says it prefers the MSS side, which it argues has a better revenue growth outlook. FSS is expected to grow revenues by 3.6 per cent per year for the next 10 years, but MSS revenues should rise by 7 per cent annually over the same period driven by a 13 per cent growth in terminals and the take up of broadband. This shift to broadband from a previously voice dominated market will provide an incremental up-sell opportunity to higher usage packages for operators that have the capacity. JPM also expects revenues from government services to be a growing business for the satellite operators as governments will rely more and more on commercial satellite providers to provide their communication needs as they try to save costs. Inmarsat is preferred for its position in the MSS business says JPM, which expects the company to report accelerating revenue growth paired with declining capex. Its price target is 700 pence compared to a current share price of 572 pence and its investment stance remains 'overweight'. Among the FSS operators, the broker prefers Eutelsat to SES.
