1gw: I tried several times today to get a firm quote at 18p to sell some more ahead of the new shares hitting the market tomorrow. Couldn't even get 25k away. So wait and see now whether profit-taking among those getting the conditional placing shares will take the share price down for a while.
rivaldo: Positive view of INSE from the Armchair Trader: Https:// Extract: "Can Inspired Energy lift its shareholders? AIM listed energy consultancy Inspired Energy is undergoing an acquisition strategy to grow the business and boost shareholder value AIM listed stock, Inspired Energy PLC, is a provider of energy purchasing and energy consultancy services to large private and public sector organisations. With a market capitalisation of £73.6million, the business offers energy procurement services to large businesses, aimed at significantly cutting down on energy costs and usage. Inspired Energy came to my attention yesterday through my usual weekly searches through Company Refs, and then again today today as a result of their acquisition of Irish firm Horizon Energy for £9m. Other recent acquisitions in 2017 include Flexible Energy Management Ltd and the acquisition of Churchcom Ltd. So, why did Inspired Energy appear in my filters? What makes them a candidate for growth? Let’s take a look at the fundamentals. Inspired Energy Fundamentals The business has been consistently growing year on year. Turnover and pretax profits are up every year since 2012. In turn, Earnings Per Share have followed suit. Looking ahead, forward growth is expected at around the 40% mark, but there’s a note of caution that comes with this forecast. The only broker contributing is Canaccord Genuity. Ideally for a reliable consensus, I’d want to see at least five or six brokers forming a consensus. We’ll stick with the forward looking ratios as they look extremely appealing – but do bear in mind my thoughts on a reliable consensus. Ok, so the forward P/E ratio based on the Canaccord Genuity numbers comes in at 9.24 times while the forward PEG (Price/Earnings to Growth) is at 0.23 suggesting significant room for share price growth given the forecast profit for the next two years. The business is being run effectively with ROCE (Return on Capital Employed) at an impressive 72.2%, which is very good, even for a support services business with low operating costs. On top of this, profit margin levels are at a very healthy 24.5%. etc"
edale: Just been looking at the UTW announcement this morning and the big drop in share price. Presumably UTW performing badly must generate opportunities for INSE to pick up business.
rivaldo: Panmure called the share price post-results "curious", and they were "baffled" by the 20% discount to the wider market when the share price was 16.6p. They put this down to (1) the slower organic growth in the last H2, which they expect to snap back this year, (2) acquisitions causing a rise in gearing, which is expected to now fall rapidly, (3) the management's placing of shares and (4) the very poor performance by peer UTW, which "fails to recognize the fundamental difference between the two companies’ different models". I appreciate the prior debate about dep'n/amortisation etc, but feel the combination of the above are much the more likely to be behind the current stagnation. I suppose one shouldn't be surprised about a hiatus since the share price rose nicely from 13p or so. The AGM is in less than 2 weeks, and interims are only 2 months away in August.
pj 1: LOL, we should be used to ''a consolidating share price'' by now!
yump: I wonder what the grand total of shares issued on takeovers is. Kind of different from share options as the former are effectively free in terms of share price. You could argue that they are not free as they are payment for the business; I guess it depends on how much you value what you've gained in the share price since you were bought out and therefore effectively how much more you've been paid than the business was originally worth.
rivaldo: INSE have been tipped by T.M.F - and it's even cheaper than they say when you consider Panmure's forecast of 1.45p EPS for this year, rather than Shore Capital's 1.3p EPS which they seem to have based their numbers on: Http:// "2 stocks with 25% immediate upside potential By The Motley Fool Feb 1, 2017 Soft drinks supplier Britvic(LSE: BVIC) and energy procurement consultant Inspired Energy (LSE: INSE) delivered positive trading updates this week. Based on such good trading, I reckon there's around 25% immediate upside potential in each share price to get the valuations to a 'fair' level." "Meanwhile, AIM-listed Inspired Energy delivered an end-of-year trading update Monday trumpeting a 40% revenue gain, a 45% surge in earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), and an order book that has swollen by 14% during 2016. The firm has grown both organically and by acquisition and chief executive, Janet Thornton said: "Inspired had a very strong 2016 in which the business delivered on its stated growth strategy... We continue to seek out attractive acquisitions and I am confident that 2017 will be another year of positive growth." "With its share price of 13.25p, Inspired Energy's P/E rating sits at just over 10 for 2017 and the dividend yield is projected to be 3.8% that year. Growth looks strong with analysts anticipating a surge in EPS of 19% during 2017." "Meanwhile, Inspired Energy's valuation seems conservative given the growth figures the firm keeps posting. What's a normal valuation? In my view, the market is being unfairly cautious on these two firms because both are trading well with apparently good prospects for further growth down the line. The median forecast P/E rating of all stocks with forward estimates for earnings runs around 14 on the London stock market. Re-rating to that level would see Inspired Energy put on more than 25%... ...If good trading continues and earnings keep increasing, we could easily see share price gains from here, and there's the comfort of a decent dividend in each case while we wait."
yump: This looks like another of those stocks that carries on in a very long consolidation, while original stakeholders, funds, folk with options from early on etc. sell out while the results are positive and then for no obvious reason the share price breaks out and carries on in a more normal rising cycle. ie. 'normally' gradually improving results give a gradually improving share price, not sudden rises and then nothing for a year. Although I haven't done the stats. it just looks like that. Shares do seem to take off quite often when the business has not suddenly changed. Then everyone is surprised. So that's either caused by ramping, or more likely that a mixture of large sellers has finally disappeared.
glasshalfull: Courtesy to declare I've taken a recent position. I've held these on/off over the last 3/4 years but the recent share price weakness offered an opportunity to re-evaluate... and it looked compelling. Looking more & more like a share with a number of ZULU attributes. They are on a PER of 10.6 for 2016, year end that finishes in 5 weeks, & PER of 8.8 for next year, despite delivering double digit earnings growth in 2015 & strong set of numbers for H1 2016. The shareprice is 1p below the 13.75p it sat at this time last year. Worth pointing out to that Inspired Energy have delivered consistent earnings growth over the last 5 years, notwithstanding positive noises over future growth. I think it worth reiterating their earnings history dating back to 2011, demonstrating strong profitable growth & a progressive dividend policy which have gone gone somewhat under the radar:- Adjusted diluted EPS 2011 Turnover £1.5m PBT £0.9m EPS 0.19p Div Nil 2012 Turnover £5.26m PBT £2.3m (+155%) EPS 0.46p (+142%) Div 0.11p (maiden dividend) 2013 Turnover £7.6m PBT £3.3m (+43%) EPS 0.64p (+39%) Div 0.17p (+54%) 2014 Turnover £10.8m PBT £4.3m (+30%) EPS 0.85p (+33%) Div 0.25p (+47%) 2015 Turnover £15.2m PBT £5.1m (+19%) EPS 0.95p (+12%) Div 0.35p (+40%) --- The interims confirmed strong growth in cash & profitability, with Adjusted EPS (+38%) in H1 & indications that H2 started strongly with this bullish statement, "The Group's acquisition strategy has delivered great results as demonstrated by the success achieved by the acquisition and integration of WPUK and STC, while organic growth momentum has continued. Since 30 June 2016, and through the enlarged teams working together, we have signed our largest ever account within the Corporate Division and are confident we will deliver another set of record results for the year ended 31 December 2016 enabling us to looking ahead into FY 2017 with even greater confidence." In H1 they delivered a 34% increase in operating cash with corresponding 9% fall in net debt to £8.1m, despite current receivables rising. Their order book also appears to be growing strongly providing further visibility. On the back of these results & recent acquisition of IBS Panmure upgraded turnover by (+8%) and EPS (+7%) in 2017 to £25.9m and 1.45p EPS. So on a prospective PER of 10.6 for the year just ending & PER of only 8.8 for 2017. 2016 est Turnover £21.0m PBT £7.6m (+19%) EPS 1.2p (+26%) Div 0.45p (+29%) PER 10.6 (@12.75p) 2017 est Turnover £25.9m PBT £9.3m (+22%) EPS 1.45p (+21%) Div 0.5p PER 8.8 (@12.75p) Panmure indicate:- "At our 19p target price, the shares would trade on 13.1x, a material discount to the market for a company that is growing organically at 10%+ CAGR, has c.40% EBITDA, modest gearing (0.5x net debt / EBITDA) and a significant opportunity in a large and underpenetrated market , in which we expect further consolidation. Last month, we noted that INSE’s interims showed a 30% dividend increase and 34% growth in its operating cash. The shares trade on a 2017 FCF yield of >12%." I recognise that energy purchasing & consultancy services won't be everyone's cup of tea, but in a current market where it becoming difficult to find value, INSE's track record and future projections mark them at least worthy of research. Kind regards, GHF
melody9999: I think INSE points up the opportunities and the challenges of investing in small cap penny shares. Since 2011 INSE has consistently grown revenue and profitability each year. They have an established and stable management team. They operate in a stable long term business environment with recurring revenues where it is recognised that over the longer term, energy prices will increase. Therefore to the commercial businesses that are INSE's customers, managing this element of their cost will become increasingly important In the meantime the INSE share price has varied between 17p and 9p in the last year! Whilst INSE trading has remained strong (and reported by the company as such).....with forecast increases in revenue and earnings .... until today the share price had fallen by as much as 50% Some investors have speculated that the short term fall in energy prices will mean the end for UTW and INSE. That view has percolated into the market. The reality is that good well managed successful companies tend to continue to be good well managed successful companies. And short of some fundamental change in the energy market, companies such as INSE will continue to be successful. So well done to Janet and the team as usual please for the foreseeable and rest assured that INSE remain one of my largest investments.
