jeffian: I'm always a bit jaundiced about Directors' share purchases to shore up a crumbling share price, but if you're going to do it, it helps if it is a meaningful amount. £300k seems more than a token gesture! (Mind you, I was suckered into following Lord Simpson into Marconi............)
robinnicolson: Here is the Berenberg note: International Personal Finance’s (IPF) shares have struggled over the last year, underperforming the SXFP (Stoxx Financial Services index) and the FTSE 250 by c45% and c18% respectively. While FX and regulatory fears are weighing on the shares, IPF is exposed to significant long-term growth opportunities. We see recent share price weakness as a buying opportunity as we expect the near-term headwinds (FX and investment costs) to begin to fade in 2016 and beyond. We upgrade our recommendation to Buy with a new price target of £6.00 (c28% upside). Potential to double PBT: IPF is present in nine countries and the recent acquisition of MCB Finance brings a digital presence in four new markets. We believe there is scope for IPF to more than double PBT in its existing footprint, and the digital opportunity could be very large. We believe the market is focusing more on the near-term concerns, and not enough on the longer-term opportunities that IPF could benefit from. New markets drive growth: Mexico and Spain could add c£115m to IPF’s PBT over the long term, almost doubling group PBT. While it is early days for Spain, Mexico is one of IPF’s best-performing markets and is growing fast (2014-17E PBT CAGR of 34%). There is a lot more for IPF to go for as it expands coverage and increases penetration across Mexico. We believe management’s c£100m PBT target is looking increasingly achievable. Transformation for growth: IPF is re-positioning itself from a single product (home credit), single-channel business into a more diverse consumer finance business. It has embarked on a change programme, “Transformation for Growth” (T4G), which will reposition it with a more sustainable business model and provide incremental growth opportunities. T4G will deliver more than £20m in additional PBT from 2018 onwards via top-line growth, better credit quality and operating efficiencies. Going digital: IPF is developing a digital product (hapi loans) to run alongside its traditional home credit product. The acquisition of MCB Finance is a good deal, in our view. The price paid was cheap (3.5x EBITDA), it provides access to four new markets, and it brings technology and c10 years of experience in digital lending. We estimate that digital lending could be a c£40m PBT business if IPF achieves a similar customer penetration rate to MCB Finance across its much larger European markets. The opportunity would be significantly larger if digital is successfully rolled out into new markets. Growth priced at value: While FX could still deteriorate further, we believe the impact has largely been reflected in consensus now. We have reduced our estimates by 8-9% in 2015/16, mainly due to FX. Management believes it will receive regulatory approval for its restructured Polish product, which should allay regulatory concerns. On 10.5x 2016E for 11% EPS CAGR, we believe IPF is trading on a low multiple on earnings, which now reflect the large drag of FX and investment costs. We see current share price weakness as a buying opportunity for long-term investors.
robinnicolson: Yes, I agree that it looks good value...I've been gradually adding to my holding. The share price has now retraced to the level when Gerard Ryan bought 100,000 shares on 27 December 2013.
mortimer7: RNS at 2.47pm : Director purchase (Gerard Ryan) of 100000 shares @ 451.5p today. That's £451500. Very reassuring I believe & leaves little doubt of his interpretation of the over reaction & share price fall.
konkel: The bonds are trading around 98.5 so not disastrous....the share price is telling us there's clearly more to this announcement than meets the eye and someone has the inside track.....guess we'll find out in due course.
jg1882: Can't believe no one is around here....price targets range from 260 to north of £4....the share price has rebounded strongly post incumbent shareholders selling out and you have a business not susceptible to current credit market fears given its avg loan cost of well under 7% vs APR's north of to trouser for the long term imho. Got in at 186 so laughing right now.
