illiswilgig: what is the answer to my question? have I understood? Phillis - the answer to your question is - No. Have you understood? I'm not sure that you have? Probably not I'd say. Note 4 should help you there. Also note 4 from the previous 2015 results will help with respect to 'Adjustment to provision for contingent consideration'. There is also a helpful table in the Financial Review which shows how the effects of acquisitions, changing exchange rates and the lost contract affect both revenues and profits in 2016 compared with 2015. Mind you. I suspect it won't help you find the company any more attractive at the current share price! cheers
illiswilgig: I am very impressed by the way that FSJ management have continued to execute their growth plan and take advantage of opportunities to buy high quality small companies and assets where this fits into the companies specialised niche markets. I think that they are laying a solid foundation for future growth. Whilst the past may have been about Oil support and servies I think the future will be as much about renewable energy technology and infrastructure and while we maybe dithering over the new build of large nuclear plants the vast amount of work needed to clean up the old ones just keeps growing. Although FSJ is my largest holding by far I will continue to add if the share price dips significantly, cheers
roddiemac2: emerald, I never say where I think a share price will be at a specific point in the future ( many a slip twixt cup and lip ), but years ago I told other local investors that FSJ was likely to make £ 20 at some point , if they continue to execute their strategy as they have done in the past. When the shares declined to around 950p on misplaced fears about their dependence on oil, it was clear that many investors did not understand the potential here. Coupled with that, there is a prevalence of short term thinking amongst investors today. bear in mind that interim results will be down on the comparable period last year. However the next six months is likely to be very different.
rivaldo: FSJ's share price is performing amazingly well post-Brexit. Any opinions on why - perhaps to do with all those foreign earnings being worth more in sterling now? Must admit I haven't looked yet to see how hedged (or not) FSJ are.
roddiemac2: emeraldzebra, As to your earlier question about where the share price might go, I don`t try to predict that. I am happy to be invested .We have a broker forecast of 1570p., but I don`t pay much attention to what these guys say. My overall view is that the company still looks capable of growing and increasing the dividend .
illiswilgig: Quite right gucci - I topped up when it hit 950p a few months ago and am happy to hold. Article in the DT today that upto 1/3 of UK oilfield service firms could be wiped out resulting in lots of attractive opportunities for acquisitions. The firms that remain standing are likely to emerge in better shape for the future. Leaner and more efficient in albeit a smaller market but with far fewer players. FSJ cashflow from its diversified businesses (particularly its tankships) makes it one of the few firms that can take advantage (and has already been doing so). In the short term the share price suffers from being associated with the oil services sector as well as the general market markdowns. In the longer term when the demand for oil support services picks up again then FSJ stands to do very well having reinforced its leading positions in various technologies. Meanwhile nothing in the current prospects of the company has changed significantly or we'd have a trading update (now there is a hostage to fortune of a statement if ever!) cheers
illiswilgig: Not only does FSJ not build rigs they also stressed at the recent interims that their oil related activities are primarily maintenance and production related rather than upstream exploration. FSJ expects maintence spend to increase in the short term as it cannot be postponed for long. FSJ currently trading at 14.5 x forecast earnings for the current year. Fine for a company with limited long term growth prospects but it significantly undervalues FSJ in my opinion. Trouble is in the short term the share price might do anything.
illiswilgig: I don't see the share price going far in either direction right at the moment - in absence of further news. This is one where I take no news as good news. I've taken another look at the earnings forecasts. The recent results anticipated h2 earnings to be 'slightly' below last years - so certainly a profit warning in the sense that this years profits will be lower than last years. But the current brokers consensus looks like an over reaction to me. With 30p in H1 and last years H2 of 49.2p 'slightly' below would mean something like 45p - lower and it would be 'significantly' below? That would put this FY on 75p. Current broker consensus is 66.7p - which would imply 36.7p eps in H2 - that seems a lot more than slightly below 49.2p? But that could just be blind optimism on my part so I looed at the perfomance of each division. My own estimate of earnings in each division for H2, with growth in tankships, specialised technical and marine support 'returning to growth' and offshore oil stabilised is 42p in H2 and FY of 72p which is just in at the upper end of the range that Rivaldo quotes. That puts FSJ on a P/E of 15.3 at the current price more if you take the lower end of the forecast P/E. It's somewhat expensive if you view it a specialist technical services company with a large exposure to oil. But the management team has a proven record of steering the company into higher margin niches in growing areas and exiting less profitable areas. I think the perception of the company as heavily exposed to oil is wrong and creates an overly negative view of the companies prospects which will keep the share price depressed in the short term. Offshore oil now accounts for only around 20% of profits likely in h2 - though this could recover swiftly with an upturn in maintenance and support work. Meanwhile the company is a leader in it's niche areas and has been taking the opportunity to buy assets at good value in the recent downturn. With 3 divisions growing, acquisitions in technical services and marine support I can see a small upwards rerating possible with estimates rising for FY 2016 I doubt it will happen in the short term, but with announcements on major contracts possible it's hard to time - and I'm useless at timing anyway so I'm happy to hold, including the ones I bought recently at below 1000p, and await the return to growth, disclosure - clearly I am bullish on FSJ! I have been for 10 years or more...... cheers
rivaldo: Thanks for the comments above chaps. As you know I no longer hold here, but FSJ is a high quality company and as such is high on my watchlist. I do think posters here might want in particular to know that FSJ has been ejected from the FTSE250 and that broker targets/forecasts have been reduced since no-one else seems to post this kind of important info. It's important to see both sides. I myself am usually a very long-term investor (note my thread on VLE if you're interested!), but I did feel that FSJ was now trading on too high a rating, and I still feel that's the case given new forecasts of between 66p-73p EPS going forward for 2016 and the lack of growth therein from 2015. But I'm quite prepared to be wrong and for the share price to sit where it is for some time without falling to my target price range given that FSJ probably enjoys good institutional support.
apad: Sorry I wasn't clear Roddie, I am looking to increase my FSJ holding and so I welcome share price weakness. I am not a trader and intend to hold a company very long-term, unless the story changes, so share price weakness is very welcome. SPX is another 'stalwart' that reacted badly to news. I'd like to increase at £30. Roll on a GREXIT, apad
