|Cheers fizzypop, excellent news.|
|December off with four new contracts:
Premier Technical Services Group PLC’s (PTSG) electrical services division has been contracted by North Kent College to provide electrical testing services for its campuses across the county.
Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has been contracted to carry out lightning protection works at One Puddle Dock in London, as part of a large-scale, £20 million refurbishment of the site.
Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has secured a five-year contract to carry out electrical testing at Cheltenham College.
Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has been contracted to install lightning protection for a new development at 73-89 Oxford Street, Europe’s busiest shopping street, with around half a million daily visitors.
No wonder share price perky.|
|SP certainly looking perky this morning :-)|
|New recent highs now, and seemingly moving up on every buy - back to 90p perhaps for starters.|
|Good to see the first buy today at the full 82p offer price - and another tick up.
Thanks also from me re all the contract news fizzypop. Just debating whether to buy some more.|
Just a note in appreciation of your information stream.
I have a small initial holding and it maintains one's interest in the company.
|I make that 5 new contracts in November 2016, and, no doubt, the majority of those will result in maintenance contracts during 2017. In the last financial year 88% of customers did just that.|
Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has been awarded a contract to install lightning protection to the future home of Fortune 100 online retailer, Amazon.
|Moving up but negligible volume and spread widened to 8% will deter buyers.|
|sp approaching the 80s - moving in the right direction but still undervalued IMHO.|
|And another contract:
Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has been contracted to deliver testing and inspection of lightning protection at an increased number of sites (+17) for specialist building service provider, Statutory Support Services.
|Thanks for posting that FP :-)|
Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has won a contract to test and inspect the lightning protection systems at 19 buildings for two of Britannia Village’s residents management companies (RMCs).
|...and better again today.
EDIT : not for long :o((|
|Cheers AISHAH - future here looking better by the day !|
Warrants issued as part of flotation created some liquidity this week. Unfortunately no funds.
|Cheers AISHAH, that's extremely useful. Great to hear that further acquisitions are on the cards without dilution.
Amazing that EPS forecasts for this year have been increased by 50% to the current 6.8p EPS, with such high recurring income, and yet PTSG sits on such a miserly rating.|
|Some snippets from the TMI rec from last month:
Premier Technical Services - Provider of specialist safety services enjoys 50% eps upgrades
73p Epic code: PTSG
(Momentum Investor) The support services sector has been under the cosh due to problems particularly at Mitie, which is focused on low skilled services like mainstream cleaning and security where competition is fierce and operating margins are only c. 5%. MITIE has also taken a multi million pound hit from the national minimum wage and cited a slow-down in local Government business. In such an environment, however, even the good businesses get dragged down and shares in PTSG, which provides specialist services for commercial buildings such as fall-restraint systems for working at height, electrical testing, fire prevention and high level cleaning, have come sharply off a recent high of 97p.
One vexed question we asked CEO Paul Teasdale when we spoke to him over the month was whether PTSG has suffered from the same problems but he says categorically not. It’s quite different because it provides specialist niche services, which the big players like MITIE simply don’t want to do and last year it enjoyed operating margins of 20.5% while it has virtually no local council exposure. He also highlighted his firm’s break-neck growth with eps forecasts for the year ending 31 December 2016 upgraded from 4.6p at the time of the float in February ‘15 to 6.8p now, with 7.6p expected in FY ’17.
Access and Safety div op margins of 16.7% in FY-15. PTSG is the market leader and only national designer and installer of fall arrest or fall restraint systems for working at height.
Demand for services driven by legislation with high renewal rates at 88%
Electrical services - From a standing start in FY’10 profits have increased rapidly to £2.5m last year, with operating margins a fine 24% and Numis expects profits to double again to £5.2m by FY’17.
They finish off with:
The stage looks set for a banner couple of years for PTSG, which is now eyeing up significantly larger acquisitions in view of its greater size thanks to its strong balance sheet; it has £4.5m of un-used bank borrowings while there are c. £6m of expected earn-outs over the next three years, which will be financed by internal cash flows. Teasdale is also excited about the potential for cross-selling with less than 5% of clients taking more than one service.
The MITIE shock-wave has created a terrific buying opportunity and with the shares trading on a soon-to-be prospective PE of only 9.6, they should be standing significantly higher in a year’s time.
The low PE suggests investors don’t believe its outlook is robust but Teasdale rubbishes this by noting that at the start of every year over 50% of expected revenues is already booked thanks to its spine of repeat business from testing, inspection and maintenance.
Numis has just introduced a 125p price target suggesting upside of 71%. Buy.
I'm happy to accumulate as and when funds allow. dyor|
