masurenguy: Paul Scott's view on todays trading update. "That's a strikingly good announcement, given that 2018 has only just started. It's very unusual to see management being so bullish at the start of a year. Normally people tend to play it safe, and wait until out-performance is comfortably in the bag, before announcing positive. More detail is given on acquisitions, which sounds as if they're going very well. That's very pleasing, since this is a buy & build business. Hence evidence that they are good at making, and integrating acquisitions, is a big plus. Carillion insolvency - negligible impact expected. Healthy pipeline of potential acquisitions. My opinion - the CEO here is like a machine - reeling off facts & figures, and seemingly very much on top of the detail, as well as the overview - which is very impressive, and exactly what I look for at entrepreneurial businesses like this. On the downside, I do have an ongoing concern about high debtors on the balance sheet, the explanation for which I didn't find terribly convincing (it's high margin work, so we don't get paid quickly). Stockopedia shows consensus EPS forecast for 2018 at 9.9p. Based on today's update I would estimate that 12p+ is probably more realistic. That would put the shares on a 2018 PER of 15.3 or below. That looks quite attractive for a group which seems to be establishing a good track record. On paper it looks very good. Personally I'd like to see receivables (debtors) come down to a more reasonable level, before being comfortable enough to buy any. Although that reticence has cost me money, since the share price performance in 2017 was strong. Note that the shareholder base is very concentrated. The largest 2 shareholders are the CEO & Chairman. Overall, it looks interesting, and if things continue to go well, I imagine Directors might reduce their shareholdings in secondary placings. This is likely to be a stock that institutions may want to buy, and the only source of stock would be from the Directors. It would be good to see liquidity improve, as it's a thinly traded share, due to the concentrated shareholdings."

rogers8: EPS December 2016 2.16p Share price when announced in March circa £1.00. Projected 2017 EPS 10.8p (Glaws2 post). Current share price £1.90. Could this price double when the results are published in March which would be inline with the EPS/Share price?

simso: Last Year on 9th Jan we had a Trading Update which said: "PTSG, the niche specialist services provider, is pleased to announce that its results for the year ended 31 December 2016 are anticipated to be in line with the board's expectations". The Share price was around 85p then, so has doubled in the past year. I presume an equivalent Update this year must now be imminent, and half expected to see it yesterday or today. I sense the Market is already factoring in an "Ahead of Expectations" given the strong increase in the rating over the past year.

basem1: Just getting a handle on valuation metrics. 2 recent acquisitions add £3m gross profit, take the £11.2m and double it for full year and add 5% ish for organic second half growth and we have a gross profit figure of £26m against a current market cap of £174m. Room for the share price to go higher ?

rivaldo: Cheers fizzypop. Great news whilst I was away re the recommendations for sprinkler systems to be fitted in ALL residential buildings: Http://www.ptsg.co.uk/news/fire-solutions/riba-recommends-sprinkler-systems-in-all-residential-buildings/ And in ALL schools: Http://www.ptsg.co.uk/news/fire-solutions/fire-chiefs-call-for-sprinklers-to-be-fitted-in-all-schools/ The share price was always going to consolidate or retrace somewhat given the steep rise. But it's looking good value again now, and we should see 200p again reasonably quickly imo assuming the markets remain stable.

twirl: Threeput>> agee good hold. Good call to sell at 200p. Dissappointed like many longs that the share price has drifted down even though I recognise that the mm's role is to make a market - dropping the share price brings out sellers and raising the share price encourages buyers. I would be more concerned if PTSG were a development or mining co that had few assets and no revenue. As far as the co is concerned I am comfy with my investment here as the Co has a track record of growth, directors own a large % and there will be transformational growth in council tower block fire protection and electrical testing. I doubt the CEO forward statement could have been more bullish :- "From a business perspective, the first half 2017 has gone beyond our own expectations at PTSG. Turnover and operating profit have gained considerable momentum over the first half of the year, instilling confidence that we will be in a position of real strength by the year-end. So far 2017 has been quite unlike any other year in our ten-year history. It would be remiss of me not to reference the fact that the first half of the year was characterised by high-profile events which have had a significant effect on all who operate within facilities management. More than ever, the industry demands steadfast compliance to a set of safety standards which will ultimately keep everyone from harm."

rivaldo: Amati VCT have just released their interims, and they've had a terrific half year, partly due to PTSG (and KWS and FDEV which I also hold). Interestingly they say: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/amati-vct-plc--ati-/rns/half-year-report/201710130949555496T/ "The strategy that has been adopted of concentrating the portfolio in our more mature, cash generative businesses by 'running our winners' has played out to the extent that, at the half year end date, the top ten positions in the Company (including the TB Amati UK Smaller Companies Fund) accounted for 58.9% of the total net asset value. Far from causing us any anxiety, we are reassured by the fact that we consider these businesses amongst the highest quality investments in the portfolio and we are optimistic about the future prospects for these companies. Whilst some of these names have experienced extraordinary share price gains lately, our belief is that these are companies that can continue to deliver exceptional levels of revenue and profit growth." Here's what they say about PTSG: "Premier Technical Services Group, the provider of access and safety services, gained 68% as the market responded positively to new contract wins across all of its disciplines, including a number of framework agreements with new and existing customers and a high level of existing contract renewals."

rivaldo: I came across this good coverage in the FT from last month - reads well: Https://www.ft.com/content/f183933c-626a-11e7-91a7-502f7ee26895 "Man in a van delivers growth It is growing at 50 per cent annually, has made 22 acquisitions in a decade and doubled its share price in two years. Must be a tech start-up? No. This business makes a profit and is rooted firmly in the “real” economy just off the M62 at Castleford. Premier Technical Services Group (PTSG) is an unlikely go-go stock. It does unglamorous things in glamorous places. It provides the maintenance cradles that can be lowered around the Shard, the Gherkin and other tall buildings. It tests electrical and firefighting systems and has been in demand since the Grenfell Tower tragedy. PTSG debuted on Aim in February 2015 and last week used equity for another buy. It raised £15m through the placing of 12.5m shares at 120p, a slight discount to the 130p price. It bought Brooke Edgeley, a Manchester-based lightning protection and steeplejack company for £14m. Paul Teasdale, chief executive, says: “We do specialist services only in a good niche and with high margins. We are not a mainstream maintenance services business.” It has another 60 possible targets in a fragmented industry. Mr Teasdale says it wins repair work on the back of maintenance, so that every £1 in a maintenance contract is doubled. He also claims to deploy his “Man in Van” army more efficiently than rivals. PTSG increased revenue to £39.2m in 2016 from £25.8m in 2015. Adjusted profit before tax, excluding exceptionals, was up 49 per cent to £7.5m. Investors are convinced, with BlackRock the latest to join through the fundraising. Mr Teasdale co-founded the business with chairman John Foley and two others in 2007. He and senior directors still own about 51 per cent. The challenge will come as it grows and outside investors become the majority."

rivaldo: FYI this is how Numis summarised PTSG in their initiation note from last month, with a 125p target: "PTSG Initiating Coverage Strong growth, high returns Premier Technical Services Group (PTSG) offers an attractive combination of rapid revenue growth, high margins and ROCE. It is the market leader in the provision of specialist services in Access and Safety, Electrical Services and High Level Cleaning, yet has less than 10% share. We forecast an EPS CAGR of 19% (2015-18), but expect PTSG to continue its track-record of EPS upgrades. Trading on a 2016 PE of 11.5x and EV/EBIT of 9.9x, we think the shares are significantly undervalued. We initiate with a BUY recommendation and 125p price target (60% upside). Strong revenue growth. PTSG has delivered a 24% revenue CAGR 2009-15 (14% organic, 10% acquired, we estimate). Its addressable markets are worth around £600m, implying a PTSG share of c.6%. Its activities are highly regulated, creating both barriers to entry, and high levels of repeat business. Renewal rates on maintenance contracts are high (88% in 2015). PTSG has undertaken 20 acquisitions since its formation in 2007. We expect PTSG to continue taking market share both organically and through further acquisitions. Sector leading margins. PTSG has consistently delivered gross margins >50% and adjusted EBITA margins >20%, 2012-15. The specialist services, and unit rate pricing (rather than cost plus) lend themselves to high gross margins in inspection, testing and maintenance services. The attractive EBITA margins are generated through a combination of scale, national coverage, and use of technology, that serve to maximise engineer utilisation and leverage costs. Attractive returns. Between 2010-15, post-tax ROAIC has averaged c.42%. Post-tax return on operating capital, which more closely approximates the return on organic investment, has averaged c.74%. We think that management has established a strong track record of significantly improving the profitability of the businesses that it acquires, driving attractive returns on that investment. We estimate that the company has c.£5m of headroom against current facilities to undertake further deals."
