truffle: It seems from last year's annual statement that over 50% of group revenue comes in the form of US dollars and euros which might explain the recent rapid recovery in the share price
jombaston: The latest buy looks good although some uncertainty as all the numbers quoted are from 2013 (Leatherhead didn't manage to file their 2014 accounts!) Clearly the pension fund at Leatherhead was a serious burden and the firm had quite high costs given its revenue. SAG will be putting up another £1m investment along with the £1.6m purchase price but even including this the payback should be pretty quick. Replicating SAG's margins would imply £1.5m pre-tax; while this is not going to happen overnight £750k should be achievable near-term (they made £670k in 2012). Taking this into account and using SAG EV/EBIT multiples before the deal I reckon this should be worth a share price of 170-185p for SAG. This, of course, assumes the shares were fairly priced beforehand. Arguably they were cheap, so I believe a target of £2 is fair absent any further news. Please feel free to disagree or embellish! DYOR etc
battlebus2: Great news this morning with an acquistion with cash and treasury shares, also the proposed return via tender would not recieve support at the current share price but other plans will be released with results on 3rd of March. Special dividend?? Either way its good news to me and surely ends talk of delisting and allows the shares to continue their upwards trajectory.
anumidium: Agree Oregano, a decent divi would help underwrite the share price.
oregano: not alot of detail but scant comment elsewhere. Sagentia, the AIM-listed, Cambridge-headquartered multidiscipline R&D outsourcing firm chaired by Martyn Ratcliffe, seems to have got itself back on track in the second half of the year after a major US project was suspended in H1 (see here). Although the company returned to growth in H2, this was not enough to mitigate the revenue loss, leaving headline revenues for the year to 31st Dec. 6% down at £22.3m. Operating profit fell more sharply, by 11%, to £3.2m, shaving nearly a point off margins, to 14.5%. However, carried-forward tax losses left EPS 3% higher at 7.5p. Ratcliffe, should have more time to devote to Sagentia after he steps down as chairman of UK education software and IT services firm, RM (see RM enters next phase as Ratcliffe exits). He remains long-time chairman at Microgen. Despite the share price dip earlier in the year, Sagentia's shares are back trading over 95p, 13% higher than 12 months ago. The company also announced a maiden 1p a share div.
abadan2: Cestnous, I think you have missed the point. The company was offering to buy shares from any of the existing holders (institutions or PIs), by definition on terms that were beneficial to the company and continuing shareholders. This would have given any big shareholders who wanted to sell the chance to get out, and would have removed any overhang of shares. It is clear that harly anyone wants to sell at 80p beliving that the shares should be a lot higher, hence the jump in the share price on the annoucement.
cfro: 'tis a very funny time of the day to release a trading statement. Why no share price reaction? Well, apart from a lot of investors missing it, i would say the word 'slightly' ahead instead of 'significantly' ahead perhaps has disappointed some. If its only going to be the 'slighty' ahead then slightly ahead of what?....7.4p ??......then if so can we expect 8p eps? But nevertheless, even suggestiong eps of 8p would still put the share price on a PE of 11 which is still too cheap imo. What interests me most tho, is all that cash. The co could pay us shareholders out say, 10% of that and still retain a decent amount.
cfro: Noticed the share price rising fast the couple of days, so bit the bullet today and bought an initial stake of 5000 shares. Problem is, i gotta admit im clueless as to what the co actually i had better run along and do some research! :0))
hastings: Some interesting comments from some sound posters here. Must say, didn't get involved when the share price was in the doldrums, past record wasn't good and rather a complex structure of the business too. However, have to agree with you guys here in that SAG looks excellent value at these levels. Both on Fundamentals and the new direction that has been adopted. Some interesting bits below, that may or may not have been posted before, so apologies now if i am merely running a repeat! One question though, does any holder know what SAG's remaining and diluted holding is in Sphere.
