wexboy: 2016 – The Great Irish Share Valuation Project (Part II): Company: Total Produce (TOT:ID) Last TGISVP Post: Here (former holding, also see here & esp. here) Market Cap: EUR 538 M Price: EUR 1.69 For such a dull stock originally, Total Produce has had an incredible run…actually quadrupling in the last 3-4 years! All despite the fact its fundamentals haven’t really changed – management continues to make 1-2 acquisitions a year (generally buying a 35-65% stake), adjusted EBITA margins remain in the 1.8-1.9% range, and earnings continue to grow at an average 9% clip in the last few years. Fortunately, I managed to capture a major portion of this revaluation…and to enjoy seeing so many investors only become interested after the stock doubled/tripled!? [Tom Claugus of GMT Capital (one of Jack Schwager’s new Market Wizards) has been building a 9% stake since late-2014, while Daniel Gladis of Vltava Fund now lists it as a top 5 position after (presumably) building his stake since late-2013]. But TOT management really takes the cake here: They finally pulled the trigger on a €20 million share buyback towards the end of last year…yup, I kid you not, the buyback actually came AFTER the share price quadrupled!?! And no, it’s not like there was some kind of prior financial constraint – management actually wallowed in €100 million+ of surplus cash for the past few years. Granted, I always had a pretty dim view of TOT’s capital allocation strategy anyway…but this must surely be the stupidest management decision I’ve seen in a long time. Anyway, FY-2015 results confirm a 1.9% adjusted EBITA margin – but if we allow for an average 19% minority interest in profits, this is equivalent to an underlying 1.5% margin, which deserves a 0.15 P/S multiple. And with a mere €18 million of net debt outstanding, we can adjust for cash (& investment property), plus an incremental debt adjustment – noting actual finance expense paid of €7.2 million, we could comfortably add another €49 million of debt, but let’s haircut that by our usual 50%. In terms of earnings, we can award a bit of a premium to TOT’s growth rate, recognising the underlying stability of the business (but not forgetting management’s poor capital allocation record) – a notch higher (for a 12.0 P/E ratio) now seems in order – and noting the Progressive Produce acquisition early this year & the recent trading update, using the top end of the €0.105-115 EPS range also seems appropriate: (EUR 0.115 Pros Adj Dil EPS * 12.0 P/E + (3,454 M Revenue * 0.15 P/S + 142 M Cash/Inv Property + 49 M Debt Adjustment * 50%) / 318 M Shares) / 2 = EUR 1.77 Total Produce is now fairly-valued. But there’s an obvious value-enhancing event still lurking on the horizon…a potential re-merger with Fyffes (FFY:ID). I mean, how ludicrous is it seeing two Irish fruit & veg companies (with basically the same €0.5 billion market caps) compete with each other, with both dead-set now on buying their way (however quixotically) into the North American market – the cost savings & revenue synergies to be harvested from, say, a nil-premium merger are blindingly obvious. But expecting something so rational from the TOT management team may be asking too much…we may have a very reluctant bride & groom on our hands still. Price Target: EUR 1.77 Upside/(Downside): 4% For related links/graphs/files, and more TGISVP analyses/price targets: Google the Wexboy investment blog.

quepassa: This week's Investors Chronicle runs a feature on Irish stocks. Total Produce gets a brief mention. "Fyffes isn't the only agriculture producer flying high on Ireland's equity markets. Since floating in 2007, Total Produce has seen its share price rise steadily as it's recycled strong cash flows into acquisitions to build up a leading position in global fresh fruit and vegetable markets". Page 23. Cannot disagree with a word of that! ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

quepassa: Just keeps on stealthily moving forward. Market cap now £330million. Should enter Top 500 UK-listed companies soon ( using advfn analytics) in my view. Up circa 33% year-to-date. Amazingly robust dividend policy. Given the relatively thin liquidity, the share buy-back program is very supportive of share price. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

quepassa: Excellent results. Concur . The TWO things which I also think are noteworthy are:- 1. Very generous increase in dividend by a big factor of 15% (the full year divi likely to be given similar uplift ) 2. INCREASE in GUIDANCE to top of range. The company continues to grow and to be acquisitive. We are at or around a new all-time high. The buoyant figures, strong outlook and SIGNIFICANT INCREASE in dividend, should help push share price higher. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

wipo1: I am a bit disapointed with the poor share price performance the last couple of months,drifting down on no news. Anyone any ideas, is it eurozone or just don't like a business with wafer thin margins? Wholesalers usually have small margins,although booker cash&carry seems to have had a re-rating of late. Wexboy are you still in any thoughts? p.s maybe eurozone(weak euro) no helping?

wexboy: Total Produce is cheap (P/E 5.6 & 4.7% div yield) and safe (13.9 times interest coverage) - i guess the low multiple can be ascribed to zero eps growth over past few years, but on the other hand (esp. in this market) i think such consistent/stable eps delivery at least warrants a 10 P/E multiple - btw i don't hv a lot of respect for management (except if you compare them to Greencore management...), so i suspect we're really talking about a business that pretty much runs itself, something i like also - taking another approach, i peg the true underlying operating profit margin (pre-amortization/exceptionals, and adjusted to reflect minorities) at 1.34% - this deserves a Price/Sales ratio of 0.125, but i'd tweak a little higher to reflect available debt capacity - based on latest FY EUR 2,600.5 mio revenues, i'd calculate fair value at EUR 362.4 mio - putting all this together, i would average out at a fair value of EUR 0.89 per share, a potential 135% upside from the current share price - i think value will out ultimately, it usually does in the end assuming there is no underlying value destruction - i was impressed with the 22 mio share buyback last nov (which shd improve CY eps by 6%), but otherwise management is failing on at least 2 obvious fronts: i) considering the low risk nature of the business, and available debt capacity, management shd be aggressively hoovering up small/private businesses on a regular basis (as dcc does in its energy business) and quickly doubling the acquired units' operating margins through cost elimination/economies of scale, and ii) the elephant in the room...finally figuring out it's time to reverse the Total Produce/Fyffes break-up - a nil-premium merger is the obvious way to achieve this and should easily yield 2-3 years of decent eps growth even if the underlying business remains unchanged

lbo: http://www.rte.ie/business/2009/morningrep/download/0908bloxham.pdf Total Produce H1 results are resilient despite tough consumer markets and adverse FX movements in the period. Adjusted EPS is down just 0.7% to 4.06c on revenues up 1.2%. The key elements in the results are : 1) Positive profit traction from the Dutch acquisitions completed during 2008, offset by an FX drag from weaker currencies in the UK, Sweden and the Czech Republic. As a result EBITA is down 4.7%; 2) Contributions from JV's and lower interest costs helped limit the damage at an EPS level to -0.7% which contrasts with consensus FY forecasts of a 10% drop in earnings; 3) The dividend has been maintained at 0.45c which suggests a FY payout of 1.7c remains on track; 4) Net debt has risen from €80 to €82m. Working capital movements will unwind this to about €60m by year end; 5) Earnings guidance for the FY remains unchanged at 5.5c - 6.5c. Our existing forecast of 5.3c will be rising as a result of the numbers. • TP remains cautious into the second half with important selling periods (eg melons Christmas) to be completed and given its exposure to difficult consumer markets such as Ireland, UK and Spain. Nonetheless, these numbers underpins existing guidance which implies a PER of 6.5x, dividend yield of 4.4% and an EV/EBITDA of 5x. Amid strong equity markets that have propelled valuations in general, TP numbers remain attractive despite doubling its share price in the past 4 months.

wjordan: From www.theregister.co.uk: Totalise to explain share suspension today By Tim Richardson Posted: 08/02/2002 at 11:33 GMT Totalise is due to issue a statement later today explaining why its shares were suspended earlier this month. Speculation about the company's future has intensified over the last week or so, made worse by Totalise's failure to communicate with its shareholders. Some are so concerned at being blanked they are trying to force the company to convene an emergency meeting. No one from the company was available for comment this morning. The company's directors are all at an off-site meeting and won't be back in until this afternoon. Apparently. In December, Totalise announced its intention to stop issuing free shares (done as part of a marketing initiative) from April in a move to underpin the company's share price. ®
