cerrito: Just had a canter through these and as cfro says plenty going on... I looked to see their R&D expenditure but they did not disclose it. Glad to see they gave a coherent explanation of increase in inventory which meant that for the first time for some time they had an operating cash flow deficit. I guess they will find like EAH that China has come off the boil in this semester. I was wondering if we were going to get any hints from the new Chair as to what she plans to do with the inefficiently high amount of cash they have and perhaps she needs more time to collect her thoughts. No surprise to me that there has been a modest bounce back in the share price today after the fall.
partridge1948: Mine arrived 3rd Aug from HL. Not big volumes, but nice to see share price holding firm ahead of half year results due early September. Hope it stays that way!
cerrito: Thanks vprt for pointing us in the direction of the Q&A and presentation. First time I have seen such a detailed breakdown of sales via species...I know this has been asked for before.I saw they talked about their R&D in the presentation and was rather surprised that they spent £43k in 2020-up from £23k in 2019 but I would have expected a higher figure. They are right to flag the stronger pound. partridge1948: You are right to flag the liquidity in the shares, though you could say that is the flip side of a loyal shareholder base. I have also held the view that they are a potential takeover target...not from private equity but more from a bigger player in the industry though I admit I do not understand the industry dynamics well enough to know if there are any big players for whom ANP would be a natural fit.
igoe104: The directors have sold on several occasions over the last couple of years and the price has continued to go up.
bottomfisher: Much as I like Anpario, I feel that the recent director share sales tells us something about the company's over-rated share price. According to Stockopedia ANP is valued at 28 times forecast earnings compared with forecast earnings growth of 7%. It is trading at an EV/Ebitda multiple of close to 20 times and yields 1.6%. I will revise my opinion when I see more than token share purchases by the new chairman, finance director and non-executive directors. Perhaps Kate Allum might mark her elevation to chairman at next week's AGM by using her first year's chairman fee of circa £40,000 to buy shares of an equivalent value.
cfro: Ok then, that's Peter Lawrence sold and gone. No surprise there. Share price up on that news..
redwing1: Anpario is a very solid company producing reliable profits and impressive cash flow. The issue has always been revenue growth. Sales have stubbornly refused to move at a pace that justifies such a high rating. Maybe the very resilient performance in a pandemic year is a good omen, but to make meaningful share price progress from here surely requires a prolonged top line surge. It is long overdue.
bottomfisher: As a long term shareholder in Anpario I think the recent shares sales by senior executives confirm my view that the current share price has got ahead of itself. Richard Edwards, chief executive, has raised £725,000 selling more than half his stake, at £5.80, and last Autumn, Karen Prior, who is stepping down as finance director but remaining an executive director, raised over £500,000 by selling nearly two thirds of her shares, at around £4. Even Peter Lawrence, who steps down as chairman at the next AGM, has been trimming his stake, selling 5,400 at £4.34 earlier this month. The three directors still retain sizeable stakes: Edwards (88,396 shares), Prior (around 74,000) and Lawrence (57,950), and Anpario has the makings of a great company - all it needs is to start growing much faster than it has done to date. The director share sales make me wonder whether there is any point topping up my own minor stake at current price levels. Let’s hope that Ian Hamilton, Matthew Robinson and Kate Allum, the new non-executive directors, set an example by buying enough shares to at least match one year of their annual directors’ fees.
aringadingding: Hi all I'm new to the thread but have held this for about a year. I am pretty spooked by both Karen stepping back and the CEO selling over half his stake. Anyone have any views or knowledge on why Karen is stepping back? Below are calcs how how much additional value the CEO would gets for an exit at 800p in 5 years versus 550p, based on shareholdings in 31 Dec 2019 Annual Report: EMIs: At a share price of 550p I make the value of options held £443k. If the share price was to rise to 800p they would be worth £765k. So a difference of £322k. JSOP: CEO 'owns' 1.35m of shares under the JSOP. We are not told the initial market values in the annual report. If the price went from 550p to 800p over 5 years the cost including 4.5% rolled up over 5 years is 685p/shre. Profit is 800-685=115p/shre. 1.35m x 1.15 = £1.55m. (Actually I'm not sure whether the employee is required to purchase these shares when they are issued, and subsequently held by the JSOP, but anyway that's a detail.) Simple shareholding: 88k of shres (as per RNS yesterday not 2019). So £220k of upside between 550p and 800p/shre. Total: 0.322 + 1.55 + 0.22 = £2.092m It's not bad but not amazing either - ? If the company gets acquired he stops getting his salary. Maybe he could time it with his retirement. I do appreciate that with his sale now he may want to e.g. buy a house - thus making him happier to go to work to build company value! With regards to share price valuation and PEG ratio: If one was happy to buy a company on a PE of 16x with 7% EPS growth that is PEG of 2.3x. For Anpario if PE is 27x (=550/20) and growth was 18% (total guess) then that is 1.5x so quite a lot lower actually. So in summary valuation is ok for a growth company but I'm not sure management incentivisation is enough.
cerrito: Comfortable is a good word partridge1948 I was surprised at the initial strength in the share price given the increase we have seen in the last fortnight and the price at the close seems about right.
