ATG having a bad day, could be an opportunity at this level but I'm happy to wait as it still seems over priced to me, if there's a global stock market 'correction' in the near future I can see the share price dipping below 600p (but not for long)...fortune favours the brave!
Posted at 12/6/2022 10:01 by likeawalrus "Auction Technology Group is a fast-growing, well managed business at the forefront of its field. The shares, at £9.43, are a buy. " very bullish article but I disagree that the shares are a buy at £9.43 (unless one has a 3 to 5 year view), seems overpriced to me, I expect the share price to drift lower, perhaps to the low/mid 800's at which point I would take a punt.

Auction Tech Group plc (ATG) issued an impressive set of HY results this morning. Revenue was £57.7m, up 16% on a proforma basis year-on-year and up 67% on a reported basis, driven by resilient growth in Total Hammer Value as well as strong growth in value-add services. Adjusted EBITDA was £26.8m, up 58% year-on-year, profit before tax was £3.3m, compared to a loss of £22.6m in the same period last year. Management increased revenue growth guidance and now expect low double digit proforma revenue growth for FY22. Margin guidance remains unchanged and management remain confident of achieving medium-term targets of mid-teens plus proforma revenue growth and mid-high 40's Adjusted EBITDA margin percentages. So more solid growth and profitable growth. Valuation is the main cloud, forward PE ratio is nearly 37x and comfortably bottom quartile for the Software & IT Services sector. A solid, profitable and high growth business. But also expensive, one to monitor for now.... ...from WealthOracleAM

Gilts yields are rising sharply. Very dangerous for stocks like ATG. Cannot see yields settling back in this mood.

When I briefly looked at the Summer 2021 acquisition cost of Platinum Partners, it looked extremely expensive to me. $500mn for a company with revenues to December 2020 of $31mn and EBITDA of $16.5mn. Revenues and market share were growing very well but in retrospect it still seems too steep to me even given the obvious transformation in the auctions business. Am I wrong or does one just need to be patient and back Blackrock's judgement? (Let's ignore the Ukraine and higher interest rates for a moment).There are lots of growth companies still years off making a profit and on higher price to sales multiples and ATG is at least in the black and growing? I can't find any research on this company though I see three brokers cover it and all have it currently on Buy with Stockopedia showing the next two years (9/21 7 9/22) as revenues £110 & 130mn and net £24 then 34+mn. Current market cap is £985mn.

The core problem is the technology is simple and limited barriers to entry. Competition is heavy and price cutting rife.

I'm not so sure, I'm still watching from the sidelines. 2024 EPS forecast is 38.3p vs a current share price of 932p, so still trading at a >24x the 2 year forward PE... It's still on 45x for 2022. If it can get back into the £7 range where it IPO'd then it starts to get interesting IMO.

hTTps:// Strong operational and financial results ahead of expectations as we continue to support the transformation of the auction industry Financial Highlights • Revenue of £70.1m, a 34% increase on an aggregate basis year-on-year, with growth achieved in all six of the Group's marketplaces • Adjusted EBITDA of £31.8m, a margin of 45% • Loss before tax of £27.3m after share-based payments expense and charges for exceptional items, primarily related to the IPO and acquisition of LiveAuctioneers and intangible asset amortisation • Refinancing complete, with a five-year New Senior Facilities Agreement, including a $204.0m term loan for the LiveAuctioneers acquisition and $49.0m revolving credit facility • Strong cash generation, with £30.4m of adjusted free cash flow in the period and a closing net cash position of £24.6m Since my last update, ATG has announced the acquisition of LiveAuctioneers, which looks transformational. LiveAuctioneers is an A&A portal with a strong US presence. It also brings into the fold an established payments business, which ATG will be able to roll out across its whole customer base - both I&C and A&A. Numis has lifted its eps forecast by 12% to 19.1p for the current year to end September. For the following year, eps rises 25% to 26.8p. Keep buying.

ATG, tipped in SCSW, the share price having gone up this morning, I thought I'd experience the platform by bidding in an on-line auction today. I am familiar with using on-line and room-based auctions, both for property (real estate) and chattels. To register on I entered my contact details, also required to provide my credit card details. It wasn't made clear at the outset why I needed to provide the card details when I hadn't actually bought anything at that stage but after registration I read that it's a financial check: even so, the thought of my card details "lying around" on their system was worrying so I've deleted the card. After completing the registration, including verification, I searched for something to buy, I used to collect old postcards so as that's a market I've knowledge of I browsed the few upcoming lots. This is where it got confusing. Having found a lot I wanted to bid for, I entered my maximum bid. My maximum comfortably exceeded what seemed to be an existing bid from someone else. Next, I visited the auctioneer's site (via a link on TSR site) where I had to register my details there. I entered my TSR password and that got me a confirmation from the auctioneers. I selected the lot in the catalogue and placed an online bid in readiness. Thinking perhaps I shouldn't have placed another bid, I emailed the auctioneer to check that i wouldn't be bidding against myself. I didn't get a reply. The auction was this morning starting at 10am and just over an hour later the auctioneer got to my lot. By then the information indicated that the highest bid in anticipation was about £20 below my maximum bid so I increased my maximum on the auctioneer's website. My bid was successful, paying about £20 less than my increased maximum. I then contacted the auctioneer direct to ask how it worked from now on. The short answer is that the auctioneers have invoiced me for the total payment including the buyer's premium and will be sending me a revised invoice shortly for the cost of sending the item to me. The payment, however, is not made to TSR but direct to the auctioneer. I asked the auctioneer why I needed to provide my card details to TSR and they didn't seem to know, or rather I didn't understand what they said. Overall, I found the requirement to provide my credit card details to TSR merely to register as unnecessary given that the actual payment for a successful bid is direct to the auctioneer. On TSR FAQs sentences that start with 'don't worry' I find amateurish, but that's just me. On the strength of my experience and adverse comments on TrustPilot I am not going to buy shares in ATG. The adverse comments on TP are mostly from experienced buyers who are critical of the increase in buyer's premium. ATG's stock response is to justify the increase in terms of expenditure on improving the platform, etc but why should buyers be expected to pay for that. Also, as anyone can browse TSR without registering and then visit the auctioneers' sites direct and register with that particular auctioneer there doesn't seem to be any point in going via ATG. Currently, ATG is capitalised at £958M which seems a lot for a low barriers for entry business. Also it is not really a business - except in the context of helping in exchange for money - because really all ATG is doing is latching onto other businesses (ie, auction houses) that are doing all the hard work and via the internet are probably more than capable of building substantial mailing lists of prospective buyers without having to add more to buyer costs via the premium.
