Edison update:-

Valuation: DDM confirms 520p/share

In August we materially raised our FY23 and FY24 estimates to reflect the better-than-expected FY22 results, and these interim results confirm the positive underlying conditions and FY23 expectations, which are driven by good markets, strategic progress and the strong US dollar. For FY24, we expect underlying growth but take a cautious view on foreign exchange rates and assume a reversal to rates similar to FY22. Following the interims, we retain our existing forecasts and our dividend discount model (DDM) based valuation of 520p/share.

Posted at 17/11/2022 19:06 by tole (LON:BMS) – exposure to growth in global shipping and maritime marketsYesterday's interim results from the number two UK shipbroking group were excellent.They showed a 46% growth in revenues to £69.4m (£47.4m) and a massive 95% improvement in underlying operating profits at £10.9m (£5.6m).What is more the group's balance sheet was strengthened by the swing from net bank debt of £9.3m in February this year to net cash at bank of £1.8m six months later.Earnings per share roe from 7.6p at the halfway stage to 31.8p, enabling a comfortable doubling of the dividend from 2p to 4p per share.Group CEO James Gundy stated that:"It's clear that we've unlocked great potential through our growth strategy, are delivering the performance that I promised our shareholders on my appointment in January 2021 and are well on track to double our profits by 2024. Our growing scale and sectoral diversification mean we are also set for strong performance throughout the business cycle."The outlook for the simplified group remains very positive with it looking forward to the second half of the year with a high degree of confidence in the ongoing execution of its growth strategy.Braemar's growing scale provides diversification across the shipping industry, leaving it set up for continued investment to deliver growth throughout the business cycle.Broker comment came from analyst Ian McInally at Cenkos Securities when rating the shares as a Buy with a 470p a share dividend discounted model price.He is looking for full year to end February 2023 revenues of £127.8m (£101.3m), with underlying pre-tax profits of £19.5m (£8.9m), underlying earnings of 51.3p (27.9p) and a dividend of 11.3p per share against 9.0p previously.The group's shares reacted to the very positive news, gaining 13p on the day to close at 335p.I see an easy rise to 400p, at which level the shares would still only be trading on 7.8 times current year earnings – which even then would be far too low a rating.

Research from Cenkos...

Outlook and valuation. The order book was up 10%, $55.5m (FY22: $50.0m), with the outlook for the year positive. We maintain our forecasts following the interim results and the shares trade on attractive multiples with an underlying FY23E PE of just 6.3x and EV/EBITDA of 4.4x, considerably lower than the main listed comparator, Clarkson Plc. With a forecast 11.25p dividend for FY23E, the shares provide a prospective yield of 3.5%. At our DDM valuation of 470p, the shares would trade on 9.2x and 12.0x FY23E and FY24E PEs respectively, still a substantial discount to Clarkson (14.5x PE FY22).

Excellent results, and more importantly a confident outlook statement. BMS remains seriously undervalued IMO on a single digit eps.

The market seems to like the RNS from BMS this afternoon:

Ten-strong Natural Gas desk will all start work at Braemar in November. The new desk will primarily broke EU gas, UK National Balancing Point (NBP) gas, and LNG, as well as European Union carbon allowances (EUAs)

The desk is a natural complement to Braemar's Securities desks

Posted at 03/10/2022 18:00 by tole (LON:BMS) – strong dollar benefitsIn its Pre-Close Trading Update, issued yesterday, shipbroking group Braemar declared that it continues to benefit from the increased scale and breadth of its broking operations which have achieved significantly higher trading activity and transaction volumes during the Period.The company commented that trading had been very strong with all sectors of the core Shipbroking business generating higher revenue than in the previous six months.Revenue to 31 August 2022 is expected to be not less than £69m (£47m), an increase of 47%, with underlying operating profit for the period not less than £10.5m, an improvement of 88% (£5.6m).The group is a big beneficiary of the stronger dollar and that will feed through the figures this year. It is looking forward to the second half of the year with a high degree of confidence in the ongoing execution of its growth strategy.Analyst Ian McInally at Cenkos Securities has a Buy out on the group's shares, looking for £127.8m (£101.3m) revenues and adjusted pre-tax profits of £19.5m (£8.9m), which would pick earnings up at 51.0p (45.6p) and cover a dividend of 11.3p (9.0p) per share.The shares at the current 285p look seriously undervalued.

We all have our reason to buy and sell shares in a company; after all, that’s what makes a market.

My thoughts on buying into BMS in early December 2021 are shown below; just sharing my reasoning and not a recommendation in any way:

When I first bought Clarkson CKN (I no longer hold), they and Braemar BMS were around the 200p mark: Clarkson had sound management that developed the business (now share price around £37). Clarkson has been a very well managed business yet Braemar has lurched from poor acquisition and lack of direction from a rather, now departed CEO.

Braemar has a refreshed team now leading the company with the previous head of the shipbroking service, James Gundy, taking over as CEO in January 2021, a new chairman in 2021, and a fairly fresh CFO as of 2019. Poor directors don’t become good directors so a refresh for a turnaround is IMO very important. The new CEO James Gundy does not strike me as a particularly charismatic type but seems to have a clear focus on the direction of the business.

The Bull Case:
The old management has been jettisoned and a fresh CEO with over 30 years experience in shipbroking, including time at Clarkson’s, is now in charge supported by what appears to be a competent CFO. We in effect have a new broom and let’s hope it’s as successful as Triggers Broom from Fools & Horses.

The non-core businesses which were often loss-making and acted as a handbrake on the company have been jettisoned & funds used to strengthen the balance sheet. The focus of the business under the strategy set out by the new CEO is on the core shipbroking and smaller corporate finance operations.

I do dislike nil-cost LTIPs but a careful analysis of the terms of the LTIP shows that the management will collect zero rewards unless there is substantial share price movement over the next 3 years measured from June 2021. In order for the full LTIP to be awarded, the share price will have to essentially double by 2024. I am comfortable with this.

Should the new strategy succeed then the valuation of BMS will hopefully get a decent percentage gap closer to that of the successful Clarkson which trades on a PE almost three times higher than that of BMS. A clear part of the strategy is the intention to double size of the business within four years via a mixture of both bolt-on acquisitions and organic growth

Margin: the current EBIT Margin is 8.6% and forecast to rise to 10.2% by 2024 yet if they are successful then maybe they will get a touch closer to Clarkson’s EBIT margin of 16%

Current trading in the subsector, essentially BMS & CKN, are buoyant. In the last 5 months BMS has issued two “Ahead” TUs and the most recent TU says in-line with recently upgraded expectations. In early December CKN issued an “Ahead” TU.

Skin in the game: The CEO Grundy owns just over 2% of the business & has recently bought a further 23,000 shares on 3/12/21 @ 210p & the CFO, Nick Stone, bought 10,000 @ 214p. Add to that the number of potential shares awards in the LTIP. I think they have every reason to drive the business and manage it like owners.

Any Share dilution? No, the share count has been fairly steady over the past 7 years

Dividends: currently set at a handy but not outstanding 2.5% & all being well, it should increase steadily but not IMO be the sole reason to own the stock.

The Bear Case:
Whilst the new management talks a good fight, they could prove to be as incompetent as the previous management.

What if for whatever reason there is a serious downturn in shipping demand and prices and thus commission fall.

The Free Float may not be attractive to some investors @ 53% & the spread is wider than that of CKN.

All just my thoughts and reasoning as to why I see BMS as a decent long term hold whilst we give the new management time to deliver hopefully following somewhat on the path of the very successful CKN
