The market has gone from valuing this company with extreme optimism at over 8bn to extreme pessimism to less than 4bn in less than 2 years. In a very difficult period, CPI has made 179 of FCF. (Tangible assets are not a usefuul indicator for a service co). Net debt should be less than 900m at end of year and leverage quite manageable. I did not like the sale of Asset Services but the possibility of a dilutive rights issue has been basically removed for the time being. This is the market leader in UK in a market with tremendous potential and has a good set of capital allocation rules which will become even stricter in the future. I do not quite understand the market reaction... especially looking at the valuation of the peers.

Got to look forward. What are the capabilities of the new management? Getting a bit of youth involved, it seemed to me. Which I think will be good. Energy and desire to just do.

bookbroker That's a fair point, especially the debt (which the division sale helps resolve). I wouldn't expect tangible assets other than cash in an IP-focused company. Their assets are the knowledge of all of their people in the design of systems and resolution of problems. It has been a typical, badly-managed UK company. With the right management, they ought to generate a lot of cash. There is the crux, UK companies are almost all badly managed. They are only successful by default (happen to be in high-margin areas). Capita's US equivalents are doing very nicely at the moment, with similar B/S profiles (as far as I recollect from previous research).

That's what the market is looking at Bak., this co. has very little in the way of tangible assets, huge intangibles, high debt and pedestrian growth, it will be overcome by the new order and newer technology with very little to back the share price!

bookbroker But, they were low-growth. There is going to be a world of opportunity in tech land in the coming years. Government etc will need to keep apace with IoT/cloud etc etc etc Lots of transformation projects in the BPO world. They just need to be managed well. Mind you, that is easier said than done with the general quality of management in the UK.

Market not impressed, selling off the Crown Jewels will not make this company any stronger!

Looks quite undervalued vs peers. Any comments on this?

Very decent results for a company which is still without CEO. More needs will need to be done on the bidding side, but the business has stabilized.

On first reading & without deeper analysis half-year results published today look alright.I expect a positive market response.

Capita sells asset services for more than expected price £888. Debt-to-equity target will be 1.8 instead of 2-2.5 after completing the selling process.Birmingham contract is also revised to run until 2021.
