For the six months to 31 October 2022, Cohort plc reported a strong performance: revenue was up 29%YoY to £77.5m; an operating profit (adj.) of £5.0m was achieved (H1 22: £1.7m); and EBITDA (adj.) was £7.1m. Order intake of £88.6m resulted in a record closing order book of £304.2m. The interim dividend is raised 10% to 4.25p/share.

Absorption of working capital meant that H1 net debt was £0.6m; however, Cohort reports that as of 9th December net funds were £7.6m. Added to H1 revenue, over £80m of orders deliverable in the second-half equates to 95% coverage of our revised full year revenue outlook of £165.0m.

A strong interim performance, in particular by MCL, supports an increase in our FY23 revenue outlook of 3%, to £165m, growth of 19.9%YoY; while our EBITDA (adj.) outlook remains at £22.0m (up 13.1%YoY).

We maintain our Fair Value of 650p/share.

Cohort plc posted Interims for the 6 months ended 31st October this morning which reported a much stronger first half for the Group with a record closing order book. Revenues were up 29% to £77.5m, adjusted operating profit was up significantly to £5.0m and adjusted EPS up to 10.12p (2021: 3.04p). The record closing order book reached £304.2m and the interim dividend was increased by 10% to 4.25p. Valuation is relatively attractive with forward PE at 11.6x, the balance sheet is solid. Share price has been drifting sideways or lower for nearly 3 years and lacks momentum. Ongoing solid business performance could act as a catalyst for some renewed share price appreciation, but there is no rush to buy. CHRT is a share to monitor for now...

They were above 800p before COVID. The drop in price was purely because of that and its been there ever since

Yes. I am a bit surprised. I though if selling at 480 (first loss is the best loss as they say) but price bounced up. Volume is low
Posted at 22/9/2021 13:28 by tole (LON:CHRT) – strong order book and still going for growth this year, with bid possibilitiesMonday's AGM Update from this defence and related markets technology group declared that the group's long-term order book was now up to £242.4m.Of that figure some £100m is for the current year, which already underpins 64% of market expectations for the year to end April 2022.Like so many other businesses across industry generally, there are supply chain and staff hassles, however the company expects the current year to show a trading advance while also leaving itself with zero net debt.I still reckon that the group is on the shopping list of a potential bidder or two.It really does have such a good spread of businesses that are essential to several of the sectors in which it operates.Its various subsidiary companies cover: surveillance, tracking, fire-control systems for the defence and security markets; communications systems for naval and military customers; sonar and underwater communication systems for the naval markets; electronic warfare specialist data technology, digital services and training support for defence and security markets; electronic and surveillance technology for the UK MOD and government agencies; and technology-based products, research and training services for the defence and transport markets.The group would fit into any of the private equity vehicles that are popping up in the UK, the US and in Europe.Current year estimates to end April 2022 suggest that the group could have revenues of £156m and make around £18m pre-tax profits, worth 34.5p in earnings and able to pay just over 12p per share in dividends.Then going into the next year, the order book helps to kick in an extra £12m of estimated sales at £168m, producing profits of nearly £20m, pushing earnings up to 37.5p and paying a 13.5p dividend per share.At just 550p the group's shares, which were up to 722p some 21 months ago, today offer both growth and possible bid upside.

Splendid. This share price should be north of £7. Reluctant to sell Incase IMiss a bounce
Posted at 31/7/2021 12:48 by tole (LON:CHRT) – This undervalued defence and security group declared a 9% increase in its revenues to end-April at £143.3m and an adjusted pre-tax profit of £17.9m against £17.5m. Earnings in the Covid-19 impacted year were 33.6p (37.1p), while the dividend was increased from 10.1p to 11.1p per share. There is a strong order book for this year and ahead. The shares have enjoyed a quick reactionary run upwards since this week's results. Now at 579p they do have the look of wanting to grab at much higher price levels again. Hold very tight – they will be back up in the 650p price range fairly soon, methinks.
