Diploma PLC : Successful acquirer
November 21, 2023 at 02:50 pm By Justin Emerson

Based on the decentralized model adopted by many Scandinavian groups, the British industrial conglomerate published its annual results yesterday.

They were very well received by the market, and for good reason: sales rose by 19% and free cash flow by 36% for the year 2023, while financial leverage fell significantly.

Organic growth reached 8%. This is considerably less than last year's performance, but it should be remembered that the latter was based on an exceptional post-pandemic economic recovery: the basis for comparison is therefore not entirely legitimate.

Diploma is one of the few successful roll-ups. All its profits have been reinvested in a well-executed external growth strategy, without excessive recourse to capital increases or leverage.

Over the past fifteen years, the Group's sales and profits have grown by an average of 15% a year. As a result, market capitalization has increased more than tenfold over this period.

All is not perfect, however: profitability has fallen sharply over the past four years, while earnings per share have stagnated. The law of large numbers will undoubtedly make the next decade more difficult than the last, as it is likely to be harder to make large-scale acquisitions profitable.

These factors have not escaped the attention of the market, which has readjusted the Group's valuation to x18 its operating profit, in line with its ten-year average. Management seems to think this is fair, since last March it carried out a capital increase at these same levels, exactly as it did three years ago.

This acquisitive company is snapping up cheap assets – investors should do the same with its shares

Questor share tip: Diploma has bought a string of businesses without jeopardising its financial strength

I realise fund managers sell off stocks as companies go from one part of the index to another but I had thought being in the FTSE100 might actually attract buyers too. Diploma hasnt recruited Eddie Jones to boost share performance has it?

IN spite of the recent sell off, this from The TImes today"The FTSE 100 is reshuffled four times a year according to share price movements. Others in line to be promoted are Hikma and Dechra Pharmaceuticals and the seals-maker Diploma. They are set to replace Johnson Matthey, the industrial conglomerate, Abrdn, the asset manager, Persimmon, the housebuilder, and the electronic-components maker RS Group."

it's a great company to be in . My 4 favourite shares are all quite similar, all below the radar, lovey charts and just do what they do very well - KITW, DPLM, HLMA & RNWH. Anyone got any other stocks with similar outlook n success?
Posted at 09/8/2023 14:53 by faz
Well given the mega interest here I have checked current valuations and Diploma is currently 90th in the FTSE at £4,297.1m market cap, and JOhnson Matthey the worst FTSE 100 member at £3,338.9m. It's not quite so straightforward as Hikma has a higher market cap and is also FTSE 250. but automatic entry should follow if Diploma hold the 90th position. I have been adding since the investor pres and I think DPLM is now my highest % of my portfolio
Posted at 19/7/2023 17:37 by faz
If Diploma add just 5% to the share price in the enxt three months I am sure they will be an entrant into the FTSE100. This will trigger funds to buy. As entry depends on exits ie other companies falling out of favour and losing market cap value I am not predicting it, but it will come I am sure.

Diploma Plc issued an encouraging Q3 trading update this morning. Performance in the first nine months of FY23 has been strong, in-line with expectations, with organic revenue growth up 9% and reported revenue growth up to 21%. Management are now very confident for FY guidance of ca.7% organic revenue growth plus ca.7% contribution to revenue from acquisitions, with operating margin ca.19%. The Group today also announced the acquisition of DICSA, a market-leading distributor of fluid power solutions into the European Seals aftermarket for c.£170m. The acquisition will be immediately accretive, adding ca.5% to EPS growth during the first full year of ownership. The business continues to deliver robust and profitable growth. Valuation looks a little unhelpful at first sight with forward PE ratio at 23.7x and bottom quartile for the Machinery, Equipment & Components market. But the share has traded on significantly higher multiples over the past 5 years, while PEG ratio at 2.7x is mid third for the sector and a little more supportive. The business is high quality with modest net debt and top quartile profitability ratios. The share price also has positive momentum. BUY...
