Great results rubbish share price… you really couldn’t write it …
...from last year... Company overview:Empresaria Group was founded in 1996 and is a global specialist staffing solutions provider operating in 6 sectors across 19 countries. The difference here lies in the focus on 6 sectors, not on everything which can be said for many of the competitors. EMR covers IT, Healthcare, Property, construction and Engineering, commercial, Professional and Offshore Recruitment. The group offers the full menu including temporary and contract staffing, permanent placement, executive search and recruitment process outsourcing. Strategy wise company is working on shifting its portfolio to 70:30 temp/perm to promote stability in profits. Several acquisitions have been made between 2010 and 2020, which as we know is transformed usually on the balance sheet under the goodwill section with the figure standing just above 26% of total assets. We should note that recent impairment of £5m (driving the Net income for 2020 in the red) should keep us at bay for the coming years. On a more positive note, growth has not been based on acquisitions only, as the company is actively investing in the technology facilitating the process for them and their clients. a quick look on the results from 2020 confirms what we know was the trend. Lower revenue which as we already mentioned was impacted by impairment bill, making net income negative. The group wins a good mark on resilience as they did not lay on the shoulders of the shareholders and managed to retire debt and shares while still generating a positive cash flow. Latest update for the H1 2021 brings more points on the score board mainly from operational efficiency. The lower revenue of £129.8m (compared to both 2020 and 2019) was transformed in a higher profit before tax than the Covid-free 2019, not to mention the negative 2020. As a result, adjusted and diluted EPS are higher than the 2019 by 24% and 14% respectively. The lower revenue is explained by “the exit from loss-making operations and challenging  aviation industry”. The strong trading of H1, improving global economic conditions and operational improvements are a solid base for managements statement that they expect profits for the full year to be “significantly ahead of prior and current market expectations”...from WealthOracleAM
Bought a small amount more on drop today, seems really undervalued here!
They keep telling us good things. Undershoot on net debt looks impressive to me and given markets they are in 2022 should be good too. This really should be over a pound. The CEO seems impressive and focused and bringing some cohesion to the ragbag of businesses the previous management collected.
if you think this is going to do well with the recruitment sector on fire, Staffline should be a beneficiary aswell . ( i hold both)
Agreed. Per Singer note they are now on FY21 PE of 8.2 x. Given momentum it will be interesting to see what 22 looks like and while recruiters of this type never get high multiples this must be worth over 100p
Shold be trading at a new high instead of languishing "...Empresaria has continued to deliver a strong trading performance across multiple sectors in the final quarter of 2021. As a result, profit before tax for the year ending 31 December 2021 ("FY21") is now expected to be materially ahead of current market forecasts."
Singer - Empresaria has experienced continued strong trading momentum, increasing into H2 as the Group continues to realise the benefits from operational initiatives and the improved economic environment. As a result, full year NFI is expected to be in the range of £57m-£59m with adj. PBT in the range of £7.4m-£7.9m. We take the mid-point and increase our PBT forecast by 14% to £7.7m. Given recent progress, the outlook looks increasingly positive for the Group, with an improving end market backdrop and continued benefits of recent operational initiatives. On FY21 earnings, the shares trade on a P/E rating of 11.5x, which looks undemanding against increasing evidence that a full recovery can be delivered.
Hardly a surprise that they have announced another upgrade given general recruitment markets. Should be £1 I think given momentum.
Thanks for that. The 6.5p looks very doable given they did 4.5p at H1. Not sure without looking back a bit but most recruiters are H2 weighted so maybe we will get another beat later
Allenby - Forecasts raised – Following Empresaria’s mid-May trading update, we increased our adjusted profit before tax forecasts for 2021 by c.10% from £5.2m to £5.7m. Following the strong growth in profits in H1 and the Board’s increasing confidence regarding the outcome for the full year we are raising forecasts again moving our adjusted PBT expectations from £5.7m to £6.8m and adjusted EPS from 4.5p to 6.5p, putting the shares on a modest PER of 12.4x current year earnings.
1310 ...Most certainly! Brilliant RNS today and a strong positive on the future Outlook. f
What goes to 90 goes to 100
Decent numbers and full year above. Trading should really be decent everywhere except in the pilot division. Wonder if we can get back over £1. At this point in the cycle that's where we need to be. Hard to work out exactly what is working with all the COVID ups and downs but looks to me as if the new CEO is getting this moving. Fingers crossed
Wonder if this will have a bit of a run to the interims ? Most other recruiters are doing well at the moment
Maybe a tip sheet has inspired the recent move
10% rise Friday but little interest it seems.
There seemed to be a bit of action here a few weeks ago but all back to sleep now. Based on other recruiters the current trading update - better than 2020 should really be more to come. If it is going to be taken private which was always my thought I would think now is the time.
started watching recruitment companies back in June, thought they were a good recovery bet > Staffline, Gattaca and Empresaria. Bought STAF at 27p and delighted with gain to 65/70p. Watched in frustration as GATC trebled from 45/50 to 150p, but couldnt grumble. EMR has not quite doubled, 30p to 56p, not sure why. Seems cheap so now bought in for the next move.
Not that I can see but free float is so small that it doesn't take much as we saw on the way down. Recruiting should be decent at the moment and I suspect they used the pandemic to take out costs and the 28% owned by chairman means a take private is always on the cards.
Lively today, any news?
Empresaria (EMR) FY20 results today. Here's an overview by Rhona Driggs, CEO & Tim Anderson, CFO. Video: Https:// Podcast: Https://
I didn't sell enough at what was clearly a too high a level for the performance. But I do think the new CEO is getting to grips and if/ when net fee income gets back to 2019 levels they should be pretty profitable. I am holding on as not much choice now. When a company issues a TU and not one share is traded it is a pretty good sign that they shouldn't be public.
Still hold a few of these from years back having fortunately sold a large chunk when it surged up to around 150p. Have to confess I have been pleasantly surprised by some resilience in the business over the last 9 months. Shares are pretty much unloved so could be worth a top up and the company has been buying in stock. Got to be a time when something happens to the ownership with the Chairman continuing to effectively control the company. At the end of the day I kind of wonder why the Company continues to be public, it’s not as though they ever seem to tap the market for equity.
Hi all, My mate Peter @Conkers3 and myself did a ‘Twin Petes Investing’ Podcast recently and part of our discussion includes EMR, which I hold myself, and the wider Recruitment sector. This is an unusual episode because for the first time we had a Special Guest on the show and the response has been hugely favourable (here’s a clue: he’s not the usual ‘Guru’ that all Podcasts have). And as always we chatted about loads of other Stocks and Ideas for research and a fair bit of educational stuff with regards to Investing and Portfolio Management. Anyway, if you use Youtube, Apple, Audioboom, Overcast or Spotify you can find it under the 'Conkers Corner' Channel (you want Podcast TPI 40) and you can find it on Soundcloud at the link below. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful, we try to keep them light and they are totally unscripted, not like all the stuffy financial fodder you are probably more used to !! Happy New Lockdown !!
