glasshalfull: Well...I’ve stuck a few toes in the water! Held EMR on/off over the years & astounded to see it fall back to 75p yesterday, especially as they provided a brief “in line” on trading the previous day. 50% wiped off the share-price in the last 12 months. Sorry for holders. V impressed with new CEO in a few conference calls I’ve been party to over the years &’while the business will never command a high valuation, it looks incredibly cheap down here. Kind regards GHF
aishah: From the Capital Network note @104p: BALANCED GROWTH Empresaria looks strikingly inexpensive on a 2016e PE of 9x (Capital Network forecast) for a stock which keeps delivering strong double-digit EPS growth (2015: 24%, 2014: 29%, 2013: 24%, 2012: 25%). In this report we provide a brief refresher on the growth model and the reasons we believe it will keep on delivering in the coming years. The company describes itself as an international, multi-brand, specialist staffing group, and we argue that the success of Empresaria’s strategy reflects its leverage to one major secular growth trend – the emergence of flexible employment practises in higher-skilled job functions across many global markets. In addition to this structural growth trend, you have a measured, accretive acquisition strategy, and a programme of continuous profitability enhancement that still has some headroom for further gains. Taken all together, it’s a balanced EPS growth story. PROVING RESILIENCE The company will provide a trading update January 21st, and we believe this could provide evidence of the sustainability of Empresaria’s earnings growth, ahead of the full results release March 2nd. The key thing to consider is that 2016 has been a tougher year for the wider staffing services sector, with several sector peers issuing profits warnings or weak guidance. A solid update from Empresaria would help to confirm that this company is a structural growth business and not merely a cyclical one. VALUATION – THE FALSE BENCHMARKING SYNDROME We’d argue that a stock with consistent double-digit EPS growth should normally trade on a P/E in the teens rather than the 9x currently afforded to Empresaria. The problem is index benchmarking lumps Empresaria together with enterprises that are essentially UK temping agencies. Whereas Empresaria is neither UK-focussed (35% EU ex-UK, 35% RoW, by Net Fee Income 2016e) nor does its business model resemble the high-volume low value-add generalist agencies. We recognise that the stock market likes to anchor valuations to some kind of benchmark, and we don’t expect the shares to re-rate instantaneously. But, by way of an illustration of the potential upside, we note that if the company delivers our 13.5p EPS for 2017e, and the market rewards this with just a re-rating from 9x to 10x P/E, that would get you 135p as a December 2017 share price.
aishah: Small Cap Value Report from yesterday: Empresaria (LON:EMR) Share price: 84p (unchanged today) No. shares: 49.0m Market cap: £41.2m AGM statement (trading update) - things sound like they're going fairly well at this staffing group: "...The Group remains on course to meet market expectations for the full year." Broker forecasts look undemanding to my mind, so I would hope to see the company update with an out-perform statement later this year. It seems well-managed, and performed well last year. More detail is given today about different countries - Empresaria has an unusually wide geographic footprint for such a small cap, but it seems to work: hTtp://
harrogate: I am not sure that RNS gets the price moving - while the rating is low that seems to be what the market values this collection of recruitment businesses at - with the debt. Most staffing related companies seem to be stuck or seeing their share price moving backwards and not sure that this is going to change here unless some more colour emerges at the AGM. We might need an acquisition to kick start things.
graham1ty: Battlebus, good statement, but a bit bland. Slightly difficult to read if that is price sensitive at all ? I suppose the reassurance that there are no problems might lead to a sigh of relief and a slight rise ? Having seen the Directors recently I know they are disappointed that January trading statement "ahead of expectations", then damn good results in March, and EMR still trading 20% below the price at the end of 2015. If they do make the 2016 numbers ( and they have a good record of forecasts creeping up during the course of the year: this year's forecast started at 9.5p and is now 10.5p) then they are on 8x which is crazy. Sit and wait for the share price to catch up here
daneswooddynamo: Mr T Sheffield is a long-standing large shareholder in Emr. He has actually been selling recently and reduced his holding by about 500,000. Just as Miles Hunt, one of the founders, has been selling down on the back of the share price recovery. Probably explains the short term weakness in the price back from the £ level as the stock has to find a home...
graham1ty: It is slightly disappointing when the trading statement said "ahead of expectations". So, forecasts up, from 7.5p to 9p and the share price falls from 100p to 78p. That means it was on a 2015 p/e of 13x. It is now on 8.7x. After a profit upgrade, a fall in rating of 35% seems a bit harsh !!!! In fact, in mid 2014, once the results were out for 2013, it traded at about 50p on historic 5.7p of earnings. Or 8.8x. In mid 2015, after 2014 results it traded up from 50p to about 65p on eps of 7.5p, at the latter price, on about 8.7x So, despite an increase in eps of c60% over the last two years, an "ahead of expectations" statement, and an apparent surge in the share price.......EMR is on exactly the same rating it was on two years ago, despite growth, debt paid down and the proven ability to grow eps. All that progress and on exactly the same rating.
jeff h: Arden keen:- Empresaria shares could "materially outperform", according to broker Shares in the specialist staffing group Empresaria (LON:EMR) have scope to “materially outperform” over the next year, according to the company’s broker Arden Partners. In a note published shortly after a bullish trading update, Arden said the company’s shares are worth 130p each. They are trading at a 50% discount to this valuation. “Profit delivery and current trading trends support the view Empresaria is firmly in growth mode,” Arden said. Earlier the company said a recent round of investment is paying off and that full-year profitability will come in ahead of City forecasts. It overcame “adverse currency head winds” created principally by a weaker euro to post a 23% advance in adjusted pre-tax earnings, while fee income rose 10%. Net debt fell by over a quarter at £7.3mln, a figure that included the term loan used to fund the October acquisition of Pharmaceutical Strategies in the USA. Arden Partners has raised its pre-tax profit forecast to £7.5mln from £7.2mln for 2015. Its profit number remains at £8.6mln for the current year........ ...Empresaria shares, up 115% in the last year, advanced a further 4% to 87p after the trading statement. This still only values the business at £43mln, or around eight times forward earnings. Empresaria should be on a “double digit” multiple of earnings, Arden said. It concluded: “We believe the current share price represents a valuation anomaly providing scope for material outperformance should present growth trends be sustained.” Source:-
aishah: Shares Mag from 30th July: Recruiter Empresaria (EMR:AIM) is up 37% in a month, a move some are putting down to a reduced share overhang from a major shareholder and others argue is a deserved rerating for the stock. empresaria chief executive officer (ceO) Joost Kruelen, who we met on 22 June, said at the time he was surprised at the stock’s lowly rating over the preceding 12 months, given the multiples achieved by other recruiters. Downwards pressure on the share price may have come from major shareholder caledonia which sold down its stake to less than 3% over the past nine months, having previously owned 17% of the business. caledonia decided to switch focus from small cap stocks to larger businesses, says a spokesperson for empresaria. earnings per share (ePS) for the year to 31 December 2014 was 8p on an adjusted basis, which excludes non-cash charges and exceptional items. House broker Shore capital estimates the business will earn 8.8p in the next financial year, for a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 10.4. Micro cap recruiter Hydrogen (HYDG:aim) trades at 6.5 times 2015 forecast earnings, while larger peers are at multiples ranging from 18 at Hays (HaS) to 21 at SThree (STHr) and 27 at michael Page (mPi). Shares flagged the stock nearly a year ago on 11 September when it traded at 46.5p. Now at 91.5p, and having paid a 0.7p dividend, it is up 98% versus a 3% gain on the FtSe All-Share. ShareS SayS: Sit tight now the share price discount has narrowed.
grindertrader: Nice to see finally EMR share price adjusting upwards after the sell off.
