km18: Foresight Group posted interims for the 6 months ended September 2021 titled, 'A strong financial and operational performance, significant organic growth and a very favourable outlook'. Not a bad summary. Significant organic growth in Assets under Management to £8.1 billion and Funds under Management to £6.1 billion at 30 September 2021, up 13% and 18% respectively. Group Revenue of £39.7 million, up 22% on the prior year period. Core EBITDA pre-share-based payments up 43% to £15.2 million (£10.6 million in the prior year period). AUM growth fuelling topline and bottom line growth. Company is high quality and valuation is still reasonable. Not growing as fast as some, but another small specialist asset manager building up a decent track record which looks an interesting share to monitor for now....from WealthOracleAM
thaiger: The spread on FSG is so wide!
wiganer: I think folks haven’t yet cottoned onto what FSG is. Potential is massive.
xdiv: Going to buy these on Monday, so been looking around. The ticker FSG comes up as Focus Solutions Group on various websites, which was confusing. It's an old ticker shared by Focus before they got bought by Standard Life. First time I've noticed a shared ticker.
cockneyrebel: Times today: "Britain's software stars are glittering prizes for predators - Autonomy, despite quibbles over accounting standards, has a strong story to tell." Many software co's very undervalued at the moment - I don't think any account has been taken here regarding the cash position of FSG. Going forward they are going to be debt-free with apile of cash. In the past you could expect software co's like FSG trade on PE's way over 20 and that would be co's with a fair wadge of debt and no prospect of a divi - I'm not talking about the tech boom either. The market is currently focused on this years earnings because H1 hasn't yet been revealed but once the interims are out then investors will look at the forward earnings. It has to be said too that being an AIM software co if the investor is uninitiated with FSG and the recent changes from bespoke software to 360 off the shelf software then the scaleability probably hasn't been appreciated by many. That might mean that for a lot of the market it's a leap of faith to believe FSG earnings are going from 5.7p last year to 8.2p this year and 12.2p in the coming year. £2.4m net cash at the year end gone. With the recent contract win, depending how those payments come in, the cash position is probably set to go way higher in the next couple of years allowing for the development of even greater business and the payment of a divi imo. Anyway - we'll all hear more come the results on the 7th - hopefully you can call the FD's presentation off for the following week davidosh - as we all bank a big agreed cash bid and the co gets taken over on a fat premium :-) I still fancy Unisys as the bidder. CR
cockneyrebel: I'm wondering if it is jackleeds. Mastek made about £20m profit 08/09, reckon they are probaly set to get back to that this year. Making enough money to tale FSG out easily. However I remember the CEO saying on TV that FSG had 4-5 main competitors so I think it could be any of those who are a fair bitbigger than FSG that want FSG's Software as it's wiping the floor with them. I don't think the process will take long tho, I think a buyer will want it done before anyone else muddies the waters - if there isn't two after FSG already. CR
davidosh: Just to show where the decision will lie with agreeing a price for the sale of the company. These are the major shareholders... Azini Capital Partners LLP 8,595,686 (28.90%) John Streets 8,000,000 (26.90%) Liontrust Investment Services 3,574,754 (12.01%). updated 10/11 Oryx International Growth Fund 1,440,000 (4.84%) J.O Hambro 1,150,000 ( 3.87%) updated 11/11 Octopus Investments Ltd 969,170 (3.26%) John Streets is the founder of Focus from back in 1995 and is a non exec director in FSG. John has a 20 year track record in IT sales and the financial services business working for Honeywell Information Systems, Wang Computers, Fame Computers and Intuitive Systems. In 2000 he led the floatation of the company on the AIM market, raising £10m to further fund the company's development of its technology and solutions. In 2006 John assisted the Board to recruit Richard Stevenson as Group Chief Executive, John then changed his role to Non-Executive Director. John is currently working with a number of start up software companies. As the float price was over £2 I sense that he would surely want to get more than that to feel the company has been a success for investors. Azini by total contrast bought most of their holding in the downturn and at the depths of the share price so any significant gain from here and with a clean cash exit will be a sensational return for them over three years. Azini are also represented on the board by Nick Habgood who is also a Non-Executive Director. Nick is Managing Partner of Azini Capital Partners LLP ( a private equity fund management firm specialising in the acquisition of shareholdings in private and public technology companies. That all suggests that within the board along with the key executives a deal can be agreed and the company more or less delivered via their majority ownership. This should not be a very long process if there is only one party bidding but I sense there may be quite a lot of interest due to the immense potential and superb client list.
simon gordon: HB Markets - 25/10/10: Focus Solutions Group (LON:FSG) (FSG, 96.0p, £28.56m) has extended its contract with Bank Of Ireland Life for its focus:360 wealth management product. The contract extension is expected to be valued at c.£0.675 including £0.3m of license fees over the next five years and £0.375m of professional services. The contract extension highlights the strength of implementing a single platform solution that can extend to new audiences in line with an organisation's growth ambitions. As expected the recent upbeat trading statement has encouraged the market has upgrades 2011 PBT to £3.5m and EPS of 8.2p. The stock trades on 11.7x 2011 earnings and 7.9x 2012 earnings. We continue to believe the current share price does not reflect the strong order book and the high quality of earnings. We reiterate our BUY recommendation and our target price to 128p – equivalent to 10.5x 2012 earnings.
interceptor2: ditto - cr. re - year end rally, I have been bullish since June and think todays pullback with FSG is a good opportunity. I have to try and reign in my enthusiasm for FSG, but it's not easy. I note some posters have mentioned that FSG could be a multi bagger some times over, and I agree. I dont normally like to speculate about 2, 5, 10 baggers etc, but these do stand out as one of those rare opportunities the market throws up occasionally. I noticed Finncap increased 2011 forecasts last week but left 2012 the same with EPS at 12.2p with a 123p price target. With such a large transformational recent contract win and further wins likely I appreciate it isn't easy to forecast 2012 realistically. But I expect current forecast will be beaten comfortably, with 2012 forecasts even more so. Very excited by FSG, but I do hold here, so may be a tad biased. dyor etc. Regards........
simon gordon: HB Markets - 12/10/10: Focus Solutions Group (LON:FSG) (FSG, 92.0p, £27.37m) The trading statement ahead of the interims to 30 September 2010 is positive, with performance ahead of expectations. The provider of multi-channel distribution software to the financial services market expects sales to be up over 25% against the previous year to £5.4m, with a dramatic improvement in operating profit to over £1.1m (H109: £0.1m). The group has a strong order book with 80% of the forecasted revenues already booked. The Coaching Platform acquisition is delivering £0.5m of licence sales in H1 2010. We believe there is scope for the market to upgrade current 2011 estimates of PBT of £2.9m and EPS of 7.0p. The share price has rallied since buy recommendation following the recent £10m contract win. We are pleased by the group's performance and believe a current 2012 PER of 7.5x does not reflect the strong order book and the high quality of earnings. Despite the group exceeding our previous target price, we retain our BUY recommendation and increase our target price to 128p – equivalent to 10.5x 2012 earnings.
