From EQUITY Development:

Gattaca plc
Preliminary Results note

Engineering a lasting turnaround

There are many challenges facing the UK economy, but a company that we think is ahead of the recovery curve is STEM recruiter Gattaca - having already ‘cut its cloth’ over the past 2 years. Plus, the UK job market still remains the tightest it’s been for years, with 1 vacancy for every unemployed person – particularly across their sweet spot of ‘difficult-to-find’ engineers and technologists, where widespread shortages exist.

At today’s FY’22 results, the group posted in-line numbers, with adjusted PBT coming in at £0.3m on NFI up +5% to £44.1m. It also added that “demand is robust” which - alongside further self-help measures, favourable mix & an industry shift towards using more contractors vs permanent placements (re austerity) - is expected to lift FY’23 underlying PBT to £2.5m with profits being H2 weighted. The dividend has been prudently suspended, whilst the balance sheet remains rock solid, sporting net funds of £16m (or 49p/share) as at Jul’22, after generating strong H2’22 cashflow.

It was tempting to upgrade our modest FY23 forecasts & 160p/share fair value, but we prefer to conservatively retain both pending December’s AGM trading update. Nonetheless, we note the stock at 80p trades below NTAV (86.5p/share) and on a 0.4x EV/NFI multiple vs peers at >1.0x

An in-line trading update was a good start for the new CEO and CFO, and Equity Development raises its fair value/share to 160p on the back of better than expected net funds.

That new research note is freely accessible here:

The LTIP award is a conditional grant of shares, which vest and become exercisable at nil-cost on the third anniversary of the Grant Date, subject to the individual's continued employment with the Group. Vesting of the LTIP awards are subject to the achievement of earnings per share targets (the "EPS Targets") over the year ended 31 July 2024 and total shareholder performance (the "TSR Targets") over a three-year period; with 50% of the maximum award vesting for threshold performance in the EPS target, and for the TSR target, 25% of the maximum vesting for threshold performance above the medium.

For Executive Directors, additional grant allocations will be issued on a 100% TSR hurdle against the benchmark of AIM for a full three-year period. For members of the Senior Leadership Team, with the exception of Claire Cross, 100% of the additional grant allocation is subject to the achievement of EPS Targets. For Claire Cross, 90% of the award is subject to the achievement of EPS Targets and 10% subject to the achievement of TSR targets. TSR targets will be measured against the Company's average share price from 1 January 2022 to 31 March 2022.

Added again very small to bring my average down to 132.6p. That's it now. Waiting next week's update. I think people will buy on the update even if it is in line with expectations. Again, I don't know if anything else untoward is out there.

It is fear vs greed. Psychology is playing an enormous amount here. I could be looking back thinking "You're an idiot for not buying heavy and playing it too safe" or "You're an idiot for buying small even when the price has fallen substantially from highs at near 250p and you should have known not to buy a plunge like that".

Sometimes you can't win but we all have our approaches and risk tolerances. I don't have the balls to buy big here (so there is some fear here) so only in very small. Guess it is greed and fear combined.

Hi Spooky,

I thought this was all accounted for and in the price. Am I wrong?

Note 28 in the accounts on the 04/11/2021 shows no material provisions even though it is an unknown:

"28 Contingent Liabilities (unaudited)

We continue our cooperation with the United States Department of Justice and in 2021 have incurred GBP29,000 (2020: GBP1.4m) in advisory fees on this matter. The Group is not currently in a position to know what the outcome of these enquiries may be and therefore we are unable to quantify the likely outcome for the Group."

If there was something material to be announced on any front, GATC have previously put out a previous "Statement re Share Price Movement" RNS on the back of Carillion so surely they would have done that by now. If trading wasn't going well, surely they would have made the market aware of that by now too.

I'm watching a lot of things so maybe I have missed something here?

But as I said, fear still plays a part and it might just be too good to be true this one. Bizarrely this buying down here would have been more comfortable if the market had plunged big. Then you can say it is fear of the wider market rather than something which APPEARS to be specific to GATC.


All imo

Sphere, any thoughts on the potential size of the legal liability in the US?

Very valid points Doug

I dont doubt any measures the Govt take with regards to the new covid varient will have an effect on the market but the GATC share price should not be effected any more or less than the majority of shares.Good companies like GATC who have no underlying problems but great prospects will benefit greatly when a bounce occurs.The employment market will still be tight with employers desperate to hire skilled staff

I personally wouldnt sell because the small volume movements combined with the large spread of GATC have a potential to catch people out who sell now thinking they can get in cheaper.

With regards to NT whilst he posts stop losses he tends not to activate them on volitile low trading stocks.

I will personally ride out the dips and when the hysteria over the new varient settles down and the bounce occurs i will add on the forward momentum

Ok, i've had enough fun playing with Bad Smell, he just keeps repeating himself and is devoid of facts so lets get on with the investing side of things.

Todays drop is a combo of the whole market falling along with some additional covid jitters. Lets not lose sight of why GATC is an exceptional investment.

1.) GATC's market is in engineering, technical and scientific recruitment, at the moment there is a major shortage of these positions and employers are paying a premium to fill these vacancies. GATC is well positioned to take advantage of this, there is currently NO mention of an imminent lockdown, this country is well vaccinated and the Govt would potentially run through several stages of remedial action before it would get to this. If lockdown does occur the hardest hit would be the retail and hospitality sectors which GATC has little or no involvement in. Speaking from a personal standpoint I am a Calibration Engineer and during the last lockdown I was only away from site for 3 weeks.

2.) GATC has decent level of net cash

3.) Re-introduction of dividend

4.) Director buying was in the mid 200p range, shows confidence in the company

5.) A re-iteration of a 275p price target by Liberium

6.) A potential future takeover bid by Morson who hold a 20% stake

7.) Robbie Burns (AKA The Naked Trader) has taken several positions in GATC over the last year

Pretty compelling reasons if you ask me, please do your own research. There are people on this board who are trying to make you fearful of this share, they want you to be fearful for their own ends and have no interest in the company doing well.

Mister Antanatar does make sense; it's good to have a great poster, not pump and dump merchant, poor scamming chancers.

If what Mister Antanatar is saying is correct, perhaps 285p is on the low side of the spectrum.

I did not understand yesterday -10% fall; it is becoming apparent that's an MMS game to gather cheap shs for them. There was nothing more sinister.

Look at one delayed reporting buys, from two and one hours ago.

Sad very sad. Liar caught hands in the till. Perhaps his bro can get him a job in Lidl Passau.
Now let us talk about GATC, what happens to the share price in lockdown? 50p or 20p?


Antanatar23 Nov '21 - 18:28 - 41 of 41 (Filtered)

How can i be sad to re-show a post by you that shows how two faced you are? One moment you say that the GATC price would be low at 285p then the next it will go to 50p. Classic pump and dump attitude. In the next breath you are saying that GATC is a great company but it needs to go into private hands. If you were an investor you wouldnt say that unless you just want to cause aggro or are shorting them so which one is it? At least me and a few others on here are transparent with what we want, WE TRUTHFULLY think GATC is a great company with great prospects and are putting our money where our mouth is expecting a rise in price. OH and by the way if you keep filtering me why is it that you keep responding?

Far more likely we'll see a bid from Morson than any major reduction in share price They're highly acquisitive, the businesses are complimentary and they've taken a 20% stake for a reason. Materna has recently made significant purchases at £2.50 when he could have bought at 50p just months earlier before the Morson stake. I suspect Recruitment is a small world and he knows exactly what Morson are planning.
If you was Morson, when would you make a bid? Now at £1.65 or in 6 months when it's likely the share price will be heading for £3? GATC currently has a market cap of around £50 million and is likely to make around £10 million profit this financial year - it's a cash machine.
I would not be surprised if we imminently see at bid at £2.75, which is rejected and then increased to £3. Could still get rejected at that price, but I think a lot of investors would take £3 and it would still be a very good deal for Morson.
