barnesian: Sweenoid I agree GBG have quite a lot of overseas earnings and that is good. Until quite recently the weakening £ versus $ was uplifting anticipated profits in the way you suggest. However in the last few days the £ has strengthened considerably against the dollar from a low of $1.1967 to $1.2363 currently because of Brexit developments. That diminishes the sterling value of overseas profits and just might be part of the explanation of the very recent drop in share price. It might not of course.
intelinvestor: hxxps:// During five years of share price growth, GB Group achieved compound earnings per share (EPS) growth of 8.2% per year. This EPS growth is lower than the 29% average annual increase in the share price. So it’s fair to assume the market has a higher opinion of the business than it did five years ago. And that’s hardly shocking given the track record of growth. This favorable sentiment is reflected in its (fairly optimistic) P/E ratio of 77.21. decent company but just need to wait for a better entry point if there is one. Hope there is one! Market cap 1.1bn pre tax profits 14.75m debt 66m free cash flow 26m if im correct p/e - 76
barnesian: P/E valuation may be holding back the share price. However, there has been double digit EPS and dividend growth for seven years, averaging about 12% pa and this is early stage for this market. Factor in the probability of a take-out acquisition at a premium and the current P/E is not a useful valuation metric.
robow: from todays Daily Telegraph Questor share tip: the identity verification firm is still growing strongly, although we must keep an eye on valuations It is more than two-and-a-half years since our first look at GB Group and, even after a capital gain of more than 120pc, there could still be more in the story if last week’s full-year results are any guide. The Chester-based company reported a 20pc increase in sales to £143m (with underlying growth of 11pc), a 22pc increase in (adjusted) operating profit to £32m and net debt of £66m, following the acquisition in October of Australia’s Vix Verify Global and the swoop for America’s IDology in February. Both of those deals look to neatly supplement GB Group’s strong competitive position in what is a hot market: identity data intelligence. It provides businesses (primarily of the “business-to-consumer” type) and government organisations with the information to decide who to trade with and who to block in order to prevent fraud, and does so within a compliance-friendly platform. Analysts expect further strong sales and profits progress in the year to March 2020, helped by full-year contributions from the recent Australian and American purchases, as well as good underlying progress. The fundamentals therefore seem solid, although we must still address the issue of valuation. A yield of less than 1pc is unlikely to attract income seekers, although they should bear in mind that GB Group has increased its dividend every year since 2009. The stock trades on around 35 times forecast earnings for the year to March 2020 and 34 times for the following year. This does, admittedly, price in a fair amount of good news about future growth. Should GB Group miss a beat and disappoint the shares could suffer, as they did in 2016, although this now looks like no more than the sort of speed bump that can hit young, fast-growing firms. On the other hand, if earnings momentum remains strong the shares could still offer long-term capital growth. The company’s strong competitive position and track record suggest it could continue to appeal to risk-tolerant investors. Questor says: hold Ticker: GBG Share price at close: 580p
stig2: hot bin there, seen that, though i didn't buy the t-shirt or sell for that matter when we got to £6.30. But I agree that we might well be back in weeks not months, though I still don't have a clue how GBG share price works, but I think it has more to do with the big investor dealings (hidden from us) than the sentiment or opinions of us small investors.
chanson: Yup, with 192.3m shares in issue.Gets there at an even lower share price of 494p if we are looking for £1bn enterprise value, given 50m of debt.
barnesian: The only way to enable retail investors to share in a new issue is by a rights issue. You simply couldn't do a placing to retail investors from a practical point of view. So I don't mind an overnight placing like this, particularly as a rights issue would involve retail investors coughing up for more shares. And the deal looks like a good one and will benefit all shareholders. The dilution is out weighed by the extra earnings. But I do object to the way the share price dropped on light selling by nearly 10% just before the placing making the discount on the placing seem quite modest. Perhaps it was just coincidence. However it doesn't affect my positive outlook for this share in any way.
barnesian: Peel Hunt, one of the bookrunners in the placing, tipped GBG early on 4 Feb when share price was £4.55 yet the share price immediately tanked. Some big selling in an illiquid market. It enabled the placing to take place at the bargain price of £4.10. Odd. Directors and senior management bought 200,000 shares at the placing price.
barnesian: The numbers look good. $16m EDITDA on purchase price of $300m is 5+% return before synergies. Cost of capital is about 4% for the equity placing and 3%?? for the debt so should be immediately earning enhancing. Current business: "GBG has continued to make good strategic and operational progress since the half-year end with VIX Verify integrating well. The Board remains confident that GBG will meet its full year expectations." This looks very good. It has stepped up its aggregator strategy in the ID market and looks set to be a serious and attractive player. I expect the share price to be up in the morning.
hotfinance14: Nothing happened...the GBG share price can be up + or - 10p daily.
