km18: ...from last year... Company overview:Hill & Smith Holdings is a manufacturer and supplier of infrastructure products and galvanizing services. Company’s ambition is to create sustainable infrastructure and safe transport through innovation. HILS’ focus is operating in niche markets, and at the heart of their strategy they put services, margins, and product development, based on geographically well-diversified portfolio of projects. The company operates through 3 divisions: road and Security, Utilities, and Galvanizing Services, with Road and security dominating their results. 71% of the operating profit was generated on US soil, and 26% was from UK. HILS has followed a blended approach towards growth with good CapEx and numerous acquisitions over the years. Main drivers of the markets where they operate are enabling technology, decarbonisation, and sustainable construction materials. Fundamentally, the company is well-balanced. Yes, there is goodwill from the acquisitions, which has been impaired last year, but looking and their operating performance this does not seem alarming. Cash flow last year was negative, primarily due to big debt retirement figure, and revenue is growing at 7.16% CAGR. The growth in revenue should be observed with attention, as biggest markets where the company operates UK and US are planning to commit big budgets on infrastructure and HILS has prepared by investing in additional capacity. This is in line with management’s plan to focus on organic growth in the coming periods. Higher cost of raw materials was playing against the company, but good growth prospects from exposure to “mega-trends” are balancing out the effect so far, but should be taken into consideration for the coming periods as well. Interim reports are positive with strong growth in operating profit and 350bp raise in the margin. From operating efficiency point, the company benefits from a decentralized autonomous operating model. In simple terms, managers in the regions can act swiftly to changes in trading conditions, which is very important when we consider business’ dependence on raw materials. HILS have been smart also with regards to ESG, because this opens the door to the $1tn budget that just went through Senate. Biden’s administration clearly stated the ESG considerations are a focal point to the award of public works contracts, and HILS has a well established ESG strategy to exploit that.... ...from WealthOracleAM
bothdavis: Have always found HILS to be a gem. Suspect management will once again prove the doubters wrong. Would love to see a bigger dividend personally, but will more than happily take the share price increases.
mayers: philander Simply Wall St in its comments 24 days ago (1 Nov) was ambivalent as to the future progress of HILS and in its risk analysis pointed to the 1.58% dividend's not being well covered by earnings and profit margins at 2.9% lower than last year. (finance yahoo HILS) I suspect our judgments have been blurred by the Biden Infrastructure Bill which seemed to prompt the recent share price increase. A very big fall.
philanderer: hawaly, thanks for that. HILS Chairman purchase today 2,120 @ 17.44099057p
hawaly: People may have been looking for a specific mention of the Infrastructure bill in the update. Perhaps pertinent to read across some figures from AHT - although not necessarily "like with like" the differences stand out: PER (f) HILS 22.5 AHT 23.3 Operating Margin: HILS 6.21% AHT 24% EPS HILS 70.4p AHT 255p GLA 😎

philanderer: Hill & Smith growth priced in, says Shore Capital Sustainable infrastructure group Hill & Smith (HILS) is positioned to grow its high-margin businesses and increase sales, but there are more attractive opportunities elsewhere, says Shore Capital. Analyst Tom Fraine retained his ‘hold’ recommendation on the stock, which closed up 1.1%, or 16p, at £15.20 after reporting 10% revenue growth in the four months to 30 April. ‘We believe the company is well positioned to grow its high margin galvanising business and increase sales into the US and UK highways market,’ he said. ‘However, we believe its growth opportunities are fairly reflected in the current share price. We see Renew Holdings (RNWH) as a more attractive opportunity for investors seeking to capitalise on an expected increase in government spending on infrastructure.’ HTTPS://
