Homeserve is looking really well placed in the US. Hats off to the CEO and founder. He’s doing a really good job. Still multibagger potential and more than happy to hold.
Big drop on expected results. Buying in

Homeserve shares shoot up after UBS upgrade cites ‘underappreciated growth prospects
Well I've clearly missed something here. What's behind today's rise?
When my water bill came 2 years ago they offered me Plumbing and Drainage cover for £12.Glad I took it up because I had 2 claims.Did not mind when it went up to £54 a year later.Despite having no claims in last year they just asked for £241,even for a friend who had not made a claim.On complaining they reduced it to £140 but I was not interested.Are they trying to fleece us or just not wanting to provide the cover?
Quiet boards are the best boards. I'm always wary of a stock breaking out on relatively low volume and no imminent news due, but I'm enjoying it nevertheless.
Homeserve have done a British Airways this morning - all IT systems down meaning gas & plumbing jobs are not getting booked and not being attended. Pretty poor if you have an emergency.
This looks very well positioned for the next few years. Back to robust growth.
HMS Homeserve, Broker Cazenove go....... CAZ Summary. HomeServe has delivered 22% growth in adjusted operating profit in FY17, towards the top end of the consensus range and 1% above our estimate. Though boosted by an FX benefit on translation, underlying organic growth was strong, reflecting the increasing traction of HomeServe’s business in North America, as well as solid growth in other markets. We increase our estimate for FY18 operating profit by 1% to £132.4 million. HomeServe described FY17 as a 'transformational year' for its business in North America. The acquisition of USP accelerated the growth in operating profit (+50%) and customer numbers, which were up 28%, passing 3 million. Organic growth was also an important factor. HomeServe is now at 50 million affinity partner households, in our opinion well on the path to achieve its target of 80 million in due course.

Comment from TMF........... Positive reaction Shares in home emergency, repair and installation services provider, Homeserve (LSE: HSV) have also shown great momentum over the last year. Priced at 463p exactly one year ago, they changed hands for 700p before today — a corking 51% rise. In the 2016/17 financial year, the Walsall-based business recorded a 24% increase in revenue to £785m and pre-tax profits of £98.3m — a climb of 19% on the previous year’s figure. Growth overseas was particularly impressive with record performance achieved in North America. Over the last year, the company has managed to pass the 3m customer milestone, sign up 100 new partners and increase adjusted operating profit by 75% to just over £21m. Customer numbers in France and Spain also rose, by 4% and 7% respectively. Looking to the future, the £2.2bn cap is expected to post earnings per share growth of 18% next year, leaving the stocks on a P/E of 23. That’s pretty rich by most investors’ standards. Nevertheless, with such superb numbers being revealed today, I think this can be justified. Judging by the 12% jump in its share price this morning, the market would seem to agree.

HMS Homeserve. Broker Liberum...... We maintain our estimates for FY 18, having outlined our rationale in detail in our note released in April. We continue to expect PBT of £136m, an increase of 21% on FY 17, and we continue to expect FD EPS of 31.4p with a usual H2 weighting of c.70%. We assume that net capex falls from £66m in FY 17 to c. £25m in FY 18. We continue to expect that net debt decreases each year to the end of our forecasting horizon assuming no further acquisitions and expect net debt / EBITDA to fall from 1.9x in FY 17 to 0.7x in FY 20. We believe there continues to be plenty of headroom given HomeServe’s strong cash generation, and c .£400m of facilities including a £300m RCF committed to 2019, a €50m term loan for re-payment by 2020, and £50m of private placement funding due for repayment in 2022. We do not expect any impact from the increase in IPT (increasing from 10% currently to 12% from 1st June) and the company sees it as a straight pass-through to customers. We see a CY 17 P/E of 23.4x falling to 20.8x in CY 18 as a relatively high multiple, but TSR will come from growth, yield and occasional specials or earnings enhancing deals. We think it is legitimate to view HomeServe as a scalable platform, capable of exceptional growth. SoTP gives a fair value of 760p. BUY.

Chief executive Richard Harpin said: "It has been a very good year for HomeServe with all of our businesses performing well. In North America we had a transformational year, achieving the 3m customer milestone and signing 100 new partners. The acquisition of Utility Service Partners has accelerated our progress in this large and important market." He added that HomeServe was focused on developing an online platform to connect a wider customer demographic to a broader range of expert tradespeople. Read more at hxxps://

Fantastic results. HSV homeserve............ Outlook All our businesses are performing well and have good prospects. Looking ahead, we expect further strong growth in FY18, principally driven by our rapidly-expanding business in North America. This reflects the increase in customer numbers, combined with the benefit of the USP acquisition, which we expect to deliver around $15m EBITDA this coming year. We are excited about the future for all of our businesses. We have a strong platform for growth over the years ahead and our strategic focus on home assistance, repairs and improvements will enable us to meet the needs of a wide range of customers.
