diku: So Placing at 10p...will the price eventually visit 10p in due course?...
arthur_lame_stocks: hybrasil. Surprised to see you investing here. Personally I reckon it's touch and go whether they go bust and I don't see enough upside to justify taking a punt at this price.
kingston78: Looking back at their 2016 annual report HSS had an EBITDA of £20.4 m and a pre-tax loss of £17.3 m due to exceptional costs of £16 m and interest £14.7 m. It is no good to have exceptional costs year after year. This means the company has deep operational and financial problems. Interest expense is also too high, with £200 m loans and £40 m HP outstanding at 31/12/2016. In 2016 its balance sheet had a net asset of £153 m, but if we strip out the intangible asset of £179 m the balance is actually in deficit of £46 m. It was surprising that they had paid total dividend of £1.7 m. The former management simply did not have common sense when the Company could not afford to pay a dividend. Despite the current improved trading and some cost cutting HSS is not out of the woods. It is spending more money to restructure the business than the reward they are reaping in the short term. It will take them years to return to pre-tax profit eve if achieved. When a person / company is in heavy debt one has to run to stand still financially, as most of the money earned will go towards debt repayment.
pugugly: Update out - School report working hard but -------- (imo) a lot further to go and competitors appear to have major built in advantages PLUS again IMO marketplace too crowded and all contracting operators under extreme cost pressure PLUS adjusted EBITAcasn cover a multitude of sins and omissions - Need to see real bottom line. "adjusted EBITA of between £8m and £11m" "As part of these changes, the Group will recognise a provision for exceptional costs of approximately £40m, including an impairment of related assets of £7m" OK they go on to claim annual savings thereafter but "many a slip twixt cup and lip" etc (imo)
rumbers2: Pugs Tosca sold a big stake in Speedy - not HSS. Re. latest 'Strategic Review' this seems like deja vu to me. Three years ago HSS undertook a massive review to centralize all its national operations through one depot. Update after update revealed delays in completion but promising us sunlit uplands ahead. Now that's finally completed we are about to embark on yet another review stretching into 2020.I've heard this tired old song before.It didn't wash then and even less so now.
hybrasil: Very pleased with the results of the strategy review. Share price so shot at the moment that it can only get better Good brand.
rumbers2: Toscafund tonight reveal they have sold the lions share of their 20% stake in Speedy Hire leaving them with 8% holding. It's clear they have conceded defeat in the long fight for a merger with HSS. The HSS survival plan had better be good next week because no knight in shining armour will be coming to its rescue now.
hybrasil: The share price (22p ish) prompted me to go and look at the figures. The people who made money here are the people who managed to float this. Its worth negative yes negative £54m if you take out the intangibles. So if you were to buy the company at todays low price for £39m. You get nothing - yes diddly squat. Thats why there hasnt and imo wont be(en) a bid.
pugugly: target price reduced to 30p IMO may still be too generous !!;utm_source=BulkEmail_Money_Weekly&utm_medium=BulkEmail_Money_Weekly&utm_campaign=BulkEmail_Money_Weekly#i=5 HSS recovery not good enough, says Liberum First-half results from HSS Hire Group (HSS) has reinforced concerns Liberum has about the recovery of its earnings. Analyst Rahim Karim reiterated his ‘sell’ recommendation and lowered the target price from 46p to 30p after results that reported an underlying operating loss of £7.3 million, which he said stemmed from an ‘over-reliance on lower margin services revenues and a weak performance with its small and medium-sized enterprise client base’. At the time of writing, the shares were trading up 0.6%, or 0.2p, at 41p. ‘Although the company is expected to return to profit in the second half, the profile of this recovery in earnings is less sharp than previously expected and as a result we cut our full year 2017 earnings forecasts by 81%,’ he said. ‘To make things worse, the company is currently in the midst of refinancing its debt, all of which matures in 2019. We believe that the current valuation fails to fully reflect all of these risks.’
grahamg8: Got excited thinking Standard Life/Aberdeen were big buyers on the drop in price. But it is all due to their merger. Would Speedy buy HSS? Perhaps the better question is 'why would Speedy buy HSS?' If one of your competitors was in big trouble how do you take advantage. Well I think the last thing to do is launch a rescue take over bid. Drive your rival into the dust with a spate of special deals, cherry pick the major accounts. Wait until said competitor goes bust then pick up spare equipment and selected branches at a knock down price. Unfortunately I have rather more shares than I want right now. If a white knight is unlikely can HSS save itself? Some vicious pruning needed before the business bleeds to death.
