rivaldo: Spot on bbd :o)) A short but sweet note from SCSW, concluding "Keep on buy list" after the H1 update. For the record, Cenkos' recent note after the trading update hasn't been noted here. They forecast 25.9p EPS this year rising to 31.4p EPS next year (with 7.6p and 10p dividends). They summarise: "IG Design has announced a trading update for H1/19E, guiding to performance being in-line with strong market expectations. The group is expected to deliver record H1 revenues, with all regions contributing to the growth performance. Highlights for the period include numerous strategic actions by management, with the acquisition of Impact Innovations in the US being significant in transforming the group’s growth profile. Management guides to good visibility in the order book, with strong momentum going into H2/19E. IG Design’s fundamentals remain fully intact, and given the recent retracement in share price along with the broader market, we assess the current price levels (FY20E EV/Adj EBITDA of c7.8x) to be a great buying opportunity for investors. Buy."
rivaldo: T2R, in the last issue SCSW suggested the share price would go to 800p. This weekend's article concentrates mainly on the new Impact acquisition, and concludes that operating margins could rise to "well over 10% on successful execution" - which is "big bucks". It's unfair to subscribers to paste the entire article, which is VERY long! Give it at least a couple of weeks.....
rivaldo: Today's fall is due to Questor in the Telegraph saying bank profits given the share price rise and risks attached to the new American acquisition. I have to say I disagree :o)) Firstly, like most journalists' info the forward P/E they state of 24 is completely meaningless since it excludes the benefits of the acquisition. At 571p now, the current year P/E is 22, and this falls to only 18 for next year starting 1/4/19 given 31.5p forecast EPS. And this forecast is "conservative" since it includes no cross-selling benefits and procurement synergies. The risk of taking on American acquisitions is nullified by IGR's excellent prior record, and frankly there are many, many more acquisitions which work well than there are disasters. I agree that the additional seasonality brought in by Impact's acquisition is unwelcome. However, the addition of Walmart as a significant customer has to be a good thing. Above all, you just have to read the new research notes to appreciate the scale of the additional potential cross-selling and synergies now available to IGR in the USA.... Https://
rivaldo: It's not too long until the new financial year starting next April. With 31.4p EPS now forecast by Cenkos (and Progressive now going for 31.5p EPS) it's certainly possible to see a share price anywhere between 620p-700p fairly soon.
rivaldo: New research from Progressive Equity Research FYI: Http:// The share price is at new highs, and should continue to steadily advance imo.
rivaldo: LOL :o)) Typical Pugugly negative comment! This is one of the quietest threads on ADVFN for a start. Probably just short-term traders buying in on the trading statement run-up. Or perhaps given the all-time highs some profit-taking could be expected. Or perhaps we'll see the share price bounce back to the highs later.
edale: Thanks t2r, we have seen a welcome increase in share price in the last few days and may get a bit more on Monday from this recommendation.
davebowler: Cenkos; Q3 Trading Update IG Design Group plc (“DG”) has released a Q3/18 update indicating that both gross and adj EBITDA margins are ahead of expectations – we upgrade 2018/19E adj DEPS accordingly. A continuation of the strong performance reported H1/18A, all core geographies remain on track to achieve strong YoY revenue and adj PBT growth, with DG having traded well throughout the Christmas period. The inherent growth potential of the Group’s geographically diverse market positioning (both organic and M&A-led) continues to be underscored by a strong balance sheet. DG’s commitment to a progressive dividend policy (5.5p, 2018E) provides investors with an increasingly attractive combination of growth and income. The recent softening in the share price offers an ideal entry point. BUY. n Strong Q3/18 trading. With trading strong up-to-and-throughout the Christmas period, we reiterate our 2018/19E revenue guidance. We anticipate record sales of £325.1m in 2018E (+4.6% YoY), rising to £342.4m in 2019E. We forecast >70% of 2018E revenue (by destination) will be non-UK – testament to the Group’s diversified, global nature and thereby providing a natural hedge against geo-specific downturns in consumer demand and FX headwinds. n An improved margin profile. We understand the improvement in both gross and adj EBITDA margins has been relatively consistent across all core geographies. As noted at H1/18A, a continued evolution in DG’s sales mix towards higher margin product categories (eg single greetings cards) and manufacturing/M&A-led synergistic benefits post The Lang Companies Inc. (Lang) acquisition in 2017A have all aided sustained margin expansion. The installation of an additional state-of-the art gift wrap manufacturing press in Holland (commencing production Q4/18) is also expected to afford additional upside to 2018E and 2019E. n Upgraded adj DEPS. Considering the above improvements in the Group margin profile, we upgrade our 2018 and 2019 adj DEPS forecasts by 1.5p (+7.5%) and 0.9p (+4.0%) respectively. n Impacts of US tax reform on 2019E. Given DG’s US exposure (~42% total revenue as at H1/18A), we expect adj DEPS to benefit in 2019E+. We anticipate this will also drive a reduction in cash tax payable, thereby further improving the net cash flow position of the Group. Whilst we await final confirmation as to the extent of the likely impact on DG, we believe a 0.5p-1p improvement in 2019E adj DEPS to be an appropriate range – this has not been captured in our upgraded 2019E position. We expect to provide an update (and formal quantification) at the time of the 2018 full year results in Jun-18.
time 2 retire: A nice write up from The Motley Fool... IG Design Group (LSE: IGR) has been one of the London’s poorest performers in Tuesday business. Following the release of half-year numbers it was down 10% from Monday’s close but, as you will see, there was little in the statement to prompt such a sudden drop. Instead, today’s mild sell-off can be attributed to profit booking on the back of recent share price strength. IG Design’s market value swelled by almost a quarter in the month leading up to today’s results, with the firm hitting a record of 435p per share just yesterday. Today’s release suggests to me that the Bedfordshire-based firm should resume its upward charge sooner rather than later. Global superstar In a sign of further progress, chief executive commented today that it had enjoyed yet another “robust performance” in the six months to September, a period in which it saw “all regions trading profitably and growth being achieved both organically and through acquisition.” Revenues at IG Design — which designs and manufacturers gift packaging, greetings, stationery and a variety of other giftware — leapt 14% in the six months to £166.5m, with organic sales at constant currencies increasing 10% year-on-year. As a result, pre-tax profit at the firm ballooned 27% in the first half to £10.5m. Buoyed by this impressive performance, IG Design decided to light a fire under the interim dividend, hiking the payment by 14% to 2p per share. It’s little surprise to see IG Design striking such an upbeat tone as its broad catalogue of products fly off the shelves across all major territories. In the Americas and the UK, IG Design saw revenues climb by 18% and 4%, respectively, in the period to September, to $91.3 and £57.5m. And sales are likely to continue booming Stateside thanks to the shrewd acquisition of US-based rival Lang last year. As if this wasn’t enough, IG Design also continues to make impressive progress in its other international markets; in Continental Europe and Australia sales advanced 19% and 13%, respectively, in the first half. City analysts are expecting earnings at the business to rise 10% in the year to June 2018 — and follow this with a 14% advance in fiscal 2019. And I reckon that these impressive projections could be subject to meaty upgrades in the weeks and months ahead. With IG Design’s improving balance sheet also raising, the possibility of additional earnings-boosting M&A (net debt fell £6.2m during the first half to £70.2m), I reckon the business is a brilliant growth share worthy of a premium forward P/E ratio of 19.5 times.
pugugly: t 2 r. Many thanks for quick response - You have confirmed my doubts which had been raised by the difference in timing of the turnaround of IGR and the time she left you. As a result I suspect I will continue to avoid William Sinclair. I trust you are enjoying your retirement and the recovery of the iGR share price. As usual I sold some of mine too early but cannot complain as they were at a nice profit and the balance still held are up over 200%
