Cheers Mas - and further M&A is expected to increase target prices further: "Helped by well-timed acquisitions, the “digitally-led, scalable platform is fully capable of delivering double-digit organic EBITDA growth and attractive cash flows,” said Peel Hunt. Opportunities for further M&A in fragmented markets add to the investment case, argues the broker." “Moreover, this target price is supported by our DCF model above. Clearly, any further M&A would lead us to review the target price.”

Inspired PLC’s pace of evolution and growth is being underestimated by the market, according to Peel Hunt, which rates the group as a buy with a 25p target. https://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/955455/inspired-underrated-and-under-appreciated-reckons-broker-955455.html

Hi Brucie5. I can't help directly as I don't subscribe to Stocko, but I can say that I never, ever, trust metrics on financial sites as in my experience they're almost always wrong or nonsensical and don't give the true picture! That's particularly so in the case of companies which are in the process of being transformed or are turning around - I always DMOR. The re-rating here should continue nicely assuming the recovery flagged in the 30th June AGM statement remains - as it should, and indeed it could accelerate with the removal of COVID restrictions. Hopefully therefore what we have here is: (1) a fast-recovering core business with big potential for synergies and cross-selling (2) a huge opportunity in ESG which INSE are ideally placed to spearhead (3) the likelihood of more earnings-enhancing acquisitions in a fragmented market to catalyse further growth

Can anyone explain to me why INSE doesn't meet with any positive screens on Stocko, given these excellent metrics? Value is in the the red at 19. Only thing that is good, is momentum at 86. PE Ratio (f) 13.7 PEG Ratio (f) 0.2 EPS Growth (f) 171.3% Dividend Yield (f) 2.04% Historically this also seems to be near the top of its 5 year range, which would suggest a ceiling at 22p. It would need a strong surge to break into a new range. I'm interested, and have held before, but can't quite see the 'outer', which would need presumably to be in terms of growth in earnings. I also read the article in the IC, and the opportunity seems to lie in this para: “Inspired is the leading player in the growing but fragmented corporate energy services market, and has significant opportunity to gain market share through client wins, proposition extension, and mergers and acquisitions (M&A)."

Here's the full article from the IC today: Https://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/news/2021/07/15/shares-i-love-inspired/ "Shares I love: Inspired Ken Wotton tells Leonora Walters why he thinks that Inspired’s revenues and share price have the potential to rebound July 15, 2021 Increasing complexity of corporate energy requirements, and regulatory and sustainability imperatives could help Inspired to grow organically It is also in a position to make acquisitions The company's revenues and share price could rebound in a more normal environment Ken Wotton, manager of funds including LF Gresham House UK Micro Cap (GB00BV9FYS80) and Strategic Equity Capital (SEC), explains why he invests in energy services and procurement specialist Inspired (INSE). “Inspired is the leading player in the growing but fragmented corporate energy services market, and has significant opportunity to gain market share through client wins, proposition extension, and mergers and acquisitions (M&A). “The company [helps] clients, generally large corporates, to procure energy cost-effectively, audit and report their usage of it, and optimise energy efficiency. The increasing complexity of corporate energy requirements and increasing regulatory and sustainability imperatives will support continued strong organic growth for the company with a likely flight to quality leading to further increases in its market share. Inspired’s business model is strong with high quality of earnings from long-term contracts, high margins and return on capital, and good cash conversion. “Strategic Equity Capital’s initial investment in Inspired was made last year as part of a placing to strengthen the company’s balance sheet and provide [it with the] firepower to undertake a number of bolt-on acquisitions to consolidate its position in the market. We believe that these deals will be attractive financially and strategically. “But [some of our other funds first] invested in Inspired when it listed in 2011, initially taking a 9.4 per cent stake. [And we had] worked with its management team on areas such as board composition and management incentives prior to the initial public offering. Since 2011, we have regularly engaged with the management team on various projects, most notably business strategy, raising capital for expansion and board composition and planning. “Although Inspired’s revenues are depressed due to lower corporate energy usage in 2020, there is significant opportunity for a rebound in its revenues and share price when there is a return to a more normalised environment. The company remains well-capitalised and positioned to drive growth and execute further M&As once market conditions normalise. “Inspired also has strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials. It has a strong focus on sustainability, and [offers] services that help clients measure, report and improve their ESG performance.” As of 31 March, Gresham House funds in aggregate held 19.8 per cent of Inspired’s shares. Inspired has recently changed its name from Inspired Energy to reflect the structure into which it has evolved. This comprises three divisions. Inspired Energy delivers energy, water, and sustainability assurance and optimisation services, so businesses can manage their costs better, reduce their carbon efficiently and meet net-zero targets. Inspired ESG specialises in solutions that enable investors and businesses to make effective ESG disclosures. And Inspired Software delivers technology and software that underpin services provided by Inspired."

The good news is that due to "strong institutional demand" those institutions have today bought another almost £1.3m of shares in INSE at a very respectable 19p each. The bad news is that those shares came from director exercises of options etc and subsequent part-sales. I'll give them some leeway in this case. They mostly date back to a 2017 LTIP. Most importantly, the actual profits arising to the two directors after tax and exercise prices are pretty piddling in overall terms - only around £168k for the CEO and £205k for the CFO. Plus they retained 1.8m of the shares arising, leaving them with meaningful resulting shareholdings.

Huge potential for INSE from the government-led requirement for energy performance certificates (EPC) in coming years: Https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/energy-efficiency-bill-saps-british-land-and-land-securities-6l8w9szpw "By 2030, the government wants all rented commercial properties to have an energy performance certificate (EPC) of B or above, a proposal that Jefferies expects “to become law”. However, only about a quarter of British Land’s and Land Securities’ portfolios reach that rating at present. Jefferies estimates they will be saddled with a bill of between £700 million and £800 million to sort out their buildings." Here's INSE's take on how they can help: Https://inspiredenergy.co.uk/compliance/energy-certificates/

INSE have jointly produced a new guide for businesses looking to align their reporting with the recommendations of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD): Https://www.edie.net/news/7/edie-launches-new-business-guide-on-the-Taskforce-on-Climate-related-Financial-Disclosures-recommendations-/ "What are the TCFD recommendations? Why does climate disclosure matter? How do you access the financial impacts of climate change? And, what is scenario analysis? This free edie Explains guide gives you everything you need to know. -----CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE GUIDE---- The Financial Stability Board’s (FSB) Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) is a market-driven initiative that provides a suite of recommendations for voluntary and consistent climate-related financial risk disclosures in mainstream company filings. However, the Taskforce and the TCFD movement are still in their infancies and as such corporate adoption of the recommendations is still relatively low. This 10-page guide outlines all the key questions and considerations that businesses need to improve climate-related data disclosure in line with the TCFD recommendations. With the TCFD recommendations now backed by more than 500 companies globally and the G7 confirming that climate-related disclosure will be mandatory at some point in the future, now is the perfect time for businesses to examine their own practices in alignment with the recommendations. The guide has been produced with assistance from supporting partners Inspired Energy plc and features an expert viewpoint from the company's director of client management (ESG) Rosemary De Vos on why now is the time to get ahead on disclosure. “While transparency on the risks is what is being sought here, investors are becoming increasingly aware of companies who are working on TCFD compliance today and those who are not,” De Vos said in the viewpoint. “This alone should be a signal for CSR, ESG and sustainability professionals across the private sector to recognise the need to deliver on TCFD disclosure in their own companies before April 2022 arrives.”

Up another 0.3p on no trades at all today. There may be a large buy not yet reported, but it seems clear there continues to be background demand for the shares and equally there's not much stock around to satisfy it.

Ticking up once again after a 55k buy, and sellers have been achieving almost the mid-price, so there's evidently demand out there.
