rivaldo: 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.”

rivaldo: 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

brucie5: 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)."

rivaldo: 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."

rivaldo: 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.

rivaldo: 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/

rivaldo: Strategic Equity Capital state in their H1 results today that they have bought into INSE as a new position in the period, and INSE have now become one of their top 10 holdings: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/strategic-equity-capital-plc--sec-/prn/half-year-report/20210302070000PE8C7/ "Inspired Energy Description Is a leading UK B2B corporate energy services specialist. The company works with their clients, generally large corporates, to procure energy cost effectively, audit and report their usage of it, and help them to optimise their energy efficiency. The company has a strong focus on sustainability with a number of services that help their clients measure, report and improve their ESG performance. Thesis Inspired Energy is a leader in the growing, but fragmented, corporate energy services market. 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 market share. The business model of the business is strong with high quality of earnings from long term contracts, high margins (40% EBITDA margin) and return on capital and good cash conversion. The fund’s initial investment was made as part of a placing intended to strengthen the balance sheet and provide firepower for the company to undertake a number of bolt on acquisitions to continue to consolidate its position in the market; we believe these deals will be attractive financially and strategically. Although the company’s revenues remain depressed due to lower corporate energy usage in 2020, there is significant opportunity for a rebound in revenues, and in the share price, when there is a return to a more normalised environment. Developments in the period Interim results were in line with expectations, although trading remained weak due to Covid restrictions over the period weighing on corporate energy usage. The core corporate division experienced a modest 5% organic decline in revenues as a result, although cash conversion and order book progression was good. The non-core SME-focused division, which represented less than 10% of group revenues was weaker, and in November the company announced that they had sold this part of the business to the management team for £10.5m. Strategically, this is a positive development and is in line with our investment thesis. The company remains well capitalised and well positioned to drive growth and execute further M&A once market conditions normalise."
