rivaldo: Yep - perhaps that 3m trade has cleared the decks given the 0.5p share price rise which has followed.
1gw: 3m share trade.
rivaldo: Friday's late RNS shows that Chelverton UK Equity Growth Fund have bought another 5m shares here - they now have 52.8m shares (up from 47.8m) and own 5.49% of INSE: Https://
1gw: To some extent I agree. But INSE does a lot of acquisitions, with a lot of intangibles on the balance sheet, and so is perhaps vulnerable to this type of occasional big loss on disposal of a part of the business that no longer fits.
rivaldo: The results look pretty decent considering the pandemic badly affected Energy Optimisation: - INSE achieved a £6.9m PBT - £11.6m positive cash generation from operations - confidently paying a 0.12p dividend - and the Corporate Order Book increasing again showing great visibility going forward Encouragingly INSE are already able to say "the Board remains confident of achieving current market expectations" despite optimisation being hit by the Q1 lockdown. From memory those expectations were for 1.3p EPS? Particularly exciting are (1) the new proprietary software for customers which is "optimising their energy cost equations, quantifying their carbon emissions, and delivering their ESG objectives", and (2) the new ESG Disclosure Services which are already delivering revenues.
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:// "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."
rivaldo: INSE have today won a £180k contract for 3 years to be LiveWest Homes' energy broker and bill checker. Https:// And last month INSE won a £195k contract over 6 years for energy consultation services to the London borough of Merton: Https:// There are other wins of a similar size over recent months. I only mention these as, although they're small, they build up a nice base of forward and recurring income as they accumulate, and of course they add to that growing Corporate Order Book.
rivaldo: INSE are now (1) Energy Assurance and (2) Energy Optimisation - it's the small SME unit which has been sold. INSE have stated that overall, given the good performance in Energy Assurance the effect is expected to be neutral, so as the lockdown eases INSE should benefit from recovery in the one as well as continued good performance in the other.
rivaldo: RNS - Gresham House have increased to 19.8%, or 190.2m shares. That means they've bought another 8.5m shares in the last week since their last disclosure: Https:// The share price rise over the last couple of days is hopefully an indication that any overhang has been or is almost cleared.
rivaldo: Some random notes from me about INSE's presentation at Mello. I thought the CEO was an excellent presenter, full of passion and industry knowledge. In particular, he knows this sector inside out and has built up and sold similar companies before: Latest forecasts: - this year: 1.83p EPS, 0.7p dividend - next year: 2.08p EPS, 0.8p dividend - INSE have a 13% leading share in a fragmented market, and are one of only two buyers in the sector - INSE recently won a new contract with Boots (there were bids from 7 or 8 competitors), and also have extended a contract with Travis Perkins through to 2023 - there's a £60m Corporate Order Book (this against £49m revenues forecast for 2019) - all of Travis Perkins' energy invoices go to INSE and they input directly into TP's accounting system, set TP's budgets, manage their accruals etc, so are a major data management business - client retention rates are high at 85%, and any churn is only due to acquisitions - there are four growth drivers with non-discretionary, recurring imperatives: (a) compliance with regulation, audit etc (b) procurement savings (c) energy accounting (d) optimisation of energy usage, green efficiency etc Huge opportunity in optimisation, which is £860m of the total £1.25 billion market. Three of every four UK businesses use a business like INSE, but only one in six have optimisation. UTW were in almost entirely different markets to INSE, representing only 7% of INSE's business. Historic private equity take-out valuation have been at minimum 10 times EBITDA. That would be £230m for next year, against the £112m current m/cap. INSE are rolling out RPA, which has the potential to automate 20% of the labour force.. They aim to increase TCV (Total Contract Value), reduce costs further using their Mumbai admin centre, and to make 4-5 acquisitions per annum. Re the Ignite Energy acquisition: bought 40% for £5m. Only 10 customers, but makes £12m revenues and £3m EBITDA, embedding staff in clients' operations. WH Smith have made £3.8m annual savings, and SSP £1.5m. INSE have 500 other clients who could make similar savings.... There's a pipeline of acquisitions through to 2024, and INSE aim to grow revenue per meter from £220 to £840. INSE as a sector-leading player have more leverage with energy suppliers than competitors , i.e in getting rebates from those suppliers for clients.
