rivaldo: New blog post from INSE. Anyone wanting to invest in ESG/net zero/decarbonisation etc on a reasonable multiple doesn't have to look much further than this: Https:// "The year ahead: what does 2021 have in store for business energy? 12th January 2021 2020 drew to a close with a flurry of energy announcements, from a new emissions trading scheme to an energy white paper, promising plenty of policies to achieve the ambitious net zero goal by 2050. The COVID-19 crisis continues to dominate the agenda, but 2021 should be an eventful year for energy, as the detail behind decarbonisation emerges to give businesses the certainty needed to commit to their own longer term strategies. So, what does 2021 have in store? etc"
rivaldo: This wee;s issue of Shares Magazine is just out, and has a nice mention for INSE: "Pressure is growing on firms, not just from outside investors but also from the inside, to incorporate ESG criteria into their internal processes as well as to become ‘greener’;. A survey of global firms by consultancy Willis Towers Watson found four out of five believe ESG is ‘a key contributor to stronger financial performance’ and are even planning to incorporate ESG into their executive incentive plans. ‘With investor and shareholder interest in ESG and sustainable investing increasing, companies are accelerating their focus on ESG initiatives’, says Shai Ganu, global head of executive compensation at Willis Towers Watson. The decision by Germany’s Deutsche Bank to link senior executive pay to sustainability targets from next year sends a powerful message in this regard.However, half the firms surveyed admitted they struggled with setting targets and measuring their ESG performance. This is a clear area of opportunity for firms such as MJ Hudson (MJH:AIM) and Inspired Energy (INSE:AIM)."
rivaldo: The good news... - 2021 guidance for 1.31p EPS reiterated - the non-core small business division sold for up to £10.5m The bad news is that 2020 underlying EBITDA will be significantly below expectations, wholly due to the lockdowns. Hardly unexpected. Given the deferral of this year's Optimisation income to 2021, and the general recovery from the New Year given the reduction in lockdowns, prospects for next year look OK, but I'm sure the MMs will mark the share price well down from the off.
rivaldo: Today's RNS will nicely highlight to the market INSE's credentials in the ESG sector: Https:// "Inspired Energy plc is the leading consultant for energy procurement, utility cost optimisation and legislative compliance in the UK and Ireland. Inspired Energy provides services to over 2,400 UK corporate business consumers, which represent c.6.7% of the UK's expenditure on electricity and over 400 in the ROI. Inspired Energy is ranked as the UK's number one advisor in the most recent independent Cornwall Insight Report, which was achieved by addressing client needs and using that insight to shape the business strategy in addition to the acquisition and investment activity. The Company provides expert assurance and optimisation services to Corporate Energy Consumers to help them manage energy costs effectively and deliver their Net Zero Carbon and ESG objectives."
rivaldo: Good to ses INSE recognised as a likely beneficiary of the UK's huge new Green Energy spending plans: Https:// "With £1bn invested in the next year to make homes, schools and hospitals greener with lower energy bills, along with a one-year extension to the Green Homes Grant voucher scheme by a year, this could provide a boost to the likes of Inspired Energy PLC (LON:INSE), an energy consultancy that helps companies with energy procurement."
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: Excellent H1 results presentation lasting 40 minutes here: Https:// Highlights for me: - guiding to a base case 1.3p EPS for next year, which is based on conservative/prident assumptions. If that's the worst case then that's good news - there could be 3-5 acquisitions in this H2. this would move INSE to a 20% share in the Assurance space (from 13%), making INSE easily the dominant player - the ESG opportunity is getting bigger and is now, with the Sustainable Finance Disclosure rules coming into force next March - Ignite has won its first new major customer, and second cross-sell has gone into trial stages - the LSI acquisiton in August, which wasn't RNS'd, was for nil consideration (there may be contingent consideration) could produce £2.5m revenues and £750k EBITDA in 2021. This looks a terrific deal - INSE look after 2,800 UK businesses. This should increase to 3,800 - all of whom have ESG potential
rivaldo: New interview with the CEO: Https:// - after buying the remainder of Ignite INSE have another £21m to deploy in H2 this year, probably to be utilised in three to five transactions/acquisitions - INSE's market share for assurance services would then increase from 13% to 20% - reinstatement of dividend is evidence of confidence going forward - increased demand for zero-carbon and INSE's ESG initiatives
rivaldo: INSE's results last week actually beat forecasts by more than I'd thought originally. INSE themselves highlighted that they'd achieved 1.74p adjusted fully diluted EPS, and this against the forecast 1.7p EPS. But hidden in Note 5 one can see that the adjusted basic EPS, which most companies highlight, was actually 1.84p EPS: Https:// Kudos to INSE for being conservative, but there's no point in holding good info back. 1.84p EPS puts INSE on a historic P/E of just 9.5.
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.
