pj 1: 2 to 3 year exit plan is my guess. If all goes to plan at x3 /x4 current share price. Lots of hard work to do though yet.
rivaldo: Cheers wanttowin, glad to be of service :o)) Peel Hunt's 25p may be eclipsed too at this rate. There's plenty of examples of analyst price targets being overtaken and being raised later to catch up with where the share price has reached.
yump: Just goes to show that you can have a perfectly good business, growing steadily and have a long flat share price which doesn't mean anything is wrong at all.
fizzypop: Great results which should put a rocket under the share price.
rivaldo: The manager of the FP Octopus UK Micro Cap Growth fund believes INSE is a "hidden gem". If extrapolating from his suggested £20m+ PBT INSE makes say £17m PAT in the future, that would suggest a £238m m/cap on his P/E of 14 - more than double the current m/cap: Https:// "Inspired Energy First up is Inspired Energy, which was founded at the turn of the millennium and floated onto the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) market in 2011. It provides consultancy for commercial and industrial clients who are looking to reduce energy costs and usage. Since its IPO, the stock has outperformed its FTSE AIM All-Share index by almost eight time with gains of 457.03 per cent. "Inspired Energy did a placing in June this year of 14.5p to raise money to acquire a competitor in Ireland," Power explained. "We started investing in this company in our EIS [Enterprise Investment Scheme] portfolios about seven years ago when the company was making a profit of £1m. Today it's making profit of £10m and, with this Irish acquisition, that will jump to £14m so it will be very earnings-enhancing for them. "With a £75m market cap it's just under the radar of the bigger small-cap investors so, on the back of this acquisition they've completed and some share price appreciation following the acquisition, we expect it to appear on the radar screen and re-rate to nearer 12x or 14x earnings. "We think you will see this company continue to make acquisitions and to do well. We think it will make profits north of £20m over the next few years."
rivaldo: Positive view of INSE from the Armchair Trader: Https:// Extract: "Can Inspired Energy lift its shareholders? AIM listed energy consultancy Inspired Energy is undergoing an acquisition strategy to grow the business and boost shareholder value AIM listed stock, Inspired Energy PLC, is a provider of energy purchasing and energy consultancy services to large private and public sector organisations. With a market capitalisation of £73.6million, the business offers energy procurement services to large businesses, aimed at significantly cutting down on energy costs and usage. Inspired Energy came to my attention yesterday through my usual weekly searches through Company Refs, and then again today today as a result of their acquisition of Irish firm Horizon Energy for £9m. Other recent acquisitions in 2017 include Flexible Energy Management Ltd and the acquisition of Churchcom Ltd. So, why did Inspired Energy appear in my filters? What makes them a candidate for growth? Let’s take a look at the fundamentals. Inspired Energy Fundamentals The business has been consistently growing year on year. Turnover and pretax profits are up every year since 2012. In turn, Earnings Per Share have followed suit. Looking ahead, forward growth is expected at around the 40% mark, but there’s a note of caution that comes with this forecast. The only broker contributing is Canaccord Genuity. Ideally for a reliable consensus, I’d want to see at least five or six brokers forming a consensus. We’ll stick with the forward looking ratios as they look extremely appealing – but do bear in mind my thoughts on a reliable consensus. Ok, so the forward P/E ratio based on the Canaccord Genuity numbers comes in at 9.24 times while the forward PEG (Price/Earnings to Growth) is at 0.23 suggesting significant room for share price growth given the forecast profit for the next two years. The business is being run effectively with ROCE (Return on Capital Employed) at an impressive 72.2%, which is very good, even for a support services business with low operating costs. On top of this, profit margin levels are at a very healthy 24.5%. etc"
edale: Just been looking at the UTW announcement this morning and the big drop in share price. Presumably UTW performing badly must generate opportunities for INSE to pick up business.
rivaldo: Panmure called the share price post-results "curious", and they were "baffled" by the 20% discount to the wider market when the share price was 16.6p. They put this down to (1) the slower organic growth in the last H2, which they expect to snap back this year, (2) acquisitions causing a rise in gearing, which is expected to now fall rapidly, (3) the management's placing of shares and (4) the very poor performance by peer UTW, which "fails to recognize the fundamental difference between the two companies’ different models". I appreciate the prior debate about dep'n/amortisation etc, but feel the combination of the above are much the more likely to be behind the current stagnation. I suppose one shouldn't be surprised about a hiatus since the share price rose nicely from 13p or so. The AGM is in less than 2 weeks, and interims are only 2 months away in August.
rivaldo: INSE have been tipped by T.M.F - and it's even cheaper than they say when you consider Panmure's forecast of 1.45p EPS for this year, rather than Shore Capital's 1.3p EPS which they seem to have based their numbers on: Http:// "2 stocks with 25% immediate upside potential By The Motley Fool Feb 1, 2017 Soft drinks supplier Britvic(LSE: BVIC) and energy procurement consultant Inspired Energy (LSE: INSE) delivered positive trading updates this week. Based on such good trading, I reckon there's around 25% immediate upside potential in each share price to get the valuations to a 'fair' level." "Meanwhile, AIM-listed Inspired Energy delivered an end-of-year trading update Monday trumpeting a 40% revenue gain, a 45% surge in earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), and an order book that has swollen by 14% during 2016. The firm has grown both organically and by acquisition and chief executive, Janet Thornton said: "Inspired had a very strong 2016 in which the business delivered on its stated growth strategy... We continue to seek out attractive acquisitions and I am confident that 2017 will be another year of positive growth." "With its share price of 13.25p, Inspired Energy's P/E rating sits at just over 10 for 2017 and the dividend yield is projected to be 3.8% that year. Growth looks strong with analysts anticipating a surge in EPS of 19% during 2017." "Meanwhile, Inspired Energy's valuation seems conservative given the growth figures the firm keeps posting. What's a normal valuation? In my view, the market is being unfairly cautious on these two firms because both are trading well with apparently good prospects for further growth down the line. The median forecast P/E rating of all stocks with forward estimates for earnings runs around 14 on the London stock market. Re-rating to that level would see Inspired Energy put on more than 25%... ...If good trading continues and earnings keep increasing, we could easily see share price gains from here, and there's the comfort of a decent dividend in each case while we wait."
melody9999: I think INSE points up the opportunities and the challenges of investing in small cap penny shares. Since 2011 INSE has consistently grown revenue and profitability each year. They have an established and stable management team. They operate in a stable long term business environment with recurring revenues where it is recognised that over the longer term, energy prices will increase. Therefore to the commercial businesses that are INSE's customers, managing this element of their cost will become increasingly important In the meantime the INSE share price has varied between 17p and 9p in the last year! Whilst INSE trading has remained strong (and reported by the company as such).....with forecast increases in revenue and earnings .... until today the share price had fallen by as much as 50% Some investors have speculated that the short term fall in energy prices will mean the end for UTW and INSE. That view has percolated into the market. The reality is that good well managed successful companies tend to continue to be good well managed successful companies. And short of some fundamental change in the energy market, companies such as INSE will continue to be successful. So well done to Janet and the team as usual please for the foreseeable and rest assured that INSE remain one of my largest investments.
