rivaldo: Very encouraging H1 trading update today - looks like IOM are experiencing an upwards change of pace and confidence. No wonder the share price is re-rating: Https:// "The Group has continued to perform strongly in the first half of the financial year. Trading in the six months ending 30 September 2018 has been in line with management expectations, with both revenue and trading profits expected to be well ahead of the comparative period last year, including the contribution from the acquisitions made in the previous financial year..... ......"iomart's continued strong trading performance is a reflection of the strength of our cloud capabilities and business model, the breadth of our customer base and the ongoing growth of the cloud market. With a significant and sustainable market opportunity ahead of us, a growing sales pipeline and high levels of revenue visibility, we look to the second half of the year and beyond with confidence."
nurdin: Not complaining but why has the share price been so strong of late? A bid coming? Wouldnt surprise me at all to be honest.
soundbuy: Hmmmm........ Nowt here..........
soundbuy: Panmure (HT FT AV) While iomart’s share price is roughly where it was in 2013, it has since then doubled revenue and profits through a combination of organic growth and bolt-on acquisitions. Including potential future acquisitions (not in forecasts), we think it should maintain mid-teens growth in revenue and EBITDA consistent with the past few years making the shares attractively priced at 9.4x FY’18 EBITDA. This compares to other UK Technology midcaps at 16.0x on the same expectation of 15% EBITDA growth p.a. We initiate with a buy rating and price target of 430p.  Competitive threats overblown: Our checks in the industry confirm that iomart has an established role to play in the cloud computing market segment, which has recently been dominated by hyperscale public cloud vendors Amazon (AWS), Microsoft (Azure) and Google (GCP). This is echoed by public cloud provider’s offerings in the marketplace which are more tailored to larger companies.  Share price roughly the same despite the company doubling in size: Despite the share price being only slightly higher than it was four years ago, iomart has doubled revenue and profits (both pre-and-post tax) and seems to have settled into a consistent level of high single digit organic growth, complemented by acquisitions.  High quality revenue and a potential acquisition target: While we think iomart could grow faster if it wanted to, it only takes business where it can add the most value which thereby keeps its margins high. Now that the company is tipping the £100m mark in revenue, we think it could become more attractive to a private equity buyer.  Increasing asset efficiency and cash generation: Since FY’14A, the amount of capex it spends has been decreasing as a portion of revenue as it gets more out of its datacentre assets with a focus on higher quality revenue and has also produced increases in free cash flow.  Compelling valuation: With 90%+ recurring revenue, c40% EBITDA margins, expected growth in the mid-teens, a 7.5% maintenance FCF yield and a 2.0% dividend yield we think iomart's shares are attractively valued at 9.4x EBITDA. Our initial price target of 430p equates to 12x FY’18 EV/EBITDA and is supported by discounted cash flow analysis and a comparable company analysis. Our valuation does not include the value of potential future acquisitions and we therefore feel it is conservative.

gerri-c: Sell on the news/IOM, 'disappointed' some by refusing take-over? IOM and their continued focus on considered growth will ultimately reflect in the share-price.
worsleybird: Plays update: Iomart Iomart (IOM:AIM) 230p Shareholders in managed services data centre operator Iomart (IOM:AIM) might be a little perturbed by Host Europe’s decision to walk away from takeover talks given this week’s 12.5% share price slump to 230p. But that would be very short-termist. Our original Play of the Week at 245p (3 April) made the long-run investment case, and we stick firmly to our guns now that management can get on with the day job without distraction. Play update IOM Many in the City are puzzled by the share price weakness for much of 2014 but, as we did on 31 July, we remind readers of Iomart’s consistent buy-and-build growth, 49% earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) margins, and 90%-odd recurring revenues. Management’s confidence in meeting expectations this year is another plus implying 21% revenue and 24% EBITDA growth to £67.2 million and £29.2 million respectively. We believe medium to long-term shareholders will be left laughing last, and longest. We continue to see long-term upside potential in the stock with perhaps 350p or 400p not an unrealistic target.
worsleybird: Article shares mag July 14 Managed services data centre operator Iomart (IOM:AIM) surprised the market last week by admitting to receiving two takeover offers, one at 275p per share, then another at 285p. We are not in the least bit shocked that management wasted no time in firmly rejecting both bids and believe that a far higher offer is required to tempt shareholders. A Shares Play of the Week most recently 3 April at 245p, we remind readers to consider Iomart’s consistent buy-and-build growth, 49% earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) margins, and 90%-odd recurring revenues. Management took money off the table last year 1 October 2013 at 275p via a placing, and analysts agree that to giving those investors a reasonable return must be a bare minimum from any takeover. That the share price has budged less than 10% since the announcement shows that a successful bid is unlikely, but you never know. We continue to see long-term upside potential in the stock with perhaps 350p or 400p not out of the question, assuming management is allowed to get on with its day job. (SF)
nermil: Pulled this from III today Will Cinven up bid for iomart? By Lee Wild | Thu, 24th July 2014 - 14:13 Cloud computing provider iomart (IOM) has admitted receiving two approaches from an IT firm owned by Cinven, but rejected both. Understandably, the City also thinks the business is worth much more, but a retreat in the share price from early highs suggests they're not entirely confident of a better offer from the private equity house. An initial approach from Host Europe Holdings on 13 June priced iomart at 275p, but was quickly increased to 285p, valuing iomart at over £300 million. "The independent directors concluded that both offers undervalued iomart and accordingly, both were rejected," the company said in a brief statement Thursday. It's obvious why. Iomart shares were trading at 285p as recently as February and had been as high as 322p only last September. It makes money, too. Strip out amortisation of acquired intangible assets (amassed following recent acquisitions) and pre-tax profit surged by 37% last year to £14.6 million on revenue up 29% to £55.6 million. "With the high level of revenue visibility we enjoy, we have begun the 2015 financial year in a strong position. I look forward to another exciting year of growth and look ahead with considerable confidence," said chairman Ian Ritchie in May. Arden Partners is clearly a big fan. "We believe Iomart is likely to continue to make earnings enhancing acquisitions and believe that this, combined with organic growth, can help drive the share price to 600p within two years," it said after the results. "We maintain our buy rating and 415p price target. We believe now is a good time for investors to revisit the stock." And there's certainly evidence that iomart is worth more. Cinven paid 11.3 times adjusted earnings before interest, depreciation and amortisation for host Europe last year, yet its current offer values iomart at just 10.5 times share price Angel's forecasts for the current financial year. iomart is exposed to structural growth drivers - businesses increasingly utilise part, or all, of their IT via the cloud to take advantage of the cloud's scaleability and operating (rather than capital) cost based structure," says share price Angel. "A recent report from Parallels (an IT virtualisation and automation provider) estimates that the UK Small/Medium Business (SMB) cloud market will grow from £1.4 billion in 2013 to £2.5 billion in 2016." It expects adjusted earnings per share to grow 23% this year to 13.1p and by 16% to 15.2p in 2016. That's a premium to the sector, but full deserved given that strong organic growth. Cinven knows that and has the money to raise its cash offer. Under the City's Takeover Code rules, it must do so by 5pm on 21 August. For the record, share price Angel thinks iomart shares are worth 300p, and both finnCap and Peel Hunt said 325p post-results.
gnnmartin: The FT yesterday (5th) carried a column headed "Cloud price war is bad news for technology industry's old guard". I find it hard to judge if it will affect IOMart, but to quote the FT: "The cost of renting a gigabyte of storage on one of the Google's servers, for instance, has just been slashed from 10 cents a month to 4 cents". Could this (the Google action) have triggered the slide in IOM share price? Nigel Martin
