bench2: It almost feels as though the late afternoon plunge in Kier has impacted the Keller share price . Ok KLR has some big debt but not on the same scale as KIE
jonwig: From Citywire: Engineering company Keller (KLR) has issued its second profit warning in three months, as its Asia Pacific division continued to disappoint. Numis analyst Christen Hjorth retained his ‘hold’ recommendation and reduced the target price to 720p down from over £10. ‘Keller has issued an unscheduled trading update stating that 2016 results are now expected to be circa 15% below current market estimates, mainly due to continued underperformance in the Asia Pacific division. ‘We therefore reduce our 2016 earnings forecast by 15% and our 2017 forecast by 10%. The share price is currently down 24% and, based on this and our updated numbers, Keller now trades on 2016 price/earnings ratio of circa 9x and a dividend yield of circa 4%.’ Although management has made positive statements regarding the outlook for the company, Hjorth said that it was understandable that investors could be sceptical of management guidance following Keller’s second profit warning since August. The shares closed 27% or £2.41 lower at 644.5p.
huttonr: Share price is bouncing nicely - I took advantage of the silly 20% drop after the results to buy a few more at 825

huttonr: I used to think that I understood the actions of the Keller share price - but considering the last few months, I have concluded that I have made another mistake. I'm wondering about buying a few more as this price trend seems to be getting rather silly - or I'm missing something? Generally the world is on an uptrend, infrastructure work will be increasing, Keller seem to be in the right places and have the reputation to succeed but .... a continued downward trend?
huttonr: Keller share price does seem to bob around much more than other construction companies - any ideas why?
jonwig: Lifted from Alphaville, Panmure comment: Another profit warning from Keller is not going to help the share price! The main reasons appear to be Australia, with an element of one-off contract losses. Assuming these are swiftly resolved, then confidence may return to the shares. The support of the dividend, on greatly reduced earnings, is now in doubt. IMS update. Another disappointing update from Keller as its mature markets remain difficult and growth market is only offering better opportunities in the medium term. It has flagged that, while revenue is in line with market expectations, the PTP range is likely to be £21-23m, so c35% below current market expectations. Divisional. The US is likely to see revenue and profit ahead of last year's performance, although market conditions remain competitive, with margins at historically low levels. In Europe, Poland is performing well but other markets are difficult. The group has seen increased competition in Asia, while the Middle East is unchanged. In Australia the resources sector remains strong but non-resources are tough. This has been compounded by some problem contracts. The small UK market is extremely difficult. Impact on forecasts. There is a conference call at 0900 when we will firm up numbers but, clearly, our PTP has to fall from its current £34.5m to c£22m. Where it goes next year depends on what levels of one-off hits are in the FY 2011E numbers. The big question now is on the dividend and whether its can be sustained at current levels, with new EPS likely to be around the historic dividend level (22.8p).
jonwig: Well, the share price chart (above) is a rollercoaster, and I can see where you get your 30% upside target from. From here it does look as though the slump in US construction is longer and deeper than expected - and can we expect a programme of public works to help a recovery? I personally doubt that. KLR are beginning to look less sure-footed than in the past. Even so, as you say, there are attractions at this level.
jonwig: Broker snippets. Liberum: In addition to our earlier comments, we now cut FY 2012 EPS by 35% from 69.7p to 46.0p. We also reduce our dividend to flat at 22.8p. We increase our FY 2011 net debt from £74m to £90m. n McKinney in the US the key source of the downgrade – McKinney a $70m business has not dropped its prices quickly enough. Volumes have fallen sharply and it will swing sharply from profit to loss. This will lead to questions about Keller's federated model and whether it can control its business well enough. Australia weakness longer than expected – There is a £4m reduction to estimates. Whilst we have clearly known about the floods, management argue that the impact lasted longer than they had expected. n Middle East and North Africa has ben more disruptive than feared – While Keller is not in Libya, there is virtually no activity in its businesses in Egypt, Morocco and Algeria. Saudi has already been very slow year to date. n Continued order book growth – Demand for infrastructure is still strong. The cause of the weakness in trading in the US has been commercial. n Conclusion – We are surprise that the share price has not fallen by more like the scale of the FY 2012 downgrade, ie 35%. Confidence in forecasts is likely to be seriously undermined by the 47% cut to H1 estimates in June. Citigroup: Unlike last year, it is not the residentially exposed Suncoast business which is especially weak, but rather the small-end commercial segments. McKinney, Anderson and Heyward Baker are the main subsidiaries suffering. McKinney in particular has seen a sharp reversal after a solid 2010 and now looks likely to be loss making in 2011E versus profit of £3-4m last year. In addition, management said it had underestimated the impact of Australian flooding, which is now thought to have cost the company £4m (was £1-2m previously). CEMEA still looks likely to deliver around 10% growth YoY although the UK may slip back to £1-2m losses again; we were previously looking for breakeven. Clearly this significant deferral of recovery is highly disappointing and we will reviewour model post further discussions with management. Keller has again shown itself to be later cycle than we had thought and patience is now required by investors. The fact that the issues are price related and not volume, which would be much harder to bounce back from, is scant consolation but is worth remembering once the dust settles.
