Your just so wrong, your a fool to think I'm wolly, because I don't sing to your tune, and explain the transparency of the update, seeing as you have all the answers

wolly, what is wrong with you? Just can't break the habit of trying to bash Kier? You still look like an idiot; calling yourself bathboy makes no difference. You called Kier wrong for two years. You should know when to give up.

Biggest difference between costain/galliford, and kier is that they appear to be in a full cash positive position, similar size turnover. Kier seeing how the cash raise went, it was unfortunate that they didn't aim higher. Kier update this week, was at best vague, because the ultimate debt level is still not stated, even with the cash raise/KL sale,

Yesterday sicko seemed very interested in Galliford and Costain's results as a pointer to the numbers for Kier. Today you seem a lot less interested sicko. Could it be because the story doesn't support your gloom-and-doom predictions?

GALLIFORD TRY DUCKS IMPACT OF MATERIALS SHORTAGES AND PRICE HIKES.
Galliford Try said it has so far managed to avoid adverse impacts from the present wave of materials shortages and inflation in an upbeat end-of-year trading update this morning.

You have also overstated cash received for sale of KL. They netted £90m after £10m pension contribution and sale costs.

Disagree that ten small jobs of £10m has a lower risk profile than one large job of £100m.

Interesting Leon - and more than happy to discuss. I just don't want to upset too many people as has happened before, particularly when Costain is mentioned. They (Costain) haven't told us much today either, which is irritating.

I do accept that the trade finance number is a grey area - for me it is simply that without it the number would be in net debt. But it's true that you can say that about trade payables - so where do you draw the line? They have said they are ceasing this - so it will not be an issue in future.

On the cash generation for the past 6 months, I do think I am right in principle - if they have the same level of debt for a six month average compared with the previous year, and the most recent average includes an element for the reduction of some £330m for a limited period, then the business must have consumed cash. It may be a timing thing, or it may be linked to the £50m delayed tax being paid, or it may underlying - we don't know.

Maybe best to wait until the numbers to see more clearly with the results.

peters..I`m just surprised he can read!


Leon, do not encourage him..We already have War and peace in three volumes and the cost shareprice is circa 58.. Stagnant at best.


Forks ...nice one!

imastu, trade finance of 110? Kier's total trade payables number last reported is £255.8m including the infamous KEPS scheme but if KEPS trade finance wasn't available, many, perhaps most, and possibly all of those suppliers would simply be in the trade payables line. Strangely enough, Costain's 2020 trade payables is almost identical at £256m on almost a quarter of the turnover, although I am not arguing with your thesis that Costain is good value. There is also the smaller argument that KEPS doesn't incur financing cost for Kier, so arguably not the same kind of debt as financing debt, but it is a creative scheme from the previous management so I'm not saying it shouldn't go. It is a liability like many other items, but it is also balanced by trade receivables. You can't categorise supplier outgoings as debt without also discussing trade incoming. They are two sides of the same coin, so it's not correct to say one is debt and the incoming can be ignored.

Whether Costain is better value than Kier depends on other factors too like reach into the market and competitive advantage, and that is one of Kier's strengths. Look at the number of frameworks and Kier's customer base. It is huge. Also, Kier has taken the 'low risk' strategy of delivering hundreds of low value projects with low impact from any that go wrong. Costain's roads disaster shows a different level of risk exposure, and that might be one of the things reducing investor appetite for a business with a better balance sheet (currently). Also there is the little matter of today's update showing declining numbers on the few metrics discussed. I'm sure Costain will come good eventually - contract wins for the year put Costain only a few places behind Kier, so possible big growth is on the horizon.

Also you dismiss Kier's last six months of earnings, stated as 3% margin on almost £3.5bn turnover and say 'call it zero'. I say, call it £50m paying off the o/s tax. To my mind, with supplier debt balanced by incoming revenue, Kier's explicit debt position is at least £160m better than your estimate.

Bathboy, you're reading an article from 21st April.

I thought Sparty told us that debt is being redefined.

Bet the finance directors of construction companies do not agree.

Costain and Galiford are better value than Kier. And yet the market thinks different.


That profit you use for generating a multiple has not been achieved by Kier.
