Noticed that three large share sales (totalling over £2m) went through just before market close yesterday, priced at around 1100 when the mid price was nearer to 1250.

Agree, it is undervalued.In their first 4 months their pre-tax was £18.6m, the same as what they made for their last FY.I'm hoping their latest acquisition was to maximise further their already increased margins and possibly relieve any Irish bottlenecks they may have been experiencing, rather than they have been struggling to meet demand due to supply issues.

Underpriced by market in my opinion.

Any theories on the reason for the increase this morning?

Pondered a top up yesterday-but thought I had enough already. Swithered about it but "put it off until tomorrow" to make a decision, as nothing much is likely to happen.

Ooooops :-)

James Latham plc

("James Latham" or "the Company")

Acquisition

James Latham is pleased to announce that it has acquired the entire issued share capital of Sarcon (No 155) Limited and subsidiary companies ("IJK"). The trading subsidiary, IJK Timber Group Ltd, trades as IJK Timber and Northern Hardwood, and operates from two sites in Northern Ireland, offering a comprehensive range of panel products, softwoods and hardwoods.

The Company has acquired IJK for GBP4 million, plus or minus a net asset adjustment based on estimated net assets of GBP3.5m. The consideration will be satisfied in cash from the Company's existing resources. For the year ended 30 September 2020, the turnover of IJK was GBP8.8 million and EBITDA was GBP507k. Founded in 1799 as Irvin Sellers, IJK has for many years successfully provided the Irish market with quality panel products and timber.

Commenting on the acquisition, Nick Latham, Chairman of James Latham, said: "We are delighted to have acquired IJK which will allow us to increase our panel product and timber offering in Northern Ireland. We see a great opportunity to further grow and develop our products in Northern Ireland, which will complement our Abbey Woods business in the Republic of Ireland and the business we do into Ireland from Leeds. We have known the IJK directors, Graham Knox and Peter Elwood, for many years, and are excited to be working with them and the whole IJK team and welcome them to the Latham family."

Don't quite know why it's dropped back recently tbh.As posted previously, even if they shut up shop and spend all of H2 fishing or whatever they fancy, they'd still make 75p eps for the year, so an undemanding PE of 17x.

Saw that and wondered how much of a read across to "us" there might be. Can't be bad news IMO

interesting quote from BRCK trading update this morning:

"the Taylor Maxwell timber division has delivered exceptional revenue and profitability since acquisition, as material shortages drove unprecedented price increases. Timber prices in recent weeks have since reduced from this peak but remain higher than last year."

Would guess construction firms will be stockpiling materials to try and minimise project delays, so good news for LTHM and would imagine they can easily pass any additional costs they incur to their buyers.

Reports lately of large price increases on timber (see example below), particularly sawn and plywood. Not sure how this plays for Lathams. If they maintain margins, profits rise but can they? If they absorb rises profits suffer. Demand may shrink if projects are deferred. Small builders struggling to get other materials, eg cement, may have to hold off buying timber if work is held up. Larger house builders and construction generally may review whether projects make financial sense. All in all a difficult environment to forecast impact.

Taken a few more at just under 1080p. The 25/8 trading statement looked worthy of more than the current downhill ski slope of a chart. I suppose the caveats must be things like input costs/fuel/shortage of drivers/difficulty in obtaining supplies, etc, etc-but hopefully they're shrewd enough to cope with most of these issues, or at least ameliorate them by passing what they can on to the customers.

As ever, fingers crossed :-)

I happened to come across this share yesterday, I work a couple of days a week at a timber / plywood importer & distributor. Looking at the results for the first 4 months they match. The last 2 months have been stronger than the first 2 months. August has been strong also so you can take it as read that LTHM will have made an additional 4.5 to 5m in August. September orders are also good and forward purchase prices are not falling, the Americans are buying up everything.

I agree I think profits for the year could well be 48 - 50m. Prices may well fall next year but they will never go back to what they were.

Reckon could be looking at £48m pre tax for the year. Even if they shut up shop £18.6m pre tax is 75p eps so still only on a PE of 17........unless I'm missing something obvious, this is a no brainer IMO.

so profits for the first 4 months approximate the whole of last year and trading continues strongly. Even supposing margin erosion later in the year the outcome could be conservative eps of ?130-150p this year, which indicates shares not yet fully valued, though this may be an exceptional year.

Never fall in love with a share...but LTHM comes close.
