jeffian: From Citywire fyi - "Learning Technologies looks on track to hit targets Digital education group Learning Technologies (LTG) is close to reaching its earnings targets after a period of feverish M&A, says Peel Hunt. Analyst Jessica Pok retained her ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of 225p on the stock. The shares sold off heavily after annual results were published on Thursday, sliding 9.6%. They then rebounded somewhat on Friday, closing 3%, or 4.6p, higher at 156p. ‘After a period of intense M&A, we expect management’s main focus will be on integrating new acquisitions and growing the core business,’ she said. ‘There will be stronger opportunities for cross-selling and upselling to clients.’ Pok said management was making ‘good progress’ in achieving its full year 2022 financial targets. The group is ‘now only £5m short of its 2022 £66m earnings target’, the analyst estimated."
jeffian: The results were well flagged in trading updates but they are just 'respectable in the circumstances' rather than "very strong". A PER of 63x-odd requires quite some growth, so I can understand why the share price might soften until it becomes clearer we are back on track.
davr0s: You form it by having a bias towards where you think the share price should be/go. Had a look at this a few days ago but decided to wait until after results - good job too. And no I'm not buying this atm given today's price reaction to news
aconceptisabrick: Very strong results at the end of a coronavirus ravaged year and in line with expectations.Outlook statement optimistic with a strong balance sheet and maintained dividend.Onwards and upwards to a £2 share price this Spring IMHO.
aimingupward2: Another acquisition this morning, this time more substantial at $50m. “The acquisition of Bridge significantly extends LTG's mid-enterprise learning and talent offering. Bridge is highly complementary to PeopleFluent, which serves the large enterprise market, and BreezyHR, which serves the small and medium-sized business market. The acquisition is strategically important because it enables LTG to provide a holistic learning and talent development offering to meet the needs of small, mid-size and large enterprises, three distinct groups with varying requirements. The combination and integration of Bridge with LTG's other portfolio offerings, including the recently acquired Reflektive engagement and analytics platform, will create opportunities for cross-sell and upsell-led growth within the Group.” Seems to be well received by the market.
aimingupward2: Another good acquisition: Learning Technologies Group plc “has acquired UK-based PDT Global ('The People Development Team'), a leading provider of online Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) training solutions, for an initial cash consideration of GBP13.2 million. PDT Global's founders and majority shareholders .... will join the leadership team of Affirmity, LTG's existing D&I business. The integration of PDT Global dramatically expands Affirmity's global reach and capabilities within the high-growth D&I training and consulting sector. PDT Global delivered unaudited revenue of c.GBP4.8 million in FY20 and EBIT of c.GBP2.0 million. The combination with LTG's Affirmity business is compelling and we expect PDT Global to continue its fast growth within LTG.” The acquisition “was funded from LTG's cash resources and is expected to be immediately earnings accretive.”
aimingupward2: Capita's share price fell on the news whereas LTG has risen since. I wonder if this is because it is thought that slim margins and the spread over a number of years means that it's no real loss for LTG and that there are other and better opportunities.
investor0109: The Runt- as to how news of a share placing is received by investors has largely to do with the rationale for issuing. In this instance, a placing is necessary for LTG to continue delivering high growth and fund further acquisitions, therefore I consider the news to be a very positive statement of intent and commitment to its goals. Over the longer term, I have little doubt that the extra cash raised by this placing will earn investors a great return, though as to what the share price will do tomorrow is far more difficult to predict. It would seem that some investors read the word 'placing' and sell in fear, having not considered the reasons behind it, so it might be that that the share price falls tomorrow. Another factor that makes this placing particularly promising in my eyes, is that company directors are putting a substantial amount of their own cash on the line. Given LTG's incredible track record, one might reasonably assume that the directors are very confident in the future of the company.
investor0109: Phillis- Agreed and believe unrealistic expectations are stunting share price growth to some extent. Investors have seen a recent acquisition and excellent results above forecast without a meaningful increase in the SP, which tells me that the market is struggling to value this stock, perhaps allowing sentiment to cloud judgment. Unfortunately, LTG's share price seems to be driven almost entirely by sentiment- anybody who remembers the baseless fall from 160p down to 60p and then back up again may agree. The market reacted very badly to Goldman's downgrading to NEUTRAL in February, though that they have just this month issued a price target of 156p ought not to be overlooked. Goldman's recent price target represents and increase of more than 30% on current prices, which is terrific considering the current economic climate. A deep and rapid sell-off immediately following share price gains indicates that whilst there is a a great deal of interest in the company, there may be a large number of short-term investors in LTG. I believe that LTG will prove most profitable as a long-term investment, so must simply weather the volatility, though frustrating at times. In the short-term, I wouldn't be surprised to see the share price fall back some 20% from current prices, with a rapid resurgence should brokers Peel Hunt and Berenberg reiterate BUY ratings and price targets around or above 150p. After all, a stock bought at 100p with a target of 150p is a very attractive proposition!
multibagger: RNS Number : 5043F Learning Technologies Group plc ("LTG", the "Group") (AIM: LTG) Proposed Acquisition of Open LMS - Provides LTG with solid foundation in the high-value open-source market - Multiple routes to enhanced growth through LTG's extensive customer base Learning Technologies Group plc, the provider of services and technologies for digital learning and talent management, is pleased to announce the proposed acquisition of the business and assets of Open LMS from Blackboard Inc for cash consideration of $31.7million (subject to some customary price adjustments), to be funded by the Group's existing cash and bank facilities. The proposed acquisition of Open LMS reinforces Learning Technologies Group as an industry leader in learning software, adding complementary expertise to the Group's existing proprietary software solutions, through the addition of expertise in the market's leading open-source Learning Management System (LMS), Moodle. It will support LTG's strategic goal to achieve run-rate revenues of GBP200 million and run-rate Adjusted EBIT of at least GBP55 million by the end of 2021. The Open LMS business will provide LTG with a solid foundation in the high-value Moodle market. Customers across the LTG portfolio will be able to benefit from the popular open-source Moodle LMS delivered across a managed SaaS platform, to create personalised learning programmes. The Moodle community brings together the education market and corporate learning market, for the development of skills to support the needs of organisations across the globe. For corporate users, it enables businesses to offer a continuous learning experience for their people wherever they are and at any time. Following completion, Open LMS will be run as a standalone brand within LTG's portfolio of best-in-class businesses. Phill Miller, Chief Learning and Innovation officer at Blackboard, will join LTG as Managing Director, bringing significant experience and expertise in the global Moodle market. LTG will support Open LMS through its existing operational infrastructure and, under a partnership arrangement, LTG will resell Blackboard's suite of products that integrate with Moodle to meet the demands of current and future customers. Open LMS will be acquired by way of a combined asset carve-out and entity acquisition from Blackboard. In the year ended 31 December 2019 the Open LMS business generated unaudited revenues of c.$16 million. Approximately 70% of Open LMS's revenue is derived from recurring subscription fees. The proposed acquisition is expected to complete within 30 days. Jonathan Satchell, Chief Executive of Learning Technologies Group, said: "I am excited to expand LTG's capabilities through the acquisition of Blackboard's market-leading Moodle expert, Open LMS. The corporate learning market is showing increased interest in this type of scaleable technology, and we will now have the capability to meet customer demand. I am excited that Phill Miller has agreed to join LTG to drive forward our investment in open-source and to expand LTG's position in this important market segment." Phill Miller, Chief Learning and Innovation Officer at Blackboard, said: "I'm thrilled to be joining LTG and to have the opportunity to deliver on the strong growth potential for Open LMS as part of LTG's portfolio of best in breed technologies for learning and talent management. We have built a highly compelling product offering, and now have the opportunity to establish a clear market leadership position in the popular Moodle market - enabling businesses to focus on developing the skills required for the modern workforce." Andrew Brode, Chairman of Learning Technologies Group, said: "The addition of Open LMS demonstrates LTG's unique position as a consolidator in the market for learning and talent management software and services. It follows our most recent acquisition, BreezyHR, acquired in April 2019, which has enjoyed excellent growth with revenues increasing by c.60% in FY19. We expect the acquisition of Open LMS to be attractively earnings enhancing. The benefits of our broad portfolio are recognised by LTG's corporate customers, and this opens up an array of opportunities to greatly enhance the revenue of the Open LMS business."
