It's peoples' perception and uncertainty. I think some other outcome has caused the real blip......

Also it's outsourcing - they are going to have to outsource community care as they can't run it all out of the NHS budget - this MER work won't be regarded as NHS spend imo. CR

Labour plans to cap outsourcers at a 5% margin is hurting this.

Snippet from "Shares" today; Snoozebox units readied Snoozebox’s (ZZZ:AIM) deal to provide accommodation for Ealing Council social housing tenants could be up-and-running by October this year, according to contract partner Mears (MER). Along with the social housing and care outsourcer, Snoozebox signed a deal with the council in March to help alleviate a social housing shortage in west London. Commenting on the deal after his company’s full-year results update today, Mears chief executive David Miles says the deal structure means Snoozebox will earn profits up-front, while Mears is to receive service revenues over the course of the let.

A good statement and prospects look better than the chart shows. Will probably be holding for some time. What's FCF?

Liberum - Buy for Mears - Target £5.15: FY 14 earnings will be in-line and cash slightly better. Market concerns surrounding the order book are overdone and have created an opportunity: we still expect double digit earnings growth (Morrison margin normalisation is the key driver); there are growing Housing Management opportunities; and Torbay is a strategically significant contract win. CY 15E P/E of 11x and 8% FCF yield are too cheap. BUY.

Well done cestnous: "As Sky News has reported - based on other NHS England statistics - there are record numbers of hospital beds 'blocked' by healthy patients who can't be discharged because there are no care beds for them in the community" http://news.sky.com/story/1404936/a-and-e-crisis-more-patients-not-to-blame And: From Dec 15th: "Mears" or "the Group") Appointment as Preferred Bidder Mears, the provider of support services to the Social Housing and Care sectors in the UK, is pleased to announce that it has been appointed preferred bidder by Torbay & Southern Devon NHS Trust ('Torbay' or 'the Trust') for Living Well@Home Services. It is anticipated that the contract will be awarded in January 2015 and will be for a minimum five year term with three possible one-year extensions. We understand this to be the first time that a contract of this type has been let to a single prime contractor in the UK. The Trust has responsibility for all community NHS and Adult Social Care activities in the area. Mears will deliver a full range of community based services including personal care and more complex services such as health care at home, community support, mental health and learning disabilities support. The Trust currently spends in excess of GBP10 million per annum on home care and support services. As prime contractor, Mears will also be responsible for working in partnership with the Trust to integrate IT systems and drive future innovation in service development. The Trust specifically wanted a long term strategic partner who is able to demonstrate a commitment to integrated working and the development of services that push the boundaries of quality care and support. Outcome-based payments will be implemented as soon as possible within the contract period. This new contract is expected to commence in April 2015. The contract is designed to provide the flexibility for other services such as sheltered housing and a seven day response service, to be considered in the future. Commenting, David Miles, Chief Executive of Mears, said: "We entered the Care market in 2007 with a clear strategic vision that the market would develop in a similar way to Social Housing. Notably, we expected to see a shift towards outcome-based contracts, where vendor payments are based on the quality of the outcome for the recipient rather than simply based on the time spent in delivering the service. We also expected to see customers move toward awarding contracts for longer terms to fewer providers, who could provide broader services and who could also assist in driving efficiencies within clients' cost bases. We have positioned ourselves as a high quality business focused upon service delivery in readiness for the market change. The speed of change has been slow however strong momentum has now built up which endorses our strategy. "We absolutely share the vision for Torbay and recognise there is a lot of excellent care already delivered. A significant role within the contract is harmonising standards, integrating IT systems and achieving great quality for all clients. Local providers will continue to play a key role in the delivery of care and support in Torbay. "The anticipated award of this Torbay contract is another crucial milestone for Mears and represents further strong development in the UK Care market. While still early days, there are indications now that a number of other Local Authorities are looking to follow the lead of Wiltshire County Council and now Torbay" ------------------------------ Which is one reason why I've been buying on the recent lows - many more social care contracts to come imi. All imo/dyor etc CR
