Absolutely

Share buy backs should be squeezing this higher as well IMO/DYOR
Posted at 11/4/2024 09:50 by qs99
Indeed, c.£300m EV, with pre IFRS16 EBITDA at c.£118m....

Continued share buybacks will help, nice yield, let's hope there is more of the TAM for it to pick up and also improve margins....DYOR

By my calcs, could be an EV of 390M going forward.Based on a cash adjusted forward PE of 12, a share price of 500p could be achieved. And that could be Conservative! DYOR.

So c.£343m market cap per ADVFN
Net Cash £105m AFTER last year's spend on share bb and divis of nearly £50m!
EV c.£240m say
£1bn revenues
FY 22 EBITDA post IFRS 16 adj was c.£95m

So EV/EBITDA ratio is just ludicrous IMO with this sort of cash generation no?

DYOR/Views?

Extraordinary cash performance given £49m spent on dividends and share buybacks in 2023.

really quiet board

have bought a load today and will continue to invest as IMO this just looks the wrong price & nice yield as well to help out....

Looks decent! Any forecasts anyone could share going forward?
Posted at 08/12/2022 10:02 by sphere25
The upgrades keep coming and they are confident on next year too. Alot of doom and gloom already in the price here.

In this challenging environment, not only continued performance, but continued outperformance. Defensive, value, shift from growth to value of late, decent yield, not burdened with debt. They were getting so much work they had to turn it down. There could have been even more outperformance as the last report showed labour issues stifling further growth.

After all that, it still doesn't go anywhere - just farts about in a range. Maybe the economic downturn will end up being severe.

OBR forecasts for growth:

2023: -1.4%
2024: +1.3%
2025: +2.6%

Unemployment to peak at 4.9%. Perhaps all that is miles off the mark with much stickier inflation and higher rates, or higher for alot longer than expected and maybe that also feeds into the likes of MER. If those figures are wrong but not miles out, then there is hope next year for many companies. It is just difficult to call the exact bottom.

The wider markets aren't pricing in a severe downturn, that's for sure. It makes you wonder why MER doesn't attract at least a multiple of ten. Clearly not going to get a punchy multiple here, but just looking at some basic numbers:

-->Profit to come in at £33.5m
-->Average daily net cash £40m
-->Versus market cap of £215m

It is almost being priced to go bust. Clearly must be missing alot for it not be at least somewhere in that 250p-300p range on a small multiple expansion.

I find it hard to not trade these sorts of charts, but I am in, and staying in. Maybe it won't bore your brains out someday and pop sharply higher. Perhaps some stale bulls to clear first.

Until then...

Yawn.

All imo
