Very solid:0 AGM Statement Michelmersh Brick Holdings PLC (AIM:MBH.L), the specialist brick, land development and landfill company, announces that at its Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is to be held at 10.30 am today, Martin Warner, Chairman, will make the following statement: "Trading in 2019 has been robust with production volumes in line with expectations. Forward sales have also been positive leading the Company to expect a first half weighting to its financial performance for the year as the overall capacity of the five plants within the Group is fixed. Initial performance indicates that the acquisition of Floren in February 2019 is proving a sound investment that will contribute to the Group's trading performance and strategic options moving forward. The Group's performance to date in 2019 gives the Board confidence in achieving expectations for the full year to 31 December 2019." Pending approval by shareholders at the AGM, the final dividend in respect of the year ended 31 December 2018 of 2.14 pence per ordinary share will be paid on 28 June 2019 to members on the register on 24 May.
Should get a statement prior to the AGM tomorrow.
Been relatively frisky-by MBH's standards!-over the past few days. Long may it continue.
This IHT qualifying company ticks many boxes for investors, including a high yield a low price-to-earnings-to-growth ratio. hxxps://
I like this bit - “· The Acquisition will enhance Michelmersh's UK product portfolio and increase the Group's scale while also providing access to new European markets.” Shows the board are on the ball. Quite agree; should be a discounted rights so shareholders can participate. However it’s become quite a tradition now to stuff small shareholders.
Interesting little acquisition this morning:- Earnings enhancing from the start, is a phrase that I like to hear. Proposed placing to "friends and those and such as those" but not available to current grubby little shareholders, is one I personally don't like to hear. However I understand why they are doing it and if they get it away safely at about the current share price I suppose it will just have to be lived with.
MBH look to be in decent shape going into the next recession but I can't but think there will be better buying opportunities later in the year.
Debt reducing faster than forecast. Carlton acquisition throwing off cash faster than planned
shauney, Certainly in the South-east, both MBH and Ibstock have factories based in similar locations producing similar stock bricks. [Check on google maps] This is due to proximity of suitable clay for brick and tile making. It's hard to see how they would avoid competing with themselves in local markets. I would guess that any interest would come from elsewhere. Older members of management could well be looking for a sale. The chart is not looking very good right now. Price is contained within a descending triangle. A downbreak is confirmed with eod close below 78
Interesting words from IBST today after selling their US division and concentrating on the UK. "This divestment augments our strong underlying cashflow generation, leaving us with a strong balance sheet. Our capital allocation and shareholder return priorities remain unchanged, and we continue to assess both organic and inorganic investment options in the UK as we look to deliver long term growth." MBH a good fit?
I think the potential turn noted for late last week occurred this morning. Breakaway gap from 4/9/2018 filled today. Unexpected, I had thought it would remain unfilled for a longer time. Successful test of 50sma and 200sma on daily chart, and spelling successful without being picked up by spell checker. :-)
Potential turn 20-21/9/2018 Price testing prior Breakaway gap support zone Trendline and 200sma support
Breakaway gap up today presents a potential support zone 87-91.2 Current chart pattern tp 96.4 Historical resistance approx. 100
Paul Scott missed the t/o potential. I think this becomes more likely as the original founders move on.
Saw no mention of turning exhausted clay excavations into lucrative landfill sites, or is that yesterday’s story? Anyway a strong hold for me from the iht relief angle, and the thought that, although seemingly primitive, bricks don’t look like going out of fashion anytime soon.
Paul Scotts opinion. "These numbers look good, but the growth in revenues and gross margin seems to have come from a big acquisition. Forecast profit from 2018 to 2019 is flat, so I think it's important not to get carried away with today's strong highlights, as the growth looks to be largely one-off, due to acquiring Carlton. The balance sheet looks OK to me. The valuation seems about right. Forecast dividend yield looks alright at 3.7% Overall it looks OK, but I can't see any particular reason to rush out and buy this share - especially at a time of macro uncertainty. There could be an angle here for possible upside from surplus property, but I haven't got any information about that. With the share price having almost doubled from early 2017, and struggling to get through 100p, I do wonder if banking some profits might not be a bad idea at this stage? I'm nervous about anything housebuilding-related, because of the possible withdrawal of the Government's ridiculous "Help to Buy" scheme - which has just pushed prices up.
Cenkos; The foundations for an excellent year Michelmersh’s interims fully recognise Carlton’s acquisition (June 2017) for this first time over H1A, contributing to an overall 74% YoY improvement in CKS adj EPS to 4.3p p/s. Positive trading across the remaining group has also supplemented the acquisitive growth. While YoY growth rates will materially moderate over H2/18E, the current order book places the company firmly on course to achieve FY18E expectations. We expect 34% annual EPS growth and a material DPS uplift (+48% YoY). n H1A results – strong YoY growth: Group revenues of £23.1m (+43% YoY) reflected sales of c55m (H1/17A: 36m) bricks, c1m more than that manufactured, in the face of strong market demand across all segments. This lead to some de-stocking of reserves, and we expect this to continue in H2/18E to meet current demand. Modest, single-digit price inflation was also passed on to customers, largely reflecting cost inflation. Both gross margins (40.5%, +14%) and CKS adj EBITDA margins (25.5%, +34%) appreciated strongly, predominantly highlighting the accretive impact of Carlton. The company achieved CKS adj EBITDA of £5.9m (+91%), in-line with FY18E forecasts of £11.3m. n Successful site restructure: The group’s Michelmersh site was restructured in February, moving production of handmade bricks to Charnwood, achieving cost efficiencies. This has successfully returned the site to profitable trading. n Temporary working capital outflow: Interim net debt came in £18.1m after payment of £1.9 million in dividends and seasonal cash outflows. We expect the latter to reverse in H2/18E, with FY18E net debt expected to fall to £13.2m. n Use of material FCFs: Given the strong FCF generation expected over the course of the year (FY18E FCF of £7.7m, 10.2% yield), the company has repaid early the outstanding £1.8m of deferred consideration for Carlton. Funds of c£1.5m have also been earmarked for expansionary capex projects at Carlton this year. The company plans to invest in new equipment at the site, which will yield cost efficiencies, de-risk operational processes and give potential for near-term capacity improvements. This capex is included within our FY18E forecasts. Beyond this, we expect the company to use remaining FCFs to pay down debt. The board have stated their expectation that net debt will fall to under 1x EBITDA in FY19E, in-line with our forecasts. n Order book underpins H2/18E delivery and beyond: The group’s order book currently stands at c67m bricks (+11% YoY) and is said to be well-balanced across sectors and price points, diversifying risk. Given our expectation that Michelmersh will sell at least all their annual capacity of c100-105m bricks, this provides good visibility over H2/18E and into Q1/19. n Forecasts largely unchanged: We consider today’s results reflective of in-line trading. We expected this slightly stronger H1 delivery, given the occurrence of annual planned maintenance over H2. As such, we leave our forecasts largely unchanged, but have updated for the early payment of deferred consideration, a slightly higher FY18E and FY19 DPS (+0.1p in each year) and a marginally higher share count. The company is on course to post growth in CKS adj EPS of 34% this year. n Valuation – anomaly verses peers: Michelmersh is a more premium, niche player with higher gross margins compared to its larger, listed peers (Ibstock and Forterra). It offers materially stronger earnings growth this year versus these names. Despite this, the company is currently valued at a discount, or in-line, to these mass market players
Yes - looking good !
Decent set of results on first quick glance IMHO:- Commenting on the results, Martin Warner, Chairman of Michelmersh Brick Holdings Plc, said: "The strong growth achieved during the period reflects not only the successful acquisition and integration of Carlton but also improved sales and operational progress across our other divisions. With a robust order book for the rest of this year and into next year, and the market demand for bricks remaining strong, the outlook is positive and we are confident in meeting our full year targets."
Hi rich, hope so, will know by eod close
Price closed above 50sma. Needs close above 87.5 to confirm the Inverse Head and Shoulders pattern. Tp approx. 94.6 Potential turn 3-4/9/2018. [4 Sept date of half yr figs] Watch prior trend for likely direction. gla
A potential turn shows on the chart 14-15/8/2018
This consolidation/retrace forms the second shoulder of the INVH&S bottom pattern. Should see an increase in volume around this price level.
