norbert colon: Having run my ruler crudely over the likely "considerably reduced costs" at Corp Branding I think this could equate to circa GBP 1m at the operating level (perhaps more) meaning min 4p EPS so 32-34p EPS looks very achievable. Forecasting anything with MSI as you note can be a fools game, however!
illiswilgig: I've revisited my forecast for the current year FY22 and raised my target from 31p eps to 35p eps. Just continuing at the FY21 H2 run-rate would achieve 28p eps so its not a huge hike to 35p This should be achieved mainly by reducing losses at Superstructures and Corporate Branding. I am not forecasting that these divisions break into profit - so there is some upside potential there. However MSI does have something of a track record for finding the odd banana-skin and slipping up with one or more divisio and I remain conservative with my forecasts, despite the growth potential at Defence. Which puts the shares on around 6x my FY22 forecast. I am not aware of any broker or analyst forecasts with which to compare my figures. Adjusting for the cash mountain of 23m puts it on less than 2x EV for 35p eps. Still trading at close (1.1x) book value which limits the downside? This still looks wrongly priced to me, so I've bought a few more. cheers
cjohn: I'm very happy with the results and even more so with the outlook. These were being given away at close to net cash at the end of last year, and net cash has now swollen to £23.5m against mcap of around £32m at current share price of 200p. You are right, wardy, that the corporate culture is low-key, cautious and avoids over-promising.
wardy007: Lovely stuff :o)) MSI have been buying in their shares since the price was 35p - another 300% from here would do me fine! As I said before, this management knows how to maximise value and manages the company properly without a hint of exuberance. They don't waste a penny on a NOMAD, PR etc, they know their job and their niche markets and can see where the company's going. A perfect "lock away in your ISA" stock imo (I don't bother with a pension anymore or it'd go in there too!).
tole: And some moreThe Company was informed on 24 February 2021 that on 23 February 2021 Mr Roger Lane-Smith, Senior Independent Non-Executive Director of the Company, purchased 20,000 ordinary shares of 10 pence each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at a price of 165.44 pence per Ordinary Share. The Company was further informed that on 24 February 2021 Mr Lane-Smith purchased 10,000 Ordinary Shares at a price of 165.1875 pence per Ordinary Share.
playful: More buying... The Company was informed on 3 February 2021 that on 1 February 2021 Mr Michael Bell, Executive Chairman of the Company, purchased 20,000 ordinary shares of 10 pence each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") into an ISA in his name at a price of 155 pence per Ordinary Share. The Company was further informed that on 2 February 2021 Mr Bell: (i) purchased 8,460 Ordinary Shares into an ISA in his name at a price of 161.5 pence per Ordinary Share; (ii) purchased 9,684 Ordinary Shares into an ISA in his name at a price of 165 pence per Ordinary Share; and (iii) transferred 12,597 Ordinary Shares from a personal holding into an ISA in his name at a price of 158.5 pence per Ordinary Share. Following these transactions, Mr Bell holds an interest in 2,803,901 Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 17.3% of the Company's issued share capital (excluding shares held in treasury).
gleach23: Good call tiswas! https://www.investegate.co.uk/ms-international-plc--msi-/rns/holding-s--in-company/202101210834264474M/ Actually looking at their previous Holdings RNS indicating 792,500 shares it's clear that the 2 trades of 200,000 and 592,500 reported on Monday did relate to their holding
this_is_me: I picked up a few this morning given the positive update and the low share price. I have had them on my watch list for some time and now looks to be a good time for a long term investment.
illiswilgig: there are a few things to be wary of - some of which help to explain the odd communications from the board The board doesn't really do corporate governance. Michael Bell is the executive chairman and Nicholas Bell is on the board. The rest of the board is over 70 and has been associated with the company for a long time. David Hansell (md of MSI defence since 2002) joined the company in 1962 apparently. The directors and related parties own 54% of the shares. - so it is essentially a family controlled business - Cavendish Asset management own a further 17.5%. No other holdings declared above 3%. The directors pay themselves handomely. Directors emouluments were 1.6M - thats about half the size of the profits. As the directors and family control the business - there is no way to address this issue. If you are not happy with this - do not invest. Having said that - family controlled businesses are not necessarily a bad thing. They tend to look longer term than other companies - but sometimes with the result that there can be more short term pain! This company is cash rich and its petrol station superstructures and branding businesses have been/are doing well. The defence business is in a downturn (thanks to the UK overspending upon vanity big ships and submarines leaving little business for MSI products) but if and when then R&D for the redeveloped products pays off this business can be immensely profitable. cheers
interceptor2: I did sell my small holdings here at the open and very surprised to see the share price rebound today, The outlook statement certainly read like a profit warning and feels like they are preparing the ground for a weaker new financial year. Hope I am wrong for shareholders here but I felt very uncomfortable holding such an illiquid share after reading the results and was very relieved to have sold at a better price then anticipated.
