patriciab1: The PE although much lower than for Sophos is quite high at 39. What is the reason for that? Is that something to worry about in terms of share price growth potential?
jerseyman1: Sophos is being bought by PE at 36% premium, today. Hence some movement in NCC price......hopefully sector is now in vogue and we get dragged along, although NCC and Sophos in very different sub sectors....just don't tell the scribblers!
cerrito: I see that all key resolutions very comfortably passed at the AGM and indeed there were no votes against the remuneration report with about 3% abstentions. Also at 71% a pretty high voter turn out; I checked the turnover in shareholders between the two last annual reports. We seem to have said goodbye since July 2018 to Fidelity who had 3.7% as well as Neptune with 7%+ and B Gifford with 3.4% and there has been a 4% increase by L General. The upshot is that the %age held by those with 3%+ has decreased from 33.7% to 26%. I have not had time to go through the AR but did note that in geographical breakdown of revenue there was YOY a good increase in North America from £68m to £83m whereas there was a revenue decline in the UK and in ROW/Europe a stately increase from £46m to £52m. No surprise in the share price decrease since the AGM Trading report which was more focused on structures than actual results. PS Just seen that they have updated brokers consensus forecasts as at Sept 2 on the Investors section of the website. Once again full marks to them and why other companies cannot do this, heaven only knows. hxxps:// PPS No immediate plans to buy or sell
mazarin: There were some wild swings between 178 and 184 in the space of an hour affecting share price towards the end of trading yesterday. As to the cause, I can only guess and assume Institutions were conducting ‘bot’ trades moving mutually held shares from from one fund into another. Unless anyone else can suggest a reason? The city is capable of all sorts of shenanigans
muddyw: Because intelligent people recognise that companies produce 100% transparent information in releases to the market, and in no way employ creative accounting / positive spin to protect their share price and investors' confidence in their potential.
jerseyman1: Agreed. C£1m reduction in expected full year EBIT at £34m cf consensus at c£35m gives rise to 25% fall in share price. Ridiculous.
andrewbaker: Yep, impressive share price jump today, but not fully justified, IMHO. So they are back in profit after a loss last year, and have a new finance director; but so what? Work reviews on NCC are mixed, and not that good. Management don't seem to be as good as perhaps one would like. They are in a growing field of business but have plenty of competition. I said last month, I sold a chunk at a profit, and kept some, as much for a takeover as anything else. On balance, I'm staying with that. If the price drops back below say, 200p, I may buy a few back: but I'm not going to rush in at this time. Maybe other holders may want to take some profits on today's rise (or trim losses/exposure)?
boozey: Maybe, and I am not one of those, but a CFO quitting is a red flag - and the share price invariably falls after announcement. NCC is no exception to this rule. There is no smoke without fire and the real life boardroom incompetence and subsequent shake ups at NCC are all long since in the public domain. The question is whether we have seen the last of it - on last week's evidence obviously not. It takes a very special Board of Directors to make such a mess of a company in the hottest of hot industries. How such people get employed in the first place at such a senior level is beyond me. You could put a bunch of A level Business Studies students in their place and they would make a far better job of it.
tonysss13: IN THE KNOW: New Profit Warning Could Put NCC In Play - Shore [22-February-2017] Sam Unsted LONDON (Alliance News) - NCC Group could become a takeover target or indeed put itself up for sale following its latest profit warning, a statement which suggests a serious slowdown for its Assurance arm in recent weeks, analysts said. Shares in NCC were down 26% at 93.25 pence Wednesday morning. On Tuesday, NCC issued another profit warning for its current financial year and said it has initiated a strategic review of the business, which will include a review of its Assurance arm. NCC - which provides software escrow and verification, cyber security consulting and managed services - said trading in its Assurance arm in the year to the end of May will be "significantly lower" than it had previously anticipated. Due to this, NCC said its adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation for the year will be around 20% lower than the GBP45.5 million to GBP47.5 million range it provided in December, which had already been downgraded. In light of the deteriorating trading, NCC said it will initiated a review of its business and will closely consider its Assurance arm, with regards to how it operates and how it sells its products. The review will also consider how NCC can better use its assets and resources across the business. In light of its "seemingly comforting" interim results in January, Shore Capital's Robin Speakman and Ben McSkelly said the warning from NCC on Tuesday suggests a "severe drop-off" in the performance of the Assurance division. "Given the strategic position that NCC holds in the provision of IT Assurance and security services, where we believe long term demand continues to grow, we believe that NCC should be regarded as potentially being in play," the analysts said, suggesting NCC may become a takeover target following the battering it shares have taken. The analysts reckon the position of NCC Chief Executive Rob Cotton will now come under "heavy scrutiny" and that the strategic review may well see a sale or break-up of the group considered. Shore downgraded NCC to Hold from Buy. N+1 Singer analyst Oliver Knott said an "extended period of uncertainty" is now on the horizon for NCC, which will "make it hard for investors to gain confidence" in the company in the short term. Yet, Knott said he sees "fundamental value" in NCC stock. The company's Escrow arm is not impacted by the warning and, at the current share price, its Assurance arm trades at only 5 times calendarised 2017 earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation. Still, while this looks like an attractive multiple for a "rare cybersecurity asset", Knott said he will await more clarity on the underlying nature of the issues NCC faces. He kept his recommendation on NCC at Hold with an unchanged 138p price target.
masurenguy: smokybenchod - 610: Seconduser that news is for ncc the Swedish construction company What complete and utter nonsense ! The MF article referenced in post #609 above is about this company and not some random Swedish construction company. NCC Group After rising from 200p to 370p in the last 18 months, NCC Group’s share price plummeted back to the 200p level recently on the back of its four-month trading announcement this month. The company warned of setbacks including the cancellation of three major contracts and difficulties with services contract renewals. Management said the cancellations were unrelated and that profit expectations for the year remained “in line with the board’s expectations.” However, the market clearly wasn’t convinced and NCC’s share price fell 35% in the blink of an eye. After several years of strong revenue and earnings growth, there’s no doubt NCC Group was priced for perfection. Revenues had grown from £88m in FY2012 to £209m in FY2016, CAGR of a stunning 24%, and as a result, at a share price of 370p, NCC Group was trading on a lofty P/E ratio of 32 times FY2016 earnings. That left little room for error and after warning of setbacks, sentiment towards the company has clearly deteriorated. As a shareholder, it’s extremely frustrating to see NCC Group fall 45%, however I believe there’s a lot more to come from the cyber security specialist over the long term and as such, I won’t be selling my shares. One thing I’ve learnt from investing in smaller companies than the FTSE giants is that the ride often isn’t smooth. Growth can be lumpy and acquisitions can take time to integrate. However NCC Group is operating in a fast growing industry and I believe the fundamental outlook for the company remains strong. Group revenues for the four months increased by 36% to £79.6m including organic growth of 21% and forward order books and renewals stood at £108.8m, up from £71.9m this time last year. With city analysts forecasting earnings per share of 12.8p for FY2017, NCC’s forecast P/E ratio is now just 15.6 which I believe is a steal for a company with NCC’s growth prospects.
