davidosh: Yes it looks very positive overall with the key metrics going in the right direction.... Norish plc (AIM: NSH), is pleased to announce its preliminary results for the year ended 31 December 2018. Financial Highlights · Profit before tax increased by 17.6% to £1.94m (2017: £1.65m) · Diluted adjusted Eps increased by 22% to 5p (2017: 4.1p) · Group revenue decreased by 12.4% to £36.8m (2017: £42.0m) · Dividend increased by 9% to 1.80 €cent (2017: 1.65 €cent) · Net debt was reduced from £5.4m at start of year to £4.9m at year end. · Interest cover has increased to 11.4 times (2017: 8.7 times) We anticipate another year of strong profit growth for the group in 2019. In our cold store division, the year has got off to a strong start in the first two months of the year. Management continues to focus on maximising both sales mix and pricing, in a market that is currently more favorable to cold storage businesses, than it has been at any time in the most recent past. Focus on underlying cost improvement will continue. We look forward to further improving returns in this division during the current year. The UK frozen food sector is currently the fastest growing retail category, growing at 4% per annum. A combination of factors is driving this growth including growth in online shopping premiumisation of the category, as well as providing a solution to food waste. This growth comes against a background of a cold store market which has seen a lack of significant investment over an extended number of years. Despite the current volatility in its underlying markets, our protein sourcing division is well placed to deliver in line with expectation on the back of its low risk operating model. Our dairy farming division is now performing strongly. Work in relation to our major dairy project is ongoing at pace. We have assembled a very experienced team, to drive this initiative, to achieve the market position we have set for this development over a two to four-year time frame.
resourceful: more good results price getting high any idea whats going on
drmaccers: Interesting to get such a big placement away at that price in these market conditions? Miton hopefully to a big extra pile. I smell a blog post coming
resourceful: is that a spark of interest in the share
wexboy: Company: Norish Prior Post(s): 2012 & 2013 Ticker: NSH:LN Price: GBP 39.5p I've been consistently bullish on Norish, and equally scathing of its management for the past two years. This bullish view was rewarded early in 2013, with the share price doubling in the space of 7 months. But bad management almost inevitably wins out, and here we are again...the share price is back trading in the 30-40p range it's mostly occupied for the past 5 years. Clearly I had a rush of blood to the head last year, when I highlighted the stock was potentially a triple. Not an incorrect analysis, necessarily, but that kind of upside presumes management's at least willing to consider unlocking (and/or increasing) the company's intrinsic value. But when you're faced instead with apathetic management, and (it seems) shareholders, that upside may never be realized... Obviously one has to presume a binary perspective & outcome here. On the one hand, we should simply consider the equity tied up in the business. Each year management inevitably promises things can only get better (due to their hard-working efforts, of course), but nothing ever materializes – savings always seem to end up absorbed by another set-back. The numbers tell the real story, as usual – cold storage revenue's up a pathetic 6.5% in the past 4 years, while profitability's consistently declined vs. a paltry 2009 profit of GBP 0.8 million. [I tell a lie - profitability's stabilized now at GBP (79) K pa in both 2012 & 2013!]. A 1.0 P/B multiple (on equity of GBP 8.3 M) seems more than adequate – in fact, it's damn generous when you consider Norish's negligible returns on equity. But management has again promised a decent return next year (and the 2013 continuing ops profit seems to confirm it), and fortunately equity's mostly composed of land & warehouses which should be fairly valued & readily saleable. On the other hand, the company's worth far more if the cold storage business was simply liquidated & the commodity (meat) trading business was run (or sold off) as a stand-alone business. Let's simplify the liquidation & assume total PPE of 15.4 M can be sold off (for book value) & used to retire net debt of 7.8 M – that's a realized NAV of 7.6 M. We also need to value the Townview Foods meat business: Unfortunately, 2013 was the year of the horse meat scandal (er, what's wrong with horse meat?!), so revenue fell (say) 35% to 11.4 M (from an estimated 17.5 M in 2012) & the operating margin fell to 3.7% (compared to an historical average of about 6.7%). I think it's fair to presume the most recent figures are distorted, so let's presume an average operating margin of 5.2% – this deserves a 0.45 P/S multiple. In similar fashion we'll apply this multiple to an average revenue figure of 14.5 M. Now, let's average the two approaches – which seems the only fair way to nail down a valuation here. It also reflects my renewed ambivalence regarding management. When the 2013 interims were published, I was enormously encouraged by the plan to sell the York & Leeds facilities. Surely this was sanity & a first/tentative step towards liquidation... But since then, we've seen two dilutive share issuances (at 40p & 35p) & a purchase of the company's Birmingham site – certainly not the actions of a management team which seems at all interested in protecting & realizing shareholder value. Finally, before we lay out our valuation, we should note the latest 2.2 M placing/open offer is still in process – but it's obviously dilutive, so we'll assume it gets completed & include it in our valuation to be conservative: ((GBP 8.3 M Equity * 1.0 P/B + 7.6 M Cold Storage NAV + 14.5 M Meat Revenue * 0.45 P/S) / 2 + 2.2 M New Equity * 95%) / (11.2 M Old + 6.3 M New) Shares = GBP 76p Norish remains substantially undervalued. But remember this upside's only an average: If management's really that dreadful, they'll continue to pour good money after bad into cold storage & the superior Townview business is sure to end up caught in its clutches too. On the other hand, the upside may be much higher, if management: a) finally realizes the only value in cold storage is the actual sales value of the underlying property portfolio, and b) focusing all investment on Townview, which I suspect is capable of delivering on a multi-year high growth revenue strategy. An aggressive share buyback programme wouldn't bloody hurt either..! Price Target: GBP 76p Upside/(Downside): 93%
resourceful: nowe we know why push the price to get a placing away
resourceful: guys whats going on price rises but no shares trade whats in this
wexboy: Well, the share price jump came before, so it wasn't their results. I guess somebody was a buyer, and didn't mind paying up to get shares. Unfortunately, this has always been a terrible spread/volume share, and management don't really seem to care. If you were a buyer, you'd probably also have to pay the offer & higher, or choose to be v patient in building your holding (and risk the price running away from you). Obviously, you may then face the same problem (and the spread) if you wanted to get out... To compensate, Norish is one of those shares you should either avoid, or you should treat it as a potential long-term holding. Demanding a higher upside potential than usual also improves your margin of safety with shares like this.
resourceful: wexboy thanks for this has anyone any knowledge why the price rose also why the bid offer prices are not true you cannot buy or sell at the published prices
wexboy: 2013 – The Great Irish Share Valuation Project (Part X) I take a look at Norish, plus a batch of other Irish stocks: Cheers, Wexboy
