Liberum note… Orchard Funding Group* (BUY, TP 81p from 66p) – Significant earnings upgrades Following a strong 1H22 where Orchard Funding experienced a faster than expected rate of recovery following the impact of the pandemic, today’s brief trading update for the nine months to 31 April 2022 highlights the continuation of the strong performance. Driven by a higher than anticipated income and careful cost management, the group now expects FY22 profit after tax to exceed prior expectations by over 25%. The growth is driven by a significant increase in the loan book, although at lower than historic margins. As a result, we increase our FY22 and FY23 net profits by 32% and 39% respectively and increase our TP to 81p (from 66p) while maintaining our BUY rating.

Yes, a very positive update again. Definitely recovering very well. The price is too cheap, but I guess there's a lot of value in the market at the moment.

No mention of the dividend but forecasts for 23 show the 3p continuing. I wouldn’t rule out an increase at some point.

Thanks for that bb2. Do they mention anything about the dividend expectaions in their comment, or is the above the sum total of it? Cheers

Short but very sweet, hope you don't mind if I post the best bit bb2 :-) Trading Update Orchard Funding Group, the finance company which specialises in insurance premium finance and the professions funding market, provides the following trading update for the nine months ended 30(th) April 2022 (the "Period"). As a result of our strong performance in the Period, driven by higher than anticipated income and careful management of costs, the Board now expects profit after tax for the year to 31 July 2022 to exceed prior expectations by over 25 per cent.

Yes, all a bit surprising that there is no interest. Patience needed, but at least its heading in the right direction again.

It’s actually quite the opposite. They lend small amounts, mostly for non-discretionary car insurance loans. You know that option you get at the end of an online quote asking if you want to pay it up front or spread it over 12 months? If you take the second option you are opting to take a loan from Orchard or a company like Orchard. As such they hardly ever have an impairment, how many people just flat don’t pay their car insurance? I’m amazed the market hasn’t responded to the news that it’s back to making 1.6m annually more positively. At today’s price that’s around a 15% return and a 30% discount to their tangible equity, equity which seldom has an impairment. I would have thought there would be a stampede for a rock solid 15% return in the current interest rate environment. Having said that, it’s not the first time I’ve been bewildered by the lack of interest in a profitable small cap with a healthy balance sheet. I felt the same about Air Partner recently and then all of a sudden it was bought out at a 50% premium to the share price. Hopefully the same is coming here.

Who does this tiny by market cap company (£11m) lend to and, with such a tiny market cap, how would they be affected by a defaulting borrower? Do they lend only to higher risk customers and businesses who cannot get loans elsewhere?

97peter - noted. I suppose Close Brothers might be interested at some point as well given they are a direct (and much bigger) competitor.

CWA1 yes surprising lack of trades, just what was my little top up this morning as I wanted to get in 1st thing but need not have rushed. I have medium term timeline so if the share price takes a while to get rising it just gives me more time to accumulate.

Hi Topinvest, no that is Stuart H, see the top bit of the RNS, he holds 6.5% and 1,333, 333 shares. I have currently only 1,111,111 and will stick to this and take div’s until end of 2023 and then decide where next or to long term hold for bank licence and maybe even a 3 bagger takeover, when someone like HSBC, Barclays, Lloyds or AXA, AON or Hastings , Aviva see Orchard for the jewels and growth potential underlying it!!! Definitely well run and a steady Eddy growth!

It seems that ORCH marches to the beat of its own drum :-) Not much interest on results days and just the one published trade!

Yes, very good results. Full year EPS should be upgraded to maybe 7.5-8p from 5.8p? I can't quite convince myself to buy any more, but possibly a very good entry point for new investors.
