 I assume that the RWS share price has plummeted as a result of worries that AI may render their product redundant. Even though it can be thought of as a hurdle for the translation industry, automation is the foundation of RWS's approach. The group's unique machine-learning technology is used by the company's large translator pool to do machine translation post-editing (MTPE). MTPE helps RWS boost profitability and take market share by enhancing translation production and efficiency.

Instead of endangering RWS, automation is promoting its long-term growth and resiliency. Thanks to its solid balance sheet, well-covered dividend, and potential for future margin growth, RWS is a dependable income opportunity.

'This is a never before seen environment'
I doubt it. They certainly have not been coming clean about their business over the past 2 years or so. The share price (a 75% drop in 2 years) told you the actual story as usual. The situation is likely still worse than they are letting on.

Wiil RWS survive? If they do they are now likely to be taken over very cheaply. How many times has one seen that scenario over the years with AIM stocks?

Belatedly replying to the 2000 launch price comment......

RWS was a reverse takeover back in late 2003. So disregard any share price action before then.

Looking at the chart over the past year it was about this time that the "we're thinking about making a bid" statement came out of one of the PE houses. The share price shot up but nothing materialised.......not sure why. Since then the share price seems to have traded fairly neatly between £4ish at the top and £2.70ish at the bottom. The market as a whole currently looks in better shape then this time last year and when the next set of numbers come out from RWS in June they should reflect a further 12 months of post merger rationalisation. There might also be scope for an acquisition announcement. Absent a market crash, I'm thinking that there is more upside than down from here.

The share price is now below the level at which the CEO bought 65,000 shares last October.
I hope that Private Equity do not come sniffing around.

RWS seems taking a bit of a battering of late - presumably because it has disclosed a business relationship with SVP which has been bailed out in the UK. Even then, the biggest interface with SVP seems to be via a syndicated loan where they are holding onto SVP's cash via a partial loan drawdown. Don't know what the loan documentation says (and believe me when I say it will say a lot) but if I were RWS I would be looking to set off the loan drawdown against any other amounts due from SVP. Bankers have been using the set off technique for centuries. This outfit has no debt and the trading appears to be holding up. Despite this the share price is in free fall. Am I missing something here?

It is rather odd what's happening to the sp, considering this was listed on AIM at 400p more than 20 years ago (not accounting for any share offers since). A shockingly poor performance, although on fundamentals it's performed well, increasing eps solidly for most years. I guess it's another one of those shares the market loves to hate. But then most AIM stocks seem to have have taken a serious drubbing over the year.

On last years's normalised eps, the PER is about 19, which is still on the high side, but the share price is no longer in dangerously overvalued territory like it was 2 years ago. Could see another 20% lopped off the sp, but they'd be good value by that stage.

Update: RWS

Another IHT Portfolio holding, RWS, was rumoured to be a takeover target last year. The patent translation specialist’s shares had fallen sharply following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. However, no bid was ultimately made.

Since then, the company’s share price has risen about 17pc. And while it still trades down 5pc since being added to our IHT portfolio in December 2017, full-year results released last month highlight its improving performance and long-term capital return potential.

Crucially, it has made faster-than-expected progress in transitioning towards a subscription-based business model that offers greater stability during a period of economic uncertainty. It also delivered a 160 basis point increase in gross margin at a time when many companies have struggled to maintain profitability amid extreme levels of inflation.

Profitability was aided by a renewed focus on higher-margin contracts, cost control and the increasing use of a recently launched in-house production platform. This contributed to a 51pc rise in pre-tax profit for the year. The company’s strong cash flow and £72m net cash position mean that it is well placed to pivot from being a potential acquiree to capitalising on undervalued peers while stock market valuations are depressed.

Trading on an adjusted price-to-earnings ratio of about 15, RWS offers good value for money. It is yet to fulfil its potential but has the financial standing, business model and market position to generate improving share price performance as the global economy gradually recovers. Hold.

RWS Holdings plc reported final results for the year ended 30 September 2022 this morning. Revenue was up 8% to £749.2m, adjusted PBT was up 17% to £135.7m and adjusted basic EPS was up 12% to 26.6p. The balance sheet strengthened with net cash up to £71.9m. The 17% increase in adjusted profit before tax reflects the full year effect of synergies from the integration of SDL, operational leverage from higher translation volumes through the LXD platform and effective cost control. Valuation is average for the sector with forward PE ratio at 13x. Share price has been in a correction through 2022 so far and lacks momentum, but it does appear to be putting in a floor through H2. RWS has growth and is reasonably profitable, but it may still be a little too soon to buy. Monitor for now...

Well I've just re-read the statement and I'm not sure it says "organic growth has stalled and (y)our business model to grow further is based upon acquisition alone". In fact, organic growth is mentioned quite a lot.

One thing that may have spooked the market is the reference to the unified European Patent which in the past has had a big influence on the RWS share price. Obviously, the need to translate all patents into every EU language has been a big element of RWS business and they have been working hard to decrease their reliance on it by globalising.
