redartbmud: Must be phenomenal, if the share price is -5%
robow: very quiet here but Questor in the Daily Telegraph has an update Keith Ashworth-Lord also holds RWS, this time in his top 10. On Tuesday the company, which specialises in translating patents, announced buoyant interim figures: sales rose by 23pc compared with the same period last year to £172.3m, while pre-tax profits increased by 51pc to £27.6m, or by 24pc to £35.6m on an “adjusted̶1; basis. Net debt fell by 23pc to £63.9m while the interim dividend was increased by 17pc to 1.75pc a share. Questor: hold Ticker: RWS Share price at close: 612p
orange1: The RWS share price has been quite perky the last few days. Could an acquisition be in the air. The company said this in their recent trading statement: ¨Whilst we are focused upon organic growth and excellent cross-selling opportunities from our recent acquisitions, merger activity in the translation industry has accelerated markedly, offering interesting possibilities. We continue to review selective potential acquisitions which would extend our capabilities, technology platforms or geographical presence in the IP support services and specialist translation spaces. ¨
jeffian: This from 'Questor' in today's Telegraph - "Update: RWS Holdings Questor has been a long-standing enthusiast for RWS, the patent translation group, thanks to its hard-to-replicate business model and record of successful acquisitions. The shares lost 15pc after a profits warning in April, caused partly by exchange rate movements. However, the group released its half-year report last week and the shares jumped by 10pc. Keith Ashworth-Lord, who runs the SDL UK Buffettology fund, said: “The results were good and have steadied investors’ nerves. We have continued to buy, picking up stock at prices as low as 347p.” Questor says: hold Ticker: RWS Share price at close: 407.5p"
jeffian: From Questor in Daily Telegraph - "Update: RWS Holdings On April 24 RWS, the patent translation service regularly tipped here, issued a trading update that sent the shares falling by about 15pc. The group said recent weakness in the dollar, in which it earns much of its revenue, would hit profits. We asked two fund managers who hold the stock for their reaction. Keith Ashworth-Lord, of the SDL UK Buffettology fund, said: “It is always worrying to get a profit warning – albeit a minor one – in the wake of the volume of acquisition activity that RWS has pursued lately. “I had been watching the appropriate financial ratios for any sign that the earlier two big purchases, CTi and Luz, were not firing. I have not yet seen such a deterioration. I am further reassured by having Andrew Brode at the helm. He is a consummate manager and will be fixated on making sure that matters do not get worse. The free cash flow yield is 4.5pc, the return on equity is high teens and the balance sheet relatively strong. With this in mind, we have bought more shares at 385p.” Anthony Cross and Julian Fosh, of Liontrust’s UK Smaller Companies fund, said: “We view this setback as a short-term hiccup and have taken the opportunity to buy into share price weakness. The effect of currency trends on profitability is very much a case of swings and roundabouts, and has no impact on the attractions we have identified in RWS.” Buy."
woodhawk: I'm with you, jeffian. This has happened several times before with this share - and the recoveries have been swift. I think the inflection point is imminent. I'm not only sitting tight - albeit as a recent investor here that's not too painful - but will be adding more should there be any further significant drop in the next day or two. I fail to see the rational behind a 25% drop in the share price, and I'm not inclined to look a gift horse in the mouth. There's a nice big gap between 440p and 455p that needs filling, so that's my short term target.
woodhawk: R Ball seems to be one of those mugs who believe that his simplistic one-liners will have some bearing on the share price. Who on earth gives these idiots are creedence?
redartbmud: Share price perking up now. Volume isn't great, but Hey ho.... Onwards and upwards.
r ball: Don't think so. What's important is the forward PE. Mild profit warning and share price will tread water for 3-4 months unless there is corporate activity which is unlikely given reference to integration period.
jombaston: I agree with Alphabeta 1. no question - the deal leaked hence the price surge y'day 2. I'm also hacked off I had to pay over £4.50 to avoid dilution. This is a stock that has been well supported over the years by private investors. 3. On a more positive note, the placing and acquisition may have drawn in new institutions (and new funds in existing institutions) who otherwise would have been put off by a lower mkt cap, less liquid share (but I should still be allowed to buy at the same price!) 4. Clearly the deal is highly earnings enhancing so could support a higher share price (hence the move y'day) 5. The purchase price isn't super cheap but with a 3 yr CAGR of 26% this is a high growth company and the combined entity should be very cash generative, supporting the increased debt. On balance, I'm pleased that this will support a share price that was starting to look toppy over £5 and longer term this should help extend RWS's exceptional record of profit and dividend growth since flotation.
