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.
orange1: The most recent company announcement reveals all:
microscope: Agree jeffian, management have a proven track record that should be the envy of most on AIM. The price rise in recent days is not their fault and I suspect the leak will not have come from RWS's end. Brode made an acquisition at LTG recently after a reported nine months of negotiation, and there wasn't a sniff of a move in the share price in the days leading up to the announcement.. It is this company's modus operandi, to grow by selective (large) acquisitions and they have all come up trumps for investors thus far. This to me looks another superb deal. The one disappointment would be the non-invitation for PIs, but if you go to a supermarket there are always "bulk buy" offers, and I guess that's why institutions get priority, though it's a shame in this case. No reason i can see for investors with a long term view to sell at this level, I'm sure returns will continue to grow superbly. Cracking business and as the numbers new posters have come up with, set to remain so. And don't forget the existing businesses continue to increase profits.
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.
apad: Dunno, jg.. I just reported the link. Paucity of real data, as you observed earlier. I agree with your opinion that it is a matter of trust in the management. I have only returned to watching RWS after the recent share price drift and have bought a first holding, so I haven't had chance to gain the confidence you have. apad
martinthebrave: Stockopedia's Graham Neary likes the results - RWS Holdings (LON:RWS) Share price: 354p (+4.5%) No. shares: 215.8m Market cap: £764m Acquisition and Placing AGM Statement A strong statement to open today's news: "Since [30 September 2016], the Group has traded strongly with underlying growth bolstered by favourable currency movements. We are achieving meaningful new client wins in both of our core activities, intellectual property and Life Sciences and increased levels of business from a number of our established clients. As a result, profits for the first quarter were comfortably ahead of management's expectations. I must admit that I haven't studied this company before, but it sounds quite interesting: RWS Group is internationally renowned for providing high-quality translation, intellectual property and language support services, which we deliver through our in-house translators, searchers and technical experts. Excuse my ramblings, but shouldn't IP translation and search be secular growth industries in today's economy? RWS has had 13 successive years of growth in sales & profits - is that a mark of their individual brilliance as a company, or is it mostly to do with growth trends in their markets? I'd be curious to learn more. Anyway, today's $82.5 million acquisition is for the life sciences division: The Acquisition strengthens the Group's leading position in global Life Sciences both in the US and Europe, building upon and complementing the October 2015 acquisition of Corporate Translations Inc. ("CTi") and creating a full service offering. It also enhances the platform for expansion into Asia, building on the existing Chinese and Japanese presence of other RWS divisions. The Acquisition also brings strong cross-selling opportunities through enhanced exposure to the important West Coast patent market and potentially bringing new clients to the wider Group. It also provides diversification to the Group (including currency) and further visibility across the value chain. It's good to see a combination of funding sources being used: the placing, cash and a bank term loan, with most of it coming the placing (worth $50 million at GBPUSD = 1.25). The Value Rank is not a big fan of this stock, at a PE ratio of 27x. Without going into it in any more detail, it wouldn't surprise me if this stock was in fact decent value here - specialist, niche services with huge growth momentum behind them are often worth paying up for.
jombaston: By my reckoning RWS has been trading on 15x 2015 EBITDA. So if the enlarged group were to trade on the same multiple of EBITDA that would suggest a 10% enhancement to the share price. Given that this is clearly a compatible business you might want to add a few synergies on top. I haven't seen any broker research but I guess you could construct a credible case for testing the all-time highs at some point soon
robinnicolson: Very good results this morning and a nice rise in the share price. As usual the best companies have the quietest boards.
jeffian: Pleased to see that the options were granted at market price. That's exactly the way it should be. So many companies hand out 'incentive shares' at a nominal figure. This way the interests of management and shareholders are truly both aligned - i.e. management have to achieve growth in the share price to achieve their bonus.
