rivaldo: Nice write-up on the results: Https:// "Safecharge £450m market cap SafeCharge International Group (LSE: SCH) is a UK-based payment services provider. The company provides these services to a blue-chip client base all around the world, with its proprietary payment platform connecting directly to all major card schemes including Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Reporting full-year numbers for 2017 this morning, the company revealed that it processed 174m transactions last year, a 38% increase on 2016. This pushed revenues up a healthy 7% to $111.7m, although diluted earnings per share fell 9% to 15.8 cents on the back of larger employee-related and restructuring costs. Turning to the dividend, SafeCharge operates a policy whereby it pays out 75% of adjusted EBITDA, as long as there is no material M&A activity. As a result, the company has this morning announced a full-year payout of 16.9 cents per share, a yield of 4% at the current share price. That now marks three consecutive dividend increases since the firm paid its first distribution in 2014. In this time, the payout has grown over 100%. Can investors expect more dividend growth going forward? As it stands, City analysts currently forecast a payout of 21 cents per share for 2018. At today’s share price, that equates to a yield of 5%. However, analysts’ forecasts can be a little inaccurate sometimes, so I’d approach that estimate with an element of caution. For example, today’s 16.9 cent dividend is around 11% below what analysts had pencilled in for 2017. Nonetheless, with CEO David Avgi commenting this morning that “we remain confident that our focus on higher quality revenues driven by a healthy sales pipeline will yield profitable revenue growth in 2018 and beyond,” the outlook here does look positive, in my view."
rivaldo: Continuing to look good here. One day we'll hopefully wake up to news of an acquisition from the $113m cash pile and the current share price will be left in the dust.
trentendboy: The previous poster is correct - if you look at the reasons for the profit fall they are all reasonable. Exceptional gain on Visa sale and fintech AG sale. The more interesting part of the results is the "shaping" of the customer base. I suspect this means dropping a high risk China customer or something similar. Those who hold PAYS will already know about the sale of the Asia Gateway which is what held up any sale previously. My guess is that SCH have offloaded/dropped this customer and hence the loss of profits short term. This is a shame but on the plus side it positions SCH for a takeover as they have cleared out some of the less desirable revenues. It is a way of putting up a for sale sign. I can see this recovering some of the losses so far today. They might even kick in with some share purchases themselves (270 was the last price they did this at). The results were as predicted but the names of the tier 1 customers are impressive. Not least Plus500. Check out that share price - I think revenues from there could be huge. The WeChat stuff could also be massive. Future looks good to me. I will try to find a good entry price in the next couple of hours/days.
callmebwana: The share price has fallen below the 50 Day SMA. Spread is high. I am sitting on my hands at the moment before I buy in. ATB.
nod: Teddy Sagi controls SCH as he own Northenstar (did I spell it right?).The impact of this is very similar to Playtech in its early years, where the share price largely moved up and down within quite a wide trading range.With a small free float of shares any demand pushes the price up strongly. Similarly, modest selling on concerns (usually external) had a significant impact on the share price Only when Sagi sold a significant proportion of his holding did Playtech start to rise. However, each time he sold a stake the shares would fall and then take six months to recover as these shares were acquired by investors. The impact of Sagi's sales reduces each time but due to his massive holdings it lasts many years. It is still having an impact on PTEC even though Sagi is now down to 6.6%
hpcg: Sold today. Broadly inline = below expectations. No reason to think the share price should progress so dead money at best for the next 6 months.
rivaldo: Exactly fizzypop. Unbelievable. Profits will be "broadly in line", which is code for only around 3%-4% below. Yet here the share price is down 12%! And that's with extremely bright prospects and with the share price being arguably extremely undervalued to start with. Especially given the £100m or so cash pile. Hopefully there will be a big bounce.
rivaldo: Wow - £4m of shares bought back by the company at 270p yesterday. Both a gesture of confidence that the share price is cheap and a nice clearance of stock from the market: Https://
rivaldo: Good summary of why this investor would buy SCH - and it doesn't even mention the £100m+ cash pile..... Http:// "Why I'd buy Safecharge International Group Ltd over Monitise plc By The Motley Fool Dec 2, 2016 Payments services provider Safecharge(LSE: SCH) has released an upbeat trading statement today. It shows that the company is making good progress with its strategy and is on track to meet full-year guidance. It also provides clues as to why it's a better buy than Monitise(LSE: MONI) at the moment. Strategy progress Safecharge's strategy to win tier 1 customers is progressing as planned. In new verticals, it's now processing and acquiring European card transactions for Nayax, which is a solutions provider for the unattended machine industry. This includes vending machines in over 100,000 locations worldwide. In traditional verticals, Safecharge has higher quality revenue after tier 1 client wins such as PaddyPower Betfair and Sun Bingo. This should provide it with greater stability and resilience, while also boosting its growth rate. In new markets, the company is now operating in Italy, Romania, Portugal and Poland. This increase in geographic diversity reduces the company's risk profile, while also allowing it to access potentially higher rates of growth over the medium term. And with a new office in Singapore as well as expansion within the travel and airlines market, the outlook for the business is very encouraging. Looking ahead Safecharge is forecast to record a rise in its earnings of 28% in the current year, followed by further gains of 12% next year. On their own, such strong growth rates have the potential to improve investor sentiment. However, when combined with a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 14.7, it equates to a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.7. This indicates that there's a wide margin of safety on offer, which should lead to substantial share price growth in future years. In addition to growth and value appeal, Safecharge also has excellent income prospects. It yields 5.5% from a dividend that's covered 1.2 times by profit. Alongside its high earnings growth rate, this indicates that there's scope for a brisk rise in dividends. Relative appeal The payments services market is relatively broad and highly competitive. One operator within the mobile payments space that has enjoyed success in winning major clients is Monitise. Its mobile banking platform has been popular with customers and consumers alike. And the bad news? The company hasn't been able to turn a successful product into a winning business model. For example, Monitise remains lossmaking and is forecast to be in the red in the current year. While it has the potential to turn itself around in the years ahead, Safecharge is the company that's performing well now. As such, it offers a much lower risk profile than Monitise, as well as clear catalysts to push its share price higher and a generous, well covered yield. As such, I'd buy Safecharge, but would avoid Monitise."
trentendboy: Word to the wise. Imagine the rumours are true and PTEC buy BPTY. That is a massive deal that looks like it might go through. Now tell me who does all the mcash processing for PTEC companies? Yep, you guessed correctly. So who gets the BPTY gig post takeover? Yep, you got it. Must be worth a lot on the SCH share price. Long and going longer
