maddox: SGE rarely gets into 'value' territory. It's a high quality firm but still going through a major transformation and currently suffers from negative Broker sentiment. So very much looking like one for you Contrarian Joe. I'm a long term holder and I can see a strongly positioned, cloud-based growth business emerging.

deanmatlazin: Market over-react i think. bought some this morning. The result is not too bad either! They still give out dividend!!

maddox: So the Q3 Update contradicts investorschampion with SGE reporting a robust trading performance in the face of Covid-19. As seen elsewhere Covid has accelerated the decline of old-style licencing and lower margin professional services, down 35% in Q3. On the other hand the growth in recurring revenue growth has continued and Sage Intaact has continued performed strongly in North America, and the launch of the product in Australia and UK are performing better than expected. New customer acquisition was lower than originally anticipated but better than was expected in the face of Covid - but is in a recovering trend. Words of caution on the outlook for customer churn, with only a slight impact seen so far, the trading conditions for SGE's SME customers are challenging and with Govt support unwinding a rise in business failures can be anticipated. So, looking at the numbers, a Q3 growth in recurring revenue of 9%, and within that a 10.6% growth in Cloud portfolio product revenue look pretty damn good in the circumstances.

martindjzz: I’ve been following SGE for a while and took the plunge today with half my normal position size. I don’t have any concerns about the company but still think we might be in for a second big market plunge.

maddox: Hi hector, yes if you want to buy SGE you need to be opportunistic to grab the best prices. That means buying when others are selling - the contrarian mindset. The market will always take more notice of a radical change in a recommendation, such as a buy to a hold or a sell, than a update to a target price. Canaccord had previously broke ranks with the overwhelmingly negative Broker sentiment - so this is just rejoining the pack. I'm not perturbed by being out of line with Broker opinion - happy to back my own analysis and judgement. It's not the most comfortable stance but highly profitable when you get it right - albeit it may take far longer than anticipated for your opinion and Mr Market's to align. Regards Maddox

maddox: In post 5399 above I discussed Phil Oakley's analysis of Sage in Investors Chronicle, where he was rather negative. His latest article (IC 7 May 20) focuses on how to spot quality companies - this based on high Return on Capital Employed and Free Cash Flow margin. For SGE, based on the latest numbers today, I calculate the ROCE as 20.5% and FCF margin 23% - which are both excellent. In his article, Phil Oakley then points to the increased uncertainty caused by Covid and then goes on to say: 'On this basis, I can see possible attractions in shares of accounting and business software provider Sage (SAGE), which looks to have a business model suited to a changing world.' Seems like he's had a reappraisal. It's nice to be in good company. Regards, Maddox

maddox: Strong Sage 1H20 ending 31 March. The statutory figs of 2% revenue growth and 38% growth in profits mask the continuing transition to Saas pricing and cloud products. The interim dividend is increased by 2.5% (5.93p) and the return of surplus cash from disposals (Sagepay and Brazil) is still under consideration but postponed due to Covid-19. The underlying metrics it's worth highlighting are: >> Organic total revenue +5.7% >> Organic recurring revenue +10.3% >> Organic operating profit +3% (reflecting narrowing margin for investment in transition) >> Subscription revenue +26% (penetration is 62% +10%) >> Sage business cloud revenue +42% (penetration 56% +12%) >> Cash conversion 127%, organic operating margin 22.8% So, the transition execution is proceeding well, with these metrics off-set by the planned decline in Software Licence and processing revenue. Some of the organic revenue growth has come from reactivation of off-licence customers but new customer acquisition to cloud-native products is accelerating. On the horizon is improved organic sales from Intacct, only recently launched in UK and Australia, but with strong performance in N.America with +31%. The hope is that this N.American performance can be replicated elsewhere. Covid-19 is going to affect the growth in 2H 2020 and some customers will most likely and sadly be lost to bankruptcy - but nothing much seen so far in April. Sage are not furloughing any staff, no redundancies and not using the Govt support schemes. The B/S is incredibly strong with £912m of cash, £400m of debt facility - and net debt £213m secured till 2025. Net debt leverage 0.5x of EBITDA. Prospects are that H2 performance will be hit by Covid, but Sage is financially strong and increasingly resilient (a Saas benefit) heading in.

maddox: Following the Q1 update it appears that Canaccord Genuity have upgraded SGE to a Buy with a share price target of 820p ('Neutral' and 770p previously). Meanwhile three others have reaffirmed their recommendations - but have all increased their share price targets: Deutsche Bank reiterates 'Sell' with a target price of 725p (650p) Credit Suisse reaffirms its 'underperform' share price target 640p (610p) Barclays reiterates 'Underweight' with a target price of 620p (580p) So Canaccord has broken ranks, it'll be interesting to see whether we get other upgrades if the positive updates continue this year.

maddox: Excellent Q1 trading update today. This provides reassurance that the transformation is being successful and the investment is paying-off. Key points: Recurring Revenue +10.7% - indicates that the SasS transition is proceeding at pace; Total Organic Revenue +6.7% - better indicates the underlying growth rate (ignoring the switching of existing customers to SaaS contracts); Sage Business Cloud +12.7% - indicating the strategic shift to a Cloud-based product offering is proceeding well. This is where SGE is 'perceived' to be weak and behind their competitors Xero and Intuit. In fact Sage are fast building a powerful Cloud business with an attractive offering of products built on a common platform (an IT service fabric as they describe it). So, whilst we're conceding a slower growth in dividend returns whilst investment in the faster pace of transformation takes place - its working well and building future value. We also have a return of capital once the SagePay disposal completes of c. £250m to come. We don't yet know how SGE intend to make this return however, if returned all in cash would equate to, I estimate, 22p/share (current div is 16.91p). Regards, Maddox

spacecake: What they said at last years (2018) outlook statement ... We expect FY19 organic operating margins to be broadly stable before the impact of around GBP60m of specifically targeted investment to accelerate the transition to SaaS, especially in product and innovation which will also enhance efficiency and effectiveness over time. Including this impact, organic operating margin will be in the range of 23%-25%, maintaining strong free cash flow as a proportion of revenue. Over time, this model will drive a sustainable acceleration in recurring revenue growth whilst enabling strong returns on investment. The organic operating margin came in at the bottom end at 23.7% and this years outlook is around 23%. Dividend growth in line with inflation. Sage seem to be doing an awful lot of work just to stand still.
