mallorca 9: Share price moving up - could be a sharp rise !
mj19: Outsourced services provider Serco has announced revenue grew by 24% in the first half and profits also rose, boosted by contract wins in 2019 and the acquisition of the Naval Systems Business Unit of Alion last August, while COVID-19 had 'little effect' on profits.In its results for the six months to 30 June 2020, the company reported revenue £1.8bn, with organic growth of 15% and a 9% uplift from the Naval Systems Business Unit (NSBU) in North America acquisition.Underlying trading profit climbed 53% to £78m in the first half of the year, with NSBU adding 20%, while reported operating profit increased by £72m to £89m.Serco said its order intake during the period was 'strong' at £1.9bn, with approximately 60% of the order intake related to existing contracts being rebid or extended and 40% being new work. This took the order book from £14.1bn at the end of 2019 to £14.5bn.Group chief executive Rupert Soames called its first-half performance 'exceptionally strong' and said that while Covid-19 has had little effect on profits, 'there have been some dramatic impacts, positive and negative, on individual contracts'.Soames added: 'Pleasingly, at a time when a number of tenders have been delayed as a result of the crisis, our order intake was once again ahead of our revenues giving us a positive book-to-bill ratio.'Serco saw free cash flow increase by £80m year-on-year, as cash flow benefitted from tax payment deferrals of around £49m, although the company said that subject to trading in the second half, it intends to pay taxes deferred by the end of the year. At 8:27am: (LON:SRP) Serco Group PLC share price was -16.9p at 152.5p
cerrito: Given the forecyadt improvement in this year's performance is due to one off factors and they are reserving all judgement for next year, today's share price performance seems appropriate.

freddie ferret: Nobody seems to have commented on todays news and share price rise up to 108p before falling back to 101-102p. Up from 96p yesterday and 91p a few days back. Seems something has been leaking. ........................................................ " Highlights -- Profit performance for 2017 expected to be around the top end of previous guidance -- Closing net debt expected to be towards the lower end of previous guidance -- Strong order intake of over GBP3bn -- Definitive agreement to acquire major part of Carillion's health facilities management portfolio now signed -- Strong profit growth expected in 2018 and 2019 -- Growth thereafter more dependent upon when market demand reverts to trend" .................................................................. " For 2017, Serco expects to achieve an Underlying Trading Profit outcome around the top end of our previous guidance range of GBP65-70m; profits in the second half will be around 10% higher than in the comparable period in 2016. Revenue for the year is expected to be just under GBP3.0bn; the small reduction against previous revenue guidance includes an adverse impact of currency movements during the second half of the year and other volume and timing effects. The margin for the year will be better than previous guidance. Closing net debt at 31 December 2017 is expected to be towards the lower end of our previous guidance range of GBP150-200m; the final outcome remains subject to the timing of working capital movements around the year-end and the translation effect of prevailing currency rates at the closing balance sheet date. Closing net debt will not reflect the $20m outflow for the BTP Systems acquisition as this is expected to complete in early 2018, and similarly it does not reflect any consideration related to the Carillion health facilities management acquisition as this would only complete in phases over the course of 2018. Order intake in 2017 has been strong at over GBP3bn which represents a book-to-bill ratio of over 100%, the first time this has been achieved since 2012. Order intake includes Grafton prison in Australia which is the Group's largest ever contract win, as well as other new contracts such as those for Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, the US Army Installation Management Command and for the US Navy Fleet Readiness Centers, as well as rebids and extensions such as those for the US Patent & Trademark Office, air navigation services in the Middle East, facilities management for NHS Forth Valley and citizen services support for Hertfordshire County Council. As anticipated, the pipeline of new bid opportunities will be noticeably lower by the time we report the results for 2017, and is currently estimated to be GBP4-5bn. Refilling the pipeline is unlikely to be a smooth progression given the effect of the timing and scale of individual opportunities; however, as announced separately today, we have now signed a definitive agreement, subject to Carillion receiving shareholders' approval and the requisite third party consents, to acquire the major part of Carillion's health facilities management portfolio; these contracts have an average unexpired period of around 14 years and are expected to add around GBP1bn into our order book"
hawaly: The Questor Column: Serco shows renewed health as turnaround plan lifts profits and cuts debt: After a strong 2016 support services group Serco is slowly rehabilitating itself. Fresh progress toward Chief executive Rupert Soames’ revenue growth and profit margin targets could lead to further share price gains for patient investors. According to analysts’ forecasts sales may have bottomed last year at around £3billion and, although only minor improvements are expected in 2017 on the revenue front, profits are already on the rise. Return on sales reached 3.3% at the first-half results, on an underlying basis. December’s 10-year framework contract from the Barts Health NHS Trust suggests the company may finally be emerging from the Government’s doghouse after the criminal tagging overcharging fiasco. Further big deals would be a further assertion of Serco’s return to health. However, President Donald Trump’s plans to repeal and replace America’s Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare, must be watched, as Serco does work for the scheme. Finally, net borrowing fell to just £120 million at the end of the first half compared with £682 million when Mr. Soames took over, owing to 2015’s rights issue and the self-help programme. Serco is not without its risks and the profit targets may only be met in two to three years’ time but Serco looks to be on the way back. Questor says ‘Buy’.

davethehorse: Seems like there are still big stock overhangs to shift - SRP share price dropping quickly on any sign of weakness in the market, even on low volume
ed 123: Hybrasil. Surely shares are very very cheap? Look at post 1613. You may see your answer there. Consensus eps for 2015 is 2.74p, and 2.53 for 2016. What I can't understand is why the share price is falling so slowly. To me, a share price of 80p is a triumph of hope over reality.
