cantrememberthis2: Scaring punters on Metro, he should be ashamed of himself, trying to get punters to sell on fear with an outrageous share price target of 250p for metro yet placing was done at 100% above that level. Awful person. Sums it up really.
sunnybeachboy: Yeah your right and that is why they could ruin the share price even lower than my 280 prediction
albert zog: Debt is a killer. The net debt was already said to be c63m. On this new Staffline profit downgrade, the gearing will thus be c3x. But the risk must be on the downside. Eg company has bust its lending covenants. The banks get very squiffy about this sort of thing. Balance sheet is a big problem. Hence a meaty share placing is on the cards, but at what price ? Why will there be a rebound in share price ?
cantrememberthis2: Dont forget General Equity Partners Master Fund LP who have bought 4.7% recently so free float 73%. Noted in 2015 profit region £28m with share price 800p odd. Debt here was through acquisition so that's not a worry. Also roughly 5% stock traded if you spilt buy sell. Tells me shorter had a field day. Any further drops ill add. Note recent RNSs that significant progress been made on audit... So suspect 2018 results inbound next few days or weeks. Dividend soon After.... 331p vs 800p... With fib 61.8% do the maths. Think gap up Monday with funds lined up to buy more from the off. GLA DYOR Imo
tcarter66208: What is happening with this, great company .. absolutely dead share price
doubleorquits: We may not quite have bust the billion that was the target of Andy Hogarth but we were close enough and now I look forward to the next five years: "Our new plan, the fourth since we became a listed company, is during the next five years to grow underlying diluted Earnings Per Share to 200p, a 77% increase on the 112.6p reported this year. To achieve this target, we will continue to achieve strong organic growth. In addition, we will continue to seek further acquisitions in either current or complimentary new sectors." Pullen knows the business and finances of the company so should be a capable successor to Hogarth. So let's look forward to eps growth to 200p and put it on a modest PE of 10 for £20 share price with dividends increasing to 45-50p. Maybe not explosive growth but will do for this long-term holder.
cwa1: Satisfactory looking update:-
flagon: This morning - FinnCap Staffline (BUY) Framework position secured, contracts next The share price is factoring in significant risk on Staffline’s ability to replace its Government contracts and weather any storm that Brexit produces. However, Staffline is the only company to have won a place in all seven regions of the new Work and Health Programme framework, flexible labour (such as that provided by Staffline) is an essential part of the UK economy and the group has a proven ability to continue to grow against changing market conditions. We expect contract wins to be announced throughout 2017 and reiterate our Buy recommendation. Guy Hewett 020 7220 0549
rivaldo: Cheers zho - here's the full article: "Buy Staffline: it's growing fast and undervalued Richard Evans 01 February 2017 Andy Hogarth, chief executive of Staffline, the recruitment firm, certainly believes in clear and ambitious targets. At the end of 2010 he said he wanted to “treble the treble” by growing the company’s sales and profits over the following three years (the business had already trebled in size since its flotation on Aim 2004). When he achieved that goal he set himself a new one: to “burst the billion”, by which he meant £1bn in sales, along with profits of £30m, by 2017. The profit element of the target was later increased to £50m following an acquisition. While City analysts’ forecasts currently fall a little short of the goal, at £930m of sales and £45m of profit on the “Ebitda” measure, it would be rash to write off Mr Hogarth’s chances too early, according to one fund manager who knows him well. “Andy Hogarth is an individual we have known for 10 years and he has a huge amount of drive, energy and vision,” Ken Wotton, manager of the Wood Street Microcap fund, told Questor. “He has successfully executed on the vision and has grown the business very materially. “He has been clear to the markets about his financial targets – it is rare for chief executives to be so explicit – and has then achieved them. So we are big supporters of his and believe there is a good chance that he will ‘burst the billion’ this year. While some of the growth will have to come from acquisitions, Andy has a good record in that respect.” Staffline operates in two areas: blue-collar recruitment and “employability”, which involves helping unemployed people return to work under government schemes. The former is a big market, worth about £8bn a year across the country and despite its rapid growth Staffline still accounts for just 8pc of it. “The company is a meaningful player but there is plenty of scope for further growth”, Mr Wotton said. Although margins in this part of Staffline’s business are relatively low at about 4pc, it is the faster growing of the two divisions and it largely serves non-cyclical parts of the economy – 70pc of revenues come from the food sector (customers include Tesco (Frankfurt: 852647 - news) and Asda) and much of the rest from online retail. Margins are higher in the “employability” division, at about 15pc, although growth prospects are to some extent limited by the Government’s system of appointing firms to operate return-to-work schemes on a regional basis: it will be hard to increase revenues organically unless the firm wins the contract for a new region. However, the company is well-placed to win such contracts, with top-quartile performance in achieving the scheme’s goals along with competitive pricing, Mr Wotton said. The division could also grow by acquisition, as the successful purchase of A4e in 2015 showed, while profits can improve as a result of increased efficiency. The combination of the two lines of business is unique in Britain, giving the company scope for long-term synergies. Last week’s results for the 2016 full year showed a 26pc rise in sales, just under half of which was organic growth, while earnings before interest and tax rose by 32pc. These results were marginally ahead of analysts’ expectations, despite the fact that the Brexit vote took place halfway through the year. The management said the company had not seen any “material impact” from the referendum result. Nonetheless, the vote still hit the share price, which had already fallen significantly from a peak of about £16. Shares (Berlin: DI6.BE - news) fell as low as about 750p before recovering some of the lost ground to close at £10.73 yesterday. A falling share price in conjunction with rising profits means a much lower “rating” or price-to-earnings ratio, of course. The shares now trade at about nine times forecast earnings for 2017. “If the firm can deliver on its targets and Brexit fears prove unfounded, we can expect some of the fall in the p/e ratio to be undone,” Mr Wotton said. Questor likes executives and fund managers who have “skin in the game” and Mr Hogarth owns about 6pc of Staffline, while Mr Wotton has a “significant” holding in his firm’s funds. Mark Slater, another fund manager Questor admires, is another long-term holder of the shares. He said Staffline had “a fantastic track record of organic growth”. Questor says: Buy Ticker: STAF "
flagon: Motley Fool comment A dirt cheap cyclical stock Also reporting today was recruitment company Staffline (LSE: STAF). It expects to deliver results for the full year which are in line with market expectations. Demand within the staffing business has remained robust throughout the second half of the year, while the PeoplePlus division has also delivered impressive results. Clearly, the outlook for the UK and European economy is challenging and this is reflected in Staffline’s forecasts. It’s expected to grow its bottom line by just 3% in 2017, which is around half the wider market growth rate. However, its uncertain outlook appears to be adequately priced-in, with the company having a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 7.5. As such, a 25% rise in its share price would leave it with a P/E ratio of 9.4. This would still represent good value for money. As well as growth potential, Staffline also offers a yield of 3.1%. Dividends are covered 4.3 times by profit, which shows that they could move significantly higher over the medium term and still leave the company in a sound financial position. Link -> hTTp://
