LeoInvestorUK: psst, I'm pretty sure they have increased head count some what already (without updating web) ....... Stuff like this type of article is a bit of a give away (if read between the lines) HTTPS://www.triad.co.uk/news/digital-workspace/

On the morning of the results I wrote the following: Please refer to my results preview [on my LeoInvestorUK blog]. Quick points: * Lower turnover and profits, but higher margins, all as expected and as guided in H1. * Dividend doubled as hoped to 2p, a total of 3p and a yield of 7% at Friday’s closing price. * Cash up another £0.8m to £4.6m despite lower profits and higher interim dividend. * No obvious (to me) accounting nasties – e.g. receivables have fallen broadly in line with turnover. * No exceptional costs from legal action that previously left them under a cloud, although some distraction is acknowledged. They say that the improvement to gross margin “reflects the Group’s commitment to reduce low-margin contractor business” but the reality is that the short-term cause was a reduction in the availability of that kind of business. Although they may be chasing less of this kind of work, changes in the taxation of contractors is likely to reduce their numbers in their competitors also, and likely in the industry as a whole. Nonetheless, this is a welcome development which should support Triad in creating their own culture and competitive advantage. They plan to double fee-earning staff numbers and indeed they are advertising on their website for a large number of permanent positions (as well as contract positions), but with limited progress to date as average headcount has fallen slightly since FY 2018. They are the fourth biggest government supplier in their market. They warn on increased competition in public sector contracts. On the positive side they have a base of reliable income derived from their GIS specialism. In terms of Brexit, I note that a company like Triad may benefit as increased reliance is based on staff from outside the EU who must be sponsored by a permanent employer for a visa. Such staff are somewhat tied to their employer and are in any case likely to be more loyal. Cash now makes up £4.6m of their £6.9m market captialisation and does not appear to be especially seasonal. How much is free cash is always a matter of opinion, and with an increased reliance on permanent staff perhaps they need to retain more to cover salaries of staff “on the bench” during a downturn. Diluted EPS is 5.44p which puts them on a PE of 8 which doesn’t seem especially cheap given the falling earnings trend, the low quality and lumpy nature of some of their business. However if you consider the 29p / share cash to be mostly free, and consider the falling earnings have at least slowed then with a share price of 43p the adjusted PE of under 4 they look like a bargain. If you believe they can return to growth then it is easy to see very significant upside in the share. I currently hold a medium-sized position and hope to add a little at the bell before the market reacts to the lifting of uncertainty over costs of legal action and wakes up to (what I believe is) underlying value.

Buywell3. Even if profits collapse to zero there is enough cash to pay Dividends for the next 12 years.

Maybe so Net, but I’m trying to make my assets sweat, rather than curl up at the edges waiting for something to happen :) Eg, my decision to abandon ship and stick it in WEY last month was a pearler (it doubled). If the market looks anaemic then I might ship some into TRD purely for defensive reasons but not just now. I admire your loyalty to TRD though.

buywell3: (a) definitely LESS EU IT staff coming here (b) politics might not allow others come either.... (c) work has to continue... This means window of opportunity for SMALL UK based IT companies to fill in the void.

If TRD perform like they did last year I think dividends will take a hit/stop Because it could go break-even like what I said last post Government contracts .... whilst a couple of years ago looked ok In today's messy political quagmire ... buywell gives this a thumbs down I shan't be investing ... but thankyou

bones: come on, within a couple of years Triad will have more money in the bank then its market cap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Each year that is another 500K whacked into the high interest account. It cant go down much but it can go up loads. the cash is like a BOTTOM LINE to any fall. The rise can be due to anything. Risk Reward says... BUY.

Agree with you Jane Deer on those points. Net, its good that the company sees a longer term benefit in bolstering headcount, although this is to supplant contractors due to legislation in part, I guess. Growth is some way off I fear. My overriding thought is that the management at board level is desperately in need of an injection of fresh blood, or the company needs to go private if the majority Rigg/Makar block is staying in place. This is preventing any hope of a takeover at a premium.

Agree valuation is bonkers, but route to resolve it is still unclear. 1) Intentions of large s/h still unclear; 2) aging management team, with no clear succession plan; 3) unclear whether history with large shareholder would act as a poison pill if management decided to try to find a buyer for the company; 4) unclear impact of introduction of off-rolling reforms in April 2020.

Bones: they did say they aim to DOUBLE number of employees this year. That is quite big news The company has set ambitious targets in terms of recruitment of consultants. By the end of the year, we hope to double permanent consultant numbers with year on year increases after that. A number of these consultants will have work-winning responsibilities and it is likely we will need to recruit additional business development specialists to bolster the work-winning effort.

The issue now is that they are up against 30-50 competitors on tenders and there is a lag in bedding in higher numbers of employees and converting them to earnings. The outlook is at best neutral - can be summed up as “We are doing our best in a tough environment”. Clearly the attraction here is a 7% yield and plenty of cash to sustain or improve it. Most definitely an income share now and could well attract buyers. Unfortunately, TRD’s size means that so many income funds will find them way below radar or threshold for buying in size.

The flip side is profits nearly halved Which if they drop by the same amount next year means around break even IMO Profit after tax: GBP0.89m (2018: GBP1.62m)

Enterprise value just over £2m for a company making net profits of around £1m a year, these are clearly way too cheap.

Agree 100%; should be close to double where it now is IMO.
