lammylover: 82.1m shares in circulation at current 72p = market capitalisation 59.1m GDP. Last year (ending 31/7/17) turnover 110.0m GDP and profit before tax 7.4m GDP. Net debt 6.0m GDP. Dividend 5.115p (7.1% at current share price) Risks - no growth forecast for this year. UK Brexit Risks, slow down on high street sales, lower margin? But 27.7% of revenue from outside UK (Germany), selling relatively small ticket items (kettles, toasters etc), selling to majority of major retailers, 74.39% of shares held by institutions (Black Rock, Shroders) and Directors. New non executive Director bought 402k shares at 93.25p in November and Chairman bought 109k at 93.25p. Just my alternative perspective for what its worth, Rich
eastbourne1982: The share price may well go up during the next year however this is a very poor business. Free cash flow in 2016 was only 700k, that is dire. Free cash flow is what makes a quality business, not made up profits to con the naive.
lammylover: Hi John = agree 100% with you. UPGS is at a crazy price, especially as principle customer is B and M and also they have customers in German market, so not totally exposed to UK retail market. The problem with this company is that it gets almost no coverage and as the bulk of shares are held by Directors and a few big funds, there hasn't been any fund buying recently. I would love to know who is selling down around 70p. Makes no sense to me and I hope for a re-rating soon. BOD could do with putting out a trade update ASAP to get share price back up to a reasonable level. Regardless with hold mine and looking forward to my big dividend payment on 30/1/18. regards Rich
muzmanoz: Yes, we need further news. H1 ends at the end of January. Maybe they are focusing on getting those numbers out but it seems like they don't do trading updates unless they consider there is fundamental news. Worth remembering that EPS for H1 2016 was 7p and the current share price is 74p. Non exec directors bought in November at 93p. But then I am a holder and the current share price is frustrating! I'm new to investing but they did get a share buy back resolution approved at the AGM. Is this standard?
lammylover: Hi She-ra Its always good to have an alternative view, so I did a bit of research into your suggestions that the BOD had just bought back some shares in order to prop up the share price. What I found was that the vast majority of shares bought a month ago were by Robbie Bell, a non executive Director who only joined UPGS on the day that the shares were admitted to AIM for trading. Hence he didn't benefit from the IPO and trouser loads of money as you mooted!. The share was admitted for trading on 1/3/2017 and he joined on exactly the same day. His big buy recently to show confidence in the company after the earlier RNS saying that growth would be flat in FY18 was a very significant 402,144 shares at 93.258p = £375K. I take this as a big positive. But its just my view.. Rich
lammylover: Hi Spider! The proposal to buy back shares was one of the resolutions at last Friday's AGM. As far as I'm aware there are no plans to buy back yet, but the fact that proposal was approved gives BOD an option to do this if they see fit. I would have expected the share price to start rising again by now following the AGM. I suspect there is still a big seller out there.....! Anyway, I'm holding for a share price recovery and dividend in January. Also the BOD bought a huge amount of shares at around 93p only a month ago, so they believe there is value to be had here, even if share isn't fancied by the market at present. Buy and hold for me at 80p. Bargain! Rich
muzmanoz: John09 I like your analysis. Good that the discounters are still expanding. An article I read in a retail journal from June says that Action has 150 stores in Germany which should be increased to 180 by the end of the year. The chain opened 197 new stores in 2016, in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. From past company info, B&M and Action are Up's biggest customers. Looks promising. Good that the warehouse at Heron Mill is now ready if they are increasingly supplying goods on a landed basis and online. I seem to remember reading (maybe from the prospectus) that supply on a landed basis carried a higher margin. The article in SCSW didn't tell us anything we didn't already know. I wonder whether they met the directors before the trading update. Also, the trading update and SCSW say there are 4 "pillars to growth" European discounters 65% growth UK Supermarkets 95% Online sales 64% International ?? (sales into Netherlands and France have been strong) But overall growth is only 39%. Anyone any ideas as to why overall growth is low compared to the "pillars" The only thing I could come up with is either international sales have fallen or that they have provided private branded goods and that these sales have reduced or been cannibalised by own branded sales but I have nothing to back that up. I'm a holder and think that the share price is now undervalued given forecasts, discounters continuing expansion, Heron Mill, scope for growth of brands. Hopefully the share price will start increasing now although we might need more news/sight of the final results in November. DYOR
muzmanoz: It seems wrong that the directors are entitled to bonuses for hitting EBITDA targets for the fy17 when the share price has tanked. Mind you, on current form, they might struggle to meet the £1.66 share price needed for future bonuses.
muzmanoz: I've just been to my local B&M. It might be my bias having watched the UPGS share price fall, but there seems to be a lot more Goodmans branded products.
grahampaul1977: Citytrader66 - I think the sell off has been overdone. On current prices, the p/e would be around 12 to 13 times, so trading at a discount to other sector peers and if we're now saying that forecast revenues and earnings will not reflect any growth, the forward p/e is now at a discount to the sector. And all of this is even before the impact of an improved current year performance has been baked into the share price. I realise that a lot of folk have had their fingers burnt quite badly on this stock, but even ignoring any long term growth prospects the share price now looks cheap. For what its worth, I got in at £1.18 per share and I still think that on those levels there is room for some gains which admittedly might come over a matter of weeks or months rather than days.
