Vp plc - "5279;;Delivering growth in uncertain markets", new research report here: 

Vp’s interims confirm another solid performance and continued growth despite the challenging backdrop. Revenue increased by 2.4% to £190.9m and adjusted PBT by 1.9% to £21.9m. This is >50% of our full year forecast (trimmed by c.4% to bring us in line with consensus).

Infrastructure demand has driven a positive H1 performance for Vp’s Groundforce, Torrent and TPA businesses. Vp’s experience is consistent with the latest construction industry data, which showsinfrastructure demand offsetting weakness in general construction and housebuilding. Vp is well positioned to benefit when these softer markets return to growth.

The period was notable for the change in leadership with Anna Bielby succeeding Neil Stothard as Group Chief Executive. Keith Winstanley has been appointed Group CFO and joins the Group in January 2024. We expect the refreshed management team to build on the Group’s strong foundations, with Digital innovation and ESG commitment at the forefront of Group strategy.

Following recent share price moves, Vp still trades at a marked discount to its immediate peers and its historic average rating. Over the long term, Vp has traded on a P/E rating of c.12x and the valuation at today’s share price represents a 30% discount to this level. We maintain our Fair Value estimate of £10.90 per share.

Trading update looks OK. ("Challenging" in construction, but that's no surprise.)

H1 results 28/11.

Well, the share price is now about half where it was when it was put up for sale..

What about all that debt here though, isnt that off-putting to any potential acquirer? They say they are in the process of re-financing and will make an announcement before the interims but with rates going up with them owing so much they are not in a great position to negotiate very good terms..

In turn that could be a big drag on future performance especially if the housing market and construction etc fall into a slump.

Today's change at the top of Vp plc is a major milestone for the business.

After >25 years, existing CEO Neil Stothard has decided to retire & hang up his boots (Neil was also apparently an accomplished Oxbridge rugby blue in his day).

Transferring the baton to existing CFO Anna Bielby from 1st Sept.

For investors, I have been covering Vp for almost a decade, and believe this astute transition will work like clockwork.

Sure Neil's leadership, strategic direction & commercial acumen will be sorely missed.

However having spoken to Anna on a number of occasions - I equally know she is a highly capable executive, and will successfully lead Vp plc into the next stages of its life.

Better still, the stock at 575p, looks incredibly under-valued, trading on a 7.2x FY'24 PER.

Thanks, I hold RIII already which has VP as a top holding, may buy a small
amount as a direct holding.

The dividend yield at the current price is 5.75%.

We published a new note today on Vp plc who published in-line numbers & a positive outlook, despite experiencing softer conditions in some end markets. Indeed impressively, FY’23 revenues, adjusted PBTA, EPS & ROCE came in at £371.5m (+6% vs LY), £40.5m (+4%), 79p (+11%) & 14.4% respectively. This reflects solid performances in UK infrastructure (e.g. energy, rail & water) and RMI, augmented by a bounce back in International (AirPac & TR), where EBIT margins expanded to 8.1% (+4.9%) on sales up 23.9% to £38.1m.

This puts the stock (at 650p) on attractive trailing EV/EBITDA, EV/EBIT & PE multiples of 4.3x, 8.6x and 8.2x – whilst similarly paying a generous 4.2% dividend yield. We believe this is simply too cheap for a best-in-class, GDP resilient business with a proven track record.

On track to again grow profitably in FY’24 (new note from Equity Development)

Today’s “in line” FY23 trading update from Vp reiterates that it had made “good progress within its core markets” since the interims in Nov’22. It has benefitted from strength in civil engineering (eg highways) and infrastructure (eg water, rail & energy), alongside successfully lifting prices to cover input inflation as well as rightsizing some parts of the group to further reduce costs.

Elsewhere, the international energy & testing divisions also performed well, while residential housing has stabilised at lower levels - partly supported by robust RMI activity where millions of properties need modernisation.

As such, we retain our projections and £11.30/share valuation. Based on forecasted FY’23 revenues, adjusted PBTA and EPS of £365.5m, £40.2m & 75.9p (+6.5% YoY) respectively - climbing to £376.5m, £43.3m and 81.3p (7.2%) in FY’24. This in turn puts the stock (at 670p) on attractive FY’24 EV/EBITDA, EV/EBIT & PE multiples of 4.2x, 8.2x and 8.2x – whilst paying a 6.0% dividend yield. We believe this is simply far too cheap for a best-in-class, economically resilient business with a proven track record through thick & thin.
