All looks ok to me, no nasty surprises.

All headline numbers were positive. Revenue during 2023 grew 7% to $76.0 million (2022: $71.3 million). Statutory Profit Before Tax grew 13% to $6.2 million (2022: $5.5 million). Adjusted Profit Before Tax grew 12% to $8.7 million (2022: $7.8 million). Statutory EBITDA grew 7% to $11.8 million (2022: $11.1 million). Adjusted EBITDA grew 9% to $13.4 million (2022: $12.4 million).

Margins improved despite continued inflation in the US. Adjusted PBT margins increased to 11.5% (2022: 10.9%); Adjusted EBITDA margins increased to 17.7% (2022: 17.3%).

In terms of market capture, network sales (direct corporate sales and indirect gross sales to third parties from which franchise royalty is derived) grew approximately 3%, reaching approximately $170 million (2022: $165 million).

The balance sheet as at year-end 2023 remained strong, thus maintaining capacity for capital to be allocated to growth investments in 2024. At 31 December, the Group had cash of $15.8 million and Total Debt (Bank Debt and Deferred Payments for Acquisitions) of $22.8 million. Hence, the Group's Net Total Debt to EBITDA ratio was 0.60 and Net Total Debt to Adjusted EBITDA was 0.53. With our conservative balance sheet position, we continue to have "dry powder" to make investments during 2024 to further grow our business.

Hello

Looking at Watr for the first time. Quick question for holders:

- the Dec TU said that statutory PBT for the yr to Oct grew from $6.1 in 2022to $6.8m
- However statutory PBT for 2022 closed at $5.5m i.e. $600k lower than the yr to Oct.

Is there any seasonality here such that its loss making in Nov/Dec?

Thanks

Adam

Hi giibs1 - Why is the Total article relevant to #WATR Water Intelligence?

Water Intelligence Plc posted its Interims for the 6 months ended 30th June 2023 this morning. Results were in-line with market expectations with strong profit growth as the Group continues to execute on its long-run growth plan. Revenue increased by 9% to $38.7 million, statutory profit before tax increased by 21% to $4.2 million with basic EPS up 18% to 16.4c. The balance sheet remains strong, net cash was $1.75 million. Valuation is average with forward PE ratio at 13.5x mid third for the Machinery, Equipment & Components sector. The share price lacks positive momentum and is into its 3rd year of correction. WATR is a share to monitor for the time being...

Strategic Outlook

We will continue to execute our long-run growth plan to create a One-Stop Shop because we operate in a market where customer demand for solutions to water and wastewater problems will remain strong given the rising price of water and the reality of aging water and wastewater infrastructure. Because of underlying market demand, we are still hiring to put more service vehicles on the road and training more technicians to deploy our minimally-invasive technologies. Such new hires are an operating expense but should be considered an investment given the length of time it takes to train a leak detection professional and the importance of fully-trained technicians for future revenue generation based our USP of pinpointing water and wastewater leaks with minimal destruction. While we have the resources to make this investment, we will be prudent and monitor the general macroeconomic picture.

Our prior technology investments will help manage our people investments in growing the business. On 11 September, we released an update on our new technology offerings that we are building into our sales plan for 2024: IntelliDitch (irrigation and stormwater run-off); Pulse (Resident and Municipal); LS1 (Municipal); CreatorSuite (ecommerce).

First, each of these offerings will add to our matrix of solutions - residential, commercial, municipal, clean water, wastewater - and enable us to further position ourselves to customers, whether homeowners or insurance companies, as a One Stop Shop. For example, with our Pulse product, rapid sewer diagnostics is a natural upsell during a visit to a home for water leak detection as most homeowners have insurance or warranty policies for both water damage and sewer blockages. This offering will also help to drive our business-to-business channels.

Having a matrix of solutions also helps with navigating changes in market segments and the management of our workforce. As noted above, the slowdown in new construction because of the spike in interest rates may be offset by a focus on aging rental properties, with problems such as sewer blockages. Our technicians are all cross-trained on the various technologies, making it easier to redeploy the technicians we have invested in. It should also be noted that our proprietary LS1 product for rapid, automated municipal surveys is geared for deploying headcount with less training than is required for pinpoint leak detection. As this offering is rolled-out, we are planning on using such surveys as a bridge for technicians to generate sales while training for full leak detection capabilities.

Second, our software infrastructure enabling customer relationship management (Salesforce) and video ecommerce (CreatorSuite) applications positions us to be part of the customer's entire journey across their lifecycle with sales opportunities to provide solutions to various problems related to water and wastewater. Given our sales footprint across the US and in the UK, Australia and Canada, we can also work with partner companies anywhere in the world to recommend their products to homeowners or property management. Related to demand for water and wastewater solutions, the development of the smart home is another sectoral trend that is expected to continue.

Our software infrastructure will also help with workforce management. With our Salesforce application, we will be more efficient with job scheduling for our technicians and achieve higher levels of service responsiveness to residential customers and business-to-business partners. We will also be able to better integrate work crews with trainees for on-the-job training. With our CreatorSuite video technology, we can not only use it for ecommerce but also for distance learning with short form training videos housed in a secure environment for our technicians. Cutting the time for training will enable the Group to accept more sales opportunities instead of managing backlogs of work.

In navigating market conditions, we will continue to execute our growth plan. However, we are mindful that it all starts with fundamentals, especially profits. As we build on the fundamentals by simply adding more trained technicians and service vehicles because of market demand for water and wastewater solutions, we will be integrating prior investments that make our operations more efficient and lower customer acquisition costs.

Interesting but still no sign of ever paying a dividend and valuation towards that of a software company rather than a utility.

However keeping on watchlist still as right area in as ever increasing need for water in the right place and leak reduction in a warming world but looking for a significantly lower entry point as coy appears bid proof/

Have WATR any activities at all in the Uk? One would think there were huge opportunities with our outdated and decaying networks. I have read that 15% of water is lost to leakage in some regions. Is this not an opportunity for professional detection and remediation services?
Perhaps I have missed something

Smithie6:
My point wasn't philanthropic. When I say I want the WATR board to get some evangelistic enthusiasm, I mean I want them to sound like they believe in their own self stated mission, which is:

"...a leading multinational water infrastructure solutions company whose mission is to safeguard the world’s most precious resource."

It's not enough just to have a glib line like this on a website. Overall, I've heard shoe salesmen with more ambition and sense of purpose.

It's not about how much water there is, it's about where it is, the costs of accessing it, processing it, preserving it and disposing of it. Water is not cheap. Also, 'rubbish about saving the planet' such as unnecessary wastefulness, DOES these days resonate with paying consumers and governments, so can't be ignored.

Potable or non-potable are part of the same System, it's a cycle of Input->Transform->Output, which is a reason why potable and non-potable are not separate subjects. Utility companies deal with both, for a reason, it's pretty standard.

Admittedly, Water Intelligence are at the 'cleaner' end of 'the worlds most precious resource', but it seems if they had real ambition to be a "...company that is transforming aging water infrastructure" they'd be shouting a lot harder about it. It's a service that's badly needed by end customers and utility companies. The utilities are also getting government pressure to get their act together (at last).

Anyway, the consensus on here seems to be hold and, frustratingly, I agree. With a bit more ambition and energy from WATR, I'd personally BUY.
