smithie6: in post 592 you wrote "I hold, but you realise that they are not “buy” trades cos they are blue" & in a later post , 595, you say they were buy trades uf, make your mind up ! ----- anyway, we are both backing WATR.
smithie6: sorry, mate but if big trades go thru at the price to buy & the price moves up as a result then yes, they are buys ----- if they were sells the price would fall 5% rather than rise 5%
dozey3: Probably good advice, but DVRG are part of my diverse Inheritance Tax Relief portfolio, and I guess WATR is ineligible. However it’s difficult to be sure until you die which is rather too late.
dozey3: Yes indeed. If WATR are looking for complementary companies to absorb I hope they take a close look at Deepverge (DVRG). V small AIM outfit with water-quality monitoring and purification systems. Disclosure - guess what - I have a few shares.
epo4eva: Share price going back up. All the sells are getting swept up.
effortless cool: Some good questions there, Smithie. faz has picked up on 1 and 2. You will find more information on the Plain Sight relationship in the notes to the full report and accounts. Corporate governance is certainly a weak area for WATR and, for many, this is, quite validly, sufficient reason not to consider investing. Regarding the repair work (point 3), when this comes through the national insurance arrangement, this is a centralised function that WATR then allocates to the relevant franchisee and WATR then get a share of the revenue. On point 4, WATR use licensed technology, I don't think that they actually own any of it. It does take skill to use this stuff, however, and they train their franchisees. Regarding adding franchisees (point 5), this does happen from time to time, with the cost reflecting the opportunity in whatever territory the franchise covers. It is not a material income generator, however. On 6, they didn't use to do any of that in the USA but have a UK subsidiary that specialises in municipal work. They are now marketing these solutions in the USA. On franchise reacquisition (point 7), these have been happening for several years now and I am not aware of any issues with the seller competing against the old franchise. In most cases, I believe, they either keep working for WATR or just want to cash out. The sale is always the whole business. faz - I'm still a very happy holder here!
smithie6: this share is definitely moving I don't know if anyone has the time to answer these questions 1) The boss Souza has any part of the biggish shareholder Plainsight ? 2) Souza seems to repeatedly get big pay offs by selling new packages of options/shares.....sometimes for getting involved in bank loans that he gets the PLC to take out !! (ie. he makes the decision for the PLC to do something that has a special clause of benefit just for him !) a) are these excessive b) are these normal or justafiable, I have never seen such deals 3) if add repair work to that of leak detection a) will the franchise cost be increased & will ppl pay it ! b) if the franchisee is sent in to do leak detection (& Watr gets 10%), if he then gets a repair contract or other contract it will be direct & not via Watr, so will Watr get 0% from rpoair contracts ? 4) is any equipment propietary just to Watr or are the products fairly standard & acailable to anyone, without having to sign up aa a franchisee 5) how much is the lump sump payment to Watr to become a franchisee, and/or the lump sump to invest in equipment etc ? if it is a big amount, is that a block to growth ? 6) the main operators in this general sector are imo involved in attending to blocked drains, mostly blocked sewers using high pressure pumping of water, & big long pipes on a drum & a sizeable truck with a pressure generator etc these are in every town, & always have work does Watr do any of that ? are they competition for finding water leaks or blockages in sewers ? 7) buying back of franchises a) is the seller blocked from competing ? (if not then the buy back looks like a terrible deal b) does the sale include the premises, vehicles, equipment of the seller, client list ?
hsduk101: Looks like some good news with the 2 additional contracts Water intelligence has won. Share price is rocketing. Any news on what the contracts were and value?
effortless cool: Potentially an important RNS for WATR this morning. Whilst adding yet another national insurer to its roster is obviously great news, it is the extension of an existing insurer relationship to cover repair work that is perhaps more significant. Surprisingly, to my mind, the WATR franchise network was established to do detection work only - no repair. Some franchisees extended their scope to cover repair work, but this was not the core franchise offering. Thus, extending scope from detection to repair gives the opportunity for material growth to come from within the existing franchise framework. After all, who is the most natural choice of tradesman to repair your water leak than the one who has just detected it?
someuwin: WHIreland... WATR is a leading and geographically diversified specialist in precision, minimally-invasive leak detection and remediation in both drinking and waste water. Technology-led, the business uses solutions such as infra-red and acoustics and continues to expand its technology offering – a key differentiator against typical support services companies. The business has been a consistent performer with a history of delivering and exceeding expectations, although the share price, latterly, has marked time. WATR has today reported an FY18A PBTA result which is a 14% beat to expectations; and while the rating could be seen as high in the context of Support Services, the valuation should be seen in the light of similar franchise businesses and technology-led companies, reinforced by strong structural growth characteristics (see below). Strong results disclosed this morning show FY sales growing 44%, demonstrating growing momentum and ahead of the already strong Q1-3. No one-off, this continues an accelerating and compounding trend over the past three years, which we expect to be maintained. Insurance channel sales have nearly doubled and this momentum notably shows every sign of carrying on, opening up a very large US market in which WATR remains the only national player. The differentiated model – advanced technology integrated into multiple and efficient delivery channels – offers meaningful opportunities, while selective franchisee reacquisitions are also adding to the growth momentum and optimising the group’s capital structure. Positive update highlights value This morning’s update highlights the strength of revenue growth in FY2018E, at 44% overall, showing that the momentum continued to accelerate in Q4 after the business posted 40% YoY revenue growth in Qs1-3. Net cash was an upside surprise at $US2.5m (vs. $US0.2m expectation). The shares remain well below their recent highs of 450p and share price targets in the market of 425p previously were based on forecasts prior to this morning’s upgrades. Corporate stores grew 72% YoY This morning’s update shows Q4 corporate store (self-delivered) growth accelerating from already strong H1 levels (+47%). While abetted by reacquisitions, this level of growth also demonstrates the internal momentum in the business. Revenue and profit opportunities Growth is both organic (underlying), as the new insurance channels deliver, and proactive, with WATR driving profits on the back of selective acquisitions of its franchisees, while still increasing royalty income. With a massive market to penetrate, as a national organisation, WATR is able to cross-sell effectively. Fundamentals are strong, with US insurers paying out $US13bn for leaks in ’17, while WATR’s royalty stream is effectively perpetual. We expect 24% earnings growth in the coming year before further reacquisitions. Unique and successful model provides distribution platform WATR operates a successful model bringing together diagnostic technology and service delivery while operating alongside stores where it is its own provider (“corporate221; stores) and a >100 franchise national US network. Valuation / upside We expect today’s good update to be followed by further encouragement when WATR reports FY2018E in detail; we expect strong proactive and reactive growth and hence share price upside. We expect continued reacquisition news, as well as further commercial partnerships, giving upside to forecasts. In addition we note the strong perpetual royalty stream which underpins a SOTP / DCF-based, fair value estimate of approximately 475p, approximately 50% upside on the current price.
