WATERMAN AWARDED PUBLIC SECTOR CONTRACT EXTENSION
Waterman Group plc ("Waterman" or "the Group"), the engineering and environmental consultancy, is pleased to announce confirmation of a two year extension to its existing partnership term contract with London Borough of Bexley until September 2019.
The appointment is an important part of the long-term regeneration framework of the Borough's growth strategy for its economic, environmental and social regeneration. It will involve the provision of traffic and transportation engineering services, civil engineering, highways and infrastructure, bridgeworks, drainage, principal designers and technical staff secondment.
Over the last twelve months, our team has successfully delivered the replacement of Bexley High Street Bridge, the second stage of Bexleyheath Town Centre Revitalisation on public realm design adjacent to the new Crossrail station at Abbey Wood.
The framework is anticipated to generate annual fees of about £1.7m to Waterman.
Nick Taylor, CEO of Waterman Group states, "We are extremely proud of our continued collaboration with London Borough of Bexley as it enters its 21st year. This is one of many prestigious frameworks in the Public sector which we look forward to developing further."|
|waiting for the bottom to top-up.|
|I have also added today|
|Agreed and I am very pleased to have added to my holding today.|
|Strange then that they are still aiming to increase their operating margin by around 50% by 2019 & the market is expecting eps for next year to rise very significantly.
Look v cheap to me.|
|Hi Norbert – agreed, WTM could see a material dip in earnings over the next one to 2 years given its high operating leverage . That said, if the shares follow suit, then your projections of a trade buyer appearing would probably come true, thus putting a floor under price|
|Brummy - the commercial market has been curving down for a while now hence Waterman scaling up their retail work (shopping centres etc) which is also a strong segment for them. I anticipate further weakness in the valuation here as investors get bored now it's ex growth. This will no doubt provide opportunities for those with a longer time frame. It would be nice to see the board adding at these lower prices. Investors may need reminding that the board have a significant incentive to get the valuation above 100p|
|The FT reported last week they were seeing weakness in the UK commercial property market, which if true would obviously impact Waterman|
Apologies for my confusion. I'm getting the record date and the ex dividend date mixed up. Thanks for the correction.|
|X divi is always on a Thursday.|
|Ex dividend today. So it is possible that those waiting for the dividend sold out only to see the share price drop much more than the actual dividend amount.
Great value at this level.|
|Bit of a harsh reaction to ok results and a dividend hike.|
its the oxman
|Yes ,,,,a good company good management and increasing divi buyers will be back once sentiment alters IMV :-)|
|I sold my Waterman shares a few months ago because of my belief that they would struggle a bit with the consequences of brexit, as a result of being a bit too London building centric. Coming back to have a look at their results this morning, I think the results are good but there is a notable hint at exactly that scenario, which may have hit the shares a little.
Good dividend increase though, and a good company, so who knows what happens next?
|Profits increasing - not to mention the share price :)|
|roce improving as well as the dividend-what more could you want|
|It seems to be lacking market sentiment that's all imran IMO.
Good Company, good Management, could take some time for it to be back in favour though thats the problem, cushioned by the decent dividend. Still one for the patient!|
|Any thoughts on interims this am?
Looked in-line, but market not impressed.|
