HY24 Highlights

· Revenue of £175.1 million delivered predominantly from our previously sold developments on site, alongside one forward sale completed in March 2024

· Adjusted operating profit improvement from £1.8 million to £4.0 million, reflecting:

- Gross margins in line with guidance

- Benefit of cost saving actions implemented in FY23

· Continued focus on cash generation resulted in period end gross and net cash balances of £67.1 million and £44.0 million, respectively

· Secured two new PBSA development sites, subject to planning

· Planning submitted for a further c.3,000 PBSA beds across four schemes

· Completed building safety rectification works on three buildings in the period, with cash spend in line with expectations. Group provision unchanged

· Continuing the approach adopted at the FY23 year end, the Board is prioritising the maintenance of financial flexibility during this period of market disruption and consequently is not declaring an interim dividend; the Board will keep this approach under review.



Outlook

· c.£400 million of contractually secure forward sold revenue as at 31 March 2024, of which c. £150 million is for delivery in the second half of the year. Total secured pipeline of £1.4 billion

· Current development schemes on track, supported by continuing moderation in build cost inflation

· Targeting further forward sales in FY24: one scheme in legals and other schemes being actively marketed

· Encouraging initial progress with Refresh opportunities: two smaller projects signed to date, with an active pipeline being pursued

· Investment market gradually showing signs of recovery as economic sentiment improves, albeit, a slower than expected reduction in interest rates has potential to impact pace of recovery

· We expect our FY24 Adjusted Operating Profit to be at least £15 million and within the previously guided range*.

Will WJG ever recover after falling over that cliff?

The seasonal pattern of the price chart in the header is telling. There are generally sharp falls in share price mid to later summer (when PBSA projects are completing) followed by a gradual climb into January. Then a steady decline into summer. It's happened the last two years. I wonder how 2024 project completions will fare?

Interesting, pretax. I haven't seen any numbers lately but sense tells me getting vocational training so you can contribute from day 1 is a decent bet for kids these days unless you want to be in the City or a specialist science career. So on balance WJG are going to need to take care where they propose developments.

They also have an outstanding planning approval near where I am and there isn't a tertiary education facility in sight. I think they have pulled in their horns pending better financials.

We will reduce rates before the US, pound will weaken and make the UK attractive to international students. Good for WJG

That’s a very late afternoon announcement. Presumably they decided that it was so price sensitive (or that it had leaked) that they needed to release immediately. Looks a very useful cash inflow.

The naysayers on here seem to have gone awfully quiet of late, one of the main ones saying 17th Oct "I simply don't see any upside in this share unless and until they can sell their products at a profit'.

At that time the share price hit a low of 35p. Today it's about 50% higher. WJG may be down, but certainly not out yet.

"Otherwise share price will stay over 180p , it’s a bargain price & believe not be this price too long".

Just been comparing forecast FY23 in relation to FY17 their full first year of trading following the IPO in March 2016 (IPO’d at a share price of 100p).
In FY17 their net profit was £35.8m (net debt was £41m), forecast net profit for FY23 is £38m (poss £44m net cash at H1 tbc next week). The share price following FY17 results (Jan 12th 2018) and for the year averaged about 205p.
So IMO this is clearly not trading at historic valuations in relation to bottom line profit (the share price is at all time lows) and there could be substantial upside (let’s see what they say on 23rd).
