Same zico, as a trade - bought as soon as underlying Bid firmed from 57.1 to 57.5. Not quite sure how far this trade might run though in this market.

zico01 - I fully agree 100% and you get paid a nice dividend while waiting for the next takeover and expansion of a growing concern that does not rely on only freight forwarding as it is a diversified and integrated logistic operator with a lot of re-opening potential in the next 1-3 years

Tipped again by Simon Thompson in his Small Companies column (Investors Chronicle) tonight: On course for bumper profit growth. Braintree-based international freight management services group is delivering strong organic growth from freight forwarding and its palet businesses, and looks set to exceed full-year profit estimates. First half adjusted pre-tax profit up 74 per cent to £3.6m on 27 per cent higher revenue of £126.6m. Freight forwarding key driver of growth. Annual pre-tax profits expected to exceed £8.5m, up from £7.2m in 2020. In late June, Braintree-based international freight management services group Xpediator (XPD: 67p) raised full-year pre-tax profit guidance by more than 10 per cent to £8.5m. The earnings risk is still skewed to the upside as the directors only need to repeat last year’s second half performance to hit forecasts. In the first half, Xpediator’s freight forwarding operating profit (pre-central overheads) surged 54 per cent to £4.1m on 28 per cent higher revenue of £101m buoyed by more mature businesses in Lithuania and Bulgaria, higher sea rates (which are passed on in full to customers), and extra UK customer clearance work for clients post Brexit. The group also benefited from £0.4m higher operating profit contribution from its Affinity brand which provides bundled fuel and toll cards and transport services (ferry bookings, insurances and VAT refunds) to 2,000 Eastern European hauliers and 14,500 lorries. There was good news from Xpediator’s Pall-Ex (Romania) franchise, a fast-growing palletised freight distribution network offering 24-hour delivery, which is moving 78,000 pallets of freight each month, up from 67,000 in the first half of 2020. Warehousing activity in Romania is robust, too, operating profits from that business rose by 60 per cent and could hit £0.6m for the full-year. Admittedly, start-up costs for Xpediator’s new 200,000 sq ft facility at Southampton proved a drag and meant that operating profit from logistics and warehousing activities declined by a third overall to £0.4m, but the pipeline is strong and the seasonality of the business supports a second half rebound. Importantly, the first half working capital build – net cash of £6.7m reversed to net debt of £1.6m – is unwinding. The negative movement reflected higher advance supplier payments to secure drivers and lorries, increased freight rates, delays in client payments linked to acceptance of Brexit related charges, and a change in operational system within UK freight forwarding finance. Cenkos Securities pencils in year-end net cash of £3m. I initiated coverage at 45p (Alpha Report: Profit from a Brexit winner’, 19 February 2021), and the share price almost achieved my 85p target after the directors raised guidance 11 days after my last update (‘Primed for a major earnings beat’, 14 June 2021). The pull-back since July is overdone. Priced on 10 times operating profit estimates to enterprise valuation, representing a 37 per cent discount to sector peers, the shares rate a buy.

This will unwind. Cenkos forecasting 3m net cash by year's end.

Net debt (excluding right-of-use assets debt) at 30 June 2021 was GBP1.6m (31 December 2020: net cash GBP6.8m). The negative movement is primarily a reflection of considerable advance supplier payments required in line with market supplier availability, increased freight rates, delays in client payments linked to acceptance of Brexit related charges and some delays in collecting UK receivables following a change in operational system, personnel and structures within the UK freight forwarding finance and shared service teams. This item is receiving significant focus, has already improved and is expected to be fully unwound by the year end. Thats a bit unnerving.

undervaluedassets - Thanks for the insights, the same idea as the earlier Taoist saying - "The journey is the reward." I guess the 'mob' just ride and scalp on the results day and then move on to the next target. meanwhile, see the price closed down just under 5% so the recovery has started already..

No Catalyst. It's been my experience that good results often get sold. The "it is better to travel than to arrive" mob often sell good results. Sometimes you have to wait a few days for for the proper reaction to materialize

Below is Simon Thompson's last update on the 29th June 2021. Xpediator’s drives earnings upgrades. Profit guidance upgraded by 10 per cent. Analysts’ dividend and earnings forecasts raised. Braintree-based international freight management services group Xpediator (XPD:78p) has announced the earnings beat I anticipated a few weeks ago (‘Primed for a major earnings beat’, 14 June 2021). Demand for the group's services across all three divisions – freight forwarding, logistics and warehousing, and transport services – continues to be strong with those parts of Xpediator’s Transport and Logistics & Warehousing businesses that were impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic now all trading positively. The directors are now guiding shareholders to expect annual pre-tax profit “in excess of £8.5m”, up from £7.7m previously forecast in the market and £7.2m reported in 2020. House broker Cenkos Securities has taken note and upgraded its operating profit estimate from £8.9m to £9.7m, implying 20 per cent annual profit growth, on 12 per cent higher revenue of £247m (5 per cent upgrade). Expect closing net cash of £8.1m, up from £6.7m in 2020. On this basis, Xpediator has an enterprise valuation of £101m, or 10.4 times operating profit. The shares also offer a prospective dividend yield of 2.2 per cent based on the annual pay-out being raised by 13 per cent from 1.5p to 1.7p a share, in line with the double-digit dividend growth in 2020. I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see earnings guidance being upgraded again given that Xpediator’s key markets – Baltic states and nine central and Eastern European (CEE) countries account for 63 per cent of group revenue – offer superior growth prospects compared with the rest of Europe, thus underpinning demand for its services. Also, the UK economy is recovering strongly from the Covid-19 pandemic, so much so that investment bank Goldman Sachs predicts 8.1 per cent economic growth in 2021. That’s clearly good news for logistic companies. The holding has produced a total return of 70 per cent since I initiated coverage, at 45p, four months ago (Alpha Report: Profit from a Brexit winner’, 19 February 2021) and with the earnings risk skewed to the upside, I am upgrading my target price from 85p to 90p. Strong Buy.

Given how this tends to move, back in for a trade at this 63-65 level given the two June trading updates and Interims due next Monday. Still hold an investment in addition. GLA
