COMPLETES ALL TURBINE INSTALLATION AT GEMINI PROJECT
24 Aug 16
Impact: Neutral. This announcement is in line with our prior expectations as we have estimated precompletion revenues to continue to escalate throughout the final construction phases. We believe this announcement will further de-risk potentials suitors views of Northland's offshore wind potential in Europe. Recall, Northland initiated a strategic review process on July 12, 2016.
Reports 2Q16 Results
12 Aug 16
Northland missed on some expectations in the quarter, but it continues to get good results with its project management. The Company continues to advance its $6 bn construction portfolio on budget; construction at both Gemini and Nordsee One continues to proceed ahead of schedule. As announced on July 12, Management is pursuing strategic alternatives for the Company’s next phase as well as new projects around the world. We maintain our 12-MTP of $25.00/share and Market Perform ranking.
REPORTS 2Q16 RESULTS
10 Aug 16
Impact: Neutral. Northland missed on some expectations in the quarter, but it continues to get good results with its project management. The Company continues to advance its $6 bn construction portfolio on time and budget; both Gemini and Nordsee One continue to hit their marks. Management has left its previous FY2016 EBITDA guidance range of $500 mm to $530 mm unchanged. As announced on July 12, Management is pursuing strategic alternatives for the Company's next phase.
Seeks Strategic Alternatives
13 Jul 16
Northland Power announced on July 12, 2016 that it was pursuing strategic alternatives. Although there are a number of alternatives open to Northland, we think the most likely outcome is a sale of the Company.Northland has an asset development team that can turn projects into cashproducing assets, which we think will be attractive to potential buyers.With the Company focusing on near-term liquidity rather than long-term dividend sustainability, we have raised our 12-month target price to $25.00/share, which reflects a 2019 cash on cash yield of ~9%, or an 11x multiple of the free cash flow we expect in FY2019.
PURSUING STRATEGIC ALTERNATIVES
12 Jul 16
Northland Power announced on July 12, 2016 that it was pursuing strategic alternatives to "review the options available for the next phase of the company's growth" and has retained financial advisors for this purpose. Northland believes this review is appropriate as it pursues the next phase of growth. Management still intends to advance its current ~$6 bn in construction projects in progress and pursue a 'business as usual' mentality until its future direction is determined.
SETTLES DISPUTE WITH CONTRACTOR H.B. WHITE
07 Jul 16
On July 7, 2016, Northland announced its agreement with H.B. White Canada Corp. (HBWC) to settle all disputes and claims with regards to five ground-mounted solar projects in Ontario. At the same time, HBWC announced that it has filed CCAA in Ontario in concurrence with the settlement with Northland. The settlement agreements are conditional upon the CCAA proceeding receiving approval, after which, Northland would receive $6 mm, as well as other relief. Northland also anticipates that with CCAA approval, all liens and filed claims relating to Northland will be dropped by HBWC. All arbitration proceedings have been halted until the CCAA ruling.

The Slide Rule
12 Jan 17
What is The Slide Rule? The Slide Rule has been designed to dramatically simplify the identification of the best companies in the UK small/mid-cap sector by making a quantitative assessment of the relative potential of each company. At its core, The Slide Rule aims to identify those companies that create genuine shareholder value through strong returns on capital and solid growth, but also present a value opportunity with the potential tailwind of earnings momentum. Companies are assessed within a Quality, Value, Growth and Momentum (QVGM) framework.
N+1 Singer - Small-cap quantitative research - New quality style screen + 11 quality focus stocks
09 Feb 17
We introduce our fourth and final style screen representing “quality”. This screens for stocks with the best combination of high returns on capital/equity, EBIT margins and operating cash-flow conversion rates. These criteria should help us monitor how strong underlying returns translate into share price performance over time and under varying market conditions. The screen selects the “best” 25 stocks from our universe of just over 500 stocks and, as usual, we focus on a shorter list of stocks we cover or otherwise know and believe to be particularly interesting. We provide brief investment summaries on these focus stocks on pages 4 – 9. We will monitor performance and refresh the screen in approximately 3-4 months time.
Emerging from the clouds
16 Feb 17
Rolls-Royce’s underlying performance in FY16 was ahead of both its own and market expectations. Media focus on the non-cash £4.4bn headline FX loss is missing what looks to be the basis for optimism. As the civil model starts to move from investment in engines for the A350 and A330neo into the aftermarket delivery phase over the remainder of the decade, we think cash flow is likely to improve, particularly if supported by an eventual recovery in Marine.
15 Feb 17
At the current market capitalisation of £29m, we believe the shares are significantly undervalued. We estimate that the highly profitable Maritime business is alone worth at least £40m. With net cash of £9m at end-2016, this implies that the market is currently ascribing a combined negative value of £17m to the rest of the group, which together account for c.54% of group revenues. This is very harsh given the management actions to transform TP Group to a profit-driven Tier 2 specialist services and engineering company are bearing fruits across the divisions. TPG Managed Solutions is expected to more than double its profits in 2017, while TPG Engineering and Design & Technology are on course to deliver sustainable profits from 2019. Even if we ascribe zero value to Engineering, Design & Technology and Managed Solutions, the shares are worth 9.5p a share, a 38% upside from the current share price. BUY.
