Solid H116, 2016 EBITDA guidance upped
16 Aug 16
Evotec delivered its Q216 and full H116 results last week, with sales largely in line with our expectations, while profits were boosted by lower than expected operating costs and higher other income. The company has raised its guidance and now expects adjusted EBITDA to more than double in 2016. Bayer’s move to Phase I with endometriosis is the most prominent news recently. Healthy cash flows and a maturing preclinical pipeline should support the share price in 2016 and 2017, in our view. We have increased our valuation to €620m from €575m.
Healthy cash flows in the future
29 Jun 16
Evotec operates a hybrid business model and offers a unique risk-reward profile for investors, with steady growth from its EVT Execute business and potential drug development upside from its EVT Innovate arm. We base our investment thesis for Evotec on supportive company-specific and macro trends and forecast healthy cash flows in the future. Our valuation of Evotec is virtually unchanged at €575m.
Strong performance drives upgrades
20 Nov 15
We believe Evotec’s business is well positioned to deliver continued growth, benefiting from the ongoing trend towards outsourcing early-stage drug discovery. A key driver for future growth is via strategic alliances and Evotec has realised a number of both new and expanded agreements this year. We have raised our financial forecasts and, consequently, our valuation to €577m owing to the strong performance year to date, coupled with these collaborations. In 2016 we expect Evotec to provide an update on the future strategy.
Growth drivers intact despite EVT302 setback
02 Jul 15
EVT302 has failed to meet the primary endpoint of a Phase IIb trial in Alzheimer’s disease. Partner Roche will now fully evaluate all secondary endpoints to determine EVT302’s future. We have lowered EVT302’s probability of success to 5% (from 20%), reducing our valuation to €486m. Despite this pipeline disappointment, we continue to believe that Evotec remains well placed to accelerate growth, with the Sanofi deal providing capacity, guaranteed future revenues and enhanced capabilities.

N+1 Singer - Morning Song 30-11-2016
30 Nov 16
Sanderson has delivered full year results in line with expectations and the 19 October trading update after a strong finish to the year compensated for a slower start. A healthy level of pre-contracted recurring revenue (50%), incremental sales to existing customers and new customer wins at higher average order values helped deliver solid revenue growth in both the Digital Retail (+9%) and Enterprise (+12%) divisions. A decent order book and good sales momentum suggest that the company is on track to deliver on unchanged profit expectations for the current year. We continue to view the valuation (FY17 EV/EBITDA 8.6x) as undemanding given an attractive combination of accelerating growth potential, strong cash generation and growing dividends.
N+1 Singer - Morning Song 29-11-2016
29 Nov 16
Vp has reported another impressive set of interims, confirming strong growth in most markets and a positive outlook. Recent acquisitions are bedding in well and the full year outturn is set to exceed previous expectations (5%/6% EPS upgrades in FY17/FY18). The recent Capital Markets Day provided a reminder of Vp’s qualities (specialist focus, high returns, strong cash generation) and its growth potential, which in our view are not reflected in a modest <11x P/E rating. We firmly believe the shares are due a re-rating and see intrinsic value in excess of 800p.

We expect CareTech to report FY results to September on 8th December. A positive trading update in October indicated that performance for the year was in line with market expectations therefore we are focusing on the outlook. We expect a confident statement since the end of 2016 showed positive trends across fee rates, expansion in places and occupancy. We believe CareTech is well positioned for further expansion, and remains at an attractive valuation. We retain our BUY and 380p price target.
Food intolerance driving growth
29 Nov 16
Omega Diagnostics Group has an established core business providing high quality in vitro diagnostic tests within three core areas of competence – Food Intolerance, Allergy & Autoimmune, Infectious Disease – that are sold in over 100 countries. The group offers steady low single-digit growth which is profitable and cash generative. Investment in new products has seen the launch of a new panel of automated allergy tests and progress on Visitect CD4 for monitoring of HIV positive patients. Interim results highlighted the opportunities to accelerate growth of the business, particularly Allersys, which has drawn attention from its partner.
