The return of the goodwill IPO: How to value a brand?
21 Jun 16
I wake up in my DFS (DFS) bed with a Gin and Fevertree (FEVR) hangover, place a trade on my phone through CMC Markets (CMCX), have a quick go on my Hornby (HRN) train set, eat half a box of Hotel Chocolat (HOTC), all before heading out in my brand spanking new Joules (JOUL) wellies to my local Metro Bank (MTRO) branch. All of these well-known consumer brands share a common theme in that they are all listed or quoted on the London Stock Exchange. It’s been a year so far reminiscent of 2014 when we saw a flurry of large brands rush for the IPO door such as Pets at Home (PETS), Saga (SAGA), AA (AA) and Poundland (PLND). Most looking for a private equity exit. The IPO adventure of these companies tends to be fairly boiler plate: the valuation is a battleground between the exiting private equity house and incoming institutional investors, the book is many times covered and the scale backs are eye watering. But what makes these companies more alluring to investors than a company nobody has ever heard of which in fact may be profitable, dividend paying and ultimately, on a lower valuation?
Positive returns from all asset classes in Q316
28 Nov 16
Tetragon Financial Group (TFG) reported fair value earnings of US$49.7m for the third quarter of 2016, with positive contributions made by all asset classes. NAV total return was 1.3% for the quarter and 7.8% for the nine months to 30 September 2016. Having completed a US$100m tender offer in June 2016, TFG commenced a US$50m tender offer on 9 November 2016, which should be meaningfully accretive to NAV per share given the current wide share price discount to NAV. Consistent with previous years, the third interim dividend was held in line with the second interim, confirming TFG’s 5.9% yield.
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.

Topic of the quarter: Following on from our last quarterly we have delved further into the potential and challenges that the Internet of Things present the sector. Having spoken to a wide variety of companies from the sector (large and small, UK and overseas) it is apparent that there is going to be a very significant increase in the amount of data either generated by or available to Support Service companies. The key to generating value from this change will be breaking down the silos in which data is currently held, attracting and investing in the right skills and talent, seeing beyond the short-term investment that is likely to be needed and engaging with clients on a higher, more strategic level. If the sector doesn’t react, then the door is wide open for the Technology sector.

Sound Energy (SOU): Completion of fundraise (BUY) Following yesterday’s announcement relating to the fundraise on the Primarybid platform the company has successfully completed the transaction. Analyst: Dougie Youngson Ithaca Energy (IAE): Inspection delay (BUY) During the final stages of commissioning faults were identified in some junction boxes. Consequently start up of production has been delayed until early January whilst the situation is remedied. Analyst: Dougie Youngson Zambeef* (ZAM): Good performance in a challenging year (CORP) Zambeef has reported FY2016 results which we feel are commendable given an extremely difficult twelve months which saw the collapse of the Kwacha, high local inflation, drought, power cuts and the requirement for a large-scale refinancing of the business. In this context double-digit underlying progress in revenue and gross profit is a significant achievement. FY2017 should be a far more 'normal' year and we are not materially changing our FY2017 forecasts or target price. Analyst: Raymond Greaves Gresham House Strategic* (GHS): Attractively priced (CORP) On a 26% discount to NAV of 1,025p yet targeting a 15% annualised return and having made a clear statement on dividend distribution (distributing 50% of net realised profit as a dividend, with 15p indicated from net realised profit YTD for a 2% yield), GHS shares present an attractive investment opportunity. The management objective remains the construction of a concentrated portfolio of mainly quoted smaller companies acquired on compelling multiples, with a three- to five-year holding period and significant engagement envisaged to maximise returns.
