STAFFLINE GROUP PLC
Framework position secured, contracts next
03 Feb 17
The share price is factoring in significant risk on Staffline's ability to replace its Government contracts and weather any storm that Brexit produces. However, Staffline is the only company to have won a place in all seven regions of the new Work and Health Programme framework, flexible labour (such as that provided by Staffline) is an essential part of the UK economy and the group has a proven ability to continue to grow against changing market conditions. We expect contract wins to be announced throughout 2017 and reiterate our Buy recommendation.

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.

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.

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.
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.

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.
