N+1 Singer - Clipper Logistics - Expecting material contract wins in Cal. ‘17
02 Dec 16
Clipper delivered a solid set of interim results yesterday, with significant revenue and profit growth continuing in all divisions. Our initiation note in September identified the Group’s Click and Collect offering and contract win momentum as two future earnings catalysts. Over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday period, Clipper has proven its Click and Collect capabilities and we see potential for a number of significant Click and Collect contract wins in early to mid Cal. ’17. We also increasingly see potential for growth in the European business where the management team has been strengthened with a renewed focus on e-fulfilment. With a number of opportunities already in discussion, we expect contract win momentum to build in the region. We reaffirm our Buy recommendation and upgrade our target price from 370p to 400p, implying an FY’18 P/E rating of 27x.
N+1 Singer - Clipper Logistics - Interims highlight further significant growth
01 Dec 16
As flagged in the H1 trading update in November, trading for the first half of the year was in line with expectations, with further significant growth in revenue (up 16.5%) and PBT (up 25.5%). The outlook statement is positive, with the new business pipeline at a strong level and the Board expecting positive momentum to continue into the second half. Clipper’s share price has performed well since our initiation note in September and is now near our target price of 370p. We will look to review our valuation after the analyst meeting, but we believe the medium term outlook for Clipper is positive, with further contract win potential supported by continued growth in online retail.

N+1 Singer - Clipper Logistics - In line H1 trading update
09 Nov 16
Clipper has issued a brief, but in line trading update this morning, confirming continued growth in revenue, operating profit and net earnings. The Group says it is confident that continued organic growth, coupled with the benefit of new contract wins and the recently announced Click and Collect JV will continue to deliver a strong performance in H2. This is an encouraging update. We continue to believe that the Buy case is compelling, with potential for outperformance of current forecasts. The Click and Collect service is not yet incorporated into our forecasts, but we believe it has potential to provide a significant profit contribution in the next four years. We leave our target price unchanged at 370p (implying an FY’18 P/E multiple of 25x) and remain at Buy.

N+1 Singer - Augean - Double digit growth in ’16, good start to ‘17
21 Mar 17
Augean reported another year of double digit growth for 2016, with profits in line with our forecasts. Sales grew by 21% excluding landfill tax, while adjusted PBT grew by 18% to £7.1m before amortisation of acquired intangibles. DPS was increased by 54% to 1.0p, 25% ahead of our estimate. The business units made further strategic progress, with revenues from their top 20 customers increasing from 42% to 43% of the total, of which 88% was under contract or a framework agreement, increasing forward visibility. There has been an encouraging start to 2017 and management is confident of delivering another year of profits growth. The shares trade on undemanding single digit multiples, offering good value.
Scott deal puts spotlight back on corporate strategy and valuation
17 Mar 17
The acquisition of Scott Safety by 3M announced yesterday is not a huge surprise but it puts the spotlight back on (1) Avon’s corporate strategy as two strong competitors merge and (2) Avon’s break-up valuation given the rich multiple (12.9x EBITDA) being paid by 3M. Avon and other competitors, particularly MSA Safety, cannot ignore the fact that Scott, which is the leader in SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus) market and 3M, which derives the bulk of sales from industrial hard hats and masks, would together have the most comprehensive portfolio of products in the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) market. The good news for investors is that if we were to apply similar EBITDA multiple, then Avon’s Protection & Defence business alone would account for the entire market cap. In effect, at the current share price, investors are getting the Dairy business for free. Our sum-of-the parts model now values the shares at 1,279p, up 7% compared with 1,200p previously.
