LONDON, November 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Solid State's strategy of acquisition, expansion into complementary industry verticals and development of value-added capability delivered a 10% year-on-year increase in reported pre-tax profits during H117. We leave our estimates unchanged and adjust our indicative valuation from a single point (505p/share) to a range of 445-495p/share.
Our sum-of-the-parts analysis, which looks at both specialist manufacturing and value-added distribution companies, gives an indicative valuation range of 445-495p/share based on target EV/EBITDA and P/E multiples derived using sector averages (previously 505p based on peer group P/E). As the market becomes more confident that Solid State is able to grow profits in the absence of the MoJ contract, the share price should move towards our indicative valuation range.
