Indicative proposal by federation asset managment (not unexpected see interesting developments straw) for 100% of windlab at $1.00.
If its sucessfull I think that shareholders will miss out on a lot of value to be realised over the next few years... oh well.
Just want to roughly outline why I think WND looks undervalued
Windlab east Africa
- Recent 10m investment for 25% equity (Est value 40 mil)
- So 37.5 mil if cash + equity taken into account
Windlab recurring revenue
FY 20 = 5 – 12 mil
Assume 1x ARR
Lets take the bottom end so 5 mil
Cash… 4.5mil plus ~4mil expected from greenwich + financial close of Lakeland expected next year so lets conservatively say… 5mil net cash (
Normalised NPAT for 2017/18 ~ 2.9 mil
Including FY19 likely to be ~ 0.6mil And after FY 20 significantly better than this due to lumpy inflows frim Greenwich and Lakeland closes
Note: Company stated cash burn rate without any development revenue within the range of discretionary development spending once KEP is operating. (To me this represents pretty significant inflection point allowing significant reinvestment of cashflows from development projects)
Wind lab developments south Africa = assigned 0 value
Total value if sold off 47.5mil (note I feel this is conservative)
Estimated normalised P/E at 50mil ~ 25 (for FY20)
Current market cap 47 mil (24/12/19)
Potential catalysts for unlocking more value - african projects / M & A activities / resolution of KEP dispute / financial close of lakeland / further asset managment wins now past breakeven operating costs (assuming KEP generating)
Can see should be limited downside from here with significant upside if only a few things go right.
Consortium will acquire 100% of the outstanding ordinary shares in Windlab by way of a Scheme of Arrangement.
Windlab shareholders would receive cash consideration of $1.00 per Windlab share.
Dont mind holding if it falls through as still reasonable value in my approximation although I will likely lower my exposure. Gap widening to 15% exaggerates the risk of failure in my opinion.
Feel it will likely suceed as aquirer already has an 18% stake already a ton of cash and a mandate to invest in renewables.
