Tar med en liten kommentar fra Swedbank i forbindelse med det nylige oppkjøpet i Danmark. Meldingen fra Swedbank kom som dere ser i dag.
21.03.16 11:25 - LINK: Consolidator premium awarded
The accretive Responsfabrikken acquisition adds NOK 7/share to our target
The likely acquisition of Responsfabrikken is highly accretive on a 2015 EV/EBITDA multiple of 5.3x compared to LINK, trading at 11.9x. Given a deal close in late May 2016, we see the transaction adding NOK 7/share on the multiple expansion of Responsfabrikken's NOK 11.7m EBITDA alone. On top of this, LINK should benefit from strengthening its foothold in the Danish marketplace.
LINK has increased its net value NOK 22/share in 24 months through accretive acquisitions
During the last two years, LINK has lifted its EBITDA by NOK 45m at an average EV/EBITDA multiple of 6.2x - adding a net value to its market cap of NOK 218m or NOK 22/share. The accretive Nordic acquisitions of Cool Group, PS WinCom, InTouch, Fivestarday and now Responsfabrikken have all been funded by an attractive combination of seller's credit (5% interests), cash and LINK shares and we expect LINK to continue to deliver on its consolidation strategy in the years to come.
Target up to NOK 86/share reflecting Responsfabrikken and higher growth multiple
We raise our 12m target to NOK 86/share (NOK 68) to reflect both the added NOK 7/share of Responsfabrikken and a higher multiple from accretive inorganic growth. As accretive acquisitions going forward is not reflected in our estimates - we raise our 2016 EV/EBITDA target multiple to 13.4x (10.8x). This is equivalent of a NOK 11/share consolidator premium - which is what LINK has been able to generate in value added acquisitions per annum for the last two years.
