Research Report Highlights Undervalued Resource Sector Shares; Enterprise Group’s (TSX: $E) Strong Growth Continues into 2017

Research Report Highlights Undervalued Resource Sector Shares; Enterprise Group’s (TSX: $E) Strong Growth Continues into 2017






March 28, 2017 - St. Albert, AB – (Investorideas.com Newswire) Enterprise Group, Inc. (“Enterprise,” or “the Company”) [TSX: E], a consolidator of services to the energy sector is focused on construction services and specialized equipment rental, today announced that Chris Temple, Editor of US-based subscription newsletter, The National Investor has released a comprehensive report on the Company.

The report succinctly recounts Enterprise’s history in the context of the challenging Western Canadian resource market: seeing oil drop from $100 a barrel in 2014 to under $30 and currently $47.



  
Mr. Temple states, “Together with the stabilization in energy prices helping out the energy industry, the better environment is giving an early boost to federal and provincial spending on infrastructure. Enterprise SVP Des O'Kell recently told me, in fact, that the January-February time frame this year (2017) has seen Enterprise's infrastructure folks booked to near-full capacity.”

The National Investor report should be read in conjunction with Enterprise’s recent Letter to Shareholders.


Salient investment points advanced by Mr. Temple:

  • ·        Trading at a market price of C$0.32, shares are trading at 40% of book value of C$0.82
  • ·        Historically normal share prices tend to be 2-3 times book value
  • ·        Substantial increase in business not yet reflected in share price
  • ·        Management has significantly increased (by 275%) its ownership stake from 6.7% in 2014 to 18.4% currently
  • ·        Buy recommendation based on improving metrics as well as management’s ownership incentive
  • ·        Significant dollars are being allocated by government for needed and/or overdue work of various kinds.




For Q4 ending December 31, 2016, Enterprise saw a 20 percent increase in revenue to C$8.3 million from C$6.9 million for the same period 2016. Gross profit margin rose to 29% from 5% in Q4 2015.

As well, the Company also reported positive EBITDA of C$1.8 million for Q4 2016 versus (C$120,950) 2015. For the same period, EBITDA rose to 22% from negative 2% in Q4 2015.

While it has been an extremely challenging period for resource companies in Western Canada, Enterprise has demonstrated its confidence and ability to analogously 'weather the storm' strongly while many competitors and clients are either financially impaired or gone.


In conclusion, Mr. Temple states: And Enterprise Group--trading at much less than half its book value--is among my selected recommendations of growth-oriented companies because of my view that it represents one of the most incredible bargains you can find.”

For Q4 ending December 31, 201, Enterprise saw a 20 percent increase in revenue to C$8.3 million from C$6.9 million for the same period 2016. Gross profit margin rose to 29% from 5% in Q4 2015.

As well, the Company is pleased to report positive EBITDA of C$1.8 million for Q4 2016 versus (C$120,950) 2015. For the same period, EBITDA rose to 22% from negative 2% in Q4 2015.

"Enterprise management is extremely encouraged by our latest results," stated Leonard D. Jaroszuk, CEO, President and Chairman. "From negative cash flow in Q4 2015, management efforts raised that number to positive C$0.07 per share. As well, we secured amended loan agreements to reduce our interest rate along with more favourable covenants. Equally impressive is that the Company retired debt of C$18.3 million through the funds (C$19.8 million) received from the transaction to divest substantially all the assets of TC Backhoe & Directional Drilling Ltd (TCB)."

The acquisition of TCB in 2007 for $12 million was immediately accretive. During our 9.5 years of ownership, TC generated roughly 13-fold ($154 million) the purchase price in revenues and extended our reputation as the premier and frankly the only 'One Stop Source' for virtually every critical resource construction service.

While it has been an extremely challenging period for resource companies in Western Canada, Enterprise has demonstrated its confidence and ability to analogously 'weather the storm' strongly while many competitors and clients are either financially impaired or gone altogether.

Enterprise has turned in significant gross margin and EBITDA improvements evidenced in the fourth quarter which is the result of determined leadership. Management's continued efforts to streamline and maximize efficiencies are now firmly in place and delivering meaningful margin ratios while still navigating a challenging landscape.

The improvements to profits and the rapid return to significant cashflow should give investors' and shareholders confidence for the future. Certainly, all is still challenging in Western Canada, but today's results show a significant improvement in both business and the overall environment.

Enterprises' clients include some of Canada's largest energy producers, utility service providers and the federal and provincial governments of Canada. The Company employs management highly experienced in large infrastructure projects.

Given the noted limited visibility for 2017 activity and pricing levels, Enterprise will maintain a conservative approach towards Capital Spending while looking at fleet management and opportunistic asset dispositions. This approach will allow management to both maintain critical financial flexibility, allow for strategic, accretive acquisitions and continue to build compelling shareholder value.

This non-IFRS measure used by the Company may not be comparable to a similar measure used by other companies. Management believes that in addition to net income, EBITDAS is a useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company's principal business activities prior to consideration of how those activities are financed or how the results are taxed. EBITDAS is calculated as net income excluding depreciation, amortization, interest, taxes and stock based compensation.
