Medserv — Momentum to build in H2

While H117 results reflect a slower than expected performance in each of the key divisions, Medserv looks set to deliver sequential improvement in H2. We have lowered FY17 estimates; however, our FY18 estimates remain largely unchanged as momentum from the increased drilling programme from Q417 should continue. The longer-term investment case is underpinned by established contracts for drilling and OCTG services together with workover programmes. In addition, the company is well placed to secure business in new geographic markets to support growth.

H117 results

Medserv reported H117 revenues of €13.6m, down from €17.3m in H116, with reported EBITDA of €1.6m, down from €3.6m. Divisionally, Integrated Logistic Support Services (ILSS) reported revenues of €5.8m, with a lower than expected contribution from Malta. The Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) operations of METS reported H117 revenues of €7.5m, up from €6.5m in H116. With a lower H1 contribution, the company has reduced group FY17 revenue guidance from €35.9m to €30.0m. However, H217 could see a sequential improvement as drilling programme support increases.

Momentum building into 2018

The key to growth in H217 and ongoing momentum into 2018 is already contractually locked in. In ILSS, drilling is set to commence in Q417 for Cyprus, supported by Medserv’s two facilities in Limassol and Larnaca. In OCTG, while activity in Iraq was lower than expected in H1, activity levels have already picked up strongly in Q3 as workover demand grows following a resumption of production at the main fields. While Medserv continues to deliver in existing markets, the group is pursuing opportunities in new geographies to expand its global presence and support longer-term growth.

Valuation: Recovery potential not yet rated

We adjust our FY17 estimates for the lower H117 contribution and FY guidance. However, our FY18 estimates remain largely unchanged as the expected Q417 momentum runs into next year. As new territories are brought on stream the potential for the substantial revenue growth for the 2018-2020 period discussed in the interim statement should become more tangible. In turn, this should provide support for our DCF-based fair value which currently stands at €1.74 per share, from €1.83 before.

Integrated Logistic Support Services (ILSS)

ILSS reported H117 revenues of €5.8m, down from €10.6m in H116. The division missed H117 expectations largely due to the impact on the Malta base of the temporary cessation of drilling activity offshore Libya from March. This should resume before the end of August and hence should drive a sequential uplift in H217. However, the key growth driver for the division is Cyprus, where drilling is set to commence in Q417. As a reminder, Medserv will support ENI’s drilling operations from its new Limassol base (full operation) and its storage facility in Larnaca. Total SA commenced a programme in July (not using Medserv), and this is regarded as a precursor to a start up by ENI in the concessions it won in the December 2016 licencing round.

Looking forward, Medserv is engaged in advanced negotiations to locate support bases in new geographical regions that should support longer-term growth. The company has indicated that contracts here would be focused on development and production rather than exploration. The most advanced of these appears to be Egypt with an MOU signed during the current year. Both ENI and the Egyptian authorities regard the Zohr gas field as a priority for development. The proximity of the field to the Cyprus blocks is a key driver of the renewed drilling activity there. In addition, the expectation that rigs will be prioritised to these programmes has led to the further deferral of the wildcat drilling programme offshore Portugal where the licence runs to early 2019.Therefore, Portugal is expected to deliver relatively flat performance in the short term.

We have revised our estimates for the division, lowering FY17 revenue from €17.7m to €13.6m.

Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG)

OCTG reported H117 revenues of €7.5m up from €6.5m in H116. The division’s results were somewhat below expectations on a lower than forecast contribution from Iraq. However, activity in Iraq has already seen a strong pick-up in activity in the Q3 and business here should drive revenue and EBITDA growth for the division as inspection and machine shop demand grows. Meanwhile, the contribution from Oman is expected to remain stable while the UAE should see a small improvement; hence we have made modest adjustments to our estimates for this division.

Estimates revision, valuation implications

We have revised our estimates for the division, lowering FY17 revenue from €17.5m to €16.7m, which reflects a lower contribution from Iraq and a slightly less favourable $/€ profit translation assumption. The revision to revenues substantially drops through to our adjusted EBITDA assumption due to the high level of fixed cost in the operations. Our forecast is reduced by 39% to €4.3m in FY17. However, as activity increases the operational leverage should allow a rapid recovery in profitability. The increase in drilling programmes and workover projects in H217 will provide operational momentum into FY18. In addition, as the company secures business in new geographic markets this will support growth and build visibility for the medium term.

We continue to employ a capped DCF approach to valuation, which encompasses a six-year explicit forecast projection in our model with a zero growth scenario anticipated in our terminal value calculation. We have used a cost of equity of 11%, which gives us a calculated WACC of 8.2%. On our reduced FY17 estimates, our core assumptions return a DCF value of €1.74 per share, down from €1.83 per share.
