RE: ISOTeam
My own analysis gives me the feeling that ISOTeam's grow is rapidly slowing down; although their projects come in "many small ones", it appears that the very fierce market competition might have whittled down their competitive advantage. Would any VBs agree with my assessment?

RE: ISOTeam
I would agree if Singapore is in a rapid growth stage now and that's all isoteam can clinch. But we all know the economy now and I wouldn't say isoteam is doing a fantastic job but I am satisfied.

RE: ISOTeam
The fact that they are starting another business -- bike sharing -- may be a signal of their intent to look for something else to drive growth/profits.

Why else would they do so, if their core business has many more good years?

RE: ISOTeam
Tbh I'm not sure there is a need to be alarmed by the bike sharing business. It's only a million dollar investment where iso can easily earn from a couple of painting projects. All along iso has been working closely with govt and focusing on green environment. I see this bike sharing as an extension of it and align with iso mission. Sometimes we can take a step back and see the broader picture of what this project can bring for iso in future. They also invested into solar right which is linked to public housing same as bike sharing geo system in public housing areas. All linked IMO. If one day I see iso going into F&B then I have doubts about their intent.

RE: ISOTeam
The government's intent to continue refurbishing old flats has given me reason to re-look at ISOTeam. But it seems that the numbers has yet to provide a compelling case for investment.

1) Since IPO, ISOTeam has made several acquisitions and investments:

October 2014: Four contractors for $5m
December 2015: TMG Projects for $4m
January 2017: Rong Shun for $6.4m
April 2017: Property at Changi North with 13 years lease remaining, for $12.5m
May 2017: CPS of Sunseap convertible into 2.78% of share capital, for $5m

Total: $32.9m

These were funded by bank loans (which grew from $5.1m in FY13 to $23.4m in MRQ), IPO proceeds ($6.7m), and placement proceeds ($6.6m).


2) The acquisition of contractors related to its A&A and R&R works has certainly boosted its revenue. But at the same time, unbilled receivables grew rapidly as well. Its billed receivables remained stable. Overall, total billed and unbilled receivables as a proportion of revenue is less healthy than before.

              Revenue ($mil)   Total Receivables ($mil)     %
9M18:               63.5                       44.9                  70.6
FY17:                82.9                       43.5                  52.5
FY16:                94.1                       36.1                  38.4
FY15:                81.6                       28.5                  35.0
FY14:                69.8                       26.1                  37.4
FY13:                48.2                       19.5                  40.5
FY12:                35.4                       15.3                  43.3
FY11:                24.5                       9.7                    39.6
FY10:                26.6                       7.0                    26.3

Perhaps ISOTeam is engaged in several big projects, hence has $22.5m of unbilled receivables as of latest results. When it IPO-ed in FY13, it had only $3m of unbilled receivables.


3) While it has been taking longer to collect its receivables, ISOTeam has been a good customer to its subcontractors and suppliers by being rather disciplined in making payments.

                  COGS ($mil)      Total Payables ($mil)      %
9M18:               50.9                       16.9                  33.3
FY17:                61.2                       20.2                  33.0
FY16:                69.9                       30.0                  42.9
FY15:                61.4                       22.8                  37.1
FY14:                56.3                       17.6                  31.3
FY13:                40.0                       11.8                  29.6
FY12:                29.0                       8.2                    28.4
FY11:                20.9                       5.1                    24.4
FY10:                20.5                       5.1                    25.0


4) Due to the longer time it takes to collect receivables and short time it takes to pay suppliers, performing more jobs will require an increasing amount of working capital. Together with its aggressive acquisition and investments, FCF is merely 14% of OCFbWCC, and 20% of net profit. The low FCF also explains why dividends (and payout ratio) has been subdued.

Sum of FY10 to FY17

Operating Cash Flow before Working Capital Change:   $65.3m
Increase in Working Capital                                    : -$27.9m

Operating Cash Flow                                              :  $37.3m
Investing Cash Flow                                               : -$28.3m
Free Cash Flow                                                      :  $9.0m

Dividends                                                              :  $7.1m

Net Profit                                                              :  $44.9m


5) Assuming that ISOTeam no longer makes substantial acquisition and investments, is able to improve on its collection of receivables, and make its acquisitions payoff, FCF generation (and dividends) may improve tremendously. For now, its track record seems mediocre. And that makes the $95m market price of ISOTeam seem unattractive.
