Jean-Pascal Rolandez, Fund Manager, The L.T. Funds, presented his investment thesis on Prosegur at European Investing Summit 2016. Here’s a snapshot:
PROSEGUR (Spain: PSG) is a worldwide security company, focused on the Latin American and Iberian markets. In 14 of the 18 markets where it operates it is the market share leader. It has experienced an 8% sales CAGR over the last ten years. Sales should exceed EUR 4 billion in 2017. Prosegur is well-managed: Despite operating in uneven economic environments (Latin America represents 78% of EBIT), it has displayed remarkable resilience and constant development thanks to tight control and financial discipline by the founding Gut family. As both Latin America and Iberia are recovering economically, EBIDTA margin should progress from the current 11% level. Importantly, the group now focuses resources on higher value-added products and services such as alarms and security systems, as the cash-in- transit division matures. At a discount to peers and on less than 9x 2017 expected EBITDA-to- EV basis, Prosegur offers a good growth-at- a-reasonable- price investment case for long-term investors.
