BILL Value

 Is Billing Services Group undervalued based on future cash flows and its price relative to the stock market?

Value is all about what a company is worth versus what price it is available for. If you went into a grocery store and all the bananas were on sale at half price, they could be considered undervalued.
INTRINSIC VALUE BASED ON FUTURE CASH FLOWS
  • It is not possible to calculate the future cash flow value for Billing Services Group. This is due to cash flow or dividend data being unavailable. The share price is £0.0185.
PRICE RELATIVE TO MARKET
We can also value a company based on what the stock market is willing to pay for it. This is similar to the price of fruit (e.g. Mangoes or Avocados) increasing when they are out of season, or how much your home is worth.

The amount the stock market is willing to pay for Billing Services Group's earnings, growth and assets is considered below, and whether this is a fair price.

  • It is difficult to establish if Billing Services Group has efficiently used its assets last year compared to the GB IT industry average (Return on Assets) as it is loss-making.
  • It is difficult to establish if Billing Services Group improved its use of capital last year versus 3 years ago (Return on Capital Employed) as it is currently loss-making.

BILL Health

 How is Billing Services Group's financial health and their level of debt?

A company's financial position is much like your own financial position, it includes everything you own (assets) and owe (liabilities).

The boxes below represent the relative size of what makes up Billing Services Group's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth
  • Billing Services Group is able to meet its short term (1 year) commitments with its holdings of cash and other short term assets.
  • Billing Services Group's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.
Balance sheet
This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Billing Services Group's finances. If any of them are yellow this indicates they may be out of proportion and red means they relate to one of the checks below.
Assets
Liabilities and shares
The 'shares' portion represents any funds contributed by the owners (shareholders) and any profits.
  • Low level of unsold assets.
  • Debt is covered by short term assets, assets are 68.8x debt.
Historical Debt
Nearly all companies have debt. Debt in itself isn’t bad, however if the debt is too high, or the company can’t afford to pay the interest on its debts this may have impacts in the future.

The graphic below shows equity (available funds) and debt, we ideally want to see the red area (debt) decreasing.

If there is any debt we look at the companies capability to repay it, and whether the level has increased over the past 5 years.
