Investment summary

For a company that reported double-digit EBITDA and operating cash flow growth for FY16, Augean continues to confound our analysis by trading on a low P/E multiple and well below our fundamental fair value. Given its excellent market position and sustainable competitive advantage through ownership of scarce hazardous landfill assets, we believe the stock should trade well above current levels. Granted, the company had one or two negative items at the full year, most notably the East Kent impairment, but cash conversion at 95% allowing for growth capex and a 50% increase in dividends is an attractive earnings story which is supported by our discounted cash flow valuation of 80p/share.

Executive Interview - Augean

Industry outlook

There is a growing trend towards treatment, recovery and recycling in the waste hierarchy, highlighted in the government's Strategy for Hazardous Waste Management. This increasingly more stringent environmental regulation supports Augean's specialist industry knowledge model and provides a platform for growth, in our view.
