Dan Abrahams presented his in-depth investment thesis on Northgate (London: NTG) at European Investing Summit 2013.
Light commercial vehicle rental business operating in the UK, Ireland and Spain. Commoditized, cyclical and capital intensive industry, but mid-cycle fleet of 100K implies a 12% steady state FCF yield on recent market capitalization. Asset-based valuation considerations: enterprise value per van following rescue rights issue (mid 2009): £8.1k; current enterprise value per van: £11.1k. The equity may represent a “repeated opportunity” as the share price tends to be more volatile than business value. Acquisition target in the absence of shareholder returns (speculated target for Enterprise and Avis; open shareholder register).
