12 years ago BigAir Group (BGL) was a communications ”plumbing business”- laying pipes and cables - catering to the residential market, said CEO Jason Ashton at the Microequities conference in Sydney on 1 July.
Over time BGL has morphed into a full service provider for business communications.
Four years ago BGL embarked on an aggressive merger and acquisition strategy. The plan? Acquire, integrate, then cross-sell to BigAir’s other companies/clients.
They have completed nine acquisitions over the last four years. Over the same period BGL’s Skaffold business performance score has risen from 4 to 2. Today BGL achieves Skaffold second-highest rating for balance sheet quality and business performance, A2.
There must be a lot to like about BGL because not a single Skaffold member has voted against it – 18 ‘Likes, 0 ‘Dislikes’. What’s your view on BGL? It’s trading at a pretty hefty premium to Skaffold’s intrinsic value forecast. Buy sell or hold? Or do nothing until the full year results are released next month?
