Getting punished today to the tune - currently - of 42.35% following revised FY18 NPATA guidance


Eclipx Group Limited (ASX: ECX) advises that, following completion of a review of its most recent trading

performance, it now expects to report FY18 NPATA in the range of $77m to $80m (+13% to +17% on

FY17), compared with the previous expectation of +27% to +30% growth.


GraysOnline auction activity is being affected both by a ten-year low in bank-initiated insolvencies in

Australia and the current buoyant construction sector where large plant and equipment is being deployed

for longer periods in infrastructure projects, resulting in reduced auctioned equipment disposals.

environment from new competitor offerings by some auto insurers.


Eclipx expects to release its full year results in early November 2018

I think it's worth having a bit of a tyre kick at this one around these levels.


Assuming another downgrade and flat NPAT growth YoY still puts it on a PE of 11x - day before downgrade it was ~12x the mid point of guidance (taking into account it was trading around 52 week lows). A touch under 9x currently if it meets the revised guidance.


Slowdown in GraysOnline makes it look an expensive acquisition. $1.7b in debt looks bad at a glance for a MCAP of $600m, but $1.3b of it is secured against $1.63b in cars and equipment. How quickly they can liquidate the assets to repay the notes is certainly something to take into consideration.


Not sure it will see $3+ again in the short to medium term, but $2.40-$2.50 looks achievable to me?

Renaissance Smaller Companies became a substantial holder with 7.31% - date of acquisitions 7/4/2018 - 7/8/2018 so some were purchased at higher prices before the plunge.

Likewise Pendal Group Limited - theywere buyers on the day of the plunge - 7/8/2018


Our Philosophy

Renaissance Smaller Companies employs an active approach to investment management, adopting a ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’â€Â¹Ãƒƒâ€Â¦ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“bottom upÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¡Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…¾Ãƒâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚¢, value based philosophy. Renaissance's investment philosophy seeks to exploit market inefficiencies that result in security prices deviating from an assessed valuation. This approach reflects the belief that, in the absence of structural change, security prices will ultimately tend toward their valuation through the course of an investment cycle
