Shares Magazine: (23rd Feb 2017)

“MoJ dials back on whiplash rules, NAHL up in relief”

Press reports that the Ministry of Justice is set to dial back on its reforms to personal injury claims are helping to lift the AIM-quoted owner of the National Accident Helpline…The reported change will see an increase to the threshold for road traffic accidents only with a £2,000 threshold operating elsewhere.

 

 

Media Coverage

Motley Fool (Mar 2017) “2 shares with explosive long term growth growth”

“…shares in National Accident Helpline (LSE: NAHL) are also rising today following an upbeat set of results from the company…today’s results should alleviate concerns about the company’s future. Falling revenue but rising profitability shows that NAHL can adapt to the changing regulatory environment, which is good news for shareholders.”

Insider Media (Mar 2017): “Sold year for diversified NAHL Group”

“NAHL Group, the company behind the National Accident Helpline brand, has hailed a “solid” financial performance as it continued to diversify in the face of regulatory changes in the personal injury market. In the year to 31 December 2016, Kettering-headquartered NAHL Group continued to focus on “high quality” personal injury claims and accelerated investment in the division’s cases.”

Broker Coverage

Investec (House Broker – Mar 2017):
“Results as expected and strategy set: NAHL has reported FY16 results that are broadly as expected with the group reaffirming its strategy which was stated last week, following the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) proposals relating to Personal Injury (PI) attached to the Prisons and Courts Bill. Initial trials under a new structure are encouraging, as is the confirmation of dividend policy.”

Arden (Mar 2017):
“NAHL has a track record of being highly innovative around changes in regulation and we believe the changing personal injury landscape presents an opportunity to build market share. The recent strategy statement provides forecast benchmarks to base long term investment decisions…valuations remain very modest with a FY17 PE of just 6.5x and a dividend yield of 10.4%. We believe the shares are meaningfully oversold.”
