enX Group Limited (formerly Austro Group) is an industrial energy group which has been listed in the Industrial Engineering sector of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) since 2007.
Woodworking machinery business Austro Proprietary was initially the group’s sole asset. Today, enX has diversified extensively, providing industrial equipment related components and support services to a wide range of sectors in South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. Clients include mining, industrial and construction groups, retailers, banks, manufacturers and technology and telecommunications companies.
The group also has extensive interests in the energy sector and recently acquired an oil lubricant business which represents Mobil and ENI. The name enX (Energy Exchange) represents the board’s intention to refocus the group as an energy and industrial supplies company. The company has a JSE market cap of R 1.1 billion, with the live online stocks chart showing a stable enX share price.
enX Shares Growth Driver
In 2012, the group began implementing an operational shift led by an all new executive and management team. The shift has proved to be successful, with the group successfully achieving organic growth, raising capital, concluding moves to buy other businesses and introducing new industrial energy platforms.
The oil business has been smoothly and successfully integrated and became a material contributor, whilst the power segment grew through organic growth and the acquisition of generator rental business Genmatics. In line with the group’s objective of partnering with leading global grands, an important contractual distribution relationship with John Deere was secured, whilst relationships with Mitsibushi were strengthened. The wood division has also been turned around from an under-performing business into one which has registered profitability in a tough industry segment. enX also secured its empowerment credentials to the benefit of profits and enX share price.
As a result, the group’s latest financial data makes for good reading. Revenue was up by 59% to R517.7 million for the six months ended February 2016, with adjusted headline earnings increasing by 51% to R22.2 million.
Despite the stagnant South African economy, enX looks set to continue its strong upward growth curve, with a number of important acquisitions already secured. These are mainly within the Fuels division, which will be the company’s main area of
expansion in coming years. In July 2016, enX announced that it would buy the industrial business of large capital equipment, fleet management and contract mining group Eqstra for R7.8 billion.
enX Group Investor Tip
enX share price has been admirably stable through difficult times. The company’s strategic shift has been capably handling by the executive team, and the Eqstra transaction is a particularly bold step. With the move, enX aims to become the JSE’s next industrial giant, and capitalise on what the board believes is a global mining sector which is at the bottom of a negative cycle.
If the board is right, then the deal looks set to benefit enX share price and increase shareholder profitability, and attract new investors to buy enX shares.
