What does Simonds Group (SIO) do and how does it make money?
If you build it, they will come… To do it for you. Founded in 1949 and based in Melbourne, Simonds Group is a provider of homebuilding and registered training services in Australia. The company is one of Australia’s largest volume home builders, operating display homes across the Australian eastern seaboard and South Australia. Simonds Group operates and earns revenue through three business segments. These include Residential Construction, Registered Training, and Development.
Within Residential Construction, the company engages in contracts to design and build residential homes, speculative homes and display homes.
Through the Registered Training segment, it provides registered training courses, payroll and asset services, and intellectual property services through its subsidiaries House of Learning (trading as Builders Academy Australia) and City-Wide Building and Training Services (also known as CWBTS).
Within the Development segment, the company develops and sells land for residential use. At this time, Simonds Group is the only national volume home builder with its own registered training organisation, Builders Academy Australia.
Is Simonds Group a profitable company?
Yes, Simonds Group is currently profitable but the company’s history of net income has been inconsistent. The company’s net income only arrived at A$205k in FY2017 but made a huge 1741% leap to A$3.77m by end of FY2018. Net income shot up again in FY2019 by 173% to A$10.31m only to drop by 46.65% to A$5.5m in FY2020. The company’s net profits then dropped another 14.66% to A$4.7m by end of FY2021.
For the first half of FY2022, Simonds Group reported a net profit of A$0.5m.
Is SIO stock a buy?
Simonds Group has been hurt by skyrocketing material costs and shortages, labour shortages, supply chain complexities, escalating COVID-19 infections and health mandates limiting on-site activity. Geopolitical uncertainties have not helped the stock either.
In February 2022 the company stated:
“COVID-19 is expected to continue to impact the group in the second half of FY22 as infection rates increase and staff and trades/suppliers are required to isolate for a period of time. Whilst further lockdowns are not expected to the extent of FY21 and 1H22, it is still possible there could be some restrictions on access to sites, our display centres and other potential impacts across the supply chain should they occur.”
Investors are likely to remain bearish until the pandemic, inflationary and geopolitical impacts abate.
