The growth rate of a company is an important measure to assess the attractiveness of its shares. According to the results of Infront Analytics in 2019, National Gas & Industrialization Co has an N/A score. This means that the company has a lower growth than its similar group.
The EV/EBITDA ratio (the cost to pre-tax profit) is a well-known measure of a company’s valuation. The EV/EBITDA ratio is very often used to evaluate a business, as it shows whether a company can be undervalued or overvalued compared to industry peers.
It is a more accurate indicator than the P/E ratio (share price to profit), since it takes into account both the indicator of the company’s net operating profit and the indicator of the company’s total value, which includes financial debt, cash position, and minority interests, which are key indicators in assessing the market value of the company.
National Gas & Industrialization Co’s EV/EBITDA NTM ratio is significantly lower than the group average: around 8:00, considerably lower than the industry average: 9.25 and substantially more economical than its historical 5-year average: 10.8.
In 2018, National Gas recorded a profit decline of 8%, which amounted to 117,14 million riyals compared to SAR 127,34 million a year earlier.
The firm attributes the decline in profits in 2018 to the drop in sales of gas and cylinders combined with higher administrative, general, and marketing expenses.
Over the 12 months of last year, revenue fell by 4.5% to 1,9 billion rials, compared with 1,199 billion rials earlier. Operating profit decreased by 34 % to 99,08 million riyals. Earnings per share in 2018 amounted to 1.56 riyals compared to 1.7 last year.
However, in the first quarter of 2019, National Gas & Industrialization Co increased its profit by 120.9%. Net profit reached 85,79 million riyals against 38,83 million riyals for this period last year.
Meanwhile, the total revenue of the gas company fell by 47.48% to 493,88 million riyals in the first three months of 2019. Earnings per share in the first quarter of 2019 reached SAR 1.14.
In the fall of 2019, National Gas & Industrialization Co will distribute quarterly dividends of 16,87 million riyals for the whole year.
We hope that the company will find ever new ways to improve the quality of its activities and achieve more, and shareholders of National Gas & Industrialization Co will receive attractive dividends in the future.
