Company Overview

Business Description:
Coffey International Limited (COF) is a specialist professional services consultancy with expertise in geosciences, project management and international development. COF has three main business units being: geosciences, international development and project management. COF operates globally and has offices in Australia & New Zealand, Americas, Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East.

Strategy Analysis:
Pre-GFC (Global Financial Crisis), COF pursued a diversification strategy across businesses and geographies, involving numerous bolt-on acquisitions. This backfired horribly for COF, as it had to shed jobs and initiate a restructuring of the business. The company now seems to be taking a more measured approach, aiming to consolidate the existing business and capitalize on its core strengths. The focus is on winning contracts that involve more than one service line. Coffey International reported NPAT down 20% to $3.7m for the half-year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $359.82m, up 7% from the same period last year. Diluted EPS was 1.5 cents compared to 2.5 cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $13.65m compared to $10.8m last year. No dividend was declared.

Australian Share Market - Close Up

CMC Markets 11/11/2014 | The Australian share market is in a decision zone - and trading from here may set the direction for the rest of the year.

Prices slashed - everything must go!

Nick Swales, Regional Director, Newcastle Office, Rathbones 27/10/2014 | “If you want to have a better performance than the crowd, you must do things differently from the crowd.” Sir John Templeton.

Aussie share market bulls now have company

Ric Spooner (Chief Market Analyst, CMC Markets) 20/10/2014 | Today, Australian investors will not have to go it alone buying stocks as they did for much of last week. Bargain hunters this morning will be supported by the morale boosting encouragement of a 3% turnaround in the German Dax and a 264 point rally in the Dow Jones.

The Importance of Ignoring the Noise of the Market

Carl Richards, director of investor education at the BAM Alliance 17/10/2014 | “As odd as it may sound, the sooner you start treating your investments like you treat life, the happier you’ll be with the outcome.”

You only dance twice

William H. Gross, Janus Capital Group 16/10/2014 | “Financial markets are artificially priced. In the bond market, there is nothing normal about a three year German Bund yielding “minus” 10 basis points.”

The Big Picture - Australia 200 Index
