Bingo Industries Limited (ASX: BIN) has released its half-year results to the market today. The business has reported $82m EBITDA, while consensus expectations are $75.6m. Based on this strong half, the business has reiterated its full-year EBITDA guidance of $159m - $164m – which may be conservative. What is good to see is the strong uplift in EBITDA margin in the last six months from 26% to 33%. However, BIN expects this margin to moderate in the second half due to headwinds in multi-dwelling residential construction. Furthermore, the board has declared a 2.2cps interim dividend – representing a 38% payout ratio.

Dial-a-Dump (DADI) has proven to be a fruitful acquisition for Bingo, along with the full year contribution from West Melbourne recycling facility. It has caused the post-collections division to increase revenue by 55.7%, with the infrastructure assets now contributing approximately 70% of the Group’s assets. This is the segment which brought the Group EBITDA margins higher, as the collections business is trekking relatively slower. If the DADI business were stripped out, Bingo’s core business has remained relatively flat – do to the challenging operating environment. However, the timing of DADI was extremely crucial for the business as it allowed BIN to offset industry weakness with synergies until the residential construction market starts to improve. Bingo is aware of the weakness in the current residential market and plans a slow shift towards the Construction and Infrastructure (C&I) segment through FY21.
Bingo appears to continue to utilize strong synergies emerging from the recent corporate deals the business has conducted. Furthermore, the company has outlined their optimism regarding their shift towards C&I.
Bingo’s share price is trading at $3.04 per share, representing a 5 per cent fall from yesterday’s close.
