Neil Woodford’s just bought more of this dividend stock

As investment strategies go, buying quality companies with temporarily depressed share prices takes some beating. This is, after all, exactly what star fund manager Neil Woodford did with tobacco stocks many years ago -- a move which ensured his enduring popularity among private investors.

IG Design acquires Oz greetings card business

IG Design Group has signed a contract to acquire the trade and certain assets of Biscay Greetings, a leading greetings card and paper products business based in Australia.

It said completion would take place on 8 Jan.

Design Group said the acquisition would be made through its Australian joint venture Artwrap and would be satisfied by a cash consideration of A$9m (£5.5m) using local debt facilities.

Ig Design Group - Australian Cards On The Table

IG Design is extending its position in the Australian greeting card market with the acquisition of Biscay Greetings, through its joint venture, Artwrap. Along with Artwrap’s previously-announced new major contract coming through, IG Design now has a wide product range and a strong market presence, particularly in the value sector. The deal (not yet reflected in our forecast) is set to complete after the key Christmas trading period. The full benefit will be felt in FY19, when we expect it to be earnings’ enhancing. Last month’s trading update showed good sales momentum into FY18, with the forecast growth and cash generation supporting the valuation.

Ig Design Group - Bagging Record Order Books

IG Design continues to deliver impressive growth. Its Q1 trading update shows momentum carrying into the new financial year and the group on track to meet (and possibly exceed) our FY18 target. Initiatives to stimulate organic growth and further benefits of last year’s US acquisition are driving progress, with the stronger balance sheet also giving potential for further acquisitions. The share price has performed well over the last year and the valuation is underpinned by the strong cash generation.
