Company Overview

Business Description
CSG Limited (CSV) is a full-service print and business technology solutions provider in Australia and New Zealand. SCG also operates an equipment financing division across both countries to facilitate the sale of its product suite. CSG services customers ranging from small-to-medium enterprises, through to large corporate, government and commercial clients.
Strategy Analysis
Historically CSVĀ“s strategy has been to seek organic growth through aggressively targeting multi-year, annuity contracts and also reaching into new geographies. For acquisitive growth, it made a number of acquisitions in the Print business. But poor management the Canon acquisition resulted in significant underperformance relative to expectations. Following a change of management, current strategy is focused on stabilising the business and improving the performance of Canon. In Print Services the focus is on operational efficiency in Australia and growth through new initiatives in New Zealand. A restructure of the Print Services business is expected to deliver $17m in annual cost savings. The Technology Solutions business has been sold and proceeds will be used to fund debt reduction and a capital return to shareholders. CSG reported NPAT down 41% to $5.21m for the half-year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $91.17m, down 54% from the same period last year. Basic and Diluted EPS was 1.9 cents compared to 3.1 cents last year. The net operating cash outflow was $5.29m compared to $7.76m last year. No interim dividend was declared, compared with 2.5 cents last year.
