Why are insiders pouncing on these ASX All Ords shares?
Over the last 12 months, the APM share price has fallen more than 40%, so the company is now much cheaper than it used to be.
It's not as though the company has been reporting losses or profit declines. In its FY23 result, revenue grew 43% to $1.9 billion, with organic revenue growth of $183 million.
Statutory net profit after tax and before amortisation of customer contracts (NPATA) rose 72%, while underlying NPATA increased 7% to $178 million.
In terms of the outlook, the business said FY24 mobilisations of newly awarded contracts will go live and contribute incremental revenue of at least $125 million in FY25.
However, employment services growth is expected to be subdued in FY24 because of low unemployment rates reducing client flows into employment programs.
Its 'health and wellbeing' is expected to continue to grow.
The North American business is expected to grow thanks to contract wins and the company's Equus acquisition.
The ASX All Ords share also said it is assessing other potential acquisitions.
APM share price valuation
According to Commsec, the business is valued at just nine times FY24's estimated earnings and could pay a grossed-up dividend yield of almost 8%.
