In its scheduled update, G4M reports growth in Q1 then weakness in Jul/Aug, albeit sales still accelerated in Europe. We believe the heatwave across its markets is a key factor and sales have improved in early Sept. Management can’t be certain planned growth materialises, though, given the uncertainties and spending squeeze, and is guiding Mar’23 EBITDA down £3m (-31%). Pending more info, we reduce Mar’24 EBITDA too (-17%). Markets were discounting bad news though and, post revision, it’s on onl

Hostmore delivered a marginally better than expected H1, but it’s not been a great start to H2 and the cold reality is that the consumer environment has worsened, putting pressure on revenue, with cost inflation – especially energy – also rippling through the P&L. Sensibly, Hostmore is slowing its opening programme to protect cash; it’s highly cash generative with plenty of financial headroom, and this should put it in a good position to exploit market opportunities when the time is right. We ar

Pendragon’s interim results show underlying PBT of £33.5m (H1 2021: £35.1m), in line with the numbers flagged in a trading update on 20 July. This is a strong performance given the removal of £8.3m of government support and £7.0m of incremental marketing spend to grow the used car proposition. FY22 trading is expected to be in line with Management’s expectations, despite macro uncertainty and supply shortages, so Zeus headline forecasts are unchanged. We remain comfortable with our 38.6p per sha

There were no major surprises in Kingfisher’s H1 FY22/23 performance. The group’s lfl sales came in at -4.1% yoy (vs consensus of -4.2%). Almost all banners performed in line with expectations. A good start to Q3 also bodes well for Kingfisher to achieve FY22/23 consensus. However, we expect the overall business performance (home improvement demand) to come under pressure during the forecast years as rising inflation and a fragile economic outlook dents consumer sentiment. We maintain a positive

Momentum for the Group has remained with consumer pent up demand continuing to fuel the wider hospitality sector. The Group's revenue for the period rose by 85.3% whilst Adj EBITDA rose by 237.5%. This strong performance is despite the onset of the cost-of-living crisis during the period and is testament to the Group's value for money proposition. With the inflationary environment becoming more acute and exacerbating the current cost-of-living crisis, consumer discretionary spending will increas

easyJet’s Q3 trading update should be defined as mixed as we see severe negative impacts from the airport chaos, but the encouraging traffic figures, good hedging and further improved liquidity and net debt positions are worth noting. We might downgrade further our estimates to a small extent for the current FY and a further cut for the next FY is not impossible as Heathrow warns of a potential passenger cap for summer 2023.

ZOO has provided a brief but very positive trading update ahead of its AGM. H1 23 is expected to be ahead of guidance with revenue of at least $51m, up at least 89% on H1 22 ($26.9m) and 17% on H2 22 (£43.5m), and a considerable increase in EBITDA given operational gearing. We are therefore upgrading our FY23 and FY24 estimates, having increased confidence that ZOO will exceed its $100m revenue target in FY24E, with scope to achieve it this financial year if momentum continues. Strong revenue gr

Results today are bang in line with expectations on an underlying profit basis (ex discontinued) and ahead at the EPS level courtesy of a lower tax charge. The dividend is ahead of consensus too. Net debt was £20m higher than forecast, mainly reflecting the decision not to complete specific sale & leasebacks - meaning the property asset backing is higher at c£290m (c73p/share). Core strategic initiatives are advancing well in all segments, and recent acquisitions have integrated well, performing
