We think three big themes will govern the next 18 months. Recovery – the settled shape of many supply chains as we exit COVID is uncertain. Online buying and B2C activity has accelerated but also traditional high-street focused B2B distribution channels will recover. Operators are focused on how to respond to a changing and more fluid demand mix; and managing higher costs. Technology – much of the logistics world is still labour intensive and we think there is plenty of scope for efficiency gain

Powerhouse has moved to de-risk potential sources of delay in the key Protos waste to hydrogen project by providing a £3.8m loan to the project. When the company raised £10m in January we expected this to help expedite the project and today’s loan is a practical example of how this funding is benefiting the project.

Inspiration Healthcare has announced an additional order worth over £1.25m for ventilators to be sold through its Chinese distributor. This new order follows the regulatory approval of the SLE6000 ventilator in China, announced in April 2021, and the £250k order placed at that time. We note that these Chinese orders follow on from the announced Japanese regulatory approval of the ventilator and c£400k order placed at that time. We maintain our Buy recommendation.

c. £241m firm placing at the top of the target range of £190m to £240m at a 17% discount. As expected the raise will be used to reduce the debt and fund investment. This is the final milestone in the group’s strategy. There is no update on trading but as we wrote last month Kier is turning a corner. We show our key placing assumptions. We estimate 6% and 60% FD EPS dilution in FY 21 and FY 22 respectively. We expect net cash at FY 21 and close to average cash neutral in FY 23. TP unchanged at 15

Velocys made strong progress during 2020, beyond what can be seen in relatively flat reported numbers. The delivery of reactors and catalyst to Red Rock Biofuels shows that the company can meet commercial demand, the successful running or the Nagoya demonstration has led to a commercial collaboration and fund raising in the period will allow progress at the two reference sites in the UK and the US.

Directa’s FY20 prelims confirm a year of strong of progress despite the challenges of COVID. Total income of €6.8m and an EBITDA loss of €2.6m are both slightly better than our forecasts and we upgrade FY21 revenue expectations (from €7.5m to €8.2m) to reflect a positive start to FY21; revenue in the first four months increased by 49% year on year. Future prospects look bright with exciting new opportunities emerging in high-potential application areas, notably Lithium-Sulphur batteries.
The group’s 10-month trading update is positive, with the group expecting to exceed FY21 expectations.

In FY22 we also upgrade EPS by

DX has highlighted that trading since the interim results were reported has been stronger than expected. Higher volumes in Freight, driven by new business wins and existing customers, mean sales are now expected to be £10m higher than existing forecasts. DX’s strategy of winning market share supported by superior service levels is delivering, aided by a significant competitor moving away from the irregular dimension and weight market. We have upgraded our FY 2021 EPS by 19% and FY 2022 by 7% (ma

We raise our EPS forecasts by 17% for the current year. Our recommendation remains BUY, and we raise our DCF-based TP to 40p from 38p.
