What a Treatt
18 Jan 17
Treatt is steadily transforming itself from a seller of flavour and fragrance-based commodities to a value-added ingredients supplier. The strategy of deep customer knowledge is paying off, leading to stronger relationships, a real competitive advantage and greater profitability, with EBIT margins increasing from 9.6% in 2014 to 10.8% in 2016. Management has delivered four consecutive years of earnings above expectations and the momentum remains strong. Our DCF analysis calculates a fair value of 293p, supported by benchmark analysis that places the stock at a c 30% discount to its peer group.

Suffering CropScience, operating CF’s tide is high
22 Feb 17
Bayer reported +2% (organic: +4%) higher sales at €46,769m and the gross profit margin improved from 54.4% to 56.6% in 2016. EBITDA rose +13% to €10,785m and net profit attributable to shareholders came in at €4,531m, up by +10%. Operating CF (+32% to €9,089m) benefited from the good operating basis and higher D/A (+12%), but the significantly lower NWC outflow (€-149m after €-817m) and the contribution from discontinued operations (Diabetes Care and CS Consumer) were the afterburner. Investing CF reflects the company’s willingness to hoard cash for the Monsanto takeover as it moved from €-2,762m to €-8,729m, primarily due to the outflows for current financial assets (€-5,645m after €-344m). Financing CF (€-350m after €-3,974m) saw a strong inflow from capital contributions and lower net gross debt repayments (€-730m after €-2,929m). Management will propose a +8% higher dividend of €2.70 (€2.50) per share at the AGM on 28 April 2017. Management gave a detailed 2017 guidance and expects sales to increase to over €49bn. EBITDA before one-offs is seen to increase by a mid single-digit percentage and core earnings per share from continuing operations by a mid single-digit percentage as well.
Continued progress since interims
01 Feb 17
Carclo has announced that H217 trading remains strong and the outlook for the full year is in line with its expectations. Growth is being driven by the two larger divisions, Technical Plastics (TP) and LED Technologies, while the Aerospace division is experiencing stable trading conditions. We leave our estimates unchanged, but note potential currency upside should foreign exchange rates remain at current levels for the remainder of FY17.

The prospect of Hilary Clinton creating an oversight panel with the power to impose a set of harsh enforcement rules to control aggressive pricing of pharmaceuticals in the US fell away with the election of Trump, leading to a 16% bounce in the NASDAQ Biotech index and an 8% increase in the US Pharma & Biotech index, some of which has already been given back.
Still solid, but not perfect in an unadjusted, real world
23 Feb 17
Henkel increased sales by +4% (organic: +3%) to €18,714m, the gross profit margin weakened 30bp to 47.9% in 2016. EBITDA moved up +8% to €3,345m and net profit attributable to shareholders came in at €2,053m, +7% higher. Operating CF strongly increased +20% to €2,850m seeing a higher operating basis and a stronger NWC inflow (€281m after €20) due to higher payables as well as other liabilities and provisions. Investing CF (€-4,250m after €-893m) was clearly impacted by acquisition-related costs (€-3,727m after €-322m) for e.g. Sun Products. Financing CF swung from €-1,555m to €1,678m primarily due to the financing measures in the context of the large acquisition, which had been fully debt and cash financed as net gross debt repayment of €-1,025m swung to net gross debt issuance of €2,740m. Management proposes a +10% higher dividend of €1.60 (€1.45) per share at the AGM on 6 April 2017. For 2017, management expects organic sales growth of 2-4% with all divisions in this range, an adjusted EBIT of >17.0% and an adjusted EPS growth of 7-9%.
