We publish our more detailed forecasts for Victoria following the FY trading update and completion of the carve-out and acquisition of the Rugs and UK Carpets division of Balta Group NV. FY2022E has been flagged with revenues in excess of £970m, underlying EBITDA in excess of £155m and underlying EBIT in excess of £100m. For FY2023E, management expect EBITDA in excess of £200m.

Zytronic’s interims confirm a continuing improvement in demand, driven by the Gaming and Vending sectors. This has driven a 24% increase in H1 revenue and a profitable outturn (PBT of £0.4m), on track for our full year forecast (SCMe: £1.0m) despite ongoing and well publicised supply chain challenges. Longer term recovery potential remains substantial and the Group is in excellent financial shape (net cash £7.5m post recent share buy-back programme).

Good H1 figures and the turnaround plan on track make the risk/reward tilt upwards given the recent underperformance against BAT. However, we continue to believe that IMB’s combustible focus strategy is not the right one and we see much more positive catalysts when looking at BAT.

The Character Group (Character) reported a 22% year-on-year (yoy) increase in sales and an improvement in profits in the first half to February 2022, despite the ongoing impact of Covid in China (where most of the group’s manufacturing is conducted) and supply chain issues. Investment in finished goods has significantly increased to ensure product availability in H2 but the Group still generated operating cash, ending the period with net cash of £21.5m after a £13.6m share buyback.

Today’s AGM update highlights a satisfactory start to the year. Against a worsening consumer backdrop and further supply chain disruption sales are up 2% and gross margin has nudged up. This reflects favourably on management and the strategy reset. With 80% of profits generated in H2 we leave our forecasts unchanged for now but clearly much will depend on the state of consumer demand in the months ahead. We expect to get better clarity with the H1 update in July but equally, geographic diversity

Accrol has delivered a robust trading update despite clear inflationary pressures on the business during the period. As a result, we are increasing our FY23 and FY24 revenue forecasts to reflect higher levels of activity and product inflation. Our headline earnings numbers remain unchanged following this update, albeit with growing confidence in FY23. We believe the shares look undervalued in what remains a strategically important player in the industry.

Residential-for-rent developer and manager Watkin Jones has confirmed it
is on track to meet FY2022E expectations of rising profits in today’s interim
results, which showed an 8% rise in revenue and a temporary decline in
adjusted PBT, reflecting previously signalled timing and mix of sales. We are
maintaining our estimates for FY2022E-23E, which show 21% compound
growth in PBT. Longer term, we expect further growth fuelled by increasing
demand for rental property from tenants and internat

A reassuring trading update confirms that SuperGroup continues to deliver attractive top-line growth. Admittedly, the superior wholesale performance means (as previously flagged by the company) that there is likely to be some gross margin erosion, but the focus on operational leverage should still ensure a modest improvement in operating margins going forward. Management’s commercial and pragmatic approach to expansion should mean continued success as the brand rolls out beyond its core markets
