The €340m acquisition of AST Farma/Le Vet looks another superlative deal which is set to drive a period of exceptional growth at Dechra. We upgrade our FY19 EPS forecasts by 10% and by a material 18% in FY20 as the full benefits of the deal begin to be realised. The premium rating is well deserved, and we believe this latest deal puts Dechra on a trajectory towards the FTSE 100 index within a few years. We upgrade to Buy, with a new TP of 2550p.

Another strong update from Dechra, leaving the group on track to hit our full year expectations. Growth in North America in particular continues to impress as the group benefits from the increased critical mass from the Putney acquisition, new product registrations and cross-selling opportunities. The more mature European segment remains solid. No change to estimates at this stage, although US tax reform is likely to benefit the bottom line and should lead to useful EPS upgrades at the interims

Dechra’s AGM update confirms all is in line with growth across all business areas. It is still early in the year, but this is reassuring nonetheless. We have been a bit overly cautious with our estimates and are upgrading our EPS forecasts by ~7-8%, bringing us more in line with consensus. The shares now trading on a Cal'17 P/E of 30x, EV/EBITDA of 20x, falling to 27x/17.5x in Cal’18. The FCF Yield is still 4% however so whilst the shares are certainly not cheap, the valuation is not completely

In our second edition of “Trend spotting” we note how in the last three weeks the defensive rotation trend has gathered pace and further evidence has emerged of the “relative fading” in the UK economy. However we now see early signs of the “risk on” trend starting to reassert itself in equity markets and we look at small cap laggards plus European exposure as ways to play this.

Yourgene has experienced strong demand for its Covid-19 tests, which propelled H1’22 revenues to £17.5m, ahead of the >£15.0m indicated at the AGM last month. This is more than double the revenues booked in H1’21 and close to the whole of FY21.

IXICO has announced that one of its clients has put an indefinite halt on a clinical trial for which the company was providing its artificial intelligence medical image analysis. The halt is the result of unexpected preclinical data. IXICO had expected the contract to deliver £0.8m of revenues in FY22E and it represented £3.3m of the £18.8m order book as of the close September 2021. While this news is disappointing, clearly the trial halt has no reflection on the capability of IXICO's technology

H1 EBITDA declined by 45% YoY, albeit this was slightly better than we had anticipated after the pre-close update in August. The beat was cost related (efficiencies/savings). There was a significant gross margin drag though and, while transitory in nature and diminishing in H2, this means further savings need to be realised to hit full year forecasts. This is our view and we retain a good level of confidence in next year’s forecasts. Having de-rated, valuation looks very undemanding now on just

Venture Life has announced its interim results for the six months to June 2021. As previously announced in the August trading statement, revenues were down YoY due to lower HSG sales and sales to the Chinese partner, though revenues are expected to grow subsequently, benefiting from the two recent acquisitions. H1/21 gross margin was impacted by a number of factors including supply chain costs and stockholding costs; however, the company expect margins to improve in H2/21E. Despite the set-backs

Hikma’s H1 20 top-line acceleration was driven by COVID-19-related demand in Injectables and Generics and the economic recovery in Algeria propelled growth in the Branded segment. Combined with a favourable product-mix, the operating margin was up 1.5ppt. In the near term, new launches across segments should provide some respite against the ongoing pricing pressure. Given the company’s thin R&D pipeline and a robust balance sheet, M&A (probably in the biosimilars space) seems on the cards.
