AFC has signed an agreement with another leading UK construction/infrastructure player, this time in Kier Group. We believe this further endorses our long term thesis that AFC will play an active role in encouraging the transition away from diesel-fuelled temporary power solutions. We believe its technology could help the sector make clear strides towards a net zero future, which has to commence now if they are to reach this target by 2045. The share price has been weak of late (in line with man

Interim results from AFC contain few surprises and the group remains on track for the full year. The two main deltas versus our (unpublished) forecast were that the £2m stage payment from ABB were treated as deferred income rather than as revenue and that income from R&D tax credits was below our estimate. The first issue is an accounting issue which has no bearing on cash flow, while the second is likely a timing issue. On its own, the tax issue explains why period end cash, at £48.6m, was £1m

SIMEC Atlantis’ full year statement and in particular its going concern statement show that financial risks remain following the decision not to proceed with the Uskmouth conversion. Yet the company has created a path through these risks with the creation of the 240MW Uskmouth battery project and further opportunities at the MeyGen tidal stream project. With MeyGen seeing the immediate benefit of an additional turbine in the water we see the current year as being a better one for the company.

The shares now trade on 24.3x FY2022E earnings, versus a peer group trading on a blended 24.9x. Judges' shares more than regained their composure in early 2022, before events in Ukraine and continued Covid concerns (notably China) weighed on sentiment. As a result, some treading of water is likely in our view. But given the strength of the business (we believe earnings risk is towards the upside) and balance sheet, the quality of earnings and the company's continued ability to execute deals on s
