Covestro, like Lanxess, acquired a former DSM business, but with a real premium. The valuation of the resins business looks more like in the lower semiconductor ‘space’ than on the construction ‘floor’. The expected synergies are expected to nearly double the business’s profitability. Financing of the €1.6bn deal will be challenging against the background of the current situation.
We understand the strategic fit of the acquisition, which strengthens CAS’s existing portfolio and provides access to new applications.

Adrian Potts, the CEO of Applied Graphene Materials (AGM), discusses the company’s commercial progress over the course of the past 12 months, which saw the launch of a number of coatings products based on AGM’s graphene dispersions. These products include industrial anti-corrosion products from Blocksil and Alltimes Coatings and retail products from Halfords and Hycote. He also highlights the progress made in the composite and functional materials markets and why initiatives to develop water-based dispersions are key to enlarging the addressable market. Finally, he explains how management has strengthened its routes to market and the actions the company has taken to mitigate the impact of COVID-19.
Applied Graphene Materials is a leading innovator in the manufacture and application of graphene. The company has developed a proprietary ‘bottom-up’ process for the production of high specification graphene and owns the intellectual property and know-how behind this process. The company’s immediate commercial focus is on the coatings market, where products based on AGM’s graphene dispersions can provide demonstrably improved corrosion protection versus incumbent technologies.

Treatt demonstrated its strength and resilience in H120, as so far the COVID-19 pandemic has not had any adverse impact on trading performance. Of course, this is in part due to the categories in which Treatt operates, with some of its products being used in household cleaners, which have witnessed a global spike in demand. Nevertheless, the steady performance is testament to the management and culture of the business, which have been able to withstand the unexpected and exogenous shock. H219 and H120 were affected by a global weakness in citrus raw material prices, which in turn affected revenue growth. Citrus prices have now started to firm and we expect growth in this category to return in H2. We leave our forecasts mostly unchanged but roll forward our DCF and hence our fair value rises to 560p (from 530p previously).

A number of REITs have the ability to thrive in current market conditions and thereafter. Not only do they hold assets that will remain in strong demand, but they have focus and transparency. The leases and underlying rents are structured in a manner to provide long visibility, growth and security. Hardman & Co defined an investment universe of REITs that we considered provided security and “safer harbours”. We introduced this universe with our report published in March 2019: “Secure income” REITs – Safe Harbour Available. Here, we take forward the investment case and story. We point to six REITs, in particular, where we believe the risk/reward is the most attractive.
