Distil has also announced the launch of TRØVE, an innovative Botanical Vodka brand, catering to the emerging consumer trend for lower alcohol by volume (ABV) drinks but without flavour compromise. This expands and complements Distil’s brand portfolio, further underpinning future growth prospects.

Distil has reported an impressive H1 performance against a backdrop of volatility and other challenges resulting from the Covid pandemic. The company has delivered a profit before tax of £154K compared with last year’s breakeven position, driven by a sales increase of 128% to £1.9m. The period saw new product launches within the leading RedLeg brand, with more new lines to follow. Distil has increased headcount in both marketing and New Product Development (NPD) to support its future growth. Despite the success achieved in H1, considerable short-term uncertainty remains around the impact of the emerging second wave of Covid and consequent restrictions. The company therefore feels it is prudent not to provide guidance at this stage on the outturn for the full FY21 financial year.

Distil delivered a solid trading performance in FY20, despite uncertainties caused by the impact of external events in the form of Brexit initially and COVID-19 more recently. With its disciplined cost approach, Distil saw a 15% increase in operating profit from a 2% rise in revenue. Range extensions have underpinned the continuing success of its leading RedLeg Spiced Rum brand and Distil has continued to lay the groundwork for the further development and future expansion of its brand portfolio.
Distil has published its Q4 trading update, confirming a strong finish to FY20E and outperforming the wider UK alcohol market. Against a weak Brexit-driven performance in Q4 last year, Distil delivered a volume increase of 80%, with revenues almost doubling with a 97% increase. Demand was strong from off-trade (retail) customers, looking to bolster stocks in response to the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent higher levels of endconsumer demand. Management has confirmed FY20E performance to be in line with current market expectations, as outlined in its February update.

Distil has performed strongly in its core Q3 trading period covering October to December despite a backdrop of economic uncertainty and generally weak consumer demand. Against a very tough comparative of 29% growth in Q3 last year, Distil has reported revenue growth of 7% for Q3 this year. This continues to be driven by RedLeg Spiced Rum, with volume sales increasing by 16% in an intensely competitive market. With the company remaining positive on the outlook for Q4, it expects full year profits to be ahead of last year and broadly in line with market expectations.
Distil delivered a breakeven result at the interim stage despite challenging trading conditions, particularly in the UK unflavoured gin market. The previous stock overhang, driven by the supply chain ahead of the previous end-March Brexit date and which also contributed to the H1 sales performance, has now been cleared. Distil has also secured the Mardi Gras trademark in Europe and the USA, which will drive further NPD (new product development) initiatives. The core spiced rum market continues to see growth and new RedLeg brand extension launches should underpin a more robust sales performance in the second half. Combined with continued cost management discipline, Distil expects FY20E operating profit to remain in line with previous forecasts. We have revised our outer year forecasts however to remain prudent in light of ongoing market headwinds.
Distil has announced the launch of a pre-mixed rum and cola drink, which takes RedLeg Spiced Rum into the high growth ready-to-drink (RTD) category. This is a new brand collaboration with Franklin & Sons, the premium soft drink, tonic and mixer brand, owned by Global Brands Ltd. This new venture brings two commercial advantages to Distil, firstly through incremental revenues and secondly through the introduction of the RedLeg Spiced Rum brand to new consumers.
Distil delivered results in line with our forecast expectation at EBITDA and PBT level. FY19 saw a 19% turnover increase, supported by gross margin expansion, with EBITDA and PBT marginally ahead after a 48% increase in brand investment through its advertising and promotional activities. Net cash advanced by almost £40K (+4%) over the year on the back of an operating cash inflow of £85K. Innovation continues apace, with the recent launch of RedLeg Caramelised Pineapple Spiced Rum, along with new gift packaging and miniature bottle formats for RedLeg and Blackwoods Gin. We are reflecting our more cautious outlook on short-term UK consumer spending prospects in our new forecasts, primarily for the current FY20E year.
Distil has published a trading update on its Q4 performance, ahead of its prelims announcement next month. Revenues and volumes fell in Q4 as a result of Distil’s successful promotional activities in the peak Q3 period alongside the late timing of Easter. These declines were however in line with management expectations. Distil’s full year performance is therefore anticipated to be in line with current market expectations, and our forecasts remain unchanged. Distil has also announced the welcome launch of a new flavour variant to its successful RedLeg spiced rum brand. Sales of this brand extension, Caramelised Pineapple, will commence in June, initially with a soft launch through the on-trade channel only.

The UK market showed a continued recovery in the first quarter albeit the indices are still well short of their all-time peaks, unlike many of their international peers. The FTSE 100 has risen by 1,186 points (21.4%) since the end of October and the FTSE 250 by 4,304 points (25.0%). The comparable performance since the start of the year is less spectacular- the FTSE 100 has risen by 253 points (3.9%) and the FTSE 250 has risen by 1,070 points (5.0%). The factors behind the sustained rally are familiar. The belief that the roll-out of the vaccine and some relaxation of lockdown limitations will lead to a significant economic recovery, compared to the collapse seen in the first half of 2020, due to lockdowns. Indeed, the recent economic picture is becoming more optimistic than previous expectations. According to the ONS, the economy grew a little more than initially estimated in Q4 last year. This means GDP for 2020 as a whole contracted by 9.8%, revised up marginally but still the worst contraction on record. Markets, in general, have focused upon the potential scope and extent of the recovery. The sectors and stocks that have outperformed have been seen as ‘recovery’ plays with a rotation from stocks seen as ‘lockdown’ winners into those set to benefit from the ‘unlocking of society’ and/or exposed to the consumer. We expect 2021 will continue to be a “stock-picker’s” market. The sharp increase in the household savings ratio in Q4 highlights the scope for a recovery driven by expenditure. As further lockdown limitations are lifted, evidence of this growth will help to underpin the more optimistic outlook for Q2 and beyond.

In what the company describe as an “unprecedented year”, Cake Box’s trading update for the year ended 31st March has once again confirmed the potency of the Group’s format and franchise model to us. Total revenues are reported ahead by c16%, supported by an attractive combination of strong organic franchisee growth (24 new sites) and very positive LFL growth (when trading was permitted). Balance sheet strength is also a major virtue, with period end net cash at £3.6m, which is expected to build further given Cake Box’s capital light, cash generative model – optionality around the use of cash is building in our view. The franchisee pipeline is strong, the kiosk opportunity is in very early days and the Group is very well set as UK retail and entertainment reopens.

Diversification means Carr’s Group provides essential infrastructure to the global nuclear industry and occupies a critical position in food supply chains in the UK, the US and Europe. As a result, almost all of its businesses have remained operational during the coronavirus pandemic. While group profitability was adversely affected by the low oil price caused by the pandemic, we see potential for recovery driven by greater penetration of international markets for animal feed supplements during FY21 and a return to more normal oil prices from FY22 onwards.

In the last fortnight, we have surrendered some of the notable progress made over the last three months. That said, the optimism displayed by markets, driven by progress with vaccines and their rollout, persists. The recent direction of markets has been set by volatility in US markets, driven by specific retail market developments. Domestically, we have seen a broadly upbeat procession of results and trading updates/outlooks have, generally, been at least in line. The share price reactions have been commensurately positive. In addition to the results news flow, we have continued to see examples of M&A activity across a range of sectors. We have also seen a pick-up in IPO activity. Regarding the outlook, we have the Bank of England MPC Minutes on Thursday and Q4 2020 GDP numbers on 12 February. Most notably, we have the UK Budget on 3 March when the Chancellor will set out the next phase of the plan to tackle the virus and protect jobs. We will also have the latest forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility. That said, if signs of a greater than anticipated economic recovery are feasible in Q2 & Q3 and, potentially, only limited lockdowns are likely later in the year, grounds for greater optimism for UK small caps could lead to further outperformance in 2021, especially if M&A activity continues, in a world awash with cash.

Cranswick’s Q3 2021 trading update for the 13 weeks to 26th December makes for very pleasant reading, with ‘strong’ sales momentum leading to a 6% CPTP upgrade to £123m, EPS of 188.3p, so yoy growth >20%. Cranswick is in rude health. Total sales growth is not disclosed, though we estimate in the mid-high single digit range, in part capturing the benefit of the strong trading already disclosed by the UK grocers and broader supply chain. As was observed through H1 2021, we are encouraged that growth appears broad based, with we believe all categories in positive volume territory. Cranswick is a highquality operator, which alongside the transfer of calories to in-home consumption is also capturing the benefit of sustained growth investment through new business wins (poultry and pork), and bolt-on corporate activity. Trading on a FY2021 PER of 18.3x, falling to 17.6x in FY2022 (5-year avg. 20.3x), and an EV/EBITDA multiple of 10.7x, falling to 10.3x (5-year avg. 12.3x), we see an attractive opportunity to access a high quality, cash generative, high returning growth stock.

The Budget offered a clear picture of the state of the economy. Put simply, the economy will be 3% smaller in three years’ time than it would have been without the impact of the pandemic. However, it is forecast to return to pre-pandemic levels by mid-2022, six months earlier than previously thought. The OBR forecasts that the UK economy will grow by 4.1% in 2021, (lower than the 5.5% outlined in November 2020). It has set its GDP forecasts in 2022, 2023 and 2024 at 7.3%, 1.7% and 1.6%. Positively, we have a continuation of substantial support for various parts of the economy – totalling £350bn. The market may focus on two elements. Under the so-called “super-deduction scheme, businesses which invest in the next two years will be able to claim 130% of the cost against their tax bill. This is significant but also significant is the proposed increase in corporation tax on profits from 19% to 25% in 2023. This has material consequences. Looking that far ahead is not straightforward. The increased tax charge will inevitably impact ratings. This may not be a consideration currently but may become one as more FY2023 estimates are introduced. Closer to home, we have continued to see most results/updates in line with expectations. An increasing number of companies have restored dividends. M&A across a broad range of sectors also looks set to continue.
