Unilever’s bid for GSK’s Consumer HealthCare division is causing a stir, as it seems totally unreasonable. The group was asked to move on portfolio rotation, but definitely not to be so ambitious at the risk of penalising shareholders.

What’s cooking in the IPO kitchen?
Hercules Site Services a technology enabled labour supply company for the UK infrastructure sector, intends to float on AIM. Hercules is seeking to raise approximately £5.5m to rapidly deliver on the significant demand it is experiencing for its diverse range of services across the UK infrastructure sector, including to scale up its operations to supply labour to the northern section of the HS2 rail project

Companies: Accrol Group Holdings plc
Accrol has released H1 results, which are 7% below last year’s level at the adjusted EBITDA level at £5.0m despite significant supply chain disruption and cost escalation. We made our earnings adjustments in the trading update last week but reduce our net debt forecasts by 13% to £23.9m reflecting lower capital expenditure investment. We believe more can be done to reduce this through working capital efficiencies, but we have left our assumptions on this unchanged for now.

Sanderson Design Group (SDG) has announced a trading update for the current financial year ending 31 January 2022 (FY22E). Strong performances, most notably from the group’s manufacturing and licensing activities, have resulted in the Board’s expectation of adjusted profit before tax of at least £12.0m, compared with the £7.1m delivered in FY21. This equates to an increase of at least 70% over FY21. Our upgrade to £12.0m represents a 14% increase on our previous adjusted PBT forecast of £10.6m.

The group has released a year-end trading update confirming a performance broadly in line with our forecast. We introduce a forecast for 2022 for the first time, based on the expectation that the UK&I business will move to a breakeven position in the current year, reflecting the benefits of the strategic rebuild implemented over the past three years.

Where next for markets in 2022? In our view, if COVID is not on the way out, we are just going to have to live with it now and it will have less and less impact on economic forecasts going forward. Instead, the bigger issues for investors to deal with in 2022 are cost inflation and staff shortages for business (which are already hitting earnings momentum), energy cost inflation and higher taxes hitting the consumer wallet, and markets that start from very elevated valuation multiples compared wi

FY21A Results were well flagged in November’s trading update. Today’s announcement reveals the Group is now debt free and reiterates its intention to return to the dividend list in the current period. Shoe Zone has a clear and well-defined plan to transform its store portfolio and grow its digital offer through its shoehub platform, which we believe will deliver a well-balanced retail model that can win market share and drive profitable growth.

H1'22 Interim Results: Caution Ahead!
Companies: Frontier Developments Plc
Games Workshop Group’s (GAW’s) H122 results reflect lower year-on-year revenue growth after a very strong FY21, as expected, with positive comments on new launches, specifically the third edition of Age of Sigmar. Ongoing internal investment to support future growth and new external cost pressures led to a reduction in operating profit pre-royalties, which was more than offset by the notable increase in royalty income. As previously flagged, the shape of our FY22 forecasts has changed to reflect

Residential-for-rent developer and manager Watkin Jones today delivered an 11% rise in PBT to £51.1m for FY2021, beating our estimate of £50.0m by 2.2%. There were similar ‘beats’ in EPS and dividend, at 16.3p and 8.2p, respectively, driven by strong operational delivery and cost control. We have maintained our earnings and dividend estimates for FY2022E, growing at over 6%. We have also introduced forecasts for FY2023E, which assume accelerated earnings growth of 31% as the strong development p

Another strong update from Galliford Try, with trading in line with expectations, order book growth of £100m & average month end cash up £16m since the FY21 results, a strong pipeline confirmed, and good progress made on the integration of the nmcn water business. Management is sticking to its strategy and its focus on safety, and it is paying off, yet the valuation still looks extremely cheap, with cash alone covering >90% of the market cap, and PPAs more than covering the rest - implying a ne

We continue to believe that IMB is not necessarily a short-term strategic investment given the fact that the company is entering the second year of its “strengthening phase” with further investments which should weigh on margins, so no major improvement in the shareholder return.

Surface Transforms has announced a further and large contract award with customer OEM 6. To recap, on Tuesday, the Group issued a warning that sales for 2021e would be “below £3m” vs. our forecast for £4.7m. This was due to short-term furnace processing delays for early orders for OEM 8. Sales are not lost and will carry forward into 2022e. Management also said that more contract award news would be coming imminently.
