The key message from today’s FY19 results is solid transformational progress and delivery on the market’s financial expectations. This is a complex set of results, reflective of major restructuring e.g. CVA, fundraise, disposal programme, significant cost cutting and new vision/strategy/operating model. MTC is now moving towards the next step of its transformation plan to develop MTC as a global brand.

The pace of change has been accelerated to keep up with the consumer, competition and turbulent economic backdrop. Weak UK LFL sales and gross profit margin trends since Sept 2017 point to problems with MTC’s overall customer value proposition. The immediate focus is on the basics, simplifyi

H1'22 Interim Results: Caution Ahead!

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.

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.

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
