Ongoing strong demand remains encouraging for Accsys and investment to support future growth is also an indicator of confidence in the outlook, in our view. The broader strategic plan – including well-flagged and material capacity expansion – is intact and our earnings expectations are materially as before. Accsys is at a key business development stage and poised to enter a significant earnings growth phase.

A well-established and profitable market presence generated from the Arnhem Accoya facility represents a springboard for Accsys to bring new facilities and revenues on stream. In reinstating estimates, we also provide a framework for investors to appraise expected completion of the nascent Hull Tricoya operation and a prospective new US facility. These are both material developments and provide Accsys with the opportunity to generate significantly higher earnings.

Accoya wood progress in FY20 to date continues to validate the business model and expansion undertaken last year. The new Tricoya project is also progressing albeit with commissioning slipping by some months into H2 calendar 2020. Our existing model accommodates these effects and we have made no changes save for adding FY22 estimates for the first time. For now, on our unchanged estimates, we continue to contend that the current valuation is underpinned by Accoya.
FY19 performance at the Arnhem Accoya facility has been robust with successful delivery of higher volumes from raised capacity. Construction delays at the new Hull Tricoya facility outside Accsys’s control are a near-term frustration and dampen EBITDA progression over our forecast horizon. That said, achieving a positive group EBITDA outturn in FY19 is a significant milestone. The current valuation is underpinned by Arnhem.
Accsys continues to make positive progress and is now generating revenue from its latest investment at Arnhem. We expect the new, under-construction Tricoya facility to follow suit within the next year, at which point annual group revenue potential will be around €150m according to management. In the near term, we expect to see an EBITDA positive outturn in FY19.
AGM comments point to operational progress at Arnhem and an on-track construction schedule for the new Tricoya facility at Hull. Accsys has set out a clear development plan for the group; while we are not placing undue weight on a short trading period, we are encouraged to see that growing revenues and production volumes have been achieved in the year to date.
Building on Accsys's established international presence the current significant investment phase (€80m+ capex) should be the catalyst for accelerated business growth. We expect Accsys to move into a group EBITDA positive position from FY19 with the significant profit potential to be progressively delivered thereafter. Our DCF analysis suggests that the share price is solidly underpinned at current levels with upside from enhanced commercial development of proprietary technology.
Successful expansion of its established Accoya facility at Arnhem should pave the way for Accsys to become EBITDA positive at the group level during FY19. A dedicated Tricoya facility (construction underway, first production expected from mid-2019) provides another clear platform for further profit growth. As this becomes more apparent, we believe it will be a catalyst for positive share price performance.
Accsys has reported H1 FY2018 interim results, delivering 13% revenue growth to a capacity-constrained €28.3m. Gross margin has been impacted by several, individually small, temporary pressures while the new Accoya reactor delivering a 50% capacity increase is a little late in delivery. These factors chip away at our forecasts a little but the longer-term picture and investment case remain unchanged. Retain Buy and 100p price target.

Friday's market sell off saw some violent downward moves in many stocks with little initial differentiation between sectors or the key drivers of businesses, creating significant share price drops in a number of higher quality or uncorrelated names. We take a look at some stocks we believe have either seen an unwarranted sell-off, have seen weakness go under the radar or where there is now a more attractive opportunity.
