Gateley has announced the bolt-on acquisition of Tozer Gallagher, a leading practice of chartered quantity surveyors and construction consultants, for up to £700k. The acquisition adds complementary services to the Property platform and looks to be a good cultural fit; the businesses have worked closely together in the past and share a number of clients. For now, we assume modest earnings accretion (1% in each year) with scope for further growth over time under Gateley’s ownership. Equally impor

Gateley has delivered an outstanding set of results for FY’21. Revenue increased by 10.5% to £121.4m and underlying PBT by 7.1% to £19.3m (1%/3% ahead of our recently upgraded expectations). Financial highlights include 5.5% organic growth in core Legal Services and c.£20m of free cash generation. The year end net cash position of c.£20m has already supported the resumption of dividends and paves the way for further, accretive M&A. A current year P/E rating of 15x represents a 30% discount to pe
Today’s full year update highlights a very strong conclusion to FY21, prompting us to upgrade revenue and PBT forecasts by 9% and 34% respectively. This comfortably continues an unbroken record of revenue and profit growth, supported by increasing confidence in end markets, alongside Gateley’s well balanced business model and strong culture. We fully expect this to continue and see scope for organic growth momentum to be bolstered by a return to the acquisition trail. Trading on a modest cal’22
Gateley has released a very positive trading update, highlighting a strong conclusion to the year to 30th April. Revenue and PBT are both expected to be materially ahead of expectations, reflecting a highly supportive backdrop and the careful management of costs during the pandemic. We will update forecasts alongside the pre-close later this month and tentatively anticipate a mid-teens PBT/EPS upgrade. An interim dividend of 2.5p has been declared with a final to follow (total dividend expected
Back in January, we selected Gateley as one of our Best Ideas for 2021, highlighting its modest valuation relative to peers and an excellent track record of growth. The business model has proven its resilience, whilst the interims highlighted strong momentum building. The shares were making good progress until a few weeks ago, but have since underperformed peers (-9.5% from recent peak). We retain our positive stance, noting an improving market backdrop and a supportive March Budget.
Activity levels have seen a sustained increase following a -20% decline in Q1. YTD, cumulative activity levels crossed over to positive territory over in November. Activity levels hit 100% effective utilisation in November with continued strength in December. This increase has been driven by the return of transactional activity, which is expected to continue in to the next financial year.
Gateley has reported highly resilient interims (revenue -2.6% to £50.5m, PBT +13.2% to £7.5m). The impact of the pandemic in the early months of the year was almost entirely offset by the contribution from acquisitions and a recovery in activity as the half-year progressed. The Property platform continues to perform well and Corporate has seen a strong pick-up in recent months, underpinning full year expectations. Cash generation was a highlight (net cash of £9.3m at the period end), which we ex
Gateley has reported solid interim results with profits and cash position improving despite COVID measures although much of this was known from the recent trading update. The Group intends to reinstatement dividends at the year end which could support the stock at this time but we see better recovery potential elsewhere in the sector and some strategic challenges in Gateley's business. Neutral
Gateley’s H1 update is highly impressive, confirming a year on year improvement in activity levels in September and October and a strong sense of optimism at the beginning of H2. The Platforms continue to drive new business, whilst operating margins have benefited from cost actions taken in response to the pandemic (H1 PBT will show growth year on year). In light of the confident tenor of the statement, we reintroduce headline forecasts this morning, assuming stable revenue this year - which wou
Gateley’s FY20 results highlight another year of revenue and underlying profit growth despite the impact of COVID-19 in the final two months of the year. Swift action was taken in response to the pandemic and the Group ended the year in a strong position with negligible net debt and activity improving. Given the track record of growth through previous cycles and the strength of Gateley’s market position, we fully expect the Group to return to, and exceed, previous levels of profitability over ti
Gateley has issued a solid year end trading update despite inevitable COVID-19 related disruption in the last two months of the year (to 30th April). Revenue for the year will be not less than £108.0m (FY19: £103.5m). As anticipated, the breadth and depth of the Group’s legal and consulting service lines have underpinned a resilient outcome with the transition to remote working going smoothly. Swift action has been taken to mitigate the impact of the pandemic, whilst keeping teams intact to ensu
Today’s trading update highlights an inevitable degree of disruption relating to COVID-19, the full financial impact of which is difficult to estimate. The Board has suspended financial guidance for the time being (we withdraw forecasts for now) and taken the prudent decision to suspend the interim dividend to maximise short term liquidity. We consider these sensible steps in light of the unprecedented nature of the current situation and the high level of uncertainty over the depth and duration

Today’s trading update from Driver Group is optimistic, highlighting a material improvement in activity levels during Q4 and a positive start to Q1 ’22. The rise in demand for the highermargin expert services, combined with a decline in the impact of the pandemic on decision making, a restructuring of the Middle East / APAC regions, and new offices, have resulted in renewed positive momentum.
