We have updated forecasts post H1 results (announced on 19th Sept), which highlighted a financial performance in line with our estimates and sales by product broadly in line with expectations (Silhouette Instalift™ slightly ahead; Sculptra® slightly below). We have left product-level forecasts broadly unchanged, with a downgrade to Sculptra® forecasts offset by higher expectations for Ellansé® following expected approval in Brazil in H1 2018. We continue to expect EBITDA profitability for FY2017

Interim results are in line with expectations, with a first significant contribution from US sales of Silhouette Instalift™. Top line growth of +6% YoY in constant currency is expected to accelerate in H2, and the Group continues to target EBITDA profitability for the full year. We reiterate Buy.
In 2016 Sinclair was transformed into a streamlined, pure-play aesthetics company with a concentrated, highly competitive, portfolio of differentiated injectable products. Effective, longer-lasting, natural looking, minimally invasive treatments are benefiting from the trend away from intensive plastic surgery and represent a major growth opportunity. Products are sold directly in Europe and Brazil, and via distributors elsewhere globally. In a detailed trading statement, sales progress of produ
As we approach 3rd January 2018 and the coming into force of the MiFID II legislation which changes the landscape for research, we are beginning to see some of the practical implications and complications. Brokers are in the early stages of working out how to structure charging for research, asset managers have already begun cutting their brokers’ lists and a model code of conduct for Research Payment Accounts for institutions has been published.

Despite the calling of a General Election for June 8th, the FTSE-100 continues to perform strongly, partly on the back of Wall Street and encouraging corporate figures. Since the surprise Election was called on April 18th, the FTSE-100 has advanced by over 5%. There has been no sign of political nerves as is normally the case with opinion polls conveying mixed messages.

We have updated product-level forecasts and included the £10m SVB debt facility and £5m warranty claim settlement with Alliance Pharma in our forecasts. The 6.3% upgrade to our FY2017 sales estimate (from £46.0m to £48.9m) brings expected EBITDA profitability forward by one year (to FY2017 from FY2018). We remain positive on the ongoing rollout of Silhouette Instalift® in particular and retain our Buy recommendation. However, higher expected sales & marketing costs and the warranty claim weigh o
After much heralding, MIFID II is finally beginning to have an impact on the business of investment research, though its true ramifications might take years to be seen. The role of analyst research is widely misunderstood. It is not all about the conclusion: the rating and price target. The real content of research is about what is discounted in the current share price and what assumptions would produce different outcomes.

In our second edition of “Trend spotting” we note how in the last three weeks the defensive rotation trend has gathered pace and further evidence has emerged of the “relative fading” in the UK economy. However we now see early signs of the “risk on” trend starting to reassert itself in equity markets and we look at small cap laggards plus European exposure as ways to play this.

Full-year results were in line with the preliminary guidance issued in early 2022. Feraccru revenues in Europe increased with a 60% increase in volumes and the US commercialisation of Accrufer continues, with broader insurance coverage (100m lives covered). As with many small cap companies, access to growth capital is currently difficult; however, the group has raised a $10m loan from a major shareholder providing a cash runway till end-2022.

Trading continues to track ahead of expectations, which have been upgraded twice so far YTD. There is clear evidence the growth strategy is bearing fruit. Distribution gains are increasing brand reach both in the UK and overseas. This appears to be an ideal time for its on-trend value-for-money proposition to gain traction, potentially with counter-cyclical characteristics as consumers start trading down. After the recent pull-back, valuation is undemanding for a 3-yr EPS CAGR of 13% with risk p

An update from CVS this morning covering conclusion of the CMA process, a further acquisition and update on trading. The CMA investigation into the acquisition of Quality Pet Care (QPC) is now complete, thereby bringing to an end a 9 month process. As part of the undertaking, CVS yesterday completed the sale of QPC for cash proceeds of c.£9m, implying a c.£12m impairment. Whilst the CMA episode has clearly been a setback, it does not seem to have fundamentally impaired ongoing M&A ambitions give

The strong momentum from Q4-21 has continued into H1-22, with revenues expected to be up by more than 22% YoY. The outlook remains positive supported by strong industry demand and market share gains in the UK, where the group’s sustainability and affordability credentials are increasingly resonating. Whilst some macro pressures remain, these look to be manageable. We therefore make no change to our forecasts at this stage, but are highly encouraged by current trends and remain optimistic for the
