The nanomaterials market is transitioning from a concept technology to commercial applications. Haydale (HAYD.LON) specialises in the integration of nanomaterials into commercial and industrial technologies. We argue that this is a good position to occupy within the value chain – exposed to end market growth but not exposed (negatively) to the likely future price compression in raw graphene or other nanomaterials. Major applications for Haydale (HAYD.LON) include composite materials, specialty inks and coatings, and additive manufacturing (3D printing). The nanomaterials are graphene and silicon carbide, and potential others in future. We argue that these applications have now reached a tipping point from research to commercial reality (see pie charts p2).

Whether we know it or not, advanced materials are a core component in the everyday life of the everyday person. They are the key material in items we often disregard, such as printer inks and lotions, to objects which defy the laws of gravity like the Airbus A380 and London’s Shard. Furthermore, these materials are not only essential to many objects and structures, but, due to their superior qualities, are the key to the advancement of many industries. One such example is the use of carbon fibre which offers five to ten times more rigidness, stiffness, and strength than its aluminium counterpart. As a result of these impressive qualities, motorsport and athletics have improved ten-fold since their mainstream use and new records are broken every year.

Elderstreet stake acquired 02 GENERAL NEWS Globalworth premium In this issue Venture capital firm Draper Esprit has taken a 30.8% stake in venture capital trust manager Elderstreet. Both investment managers focus on the technology sector and they will be able to co-invest. Elderstreet has investments in a number of AIM-quoted companies through its VCTs. The purchase was funded by an issue of Draper Esprit shares worth just over £250,000. Simon Cook, the chief executive of Draper Esprit, is a former partner at Elderstreet so he knows the business and the people who run it, although he did leave more than 14 years ago. Cook has previously acquired portfolios from 3i and Cazenove, two other firms where he has worked. Draper Esprit has an option to acquire the remaining shares in Elderstreet, which has more than £25m under management. Adding Elderstreet to the group enables Draper Esprit to offer investors a range of EIS funds, VCTs and an ISA qualifying listed evergreen patient capital fund. The enlarged group has venture capital assets under management of more than £350m. At the end of September 2016, Draper Esprit had a net asset value of 352p a share, which is similar to the current share price. The June 2016 flotation price was 300p a share. Draper Esprit is quoted on Ireland’s Enterprise Securities Market as well as AIM.

In our third edition of Trend spotting we stick with our suggestion at the end of March to up European exposure and we review the recent market moves and macro trends. We comment on the recent strong performance of our growth, quality and momentum styles which we expect to continue and we examine what happened to sectors around the last general election period in 2015, adding some new colour.

After the Interims in November, we said that forecast risk was higher due to the c37:63 H1:H2 PBT weighting, but that management was confident of achieving this. Unfortunately, this has not proved possible and results for FY18 are now anticipated to be significantly below previous expectations. Forecast downgrades are 27% off PBT in both FY18 and FY19. Forecast net debt of £32.9m is 2.1x EBITDA and well within covenant levels (2.75x). The FD and the Chairman are to leave and Mark Rollins, highly regarded by us from his time at Senior, becomes Chairman. There are good businesses within the Group, but there is a long road of confidence rebuilding ahead. We reduce our target price to 91p (P/E of 10x FY18) and move to Hold.
As indicated in November, the FY18 out-turn was always dependent on a handful of new orders being awarded in H2. Unfortunately news came this morning that these have now been deferred (but importantly not lost) by the associated customers (2 at Technical Plastics and 3 at Wipac), along with the non-ramp up of volumes at a major non-medical TP client. As a result, FY18 PBT will be “significantly” below previous expectations. Additionally, given these programs would have contributed towards next year’s numbers, the company has also prudently reduced FY19 guidance - albeit still representing “healthy YoY growth”.
We anticipate a positive year for Elementis in 2018. This is the first year to benefit fully from SummitReheis, last year’s transformational acquisition. Meanwhile macroeconomic and peer group-specific indicators look positive. PPG last week reporting their strongest quarterly volume growth for three years. In our view, recent strategic progress is not yet reflected in the share price, which lagged the peer group last year. We continue to see intrinsic value in excess of 330p (14x FY18 EV/EBITDA).
Carclo has recently announced that its FY18 performance is likely to be lower than previously expected. This is because of contract delays affecting both the Technical Plastics (CTP) and LED Technologies (LED) divisions as well as a delay to the anticipated ramp-up in a non-medical project for CTP, which management expected would benefit H218. We reduce our FY18 and FY19 estimates, introduce FY20 estimates and revise our indicative valuation range from 177-187p/share to 145-154p/share.
We have refreshed our momentum screen for a second time, the previous refresh having been in January. As before, the screen selects the 25 stocks exhibiting the strongest momentum, according to our measurement method. From these we selected 9 to focus on. Since the last refresh the screen has significantly outperformed both the main small-cap and micro-cap indices against a background of strong and stable momentum generally. We also present here a wider study of accelerating and decelerating momentum stocks, because of interesting behaviour noticed previously. The interim conclusion is that these two characteristics are a significant differentiator of performance. We show on pages 7 and 8 the current most accelerative and decelerative stocks.

Byotrol reported FY17 results, in line with our expectations, building on previous sales growth and increasing market share gains. Revenues were £3.1m (18% growth YoY) with the company having generated an adj. EBITDA of c.£0.1m, assisted by a £1.0m payment from Solvay in H217; typical of technical development payments generated by Byotrol over the past four years. Recent EPA approval in the US is a game changer in our opinion potentially opening up the $1bn anti-microbial US market. The company has conditionally raised £4.5m (with up to a further £1.1m via an Open Offer) for sales and marketing expenditure costs across both the US and EU/ROW as well as to strengthen the balance sheet. Building upon recent EPA approval, Byotrol's 24hr anti-microbial claims are likely to attract a large US-based partner in FY18 leading to significant uplifts in subsequent FY19 and FY20 sales (£6.6m and £9.7m respectively). We retain our 9p target price: FY19 EV/Sales and EV/EBITDA of 4.7x and 27.7x.
Highlights this quarter: Economics: Generally, the data points to modest growth continuing, with a more positive trend in PMI surveys suggesting decent m manufacturing momentum over the next six months. Currency weakness continues to be a double-edged sword for U K manufacturers, with exporters gaining competitiveness while input prices have risen. There has recently been a divergence of sterling’s performance against the euro and the USD. Those in commodity or competitive product areas may well have seen margin erosion, while many in intermediary goods have already passed on price increases to their customers. With low unemployment, the prospect of tighter labour markets post-Brexit and public sector pay caps starting to come off also signals the potential for some labour inflation, long absent from the UK industrial scene. Topic of the quarter: We believe that powerful macro and sectoral pressures will drive further significant changes to the manufacturing supply chain over the next few years. We investigate some of these pressures, with the move to outsource suppliers to low- cost centres, like China, now seeing a slight reverse flow with some restoring to shorten complex and often inflexible supply chains. We see systems technology facilitating greater supply-chain control and efficiency. Brexit will present challenges to the UK supply chain with price and time to market barriers likely to rise, presenting challenges to the UK’s highly integrated and time-sensitive supply chain. Slick distribution infrastructure and greater information sharing with suppliers are likely to prove winning strategies in optimising logistics and gaining stock efficiencies. Sector valuation: The industrials sector has continued to exhibit strength, with small-cap industrials outperforming by 2 % on last year and larger cap industrials by 17%. Currency and improving economic data have been a positive for the sector. While some other sectors have seen a pick-up in profit warnings over recent months, industrial technology companies have announced generally positive or in-line trading updates that have helped to drive the small-cap Industrials to an EV EBITDA of 8.4x and a P/E of 16.7x with the traditional small-cap discount narrowing.

Byotrol released interim results for the six months to 30 September, showing increased LBITDA of -£0.59m (-£0.51m) as it builds out its commercialisation capabilities. FY 2018 was always expected to be H2-weighted given the regulatory and commercial status of its three strategic initiatives. Whilst the exact timing of any deal for its long-lasting (24 hour) anti-microbial, consumer-directed formulations (EPA-registered trigger spray in the US or Actizone in Europe and the ROW) is uncertain, management's outlook statement provides comfort that there are sufficient near-term opportunities to support our forecasts for an H2 adjusted EBITDA of £240k. There is no change to our forecasts or price target of 9p.
