Investment summary

Trifast has released a pre-close update that has indicated the favourable trading conditions persisted through the final quarter, boosted by FX tailwinds. As a result profits have exceeded management expectations, accompanied by a strong cash performance. We have increased our earnings estimates for both 2017 and 2018 once again. When combined with the stronger than expected net debt position this has led us to also increase our dividend expectations.

Industry outlook

The global specialist industrial fasteners market is valued at around £25bn. Successful manufacturers and distributors responded to the shift in manufacturing to lower-cost regions by developing their own local facilities and/or supply routes. They have also created effective logistical services and shifted the emphasis towards more complex products to increase value added. A recent increase in M&A activity in the sector looks set to continue in the immediate future.
