Investment summary

The impressive record since management restructuring nine years ago restored confidence both internally and across the supplier and customer base. Organic progress is being delivered, while M&A extends the product, geographical and customer spread, providing cross-selling opportunities. A strong set of interim results led us to upgrade our EPS forecasts for FY18 by 5.0% and FY19 by 2.5%. Investment for growth continues across all regions and the strong balance sheet should facilitate M&A, with management taking a more proactive approach in target identification.

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.
