Investment summary

As already announced, record FY17 profits have exceeded management expectations and growth was delivered with a strong cash performance and a sharp rise in the dividend. We have increased our EPS estimates marginally for 2018 with restrained growth expectations. As Trifast continues to deliver on its strategy, the 10% rating discount to peers should moderate.

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.
