Investment summary

An encouraging order intake period just before the H118 results announcement has proved to be a false read for the remainder of the year. A previously variable UK intake profile has weakened in the last few weeks across Walker Greenbank’s premium brand portfolio, although Clarke & Clarke is understood to be showing good y-o-y progress. Elsewhere in Brands, International and Licensing revenues are trading well and ahead of the prior year. Close to half of the Manufacturing division’s gross revenue supports Brand activities so the weaker sales trend also affects performance here.

Industry outlook

The UK interior furnishings industry has experienced uncertainty for many years under the influence of economic shifts and fashion changes. Many brands have failed to grow, while significant production capacity has been closed down, with manufacture for the volume segment largely moved overseas. Success continues to be delivered by those businesses that are able to differentiate themselves from competition by consistently offering innovative and high-quality design and products.
