Investment summary

There were a number of headwinds and tailwinds in FY18, in which good growth was delivered, but lower earnings expectations have dominated sentiment. Walker Greenbank has some strong and unique market positions and is becoming increasingly active in broadening its revenue mix into faster-growing segments. Success here and greater stability in UK demand will translate to rating expansion in our view.

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 businesses able to differentiate themselves from competition by consistently offering innovative and high-quality design and products.
