Investment summary

Augean’s half-year trading update has highlighted a challenging contract issue, which is reducing group profitability and weighing on the company’s outlook. Management is taking decisive steps to offset the problem by instigating a £2m cost reduction programme. Despite the risk of further negative newsflow as contract negotiations near completion in September, we take some comfort from the fact that, despite Augean’s challenges, both our forecasts and management guidance still imply a y-o-y increase in profit before tax.

Industry outlook

There is a growing trend towards treatment, recovery and recycling in the waste hierarchy, highlighted in the government's Strategy for Hazardous Waste Management. This increasingly more stringent environmental regulation supports Augean's specialist industry knowledge model and provides a platform for growth, in our view.
