Investment summary

The recovery in both US feed block sales and the UK manufacturing businesses noted at Carr’s Group’s AGM in January has continued throughout H118. This has resulted in a 22% improvement in adjusted PBT year-on-year and a slight over-performance compared with management’s expectations. H218 has started well, so we raise our estimates and adjust our indicative valuation from 167p/share to 169p/share.

Industry outlook

US feed block volumes continued to recover as cattle prices for producers improved. This growth is augmented by the low moisture feed block plant in Tennessee that recently commenced production. In the UK, the integration of Pearson Farm Supplies is going well. Work continues on the significant fabrication contract that was delayed until almost the end of FY17, and demand from the oil and gas sector is strengthening, enabling the UK manufacturing business to trade substantially ahead of the prior year. The remote handling businesses continue to perform well, as they too work through a strong order book.
