Investment summary

Cenkos differentiates itself by its meritocratic remuneration policy leading to a flexible cost structure; staff ownership of risk; focus on diversified, profitable niches; and returns of capital to its owners. The quality of staff attracted to this model has delivered outperformance in tough conditions, but also in better ones. While positive, the key issue is that the model is delivering an excellent flow of deals of increasingly large size (eg the recent Haversham BCA £1bn + deal). 2015 has started with “a number of significant fund-raisings” and the May AGM statement noted the business was trading well. Our numbers assume all earnings are paid out by dividend and in a December buy-back.

Industry outlook

Cenkos has completed and is working on a number of significant fund-raisings. Delivery of this pipeline is dependent on market conditions, which remains uncertain. June 2015 UK average daily order book trades were up 23% on June 2014, and £2.8bn has been raised on AIM ytd against £3.78bn in FY14.
