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. H115 revenue (£53m) was the second best six months since Cenkos floated in 2007. Costs were well controlled and the pre-tax profit of £18.6m was four times the average since that time. Both H115 and H114 had £1bn+ plus deals. The interim dividend is 7p (yield 4% on interim alone) and an £8m share buyback (via tender offer) is expected shortly. Cenkos ceased to be Quindell's Nomad in August. Given weak market conditions in September, we have trimmed our FY15 revenue estimates from £75m to £73m.

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 remain uncertain. The September 2015 market equity issuance and AIM market trading stats were weak, reflecting market uncertainties including China.
