Investment summary

H117 results provided clear evidence of business momentum with a strategy to accelerate the influence of innovation on future growth rates. Following a series of announcements and the H1 cash flow presentation, the ongoing pension, and therefore group, funding positions are now fully visible. The combination of these points indicates an aspiration to achieve faster group progress, in our view.

Industry outlook

Population growth is the ultimate trend driver for clothing and footwear demand. Increasing urbanisation, mobility and wealth are all features of this overall growth. Consumer consumption will generally track GDP growth over time. Economic and demographic differences at a country level mean that the local characteristics of demand vary. Coats is the world’s leading industrial thread and consumer textile crafts business.
