Investment summary

PSI’s first half saw a contraction in order book and revenues. Underlying earnings moved ahead, but were affected by adjustments and restructuring charges in logistics. A recovery in order intake and growth is expected in H2, but geopolitical risk is increasing. Hence we have trimmed our earnings estimates for FY14 by 15% and for FY15 by 11%. The shares trade on recovery multiples with a relatively high P/E but low EV/sales. While patience will be needed, we feel the ingredients for a recovery are there. The unification of the product platform and shift towards a product-led model should give scope for operating margins to expand to the c 15% level over time.

Industry outlook

A recovery is now being anticipated in the German energy market, and prospects in the US are buoyed by renewed investment in the US metals industries. However, the outlook is less certain in some key overseas markets, with potential sanctions in Russia, martial rule in Thailand and the local debt build up in China clouding visibility.
