Investment summary

Q1 sales contracted 10% to £40.1m but operating profit was flat at £2.1m and cash flow improved with the cash balance up to £24.4m from £21.8m at year end. Guidance of £12m operating profit for the full year has been maintained, although converting what looks to be a reasonably healthy pipeline will be key to achieving this. Looking longer-term, investment in new products and the progressive transitioning of the business to a more product-driven model give scope for margin expansion substantially beyond our forecast level. Thus we feel the shares remain interesting for those with a recovery remit.

Industry outlook

PSI is well established in Germany. While the government’s energy transition policy (away from nuclear towards renewables) creates a near-term headwind domestically, investment needs to resume at some stage to support changes in the supply-demand dynamic. Once current issues are worked through, PSI should be able to return to a robust growth and margin expansion trajectory.
