Investment summary

A c 50%+ uplift in full year earnings and dividends and further growth in group cash balances were the headline financial highlights of FY17. Underlying EBIT and a maiden FY profit contribution from the Indian JV were both ahead of our expectations, partly offset by higher interest and share-based payments leaving group PBT slightly better than anticipated overall. Solid operational performance in the UK – with the highest H2 activity levels for seven years – and in India, which saw both revenue and margin gains y-o-y. At the same time, there is clear evidence of investment in equipment, processes, systems and people across the business, which indicates that this progress and future prospects are well-founded.

Executive Interview - Severfield

Industry outlook

The primary strategic aim is to maintain Severfield’s position as the leading UK structural steelwork supplier. An Indian JV (established in 2010) is fully operational and targeting similar sectors to those served in the UK. Management has valued the Indian construction market at c £100bn pa, with a very low penetration of steel structures currently.
