Investment summary

WYG trading has been affected by funding transition delays, underperformance in UK planning and contract adjustments in other areas. International development has seen slower new project progression as a number of instruments move into their next programme funding cycles. In the UK, WYG started the year with a reasonably good order book position and has announced some sizeable framework appointments, although workflow has been slow to build. Lastly, in the UK, a review of engineering contracts has highlighted the likelihood of some less favourable outcomes than previously anticipated. Consequently, we have reduced our EBIT estimates by around one-third in all forecast years. Notionally, the funding transition effects should be temporary and we may well revisit our estimates for FY19 and FY20 if there is evidence to support this.

Executive Interview - WYG

Industry outlook

Management is clearly focused on margin improvement predicated on the efficient delivery of high-quality consultancy services and rigorous operational and financial control. Extending the multi-discipline service offering along seven identified sector lines, particularly in international markets, is a key component. Market diversity offers both challenges and opportunities, requiring proactive and reactive approaches to business development.
