Investment summary

Management recently flagged licence and UK order book development below levels anticipated at the AGM and lowered FY19 PBT guidance to the £9.5–10m range. The share price is now at its lowest level for over five years and – trading below NAV – implicitly attributes no value to the brand portfolio. A dividend yield in excess of 5% could also be an attraction.

Industry outlook

The UK interior furnishings industry has experienced uncertainty for many years under the influence of economic shifts and fashion changes. Many brands have failed to grow, while significant production capacity has been closed down, with manufacture for the volume segment largely moved overseas. Success continues to be delivered by businesses able to differentiate themselves from competition by consistently offering innovative and high-quality design and products.
