Investment summary

Carr’s Group is building market-leading positions in high-value, growing sectors in global agricultural and engineering markets, increasing its international footprint and differentiating itself through innovative technologies such as low-moisture feed blocks and highly specialised robotic arms for use in hazardous environments such as the nuclear industry. This strategy delivered a 49% rise in adjusted PBT during FY18. It also reduces the group’s exposure to variations in UK weather and government farming policy.

Industry outlook

We expect these positive growth trends to continue. The UK agriculture industry remains positive and there is still potential for growth in the US following the opening of a new feed block facility earlier this year. The acquisition of Animax, with its complementary animal health products, should provide an additional boost. The Engineering order book is strong and recent sales of remote handling equipment from the German business through NuVision’s sales contacts in the US augur well. We have revised our FY19 and FY20 forecasts upwards and raised our indicative valuation by 4p/share to 182p/share.
