Investment summary

Consistent messaging from the Epwin management team continued with a year-end update that confirmed that FY18 trading had been in line with market expectations. The theme of self-help given market headwinds is ongoing with tangible evidence of actions taken and planned. Market backdrop uncertainty is reflected in Epwin’s rating multiples. A dividend yield approaching 7% (c 1.9x covered) should be of interest to investors.

Industry outlook

Epwin is exposed to both RMI (c 70% revenue) and newbuild (c 30%) in the UK housing market. Newbuild activity is clearly still growing, while RMI demand has been more patchy. Referencing potential post Brexit consumer confidence, industry commentators have expressed near-term caution.
