Investment summary

Growing corporate and government awareness around safety and energy efficiency create an attractive backdrop to Lakehouse’s compliance and energy services business, where strong regulatory drivers have the potential to deliver substantial medium-term EBITA growth. The management team appointed in July 2016 to reverse the decline in performance is taking bold decisions. Property services and construction, which have historically been a drag on the group’s performance, are now to be divested. Heads of terms have been agreed and were announced with the interim results on 26 June, but execution risks in completing the divestment remain. We believe this will result in a better business exposed to growth drivers with a lower-risk profile, which will gradually be reflected in the earnings and valuation multiples expanding.
