Investment summary

Since listing on AIM in 2014, MMH has established a strong track record as it has transformed and grown to rank seventh among UK automotive retailing groups. The strong brand coverage, excellent relationships with major manufacturers and a healthy balance sheet should continue to support strategic development. Despite a volatile Q318 for UK new car registrations, in the recent trading update management raised its outlook for FY18 due to strong used car performance. The FY19 outlook remains challenging with Brexit looming. In addition to likely modest market declines, management continues to work hard to mitigate cost pressures.

Industry outlook

Market dynamics favour larger motor dealership groups against smaller independent groups, which still command c 60% of the franchise market. Global manufacturing overcapacity still points to OEM support, although market and buyer confidence is undermined by Brexit concerns, negative sentiment on diesel and PCP finance and potential H218 new car supply disruption rates. The large rating discount to the FTSE All-Share General Retailers Index fails to recognise defensive qualities across a sector where used vehicle and aftersales activities account for the majority of profits.
