Investment summary

In FY17 SGR recorded overall revenue growth of 6% and reported PBT of £4.6m, 24% ahead. Stripping out balance sheet impairments (which were down from £2.7m to £1.9m) adjusted PBT increased 27.5% to £5.1m. Capital Markets saw a small reduction in turnover reflecting the mix of business in an active year which saw additions to its corporate client base. Increased costs in preparation for MiFID II resulted in lower divisional profits at £5.2m vs £6.8m. The Asset Management division performed very strongly with AUM up 5% to £865m, revenue up 24% and profits more than 50% ahead at £3m. In the Principal Finance area the loss was reduced. Adjusted EPS rose 53% to 20.5p and the full year dividend doubled to 10p. Recent transactions (June/July) include a £200m secondary placing for Playtech, the IPO of Cake Box and a secondary placing for Motorpoint (£22.5m).

Industry outlook

Equity markets have rallied following volatility early in the year and are broadly unchanged ytd and this, together with SGR’s own successful development of its franchise in corporate finance and growth in asset management, are positive factors prospectively. H118 results are likely to be announced towards the end of September.
