WYG (WYG)

Business description

WYG is a multidiscipline, project management and management service consultancy. Over half of revenues are generated in the UK, with the remainder in a spread of international markets.

Investment summary

WYG faced a number of challenges in FY18 but ended the year with an improved market backdrop, higher divisional order books and benefits from management actions starting to come through. Guidance and our profit estimates are unchanged. With greater business stability and a focus on margins and cash generation (plus receding legacy issues) investors will be able to concentrate on the earnings recovery story. This may be partly discounted following a recent share price pick up, but in the context of historic earnings levels there is more to go for.
