Galliford Try Blames Caution On Impact Of Politicians !!

Galliford Try GFRD When the best that a company can find to say about its annual results is that they show a strong underlying performance, then you know that something went wrong. Otherwise it would be claiming a strong financial performance, and that  is something which Galliford can not claim. Profit before tax for the year to 30th June fell by 57% and earnings per share by 55%, even though it had the benefit of robust market conditions. The financial performance for the year was impacted by legacy costs in Construction – so that’s alright then ? Can’t be laid at the door of management, that sort of thing, can it ? The shareholders are kept happy with a 17% rise in fully year dividends. To cover itself for the future it is even reduced to blaming the politicians and a board of directors can not sink much lower than that. It is cautious about the future it says, because of the impact of current political uncertainty. That does not seem to be a worry or even a concern for other house builders and in any event politicians and the uncertainty they create have been with us since the dawn of time.

Dunelm Group DULM went ex growth in the year to 1st July with a fall of 0.5% in like for like revenue and profit before tax down by 28.3%, as it tried to cope with a challenging and subdued Homeware and Furniture Market. EBITDA fell by 7.8% and earnings per share  by 28% from 50.3p to 36.1p. The ordinary dividend is to be raised by 3.6%. Things improved with the start of the new financial year and sales growth in the first two months is described as being good. What exactly “good’ means in round figures is for some reason being kept a closely guarded secret.

Adv. Medical Solutions AMS continues to go from strength to strength as profit before tax for the six months to 30th June rose by 27% and the interim dividend is increased by 17%. Group revenues grew by 8% at constant currency rates with US revenue rising by 52% and sales of Liquiband strong in all its markets. the company is optimistic about future organic growth.

Surgical Innovations SUN produced strong growth in both revenue and profits in the half year to the 30th June.

The acquisition of Elemental Healthcare on the 1st August is regarded as being transformational for the company.

Weak Pound Is Not A Crutch For Weak Management

Experian EXPN produced revenue growth of 6% in the quarter to the 30th June. On an organic basis the growth was 4% and for business to business on an organic basis it was a sturdy 7%. But Experian is yet another company  producing appalling figures for the UK which suffers more and more from the devastation wreaked on the country by politicians who regard a weak currency as the greatest benefit they can give to the nation and deliberately pursue policies aimed at destroying the value of the pound. Revenue in the UK & Ireland fell by 13% during t he quarter and even at constant exchange rates there was a decline of 3%.

Royal Mail RMG CEO Moya Green believes that a 1% revenue rise in the three months to the 25th June can fairly be described as “another strong performance” in GLS. Total letter revenue fell by 4% but she remains silent as to whether that is weak or strong. Parcels did better with revenue up by 3% on volume up by 5%. Star performer was Royal Mail Tracked Services with growth of 39%.  Despite miserable figures in some areas, she claims that the overall trading performance for the quarter was good.

Dairy Crest DCG Volume sales for Dairy Crests four key brands in the quarter to 30th June are 7% ahead of last year, Cathedral City leading the way with a rise of 15%. There is a cloud on the horizon in the form of increased input costs, which have increased substantially for the butter business and led to a reduction in the promotion of Country Life in order to try and save money. Overall however trading for the quarter has been in line with expectations.

Ideagen plc IDEA is increasing its final dividend to 0.142p per share making a total increase for the year of 15%.

Flybe Full of Grumbles

Flybe FLYB The airline industry is in for a rough time if Flybe’s grumbles are anything to go by. On the other hand reading todays update for the quarter to the end of March does read a bit like a management clutching at straws. It claims to have suffered from airline overcapacity, coupled with weak demand in an uncertain consumer environment and price competition from railways. to counter these problems it has reduced its year on year seat capacity growth to 10%.  Passenger revenue rose by 9.8% compared to 13.5% for quarter 3. The fleet will be reduced by the return of all 6 end of lease aircraft in the second half of the financial year. Summer trading is in line with expectations.

Alliance Pharma APH The integration of 27 products acquired in December 2015 from Sinclair Pharma has been completed without a hitch, effectively doubling the size of APH. Confirmation is provided by the results fore the year to 31st December which saw revenue and EBITDA both grow by 102%, with pre tax profit following suite at 103%. The final dividend is increased by 10% making the total rise for the year, also 10%. APH’s philosophy, with its “can do” approach, is to become the rising star of European specialty pharma. The directors intend to maintain a progressive dividend policy.

TUI Ag TUI expects at least 10% growth in underlying EBITA  for the current financial year. Winter revenue rose by 9% and customer numbers were up by 5%, with 97% of the winter programme sold. 48% of the summer programme has been sold so far, with revenue also up by 9% and customers by 4%

Cello Is a Bowed String Instrument And Not A Fiddle

Alliance Pharma APH has more than doubled revenue and pre tax profits in the 6 months to the 30th June and is increasing the interim dividend by by 10%. Revenue rose by 104% including sales of ex Sinclair products whilst profit before tax rose by 113% and basic earnings per share by 25%. The share price has been showing some signs of strength since the end of June with a rise from 42p to 51p, approaching its previous all time high of 60p.

Advanced Medical Solutions AMS claims to be in robust health, with strong financial growth for the half year to 30th June. LiquiBand continues to perform strongly in the US, producing a rise in revenue of 83% and further gains in market share.The interim dividend is being increased by 20% after a rise in revenue of 20% and a 13% rise in profit before tax. revenue has been helped by currency fluctuations. The share price as grown almost without interruption from 55p at the start of 2013, to its present 227p.

Dunelm DNLM Put in a strong performance for the year to 27th June and continuing a record of ever increasing sales and profits over the last 10 years. The final dividend is to be increased by 19.1% bringing full year dividends to 25.1p, a rise of 16.7%, in addition to which there has been a special distribution of 31.5p per share.Profit before tax rose by 6.2%, basic earnings per share by 7.4% and revenues by 7.1%.

Galliford Try GFRD produced another set of record results for the year to 30th June, but being a housebuilder, that is expected. Profit before tax rose by 18% and the full year dividend payments are up by 21%. Linden Homes saw completions rise from 2769 to 3078 which I make out to be a rise of 11% but revenue was up by only 8%.  Housebuilders do not give discounts, not yet at least but did the odd incentive become necessary during the course of the year?

Cello CLL is increasing its interim dividend by 19% following a statutory loss of £0.8m and a statutory basic loss of 1.8p per share, for the 6 months to 30th June. Last year it made a first half profit of £1.9m so this year has seen quite a turn round. Obviously the board must have put its thinking cap on as to how to justify the dividend hike and  to do so it came up with a new formula.  As from now dividends will be equal to 40% of headline earnings per share, that being one of the few statistics showing a positive outcome, even if at  3.54p they were lower than last years 3.61p. Nice for the shareholders, anyway. And to make sure that no one is confused with the half year results, the company makes it clear that “Headline operating margin is defined as headline operating profit as a percentage of segmental gross profit“. Can’t get fairer than that, can it?
