Ian Pollard – Footasylum #FOOT impacted

Finsbury Food Group FIF has acquired 100% of the share capital of Ultrapharm Limited a specialist Free From bakery manufacturer with site in the UK & Poland. Finsbury claims that the acquisition  supports the Group’s ongoing strategy to further diversify its product capability into high growth areas.

Tax Systems plc TAX enjoyed a strong first half with revenue growth of 14% for the six months to the 30th June.EBITDA for the half year grew by 9% and order intake by 22%.

Footasylum FOOT expects growth for the full year to be significantly lower than previous guidance with adjusted EBITDA down to less than half  that for full year 2018. Revenue for the six months  to the 25th August  is expected to show a rise of 18.5% with online revenue in particular up by 28.5%. Trading has however, been impacted by weak consumer sentiment and more challenging conditions in July and August. Delays in store openings and upgrades.have also exacerbated the situation.

Biome Technologies BIOM delivered an exceptional start to the year and an outstanding first half enabled it to deliver a small operating profit of £0.2m. in the six months to the 30th June compared to last years loss of £0.2m. Group revenue for the half increased by 47% to £4.4m.

Ian Pollard – Reckitt Benckiser #RB – Egg on face & seeking wriggle room

Reckitt Benckiser RB is left wiping  egg off its face as it abandons its proposal to acquire part of Pfizers Consumer Health Care business. The CEO finds himself squirming with some embarrassment as he tries to wriggle his way out of a situation which he seems to admit they should not have got into in the first place.  He says that RB only believes in organic growth but fails to explain as to why on earth they then went and got themselves involved in a proposed acquisition, Then he goes on to admit that in the end the proposal to acquire part only of the business, became impossible and again offers no explanation as to why they went for the impossible without realising that it would be impossible.

Crest Nicholson CRST updates that the trading environment continues to be generally robust with demand for new houses  continuing to be strong. Deference is paid to the government for its role in supporting the housing market to such an extent that in great swathes of the country, homes have become so expensive as to be unaffordable except for the wealthy despite price inflation having moderated.

Ted Baker plc TED reports another year of continued progress and success as profit before tax for the year to the 27th January produced a rise of 12.3% in profit before tax. Revenue grew by 11.4% and basic earnings per share by 12.6%. It is proposed to increase the final dividend to 43.5p. per share bringing the total for the year to 60.1p., a rise of 12%

Sanne Group plc SNN Group revenue for the year to 31st December rose by 77% and profit before tax by 49%. The final dividend is recommended for an increase to 8.4p per share, bringing the total for the year to 12.6p compared to 9.6p for 2016

Safestyle UK plc SFE found its market becoming increasingly challenging as 2017 progressed. Its financial performance was impacted as raw material prices increased at the same time as finance subsidy costs and lead generation costs. Profit before tax for the year to the 31st December fell by 28.5% and basic earnings per share by 31.1%. The final dividend remains unchanged at 11.25p per share. Market share grew by over 10% during the year but perhaps this is a classic case of increasing market share irrespective of profitability. 2018 has not brought any improvement and the year has got off to a difficult start. Order intake is below management expectations as the company’s market continues to deteriorate, whilst competition increases and consumer confidence continues to fall.

Ian Pollard – ITV – 7% Organic Growth, Excluding Currency!

ITV PLC ITV If you can bother to fight your way through the meaningless jargon with which the preliminary 2017 results are littered you may end up with an idea that Carolyn McCall and her team are very pleased with themselves. They should be because one of their star achievements has been to produce 7%  organic growth excluding currency. Not many companies can manage that. For the future they are excited that they have a strategic refresh underway and not only that, they are very focused on it. The main headline is that they produced a strong operational performance which included such successes as falls of 10% in statutory profit before tax,  9% in statutory earnings per share, 6% in adjusted earnings per share and 5% in adjusted EBITDA. External revenue did show a rise of 2% driven by double digit growth in non NAR. Revenue for ITV studios rose by 13%. Family SOV was up by 2% and online viewing continued to grow strongly with a rise of 39%. All this was achieved despite the impact of an uncertain economic environment. The board has decided not to pay a special dividend because there have been five and also because the dividend is now more normal. Make what you like of that, Presumably they know what they mean. The final dividend , presumably the “more normal” one, is to be 5.28p, leading to a full year dividend increase of 8% to 7.8p per share.

Informa plc INF The year to the 31st December  saw growth in all four divisions leading to a 30.7% rise in revenue. The adjusted profit before tax rose by 29.4% and the final dividend is to be increased by 6%.


Taylor Wimpey TW 2017 was another strong year with revenue up by 7.9% and profit before tax rising by 10.7% profit for the year. Basic earnings per share fell by 6.1% and he average selling pice was increased by 3.5%. A good start has been made to 2018 and he order book is strong.

Safestyle plc SFE The Board’s worries for 2018 which were explained in detail in December have now been exacerbated by the impact of what it describes as an aggressive new entrant into the market. Order intake for 2018 has been disappointing and below its expectations. Group revenue and underlying profit before tax will now be materially below both 2017 and current market expectations.

Paddy Power Betfair PPB  did not have a happy fourth quarter. Firstly it got its odds wrong on the US presidential elections and Trumps victory cost it almost £5m. On top of that its European sportsbook lost money on football bets in December and far too many customer friendly results reduced group revenue by some £40m. Adverse sports results reduced online gaming revenue by 3%, despite a 15% rise in sportsbook stakes. Australia helped to save the day with a rise of 25% in the stakebook and 18% in revenue. The year as a whole however still showed healthy growth.

Thalassa Holdings THAL has doubts that the global recovery is convincing and  believes that it is far weaker than meets the eye because there is no sign of it being matched by rising employment in the major industrialised countries.

A new stock buy back programme will be introduced when the present scheme comes to an end. As for the outlook for 2017, Thalassa is cautiously optimistic
