22-Feb-2018 – 351p – £482.3m – PER 7.98

Q3 Trading Update – A load of waffle usually means there’s some bad news towards the end. It seems “FY18 PBT is expected to be c.25% lower than the £75.0 million reported in FY17”.

This one just popped onto my radar for the first time and – It’s going straight on the Avoid list for now.

25-Jun-2019 – 322p – £429m – PER 8.1

Results For The 12 Months To End April 2019 – Revenue up 6.2% (£745.5m), Adjusted PBT up 7.2% and EPS up 11.2% with the Dividend up 3.4%.

Remains on my Avoid list – Net Debt is just way too big at 100% of Market Cap and almost 8x PBT.
