Chairman's Statement

 

Results and Review

 

For the year ending 28th April 2018, profit before taxation increased to £4.04m (2017 - £1.53m) on revenue of £68.09m (2017 - £53.82m). Earnings per share amounted to 20.5p (2017 - 9.1p). Net cash was stable at £15.87m (2017 - £15.21m).

 

In last November's half year statement, reference was made to our Company's two fundamental strengths. First, our long established policy to constantly review our capabilities, and if necessary adjust and adapt. This serves us well by ensuring we are aligned to changing market conditions and demands. Second, our diversified operating structure can deliver significant advantages when trading conditions are varied across totally different sectors.

 

During the year, those two strengths have been clearly demonstrated and indeed amplified. The 'Defence' division has made a good start towards a recovery in revenue and certainly in profitably as a result of a buoyant export market, although the domestic market remains restrained and subdued. 'Forgings' increased revenue and is breaking even at the trading level while losses, incurred as a consequence of developing the new manufacturing facility in the United States, are again reduced.  'Petrol Station Superstructures' and 'Petrol Station Branding' divisions both traded in a significantly changing international market, though they are at quite differing phases within this process of change.

 

Export sales at 'Defence' accounted for the major component of the division's revenue, primarily in response to numerous new product offerings, the accumulating benefit of considerable investment in research and development over recent years and our success in demonstrating continually enhanced customer service and support. The domestic market, by comparison, has remained constrained by the UK's tight budget controls which result in inevitable delays to programmes and, in consequence, a market that lacks any reasonable element of clarity.

 

'Forgings' experienced a significant increase in revenue over the previous year, partly reflecting the first phase of full production from our new facility in the United States. Our plants in the UK and Brazil continue to hold good market positions, reflecting a total commitment to enhancing efficient production, product quality and customer service.

 

'Petrol Station Superstructures' experienced a check to its growth pattern owing to a notable change in the market it principally serves. Until relatively recently, many of the division's major customers had been global oil companies but they have accelerated the divestment of their company owned petrol filling station estates, with ownership passing to both large and small independent dealer/retailers. Accordingly, construction of new sites and the refurbishment and expansion of existing facilities are passing through a state of limbo as numerous sale and purchase transactions continue to dominate the attention of the sector's active participants.

 

'Petrol Station Branding' market, by comparison, is perceived to be further advanced in this process of transformation. When ownership of stations changes the incumbent fuel supplier may also be changed and that in turn initiates rebranding of the station. The operational performance of this division is adjusting to the changing market which was lead initially by Germany, then The Netherlands and is now happening in the UK.

 

Throughout the period, the Company has preserved its established high level of investment across the businesses. This is a multi-faceted approach.  A key feature is sustaining our creative and innovative product development programmes across the Group, which also results in us owning, unquestionably, the intellectual property rights of products we develop, particularly important in the defence sector. We also relentlessly strive to improve customer service and support and upgrade plant and equipment as appropriate to ensure we remain at the forefront of manufacturing capability and efficiency. No less important is our investment in personnel, particularly with regard to retaining and recruiting top quality engineers, commercial staff, plus national and international marketeers, together with focused training and development to enhance their potential.

 

Outlook

 

We perceive that, with a sustained measure of prudence, we are continuing to move the business forward on an upward trajectory and are well positioned to support and develop opportunities for the Group.

 

All matters considered the Board recommends the payment of a maintained final dividend of 6.5p per share making the total for the year of 8.25p (2017-8p). The final dividend is expected to be paid on 24th July 2018 to those shareholders on the register at the close of business on 22nd June 2018.

(c)

Factors affecting future tax change





 

The UK corporation tax rate will remain at 19% until it reduces to 17% in 2020.  At 28th April, 2018 the rate reductions to 17% had been enacted.  Deferred tax at 28th April, 2018 has therefore been provided at 17% or at a blended rate depending on when the underlying temporary differences are expected to unwind.  Deferred tax in relation to intangibles recognised on the acquisition of Petrol Sign bv has been provided at 25% being the main corporation tax rate in The Netherlands.

 Earnings per share












The calculation of basic earnings per share is based on:












(a)   Profit for the period attributable to equity holders of the parent of £3,386,000 (2017 - £1,498,000).








(b)   16,504,691 (2017 - 16,504,691) Ordinary shares, being the weighted average number of Ordinary shares in issue.








This represents 18,396,073 (2017 - 18,396,073) being the weighted average number of Ordinary shares in issue less 1,891,382 (2017 - less 1,891,382) being the weighted average number of shares both held within the ESOT 245,048 (2017 - 245,048) and purchased by the Company 1,646,334 (2017 - 1,646,334).
