Titon Holdings Plc

Preliminary Announcement for the year ended 30 September 2016

 

Keith Ritchie, Chairman of Titon, said:

"I am delighted to report that for the fourth consecutive year Titon has delivered an improved set of results with profit before tax 14% higher year-on-year at £2.14 million on revenue up 6%. Earnings per share also increased significantly (+21%) and the dividend is to be raised 17%, which marks the fourth year of consecutive gains.

In the first two months of the new financial year, UK and continental European sales are above the corresponding period of 12 months ago. We also anticipate that fiscal 2017 sales will rise in South Korea, where Titon is the market leader in natural ventilation.

We are mindful of the uncertainty created by the UK's decision to leave the EU which makes both economic and corporate forecasting more difficult than usual. To date, however, there has been little impact on our business and we remain optimistic that satisfactory exit terms can be negotiated.

We have first class products, an international spread, very good people and a strong balance sheet and we will continue to look for new opportunities within the ventilation and window and door industries. I look forward to another year of progress".

Chairman's statement

Profit and loss account

In the year ended 30 September 2016, Titon's net revenue (which excludes inter-segment activity) rose 6.3% to £23.7 million. On a constant currency basis, however, the increase is 4.4%.

The gross margin rose marginally from 29.2% to 29.7% and EBITDA was struck at £2.33 million (2015: £2.13 million). Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) or operating profit rose 13% to £1.77 million with operating margins at 7.5% (2015: 7.0%).

Net interest contributed £8,000 (2015: £9,000) while the share of profits from the Group's associate rose 19.5% to £356,000 (2015: £298,000) resulting in profit before tax of £2.14 million which was an increase of 14% year-on-year (2015: £1.87 million). The weakness of the British Pound added £58,000 to profit before tax, which means that on a constant basis, it would have been £2.08 million or 11% higher year-on-year.

Earnings per share for the year increased 21% to 15.2 pence (2015: 12.6 pence). Taxation was little changed at 9% but the non-controlling interests' debit declined from £376,000 to £317,000.

The Directors are proposing a final dividend of 2.25 pence per share (2015: 1.75p). This, when added to the interim dividend paid on 24 June 2016 would make a total for the year of 3.50 pence (2015: 3.0p) which would be a 17% rise.  If approved by shareholders at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting on 15 February 2017, the dividend will be payable on 21 February 2017 to shareholders on the register on 27 January 2017.  The ex-dividend date is 26 January 2017.

Balance sheet and cash flow

Net assets including minorities rose £2.68 million to £14.77 million with net cash at £2.44 million (£2015: £2.87 million) which is equivalent to 16.5% of net assets (2015: 23.7%). There was a net cash outflow in the year of £432,000 (2015: inflow of £721,000) which was caused primarily by higher receivables in Titon Korea and higher capital expenditure. Total capital expenditure in the year was £721,000 (2015: £498,000)

Net current assets were £9.04 million (2015: £7.39 million).

ROCE* was 15.1% (2015: 18.2).

*ROCE is calculated by dividing EBIT by the sum of shareholders' funds, non-controlling interests and all debt less intangible assets and cash

Preliminary Announcement for the year ended 30 September 2016

Chairman's statement (continued)

Segment analysis

Revenue derived from the UK business saw an increase of 7% in fiscal 2016. This included our Ventilation Systems business for mechanical ventilation products which saw sales rise 21% year-on-year, with exports doing particularly well. The latter reflects a continued targeting of and investment in new markets. The UK gains were also driven by an improving product range and a better domestic sales performance i.e. we have concentrated a higher proportion of resources on the economically more active areas of the UK.

Specifically, the Ventilation Systems business also now includes a horizontal heat recovery product and the new Trimbox NO2 filter product. The latter is designed to be used with a whole house-ventilation system and can remove up to 95% of harmful Nitrogen Dioxide emissions as well as a number of other noxious gases which frequent urban areas. Given the poor levels of outdoor air quality in the major conurbations in the UK, we believe that this product will prove to be a very useful addition to our product range in the future. The Trimbox NO2 filter unit was also a winner in the Housebuilder Product Awards 2016.

The Group has also continued to promote the benefits of good indoor air quality in the UK through our trade association, BEAMA (British Electrotechnical and Allied Manufacturers Association). The aim of this campaign is to promote the use of mechanical ventilation products in the home to improve air quality. Given an increasing number of reports about poor levels of both outdoor and indoor air quality in the UK, we firmly believe that this is an area of our business which will grow in the future. A new All Party Parliamentary Group has also recently been formed to debate healthy homes and buildings and we will contribute to this new forum.

Results for our UK Hardware business were mixed. We saw an increase in sales to the Aluminium sector but a fall in door and window products to the Timber/PVCu segment of the market, both against 2015. There has also been a slower rate of growth in private housebuilding year-on-year while public sector housebuilding continues to fall. At the same time, there was only a marginal increase in private and public sector repair, maintenance and improvement (RMI) expenditure in 2016. We had also anticipated increased sale volumes from a number of new hardware products which were introduced in January 2016, but to date these have underperformed expectations.

In South Korea, our subsidiary company Titon Korea (51% owned) manufactures passive ventilation products, and is the national market leader, but it had a more demanding year in 2016. Revenue dipped marginally, due to reduced demand in the public sector and increased competition. This was only partly offset by private sector demand and meant that Titon Korea's contribution was 17% lower as a result of higher costs incurred. However, in 2017 sales are expected to rise.

Meantime, the Group's associate, Browntech Sales Co. Limited ("BTS") generated a higher contribution in the year; and this can be tracked in the Associate line of the profit and loss account where it is the sole contributor. The Associate contribution rose 20% in 2016 to £356,000 (2015: £298,000). BTS distributes ventilation products in South Korea and invests in and develops schemes in the domestic residential real estate market. Two are active at this time, one in Seoul which is currently being marketed and sold out whilst the other, in the form of a secured loan, is expected to be repaid early in calendar 2017. BTS may also make further investments in the South Korean residential market as opportunities arise.

In combination, subsidiary and associate, South Korea is the largest single contributor to the Group's profit after tax and this was virtually unchanged year-on-year at £667,000 (2015: £672,000).

Finally, sales in the US continued to grow and Titon Inc. had another profitable year. However, the market for natural ventilation products remains relatively modest in scale at this time and geographically focused on the North East and the North West regions.

Board

I am delighted to welcome Kevin Sargeant to the Titon Board following his appointment as a Non-Executive Director on 1 September 2016. Kevin brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of the ventilation industry and we look forward to his contribution to the Group in the future. I also welcome Tony Gearey to the Board as an Executive Director following his appointment on 2 November 2016. Tony has been with Titon for over 30 years and is responsible for IT and Titon Inc.

Preliminary Announcement for the year ended 30 September 2016

Chairman's statement (continued)

 

Employees

The number of people employed within the Group has risen from 219 at the beginning of the year to 237 at 30 September 2016. Most of these new individuals are in the UK, where we have employed a team of ten as part of a new ducting fabrication business taken on during the year. We also introduced the National Living Wage in April 2016 which benefited a number of our weekly paid employees. However, we will continue to seek improvements in productivity to offset the additional cost. Here, too, I would like to thank all of our employees for their hard work during the year and the huge contribution they make to the success of the Group.

New Head Office

Since 1984, the Group had been headquartered at International House in Stanway which is west of Colchester in Essex, East of England.  However, due to its age and lack of amenities, the building no longer proved to be efficient or practical and from early September, we have been located in the Colchester Business Park. This has proved both more efficient and popular. The move was also achieved without any disruption to our business.

Investors

As noted in the Interim Report we appointed Hardman & Co. to write research on Titon and to introduce us to a range of institutional and high net worth investors. This has been a valuable experience and we will continue to work with Hardman to further raise our profile.

Outlook

In the first two months of the new financial year, UK and continental European sales are above the corresponding period of 12 months ago. We also anticipate that our fiscal 2017 sales will rise in South Korea, where Titon is the market leader in natural ventilation. We will continue to monitor the current political situation in Korea but don't anticipate major disruption to the economy.

We are mindful of the uncertainty created by the UK's decision to leave the EU which makes both economic and corporate forecasting more difficult than usual. To date, however, there has been little impact on our business and we remain optimistic that satisfactory exit terms can be negotiated.

We have first class products, an international spread, very good people and a strong balance sheet and we will continue to look for new opportunities within our target markets. I look forward to another year of progress.

On behalf of the Board.

3     Revenue and segmental information

In identifying its operating segments, management generally follows the Group's reporting lines, which represent the main geographic markets in which the Group operates. The segment reporting below is shown in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the Board, which is the Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM). These operating segments are monitored and strategic decisions are made on the basis of segment operating results.  The Group operates four main business segments which are:

Segment

Activities undertaken include:

United Kingdom

Sales of passive and powered ventilation products to house builders, electrical contractors and window and door manufacturers. In addition to this, it is a leading supplier of window and door hardware.

South Korea

 

North America

 

Sales of passive ventilation products to construction companies.

 

Sales of passive ventilation products to window manufacturers.

All other countries

Sales of passive and powered ventilation products to distributors, window manufacturers and construction companies

 

Inter-segment revenue is transacted on an arm's length basis and charged at prevailing market prices for a specific product and market or cost plus where no direct comparative market price is available.  Segment results include items directly attributable to a segment as well as those that can be allocated on a reasonable basis.  Research and development entity-wide financial expenses are allocated to the business activities for which R&D is specifically performed. Sales Administration and Other Expenses are currently allocated to operating segments in the Group's reporting to the CODM. Other Expenses include mainly central and parent company overheads relating to group management, the finance function and regulatory requirements.

The measurement policies the Group uses for segment reporting under IFRS 8 are the same as those used in its financial statements.

The total assets for the segments represent the consolidated total assets attributable to these reporting segments. Parent company results and consolidation adjustments reconciling the segmental results and total assets to the consolidated financial statements, are included within the United Kingdom segment figures stated over page.
