I'm holding on to this. It's certainly not going to drop anytime soon. Anyone else in?

virtuous circle is not an epithet I would attribute business performing well no doubt

Hi Phillis, The attraction here is they have a virtuous circle going of growing revenues and increasing margins in safety regulation driven markets. So they don't look cheap but then quality growing companies seldom are.

indeed I always look a little closer at the "exceptionals" when looking at acquisitive businesses. That is where all the mistakes are squirreled away They are real costs in running such businesses Underlying eps means realively little in this context Even expensive at 31p for six months

Great results "Key points: · Continued strong trading, +6% organic underlying revenue growth; underlying operating margin +170bps to 13.0% · Over 80% of underlying revenue and 90% of underlying operating profit generated from UK and US operations, where infrastructure investment outlook remains favourable · Underlying operating profit up 25% driven by growth in UK and US operations · Five infrastructure acquisitions completed, non-US Pipe Supports restructuring on plan, in line with strategy of active portfolio management to drive returns · Strong cash generation supporting continued investment in acquisitions and organic growth · Interim dividend increased by 20% to 8.5p Derek Muir, Chief Executive, said: "These results represent an excellent performance, with record revenue and profitability and improved underlying operating margins across all three divisions. We continue to benefit from our strong position in niche infrastructure markets, predominantly in the UK and US, where high levels of investment are fuelling demand for our products. "In the UK, the Government's Road Investment Strategy provides certainty of funding through to 2020/21 and, in addition, exciting progress is now being made in our Roads business in the US and Australia. In Utilities also, our UK and US activities are well placed to continue to benefit from the significant investment in the ageing infrastructure of those countries. In Galvanizing, notwithstanding strong comparatives in the second half, our US and UK operations are expected to more than offset any weakness in France. "Overall, although risks remain, 2016 is expected to be a year of good progress."

Anyone seen anything specific to account for the current enthusiasm? I'm assuming it's just the penny dropping re $USD translation benefit but it seems a bit sudden?

A very well managed business. There are lots of infrastructure renewal and build opportunities in both the UK and USA where the company can supply products required for the jobs. If they price correctly they can continue to progress. I have every confidence that is the case.
