Balfour Beatty to beat expectations By Jonas Crosland – Investors Chronicle Shares in Balfour Beatty (BBY) rose by as much as 5 per cent in a falling market after the construction group revealed that group performance for 2018 will be above earlier expectations. The improvement comes as a result of profits from infrastructure investments reaching around £65m. Crucially, the group remains on track to complete the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) before the end of December without any increased costs. This augurs well for the construction specialist’s performance in 2019, with investors and customers alike taking a longer look at group balance sheets in the wake of Carillion’s collapse. Balfour has been working to assuage any potential worries, paying down all its remaining convertible bonds and delivering a 45 per cent reduction in gross debt over the last 12 months. Average monthly net cash flow is now expected to around £185m, ahead of the previous guidance range of between £140m and £170m. Margins on UK construction are expected to reach up to 3 per cent, which is impressive given the first half disruption caused by the AWPR project. The group continues to remain selective in winning work that meets its margin requirements and has still managed to increase the forecast year-end order book to £12bn, up from £11.4bn a year earlier. On the support services side, the utilities side is being restructured with a view to reducing costs, while the road maintenance side continues to outperform. IC View: Balfour Beatty has sensibly taken steps to strengthen its balance sheet while remaining selective on the work it takes on. At 257p, the shares are trading on an undemanding 11 times forecast earnings. Buy.

Great update yes dekle but not a good time to be buying construction shares IMO. Marshalls had a good update this week, reporting better than expectations but have fallen since.

Welcome folks. Kier pay their final dividend next week at a cost of over 40 million. Shareholders are effectively funding the payout partly through a deeply discounted RI. It's an utter farce, and that's being polite.

On a day when IC recommended BBY as a buy the share price fell. Bizarre! Seems to be unloved by PI's since, apart from my comment, no posts here since February. Carillion has helped them achieve better prices for new work and although sales down profits were up. Soon the expensive money will be out, the legacy contracts out and a much better looking BS.

Market weak & BBY falling amidst all the outsourcing scares. Now back to 272p and could quite possibly make it all the way back to the frequent support level @ 260p. I will certainly be tempted should they do so!

A short but sweet full-year update from Balfour Beatty (BALF) has reinforced Numis' view that the infrastructure group offers strong recovery potential.While the update declared the group was trading in line with expectations, analyst Howard Seymour took heart from the positive tone.'Body language about confidence to attain industry standard margins and further increase balance sheet strength are both important – and further illustrates why share price weakness on the back of Carillion's woes is illogical,' he said.'We retain the view that Balfour has the strongest recovery potential in the sector couples with balance sheet strength, which makes it a key pick on a recovery basis in the construction sector in the coming year.'Seymour rates the shares a 'buy' on a 350p target price.

Balfour Beatty issues reassuring trading update. "The group continues to win new business... at rates which reflect the bidding discipline and risk management introduced under Build to Last."
