Compass's Current Momentum Likely to Bring Mid-Term Goals Closer

1156 GMT - Compass Group's fiscal 2023 earnings are expected to be driven by continued momentum and robust net gains after the group reported a robust performance for the previous year, Shore Capital analyst Greg Johnson says in a note. The U.K. catering contractor is likely to also report further price and like-for-like sales recovery after profitability returned to prepandemic levels in the second half of fiscal 2022, Johnson says. "We previously set out a blue-sky scenario for revenues to build beyond GBP35 billion in the medium term," Johnson says. "Given the current momentum we now see this as more of a forecast than a pipe dream." (michael.susin@wsj.com)

Compass lifts dividend as profits and revenues grow strongly

The company highlighted "excellent" net new business of 7.5%, while client retention rates improved to a record 96.4%, up 100 basis points on 2021


Catering company Compass Group PLC (LSE:CPG) rewarded shareholders with a 125% increase in its full-year dividend and launched a further £250mln share buy-back as it reported strong growth in profits and revenues.

In the year to 30 September 2022, underlying operating profit grew 87.5% to £1.59bn, on revenue of £25.8bn, up 37.5% on the previous year.

The company highlighted "excellent" net new business of 7.5%, while client retention rates improved to a record 96.4%, up 100 basis points (bps) on 2021.

Underlying operating margins improved by 170bps in the year to 6.2% and are expected to rise in full-year 2023 to 6.5%.

For 2023, Compass forecast constant-currency underlying operating profit growth of over 20%, delivered through organic revenue growth of around 15%, weighted towards the first half of the year.

The group, which has completed an initial £500mln share buyback, also announced a further £250mln buyback, to be completed in the first half of 2023.

Chief executive Dominic Blakemore said: "The group's performance surpassed our expectations both in terms of net new business growth and base volume recovery, with Business & Industry now operating above its pre-pandemic revenues.”

"Looking further ahead, we remain excited about the significant structural growth opportunities globally, leading to the potential for revenue and profit growth above historical rates, returning margin to pre-pandemic levels and rewarding shareholders with further returns."

Compass Group Fiscal Year 2022 Pretax Profit Rose on Sector Reopening, To Buy Back GBP250 Million
11/21/2022 | 07:42am GMT


By Michael Susin

Compass Group PLC reported on Monday a better-than-expected pretax profit increase for fiscal 2022 driven by a robust recovery on volumes and new business growth amid lower costs, and announced a further capital return to shareholders as it expects further growth in fiscal 2023.

The U.K. catering contractor said it will launch a further share buyback program of up to 250 million pounds ($297.2 million) in the first half of fiscal 2023, bringing the total return program to GBP750 million.

The board has also declared a dividend of 31.5 pence a share, compared with 14 pence a share in fiscal 2021.

The company made a pretax profit of GBP1.47 billion for the year ended Sept. 30 from GBP464 million reported in fiscal 2021. This compares with a consensus forecast of GBP1.32 billion taken from FactSet and based on seven analysts estimations.

Revenue rose 42.5% to GBP25.5 billion from GBP17.91 billion a year earlier, reflecting the reopening of sectors and improved client retention. Underlying operating margin was 5.9% compared with 4.5% the previous period.

"The group's performance surpassed our expectations both in terms of net new business growth and base volume recovery, with Business & Industry now operating above its pre-pandemic revenues. The strong growth trends seen in the first half have continued, with net new business accelerating through the year in all our regions," Chief Executive Dominic Blakemore said.

"Our clients are continuing to face operational complexities and inflationary pressures, which are driving increased outsourcing, and we are successfully capitalizing on the resulting growth opportunities," Mr. Blakemore added.

The company said it expects underlying operating profit growth for fiscal 2023 to be above 20%, to be delivered through organic revenue growth of around 15%, and underlying operating margin above 6.5%.

Summary and outlook

The Group is exiting the pandemic strongly and has achieved the important milestone of revenue exceeding its pre-COVID level on a run rate basis. Organic growth was strong in the first half of the year as the Group benefited from like for like volume recovery, high levels of net new business and pricing. Underlying operating margin was in line with guidance and is expected to improve in the second half.

While there are global inflationary pressures, which are expected to increase and continue at a heightened level, we have a resilient business model to help mitigate this challenge. This environment is also leading to an acceleration in first time outsourcing as organisations seek cost savings. We have a clear strategy to capture this growth opportunity based on our scale, expertise and sectorised market approach. Our value creation model has proven very effective and remains unchanged. The Group's market leading position combined with a relevant offer and capability are resulting in record new business wins and our highest ever client retention rate.

Given our strong first half performance and positive outlook, we are increasing our full year organic revenue growth guidance from 20 - 25% to around 30%. Whilst we are cautious about the inflationary environment, our margin guidance remains unchanged, with full year underlying operating margin expected to be over 6%, exiting the year at around 7%.

Our disciplined capital allocation framework supports growth whilst ensuring a robust balance sheet, rewarding shareholders through dividends and additional shareholder returns. This is demonstrated through the 9.4 pence per share interim dividend and the share buyback programme announced today with up to GBP500m during this calendar year.

Looking further ahead, we remain excited about the significant structural growth opportunities globally, leading to the potential for revenue and profit growth above historical rates, returning margin to pre-pandemic levels and rewarding shareholders with further returns.
