Market cap: £40m
Debt-adjusted p/e: 9
Dewhurst manufactures a wide range of components and systems used in lifts, cash machines, railway carriages and traffic management, and earns more than two-thirds of its revenue and profit abroad. The group traces its success back to the launch of the US81 Original Pushbutton in 1971.
The design of the stainless steel button with a chrome surround has been aped by other manufacturers, but perhaps not its quality – which means that although the major elevator companies use cheaper pushbuttons in new lifts, architects and lift consultants often choose Dewhurst for refurbishment projects. The pushbutton is a fairly low-cost component, and it’s worth paying more if it reduces the maintenance bill.
In the six months to end-March, Dewhurst revealed that profit had fallen by 25% year-on-year due to reduced spending on public- and private-sector infrastructure projects, and lower keypad orders. Also, about a fifth of the company’s revenue comes from keypads for NCR cash machines. Dewhurst’s dependence on this customer means that shareholders have become used to an element of volatility in its results. Dewhurst is also having to adapt to a longer-term technological challenge.
To accommodate large crowds, busy hotels and offices are turning to “destination dispatch” systems. People choose their destination using a keypad, touch screen, or room key and are directed to a lift going to their floor. These systems generally require fewer push buttons.
However, Dewhurst has responded to its changing market by developing the components required by the new systems, such as the hall lanterns that indicate which lift to go to. It also assembles entire control panels, buying in components such as touchscreens that it cannot make itself.
Although this means that Dewhurst must share some of the profit with the manufacturers of the underlying components, the company remains highly profitable under the majority ownership of the Dewhurst family. Brothers Richard and David have been running it since the mid-1980s, overseeing a measured expansion. Be aware that the company is quite tightly held, so the spread (the gap between the buying and selling price) can be quite wide.|
