Hill and Smith plc posted healthy FY results for the year ended 31st December this morning. Revenues were up 13% to £829.8m, underlying PBT was up 27% to £111.9m and statutory EPS was up 29% to 86p. A final dividend of 28p was proposed, up 27% on the year, making a total dividend of 43p. The balance sheet remains solid with covenant leverage at 0.4x EBITDA allowing plenty more scope for organic and acquisitive expansion. Indeed, there has been more positive momentum on M&A in 2024 year to date with a further £11.6m investment across two acquisitions completed and the M&A pipeline is healthy. Valuation is no longer cheap with forward PE ratio at 17.1x, but the share price remains in an 18-month uptrend. BUY...

Peel Hunt: Hill & Smith a good US infrastructure play

Peel Hunt analyst Henry Carver believes manufacturer Hill & Smith (HILS) is one of the best ways for investors to play the wave of US infrastructure investment.

He said the group’s ‘strong’ first half showed revenues grew 20%, with strong momentum continuing in the US businesses, which accounted for 73% of underlying profit, while those in the UK were resilient against tough competition.

Management guided to 2023 operating profits coming in ahead of expectations, which Carver took to mean £4m more than Peel Hunt’s estimated £112.5m with a similar flow through to 2024.

‘We also see plenty of scope for further M&A – we understand there is an active pipeline and management has plenty of firepower to work with,’ he said. ‘Cash conversion in the first half was a useful 87%, and net debt-to-ebitda at the half year is sitting at 0.7 times, below a stated target of between one and two times.’

With the shares trading at 15 times earnings, and good prospects for the rest of the year, he reiterated his ‘buy’ recommendation with a price target of £16.80.

Shore Capital cuts Hill & Smith after strong run

Shore Capital has downgraded Hill & Smith (HILS) as the shares in the specialist barrier manufacturer look ‘fairly valued after a good run’.

Analyst Tom Fraine downgraded his recommendation from ‘buy’ to ‘hold’. Shares fell 6.7%, or 94p, to £13.20 on Wednesday following a 14% increase in both revenue and profit for 2022.

Fraine forecast an operating profit of £105m for this year but said it was ‘very conservative’ and he sees ‘scope for upgrades’.

‘We believe the company is well placed to navigate through adverse macroeconomic conditions, with close to half of its sales driven by public sector spending,’ he said.

‘The shares trade on 16 times our upgraded full-year 2023 earnings per share forecasts… and now appear to be fairly valued. We downgrade our recommendation…; following a strong recent share price performance, and see more upside for [infrastructure services provider] Renew (RNWH), which is considerably cheaper despite generating higher returns on invested capital, higher historic earnings growth, and having a lower risk profile.’
