“#LUCE simmering for a breakout. Numis recent note "H2 23 gross margin of 39.4%, representing the strongest margin delivery in three years, leading to an H2 23 adj. EBIT margin of 12.2%" When I extrapolate this, it looks like it will say it is trading ahead of expectations soon”

A bit off topic, although LUCE is a 5% investor in Eenergy Group (EAAS) and mentions the positive prospects of company in today's results, I suggest EAAS is a company that definitely deserves consideration for long term growth investors. It is a small company with the world ahead of it and with its recent £25M inflow of funds and tie up with NatWest Bank, I see this multi-bagging over the next few years.

Do your own research but I think you will like what you see.

Doubt it. Halfords deals with the public, LUCE is commercial. But what do I know, LOL.

What do holders here think about the impact on LUCE of fluorescent lamp phase outs under ROHS compliance will be?


The key part is that they will no longer be manufactured but you can still buy them while stocks last.

So vendors will have done last time buys ahead of those last time builds. But anything going through at the moment will need to be newer LED types.

Looks positive to me. Any other views?

This is better LUCE...absolutely glorious news on inflation. Great for everyone holding stocks! fingers crossed that this is a beginning of a nice bear market.

Tiddler LPA going well, might be a read across to LUCE

XPP is quite a sad story really, but the recent additional bad news for them is related to industrial demand from China and then an ensuing covenant breach. I am not sure that those issues translate well to here?

LUCE is more about demand from RMI, housing, EV charging, construction etc. and definitely not any of those Asian woes or debt issues. Sentiment of course is a funny thing so Mr Market can react differently to Mr Logic. (I try to be the latter but like all of us I am not always succesful at this).

Trading Update

-- The Group traded in line with expectations in Q1 2023, with the slower residential RMI market seen in the second half of 2022 continuing in Q1 2023. The comparatives get easier as the year progresses.

-- Q1 2023 revenue at £48m is 5% lower than Q1 2022, 9% lower on a like-for-like basis.

-- The stronger gross margin we experienced in the second half of 2022 of above 38% has continued into the first quarter of 2023.

-- The current activity levels across the Group are in line with our expectations. Customer destocking was broadly in line with our expectations for Q1 2023 and we continue to estimate that customers only need to reduce their inventory levels by a total of c.£5m in 2023 to achieve their current targeted inventory cover.

Balance Sheet and Dividend

-- Our covenant net debt ratio of 0.9x remains below our target range of 1-2x EBITDA.

-- The Group has significant facilities available for future investment both organically and through M&A.

-- The Board is proposing to pay a final dividend of 3.0p, subject to approval at the AGM today. This final dividend takes the full-year dividend to 4.6p representing a payout of 41% of 2022 earnings and 100% increase on 2019.

-- The final dividend will be paid on 19 May 2023 to shareholders on the register on 11 April 2023.


-- Trading in the first quarter of 2023 has been in line with our expectations.

-- Macroeconomic conditions remain difficult to judge, with leading indicators continuing to suggest residential RMI markets will remain challenging.

-- The tailwind from slowing cost inflation outlined at the full year 2022 results continues and should show benefits later in the year, once it has worked its way through our inventory.

-- Non-residential project demand has also continued its favourable trend.

Commenting on the results, Chief Executive Officer, John Hornby said: "We continued to trade in line with expectations in the first quarter of the year and are encouraged that our business performance is beginning to gain momentum. We are optimistic for the remainder of 2023, whilst maintaining an element of caution recognising that macroeconomic conditions remain difficult to judge. We are excited by a number of product developments which provide us with medium and long-term opportunities to grow the business."
