Telegraph - Questor


Vimto maker’s bubble has been burst by rising input costs but it still holds long-term appeal

Questor share tip: supply chain overhaul at drinks company Nichols is expected to deliver margin and profit improvements in 2024 and beyond

Despite the impact of a war in Yemen, a key market, and the UK’s sugar tax, Nichols recorded a new peak in net profit of £26.5m in 2019, only for Covid, lockdowns, carbon dioxide shortages and then rising input costs to slightly burst its bubble.

One result of that is a paper loss since this column bought in January 2018, partly ameliorated by 161.5p a share in dividends (once last year’s 15.3p final payment arrives in May) and mainly this column’s fault for paying 20 times that peak earnings figure.

However, the latest results at the start of the month still show a double-digit return on capital employed and a net cash balance sheet, both of which are more than enough to keep us interested.

That said, shares in the maker of Vimto and Sunkist may not roar away, given management’s forecast of flat profits in 2023, as weakness in the domestic out-of-home market offsets strength overseas. But 2022’s £2m strategic review is leading to an overhaul of supply chains and the out-of-home business, which management believes will lead to margin and profit improvements in 2024 and beyond.

In the meantime, shareholders can take comfort from the balance sheet, collect their dividends – and wait. Nichols still has long-term appeal.

Questor says: hold

I think it's called a 'double bottom' , which is a good sign.

Results are very good. Weakness is due to a more challenging FY23, before improvements again in FY24 I suspect.

Would make a great acquisition for someone.

Hard to believe this was trading north of £18 in 2019. Half price now.

That would take a very large sum

What the market may want to see is a longer term growth plan clearly outlined.
