if you read Roland Hill's very recent article you might conclude it's a steady compounder with and excellent dividend record, long-term multi bagging share price, opportunity for growth in food distribution and consolidation among fuel suppliers. Though feeds is a low growth relatively low margin business.

Yes I'm invested in NWF and nursing a small loss.

I'm not a short term trader and don't interpret the charts or daily movements.

It seems to have decent numbers - 18% ROCE, 4% divi yield, P/E of about 9. Not exciting but fairly solid long term hold.

Solid if unexciting AGM Statement...


NWF Group plc: AGM Statement and Trading Update

At the Annual General Meeting of NWF Group plc ('NWF', the 'Company', or the 'Group'), the specialist distributor, which is being held later today, Philip Acton, Chair, will make the following statement:

"I am pleased to give shareholders the following update on trading for the first quarter of the financial year which commenced on 1 June 2023.

Overall trading in the first quarter, which is typically our quietest period of the year, has been in line with the Board's expectations.

Looking at each division in detail:

In Fuels, volumes increased year-on-year with the expected normalisation of margins reflecting the stable supply conditions as well as competitive pricing of diesel and gas oil, with demand for heating oil low over the summer. The price of Brent crude oil increased from $74 to $86 per barrel over the period. Following the acquisition in the period of Geoff Boorman Fuels, which expanded our coverage and customer base in the South-East, the Board continues to pursue acquisition opportunities in Fuels in line with our stated strategy.

The Food division traded in line with expectations and the comparative prior year period. Storage volumes reached a peak of just over 140,000 pallet spaces (capacity 135,000 pallet spaces) with the business efficiently utilising overflow storage facilities as planned. Outload and associated backhaul activity were higher than the prior year reflecting the high storage levels. The Group continues to investigate opportunities to support the increased customer demand for its services through the addition of a new warehouse.

In the Feeds division, volume and margin remained stable across the summer, relative to the first quarter of the prior year which saw very significant volatility in raw material and farmers input costs and consequently higher milk prices. The business has just welcomed its latest group of eight trainees to the NWF Academy to commence their structured programme to become future NWF nutritionists. The NWF Academy is now in its fifth year.

With the seasonally busier winter months to come, which are the most material to the Group's performance, the Board's outlook for the financial year remains unchanged. We remain confident in the Group's prospects and continue to target development opportunities supported by our strong balance sheet.

As is its established practice, the Group will provide a further trading update in December 2023, following the end of its half-year on 30 November.

The Group also announces that Dawn Moore has informed the Board that she does not wish to stand for re-election at the AGM and will step down from the Board effective immediately in order to focus on her executive responsibilities. The Board would like to thank Dawn for her contribution since joining the Group and wishes her well for the future.

A process to recruit a new non-executive director and Chair of the Remuneration Committee will now commence. Further updates will be made as this process progresses.

Solid enough announcement IMO

Acquisition of Geoff Boorman Fuels

NWF announces it has acquired the trade and assets of Geoff Boorman Fuels from Geoff Boorman Fuels LLP, which represents the second fuels acquisition in the last 12 months. This is in line with the Group's strategy to grow the fuels distribution business, in which the Group is the third largest player in the UK.

Geoff Boorman Fuels is a nineteen million litre fuel distributor based in Edenbridge, Kent with a largely domestic customer base. The acquisition complements Home Counties Fuels, the Group's Kent based commercial fuel distribution operation thereby supporting the Group's development in the South-East. The acquisition is expected to be accretive to underlying earnings of the Group, and the GBP2.6 million consideration has been paid in cash on completion from NWF's existing cash resources.

NWF's growth strategy is to both expand the geographic coverage of the fuels business within the UK and consolidate businesses adjacent to the existing depot network. NWF's acquisition of Sweetfuels Limited (announced on 22 December 2022) has been integrated as planned and is performing well.

Notice of final results for the year ended 31 May 2023

The Company will announce its final results for its financial year ended 31 May 2023 on Tuesday 1 August 2023.

Happy days :-)

NWF Group plc: Trading Update and Renewed Banking facilities

NWF Group plc ('NWF' the 'Company' or the 'Group'), the specialist distributor of fuel, food and feed across the UK, today provides a trading update for the year ended 31 May 2023 ("FY23"), together with details of its renewed banking facilities.

Trading update

As set out in the trading update of 9 March 2023, the Group delivered strong performances from all businesses in the first half. Pleasingly, this positive momentum has been sustained through the second half and consequently, FY23 headline profit before tax is now anticipated to be ahead of the current market expectation1 and in excess of £19.0 million2.

Net cash at the year-end is also higher than previous expectations as a result of the stronger trading result, ongoing disciplined cash management across the Group and some positive working capital movements.


· Volumes recovered in the second half as the team focused on increasing commercial business

· The Sweetfuels acquisition has been successfully integrated and is performing strongly

· The Board continues appraising earnings accretive acquisition opportunities in line with NWF's strategy of consolidating a fragmented UK Fuels market


· Demand has continued to be robust with storage close to capacity and increased outloads supported by improved operating efficiency


· Solid demand for ruminant feed and ancillary products across the year supported by a strong milk price with the business effectively managing commodity cost volatility and inflationary cost increases

Renewed Banking facilities

The Group has completed the renewal of its banking facilities with NatWest Group for a three year term on competitive rates, with an option to extend by two years. The facilities of £61 million comprise an invoice discounting facility of £50 million, a revolving credit facility of £10 million and an overdraft of £1 million, with a further £20 million accordion available to support the development strategy of the Group.

Richard Whiting, Chief Executive of NWF said:

"We have delivered a very strong result for the Group and it's great to report that all three divisions have performed ahead of expectations in spite of the inflationary and cost of living challenges. The Group is well positioned with a net cash position and new banking facilities to further develop and grow."

1. Company compiled consensus headline PBT of £17.5 million; information for investors including analyst consensus forecasts, can be found on the Group's website at

2. Stated before amortisation of acquired intangibles and the net finance cost of the Group's defined benefit scheme

Peel Hunt downgrades NWF as shares rallyPeel Hunt has downgraded NWF (NWF) after shares in the agricultural supplies distributor have rallied.Analyst Charles Hall downgraded his recommendation from 'buy' to 'hold' with a target price of 245p on the stock, which closed up 0.7% at 280p on Tuesday.'The shares have performed particularly well and are up 32% year-to-date,' he said.'As the share price has moved past our target price, we are moving our recommendation to "hold".'He said NWF should 'prove resilient in the economic downturn, given that the company operates in large, stable markets'. The next news from the company is likely to come from a trading update in early December.'We expect the company to report a good first half performance in all three divisions,' said Hall.'Margins in fuel have been helpful, which is more than offsetting a reduction in volumes. Food has traded ahead of expectations with storage capacity almost fully utilised and further improvements in operating efficiencies. Feed has continued to show good recovery as strong milk prices have helped to support price increases and thus margins.'Hall said the strong operating performance is 'translating into a healthy net cash position, which provides firepower for the company to deliver on its strategy to make infill acquisitions in the fuel segment'.
