Full-year results to 31 March came in slightly ahead of previously upgraded forecasts, a good result during a pandemic year. The acquisitions of Willow and Active Silicon provide technology in key growth areas, with margin and cross selling opportunities. Macro supply chain issues may peg back delivery on a strong order book and recovering demand, with prices being passed through to customers. We increase trading forecasts slightly given uncertainties, with a tax benefit this year resulting in E

This morning, the group has released a trading update pointing to the fact that profitability in the year to 31 March 2021 is now expected to be ahead of recently upwardly revised expectations.

The group’s trading update points to a strong end to the year, exceeding recently upgraded forecasts. March saw some orders pulled forward as customers mitigated supply chain challenges evident (freight and logistics issues, semiconductor shortages). We therefore upgrade FY21 adjusted EPS by 7.6%, keeping FY22 unchanged. Our price target also increases, in line with the EPS upgrade from 950p to 1020p, offering good upside to the current FY22 P/E rating of 15.2x. This is an encouraging update, co

Results for H1 FY22 reflect a consolidation of significant market share gains achieved over the past two years with Group revenue +73% versus H1 FY20. Near term impact on profitability resulting from COVID-driven distribution cost inflation, as well as key investment in building out the Group’s multi-brand proposition should not detract from the longer-term growth potential of the Group’s platform. A PE of 25.5x falling to 18.5x is at odds with the significant market opportunity that exists as m

Group revenue rose by 11% year on year (yoy) but was below group expectations due to global supply chain disruptions. Compounded by strong cost headwinds and inflationary pressures, this has had an adverse impact on profitability, notwithstanding the group’s strong cost control and cash management. The group is actively mitigating these pressures in conjunction with its customers. Customer se

Games Workshop’s (GAW) FY21 results were at record levels from the perspective of revenue, profitability, cash flow generation and cash returns to shareholders, driven by the launch of the ninth edition of 40K as well as products from prior year releases. The phasing and scale of future new product releases in FY22 and FY23 may produce lower rates of growth than FY21. Management’s focus on product innovation, customer engagement and geographic expansion has tended to provide positive surprises.
