We note that our FY21E Adj EBITDA forecast is currently £7.1m, and hence factors in only minimal organic growth, despite the fact that positive momentum from H2/FY21A has continued into the current

Gore Street’s confirmation of a 90MW capacity increase at Kilmannock is a clear positive in our view and takes the fund’s portfolio to over 600MW of projects either operating or under construction. These are split between the GB market and the all-Ireland market with the fund now owning the largest portfolio of storage assets in Ireland. In the GB market price volatility continues to be strong and we expect the fund’s assets to be benefiting from this.

A key focus for the company in 2021/22 was to de-gear the Balance Sheet with sales at or above book value.

Mercia reported a strong rise in the NAV of its Northern Venture Trust (NVT) subsidiary, reflecting the IPO of musicMagpie and other successful exits, leading to Mercia receiving a net performance fee of £1.6m. As a result, together with Mercia’s substantially recurring management fees, management expects H122 PAT to exceed £10m, with the FY22 adjusted operating profit (excluding the NVT net performance fee) expected to be materially ahead of market forecasts. The shares trade at a larger discou
Aviva’s trading update came with some satisfaction, albeit in line with what it had been guiding. All indicators are “on track” as communicated by the firm. The interesting area will come, in our view, from the pressure that activist Cevian is exercising on the firm to distribute more excess capital.
