Plastics Capital Plc - Reaction to the Interim Results

Plastics Capital Plc (LON: PLA) reported interim results (H1 end Sep 2017) on Wednesday 6th. These show positive progress on new business wins, reflected in the H1 organic revenue growth of 13.5%, and an increased pipeline of new business (see chart p2).

At the same time the company guided to a less favourable margin mix for FY Mar 2018, with some projects delayed in the Bearings business, and more of the FY revenue to come from the lower margin Films business.

We believe that the business pipeline supports solid prospective earnings growth in the coming years. The shares remain attractively value on P/E multiples (see below) or on other metrics.

Plastics Capital (LON:PLA) released a trading update on March 1st, for the year ending March 31st. The company reports that trading remains broadly in line with market expectations. Revenue growth has remained strong in the second half, particularly in the Films division, reflecting the company’s programme of investments in expansion.
In terms of profitability, the EBITDA margin is still expected to increase versus H1, but at a lesser level than previously expected. This is due to a slower growth rate in the higher margin Industrials division, compared with the lower margin Films business.

Plastics Capital PLC (LON:PLA) has reported a strong set of results for the financial year ended March 2018.
