Plastics Capital - Delivering balanced growth

Written by Ed Stacey

Plastics Capital (LON:PLA) has reported first half  (H1) results to September 2018 showing revenue growth of +11.4%, underlying earnings (EBITDA) growth of +42.8%, and adjusted earnings per share (EPS) growth of +67.9%. These results reinforce our confidence in our full-year (FY) March 2019 forecasts, including our EPS growth forecast of 25.3%.

When Plastics Capital reported FY Mar2018 results in June, the Industrials division was just beginning to show signs of improvement following some disappointing project delays, particularly in the high-margin Bearings business. The H1 results release shows 10.9% revenue growth for Industrials, including 18% for Bearings, with commensurate benefit to EBITDA. We argue that this provides very encouraging evidence that the growth plan for Industrials is moving back on track.
