Investment summary

Full year FY12 results confirmed Centaur’s expected strong operating performance and improving cash generation, based on a strategy of driving further into digital and events markets to produce a larger, better-balanced and more profitable group. The outlook is for another good advance in EPS this year. The momentum in group performance owes little to the market place, reflecting the successful transformational strategy. The shares have a potential 45% upside in view of the earnings prospects.
