Epwin supplies functional low-maintenance exterior building products (including windows, doors, roofline and rainwater goods) into a number of UK market segments and is a modest exporter.

Investment summary

Building on previous updates – and having reopened all facilities – Epwin has confirmed that it has seen demand levels rebuilding following COVID-19 disruption during H1. In particular, sales in the replacement market have exceeded their prior year equivalents in the latest two trading months. Net debt dipped at the period end, further boosting liquidity headroom. The near-term focus is on delivering increased customer requirements and full commissioning of the new Telford warehouse facility. Our estimates remain suspended currently.

Industry outlook

Epwin is exposed to both RMI (c 70% revenue) and newbuild (c 30%) in the UK housing market. Newbuild activity growth slowed at the end of 2019, while RMI demand has been more patchy. The Brexit debate weakened consumer confidence which appeared to recover following the general election result before the coronavirus lockdown occurred.
