Investment summary

Epwin’s H119 update reiterated existing guidance. Markets remain soft but business improvement activities, including new facility and product development investment, are ongoing and should be reflected in earnings improvement. The company remains conservatively funded and in a good position to continue to develop. An excellent dividend yield and modest rating at an earnings low represent good entry points for investors.

Industry outlook

Epwin is exposed to both RMI (c 70% revenue) and newbuild (c 30%) in the UK housing market. Newbuild activity is clearly still growing, while RMI demand has been more patchy. Referencing potential post-Brexit consumer confidence, industry commentators have expressed near-term caution.
