Investment summary

Genuit announced FY21 PBT norm of £91.1m (EPS 30.2p) ahead of our £86.7m (28.6p) expectation. Like-for-like revenue growth was 12.9% supplemented by acquisitions to 33% on a reported basis and the mix was slightly more in favour of Commercial & Infrastructure (C&I). Residential Systems (RS) generated the EBIT outperformance, including a 19.3% full year margin. The declared FY dividend of 12.2p and core net debt was £145m (pre IFRS 16). Since then, the trading update covering the first four months of FY22 showed total revenue up 8.3%, and up 6.3% on a like-for-like basis. C&I grew 9% and RS increased 7.8%, both growth due to underlying demand, pricing and M&A. Our estimates are under review.
