Investment summary

Severfield’s H121 revenues were up 5% with EBIT ahead c 7% and an improved contribution from JV/associates also. The company declared a DPS uplift of 9% y-o-y for the period. UK/Ireland operations hold a record and balanced £393m order book position boosted by significant wins in the stadia/leisure and transport subsectors, which provides excellent visibility for the remainder of this year and well into FY23. The Indian JV returned to profitability in the first half driven by a recovery in activity from FY21 levels and at the same time managed to sustain its £140m order book. Management’s expectation for a strong H2 and full year for the group are unchanged. Our estimates are under review.
