Investment summary

XP’s Q122 trading update confirms demand has remained strong across the board, with order intake up 39% y-o-y and the order book reaching c £260m at the end of Q122, up from £216m at the end of FY21. Ongoing supply chain issues limited the amount of product that could be shipped in the quarter, with revenue up 8% y-o-y. We have revised our forecasts to take account of supply chain headwinds and the recent US legal case, reducing our normalised diluted EPS forecast by 7.1% for FY22 and 4.2% for FY23.

Industry outlook

XP supplies three end-markets: healthcare, industrial technology and semiconductor manufacturing, across Europe, North America and Asia. The industrial technology segment is relatively fragmented, but the company sees demand across various applications. The healthcare business continues to gain market share, with corporate approvals from the major suppliers in place. The semiconductor segment is the most cyclical, tracking the capex requirements of semiconductor manufacturers.
