Norcros is a leading supplier of showers, enclosures and trays, tiles, taps and related fittings and accessories for bathrooms, kitchens, washrooms and other commercial environments. It has operations in the UK and South Africa, with some export activity from both countries.
In the UK housing market’s recovery phase from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, RMI has clearly been the stronger sub-sector. UK newbuild fundamentals remain favourable also. Similar trends have been seen in South Africa. The commercial sub-sectors generally remain subdued.
|52 week high/low||312.0p/165.0p|
Norcros’s interims highlighted a solid H1 performance, and although we have reduced our estimates to reflect a weaker outlook into FY24, we believe that Norcros’s proven strategy remains on track, which should allow it to unlock significant market share opportunities. We also believe that its key strengths are undervalued and that most, if not all, of the legacy issues, particularly the pension deficit, have been resolved. We have reduced our valuation from 314p/sh to 252p implying c 40% upside.
