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.

The UK’s new build housing market is subdued following the interest rate increases, although the repair, maintenance and improvement market has been more robust. In South Africa, demand across the board has been affected by the ongoing power disruption issues, which are likely to remain a feature.

Norcros is the UK’s leading design-led sustainable kitchen and bathroom products group. Its compelling investment case was highlighted at its May 2024 capital markets day (CMD), where its unique, asset-light, design-led model was clearly illustrated. The CMD also indicated the enormous scale of the opportunity that is available in terms of entering adjacent unaddressed markets in the UK and South Africa, as well as the potential presented by other attractive geographies. Furthermore, revised medium term targets were introduced that should further excite investors. Our profit forecasts are unchanged, but we have raised our valuation from 246p to 251p as we have rolled forward our P/E valuation and increased our FY25 dividend estimate.
