Investment appetite returns but rephased

Watkin Jones highlights a continued recovery in the institutional funding market in today’s interim results, which were in line with its expectations of a significant H2 weighting for FY23E. This, and attractive new land opportunities, should support its long-run target margins. However, the group has exercised caution in recognising profits on long-term contracts, leading us to cut adjusted PBT by £25m for FY23E, while leaving FY24E unchanged. Longer term, we believe the clamour for rental accommodation and WJG’s unique model should support a return to growth.
