Sales and cashflow rebound as lockdown lifts

Scotland’s only quoted housebuilder’s home completions and cashflow have recovered sharply from the country’s prolonged lockdown, with delayed sales fuelling what the Group predicts will be a strong first half to the current financial year. Today’s FY 2020 results, to May, show the impact of the lockdown in the final two months, which normally account for almost a third of sales, but confirm that delayed sales are expected to add to strong underlying demand in H1 2021, with debt having fallen by over £25m in four months and a 2p final dividend proposed. Our reinstated forecasts assume PBT surpassing the previous record by FY2022E and debt continuing to fall.
