Solid H1 earnings and cash flow bode well for FY
Strong demand in the newbuild housing market helped towards a good first half result, in terms of meeting our FY 17 EBITDA and another strong cash performance. Although company guidance for the FY is unchanged, we sense there is scope for slight outperformance, since the H1 result represents 53% of our FY estimate. Net debt was c. £10m below our estimates, before the Bison acquisition, which we thought was a positive move.
