T Clarke sees full year ahead of market expectations

By Michele Maatouk

Date: Tuesday 27 Nov 2018

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Building services group T Clarke said on Tuesday that 2018 results should be ahead of market expectations as it approaches the new financial year "in excellent shape".
In an update for 1 July to date, the company said it expects underlying operating profit before interest and taxation of around £8.6m, up from £7.3m in the same period a year ago, and revenue of £320m versus £311m. The group said the implied underlying operating profit margin of 2.7% provides further evidence that it is on track to achieve its target of 3%.

The company's forward order book has grown by 6% year on year and now stands at a record £403m versus £380m last year, while project wins totalling £150m have been secured since the announcement of the half year results.

"This update provides clear evidence that the group's strategy is working and underpins our confidence that our underlying operating profit margin target of 3% is attainable in the near future," it said.

"The strength and reputation of T Clarke is evidenced by our record forward order book. We have maintained our market leading position in our traditional markets whilst securing technology driven projects, where project complexity and specification levels play to our strengths."

At 1525 GMT, the shares were up 3.9% to 89p.
