TClarke trading continues 'strongly' into second half

By Josh White

Date: Thursday 28 Nov 2019

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Building services group TClarke updated the market on its trading for the period from 1 July to date on Thursday, reporting that at the half year, it reported a 25% increase in underlying operating profit, with trading continuing "strongly" in the second half thus far.
The London-listed firm said that as a result, it expected the results for the full year ending 31 December would be in-line with market expectations.

It said it expected to report an underlying operating profit before interest and taxes of about £10m, up from £8.8m year-on-year, which would be in line with its stated strategy to achieve its key financial target of an underlying operating margin of 3%.

"We have made good progress in replenishing our forward order book, which currently stands at £361m," the board said in its statement.

"Reassuringly, revenues of £232m for 2020 have already been secured, against an equivalent figure of £230m at this time last year and up from £182m at the interims.

"In addition, our teams across the UK are actively negotiating a number of major schemes which provide further visibility for both 2020 and 2021."

Looking ahead, TClarke said its "long-standing, high quality" reputation and the strength of the relationships it had with blue-chip clients was a "key asset".

"Furthermore, our strong balance sheet continues to be a significant differentiator and enables us to win and deliver projects of a scale which positions us well for further growth.

"We continue to adhere to a strict bidding policy supporting our sustainable operating margin at 3% going forward."

The company's board said it was approaching the new financial year in a strong position, both operationally and financially, which gave it confidence for the group's prospects for 2020 and beyond.

At 1104 GMT, shares in TClarke were up 4.67% at 118.8p.
