De La Rue

Keeping it real

Initiation | Industrial Support Services | 14 Jan 2019

De La Rue continues to pursue a strategy that is transitioning the company to a less capital-intensive operation with a more diverse customer base and revenue streams, incorporating more embedded technology and IP. Underlying progress is apparent although masked by the disposals and the recent loss of the UK passport contract. The strengthening of the balance sheet enables appropriate M&A to augment what we expect to be a resumption of organic sales growth from FY21. The current rating implies scepticism but this should improve as growth prospects are recognised. In the meantime, the healthy dividend yield provides support for investors.

H119 results demonstrate that management is delivering to its strategy. Strong order cover across the group suggests a sharp recovery in H219, enabling management to maintain expectations that it will meet market consensus. Longer-term contract wins also support the expectations for growth of the ongoing activities, passports aside. The shares trade on an undemanding 10.4x FY20e PER, supported by a healthy yield.
