Spectris profit down as weak trading persists
Profit at precision instrument maker Spectris (SXS) is not measuring up, according to Deutsche Bank.

Analyst Liz Bebb retained her ‘hold’ recommendation but reduced her target price to £18.30. The shares rose 20p to £17.21 yesterday.

‘Weaker trading conditions after the first half and resulting lower drop-through to the bottom line is not offset by cost reduction measures,’ she said.

‘We therefore reduce our earnings per share expectations for full-year 2015 and 2016 by 11-12%. We expect H2 2015 weakness to persist and have reduced segment profit expectations by 9% to £179 million, in line with management guidance.

‘For full-year 2016 estimates, organic growth is expected to be 1% to 1.5%, slightly below the level needed to offset underlying cost inflation; however, benefits from the cost restructuring program undertaken in H2 2015 are expected to offset the remaining inflation, leading to broadly flat margins year-on-year.’

Numis analysts have reiterated a “hold” position for Spectris, due to a more difficult than expected second half, with underlying revenue down around 1.5 per cent year-on-year for 2015. Performance in China has held up, contrary to fears and there has been some positive momentum for new product launches. The target price has been lifted to 1,835p from 1,704p.

"The difficult market conditions in the second half of 2012 provided a backdrop for Spectris to demonstrate the quality and resilience of its business model," Michael Blogg, an analyst at Investec, commented this morning.

"We have revised our estimates from a basis of ultra-caution to a level achievable in a low-growth environment, with upside potential if markets recover more quickly. The increase in our target price, driven by the 6-7% increase in our earnings per share (EPS) estimates, is not quite enough to justify a more positive recommendation than hold."

He added: "Spectris has the spread and market presence to deliver growth in most circumstances, augmented by its organic and bolt-on investments financed out of cash flows and overseen by a highly-respected management team.

"It is now within striking distance of the FTSE 100, where we believe it would not look out of place in terms of investment quality.

"The board is confident that Spectris continues to be strategically well-positioned for 2013 and beyond."

The group said it expects to see growth in its Life Sciences sector continue, but said its Mining sector looks set to continue to slow in the first half of 2013.

"We also see potential in the emerging nano-materials sector, creating demand from academic research institutions, as well as in-house research and development laboratories in the pharmaceutical and advanced materials sectors," it said.

Sales in Test & Measurement rose 3.0% on a like-for-like basis, while operating profit grew 0.7%, helped by strong demand from the electronics and telecoms markets and continued growth in automotive.

In-line Instrumentation sales climbed 4.0%, and operating profit rose 0.5%, after it experienced good demand from Asia Pacific, Japan and China in particular.
