Plastics Capital PLC - Organic growth Accelerates

Plastics Capital PLC (LON:PLA) has reported a strong set of results for the financial year ended March 2018. Revenues of £76.7mln and earnings per share (EPS) of 9.5p are both slightly ahead of our forecast, which was last updated at the time of the detailed Plastics Capital trading update on May 2.
Plastics Capital PLC - Organic growth Accelerates

The most important headline metric, in our view, is the organic (like-for-like) revenue growth of 13.0%, which reflects a strategy shift undertaken last year to focus more on top-line growth.

During the last two years, Plastics Capital has undertaken a significant programme of investments - £4.1mln in FY Mar2018, including £1.8mln of investment in new capacity. The benefits are evident in the FY Mar2018 revenue growth, and we believe that earnings will begin to follow from FY Mar2019 onwards. We believe that the current valuation at a Mar2019 price/earnings ratio of 9.3x represents an interesting entry point in light of these growth dynamics.
