Global commodity crisis off-setting progress

Shanks Group (L:SKS)

The trading statement on 3 February highlighted further progress in the Commercial division. However, this was offset by impacts from the global commodity crisis, leaving results likely to be slightly below expectations, and we are lowering our 2016 EPS forecasts by 7%. With the disposal of the Wakefield assets the first stage in value realisation from the PFI portfolio and the shares drifting below our valuation range (unchanged at 106-130p/share), a yield over 4% should provide support before more tangible evidence from the cost management programmes shows in results.

Netherlands Commercial progress encouraging
Continuing the trend seen at the interim stage, Netherlands was again the star performer, with the self-help initiatives more than offsetting lower recyclate prices. However, the ongoing global commodity crisis had a number of direct and indirect impacts on the Hazardous Waste and Municipal divisions. Shanks has been affected in three main areas: lower waste oil prices, lower electricity generation receipts and lower recyclate prices as it sells by-products from recycling back into the market. While the recent volatility in commodity prices is outside its control, it again demonstrates the clear need for self-help programmes, leaving Shanks a more resilient business and better placed to benefit from an economic recovery.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well.

  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view.
