The stars are aligning
We think equipment rental specialist Vp is ideally placed to benefit from a sustainable upswing. Today posting robust H1’21 results (see below) – as evidenced by its 7.6% EBIT margin (vs 15.2% LY), £41m positive cashflow and 10.3% ROCE (14.5% LY), despite suffering a -23.8% sales decline to £142.1m, amidst some of the toughest conditions in a generation.
Our forecasts have been reinstated, delivering a fair value of 900p/share. Meaning that at 775p, we believe the stock is attractively priced. Both in absolute terms and vs peers, trading on FY22 multiples (pre IFRS16) of 13.1x PER, 12.6x EV/EBIT and 5.2x EV/EBITDA.
