Update extends long record of growth

A positive FY24 update reiterates the inherent reliability of its business. Both revenues (up 12% at c £136m) and EBITDA are expected to come in ahead of market expectations, adj. PBT in line. The latter reflects relatively subdued corporate finance M&A volumes and expenses related to investment in its teams and IT support.

According to the update both divisions grew materially y-o-y on the back of acquisitions and organic growth. Business recovery and advisory was c 7% up, property advisory and transactional services by c 25%. The latter saw all its core disciplines - valuation, asset sales and consultancy - pick up pace. The c 13% expected revenue growth by business recovery reflects higher activity levels across all case sizes and that operation is well placed to capitalise on market growth.

The four acquisitions completed in FY24 added c £5m to FY24 revenues (£9m+ pa on an ongoing, pro-forma basis), and built insolvency and property advisory operational capacity and geographical profile. Their integration is progressing well and all trade in line with expectations.

We expect more acquisition led and organic growth which has driven the last 3 years, with BEG to add capacity, geographical reach, and market share in its core disciplines. The rating of BEG shares appears to have lagged events and we retain our 175p/share fair value.
