S&U: Adjusting to prevailing conditions S&U’s FY19 results were close to expectations and changes to our prospective numbers are limited. The tightening of motor finance lending criteria and more modest receivables growth are prudent and should help protect prospective profitability at a point where there is considerable macro uncertainty. Small as yet, the property bridging business is developing well and has the potential to augment growth usefully in future. Andrew Mitchell Financials analyst
S&U Lending discipline tempers pace of growth S&U’s year-end trading statement indicated that FY19 results would be in line with expectations. Motor finance new business has slowed recently reflecting a combination of more intense competition and S&U’s maintenance of tighter credit criteria. As a result, FY20 starts with lower receivables than we had assumed, and it also seems prudent to allow for lower growth than previously. Our FY20e EPS is reduced by 4.7% but the prospective ROE remains above 17%. Analysts Andrew Mitchell Martyn King
RNS Number: 1685 P S& U PLC 06 February 2019 6 February 2019. TRADING STATEME NT AND NOTICE OF RESULTS. Debt quality is consistent with, and beginning to respond to, the underwriting changes made earlier in the year and monthly collections in January exceeded �12 m for the first time.
S&U Trading broadly in line S&U’s latest trading update indicates it is on track to deliver results close to expectations for the current year. Motor finance receivables growth slowed in the second half, which prompted a reduction in our estimates, primarily for FY20. We still look for a return on equity (ROE) of above 17% and believe the discipline shown in holding to pricing and credit criteria at Advantage is a positive sign for investors. Our expectations for Aspen Property Bridging are unchanged and it should provide a valuable diversifying contribution to profits. Analysts Andrew Mitchell Martyn King
