SMALL-CAP - WINNERS

XP Power Ltd, up 6.7% at 1,072.88 pence, 12-month range 682.40p-2,750.00p. The company that designs and manufactures power controllers rises, after publishing its trading update. Says that revenue in the third quarter of 2023 was £75.1 million down from £79.4 million. However, operating profit was slightly ahead of its expectations due to a better outturn in September. Trading in October has been ‘at least’ in line with company expectations. Also says it has undertaken a number of important cost reduction and cash preservation actions that will benefit the remainder of 2023 and 2024. Looking ahead, XP left its full-year expectations unchanged. It also notes ‘advanced and constructive discussions’ with its lending banks concerning ‘future covenant requirements and other near-term actions to strengthen the balance sheet’.

Looking ahead, Foxtons expects a robust performance in the fourth quarter with the supply of available rental properties likely to improve, although year-on-year rental increases are expected to moderate.
