Titon Holdings Plc

Preliminary Announcement for the year ended 30 September 2014

 

Chairman's Statement

Financial Performance

The result for the year to 30 September 2014 is a net Profit before Taxation of £1,333,000 (2013: £505,000), on Revenues 22.3 % higher at £19.3 million (2013: £15.7 million). The Profit after Taxation is £1,277,000 (2013: £476,000) resulting in Earnings per Share of 8.52p (2013: 2.87p).

Net cash balances at the year end were £2.15 million (2013: £2.12 million) and total capital expenditure during the year was £386,000 (2013: £408,000).

The Directors are proposing a final dividend of 1.5p per share (2013: 1.0p). This, when added to the interim dividend paid on 24 June 2014 gives a total for the year of 2.5p (2013: 2.0p).  If approved by shareholders at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting, the dividend will be payable on 20 February 2015 to shareholders on the register on 30 January 2015.  The ex dividend date is 29 January 2015.

Trading Commentary

I am very pleased that the Group Profit before Tax of £1,333,000 has improved so significantly from the profit last year of £505,000. This is largely due to another very good result from our subsidiary in Korea, which has continued to trade well in the second half year. I am also pleased to report that the underlying trading performance in the United Kingdom has improved in the second half where we have made a small profit after a number of months of making losses. Our overall Group Revenue has increased by 22.3% over the last financial period, which reflects the more benign market conditions in the UK and the growth in Korea: as you will see from the sales analysis contained in the Consolidated Financial Statements our partnership in Korea now generates nearly 30% of Group Revenue, which is a significant achievement for a business which only started trading in 2008.

As I have said before, the state of the UK economy has a major role to play in our fortunes as our biggest source of revenue is the UK, where we are principally involved in the replacement doors and windows market and the house building part of the construction sector. We all depend on the market to provide demand for our products and we are pleased to see that the UK economy continues to grow despite the weakness of demand in the Eurozone. Anecdotally, we believe that the replacement door and window industry has grown during the financial year. The Construction Products Association ("CPA") statistics show a rise in private housing repairs, maintenance and improvements of about 4% in 2013 and they forecast a rise of 6% in 2014. These numbers cover all improvements, not just doors and windows, and will therefore include significant amounts of insulation work.  They are not indicative of a boom and activity levels are still well down on pre-banking crisis levels. We have seen these better figures reflected in demand for our own door and window hardware products where sales have shown a small year-on-year increase. In the house building sector we continue to see strong growth statistics from the major house builders as consumer demand has increased. However, as previously recorded our sales are more aligned to the social housing sector where local authorities and housing associations tend to specify mechanical ventilation in far greater volumes than in the private sector. The public housing sector is dependent on Government funding and the current Affordable Homes Programme has a much smaller budget than the previous National Affordable Homes Programme meaning that overall the number of public housing units will be lower over this Parliament than the last one.

Chairman's Statement (continued)

We are a long way off building the same number of homes in the UK as we did in 2007 when over 200,000 were constructed. According to data from the CPA we have seen an increase in 2013 of public housing starts of 22% against 2012 and they expect that the figure for 2014 will see a small increase over 2013, but tailing off in future years as reductions in funding from central Government lead to a reduction in activity at local government levels. We have been very pleased with the increase in sales of Ventilation Systems products during the financial year, which reflects the increased activity levels in the public housing sector and the demand for our products, which is driven by the need for mechanical ventilation to provide the right level of ventilation in new apartments.  

We continue to spend considerable time and effort in developing new products both for our Hardware and Ventilation Systems businesses as we recognise that we have to offer more products to our customers than we do currently. In Ventilation Systems a high functionality control system, the Aurastat, has now been finished which allows accurate commissioning and monitoring of a Titon mechanical ventilation with heat recovery ("MVHR") unit. We expect that this will be very popular with customers in Europe where home occupiers typically require more sophisticated controllers than in the UK. I would like to thank our Design and Research & Development teams for all the hard work they have put in on this project and the refinements and improvements to the range of MVHR products during the year. In our Hardware business we are committed to winning more of our customers' expenditure on hardware to whom we sell mainly trickle vents. Progress has not been as quick as we hoped, but we are going to persevere.

 

Once again, the best performer for us has undoubtedly been our subsidiary in Korea, which saw an increase in revenues of 53.8% from £3.68m in 2013 to £5.66m in the current period. As I noted in the Interim Statement, this result has been due to higher sales both into the private house building sector and government housing market compared to 2013 and this has continued in the second half. David Ruffell and I visited Korea in early November 2014 to attend the audit meeting and once again, we were impressed by the effort that all of our Korean colleagues have made to build the business for which we thank them.

On our Consolidated Statement of Financial Position our cash balances remain strong, but the return they generate continues to fall. In the UK we have increased our stock levels this year to ensure that customer orders can be satisfied as quickly as possible and the increase in revenue in Korea has also led to both higher inventories and higher receivables. We will monitor these items closely in 2015.

Employees

Employee numbers within the Group have risen from 178 at the beginning of the year to 193 at 30 September 2014. The increase is largely in the UK reflecting the additional demand for our UK manufactured products.

There has been much discussion recently about the movement of people into the UK from the EU. Titon currently employs staff from at least 7 countries within the EU and we value their contribution. Having access to the European labour market is valuable, particularly as the levels of unemployment in the UK keep falling and UK businesses are taking on staff. I would like to thank all of our employees for their hard work during the year and I fully recognise that they make a very large contribution to the success of the Group.

Titon Holdings Plc

Preliminary Announcement for the year ended 30 September 2014

 

Chairman's Statement (continued)

 

Our Export Director, Chris Jarvis, will be leaving Titon next year after over 40 years with the Company. Chris was one of our very first employees when he joined John Anderson in the first Titon office in North Essex and was appointed Sales Director in October 1974. I thank Chris for all his hard work and particularly his dedication to Titon over the years and wish him very well in the future.

Prospects

We are encouraged that the recovery in the UK continues and that the economy is growing. The forecasts produced by the CPA indicate lower growth levels of house building and repairs, maintenance and improvement in both the private and public housing sectors in the period from 2015 to 2018, albeit remaining positive. With the new products that we expect to launch we remain optimistic that we will see increased sales. However, we do need the UK economy, in particular, to continue to grow and for consumers to feel confident to make substantial home improvements. The big uncertainty next year will be the UK general election: on the one hand a change of government always leads to changes in policy and potentially, funding programmes; on the other hand a referendum on EU membership in 2017 and possibly a UK exit, could generate considerable uncertainty. This would have unpredictable consequences for the UK economy and Titon.

In Europe we expect our sales of Ventilation Systems products to increase as a result of the investment in both people and products that we have made in the last two years. We certainly hope that the Eurozone can increase its growth rate above the current low levels as this will help our sales of both hardware and mechanical products. However, the current outlook is not encouraging.

In Korea we anticipate a slower rate of growth than we have seen in the last two years as there is more competition in the natural ventilation market. We will also invest time and resources in identifying other products to sell in Korea given the very good relationships established with the window companies and developers.

In summary, the next twelve months will, no doubt, challenge us but our balance sheet remains strong and this will allow us to invest in our business where we need to and shareholders should gain comfort from this.

 

On behalf of the Board.

4     Revenue and segmental information

In identifying its operating segments, management generally follows the Group's reporting lines, which represent the main geographic markets in which the Group operates. The segment reporting below is shown in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the Board, which is the Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM). These operating segments are monitored and strategic decisions are made on the basis of segment operating results.  The Group operates three main business segments which are:

Segment

Activities undertaken include:

United Kingdom

Sales of passive and powered ventilation products to house builders, electrical contractors and window and door manufacturers. In addition to this, it is a leading supplier of window and door hardware.

South Korea

Sales of passive ventilation products to construction companies.

All other countries

Sales of passive and powered ventilation products to distributors, window manufacturers and construction companies.

 

 

Inter-segment revenue is transacted on an arm's length basis and charged at prevailing market prices for a specific product and market or cost plus where no direct comparative market price is available.  Segment results include items directly attributable to a segment as well as those that can be allocated on a reasonable basis.  Research and development entity-wide financial expenses are not allocated to the business activities for which R&D is specifically performed and it is not therefore reported as a separate operating segment. Sales Administration and Other Expenses are not currently allocated to operating segments in the Group's reporting to the CODM, and Other Expenses include mainly central and parent company overheads relating to group management, the finance function and regulatory requirements.

The measurement policies the Group uses for segment reporting under IFRS 8 are the same as those used in its financial statements.

The total assets for the segments represent the consolidated total assets attributable to these reporting segments. Parent company results and consolidation adjustments reconciling the segmental results and total assets to the consolidated financial statements, are included within the United Kingdom segment figures stated over page.

8    Basis of preparation 

The financial information for the year ended 30 September 2014 together with the comparative year has been prepared in accordance with the recognition and measurement criteria of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union.

Titon Holdings Plc

Notes to the Preliminary Announcement for the year ended 30 September 2014

 

8       Basis of preparation (continued)

 

·     IAS 19 Employee Benefits - the main changes introduced by the amendment revolve around the accounting for defined benefit pension schemes.

·     IAS 32 Offsetting Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities - the changes clarify the meaning of 'currently has a legally enforceable right of set-off'; and that some gross settlement systems may be considered equivalent to net settlement.

·     IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement - defines fair value, sets out in a single IFRS a framework for measuring fair value and requires disclosures about fair value measurements. 

·     Amendments to IAS 36 Recoverable amounts disclosures for non-financial assets - the narrow scope amendment addresses the disclosure of information about the recoverable amount of impaired assets if that amount is based on fair value less cost of disposal.

·     Amendments to IAS 39 Novation of Derivatives and Continuation of Hedge Accounting - this narrow scope amendment to IAS 39 will allow hedge accounting to continue, if specific conditions are met, in a situation where a derivative, which has been designated as a hedging instrument, is novated to effect the clearing with a central counterparty as a result of laws or regulation.

·     IFRIC 21 Levies. This is an interpretation of IAS 37 Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets on the accounting for levies imposed by governments - the interpretation clarifies that the obligation event that gives rise to a liability to pay a levy is the activity described in the relevant legislation that triggers the payment of the levy.

 

The information in this preliminary announcement does not constitute the statutory accounts of the Group within the meaning of Section 435 of the Companies Act 2006 for the year ended 30 September 2014 or 2013.

The financial information for the year ended 30 September 2013 is derived from the statutory accounts for that year which have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies. The auditors have reported on those accounts; their report was unqualified, did not draw attention to any matters by way of emphasis, and did not contain a statement under 498(2) or 498(3) of the Companies Act 2006. The statutory accounts for 2014, on which the auditors have not yet reported, will be finalised on the basis of the financial information presented by the Directors in this preliminary announcement. The independent Auditors' Report will be based on those statutory accounts once they are complete. The statutory accounts will be delivered to the Registrar of Companies following the Company's Annual General Meeting which will be held on 18 February 2015.
