DAVY VIEW

Post Tate & Lyle’s FY 2018 results, we are upgrading our FY 2019 operating profit and adjusted diluted EPS forecasts by 6% and 10% respectively with profit growth remaining weighted to Tate’s Commodity business, Primary Products. New CEO Nick Hampton unveiled a refreshed growth strategy which centres on M&A, innovation and productivity savings. Management actions to accelerate growth are a welcome development, although it will take time for Hampton’s new ambitions to materialise and for Tate’s higher margin Food & Beverage Solutions division to return to sustainable growth. As such, we retain our ‘Neutral’ rating.
