Cohort - Marching On

Cohort’s earnings performance in FY17 once again exceeded our expectations. Stronger performances from EID and MCL more than outweighed the sharp contraction at SCS, where a swift response from management has already improved profitability. The cash performance was also better than expected and the dividend increase to 7.1p was also ahead of our forecast. We expect further solid progress in the current year, and our fair value estimate currently stands at 471p.
