Fenner PLC Analyst Notes
On May 30, 2014, Fenner PLC (Fenner), a leader in reinforced polymer technology, cautioned that its FY 2014 (period ended August 31, 2014) financial results would miss the market estimates as trading conditions in the U.S. coal market continue to deteriorate while showing no signs of imminent improvement. The Company said that the ECS division, which trades under the Fenner Dunlop, Fenner and Dunlop brand names, will see "significantly" weaker results in the U.S. for the rest of FY2014. Fenner also attributed the cautious forecasts to its failure in a competitive tender for the supply of conveyor belt to an iron ore miner in Western Australia. Fenner expects these factors will impact its underlying FY 2014 profit before tax by 10-15% relative to the prevailing market consensus forecast of £77.6 million. Meanwhile, the performance outlook for the AEP segment remains unchanged for the remaining FY 2014. The full analyst notes on Fenner are available to download free of charge at:
