Cpl has capitalised on a solid market backdrop to deliver a strong performance in FY2018. Profit before tax (PTB) for the year is expected to be in-line with expectations, implying 15% growth on the prior year. Achieving this in the context of a challenging UK healthcare environment highlights the company’s adaptability, while a strong temp performance, in response to changing market needs, demonstrates execution capability. We expect to put through low-single-digit upgrades to our FY2019 forecasts and see valuation levels, most notably 8.0x FY2019 ex-cash P/E, as attractive.
