Another strong point, according to the Panmure Gordon analysts, is the focus on growing markets and structural shifts such as decarbonisation, which has been driving electrification.

They forecast that these markets are expected to increase annual organic growth by 4% this year and by 3% thereafter.

“We expect design & manufacturing to continue to drive growth and with management's objective to self-fund acquisitions longer term, we expect future acquisitions to become increasingly earnings accretive,” the analysts said in a note to clients..

“As current consensus excludes any future acquisitions, we believe there is significant opportunity for upgrades over the medium term,” they concluded.
