We are forecasting continued growth in underlying operating profit for Spirent in 2017e and 2018e, 18% and 11% respectively. Our chart and commentary on p2 provide some detail of the drivers.
The balance sheet position is strong, with $115m of net cash at Dec 31 2017e (our forecast).
In valuation terms, the shares now trade on 11.9x EV/OperatingProfit  for 2018e, which we believe offers upside if the operating profit growth continues as we expect.
