LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / September 4, 2019 / We expect a stronger H219 from John Laing Group (JLG) after a mixed performance in H1, when NAV growth was restrained by asset write downs. Although we have reduced our FY19 estimate for NAV per share to 353p (+9% year-on-year), we believe the long-term outlook for the business remains favourable given the global requirement for infrastructure investment. JLG’s shares now stand at a small discount to peer group averages, offering an attractive entry point for potential investors.
Share price weakness following the H1 results now places JLG on a c 9% premium to its last reported NAV per share, slightly below peer group average of 14%. This provides a more attractive entry point for investing in the shares.
