Last year, I pretty much tore Norish a new one..! Which was certainly well deserved: They own 8 UK cold-storage sites, which they actively manage – all for a bloody return lower than they’d earn leasing them out!? Despite this, I still flagged them as offering 42% upside – a year later, they’re now trading right in line with my target price. And finally, something’s happening here…
In Sep-12, they acquired Townview Foods, a Northern Irish meat trading firm with GBP 16.2 mio of annual revenues & a GBP 1.0 mio operating profit. The management team appears to have been left in place, as ‘Townview will continue to operate as a separate business within the Norish Group‘. This is encouraging – the last thing needed here are Norish executives messing up what looks like a decent/stable business.
