Begbies Traynor – with more companies going bust or needing restructuring 2021 will be a good year

On Tuesday 8 December Begbies Traynor (LON:BEG) will be declaring its interim results for the six months to end October.


The business recovery, financial advisory and property services consultancy group enjoyed a strong first half year, we were told in its 18 November Trading Update.


Revenue was up 10% and adjusted pre-tax profits were 25% better. Furthermore, it has strengthened its financial position switching from £2.8m net debt in April to £0.7m of net cash six months later.


The company’s management is confident in expecting another year of growth, probably above market expectations of £9.8m in profits to end April 2021.


The group’s shares, currently 91.5p, look very capable of edging back up to their May peak of 117p, so a good statement will help push them back over the 100p level quite quickly.
