Safety solutions and safe operations at its heart
Pros
  • SFPI combines exposure to capital goods and construction. Its growth hinges on the continuing need for security, energy savings, IoT, renovation and increasing regulation
  • No capital increase despite the successive crises and a policy to at least maintain the dividend (only briefly dropped in COVID times) are two differentiating elements in the small cap universe
  • Excellent track record in terms of acquisitions (more than 80 implemented): SFPI Group operates in niche, fragmented markets with bolt-on acquisitions to restart when prices adjust lower
Cons
  • SFPI is a by-word for industrial caution. This has kept the lid on debt-financed growth, but proved a formidable plus in COVID times
  • SFPI is France-centred (c.60% of sales), but the company is willing to accelerate in Europe as well as globally but on a longer horizon.
  • Management efforts to aggregate environmental data at group level are likely to deliver only from 2022 leading to the current weak sustainability ratings
