IG Design Group (IGR) H1 results presentation 2019

02 December 2019

Presented by Paul Fineman, CEO & Giles Willits, CFO

Paul and Giles run through a strong set of H1 results, in spite of Brexit and China headwinds. They continue to grow margins, through creating value for customers. EPS growth at a lower percentage than PTP growth, simply down to month weightings on the Impact acquisition. Going forward they look to achieve on-going double digit earnings growth, greater than 75% cash conversion and ROCE greater than 24%. To be achieved through both organic growth and acquisition.
