A trading update from Marshall Motor Holdings (MMH) confirms very strong Q320 trading performance as activity bounced back after the lockdowns. All segments outperformed, beating management expectations and leading to an increase for FY20 PBT guidance to c £15m from break-even previously.
Uncertainty remains about prospects for Q420 and FY21 as potential headwinds loom. A sustained recovery may be some way off, as reflected in the undemanding FY21e P/E rating of 8.6x.
Marshall Motor Holdings Plc (LON:MMH), together with its subsidiaries, engages in retailing passenger cars and commercial vehicles in the United Kingdom. It sells new and used vehicles; and provides after sales services, such as servicing, body shop repairs, and parts sales.
