(CAU) Centaur Media — Strong cash performance and special dividend
Centaur Media is an international provider of business information, training and specialist consultancy. Its Xeim and The Lawyer business units serve the marketing and legal sectors respectively and offer customers a wide range of products and services targeted at helping them add value.

Centaur’s year-end trading update indicates revenue of at least £41m and an EBITDA margin of more than 19.5%. Our FY22e EBITDA, PBT and EPS numbers are unchanged, showing strong growth over the prior year, albeit with a slower H222. Notwithstanding the reduced momentum, Centaur should still meet its FY23 MAP23 targets of £45m in revenue and an EBITDA margin of 23%. Given the strong cash performance, with year-end net cash of £16.0m (excluding lease debt), management has announced the payment of a special dividend of 3.0p per share, payable in February. This still leaves the group with plenty of cash to invest and grow.
