Company Report

Compass: Strong Start to 2024 and Guidance Points to Continuing Growth

Narrow-moat Compass Group delivered a solid first-quarter fiscal 2024 trading update. Organic revenue growth was up almost 12%, a strong performance. Clearly, growth is falling from the highs of 2022 and 2023, but from a very high base to a more realistic and manageable level. However, we do believe the story is now being fully appreciated by the market with the share price currently hovering around our GBX 2,250 fair value estimate.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Compass is well positioned to benefit from a secular shift toward outsourcing in developed markets.

Bears

Corporate spending for food-service programs is often pressured during economic downturns, which can affect a large portion of Compass' overall business.
