Was National Express Group PLC's (LON:NEX) Earnings Growth Better Than The Industry's?

NEX

Was National Express Group PLC's (LON:NEX) Earnings Growth Better Than The Industry's? In this article, I will take a look at National Express Group PLC's (LON:NEX) most recent earnings update (31 December 2018) and compare these latest figures against its performance over the past few years, along with how the rest of NEX's industry performed. As a long-term investor, I find it useful to analyze the company's trend over time in order to estimate whether or not the company is able to meet its goals, and eventually grow sustainably over time. NEX's trailing twelve-month earnings (from 31 December 2018) of UK£136m has increased by 8.5% compared to the previous year. However, this one-year growth rate has been lower than its average earnings growth rate over the past 5 years of 19%, indicating the rate at which NEX is growing has slowed down. Furthermore, its return on assets (ROA) of 5.1% is below the GB Transportation industry of 5.4%, indicating National Express Group's are utilized less efficiently. And finally, its return on capital (ROC), which also accounts for National Express Group’s debt level, has declined over the past 3 years from 9.3% to 9.1%.

National Express revs up sales growth

NEX

National Express accelerated revenues in the first three months of its new financial year as it prepares to take a 60 per cent stake in Silicon Valley’s shuttle service in a £64.5 million deal. The Birmingham-headquartered transport operator saw group revenues rise 8.3 per cent year on year between January and April, with the US growing by the same amount even before National Express takes control of We Drive U, taking Facebook and other tech giants’ staff to work. The firm, which runs bus services across the West Midlands, said its coach business in the UK boasted growth of seven per cent, but was dragged down by bus revenue growth of just 1.8 per cent. Dean Finch, group chief executive, said: “I am pleased all of our divisions have started 2019 in a positive manner and we have seen strong trading over the important Easter period.
