ANALYST VIEWS: CAN CINEWORLD MAINTAIN ITS PROGRESS?

SIMON FRENCH | PANMURE

The company is confident of delivering continued growth for the full year at least in line with expectations. We don’t anticipate any change to our numbers at this stage, but clearly the risk to forecasts lies on the upside.

KEITH BOWMAN | HARGREAVES LANSDOWN

The group’s investment in technology, conservative expansion and exposure to an improving advertising market provide potential earnings growth ... market consensus opinion currently denotes a ‘strong buy’.

NIGEL PARSON | EVOLUTION SECURITIES

The slate of films for the next 15 months should continue to draw in the crowds and the continuing shift to the digital platform should result in further market share gains. We are increasing our target price to 245p from 235p to reflect the upgrade.
