Mid-week Tip

Construction remains a strong market in many countries around the world and this requires solid and uncontaminated foundations. That means using the type of geotechnical skills provided by Keller (LSE: KLR), which has operations around the globe. Demand for Keller’s services is shown by the order book, yet the valuation is modest.

To the end of 2021, there was a record order book of £1.3bn, with £787m of this in North America. That was before the latest contract win.

Keller has gained a contract in Saudi Arabia, that could end up generating hundreds of millions of pounds. The NEOM project involves constructing a new city and there will be an initial £50m in revenues generated in the next 12 months.

On top of this trading continues to be robust. Margins are starting to recover. Higher costs are being recovered from clients and Keller is on course to meet expectations.
