Mar 07th 2013 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on 4imprint (FOUR.L, LSE:FOUR, LON:FOUR) entitled "Outmarketing The Market". In summary, the report says:
4imprint has delivered another good set of results, growing its market share in the highly fragmented US market and making notable progress on improving returns in the UK. Proceeds from last year’s disposal of Brand Addition have allowed for a significant de-risking of the pension fund liability and should allow the market to focus on the opportunity to build further in the US. A lower tax charge than expected has improved the earnings per share and brought in the rating to a very attractive level.
