As one of the largest aggregate suppliers in the country I would guess they are quite a substantial creditor in the Carillion debacle

8:18 22/11/2017 Trading update
It makes you wonder why the SP is falling again today after the following, very positive, RNS. Buying opportunity maybe since it has fallen back from 93p only a short while ago? NEWS RELEASE 22 November 2017 BREEDON GROUP PLC ("Breedon" or "the Group") Trading Update Trading performance Breedon delivered another solid performance in the 10 months to 31 October 2017. Both volumes and revenues were ahead of the prior year, including a full 10-month contribution from the former Hope Construction Materials business, which was part of the Group for only three months in the corresponding period of 2016. Group sales volumes of aggregates increased by 47 per cent, asphalt by 2 per cent and concrete by 99 per cent. Our cement business is performing in line with our expectations1. Total Group revenue for the period increased by 56 per cent to approximately #561 million. Assuming normal weather conditions for the remainder of the financial year, the Group's underlying EBIT for the full year is expected to be in line with current market expectations2. Outlook Forecasters expect construction output to grow modestly in 2017 and remain broadly flat next year before returning to growth in 2019. More significantly for us, new infrastructure and housing work - which together account for approximately two-thirds of our end-use markets - are expected to show healthy growth over the next two years. We continue to invest in our business at record levels, which is yielding appreciable benefits in terms of enhanced performance and improved productivity. This organic improvement gives us confidence that we will make further progress in 2018. We will announce our preliminary results for the year ending 31 December 2017 on 7 March 2018. - ends - 1 In accordance with the Cement Market Data Order 2016, cement volumes are not disclosed. 2 The Group believes that current market expectations for underlying EBIT range from #74 million to #83 million.

Afrosia Can't remember who said it [ I have a life outside of this :) ] But to paraphrase - a company should only return money to shareholders as dividends when it can't make a better return for them by re-investing in the business. Yes, I like dividends and income, but prefer a better total return. That is what I have had from BREE over the years and expect to continue for some time yet. PE
