  • Morgans was pleased to host its 33rd Annual Queensland Conference featuring 42 companies across a broad cross-section of the economy.
  • This year’s conference highlighted the myriad of opportunities and threats facing corporate Australia. As the business cycle turns, companies are looking at acquisitions and technology to grow. Many presentations focused on the AI opportunity, which is expected to drive productivity and speed up product development. At the same time, Geopolitical risks in the Middle East weighed heavily on the travel sector and investor sentiment. 
  • Strong updates from high-value spend (CTD, FLT, MVF, HLO) contrast with lower value (UNI, BBN, SLH) and highlight corporate Australia's challenges as the impact of higher interest rates hit households unevenly.
  • Other common themes included cost control and environmental sustainability. 
  • Our conference key picks include CTD, APE, HUB, MP1, QAL, MVF, DGL, AND.
