Trading Update For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – In-line with Cash at £13.6m versus £11.1m last time.
Almost doubled in the past 12 months. Wish I’d spotted it back then when it was reasonably priced, looks expensive now to me.

Final Results For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Revenues up 20% to £29.2m (2016: £24.3m), PBT up 27% to £3.4m (2016: £2.7m), Diluted EPS up by 13% to 14.17p (2016: 12.58p). NetCash £13.6m (2016: £11.1m) and the total Dividend is 18% up on last year, 6.5p. Optimistic about the outlook, potential issues being FX and raw material prices.
I quite like this and I think if the outlook was a little more optimistic I would be more interested. For now I will remain Neutral.
