19-Feb-2018 – 24.5p – £98.8m – PER 340.3
Trading Update For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Expected to be ahead of market expectations. Revenue of $106m (up 17%), EBITDA of $7m (benefit of $5.6m from property sale) versus $2.8m last time.
I am just not interested here for a number of reasons including location, no real profit update and the reliance, it seems, on property sales for profits!
5-Mar-2018 – 26p – £104.8m – PER 358.1
Results For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Revenue up 18.5% to $107.1m (2016: $90.4m), EPS is positive at 0.06¢ (2016: 0.27¢ loss per share).
The CEO describes this as a “turnaround year” (I guess on the basis EPS is positive for the first time) and says they are entering 2018 in a stronger position than last year. There’s not enough here for me at present.

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – Looks good and due to a substantially higher year end Order book 2019 Revenue and EBITDA already expected to be ahead of market expectations.
Still seems to be heading in the right direction, I will be keeping an eye out for revised Broker notes here – Would be hopeful that PER looks more realistic now!
