2-Feb-2018 – 690p – £90.9m – PER 7.46

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – In-line with Revenue marginally ahead of expectations and Net Debt position also better than expected. Reflecting continued confidence in underlying cash flows and the longer-term prospects for the Group the total FY Dividend will beincreased 10% YoY, in line with existing guidance. Confident of delivering substantial growth in revenue and EBITDA in 2018.

Quite attracted by this, the main thing putting me off is the poor Operating Margin. Will remain Neutral here for now.

19-Mar-2018 – 820p – £116.4m – PER 9.55

Final Results For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Revenue up 23% to £133.1m (2016: £108.3m), Gross Profit up 11% to £38.8m (2016: £34.9m), Basic EPS up 36% to 21.7p (2016: 16.0p) but Adjusted EPS is down 14% to 66.7p (2016: 78.0p), partially as a result of the increased number of shares in issue following the issue of new equity for an acquisition in May 2016, Net Debt is £27.7m. FY Dividend to be 33.8p (2016: 30.8p), an increase of 10% on the prior year.

I’m middle of the road here on this one. Doesn’t look too bad but that Net Debt and low Operating Margin leaves me sitting it out for now.
