17-Jul-2018 – 184.99p – £141.5m – PER 15.7

Trading Update For The 6 Months To End June 2018 – Strong start, trading in-line.

A new one for me and I quite like it – Very tempted to take an initial position, if I don’t it will go on the Watchlist.

11-Sep-2018 – 177p – £134.9m – PER 13.5

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2018 – Maiden results are in-line – Revenueup 13.7% to £24.2m (H1 2017: £21.3m), Adjusted PBT up 60.8% to £4.5m, Adjusted EPSup 61.7% to 4.68p, Net Debt down from £1.6m at date of listing to Net Cash of £1.2m and a Maiden Interim Dividend of 0.98p will be paid (covering 9 months).

Tempting – Still quite like this and it remains on my Watchlist.

Subsequent note: Bought in here on the 24th October 2018. On a PER of about 20 there’s 50% & 20% or so EPS growth forecast for 2018E & 2019E respectively. There’s Cash and a maiden Dividend forecast for 2018E (about 1.5%). ROCE (20%+) & Op Margin (10%+) are both well above Industry medians – I see a 2 year price target of about 300p (without any upgrades).

5-Mar-2019 – 180.5p – £138m – PER 14

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – Profits exceed expectations – Revenue up 15% with Adjusted PAT up 61.6%, Adjusted EPS up 28.2% and Net Debt of £1.6m is not Net Cash of £6.4m.

I remain Long here and these results mean I am likely to continue to do so for now.
