12-Dec-2017 – 205p – £37.4m – PER 11.2

Trading Update For The Year Ending November 2017 – In-line, Revenue flat, PBT up 10%. Cash is up from £2.2m to £3.9m.

Not sure this is “in-line” but there’s still quite a lot to like here, except that Spread of 10% or so. Will have a further look at this.

20-Feb-2018 – 200p – £35.6m – PER 10.6

Results For The 12 Months To End November 2017 – In-line with expectations, R&D spend this year means expectations are broadly flat. A bit of a The Good, The Bad and The Ugly update for me. PBT, EPS and Dividend being the Good, the flat Revenue and Year End Order Book being the Bad and the outlook being the Ugly!

I just think there’s better companies out there to be investing in than this, Neutral for now.

17-Jul-2018 – 213p – £37.9m – PER 12.1

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End May 2018 – Revenue up 3% to £34.7m (2017: £33.7m), Order book up 18%, PBT up 12% to £1.5m (2017: £1.3m), Diluted EPS 5.9p (2017: 6.1p), Strong cash generation and net cash of £9.1m at 31 May 2018 (2017: £1.8m), Interim dividend increased to 1.2p (2017: 1.0p). FY to be in-line.

Quite like these results (and Stockpedia likes the stock, StockRank 95) but I still can’t be tempted to press the buy button here.

29-Nov-2018 – 190p – £33.8m – PER 9.80

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End November 2018 – PBT expected to be broadly in-line (below then!), Cash expected to be £6.5m (£3.8m last time) – Restructuring expected to be circa £2m, resulting in a positive contribution in FY 2019.

Stockopedia likes this more than I do (StockRank 97) at present.
