|still along way to go, if you deduct the disposal revenues etc, this is still a very new, albeit growing company....IMO will be interesting first to see how market reacts|
|Very good news there - much more focus and losses stemmed.
BUY for me.|
|Playful, Yes aware of ALT and you are correct to mention similarities in position. They too made significant savings in expenditure but they are far more focused in their market than APC. Component Distribution, Energy saving and Water is hardly focus IMO but agree that it will not take much to move the share price I have held APC stock for at least 10 years and as you can imagine, well under water but still hopeful that this may change in the not too distant future. Would just like to see a little more information of substance coming out of the Company. TU this week? A bit ambitious Playful but anything is possible I guess.|
Have you looked at TST? It looks like the sort of outfit you'd be interested in. Ian Martin seems like to sort of CEO you'd warm to - I've not met him but his written comments seem solid.|
|Rinson, Lets hope you are correct and with a little patience we should see some upward momentum in the share price and perhaps we might see our TU this week which may hopefully include some positive news.
APC reminds me of ALT when they were in a similar position a couple of years ago and you can see I said the very same things on that thread and what price are they today?
Too many folks are focused on short term gains, simply let your seeds grow. I remember someone that bought almost 3% of CRAW and sold for a 20% return but his holding actually would have gone onto increase 4,000% he was in ALT too but you can bet he made the same mistake.|
I wonder if APC will get the contract to supply and fit any recommendations that come from the survey. If they do maybe Thorpe Park, Alton Towers, Chessington World of Adventures and Warwick Castle will be next - all owned by Merlin Entertainments.
I wonder why there was no RNS for this from the Company? Lack of information and indications of a successful year end are holding the share price back IMHO.|
|We are lighting up Blackpool Tower...
The owners of Blackpool Tower have launched a trial to cut down on how much water and electricity they use.
Merlin Entertainments has appointed Minimise Solutions to complete a three-month water and energy efficiency review of the iconic site.
As part of the trial, a real-time monitoring system has been linked to both water and electricity meters to collect data from specific facilities across the entire estate, including a cinema and food areas.
Through this, Minimise Solutions will identify potential savings and recommend upgrades such as energy efficient LED lighting, water-saving toilet flushes, modern hand dryers and waterless urinals.
Water boilers around the site will also be inspected and optimised following the review.
Water and electricity equipment will continue to be monitored following the upgrades to compare the difference in efficiency and help plan upgrades elsewhere.|
|Brownie: Yes 10p. Every time we are within spitting distance it drops back. A trading update would be good post year-end and as you say may allay any fears concerning Brexit. However the share price is fairly stable so no one is running for the exit just yet and no profit warnings of late. Its been a long time since a meaningful RNS and hopefully we won't have to wait until the F16 report before we get an update. If we do, I do not imagine we will see much movement in the share price|
|What do you think the glass ceiling is, 10p?
I'm not sure we will test it until we get some news flow. I'd like to see a trading update which comments on demand post Brexit and any effects on the business, ie the pound has slipped thus components that are imported will be more expensive. Has his affected trading margins?|
|At last some honesty in the SP! I wonder if it will test that glass ceiling again?|
|Geraldus et al: I don't know how many brokers trade APC but I imagine that the extreme prices quoted define the bid and offer numbers. That indicates someone does not want to sell but probably happy to buy hoping to flush out nervous investors. Today probably 50/50. Would be good if any brokers reading this would give an explanation rather than my uneducated reasoning.|
|Agree rinson,false market and reflects badly on Aim.All my buys shown as sells below displayed mid price.|
|RNS: CEO converts share option 125,000 shares. Must be confident years performance will achieve targets or money down the drain.
Funny how the share price has not changed for a couple of weeks. It is impossible to tell buys from sells. This should not be allowed!|
|Had some of these today,the prices displayed on ADVFN are way off the mark,certainly wont encourage buyers.Should be due news soon.|
|Todays Daily Mail beefing up the case against Hinkley. Nothing to do with espionage, just considered unnecessary with the move to alternate energy. Some days Portugal's energy requirements are totally met by solar and wind! The faster UK switches to lower energy usage the better and that means lots of opportunities for APC with energy audits and subsequent LED lighting installations.|
|Philjeans: I suspect all of those 'sells' today are buys - I wonder why they don't want us to know that?|
|Picked up 50k - seems a good time to lock away a few.|
|They should have announced via a specific RNS on the admittance of shares via the company news feed instead of this non-APC RNS
Some people had no idea they had actually been admitted.|
|Cantor Fitzgerald reiterate BUY and 20p target|
|APC Technology Group PLC (AIM: APC), the provider of technologies and services intended to help improve organisational sustainability and specialist distributor of electronic components, has signed an agreement to be a UK partner for the launch of the Gooee Internet of Things (IoT) lighting ecosystem.
The Gooee ecosystem provides sensing, control and communication components through a scalable framework that integrates with a cloud platform to connect lighting manufacturers to the IoT. It significantly increases control, monitoring and data analysis capabilities while driving performance and efficiency improvements.
Under the agreement APC Technology Group PLC will be able to use Gooee's new lighting ecosystem to expand its offering, providing additional functionality and value to customer lighting and IoT solutions.
Richard Hodgson, Chief Executive of APC Technology Group PLC, commented:
"I am delighted to announce our partnership with Gooee. The Gooee system puts lighting at the heart of a building's IoT, providing new opportunities to monitor LED performance, track footfall and communicate directly with occupants.
We believe these factors will be of significant interest to many of our customers, in particular those in the retail, commercial property and industrial sectors, enabling them to operate more efficiently and effectively and ultimately deliver cost savings."|
|Well placing price is significant higher than last time.
Plus this plugs a gap and if the company really have the opportunities ahead of it that the Internet of Things brings then it makes sense. Caveat as long as this is the last one.
It de risks the company going forward IMHO.|
|It is called bluffing.|
|This was always on the cards and predictable:
kemche - 31 May 2016 - 10:54:05 - 354 of 398
As at August 2015: Net current assets = £8.2m, Net current liabilities = £11.1m, shortfall = £2.9m. At the time, Simon = "the company does not need funding", CF = "the company does not need funding".
February 2016: The company = "yes we do need funding". "Can we have £1.2m please?"
May 31 2016 (for February 2016 accounts):Net current assets = £8.7m, Net current liabilities = £12.0m, shortfall = £3.3m. At the time, Simon = "the company does not need funding", CF = "the company does not need funding", the company: "The Board is mindful of the constraints on the Company's growth of the Company's working capital position but is confident that, with the CONTINUED SUPPORT OF ITS STAKEHOLDERS, the business will deliver profitable growth in future periods and is trading in line with market expectations for the current fiscal year."
Note that the shortfall is NOW HIGHER than at the year-end - AND THAT IS AFTER THE £1.2 FUNDRAISING in February 2016.
That is all from a non professional amateur cursory reading of the accounts which may be completely wrong. Those CF boys no doubt know what they are doing :)|
