IMS did not move the share price could be because stock has held up quite well in the recent market down turn. Could be 101 things who knows? still a cracking share imho.

Colin Day, chief executive of Filtrona, reluctantly accepts that his £1.3 billion company is a type of conglomerate. When such beasts as Hanson Trust and Williams Holdings last stalked the corporate jungle, they were indeed collections of seemingly unconnected businesses; Filtrona contains within it a maker of cigarette filters and one providing labels on drugs and healthcare products, and again, it is hard to see much connection between these. However, making cigarette filters is a strongly defensive business, as is making cigarettes themselves, and provides excellent cashflow, from a market growing at 11 to 12 per cent a year, as Filtrona wins market share and smokers in emerging territories switch to more sophisticated brands. The market supplying pharmaceutical products is likewise growing by 8 or 9 per cent a year, driven by the usual demographics: an ageing population and more sophisticated healthcare in those emerging markets. Regulation is increasing the amount of information consumers must be given. Mr Day says Filtrona, spun out of Bunzl when the latter decided to devote itself purely to distribution, is in essence a maker of foam, fibre, filter and plastic products that are high volume, relatively low value, and essential. He has placed a further bet on those pharmaceuticals markets with the £160 million purchase from private equity of Contego Healthcare, a UK company that provides print and packaging. This is the biggest deal so far for a business more inclined to small bolt-ons and is funded by means of a placing of new shares equivalent to almost 10 per cent of the issued share capital. Filtrona had tended to fund smaller deals out of debt but had always made it clear that anything significant would be funded by fresh equity. The market had no qualms; the placing went through without a hitch at 675p, a premium to the price in the market at the time, and Filtrona shares ended 28p ahead at 690½p. The business being acquired has lower margins than the division it is joining, there are plenty of cost savings available, and Contego products can be sold to Filtrona's existing customers and vice-versa. It looks like a textbook deal. Filtrona has ambitious plans but is already just short of a share price target set only two years ago. The shares sell on almost 19 times this year's earnings, which looks high, but farther progress looks assured in due course. Buy on any weakness.

Fundamentals look good for Filtrona. Also looking at the weekly chart MACD Histogram looks like it is just entering a new trend ticking upward and EMA based on a 26 week (half year) also trending higher, so share price looks set to rise for a little while yet, with luck.

EI In terms of cash flow ps - which is one of the main kpis I watch - I'm happy to look at gross rather than net.

Agree, the general market pullback has forced me to add to my holding after a good set of results.

I think the share price is taking a battering due to market pullback. Very nice results and other news released this morning. Don't think that has been factored in at all yet. I'll wait for the bottom of this pull back (poss around 580?) and then dive in.

Ah I see. They quote free cash flow as being net of working capital, tax and interest. I calculate it as being before those items.
