aishah: Small Cap Report: Flowgroup Share price: 21.5p (down 14.8% today) No. shares: 317.5m Market cap: £68.3m Results y/e 31 Dec 2015 - you know that any company releasing 2015 results now is going to be reporting awful figures, and that's very much the case here. These are really terrible figures. An increased operating loss of £17.1m, on turnover of £40.4m. The original product launch, of a new type of domestic boiler, flopped basically. Although possible changes to VAT rates didn't help. So it was withdrawn, and they're now trying to reduce the production cost, with the contract manufacturer Jabil. It is however noteworthy that Jabil, a substantial company, invested £7.4m in FLOW's last fundraising, a considerable indication of commitment. Balance sheet - if cash burn continues at a prodigious rate, then the company will need to do another fundraising. Will investors be quite so keen next time? I have my doubts. My opinion - the valuation here looks nuts, for a jam tomorrow company. A friend (who is an engineer) looked into the new boiler product, and told me a while ago that the claims made for it are questionable. In my view, FLOW has solved a problem that doesn't exist. I haven't really looked into its other business, as an alternative energy supplier. The overall picture is too poor to make me consider investing here. It's going on theBargepole List, due to the initial product launch not working, and the need for more cash. This type of share nearly always goes wrong in some way, leaving "believers" in the story nursing heavy losses. Maybe this time it's different? Why take the risk? - See more at: hxxp://www.stockopedia.com/content/small-cap-value-report-29-apr-2016-rtn-ffy-flow-129539/#sthash.SBd0gQJP.dpuf
moorsie2: paleje - I was saying predict the results not share price action..
paleje: IC had a small mention in their morning summary today:- Flowgroup (FLOW) has this morning announced its intention to roll out its electricity generating boilers in Italy. The company has signed a letter of intent with Trillary Srl, part of an Italian heating consortium, to trial the Flow boiler in the country – the third largest boiler market in Europe. The share price is up 5 per cent in early trading and we maintain our buy rating.
paleje: IC comment on Monday:- Last summer an EU Court of Justice ruling relating to the reduced VAT rate on green energy products hit the share price of Aim-traded Flowgroup (FLOW). The group was forced to announce that without this lower tax rate it would have to delay the launch of its electricity producing boiler, Flow mCHP. Ten months later the group seems to be back on track as it has announced that it will finally start to install its boilers this week. The announcement comes alongside more good news that the Flow mCHP has been awarded Microgeneration Certification Scheme accreditation. This means that electricity generated from the boiler will qualify for the government Feed-in Tariff scheme, which provides payments for the use of green electricity generation technologies in the home. Share-tip update: A few months of positive momentum has seen the share price rise 31 per cent since our buy tip (15p, 26 Nov 2015). This is exciting technology and we think there's more momentum left in the share price; at 20p we reiterate our buy rating.
1fox1: Hi Larry and uppompeii.... Yes it does seem a very loooooooong time ago. The next trading statement is due in two or three weeks. By the way the share price is going I'm hoping for more good news. Stiff should never have over-egged things in the first place. That caused the fall in share price when he didn't deliver on his promises.
larry335: Blah blah. The reason the share price halved related to that RNS was in the headline "Reduction of boiler installations for 2015". Actually Zero sales have occurred in 2015. And the reason given for that was the VAT issue. This is true :-) What I note is that in a 2014 Newsletter, it states clearly that MCS accreditation was expected end 2014. Then no news on that. To get the accreditation the boiler is tested to show that it produces electricity reliably to claim the FIT. The key component is the scroll. We know they had problems with the scroll...then a financing RNS and who is making the Scroll now?....Jabil I believe. There is still a risk related to the MCS accreditation. I'm not sure how to quantify it though because FlowGroup have given no information about the previous MCS accreditation test results. So, yes we have to assume they are confident it will meet the requirements. "In the past six months Jabil and Flow have worked well as a team in preparation for the Flow Boiler relaunch. Significant progress has been made in supply chain, resilience, logistics, design and cost."
johnwise: Flowgroup plc Five year contract with Shell RNS Number : 4343I Tony Stiff, CEO of Flowgroup, commented: "We believe today's announcement could lead to a significant increase in the Company's revenue, cashflow and value prospects and also provide a readymade route to market for the Company's electricity-generating Flow boiler, as well as the broader range of energy products the Company intends to offer to its customers." http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/flowgroup-plc-FLOW/share-news/Flowgroup-plc-Five-year-contract-with-Shell/69633588
123qwer: Don't say I don't try to help A few minutes ago, brill article in the Money mail - should give the share price a rocket on Monday imo. However, I am still expecting 25p buy in poss January’s winners and losers The JIC Portfolio was up 0.8 per cent in the month lagging the return of the wider market. Since inception In January 2012 the JIC Portfolio has returned 92.1 per cent which compares favourably with the 40.9 per cent total return of the FTSE All Share Index. The biotech/healthcare theme, about which I have been keen for some time, was the best area of performance, with the Biotech Growth Trust up 14.0 per cent, Worldwide HealthCare Trust up 9.1 per cent and Bioventix, a holding bought last October, up 10.3 per cent. Airline easyJet gained 11.4 per cent on the back of a strong quarterly trading update which led to a number of analysts upgrading forecasts and Vislink reacted well to an announcement of a tie-up with GoPro to enable high definition ‘live’ transmission of video from GoPro cameras. At the other end of the table, Crawshaw dropped 28 per cent on a trading update which was not strong enough to encourage new buyers, especially given a valuation which was anticipating some of the expected growth from its national rollout over the coming years. Gem Diamonds, another disappointment, dropped 19 per cent on the Chief Executive’s warning that diamond price weakness was likely to continue into the first quarter of 2015. Buying into US small companies and potentially revolutionary boilers I introduced some exposure to US smaller companies by adding a 4 per cent holding in JP Morgan US Smaller Companies Investment Trust, on the 2nd January at 174.5p. My rationale was that US smaller companies, having underperformed the wider market for most of last year, were playing catch up and with the US economy performing well could have a better year in 2015. Additionally I was happy to increase my exposure to the US dollar against sterling ahead of the UK General Election in May. I chose this particular trust as it has a pretty good medium and long term record against its benchmark, the Russell 2000, and its peer group. Towards the end of the month I added a new holding in Flowgroup, (between 23rd and 28th January at an average price of 39.2p). It was poorly timed! It has just launched a fully patented micro combined heat and power gas boiler. It is designed to replace existing domestic boilers and at the same time as providing heating it generates electricity thus saving consumers around £500 per annum on their fuel bills. The technology that Flowgroup has developed allows them to build a much simpler and thus cheaper CHP boiler than competitor offerings. It also has a compelling consumer proposition where the boiler is provided for just the cost of installation as long as the customer signs up to buy dual fuel from Flowgroup for five years. The finance is provided on a non-secured basis by peer-to-peer lender Zopa; the monthly savings on fuel pay off the loan. The potential is huge but successful implementation of its strategy is, as always, key. I added to a number of existing holdings; European Assets Trust, Crawshaw, Vislink, Interserve, BlackRock World Mining and Avation. I took my profits in Jupiter Fund Management in order to fund my purchase of JP Morgan US Smaller Companies, in Laird, where I was less than convinced by its trading statement and in Ted Baker where, as much as I love the company, I felt the 40 per cent move up since last August had left the valuation looking a little stretched. Why I like investment trusts By adding JP Morgan US Smaller Companies I now hold seven investment trust among my 29 holdings comprising 35.5 per cent of the portfolio by value. I have long been a fan of investment trusts as a way of gaining exposure to a theme, (biotech and mining for instance) or geographic regions where I do not have the expertise to pick stocks myself. One can often invest when the share price stands at a discount to net asset value with the expectation of the discount closing and in some cases moving to a premium; for example two trusts I hold, Fidelity Asian Values and BlackRock World Mining currently stand at discounts of more than 10 per cent and in the latter’s case, only a year ago it stood at a premium. The total annual charges on investment trusts are, in general, lower than with Open Ended Investment Companies, or funds as they are more commonly referred to. Finally, an Oeic manager has what might seem a ‘nice’ problem; when there are lots of new buyers of his fund he has lots of new cash to invest. This however, might lead to him being forced to buy stocks that no longer look attractive, thus driving the price up. Conversely, when flows move the other way, either due to a market correction or poor performance, the manager is forced to sell stocks to meet redemptions, thus driving the price down further. That is partly why towards the end of a ‘bear’ market you see stocks, especially less liquid smaller companies, being sold when the valuations look ludicrously cheap. The manager is being forced to sell! The manager of an investment trust however, has a stable portfolio to manage without daily inflows and outflows which I believe leads to better long term performance. Volatility in markets and individual stocks has picked up this year and it is difficult to see this skittish backdrop abating in the short term. Nevertheless, I can’t help feeling that some or all of the cash being printed by the ECB and the Japanese Central Bank will find its way into equity markets providing a decent amount of support, as will the boost to company profits from the lower oil price; increased demand and lower costs.

123qwer: Good morning dear Larry335 and Cyberhub Thank you Larry and IMO Cyberhub has kindly answered the question. To summarise - (Importantly, and on the whole, posters/investors on this thread appear to be nice people and I wish them luck) First heard of Flowgroup a few months back via Daily Mail article, thought it was too goo to be true. Failed to join at about 30p at the time I think. Flowgroup, the product is real, tested, priced, trialled, and now on the market. This is very good progress for an AIM stock as usally most AIM stocks are run by crooks and built on hope and more hope where the small investors/mugs line the pockets of the BoD's, but not in Flows case IMO. The Share price drop: The other day and around about the time of the realse of the boiler, share price crashed to 31p, why?? Any answers please? The competition: A fantastic ariticel on iii and im my case stopped me from investing in Flow last week (do a google search for iii and Flow for the aritcle( The aritcle mentions British Gas re-joning the fray. Concerns re FIT. Concerns re other boiler makers not sitting on their hands if success is seen. IMO, Flows CHP will soon be bettered by the likes of BR/ Baxi etc. Flows boiler has many limitations. I have concerns re the durability of the boiler is yet to be tested and like new model cars, faults may arise once in the market. I have concerns re installations costs being mentioned on this thread of 1800 pounds (pls correct me if i'm wrong) which are a lot higher than combi boilers like for like change over. I have cconcerns re price of boiler when compared to standard combi boilers I have concerns re warranty period of two yrs as opposed to many offering 5 and now 7 yrs. I have concerns that most people in the south of the uk as warmer climate wont generate enough energy to make it cost effective with FIT in place and what if the FIT is reduced or removed as I for one do not trust governments. I have major concerns tha tthe boiler only produces eletric when boiler is on or hot water. In my home, we have an eletric shower and heating is on for about 4 months of the year on average - even in winter as our home is south facing with large windows, heat is not usally on when sun is out even in the winter. About showers, my finding show that at least 50% of the people I know have electric showers the others cobi boiler connections and they may be in the shower for 5 mins. My conclusion: Based on the above is that Flowgroup is one of the few in AIM market that appears to be a genuine company with a genuine product. Flowgroup has done the donkey work and IMO another big company will soon have a more cost effective, user friendly product in the market with a great warranty period. The combi boilers can be bought and installed like for like less than a thousand quind in many many cases and often 5 and now 7 year warranties. Therefore I will not buy until close to 20p for a possible dead cat bounce and then quick in and out then see share price drift south and then at much lower prices than now, a takeover by anoth co that will build on Flowgroups success. As it stands, Flow has done well but not well eneough and if I had held shares, I'd sell out around these prices. The above is my own research and opinions and I could be wrong or correct so do your own research and if share price spikes, I wish you guys the best and big profits. (Broker targets, I usally LOL at them rarely do they get it right and often a vested interest)
megabear: Broker note from earlier: Flowgroup# (FLOW LN) – Share price move creates opportunity Buy 35.25p Key Points: Since release of its shareholder newsletter on Monday, Flowgroup’s shares have fallen dramatically. The company has now put out a statement confirming that they are not aware of any reason for the share price fall. Likewise we can see nothing in the newsletter or in the wider market to justify the weakness in the shares. One thing that may be causing some confusion is the launch price of the boiler and the finance package. If a customer goes down the finance route the overall cost will be £4,529.89. However, if they also switch supply to Flow and sign over the feed-in-tariff for five years, which would be normal under the finance route, then they will see a reduction in their home energy bill of £4,800 over that period. There is perhaps a suggestion in the market that this is an insufficient gain to attract customers. That would be to miss a key point – the customer also gets a brand new boiler. The target market, which Flow has signalled at 480,000 per annum, is principally concerned with replacing an existing boiler. Flow is offering to replace that boiler effectively for nothing and give the customer a financial upside. That should be very attractive and drive sales going forward. With 10,000 notes of interest ahead of the launch, the company appears well positioned to build material sales in 2015.
