I thought there might be some value here after the latest price fall, so have updated my valuation model. I set a target PE ratio of 7, to allow for the recent record of underdelivery and the very questionable management competence. After adjusting for excess cash, debt, in-the money options and tax (but not for the RDW acquisition), I get a target price of 23.6p. Hence I'm staying well out.

The adverse cash flow in the last set of interims was mainly due to a big increase in trade receivables. To the extent that this reverts to a more normal level, there will be a corresponding cash inflow in due course. The concern is that the interims don't give any indication as to why this line item has reached an historical peak; is there is a risk that there will be an issue with collecting all of those receivables?

The Shuffle Man - I'm mildly concerned, which is why I'll wait for FY to get a clearer picture. The indication from interims was not positive: -- Net cash used in operating activities GBP2.9m (2015: net cash generated GBP2.8m) -- Net debt, consisting of our working capital facility which we use to finance fluctuations in contractor levels, and cash increased during the period to GBP9.9m (2015: GBP6.9m) a 40% jump in debt levels, could well be a fluctuation, but it's a big one. Given instis are not buying (AFAIK) I suspect a funding round/instrument may be under discussion. The future is bright, but would be better to have cash in reserve to weather any storm.

Am watching, progress on cost savings sounds good, but they run on empty in terms of cash reserves which is a concern. I suspect the profit warning with subsequent price decline may be a precursor to a fundraise, could be wrong - as they haven't highlighted cash as an issue.

Agreed. Restructuring should now deliver returns over the medium term. Derisory mkt cap and PSR. Strong hold or add on weakness for me.

Paul Scott has tipped these following todays results - he reckons they are oversold at these levels - here's an extract from his newsletter today:- "Revised forecasts - the latest numbers coming through this morning suggest that adjusted profit will be £3.6m this year (down from £4.2m), and EPS 6.9p instead of 8.5p. The market cap of just £11.1m looks ridiculous for a company that should make £3.6m, in a bad year. Balance sheet - has a huge debtor book, partly funded by debt. The latest broker note suggests that cash generation is good at the moment - debt tends to unwind at companies like this, as business contracts. So they're saying £7.0m net debt at year end. Overall the last balance sheet looked OK to me. My opinion - fishing for bargains at bombed out companies which have warned on profits, can often be a depressing, and unprofitable activity. However, at this level, I think ITQ is probably at or near the lows. It's finances look alright, and the PER is now dirt cheap. Plus it's paying a divi, and even if that is reduced, is still a nice bonus. Recruitment in the IT sector seems an activity that's not going away. Personally I think this could be a nice little recovery trade from the current price, with a target of maybe 50p - which would still only be a PER of about 7-8 times the revised forecasts put out today. Yet that would be a 67% gain from today's price. I think that's quite a good punt."

I don't think so and I have stuck with it even though I have been burnt both by the huge fall (thanks Brexit).The BOD are getting to grips with the problem and I agree that this share has been oversold, although I certainly understand why some investors lost confidence. Another reason to support my view is that despite the news, there has not been a large drop in the share price so far today and larva, if it drops to 20p, let alone 16p without more news, I'll be buying like mad.

Tinasilverfox - I have to agree. Personally picked up a good wedge at 36p as I see that as far too low. Pardon the cliche but MMs are most certainly after shares as one can only pick up around 3k GBP worth @37p but easily offload 10K GBP @36p. I'll be holding on to mine until they significantly re-rate and with the small number of shares in free float it shouldn't take much to get back to 50-60p.

Was going to take a nibble at 40 but will wait and see if there is support. Given the relatively upbeat news from other recruiters I guess the problems here are largely self inflicted so it will take time to see if they can sort them out.

Debt is about two thirds of the market cap. Is this sustainable?
