cfro: Must be close to new all time highs here? I agree too that the WH Ireland forecasts are on the low side. Plenty of opportunity throughout the year for the company to continue to release 'ahead' statements. Despite the increased share price the forward pe is still likely to be attractive given the conservative forecasts.
loobrush: Great news-seems to me they are very excited indeed and the company is usually very conservative. If they keep getting orders at this rate-share price could easily double again within a year or so.
johnwise: LPA Group PLC Final Results RNS Number : 5099M 21 January 2016 Peter Pollock, Chief Executive, comments: "The recovery started in earnest at the end of the third quarter and has accelerated since. The first quarter of the current year has been particularly strong, exceeding our internal expectations. We are benefitting from the excellent order entry previously announced during the year, which is now translating into sales growth. "We have been advised that the revenue threshold for the payment of an overage arising from the housing development of the Group's former property at Tudor Works Saffron Walden has been exceeded and an exceptional gain of GBP587,000 net of costs has been recognised for the year ended 30 September 2015. The funds are expected to be received by the end of March 2016. "Order entry remains strong, and has exceeded sales during the early months of the current year as orders are placed for projects for which we have previously been selected and new business is won. "We look forward to significantly improved progress this year and for the future."
stewy_18: Yes, it only needs a small slice of the £35 billion Network rail spend to make a huge impact. I was expecting 2014 to be the year, having been invested since 2012. That didn't happen and it doesn't look like it will this year either, but sentiment will change before the contracts come in. I learnt 3 things here. - Don't get emotionally involved with a share (in my case negatively). Try and base everything on facts. The order book looks good, but I will need more before information before I invest here again. - Don't talk to management (although I am grateful for Hastings feedback above:)) . I'm more and more convinced this got me into trouble. Why should we talk to management? Everything should be clearly laid out in results and brokers notes. It is very easy to imply and insinuate things in a private mail or in a meeting. It is what is in the RNS that counts. This has got me in trouble in the past on more than one occasion. - I'm in no rush to get back in. Yes, the share price may rise, but I'm convinced there will be more buying opportunities, especially after the interims. You could argue that they are an RNS away from a mega contract. I would argue that if something mega was on the horizon, they would have spoke about it in the analyst meeting. I think the possibility is there, but they are not there yet. I think this company has good products and I don't think it is a million miles away from taking off. But it looks like my calculations were two years out. I was expecting 20+ million revenues by 2015. By 2017? Who knows. I will be watching from the sidelines for now. Best of luck. Stuart
castleford tiger: 2017/2018 SHARE PRICE STARTS WITH A 5 based on profits of 4 million a year. see what comes out of todays meeting. tiger
tarnlorn: Gucci probably a wise decision. The only folks that make money out of this company are the directors. Don't take my word for it. Look through the time since PP started and add up the salaries the board have taken and compare with the share price growth,or the lack of it and the dividends distributed. I know which side I of that equation I would like to be on.
stewy_18: Good luck guys, Very quiet Q1 is a given, Q2 uncertain. I will sit on the sidelines for now. They may have a strong second half. But is it enough to get them up to £20 million revenues, where operational gearing comes into play? I'm not sure. Forecasts certainly don't seem to. EPS forecasts for 2015 and 2016 are 4.4 pence and 7.6 pence respectively. So if you believe the figures it could be cheap. There are three things that really irk me about this company. Firstly, why the sell off before the results? To me that stank of a friends and family exit! Secondly, after contacting Peter Pollock directly, I received very bullish mails about the future and that they were on track to meet forecasts. They were a whisker away from having to issue a profit warning so I was not please about that. Thirdly and finally, the released a very bullish trading statement this time last year implying an order run rate of £24 million. This is terribly misleading and that is what caused the share price to spike at 140 pence last year. The reason I bought into this share was the LED growth. I was hoping that would be the primary revenue generator in the next couple of years. This part of the business has stalled a bit. I also thought the franchising hiatus with network rail would well and truly be over but that has had impact not only on 2014 but Q1 2015 as well. In short, I have no confidence in management. That is the last time I will try to contact management directly as it really doesn't give you a good indication on how the business is running. I got sucked in here and then got spat out when the results were delivered. Not saying this is not a good entry point, but beware of management bravado. Hard facts needed before I invest here again. I expect the interim's to be pretty poor based on the statement of a quiet Q1. I may look to re-enter then, but to be honest, I'm not really sure LPA fits what I am looking for in an investment now. All the best Stuart
meijiman: Yes I think you should sit this out and await on events. The orders are lumpy and obviously if you are not running at 100% there are overheads to carry. have to agree that a quiet board is often a good sign. There must be a PHD waiting for someone to do a study on this. I would wager that there is a strong inverse correlation between noise (no of posts) and share price performance.
stewy_18: Hmm. So they have done £18.5 million until end of September. Final results around 23rd Jan. When is the close period? Anyone know? Has there been any revision updates in the broker notes? Not sure I can get too excited by this. I would have expected an "we will exceed expectations" footnote with this statement. Still, it will be interesting to see if they can break £20 million this year. Peter Pollock commented:- "We have set ourselves a number of major challenges to achieve and have made good progress so far. These new contracts and further investment planned at Light and Power House and our LED lighting facility should put the Group in a stronger position to exploit opportunities in the future." Not an overly confident statement. I think we are looking at 2016 for the sweet spot. Market not sure what to make of it either. Share price all over the place today.
stewy_18: Hi Oregano, Good analysis. Just a few comments. I would rather the management team were more cautious. I think everyone expected the earnings to be significantly higher than it was based on their August trading update. It was not the case. I'm not advocating buying or selling these shares. But what I have noticed is that the LPA share price responds sharply to positive or negative news. Not buying the shares before H1 implies there will be no other news between now and the end of H1. I do agree however, there is a chance that the interim statement might be a bit weak. With a PE of just under 12, I wouldn't call the shares expensive. By my analysis they already have approximately £11-£13 million on the order book for this year (see above link). It will indeed be interesting to see if they can replicate or better £18 million revenue this year. If the LED division can grow at 60% a year (like last year), LPA will look very cheap. It really isn't clear to me however if this is possible. For this reason, I will hold for the next few years and see what happens. Best of luck Stuart
