Great business with lumpy contracts . Results slightly down but in line for year so a good opportunity to buy in to the growth story . Earnings like y to rise from 60p to 66p and 85p next year . Large customers are v exciting for the new combined group as they're competing with the likes of expensive BT whom they can beat every time . Bought in at £3 and can see mid- teens in 2-3 years due to earnings growth . Large ownership by top quality management and investing in rights issues ought to tell you something . Ticks all my Boxes. Use the weakness to buy in

Not too impressed by this morning's results so I have banked my profits. The new acquisition appears to be going well but the existing business is stalling a bit.

From memory I believe they said they hope to pay debt down to 1x ebitda by end of 2017

nfs On the contrary, in the latest results Maintel clearly spelt out a progressive dividend policy: "It is the Board's current intention to increase the dividend per share by 5% and 10% for the financial years ending 31 December 2016 and 31 December 2017, respectively."

I suspect that the dividend growth will be halted until they get the debt down

Having a look here. Any comments on the gearing? With £36m more debt for the acquisition and further debt available the gearing will be well over 200%, and paying a dividend. That does not make sense to me. The balance sheet looks very poor with intangibles stripped out. Somewhat de-risked by the previous good cash generation though What am I missing?

Imp Thx for your calculations. I suspect Maintel won't be happy with profits of 1.1m on sales of £100m .there must be much more to come. After all it's the same market that they operate in but twice the size. Since Mai make 11% on sales you would assume Azzuri should be making similar levels. With the large commitment of private funds from the 2 founders I would be surprised if the upside wasn't much greater than all the forecasts.

"Buffetteer 9 Apr'16 - 12:06 - 138 of 140 1 0 Imp 835p seems still far too cheap.probably worth that before the takeover. The directors have put their hands in their pockets for many millions . The savings will be £4.7m at least" Morning Buffetteer. It certainly looks a fantastic deal if the cost savings come through as predicted. Just adding the two companies' accounts together (admittedly not covering the same 12 month period) gives a combined profit of: Maintel £4.1m + Azzurri £1.1m = £5.2m + cost saving say £3.7m (£4.7m less 20% Corporation Tax relief)= £8.9m. This would be a massive uplift on Maintel's own profits of £4.1m.

Imp 835p seems still far too cheap.probably worth that before the takeover. The directors have put their hands in their pockets for many millions . The savings will be £4.7m at least The management have proven skills in this industry having grown earnings nearly 17% per annum while returning nearly 30% Roce for many years. Conclusion It should be valued on s market premium of at least 15x and more importantly worth keeping as this exciting story unfolds. Clearly their aspirations are substantial and the market will wake up to it sooner rather than later.

Excellent reaction. Pleased I managed to add 1000 on a limit order at £7.35 shortly after the return. Anyone seen revised forecasts?

"hugodscott 8 Apr'16 - 14:40 - 135 of 135 0 0 Most significantly, the three largest shareholding directors took up their subscriptions in the placing, committing £7 million between them. That is quite a vote of confidence!" Well, yes, but you would hope the directors would have confidence in the deal they have done. On the other hand £7m between 3 directors is quite a lot of money to find!!

I was intrigued by this from one of this morning's many RNSs: ""Eddie Buxton, Chief Executive of Maintel, commented: "This is a highly complementary and transformational acquisition..."" Having done a bit of digging on the Companies House website I can see why "transformational" has been used. Maintel's revenues for the year to 31/12/15, announced today, was £50.6m. Azzurri's revenue for the year to 30/6/15 was £101.2m. So Azzurri's revenue, based on the latest completed accounting year, is exactly double that of Maintel. In other words this acquisition may treble Maintel's revenue. Profit after tax is a different matter. Maintel £4.1m, Azzurri £1.1m. A very interesting deal and I hope Maintel aren't biting off more than they can chew.

"Buffetteer 8 Apr'16 - 10:45 - 131 of 131 0 0 Finncap updated price target to 1150p -shame were excluded from the placing !" I wondered if your early morning silence meant that you were unable to comment until the placing was concluded! Obviously not then. That's a pity. Will be interesting to see what level the shares open at when the the suspension is lifted.
