|tiredoldbroker: Wakey, wakey, Chancre, you lieing little cretin. So much for your post 572 "possible swing to profits for the year ending 30 September 2007.... a conservative valuation would be around 1.50p".
What you've actually got is turnover down over 50%, a loss of £1.3m, delisting of the company, and the share price halved to 0.25p bid !
You disgusting ramper, I hope you didn;t dump your stock last week, you deserve to be hoisted by your own petard in this way.|
|chancer6: Finals this week should provide the spark for the big re-rating. Turnover expected at minimum 3 million and swing to profits would put the share price at 2p (2m mkt cap).|
|chancer6: Anyone has any idea of the levels of profit margins the company makes??? The growth company arcticle indicated high levels of profit margins. Some very big figure deals have been completed by the company where they have acted on behalf of the purchaser. Looking at previous set accounts turnover could come anywhere between 3-5 million and even we take the lower number the company could be also be set to announce a swing into profits. If so a mkt cap of around 2 million which would be equivalent to a share price of 2p imo would be reasonable. All the discontinued activities should be over now as stated in the Interims last summer which have results in losses. SMPA has always been making a decent profit over previous years though that was quite low in the Interims due to getting rid of all the dead wood.
Judging by the amount of activity going on through the SMPA website, the forward looking statement should be positive.|
|ains4: Seems that Chancer walks on water and dips his toe to make ripples upwards on share price|
|canny lass: The admission of the 4,550,000 new shares to the market this Monday, given that they only represent 3% of the available market capital, that being 128,680,000 shares, hopefully should not have too much bearing on the current share price.|
|chancer6: The board must be confident of the share price getting back up to 1p imo: first bit of news in a long while today, should get the ball rolling for more news. Historically they tend to make alot of announcements during this time of the year!
Mercury Group says reached settlement deal with Smith Melzack vendors
LONDON (Thomson Financial) - Mercury Group PLC said it has entered into a
settlement agreement with the vendors of commercial property consultancy and
estate agency Smith Melzack Pepper Angliss Ltd, which was acquired by the
company on Feb 28 2005.
The company will pay a deferred amount of 182,000 stg to the vendors via
shares and convertible unsecured loan stock.
Under the terms of the original sale and purchase agreement, the vendors
were entitled to receive deferred payment from the company.
But, in Nov 2006, the company notified the vendors of certain claims for
breach of warranty relating to PAYE claims.
Now the company and the vendors have agreed that in settlement of the PAYE
claim and any other warranty claims, whether now or in the future, certain
entitlement of the vendors shall be set off against the PAYE claim.
|canny lass: spymaster,
I would be surprised if any type of account gives a client early access to company news information that could have an affect on the given market share price. This sort of information would be regarded as price sensitive / insider dealing and to my understanding it is a criminal offence to divulge such information. Not on your part though, but certainly on the broker's representative.
I don't doubt that you were informed and possibly the statement 'might not happen' was the broker's representative way of trying to cover his mistake.|
|canny lass: Chancher6,
I would have thought it will all come in one general announcement.
Particulars of the acquisition.
Proposed means to fund acquisition - Rights Issue.
Share consolidation to justify 7.5p share price.
Normally the price offered for the Rights issue is slightly discounted to the share price.|
|jdurrant: Welcome Mr Franks.
I wonder what you are going to scalp from this company.
Seeing as I won my last bet, I am offering double or nothing on my next one.
This 2nd share consolidation will bring a respectable value of 12.5p. My wager is that this Mr Franks will invest in worthless companies with dubious connections and in 6 months the share price will reach the same price as that of today.|
|fairdealer: I spoke to Mr. Walter Goldsmith non ex CEO who later phoned me back with the information that they were undertaking change structures which will help lift the share price and be good for the company and shareholders; He has taken all resposibility and aims to make it better for all.|
