glasshalfull: PTY Courtesy to declare I've been a buyer of Parity over recent sessions following the strong H1 results they delivered last week. On a prospective single digit PER of 7.8 for 2017, with forecast double digit earnings growth, strong cashflow & improving operating margins through focus on Consultancy Services that is growing strongly. Share price has failed to react to the improving picture with a low price of 9.13p and high of 12.88p during 2017 in comparison to the current price of 10.13p Checked back & pleased to see kemche here who I'd the pleasure of corresponding with over on the APC thread & chrisdgb, where we share an interest in TAVI. Background Parity has been on my watchlist since the 2016 Full Year results were released in March 2017. This highlighted a turnaround in the business with the company generating £3.4m cash & reducing net debt by £3m (from £7.4m in 2015 to £4.4m). PTY also achieved PBT of £1m (vs. £3.3m loss 2016). Importantly the company had removed £1m of costs from the business & highlighted growth of 30% in their higher margin Consultancy Services. This resulted in operating margins increasing to 1.9% from 1.2% the previous year. H1 2017 Results These highlighted further progress with Parity generating a further £2.16m cash in H1 & net debt falling from £4.4m to £2.3m. That's a reduction of £5.1m net debt in the last 18 months. EPS for H1 2017 was 0.62p (vs. 0.23p H1 2016) & PBT came in at £0.68m (vs. £0.28m H1 2016) on continuing operations. Again, Consultancy Services was the engine of growth with revenue +48% although margins were held back as they invested £300k-£400k through an increased sales headcount & requirement to utilise contractors on new projects. To place this in context, the current market cap @10.13p is only £10.1m & WH Ireland have adj. PBT of £1.6m pencilled in for 2017, growing +18% to £1.9m in 2018. This equates to 2017 adj. EPS of 1.3p this year, growing +15% to 1.5p in 2018. The discontinued business Inition, has been up for sale since Dec 2016 & shows on the balance sheet with net assets of £1.9m. Sale anywhere in this ballpark would wipe out net debt entirely, although the performance of the group hasn't been too shabby in reducing debt by £5.1m in the last 18 months as highlighted above. Conclusion It looks good value to me on a prospective PER of 7.8 for 2017, falling to PER of 6.8 in 2018 especially with the H1 2017 results indicating that the positive momentum was continuing with over 50 new client wins across the business & extension of a major contract with the MoD since the period end. They have also been awarded positions on major frameworks such as Digital Outcomes & G-Cloud for consultancy services. Parity has also been throwing off cash & are currently forecast to end 2019 with £2.5m net cash before any proceeds from the sale of Inition. That's some improvement on a net debt position of £7.4m at the end of 2015. WH Ireland have also indicated that the pipelines in both divisions cover revenue forecasts for 2017, mitigating risk somewhat. They retain a 17.5p target price. Please DYOR. Kind regards, GHF

thorne3: I do not believe there will be any dividends in the foreseeable future however the upwards only share price action will more than compensate.The obvious reason for any dividend deferrment is that borrowings will need to be reduced and additional business financed.The Directors' share purchases not to mention the options agreed in September point to a wealth of good fortune to emerge over the next few months/years.Do not underestimate the impact that David Firth the newly appointed Non Exec. who used to be Fd. of Parity will have on the business.David recently sold a similar business to Parity to Adecco of Switzerland and will not be lacking in ambition for the future of Parity.

thorne3: An excellent set of figures;I understand that the company will now be making presentations to the market place which should cause the share price to move ahead.I agree with Dusseldorf that 25/30p seems well on the cards a couple of years out.

thorne3: I would estimate ebitda of £1.25m and a share price of 12p post the figures;the excitement is about to begin.

thorne3: More than likely that the share price is being managed in anticipation of the finalisation of a share incentivisation scheme for the newly appointed directors.All should be clarified at the AGM on May 31st.

inbrackets: Bingaxu, did you ever get a reply? Always remember someone posting a few years ago that they had mailed and had a prompt response from Philip Swinstead and this had impressed him to the point that he remained invested. I seem to remember that the share price was at about the same level and then went up to the mid 30's. I will be interested in your answer as it could reveal quite a lot in current attitude. Are shareholders just a necessary sufferance or there just to suffer quietly and benignly.

bingaxu: Over 1 million worth of shares were traded today and it looks like they were buys. Anyone has level 2 can tell us whether they were buys or sells?Hargreave Hale ltd has also increased their holding in this share. I'm pretty sure the share price will improved in due course. In March there will be a trading update which we will find out where the share price will be going?
