|iroquoi: Hi Dell
If you see them as my friends then your my friend too Dell, as I know you as much as I know them. For completness heres the full RNS:
RDF Group PLC
("RDF" or "the Company")
Continued Share Price Movement
The Board of RDF Group PLC (AIM: RFG), the IT services company, with offices in Brighton, Bristol, Edinburgh and London, has noted the continued rise in the Company's share price and speculation in the press today regarding its results for the six months to 30 September 2007 which are due to be released on 6 December 2007.
The Board expects that the results for the six months to 30 September 2007 will show a significant increase in turnover but a decline in the Group's profits for the first half of the year compared to the same period in 2006 as a result of the increased costs and reduced margins related to the continued investment in the business to build its profile as a niche I.T. services group.
Consequently, the Board now believes that the Company's profits for the period to 30 September 2007 will be materially less than the results for the same period in 2006. However, trading in the second half of the year is strong and indications are that the results for the full year will reflect significantly improved profitability in the second half.
31 October 2007

|cyberpost: Rdf Statement re Share Price Movement
RDF Group PLC("RDF" or "the Company")Share Price MovementThe Board of RDF Group PLC (AIM: RFG), the IT services company, with offices in
Brighton, Bristol, Edinburgh and London, announces that it has noted the recent
movement in the Company's share price and confirms that it is not aware of any
reason for the increase.|
|breaktime: Nice to see RDF being tipped on the IC this week...lets hope this will boost a bit the share price.|
|argy2: Beggars belief that a tipsheet with reportedly thousands of subscribers would tip this today given the tiny market made in the shares.All of which explains the hike in the share price late in the day..........the MMs must have thought Xmas was early..still it will help boost their already crooked performance claims.All we need now is the equally dishonest UK-Analyst to highlight this wonderous reaction and follow it up with a further tip next week.|
|tomoslewis: From his comments, the chairman clearly thinks so too, extract from the interims below:
The first six months of this financial year have seen strong growth in both of
the Group's core businesses, namely 'Managed Service' bespoke software
development, support and maintenance and 'Recruitment Services', offering
high-value contract and permanent staff recruitment.
Your Directors are pleased to report that existing business gains have been
maintained and, in most cases, developed further to contribute to the increased
revenues. The Group's investment in an expanded sales force is now driving new
sales throughout the UK and progress is being made in selling higher value
services to our clients. The Group continues to receive strong levels of
business from all of its major clients.
The Group's premises in Brighton and Livingston are being fully utilised and
this, combined with continuing tight control of costs and optimal staffing
levels, has provided improved profit margins.
Your Board is confident that the second half of this financial year will see
continued growth in demand for its services, with confirmed commitment levels
on retained business being matched by an expected further growth in new
business. Your Directors will continue to seek to invest in sales and marketing
opportunities, to increase revenues and to improve margins
Your Directors are focussed on expanding the number of Managed Service clients
through new sales initiatives and cross-selling these higher value services to
other clients. In addition, your Board is looking at a number of initiatives to
increase the range of IT-related services we can offer to our clients.
That last bit ... "looking at a number of initiatives to increase the range of IT-related services" to me confirms that the company may be considering supplimenting its impressive organic growth with some form of corporate action. In my opinion that means the share price should respond to events.|
|hugepants: Id expect H2 to beat H1 given last years performance and the upbeat narrative with the interims. So 0.8M after tax looks OK which puts co on a PE of 6. Perhaps a FY dividend of 1.75p so yield just under 4%?
The thing that stops me piling in is
(a) Its impossible
(b) The spread and illiquidity will make it very difficult to sell out even if you manage to overcome (a)
Why doesnt the guy holding 90% place the majority of his shares with institutional investors. This company is an attractive investment now. Its a profitable IT business with nearly 20M in revenues. Im sure if he did this the share price would be re-rated. As it is its really a private company just now.|
