So we've closed above 50p, first time in 18 months. Debt is declining, revenue and profits are up, future looks good for speedy! I could see this accelerating to 60p now

I think this sector is going to get very exciting in the new year with lots of consolidation/takeover activity. This morning Lavendon received a hostile takeover bid of £2.05 a share (currently 1.39p)and Speedy will become an attractive target too with its diminishing debt. Interesting to see also that Toscafund increased its holding yet again in HHS Hire by nearly 3 million shares last Wednesday/Thursday to take its total holding to over 21%. They announce 9M results Thursday and saddled with colossal debt I will be interested to see whether this nationwide programme of store openings is paying off. Personally i have my doubts.

A positive and insightful article in City AM this morning which I think reveals Russell Down's animosity towards ToscaFund: Speedy Hire’s share price shot up 15 per cent this morning after the lender of tools and construction equipment reported increasing revenues and profits – an improvement the company said came “in spite” of a high-profile attack from an activist investor. Shares were up more than 15 per cent to 42.5p, their highest level since January, this morning, and analysts also appeared to be impressed. Liberum said the profit-before-tax figure was 31 per cent ahead of expectations, while N+1 Singer upgraded its forecast for the firm. The latter part of the six-month period saw Speedy Hire come under public attack from activist investor Toscafund, which forced shareholder votes on the suitability of Speedy’s chairman and the appointment of a new board member. Investors voted to let Jan Astrand, who is now non-executive chairman, remain, but agreed that David Shearer should be appointed to the board. Russell Down, who started as chief executive of Speedy in July last year, told City A.M. the company’s improvements this year came “in spite” of Toscafund. “I think all the changes that you see today were put in place a year ago,” he said. “We said at the start of the process with Tosca that the recovery was well underway, and that [the Toscafund intervention] really only happened in August. “And almost these results are in spite of what happened with Tosca, rather than because of what happened with Tosca. Because it was a distraction for the business during that particular point in time.” He added: “I wouldn’t say it was hugely disruptive, but clearly we’ve got 3,000 employees in the UK who are reading about what’s happening in the press. And it did take a lot of my time to manage that.” Down said the company has not experienced any ill effects from the UK’s Brexit vote and feels that with infrastructure projects like HS2 and Crossrail 2 coming up, there will be more opportunities for growth.

Nice update. Made a VERY nice profit here today. Alongside IQE, SDY are another great UK PLC worthy of a medium term investment - As long as we do not merge with HSS !

Positive comments from today's Telegraph Broker Liberum today tipped Speedy Hire as a buy. “Efforts to stabilise the business appear to continue to have the desired effect,” said Rahim Karim, a Liberum analyst. “This earnings momentum combined with a continued deleveraging of the balance sheet should provide the market with greater confidence,” he said. Analysts currently predict Speedy Hire will post a 2pc lift in sales to £334m in the year to March 31, and turn a £9.9m pre-tax profit from mammoth £57.6m losses the previous year.

Need another dip down to the 31p area please Must say, I feel a little uncomfortable with taking too large a long position here because of the scary thought of a merger with HSS. Their balance sheet is a train wreck. If Tosca get their way that is exactly what will happen here.

We are still none-the-wiser as to what the remaining major shareholders think. Aberforth (9.9%), FIL (7.6%) Majedie (6.5%) and Artemis (5.15%) hold the balance of power in this vote but have still given no guidance.

HSS are driving revenue through key accounts a large part of that business is rehire and therefore low or negative margins. Speedy did this and got into a mess HSS will do the same

HSS Hire made a loss of nearly £10 million in last 6 months, despite surge in revenues. Worse still its net debt has increased a further £20.6m to £238.7m. Is that level of debt even sustainable? Speedy's debt looks minuscule by comparison.Presently £102 million i expect that to reduce to £85 million (Fleet sale proceeds) by end of the year.

Chaps, thanks for the thoughtful replies. I don't know the individuals in charge at SDY, nor the turnaround person that Toscafund want to put in charge. So I can't give any proper view on that, I'm in the dark, probably like most other PIs. From what I've seen, Toscafund seem to me very reckless, even incompetent. They've got a terrible track record on small caps - like reckless punts on InternetQ, and a couple of other basket cases where they threw (other peoples) money at problems. Health Locums or something. From what I've seen, they're total muppets. What was the other ridiculous thing they backed? Some fraudulent betting company. Tosca really have no idea at all on small caps - they're reckless punters who have no insights at all. So, I would NOT back Toscafund at all. Regards, Paul.

Pauly, I'm convinced Martin Hughes was reading your posts yesterday because today he's backtracked somewhat stating "sector consolidation is not vital" but installing an independent chairman is. He's obviously been picking up on the fears many Speedy investors must now have - that we'll be taken for mugs saddled for years to come paying HSS Hire's astronomical debt.
