I have to admit i've lost track of what the various units / subsidiaries / divisions are and are called.
They had an air bearing well head developent for the Nort Sea Platforms; they had an air bearing electricity generator from gas down-pressure units in Centrica's network; an air bearing surface gas network driver for the Saudis, a EU part funded cryogenic energy storage; etc. All that seemed to have very large licence upside if exploited. But as you say its only worth something if it can be proven to work and, I would add is commercialised.
Dont know how much of that is now left.|
|Septblues, I have no idea what the IP value is but I take it you mean the compressor business IP value.
Certainly more than £50m was spent developing the technology but it is only worth something if it can be proven to work and that is what management are trying to do.
The massive losses incurred in developing this unit may be worth a considerable amount especially as the company is moving into profit but I'm no tax expert.
If you are looking for a large value figure you only have to look at the Maritime unit.
2016 EBITDA should be close to £4m for this unit and given its unique position,large ,long term and rising order book it is worth £40m on its own.
I have never given any value,IP or otherwise, to the D&T unit but that day may come but for now I am happy to see the losses coming down by large amounts.
Without the D&T unit the share price would be 10p+ but given the money spent and the losses incurred it may yet contribute.
Although the D&T losses have fallen dramatically year on year they have masked the stunning performance by the Maritime (submarine) unit.
The big positive that lies ahead is the other three units in total producing a positive contribution to EBITDA and not detracting from the performance of TP Maritime.
It should be quite possible for the engineering unit and the MS unit to produce a profit well in excess of the D&T loss and if D&T were to break even/make a profit then we have a whole new ball game.
I look forward to the TPG presentation on the 31st of January when we should get a full update on how things are going.|
|A few loading up before Monday morning I see.|
|Someone has posted that the Intellectual Property is worth £50m. Can't remember who or where.
What's the origin and justification for that?|
|Recent TU suggests it being positive news as well.|
|Lots of news on the way..|
|Well the 31st Jan is certainly a date for the diary.
Last year Simon Kings gave an excellent presentation that was full of useful (vital ?) information about the company and where it was going.|

|better be after my payday as I want to buy in|
|'The TP Group Board is pleased to announce that the business performance in FY16, in terms of EBITDA, is likely to significantly exceed current market expectations. In addition, subject to the receipt of expected payments, the Group's year-end cash position is also likely to exceed expectations. The Company expects to make a further update in January 2017 and to announce audited results for the year ending 31 December 2016 in April 2017.'Tick, tock, 9 working days left.....|
|Obviously the trading update is due very soon and with it some snippets of info.
The cash position can be worked back to give a fairly accurate guess of EBITDA and I strongly suspect that an overall/ bottom line profit is on the cards which compared with a £5m loss just a few years ago is very impressive.
The businesses bought by that clever Mr Cartmell have always shown a profit but at last the compressor losses now seem to be under control.
Looking to the future we should have the advantage of reversing the losses in reorganising the engineering unit and finally tidying up the compressor business both in H1 and certainly significant.
The share price more than doubled in 2016 and there is certainly scope for the same again in 2017 ( MS, engineering and Maritime all look very good bets for 2017 and a promised reduction in losses in the compressor unit would be very nice)
Sticking my neck out I can get figures that sit very comfortably with a share price over 10p.
A not unreasonable EBITDA of £4.3m and year end cash of £11m.(2017)
As I have said before, the cash pile is getting silly but management is working hard on engineering and MS.
My best guess is to buy a precision/ specialist engineer for £3m/£5m but no great rush and certainly other things to be getting on with.
I wonder if a small company like this getting MoD contracts worth £50m might finally get them noticed ?|
|The five year graph below shows that the initial recovery in the share price is much quicker than it's decline.
So ask yourself, how high and how fast ?
The turnaround is young.|
|I thought i would put together a graph comparing volume, and share price reaction to it, so what have i observed in this two year period.
#1) The turnaround of TPG's share price began with the 25 January 2016 RNS (Trading update and Notice of Results) when the term "breakeven" was mentioned:-
The Board is pleased to report that the Group continued to make good progress in the final quarter of 2015. Results are expected to show that Group has achieved a key target for the year by being adjusted EBITDA breakeven, and the Group closed the year with a cash balance of £7.0m, which is ahead of expectations.
#2) On occasions when daily volume hit seven million, the share price jumped twenty five percent.
#3) Although the jumps in share price have been sold into, the momentum has carried on in it's upwards trajectory.
#4) The latest jump in share price has seen many sells but market makers have limited their usual effect, i am putting this down to the impending contract announcements and that TPG is now rubbing shoulders with big hitting companies that circulate the preferred list of MOD/government contracts. It must be noted, once companies get into this clique, business between themselves also begins to flourish, which opens up new horizons for TPG's other units.|
|Hello, hello, what's this then... News coming?|
|Serious buys ticking thro|
