|Cashflow problems undermine four in ten small firms
· 71% agree that cashflow issues are currently the biggest risk for small businesses
Four-in-ten (38%) small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) have suffered cashflow problems over the past two years, according to new research1 by Amicus Commercial Finance, the specialist lender of flexible working capital to SMEs. The figure rises to two-thirds (65%) among medium-sized firms with between 50 and 250 staff.
According to the study conducted among 500 small businesses owners, over the past two years one-in-seven (15%) are still suffering liquidity problems and 12% either came close to or became insolvent. Small businesses recognise the threat cashflow problems can pose; nearly three-quarters (71%) say it is the biggest risk they face.
On a sector basis, 35% of finance and accounting firms report that are affected by cashflow problems. Regionally, companies in the North East have been the worst hit by cashflow shortages.
The biggest challenge caused by cashflow shortages is paying suppliers, cited by 41% of business owners. This is followed by meeting debt repayments (30%), buying inventory (29%) and paying staff (24%). One-in-five (18%) said they had lost contracts due to cashflow problems.
Amicus Commercial Finance provides a revolving working capital facility based on a proprietary invoice discounting platform which utilises the latest available technology and data extraction methodology. The firm’s proposition has proved to be very attractive to a broad range of businesses with a turnover between £1m and £20m.
Its ‘Intelligent Cashflow’ solution is user friendly, making it straightforward for firms to access working capital. It integrates seamlessly with a business’s accounting system, reconciling sales in real time. The company can quickly update each customer’s availability of funds and provide quick and easy access to additional cashflow.
John Wilde, Managing Director of Amicus Commercial Finance, commented: “Our research shows that most small firms recognise the damage caused by cashflow problems but that doesn’t guarantee their immunity. The worst case scenario is insolvency but in our experience, slow paying invoices are often to blame. As working capital and cashflow are by their very nature dynamic, most traditional systems have failed to keep pace over the last few years.
“We have taken a fresh, tech-driven approach that builds on some of the lessons learned in the fast growing alternative finance sector. Here at Amicus Commercial Finance, we combine deep sector experience with a high-touch personal service and cutting edge technology to make the process as straightforward and efficient as possible.”

|We all make mistakes, Lukead.. I make hundreds every year.. its inevitable in investing, where you have to discount the (uncertain) future.But £1 invested in Leicester City became £5,000...so I don't think £1 invested in TRAK becoming worth £4 longer term is nutty, even though you may think it is improbable.Good luck with your investing in 2017.|
|i, personally, think it is naive and silly and shows a lack of investment acumen for someone to predict a share price will go from the present 95p to £20, given the inherent problems of the company and bearing in mind the recent brutal and swift decline from over £2
i think that the poster has said he got into this share at much lower levels and so is still well in profit, as of the moment, so it is easier for him to be relatively calm, if he actually believes what he has written. A pity for those who got in at much higher levels, some of who may have bought or added on the basis of what they have read on here by him and other bulls, the motto being, don't be suckered in by reading and believing everything written on BB or even , may i say a 'blog'|
|95p is being sorely tested at the moment.
Where are you getting 89.4p from?|
|Crucial point I think LUKEAD, is the posters insistence on the long term.Much can change on a 5-10 year time horizon.Even TWO years ago, no doubt I would have been called 'nutty' if I had predicted:* Leicester City would be Premier League champions, and/or:* Donald Trump would be the next US President.Most investors struggle with forecasting because they extrapolate the current circumstances.|
|PJ007, why the sarcasm, I didn't say that there will be a drop as larva has pointed out, after all, there has already been a swift and brutal decent drop from recent highs.
I am just suggesting that and I reiterate that talk of a rise to £4 and even £20 is shall we say premature. In fact idle talk of that nonsense beggars belief and puts the sanity of the contributor of that particular piece of rubbish into question, hence Planet Nutty.|
|I'm pencilling in support at 89.4p|
|Next support level is around 80p I would think.|
|You've convinced me LUKEAD.. your reasoning is comprehensive & is based on impeccable logic with plentiful evidence provided...|
|getting hog roasted again
|Personally, I prefer to ignore unsolicited rudeness from people who aren't prepared to engage with reasoned debate on a BB created for just that purpose (on this occasion I wasn't able to stay silent however) If you don't have anything valuable to contribute, then don't bother to contribute at all.|
|~~ADVFN*MODERATED£4,£5, even £20 he speaks of, this man is from Planet Nutty, don't be fooled by this mug punter, he knows nothing|
|If you look at the chart whilst the fall seems dramatic, it wasn't as dramatic as the rise. The share price rose from around a £1 to nearly £4 in about 6 months July '15 - Dec '15. The fall back to the same level has taken around 10/11 months. In summary very illiquid.
For me I can only ever take a long view with small/micro-cap illiquid companies. The volatility is massive. I agree that the fall is overdone on sentiment, but then sentiment could easily reverse again and you'd see the share price fly through £4/£5.
Rogash - Your point about the AA is a very good one, and applies to all of their blue chip clients, otherwise they wouldn't keep running additional trials with Trakm8's enhanced and new products and software.
My target of £20 might seem outlandish at the moment, but if things develop as I hope in the next few years then I see it as very realistic.|
|I don't think I have ever seen such bad sentiment in a share as this.I don't know how bad people think the outlook is, but certainly not this bad. It is now very undervalued and I have it on very good authority that AA are more than pleased with Trakm devices.|
|Recent fall is overdone. I'm in|
|I think you might be right PJ1. But I also think there will be opportunities along the way to fill our boots, as one poster put it. Whilst it doesn't affect track's business directly, if Italy votes no today, the PM resigns and their president doesn't act to stabilise/calm things quickly then the market place is going to become very choppy.|
|next missive from TW on monday afternoon|
|The Smart Drivers Club is led by a very experienced and motivated CEO. I have been reading up on them and like what I read so far, not only has she massive experience from running Wunelli before but the plans she describes are very aggresive for SDC.
|Well there is a good chance in 18 months time we will all be looking back and saying ''i wish I'd added more at the end of 2016''.|
