|Philip. I think you will find they are all promotions rather than new starters with the exception of Michael Strong the new non-exec announced at the Dec AGM|
|The WTM twitter feed has been announced 5 senior appointments in the last couple of weeks. They have either got a lot of churn (and I thought they prided themselves on staff retention) or are expanding. Let's hope it is the latter.|
|Been buying a few recently,,,,,,,,,all looking positive to me on the run up to the interims :-)

Annual General Meeting Statement and Trading Update
Waterman Group plc ("Waterman" or "the Group"), the engineering and environmental consultancy, will be holding its Annual General Meeting at 10.30am today. Its Chairman, Michael Baker, will make the following statement:
"During the first four months of the current financial year to 31st October 2016, the Group's overall performance was in line with the Board's expectations, with revenue slightly above the prior year period, in part due to beneficial exchange rates. Cash collection has remained strong, supporting the Board's aspiration to maintain a progressive dividend policy increasing the level of dividends payable to shareholders over time.
Over recent months, excellent progress has been made on several projects where Waterman is providing engineering and environmental support to clients during the early phase of development design.
Additionally, It is with great pleasure that I can update you on the following commissions and prospects:
· In November 2016, we announced that Waterman has been appointed to the Ministry of Defence's Army Basing Programme delivered by Aspire Defence to complete, by 2020, 130 new buildings and over 2,600 additional bed spaces for single soldiers at new and enhanced garrison facilities at Bulford, Tidworth, Perham Down and Larkhill across Salisbury Plain and at Aldershot. The value of the construction programme is anticipated to be approximately £680 million and Waterman is involved in over 50% of the works.
· We have been instructed to progress scheme and tender information for the planned 90,000m2 extension to the Brent Cross shopping centre in London for Hammerson and Standard Life. This exciting new development continues our involvement in large retail projects throughout the UK where we have recently been the designers for the 40,000m2 Victoria Gate Centre, Leeds for Hammerson which opened in October 2016 and the 80,000m2 Westgate Centre, Oxford for Land Securities and The Crown Estate which will open in Autumn next year.
· We are pleased to announce that as part of the Priority Schools Building Programme, PSBP2, Waterman has been appointed by Turner & Townsend to provide technical advice for the feasibility studies of each school. Under PSBP2 the Government is aiming to improve and refurbish 278 schools by 2021. Waterman's involvement will be nationwide and cover approximately one quarter of the schools.
· Waterman Aspen, our specialist Highways and Transportation outsourcing business, has welcomed the recent Autumn statement by the UK Government confirming its commitment to invest over £1.3bn to ease congestion on the country's roads. Of particular note is that included within this investment is £1.1bn for the upgrade of local roads. Waterman currently provides engineers on secondment to over fifty County, City and Borough Councils throughout the UK as well as Highways England and Transport for Scotland."
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff and shareholders for their continued support and valued contribution during the last financial year."|
|What is not to like about them, low PE & PEG, decent divi, has cash and no debt. Seems to be at the bottom of it's cycle. Should be a winner, just need other investors to see this too! Can't see myself selling out at this price at the moment.|
|Rhomboid. It's only a possibility. I hold as they have been around since the 1950's, I know the sector, they are well managed, are very unlikely to go bust (protection of capital) and generate a good dividend. A foreign (US or more likely Asian) mega cap consultant may of course see the value that I see.|
|Hi NC , do you think the value here will be outed by takeover? I'm treating my remaining holding as more of a LT income play|
|Another Consultant succumbs to M&A - Styles & Wood £STY buying GDM for >0.9 x sales / 7 x PTP Waterman currently valued at 0.27 x sales.http://www.constructionenquirer.com/2017/01/09/styles-woods-buys-me-consultant/|

|I think it's very unlikely that they will issue one given they have no obligation to and with the AGM coming up next month. Seems the autumn statement is very positive for roads and infrastructure which will benefit Waterman Aspen in particular.Look forward to meeting some of you at the AGM hopefully.|
|Update tomorrow if it follows last years timeline|
|Any idea if there will be a trading update this week? Was on the 24th November last year.|
|Thank you WJCCGHCC, I knew design fees were a small fraction of the project cost, but didn't know the rough percentage norm for this sort of work.|
