glasshalfull: Couldn’t agree more playful. Delighted that Roger is a buyer & it certainly puts to bed any notion that his shareholding was an overhang over the share price. As you say, this a big vote of confidence in the strategy employed by Richard Hodgson & his team. Kind regards, GHF
glasshalfull: Evening guys Received another series of email alerts to the posts on APC & yet again I find ronwilkes123 the protagonist. Made me chuckle...especially as I kindly responded to this posters continual negativity & speculation on poor trading by detailing the company communication on trading over the last year, providing forecasts & answering queries. Then, when a positive statement arrived it was interesting to see Ron disappear when the share price climbed +10% & also when politely asked on how he arrived at a 5p price target & was this still valid? We have some small selling today (£5,000 worth) & funnily enough Ron pops back. Hmm??? Well Ron, I welcome those investors/ posters with an alternative view on a company as they help one to evaluate the investment case. Opposing views make a market...but posters such as yourself just suck the life out of investment threads & hence more and more investors are turning away from contributing as they have to wade through countless garbage posts. Best way to solve this... ronwilkes123 (Filtered) Kind regards GHF
glasshalfull: Afternoon Ron, In answer to your question I’d appreciate a t/s & certainly wasn’t implying there wouldn’t be an update. Just attempting to place another perspective on a flurry of posts that were questioning some small selling of the stock & suggestions that company performance was poor. Think you placed a 5p price on the stock & I’d be interested on any analysis you care to share on how you arrived at this price, especially when investors stumped up £2.5m @ 6.75p only 8-weeks ago? As for prompts to share price improvement. Since the t/s on 21.09.17 for the FY last year there have been quite a few updates on trading. Certainly more than 2 per annum: - 05.12.17 - Results & confirmation of in-line trading 11.01.18 - Acquisition of FB & confirmation of in-line trading 22.02.18 - AGM update. Pleased with start to FY18 19.03.18 - Notice of results & business update 17.04.18 - H1 results & outlook (strategy) 03.07.18 - Positive update on FB acquisition(+33% increase order run-rate) 25.07.18 - Placing & confirmation of in-line trading Not to forget they took the opportunity to speak with investors over the course of a full day & also to present at Mello 2018 (Derby) at the end of April 2018. In summary, I feel they have been good in updating investors & the market. The RNS updates I’ve listed certainly confirm this. Your query as to what will prompt the share to rise is down to the company performing as per the forecasts I described in my previous post. If they deliver the earnings growth Stockdale estimate... then the share price will take care of itself. All IMHO as always. Kind regards, GHF
this_is_me: I'm just glad that I didn't buy my small holding in 2013 when the share price was around 70p. If I had I wouldn't have thought of my glass being half full, more like useless in the current weather conditions! I bought mine 2 years ago and didn't realise that the jam tomorrow was going to be red not blue.
rivaldo: Hi GHF. I had a small introductory holding here, but have bought quite a few more this morning. Today's news is excellent, and summarised beautifully as always in your above post. I see Stockdale have increased their target price to 12p (from 10p). And their forecasts going forward have increased to: 2019 - 0.75p EPS 2020 - 0.86p EPS On which basis today's share price looks rather cheap.
jpuff: It would be nice to see a rise in the share price if all is so rosy after three years of stagnation. I seem to recall that I bought in yonks ago on the back of Investors Champion recommendation but they hardly ever mention the company these days :(
harrogate: No that is AIM these days when it hasn't changed its name to bitcoinengineering and is a "boring" engineering type company! I am delighted with the progress and I am sure over the next 18 months we will see commercial and share price improvement
glasshalfull: Couldn't agree more with your statement PJ & the sentiment expressed by playful. Focus should be on growing the business/ profitability & the share price will take care itself. I would rather they weren't otherwise distracted. APC is now profitable & the company released a fairly detailed presentation explaining the road-map for growth. I'm sure the company will update Investors when they've got something to say! Kind regards GHF
glasshalfull: APC Courtesy to mention that I've been a buyer in APC. It's been harder to find value in the market recently as momentum trading appears all the rage, but I've been suitably impressed with the drive & ambition of the new management team & hope this proves to be a rewarding long term investment. Background APC is a well established company of over 35 years. The share price reached the heady heights of 68p in November 2013.... & it's been downhill ever since, with the shares bouncing off 5.75p in June 2017 - fingers firmly crossed this was the low! This followed a couple of placings to shore up the balance sheet over recent years with the current share price of 6.75p equates to a market cap of £8.8m. At the end of H1 2017 net debt stood at £2.9m at (28.02.2017) for an EV of £11.7m. The company had plenty of headroom as the £2.9m net debt comprised £2.5m drawn on invoice finance facilities (£6m facility), £0.6m of loan notes (due July 2018) and £0.2m cash. While I would prefer the balance sheet to be stronger, the new team appear to have turned the business around & have slashed costs by over £2m on an annualised basis. Indeed, the H1 2017 results marked the first glimpse of a new dawn that followed change amongst most managerial positions. This concluded an extensive 18 month restructuring period which included the disposal of a loss making business & progress on refocusing the company. H1 2017 results highlighted the company delivering a pre-exceptional operating profit of £0.4m on turnover of £8.3m. Gross margin was 34% with net debt reduced by £0.3m. So, why invest now? Well apart from the first sign of a company turnaround & buying at what I hope is close to a low (share price is on its knees) my attention was first drawn to the stock when I noticed that a well respected PI had taken a notifiable stake in the company (>3%). I also noted the share register included notifiable holdings with the likes of Bob Holt at 3% (Chairman of Mears Group); Mark Blandford via Rockridge Investments now at 11.4% (Sportingbet founder); the savvy small cap investors Hargreave Hale now at 16.6% & Octopus at 6.6%. Quite an enviable list for any small cap company. The CEO, Chairman and some other notable investors recently subscribed for shares in the company. They invested £125k & £250k into APC during March & May 2017 respectively (at 6.75p), thus showing their confidence in APC while boosting the balance sheet at the same time. I've subsequently spoken at length with APC & v impressed with CEO Richard Hodgson who I believe is implementing the steps that will lead the company into a period of sustainable profitable growth. What do APC technology do? "APC Technology Group PLC provides design, specification and distribution of specialist electronic components and systems, lighting technologies and connectivity products to the defence, aerospace, industrial, real estate, logistics and healthcare sectors." They describe themselves as a “design in” distribution business focused on the high end electronic components sector alongside a division delivering LED lighting. HTTP:// In English, my understanding is that APC's engineers engage with their UK customer base to "design in" the products that are supplied by a distribution base that comprises companies from throughout the world. We are talking product lines where the, "end-use equipment is operating in extreme conditions or is running applications where component failure would be catastrophic." Think power components for the military or aerospace or....the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter launched from Kazakhstan by the European and Russian Space Agency in 2016 that used the DC-DC converters supplied by APC. HTTP:// The companies (suppliers) that APC distribute on behalf of may be small in size or operate in niche markets which negates the need for a UK distribution & admin base. In other words, APC provides a number of value-added functions that not only includes the supplier with an end market to sell into, but also the addition of value added services such as the modification or design-in of the products supplied to meet the end customers requirements. It may also include the provision of an admin, importation & logistic function to assist the supplier e.g. the UK defence & aerospace market is highly regulated & requires accreditation and certification which APC can progress & gain on behalf of the supplier. Worth mentioning that the company may be a beneficiary of BREXIT as the complexities of dealing with the UK end user market of the UK may be more problematic for ROW companies without a UK base or specialised distributor like APC In the 2016 Annual Report the company indicated exclusive distribution agreements with over 60 manufacturers of electronic components and systems for the UK market. This included components for flight critical systems, power distribution in civil aircraft, high voltage components for power supplies, custom filters for harsh environments, satellites and space exploration, transportation and hybrid vehicles and extreme temperature oil and gas components. The following presentation from April 2017 provides a summary of the APC proposition & their addressable markets in p4 & p5. HTTP:// Where is growth coming from? As mentioned APC are an established company with c.£18m turnover per annum via a number of longstanding suppliers and end customers. With the cost base realigned (£2m costs removed on annualised basis) the company is now profitable & indicated during its release of H1 2017 results that March 2017 bookings stood at £2.1m and hopefully operational gearing should now be emerging. The first signs of the growth strategy emerged in the RSN Reach released last week with the appointment of a Business Development Director & securing 3 new distribution agreements in RF & Microwave and also High Reliability products. Worth mentioning some other snippets, such as their launch of APC Smartwave last year to provide Internet of Things (IoT) products. APC also highlighted via their web site the growing requirement of companies to meet MiFID II legislation by the Jan 2018 deadline & the increasing focus on subsidiary APC Time's relationship with supplier Meinberg to meet the requirements. HTTP:// Forthcoming trading update? I believe that the company may issue a trading statement in the near future in respect of the 2017 year end which occurred last week (31.08.2017). Any update will hopefully confirm the progress highlighted in the interims, indicating the business both stable & profitable, while confirming the growth drivers in 2017/18. If APC can drive growth, maintain gross margins of c.35% & generate cash, then with operational gearing kicking in I don't believe it fanciful to think that APC could generate profits of £1m+ EBIT moving forward. Such performance would bring the company into sharper investor focus, although it looks as if a number of focused investors have already taken positions. Well, I hope that proves to be the case!!! Disclosure I have a modest holding. Please DYOR Kind regards, GHF
