https://www.bdonline.co.uk/darling-associates-hikes-headcount-by-15/5090342.articlehttp://www.darlingassociates.net/2017/07/17/darling-associates-confirms-record-results/Interesting comparison to Aukett in that they are London centric but with a Poland office.Turnover of £6m (a third of AUK) and yet superb PTP of £1.5m which shows the potential for such small architectural practices.

Also some useful snippets from respected Consultant Turner & Townsend on UAE market:"Within this context, it is hardly surprising that Talabani is optimistic about construction appetite in the UAE: "[The market] has surprised me with how resilient it's been and how it's been able to keep growing"".http://www.constructionweekonline.com/article-45833-face-to-face-alan-talabani-turner-townsend/

Try online again in the morning I think it closed 2.98p offer because of the 61500
sale at 2.55p.

Yep awfully illiquid and unlikely to change unless one of the major holders decides to reduce their holdings although history would indicate this is unlikely.Next results in January which should provide some clarity as to future prospects. I would encourage investors now to think about attending the AGM next year to demonstrate to the Board that they should engage with retail investors. It's a two way street.

I bought the 37500 and 25000 max online at the time. Surprised at the selling but maybe quick buck merchants on day of contract wanting to move their money to something more exciting.

Should recover to 5-7p in time.

Nice to see another jump north today. Still looks cheap on the 3 year chart. Hopefully there is more to come.

Been running some numbers re: the retail mall design contract. 1.2m sq/ft say AED650m build cost & 4.5% arch fee = £6m. Current mcap £3.5m.....Lots of variables in here but as stated in RNS this is a significant contract for Aukett. I hold.

I also think these are undervalued as a decent contrarian recovery play. I bought a few at 6p which i'm sitting on a substantial loss on and then more at 3p and a lot more at under 2.5p so today's new is welcome. These have to be cheap accross a full cycle surely?

They don't look like going bust with net cash in the bank either.

Dubai project win for Chinese client with revenues for three years that "provides valuable underpinning to the Board's view of next year's performance".

Good news from a company that seems to be priced as if it's all over; just over two times operating profit from a couple of years ago and a ptbv of about 1.

Thanks NC - that's the answer I was looking for and I appreciate you posting.
I'd also long thought AUK would either be bid from the outside or by mgt.....either would produce a decent gain from where we now sit. I'd be happy with the tp 7p mentioned

Looking at the modest but recent uptick to the sp, then maybe the "rot has stopped" at the architect's, if you forgive the unintended pun.

The lowest ask on L2 is now 3.75p, although only 50k on show until the next layer of ask @ 4p, also 50k.

Intrigued as to their strategy to make acquisitions in the Middle East as the market there currently is very mixed. Middle East clients like to change their mind and not pay you and/or you get paid 2 yrs down the line when the client feels like it. Not good for cash flow. That said, all the big consultants operate in the ME area (other than Waterman who I was very pleased pulled out of that area) and weak sterling helps when repatriating currency.It will be interesting to see how else their diversity their income stream during 2017 and beyond, whether by offering other services such as environmental, acoustics and ground engineering etc which tend to offer higher margins.Why keep their loss making Russian operations?Architectural businesses such as Aukett don't have a great track record as listed companies as they can (without generalising too much) tend to be very low margin. Aukett does offer other services such as MEP and structures but their core business is architectural. Can they turn their larger more diversified business around? Well numbers for 2017 look to be pretty poor with the UK only likely to make a profit in H2 and noises about Brexit delaying projects. Management hold a large number of shares and should be motivated to get the business into better shape.

Still made a profit. Got plenty of cash. Not ruled out paying a dividend. Now a bigger business that is more diversified geographically. Quality business with an excellent reputation. Hopefully Brexit impact is more about delays rather than cancellation. Perhaps further acquisitions or even an approach at this price? Plenty of reasons to be optimistic. I'm hanging on for now.

On closer inspection here this morning I can see value of around 7p so have bought a few. Will try to attend the AGM in March and look forward to seeing some other investors there?
