2014 was the helicopter acquisition, it's been pretty much downhill since then.

The value's been dropping since 2014, & long before CorbynMcdonnel was a contender. The reduction in value over that time can plausibly be attributed to our results simply being viewed as too good to be true under the circumstances. Now that we have, today, some admission of negative circumstances, & nothing more startling,I expect a share price recovery.

A perplexing stock! I suppose the cash flow conversion was the negative catalyst as it's a big warning sign of problems with long term contracts- even though management had a good explanation.

Isn't this another Corbyn McDonnell fear stock?

Thanx for that, hopefully IC has more rigorous research than most of the published brokers projections which, thankfully, are 'buys' but at anywhere between £10 to nearly £14, which invites scepticism at the very least. No skeletons tho' it seems; we'll all be ok in a couple of years. Won't we.

IC have published a buy rec online. They explain the extra working capital requirement of £44m is due to aircraft and other assets acquired for the french air force training contract and changes in the program. They say it will reverse when the leases are signed. In summary they say "However, there is excellent revenue visibility, the workload is heavily weighted towards non-discretionary spending, and there remain high barriers to entry. Buy."

Well, after reading the results this morning I was certain I would be buying but have to confess to being somewhat mystified at the reaction.

bend1pa OK. But they expect that will even out as a 1st half/second half issue on working capital requirements???

Big drop in yoy operating cash flow, £81 (£181). For free cash flow after pension contributions, £33m (£127.5m). Seems that is what spooked the market. Nothing like enough cash made in period to cover divs £112.8m. They had to raise a loan of £121m mainly to pay it. So not so great.

I think the fall here might just be due to short positions taken on low volume. From a chart perspective that intraday June low just had to be taken out. If they did it once they could do it again. This time they've put in a lower low on the spike down. If that's not the floor, we could be in trouble.

I wonder if this is just heading for the 700p round number on a purely technical basis, powered by automatic selling. 700p ish is the support on the long term chart.

Me too. Very relieved & validated to read the overview of the half-year figures n then checked live price. I realise I understand nothing about the market these days. I did well last year ducking n diving with lightweight speccy shares and in January thought I'd better settle with a couple of non-volatile solid divi payers, inc BAB at £9, and hold - both have tanked, for no discernable, to me, reason. I give up.

The drop could only be done to order book reduction. However the bid pipeline is higher so this could convert to on par orders. Good results I'll add today
