hedgehog 100: 25/02/2021 07:00 UK Regulatory (RNS & others) OTAQ PLC Non-Executive Director Appointment OTAQ, the marine technology products and solutions group for the global aquaculture and offshore oil and gas industries, is pleased to announce that Malcolm Pye will join the Board of OTAQ as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect. Malcolm founded, and from 1999 to 2019 was Chief Executive of, Benchmark Holdings plc ("Benchmark"), the world's leading aquaculture health, nutrition and genetics business. Malcolm has over 35 years' experience in international agribusiness through his various roles at Hillsdown Holdings (then HMTF Group), and through building Benchmark from the initial start-up into a major international aquaculture technology business serving the global salmon, shrimp, tilapia and farmed fish industries. Malcolm focused Benchmark's activities on animal health, breeding and genetics, advanced nutrition and knowledge/technology delivery and led the flotation of Benchmark in 2013, maintaining a lead role in investor engagement. Prior to his founding role at Benchmark, Malcolm gained wide experience in the food sector from his various senior management positions within Hillsdown Holdings, operating in animal breeding, poultry production, feed milling and veterinary services. During this time, he developed extensive experience in breeding and genetics, food production/technology, sales (including account lead responsibilities within the UK / international retail sector with a range of bluechip companies including M&S, Tesco and McDonalds) and strategic M&A as well as holding a main board position within the Group. Malcolm's work with Hillsdown Holdings in the early to mid-1990's influenced a career-long focus on sustainable food production which formed the basis and inspiration for the creation of Benchmark Holdings. Alex Hambro, Non-Executive Chairman, commented: "We are really delighted to welcome Malcolm to the Board of OTAQ. Malcolm's experience in, and knowledge of, the global aquaculture industry is unparalleled, and will be of huge benefit to OTAQ as it develops and commercialises additional sustainable technologies and services for the aquaculture farming and producing communities. Our core SealFence acoustic deterrence system has significant opportunities for growth in geographies where Malcolm has built strong long-term relationships. Furthermore, his knowledge of additional farmed species other than salmon will be extremely helpful as we expand our range of products ." Aside from the information set out in the announcement above, no further information is required to be disclosed pursuant to Listing Rule 9.6.13R.
simon gordon: Equity becoming more worthless by the day. The faith shown in this company by investors is preposterous.
edwardt: jv partner loss came about because the partner got acquired - so hard to blame them for that. investors are on their back about streamlining the business- hence the moves out of certain assets. on the financing - i suspect they will get this away with ease. trading at 0.5% book infers alot of 'write offs' are already in the share price investor base is definitely rotating to the show me rather than the like the concept types. i think this could multi bag with a 10 year view. management must be under the cosh though for sure.
10:45 I think it's perfectly visible, but that would be investors are looking at what the accounts actually say. Greatly increased debt to a third of revenue, £9m operating loss, a huge "goodwill" value stuck in the middle of the Intangibles, increased depreciation, and running to the bank for $20m extra borrowing headroom. All this with revenue only rising 8%. Breakeven is ages away. Net profit even farther away. Dividends? - possibly in 10 years time. You are more likely to see a fund-raising to cut debt before that, especially if we have another "bad shrimp year". And that's what the "City money men" are seeing. As a reminder:- ----------------------------------------- ------- ------- Revenue 151.5 140.2 Cost of sales (77.5) (77.8) ----------------------------------------- ------- ------- Gross profit 74.0 62.4 Research and development costs (12.0) (13.1) Other operating costs (44.6) (39.2) Depreciation (6.8) (4.9) Amortisation of capitalised development - - costs Share of profit of equity-accounted investees, net of tax (0.4) 0.0 Adjusted Operating Profit 10.2 5.2 ----------------------------------------- ------- ------- Exceptional including acquisition related items (1.2) 5.6 Amortisation of intangible assets excluding development costs (18.1) (18.4) ----------------------------------------- ------- ------- Operating Loss (9.1) (7.6) ----------------------------------------- ------- ------- Net debt 2018 2017 GBPm GBPm --------------------------- ------- ------- Cash and cash equivalents 24.1 18.8 --------------------------- ------- ------- Bank borrowings and other loans - current (0.9) (6.0) Obligations under finance leases - current - (0.2) --------------------------- ------- ------- (0.9) (6.2) --------------------------- ------- ------- Bank borrowings and other loans - non-current (78.9) (36.5) Net debt 55.7 23.9 --------------------------- ------- -------
