A little disappointed no trading update to date. They must have some idea by now as to their year end position and future order book/prospects, or are they perhaps waiting to land some big orders then announce? Hopefully, trading is still in line with previous guidance.

Obviously steel prices are a headwind...having discussed the topic with the company many times over the years (including mast week)I can confirm that they are generally 80% fixed at point of tender submission..thus wider market price moves only impact the part of the 20% that they can’t pass on cost variation to...so not ideal but dealable with The demise of a competitor is bad for them/their employees but healthy for the wider market as it takes capacity out...it also encourages customers to stick to dealing with those suppliers who have a robust cash rich balance sheet...which is good for Billington

All good points ansc. The words "cautious optimism" are always welcome, in relation to current trading. I have had quick look also at previous years trading updates and contrary to my previous thoughts, there does not seem to be a consistent pattern. Some times they are early (Nov/Dec) others are later on (late Jan/Feb). So nothing to be read by no news at the moment. I am assuming that trading must be continuing in line with their last update, so all good.

Yes, a trading update was issued on 12 December, 2019, but not this time round ... however, 2020 results did turn out to exceptional. As we know, the first half of 2020 turned out to be a difficult one for BILN with profits well down (not unexpectedly) so it's worth remembering the CEO's closing statement accompanying those results: [Mark Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Billington, commented: "Following an exceptional 2019, the first half of the year has been dominated by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the construction sector and the consequential restrictions on site access, project delays and cancellations. We have seen a significant impact on our first half revenue, however with all Group operations having now returned to near full capacity and with the majority of projects having restarted, we look forward to the remainder of the year with cautious optimism. We anticipate improved Group financial performance in the second half of the year, before hopefully moving to more normal trading conditions in 2021 assuming the economy stabilises and commences its recovery from the pandemic."]

Still no year end trading update, in previous years they have posted in Nov/Dec. I am taking this as good news, as in the current climate it is an absence of bad news, and that trading is in line with previous guidance. Noticed a bit in the construction press about a20% rise in structural steel prices from Jan 2021. Hope this does not adversely affect their current workload or winning future contracts. Construction Enquirer Structural steel prices to soar by nearly 20% Aaron Morby. 2 weeks ago British Steel is hitting construction with a surprise £80 a tonne hike in the price of structural steel from the start of the year. The rise will amount to a 15%-20% jump in the price of structural sections which fell to £430-£450 a tonne during the summer. British Steel first put the industry on notice in early December for a £30 a tonne New Year rise, blaming raw materials costs and a surge in global steel prices. But this notice was suddenly withdrawn seven days later. Now it has come back with a figure that is nearly treble the original planned increase, blaming unprecedented increases in raw materials costs.

Much appreciated rhomboid - very helpful! Aside from this year (covid) the 5-6 year growth track record looks a dream. If they can get back to where they were before cash adjusted PE probably ~ 5 which seems a little unfair... ... for me biggest risk here is no deal brexit. FY19 looked like almost 30% revenue from Europe which looked like an area of potential growth (i'm thinking data centres)

just looking at this one as it came up on a screen. initial glance looks promising, i'd appreciate any knowledge from holders or opinions on the following: - uk structral steel market likely to be fairly flat plus looks like raw material input costs may make steel unattractive vs alternatives - where does the management see the growth coming from? - who are the largest shareholder Gutenga Investments PCC Limited? - director holding don't exactly look inspiring Thanks in advance

A year-end trading (turnover/profit) update and or announcement of contracts secured, is usually given by BILN in November or December of each year. Nothing as yet this year but hopefully within the next week or 2 guidance will be provided as to the trading conditions & prospects for 2021.

It has bounced off the important 300p level which has been important for the last 15 years.

mmm, had to happen eventually. This is another one of those quality stocks whose price fell on lockdown but failed to recover (whilst some rather dubious business have seen prices recovery where this is not warranted. Doesn't take a lot to move the share price here (works both ways)

I think looking past this year's numbers makes some sense in terms of seeking a valuation. If we are to evaluate the business on future earnings it remains as attractive as it ever was. The cash position is similar to last year. The enterprise value is very significantly lower than the market cap and notwithstanding the mention of cap-ex for improved facilites being upcoming, AND of course the principle that saving from no dividend payouts have helped; this is nevertheless a very encouraging situation in the period up to the end of June. In terms of future prospects and the wider narrative, I do believe BILN's business is robust. I don't see how its market place is specifically exposed to COVID related negatives. Therefore I am focused on the quality of the business and a conclusion that a return to a more normal pattern of trading seems the most probable base case.

All the numbers are positive albeit much reduced from last year. Long term prospects remain very good.

Yes those orders represent over 25% of estimated revenues. I can't help but feel that the present price level is somewhat of a long term investment opportunity.
