Todays fall predicated on just 8 trades and an overall volume of less than 10,000 shares so far. The 15p spread is indicative of the potential price volatility on minimal volumes. Nothing further has been announced since the year end results in March when the outlook position was summarised as follows: Prospects: "2016 was a particularly successful year for the Group and it is anticipated that we will see similar levels of productivity in 2017. The current order books across the Group are robust with work secured through to the latter part of the year. There has been some improvement in margins during 2016, aided by operational efficiencies, and although margins remain competitive it is hoped that there will be further improvements in 2017. The Group will also be able to further consolidate and expand operations in the second half of the year as the additional facilities at Shafton become available."

It is a strange one. Looked at SFR statement again and maybe the softening of the order book there has spooked a few. But the valuation here is so low anyway that that is probably priced in and more anyway!

Hopefully the forthcoming statement will kick us out of this present trading range we seem to have been stuck in for nigh on 15 months. The nice divvi received recently eases the wait.

Trading update due end of month as per last year and looking at the March results think we can expect some encouraging reading IMO Highlights · Strong profit and revenue growth for the year · Good order book with work through to the end of 2017 · Approximately 25,000 tonnes of material fabricated throughout the year · Operating margins improved to six per cent in the year · Positive progress at the Shafton facility and further operational improvements anticipated from the second half of 2017 · Billington continues to strengthen its workforce across all divisions · Current market conditions provide opportunities for growth · Dividend increased to 10 pence per share Mark Smith, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "2016 was another successful year for the Company and we have delivered a strong set of full year results, with a solid performance from all divisions. "Over the past year, the Company successfully maintained its order book, and has work continuing throughout 2017. "With the acquisition of Shafton, in December 2015, the Company began its expansion strategy and this year we are looking forward to progressing to the next stage. A number of tenants at the Shafton site will vacate shortly, allowing Billington to complete its facility adaptation programme, ready for operations to begin in earnest the second half of 2017. "Given this strong set of results, Billington is pleased to deliver an increased annual dividend of 10 pence per share and we look forward to an equally busy year, maintaining the excellent work rate of 2016."

Markets can be very irrational about small cap company valuations and therefore patience is often a necessary attribute when both fundamentals and recently reported trading performance are positive.

Agree 🙄 I'm sitting on a lot of them which multiplies the frustration 😡Can't see a reason to do other than sit back and let mgt deliver and at some point the market will catch on , or the dividend will be higher than the share price..

This has to be one of the most frustrating stocks on the market, undervalued by up to 50% IMV. 😡

I'm nominating it as the current most frustrating share to hold alongside INSE.

Managed to grab a few more just now (@ 230p) on this morning's down-turn. Their prospects make BILN one of the few companies I'm willing to buy in this tetchy environment.

I thought long and hard before making my first BILN share purchase earlier in the year simply because I rarely invest these days in a company which has a virtual controlling holding in it ..... Gutenga Investments PCC Limited holds 49.9% and has two directors on the BILN board namely Mr P Hems and Dr A Ospelt. A chat to the co sec, however, reassured me as he considers the stake to be purely as an investment and Gutenga do not interfere in the day-to-day running of the company. Dr Ospelt's share purchases last week, therefore, makes for an even stronger argument to be a holder now.

there is a long tail of private steel businesses that are losing out to SFR & BILN because their balance sheets are too stretched to pass contract due diligence without giving away payment on completion..which they've not got the working capital to do. Catch 22 which leaves SFR and BILN cherry picking and able to boost margins on the larger more complex jobs they like.

Yes BB2 Of note was margin increased from 5.7% to 7.5% and PBT +50% Sector clearly doing well though order book off a little (Severfield tend to take the larger high profile projects so subject to swings in order level)

Great results from Severfield this morning but the UK order book has fallen somewhat, now that can mean two things either the likes of BILN are making inroads into their markets or maybe a softening of contracts. I'm inclined to plump for the former given our order book. Welcome onboard chrisis33 👍

One or two waking up to potential significance of Director buy yesterday +8% Actually I exaggerate it's more than one or two - 6 buys I can see and just 6k traded. Nice to be off radar!

Yes and as a representative of the majority shareholder I assume he has a pretty good idea of where we are heading and the true value of the business. (presumably significantly North of 260p) Remains my second largest holding GL - SJ

Dr Ospelt received £10k for his non-exec duties last year but has just spent £16.4k on his share purchases so he must have been impressed by something ..... comforting for us mere shareholders.

Non Exec Director buys a small personal holding But he is on the Board of the majority shareholders who hold 60% Not sure of significance, if any, but he was happy to pay up to 259p hTTp://www.investegate.co.uk/billington-holdings--biln-/rns/directors-pdmr-dealings/201706121546178537H/ Small market response into the close
