Anecdote: I've seen "offshore development centres" in the past and they live or die based upon the initial spec, how close the dev team is to the product managers and how on the ball the parent company is regarding deviation from spec / slipping from timeframe / mission creep of the development etc. If Brady can do it, they will be performing better than I expect. On the plus side, this could bring modularity and code-reuse by the different teams and that would only be a good thing (30 might be outrageously optimistic).
Here's a FY results presentation with Gavin Lavelle, CEO He talks through 2015 FY results, and explains the challenges throughout the year. In spite of the difficult commodities market, and the reduction in spending by customers Lavelle puts forward a confident view of where he sees Brady positioned. Costs have been cut by £2m and the offshore development centre will provide further savings. 56% of revenue is now generated by recurring income. Lavelle believes contracts have been delayed, not cancelled. And cites they are still growing market share. Further, there maybe acquisition opportunities in the software market, due to the challenging market, that others with a less robust balance sheet may not weather so well. Fundamentally he sees them de-risked, moving away from licensed sales, lowering costs; and a low leveraged play of the commodity market.
I don't value your comment, Gargoyle2, but I'm looking to lose enough brain cells or be drunk enough to start rating it.
I recall there being questions asked as to why the directors weren't buying after the December profit warning. Lavelle brushed that off in at least one interview. He's a smooth talker, that's for sure. Let's see if they are going to stick their necks out now. (I no longer hold, but am looking for a decent entry point.)
Just cannot trust this company to deliver.
Video interview with Gavin Lavelle Gavin Lavelle, chief executive of Brady Plc (LON:BRY) says he is “delighted” that the firm is still winning contracts despite the downturn in the commodity market. The firm reported a loss of £1.4mln for the year to December 2015, but Lavelle says that the firm has taken “corrective action” in the fourth quarter, taking more than £2mln in costs out of the business. “We will see the benefit of that coming through in the first half of this year, and whilst it’s difficult to call the turn in the commodity markets, our cost base is lower we are being prudent and we are de-risking the business,” he adds, noting that he expects the business to be cash generative in the current financial year.
Nasty results
The company warned in November 2015 that, despite the reporting of a healthy sales pipeline in the H1 results statement released in September, a material deterioration in underlying market conditions in the previous month had lengthened buying cycles for existing customers and new prospects. Hence a number of pipeline opportunities would not be converted in the remainder of the financial year as expected, and this would result in revenues and EBITDA being materially below market expectations. Cash down Turnover down Losses Yuk!
Well it took longer than I expected, but last Monday we saw the republishing of 50k shares when the share price is 56.5p although in October they bought 310k shares when the price was ~80p. I had thought it would be only a couple months but it has been over twice as long. The cynic in me notes that the full year accounts are released on Monday and the ownership of 50,000 shares is unlikely to be with the rank and file membership.
Hi all, I went to the Shares/Cenkos Investors and Innovators Show last week and spoke with the Brady guys - if you scroll down on my Blog page you should find the Blog about this and some other Stocks. I hope it helps, cheers, WD hTTp://
Even so, Brady is expected to be loss-making this year. But it is enacting a round of cost cutting that will hopefully save £1.7mln a year. Loss making One more profit warning coming. Look at the commodity sector. Thos customers are skint
On the mend. Plenty on offer at 38p day after warning.
Comment from Facebook on Friday.......have topped up this morning.... Brady plc 8 January at 01:33 · London · Happy Friday! It has been a brilliant start to the year for Brady as we clinched 4 deals and completed a successful acquisition of energycredit. It is already shaping up to be a fantastic year!
Think that makes 8 in the period of a month. No indication of size, so makes it impossible to assess the impact on no's, but hopefully it's the beginning of a recovery. I'd sold down 2/3's of my holding in the late 80's / 90's, so have avoided most of the pain. Tempted to come back in over the next few days. Techno
