"Pointless moving out of the UK as they will never make any return on the investment." ... Numis does very well with its USA connections, while the idea of the move to Asia was to facilitate fundraising for UK IPOs .... ... so your argument holds as much water as leaving the EU. This share has 70p written all over it - the last results were a profit warning in disguise.

They are a broker and nomad....in the UK. Pointless moving out of the UK as they will never make any return on the investment. They are not a manufacturing company!

"Better to stick with the uk. Sensible move." Perhaps - but doesn't really bode well for that Brexit idea of Breaking out into new markets does it?

I noted Cenkos Asia has been shut down at a cost of a million or so .. I'm guessing that was the extra 2p in dividends.

Cenkos have been appointed Nomad & joint broker (alongside Cannacord Genuity) to Seeing Machines Ltd (SEE), replacing previous Nomad/joint broker, finnCap. Cenkos previously acted alongside finnCap & Cannacord as joint bookrunner on a Placing/Subscription/Open Offer in Dec 2017 which raised £37.4m but was not previously listed as a joint broker to the company...

That would certainly suit me nicely. A decent, reliable yield, rather than a lumpy dividend that can go from good to poor in a single year. 9p a year will do for starters and it can progress from there.

Spot on. Seems to me that the CEO has firmly stated/reiterated he wants to pay a non-volatile and reliable dividend (stable) - with the added kicker of special dividends when there is excess cash. That's fantastic. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

As an aside, my attention was also caught by the following statement in the Results announcement: "Our goal is to pay a STABLE ordinary dividend, reinvest into our Firm and return excess cash to shareholders subject to capital and liquidity requirements and the prevailing market conditions and outlook." Wonder if this points to a more stable core dividend being paid going forward with excess cash being returned via special dividends/share buybacks into treasury? Hence the lower than anticipated 4.50p final payment vs 6.50p which was forecast. The new CEO appears to me to be slightly more conservative in his language & nature than the previous encumbent.

Indeed. I note that in the full Outlook statement the CEO said: "There has been significant market volatility leading to a correction in all main global indices. This market volatility does appear to have had an impact on investor sentiment with a pause in the momentum the Firm experienced in the second half of 2017. Despite this,... we look forward to the future with cautious optimism." It's all a question of personal interpretation. Perhaps I tend to feel more comfortable erring more on the side of caution. Despite operating in a sector where sentiment, fortunes & revenues can change rapidly, I've no doubt Cenkos will continue to perform profitably making healthy distributions to shareholders. GLTA

you have misrepresented what the CEO said in his Outlook statement. it was not CAUTIOUS. it was "with cautious OPTIMISM" OPTIMISM is OPTIMISM.

Hear what you're saying, QP but revenues do tend to be lumpy. Depends when deals drop for each peer in the sector e.g. it may have been a challenging end to last year for many, but Q4 was Cenkos's best quarter in 2017. Conversely Q1 2018 seems to have been a good one for many, yet 2018 appears to have been relatively quiet to date for Cenkos. Of course all that can change very quickly if they manage to bag one or two larger deals. Lack of revenue visibility is just one of the characteristics of the sector. Fortunes can change rapidly in either direction. Think the company's cautious outlook in results was telling. But in the long run it all tends to even itself out. Aimho

An interesting report in CityAm about the upbeat prospects for the IPO market in 2018. Seems that the sector backdrop is improving after a challenging end to the 2017 IPO season. Rosenblatt mentioned again. A rising tide lifts all boats. link to CityAM article hXXp://www.cityam.com/283574/after-bumpy-end-2017-outlook-london-listing-market-2018 ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Purchased my first, small, tranche of shares in Cenkos; company looks sound and does pay a nice dividend.

Yes, good results. 2018 has started slowly though. As always, a couple of big deals can improve the position materially. Happy to hold. The new board seem to be making a point around building on strengths and improving regulation / ethics following Quindell. They seem to have a bright future provided they can retain the entrepeneurial spirit that has served them so well.

Thanks A_L_S. Interesting. "The move is the latest example of consolidation in a sector which for years has been struggling against rising competition, pressure on fees and costs associated with new regulations such as Mifid II. City sources expect a slew of M&A deals in the sector in the months ahead."

Re-reading last weeks' Final Results reinforces my opinion of just how strong the results were. Combined with a deep-seated and re-iterated commitment to pay dividends, the figures are quite exceptional in my view: Astonishing: Revenue +36% PBT + 97% Cash + 55% (being £37m) EPS + 154% FY Div + 50% Shareholder Equity +9% "The Board's intention is to use earnings and cash flow to underpin shareholder returns through a combination of dividend payments and share buy backs into treasury. Our goal is to pay a stable ordinary dividend, reinvest into our Firm and return excess cash to shareholders " and "Consequently, we look forward to the future with cautious optimism." With the recent outperformance recorded at sector competitor Numis, the prospects for Cenkos look in my opinion to be very promising and it appears to me that the share offers exceptional value both in terms of dividend prospects and potential capital uplift. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

"Er why do you think that ?" Maybe because Cenkos has traded close to a yield of 10% in the past ... and a 9p dividend implies a 90p share price target ... What is soul destroying is Numis going from strength to strength :(

Simon Thompson has updated on Cenkos in his IC column today saying that he feels it is "prudent to bank profits" on the basis of the cautious outlook statement from the CEO in the results. HTTPS://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/comment/2018/04/03/on-a-profitable-earnings-beat/

... am clear here now ... took a day trade on 23rd and out. Cenkos trades close to a 10% yield historically speaking so 90p target for me. Good luck holders.
