13:44 Group (LON:CTG) – looking for a rise up in priceThe business services group, which can trace its origins back some 175 years ago, saw a 45.1% advance in its revenues to £61.3m (£42.2m) for the year to end December last.That bounce pushed it back into pre-tax profits of £3.9m (£5.7m loss), worth 13.7p (loss 16.7p) per share in earnings and paying a dividend of 3.0p (1.3p).Shore Capital analyst Peter Ashworth considers that the group is significantly undervalued, with its shares trading on just around nine times current year earnings estimates of 12.2p. He sees £71m sales, £3.9m profits and a 3.5p dividend this year.For next year he has estimates of £76m sales, £4.8m profits,15.0p earnings and a 4.0p dividend.The shares, now at just 115p, have touched 139.60p in the last year and look to me as though they can rise back up there over the coming year, even possibly breaking through my price aim level.
Wicked spread though and very illiquid means having to buy in tranches. Not conducive to making gains on short term moves.
Picked up a few more here in the hope of the results being "significantly ahead of market expectations" lights a fire under the price.
...from last year....

Christie Group plc published interims for the 6 months to June 2021. The Group expects to exceed the current market operating profit view for the year after posting H1 21 operating profit of £1.8m on revenue of £28.6m. EPS returned to positive territory at 3.17p, an interim dividend was reinstated and the balance sheet remains strong. Optimistic sounding comment from management suggests that the H2 outlook is also pretty rosy. Revenues are rebounding from COVID although still have a way to go to return to pre-COVID peaks. Meanwhile valuation is pretty attractive, both forward PE ratio and PS ratio are top quartile for the sector. But there is still a £15m underfunded pension liability. The company is going in the right direction, but isn’t overly exciting just yet. One to monitor for now....from WealthOracleAM

I'm not sure I've ever heard that phrase. Certainly very un-Christie like.
It's a while since I heard a very significantly ahead :-)
Very significantly in excess of current market expectations.
I have joined you today.

Nonetheless, should our year end progress continue as anticipated, we continue to expect our results for the full year to exceed current market expectations.

We intend to issue a further trading up date concerning the current year, early in 2022."

My tiny toehold was sold at open today, following the miserable H1 results.

- independent NED with remuneration expertise resigns
- pension deficit up by £4.75m to almost £17m (compare with market cap!)
- £6m LBT in 6 months, blamed entirely on covid, with second wave taking off

Counterpoints that give some hope:
- Lord Lee had topped up his big stake and called it "undervalued" in his FT column on 3 October
- The PFS business would probably still be profitable in a future normal year
- Still a lot (£13m) of (gross) cash on the balance sheet, which gives some short term flexibility (inflows from receivables and loan)

With poor and deteriorating governance, high remuneration, no institutional investors (good luck with any capital raising!) and losses that seem likely to continue with covid, I prefer to reallocate my money and attention elsewhere.

I have nothing against a quiet bulletin board, but 6 months of silence?! I retain a tiny toehold here only, as the combination of a lossmaking 2020, the pension deficit, and too highly compensated and intransigent management continuing to fund several lossmaking subsidiaries did not appeal very much.

I note that the combined(!) Chair/CEO shifted much of his stake to his son (so that any sale is not reportable, perhaps?), and I was not too impressed by a quick skim of the annual report.

The AGM statement today has some big positives in that the SISS business (which should have been restructured five years ago) seems to have been cut quite a bit, and an apparent new focus on margins is refreshing. The gratitude to customers who paid early makes me worry that they are on the ropes, though.

I am looking forward to seeing the 1H report in October, in particular the latest size of the pension deficit and further comments on strategy, restructuring and outlook.

I've bought in
This is in it?
Lord Lee ISA holding :-)
Say again?

Big rise today
I think you have judged the conditions surrounding Orridge very well. Have you ever worked or connected with that side of the business? Thanks
Sadly I failed my Bletchley Park entrance exams, so am unable to decipher the previous two postings...

Not a lot of interest here so might as well post this announcement:-

We wish Ascona Group every success in the future and thank our loyal and hardworking staff for all their help in making the Cornwall Garage Group such a happy and successful family business. We'd also like to thank the Christie & Co team for all their hard work, persistence, dedication and advice throughout the process, from marketing through to completion."

They agreed to a full and open marketing campaign which exposed the opportunity to the entire market. We received significant interest in the group as a whole and over 100 offers for individual sites. We wish Darren and his team well with integrating 17 sites in to the expanding Ascona Group portfolio and are very pleased to have played a large part in their expansion plans. with this pivotal acquisition."
