Have not had time yet to have a detailed look at the interims. I see the FT weekend carried a IC buy recommendation due to novel range of auto injectors expected to launch in 2020. Says Investec-house broker-forecasting pre tax profits and EPS for year to 4/2018 of £35.8m and 60.9p going to £40.3m and 66.8p in following year. I do not see the share price doing very much either up or down.
Cerrito Any ideas on the current rise?
Cerrito Yes. I am still hanging in.
A testament to the solidity of the CSRT shareholder base was that today's RNS with news of a 1%+ increase in the holding of Neptune was the first change in holdings RNS since January this year.
The Market seems to like the results.
Had a quick read through of the results and small fall in share price seems about right. Was hoping for a sales increase of more than 2% in constant currency and an ebit increase of more than 4.1% but as they say this is a long lead time business. Note that 60% of their sales in Europe and less than 10% in the UK and no mention of Brexit-I guess it will make an appearance in the Risks section of the AR. or various reasons I have lightened up in the last months but a happy with what I have and I guess they will as normal have had a webcast this morning and I will need to go through that.
taken a small position on the break of the recent down trend. woody
I suppose yesterday’s share price fall was to be expected following the news on Voke/Dev200 but have to say that not really surprised by it especially given that BAT have been so tight mouthed. Furthermore BAT in their last interim and full year statement had waxed lyrical on NGP(Next Generation Product) but poor old Nicoventures never got mention. Glenn was asked about it in the interims webcast and stonewalled and referred people to BAT. That said I see that Edison following yesterday’s news have lowered their valuation range from 1459p/1421p to 1238p/1300p. On the full corporate front,Glenn seemed happy enough with what is going on in the webcast and echoed the positive comments in the Outlook Statement. Given the amount of business they do in Europe no mention in the webcast on Brexit-nor in the interims and I see in the last AR not classified as a significant risk.
Cerrito Surely if you are a big exporter then more pounds for your Euro at present. Even if we end up out of the single Market and get hit with say a 5% import tax into the EU then the current 10% drop in the £ value would more than cover it. At present and for the next 2-3 years it is a windfall, net of course of any hike import raw material rises.
Martini, as per Aesop's fable the tortoise can and does beat the hare. I did not make the AGM and would be interested to hear from anyone who did- I have quite a lot in this company-at least by my standards- and one reason for me not going was that I get(or at least I like to think I get) a good feel from the 2 analysts webcasts they have pa and the analysts ask on the whole good questions. I was very interested in how relaxed they are ref Brexit given their heavy European involvement.
The Market likes it. What am I doing in this "sensible" share?
Just listened to the webcast of the prelims. For those who will be listening need to be patient as they have about 10 minutes of music at the start. Upbeat presentation and good q and a. interesting this was held a week before the referendum and despite 2/3rds of sales in Europe ex UK no one asked about effects of referendum. An obvious question if I make the AGM Another thing I did not get a clear handle on is how much inventory risk they have but was pleased to see year end inventories were £30m against H2 sales of £276m so quick turnover. A good deal of discussion on dev 610 and fact that built a factory bigger than the Nicoventures one for that but I was not sure who has the risk if the orders are not there…especially as they mentioned that given high fixed costs they have a high operating leverage. Good to see positive comment on Voke. Continue to be comfortable with my holding and do not see myself as buying or selling.
Thanks for that aim_master Need to have a good look at the figures; I do see that 60%+ sales are in Europe so I went to see if they had a Risks section in these prelims to see what if anything they say on the referendum but they did not have this section(nothing unusual about that) so will need to wait till the annual report.
What caught my eye from this morning's announcement is that CSRT has 2k employees-never appreciated it was that big

Looking good going into the last day of 2015.
E-cigarettes will be prescribed on the NHS for the first time in the New Year but ministers are said to have tried to keep the move quiet over fears that GPs would be overrun by people demanding them. Doctors will soon be able to hand out the device to smokers who want to quit, a move that will reportedly cost the NHS in the region of £20 per kit and £10 a week for each patient's cartridges. But public health minister Jane Ellison is said to have hoped that the government could keep the news under wraps until the e-cigarettes are available via prescription in 2016. According to Nigel Nelson of the Sunday People, a Whitehall source said: 'We didn't want to make a song and dance about it because GPs would be overrun by people demanding it. 'But this is something we've been pushing for.' Ms Ellison had to reveal details of the e-cigarette plan after being asked a direct question by Labour MP Steve McCabe. She told him that the Government believed 'vaping' was 'significantly less harmful than smoking' and added that medicinal license applications were 'encouraged'. It followed last month's decision by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency to license British American Tobacco's e-Voke.

Gone through the interims. All rather complicated given trying to work out the impact of the Aesica acquisition and the fact that they did not have a results presentation webcast-I find these very useful. Overall I have the sense that we could have done with more info. Broadly speaking the kind of results we have come to expect- solid steady progress. Liked the cash flow statement with net cash from operating activities at £16 m well in excess of the £11m combined of investment and equity dividend outflows. Also the organic sales growth of both Bespak and Aesica. I was reminded of the importance of Europe to Aesica-ie European sales have gone up from £28m to £85m.Also Aesica had issues with profitability-its operating profit before special items was only £5m compared to Bespak's £11.5m and Aiseca's total assets at £286m dwarfed those of Bespak at £110m. Also Goodwill represents more than 25% of total assets and will be V interesting to read the footnotes on valuation of goodwill in the annual report. I am not planning to either buy or sell in the immediate future and my take is that for the next few months the share price will be on the 940/1020 range. PS Nicoventures seems to have gone V quiet PPS I see that following the results Investec have a buy with a tp at 1033 and Brewin Dolphin a hold-both of which to me are in the zone. I see that revenue projections for this FY are unchanged at £284.95m and earnings also unchanged at 50.85p PPPS I see they are talking about confidence in meeting board's expectations for the Full year and would be good if we knew what it is.
