This is about the 5th time that my initial headline has been accurate. CPL come out with stellar rerults after stellar results after stellar results. This time, we have - PBT up 75% (after an incrase of 86% last year) - EPS up 78% - revenue up 42% (all organic) See for yourself below. CPL RESOURCES PLC Interim Statement for the Six Month Period to 31 December 2006 CPL resources plc today (Thursday 25 January December 2007) released its interim statement for the six month period to 31 December 2006. Key highlights include: Profitability and shareholder value • Profit before tax of €8 million, up 75% • Record earnings per share of 18.9 cent, an increase of 78% • Interim dividend proposed of 1.75 cent Operational performance • Revenue of €94 million for the 6 months, representing growth of 42% year on year • Gross profit of €19.9 million, up 51% from €13 million in the period to December 2005 • Cash balances of €26.2 million at 30 December 2006 (€21.3 million at 30 June 2006) • Improved conversion ratio of 40.6% It is a pleasure to report record interim results for Cpl Resources plc in the period to 31 December 2006. CPL achieved another period of excellent growth across all its businesses, increasing total revenues by 42% to €94 million. With income outpacing costs, pre-tax profits rose by 75% to more than €8 million. Our growth, which was entirely organic in the period, is particularly pleasing as it follows a 86% increase in profit before tax in the previous year. Our clients are operating in a vibrant economy where, in many sectors, demand for skills continues to exceed supply. As the leading provider of employment services to the Irish market we are confident that we can continue to grow our business by anticipating and meeting the changing needs of employers and skilled people across the spectrum of business areas in which we operate. We are also alive to growth opportunities presented by potential acquisition targets in Ireland and elsewhere. Results Overview Six months to Six months to % change 31 December 2006 31 December 2005 €000's €000's Revenue 94,181 66,333 42% Gross profit 19,859 13,127 51% Profit before tax 8,059 4,605 75% EPS 18.9 cent 10.6 cent 78% Net fee income in our permanent placement business increased by 46% over the prior year, with all divisions performing well. This performance has been helped by increased demand for IT, telecoms and finance professionals. Our contractor and temporary fees have increased by 57%, reflecting growth in the demand for non-permanent staff in all areas, including office management and administration, customer service, engineering, healthcare and manufacturing operations, and for temporary staff in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, clinical research and medical device industries. Newer areas of our business also performed well in the period. These included Cpl Managed Services, which manages selected business processes (including call centres, administrative services and recruitment solutions) on behalf of clients. The Group continued to focus on cost control and efficiencies during the period. A 51% increase in gross profit was translated to a 75% increase in profit before tax demonstrating the Group's operating leverage. The conversion ratio of gross profit to net profit before tax was 40.6% in the six months to December 2006 compared with 35% in the same period last year. The Group had cash balances of €26.2 million at 31 December 2006. Notwithstanding the working capital demands associated with strong growth in business activity, this figure is €5 million higher than the corresponding balance at 30 June 2006. The Board is recommending an interim dividend of 1.75 cent per share. The dividend will be payable on 2 March 2007 to shareholders on the company's register at the close of business on the record date of 2 February 2007.

CPL communicated their H1 figures on the 24th last year. Could today's rise be because somebody has managed to get a sneaky peak & has spotted that these are about to go up again.

CPL are doing it again!!! The Chairman of CPL Resources plc, John Hennessy, made the following statement at the Company's Annual General Meeting today. 'The CPL Group has continued to perform strongly since 30 June 2006 and results for the six months to 31 December 2006 are likely to exceed current market expectations. Trading has been strong across most sectors of the group's business, reflecting continued growth in the Irish economy and labour market. The Group's permanent placement business has continued to perform well, and demand remains buoyant for temporary and contract employees. Current trading conditions indicate that the business will continue to perform well over the coming months.'

Thanks for the advice primrose. I think I will have to look at putting it into a tracker fund then. Why are you mental at work? That makes me a bit worried about your investments!!

Dusty, I'm mental busy at work - hence the silence. If you rely on the opinions of others on here to make your investment dceisions, you are really going to come a cropper. In the end, you really have to feel confident in your own judgement - otherwise, you would be much safer putting your money inty funds that are managed by experts.

I nearly did as I took your silence as that you were unsure about this company. But luckily I held onto it. I'm worried that you sold given your silence....

Dusty, I really hope you haven't sold. Another stonking set of results!!! Organic turnover growth of over 40%. Profitability up over 80% We remain confident in our ability to take advantage of favourable economic conditions and to identify and pursue opportunities for further growth, whether organically or by acquisition.' There is no way I'm selling into these results. This is a great company. Lots more growth to come IMHO.
