"we expect"! LOL http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&cb=1248558450&article=22200799&symbol=L%5ECPS "Over 74% of Cpl's gross profit is generated from professional and specialist recruitment, and key markets for the Group such as the services sector are expected to continue to experience job growth"

YES they did. I quote "we expect that the Group's profit for the year will be in line with market expectations".

NO they did not say "profits will be in line" THEY SAID "we expect" they will be in line with the warning of "uncertain" Its a hint of things are getting worse since H1 as reflected in the economy albeit at a slower pace but sinking is still sinking!

Yes. They did. Really! Despite these difficult circumstances the Group has remained profitable throughout the year to 30 June 2009. After taking account of impairment charges we expect that the Group's profit for the year will be in line with market expectations, and our balance sheet remains strong. Note that profits will be in line - AFTER taking account of impairment charges. Of course the remainder of 2009 is uncertain. They would be mental not to even acknowledge as such. However - based on what they have seen so far - which is half the year - the expect to be in line with market expectations even after writing some of their investments down. Looks like the balance sheet will be even stronger this year than last.

Did they really! "It is impossible to predict with any accuracy whether the markets in which the Group operates will experience any significant improvement in the foreseeable future, and accordingly the outlook for the Group for the remainder of 2009 remains uncertain"

LBO, What makes you think revenues are falling faster than they cust costs? They have guided the market that they expect to meet forecasts this year? We all know Ireland is in a terrible state - but - I repeat - they tell us that they will meet forecast this year.

You are missing the warning signs! Revenues are falling faster then they can cut costs (thus the distressed acquisitions) and they are in the worst possible sector in this recession. Its only a matter of time before they are losing money but DYOR. CPL profitable but warns of uncertainty ahead as it adjusts to difficult conditions http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/cpl-profitable-but-warns-of-uncertainty-ahead-as-it-adjusts-to-difficult-conditions-1813431.html Business and debt lawsuits double in wake of downturn http://www.independent.ie/national-news/business-and-debt-lawsuits-double-in-wake-of-downturn-1838257.html

LBO, You appear to have missed the next sentence. The Irish economy has seen a marked and sustained reduction in activity in recent times and this has had a significant adverse effect on employment figures, the availability of jobs and the demand for recruitment and related services. The CPL Group has responded to these challenges by reducing costs in a careful and controlled manner, by making changes to our business model to respond to new market conditions and by availing of opportunities presented by the difficult economic environment. Despite these difficult circumstances the Group has remained profitable throughout the year to 30 June 2009. After taking account of impairment charges we expect that the Group's profit for the year will be in line with market expectations, and our balance sheet remains strong. So despite the abominable conditions, they expect to be profitable this year - in line ith market expectations - which has them on an expected EPS of 10p. Given the fact the share price is entirely covered by net current assets & they have no long term debt, I really see no need to panic.

I think you may have your head in the sand! Even CPL are warning its getting worse. How long before those falling sales and profits become losses and the cash is being burned?

The rate of people hiring won't deteriorate - it's already at a tiny fraction of what it was 2 years ago. The company has shown that it can remain profitable in that kind of market - a remarkable achievement IMV. As stated, the share price is completely covered by cash - so as long as they continue to cut their cloth accordingly, the company will remain a safe bet. When their markets (it's nonty only Ireland any more) do recover, the share priuce will do too.

"Company is still profitable - even in the worst possible market conditons" Unemployment is still rising and nobody expects firms to even think about starting recruiting for another year or two at least even if the recovery comes so I suspect they have not even glimpsed the "the worst possible market conditons" yet. http://www.finfacts.ie/irishfinancenews/article_1017068.shtml Cowen says dole claimants will rise to 500,000 by Christmas; Irish unemployment to remain elevated for extended period

http://www.fxcentre.com/news.asp?2437147 Fifty three thousand more people joined the dole queues in the first three months of this year compared to the last quarter of 2008 with employment down a staggering 158,500 compared to the first quarter of last year. http://www.rte.ie/business/2009/morningrep/download/0625davy.pdf Next week marks the end of CPL's financial year, and we expect that the group will likely issue a pre-close statement to coincide with the year-end. With this in mind, we are taking the opportuniy to remind investors of our current thinking. It is clear that the current Irish economic climate is extremely challenging, and we expect it to remain so for the next 18 months. Unemployment now stands at 11.8%, and we expect the rate to peak below 15% in late 2010. The one positive glimmer is that the rate of job loss increases is at least slowing, having peaked in January-February 2009. Accordingly, we are currently forecasting a 34% drop in Net Fee Income (NFI) in FY 2009 followed by a further 36% cut in FY 2010. From the peak, permanent NFI is now forecast to fall 73%, while temporary decreases 45%.

LBO, They have bundles & bundles of cash. It covers most of the share price. There won't be a right issue. They also have real experience of surviving a market that goes against them quickly. They were very exposed to the tech market before the dot bomb crash - managing to diversify away just before, during & after. I believe they will handle the current problems as well as they can be handled & expect them to receover quickly once the market recovers - though this might take a while.
