7 million odd of goodwill and other intangibles,an acquisition is possible though.

Quite a strong balance sheet with Current Assets exceeding Total Liabilities.

Ive exited with profits(small position). I was undecided but the general Market sentiment and poor performance of my PF over the last month has swayed my decision. GLA

Market a little disappointed I guess. I've held these happily for quite a while too, and will continue to hold, but with my finger a little closer to the sell button in case the chart starts to turn negative.

Yep, mixed bag sums it up. I took my original stake+profit out recently (initial investment just over 2yrs ago) but am going to leave the remainder running even though it looks fully valued at the moment.

Prezzie, It may feel like a long journey if you have been a holder for three years and we are only back to where we started, but higher highs and a rising trend since 2013 tells me that this is still heading in the right direction and has potential to fulfil. In 2014 they increased sales by £1.60m, but improved EBITDA by £281k, so perhaps £5.0m of extra sales would give us 3x that figure. I would suggest that if they are winning contracts based on service then they can increase prices. Gearing – borrowing has fallen from 2.28m in 2011 to 0.17m in 2014 so not much to worry about in my opinion and there is now debt capacity to acquire. Note the reduction in finance cost. I take your point on the funding gap between debtors and creditors but the invoice discounting will take care of that. So growth is still an option. The high intangibles is part of the high risk factor, but this benefits the cash generation (and lower the tax paid) via the depreciation/amortisation figure and cash generated from operations of £666k is not bad (I like that number too!). I had not picked up on the R&D capitalisation. Is this a one off or an annual event? I guess we will learn a little more all in good time. GLA

Fair enough, battlebus. I'm up by about a third (happy) but it has taken quite a time(less happy). At the moment I'm sitting on the fence and interested to hear other people's views on what is, thankfully, a constructive board.

You don't sound like a happy holder to me...... Lots of positives to come, why your complaining about them announcing contract I don't know, better to provide shareholders with as much news as possible even if it is for lesser amounts. They have also RNS's some decent contracts of late, if I remember right they even won by not reducing their margins. Quality! Also lots to come with Fastvein. I'd also query your funding synopsis never mind some of your other comments. Anyway it's your view, I'm very happy with the progress being made.

Lanzarote. I am a shareholder, showing a reasonable profit but I can't quite share your enthusiasm. Specifically -The share price is only back to where it was 3 years ago. -Margins. For a business with margins of 22% gross and 5% net, £5m of extra sales would, I estimate, only generate about £0.5m profit. Really worthwhile increases in profits can only come from cutting costs or increasing prices. They can't cut wages and I doubt whether there is much scope on pricing. Developing products or services with higher margins will take a long time. It's taken Sebastian Morley about 10 years to get to where we are now. -Note that half year profits were flattered by capitalised R & D. -The gearing is relatively low in relation to total assets but not if you strip out the intangibles. The relationship between debtors a creditors suggests that every £1m of extra sales will need £0.3m of funding. With the low margins, each extra £1m of sales is unlikely to generate much more than £0.1m of cash flow. This is not a scalable business in its present form, except by issuing shares. -The eps growth has only just arrived after many years of waiting. -Cash generation. See my comment above. -Prospects are just that. Issuing an RNS for an order of £0.1m when annual sales are £15m seems a bit daft to me. I'm not a seller at the moment but will look carefully at the annual accounts. Incidentally, why on earth does it take 4 months or more for such a simple company to add up the numbers and tell us the results?

Good to see the offer price move up this morning, you couldn't buy in size at 49p for a while.

This microcap has been on my watch list for a while, and I am hoping it will bring high reward for high risk noting the £7.0m market cap. I have learnt that it is difficult to buy in any quantity when there is good news about, so you have to buy at the quiet times. I picked up a few ahead of the results which are due in early November. There are some positive comments around the management team who are very focussed on service, both from customers (Odeon) and their own staff (via recruitment sites). News that they have won more contracts recently based upon service rather than price is encouraging. I am surprised that there has not been a bigger reaction to the recent contract news in the share price so perhaps this share is still off most peoples’ radar. As I understand it - A rising share price over three years - An interim dividend and expected first final dividend to come - Lowly geared - Improving margins - Retained customer base - Success at 2014 Commonwealth Games has led to proactive sales growth - A broker with a 60p target - Strong EPS growth - Further growth to come through acquisition or franchise - Cash generative - Prospects of Fastvein biometric scanners I am unclear just how profitable the Fastvein element is. Do they receive a one off nominal fee or are there repeat revenues as part of servicing contracts? Let us hope it has an interesting run up to the end of the year, but it could be one to tuck away for a couple of years if they get the formula right. DYOR. 8-)

SP could rise quite strongly if progress continues. Less than £15m shares in issue so a relatively small demand will have an effect.
