Very positive results, this is exactly the kind of company I want in the portfolio, constantly growing, increasing EPS and dividend, 24th consecutive increase, lots of interesting info in finals.

I've a vested interest, being a shareholder here and in Applegreen. I'd like to see DCC buy them and roll out their offering, if possible, to their own petrol retail stations, or are they tied to the Shell branding? We could make a lot more profit if we put some retail offerings into all those unmanned stations as well. Give me double the Applegreen share price and I'll sell (to myself)!

I'm inherently suspicious of companies that grow through acquisitions. There's a famous quote by Mr. Buffet, which I won't bore you with and Peter Lynch's coining of the word 'deworsification' spring to mind. However,in the case of two notable companies, DCC being one, I'm happy to suspend my disbelief. They've executed on their strategy year in, year out. They (almost)never miss their targets. When they do, it's acceptable,i e, weather - related. Their strategy of becoming number 1 or 2 in the markets they enter has been doggedly pursued. This stated purpose, their track record and their entry into the US LPG market indicate they deserve their place as one of my 'Big Four' single stocks. The only question now is, do I add again?

Sold a bond fund to buy more of these today.If they can continue to manage their bolt ons and not overpay for acquisitions, then we're in for some ride.The US LPG market is one of several fronts that are in their sights,with the Asia Pacific market also entered.They have proved their ability to scale up and maintain tight cost control.Their ROI is impressive.What they've got to watch out for is overstretching management functions.It's all very well to oversee the ops remotely from the Dublin office but they've got to maintain that tight connection with local managements.I like that they don't try to buy turnarounds, I'll avoid the famous Warren Buffet quote on that subject.

I own shedloads of these.I usually hunker down and do nothing when Mr. Market throws a tantrum.However,if these fall a little more I'll have to buy another batch.

Interesting "spin" (or as I call it "political propaganda")... LPG is a by-product, mainly, of oil refining! (Propane: C3H8 and Butane:C4H10 so 3 times and 4 times more carbon than methane). I wonder what the carbon footprint is of the production of pressure containers? Lol! (I hold DCC so don't care if someone spins this tbh!)

Rodda’s hits carbon & cost targets by switching from oil to LPG Posted on 15 Jan 2018 by The Manufacturer Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) was the perfect fit for Cornish dairy manufacturer Rodda's, saving the business 70 tonnes on CO2 emissions and 11% on fuel costs. Rodda’s hits carbon and cost targets by switching from oil to LPG - image courtesy of Flogas Britain. Rodda’s hits carbon and cost targets by switching from oil to LPG – image courtesy of Flogas Britain. Wishing to reduce its carbon footprint (while at the same time reduce costs), Rodda’s knew the time had come to move away from oil as the energy source for its production process. The company’s main uses of fuel are for steam generation used in the pasteurisation separation system, heating the cleaning equipment and powering the heat exchanger CIP system. It is vital these systems receive a controllable, consistent and uninterrupted supply of fuel. Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) from Flogas Britain was the perfect fit for Rodda’s. It’s a proven energy source, offering huge financial and carbon savings when compared to all grades of oil. Rodda’s Operations Manager, Chris Quelch explains: “There were numerous reasons for converting from oil to LPG and we’ve seen many benefits. “CO2 was the main source of focus, and since installing our LPG system, we’ve reduced CO2 emissions by 70 tonnes a year. This is hugely important to us given our focus on hitting our set environmental targets “Naturally, we also wanted to reduce costs, and switching to LPG, has saved us 11% on fuel alone. With LPG another more hidden benefit has been a large reduction in boiler servicing. This means the boiler isn’t offline as much, giving us quite a significant time saving, but also increases the amount of money the switch to LPG has saved us. “We’ve seen big changes in efficiency too. Whereas we used to get an 8:1 burn ratio with oil, we now get 11:1 with LPG. The burners now run for longer, but on a lower load, reducing the shock on the boiler. This will also help keep maintenance requirements (and costs) down.” As with most installs of this size, there were a few logistical challenges to overcome, but these were easily dealt with by Flogas. The expert team provided a start-to-finish, turnkey LPG service to maximise heating performance and minimise disruption. Quelch continues: “As with every part of this project, the Flogas team handled the challenges professionally and efficiently. One of the reasons we chose Flogas for our LPG project was that they offered a fully managed solution – the whole package. This meant that we were assured of a start to finish solution taking into consideration all of our individual requirements.” In terms of payback, Rodda’s was expecting to recoup its outlay in 18 months; however the company hit its target even earlier, as Quelch explains: “The project has paid for itself in just over a year, which was beyond our expectations. It’s very impressive.” Lee Gannon, managing director at Flogas, concludes: “Dairy production can be an energy-intensive process, which has a knock-on effect on costs and emissions. This is something that Rodda’s recognised within its own business, and was keen to address. The results of a simple switch from oil to LPG speak for themselves, and Rodda’s will be enjoying tangible financial and environmental savings for years to come.” For more information on how switching from oil to LPG could benefit your business, please visit www.flogas.co.uk.

Hopefully beginnings of a break-out to the 8100’s broker targets... it’s an expensive share tho (part of my defensives).

It's a small add-on in Deuschland but should be seen in a 600 million plus pounds of acquisitions in the financial year.Also, perhaps,as it takes them into refrigerant gases.If this global warming thing hits the home heating market,we can always cool them down!!!

Davy stockbrokers estimate they will have another £700 million to spend on acquisitions next year after spending £500 million this year.

Well, they’ve now used the fire chest to break out of Europe. Looks like Global LPG is target market with lots more to come.

If DCC has any spare cash ( and they have quite a firechest) I would like them to buy another of my top ten holdings, Applegreen. There would be synergies and also DCC would continue ' breaking out of Europe as Applegreen could build on its nascient US portfolio.
