but the spread of broker forecasts is tight so it may be that the company feels the market is already well informed.

Revenue growth as usual but marked lack of detail compared to last year - specifically net cash and profit guidance figure.

OK. I think I’ve managed to work out what is going on – As at 31/12/12 they had net cash of £15m. During 2013 they generated £6.3m cash from operations and £1.3m from disposals (add to the original £15m and that gives you £23.2m) and spent – £9.3m capital expenditure (of which £4.4m was product development) £2.2m tax £4.6m dividend Leaves £7.1m cash reported H1/14 During H1/14 they generated £7.3m operating cash (add to £7.1m existing gives £14.4m) and spent – £3.2m working capital £1.8m tax £3.3m capital expenditure (of which £1.5m was for product development) £3.1m dividend Leaves £3m cash (£2.8m after exchange rate adjustments) We are told in the last IMS that there was net debt of £4.2m. The fact is, they’ve burned the best part of £40m cash over the 22 months from 31/12/12 to 31/10/14. That’s around £1.8m per month. Yes, a proportion of that is capital expenditure but, even then, a slug of that is for ‘product development’ which is presumably an ongoing requirement if they want to keep ahead of developments in the lighting market and the more they grow, the more ‘working capital’ they need. If they carry on at this rate, it seems to me that they’ve got to add around £20m/year of operating cash to existing income to sustain this level of cashflow. Something has to give.

People misunderstand, or pretend to misunderstand, that DIA makes high-end LED lighting assemblies and not 5p LEDs. These products are for a highly regulated market where they are market leaders. Thus the striking year on year growth in this area of their business which should drive the share price over next few years.

Do you lot actually read the RNS or not it states quite clearly where the funds have gone. Moving on up!!!!!!!!!!! "The Group's net debt at the end of October was GBP4.2m compared with GBP1m of net cash at the same stage in 2013. The absorption of cash reflects higher working capital due to our growth in Lighting and the increased investment highlighted above." I think the Ford deal is quite significant, will be a good sales example of the companies superb products. IC..... I thought you were an idiot and you have proved me right.

Yes, the two points you mention are indeed "the increased investment highlighted above" but to go from +£15m cash to a £25m loan facility is a hell of an investment! It would be nice to understand when or if these levels of capital expenditure will end.

jeffian:> Have not tried to analyse in detail but a I have always assumed that a significant chunk must have gone on setting up their own sales network in the USA after they parted company with their distributor plus (from memory)did they not set up a new factory in Mexico or the Far East but cannot find details during a quick search of their new web-site ? Having sold all but a token quantity had dropped below instant radar awareness.

PUGUGLY, Like you, I usually look at eps, eps growth and P/E ratios in my investment decisions, but I also look at cashflows. I've been caught out in the past by companies which appear profitable but are not! What do you think about my post #2753? Up until 2012, the company was not only profitable and growing, but it also generated plenty of cash and had net cash on the balance sheet. That has reversed to the point where they are net debtors and that trend appear to be continuing. Their explanation that "The absorption of cash reflects higher working capital due to our growth in Lighting and the increased investment highlighted above" rings a bit hollow to me. Can you explain to me, if they're so profitable, where's the cash going?

Having sold most of holding at higher prices considered repuchase of some but based on Investec's note forward p/e still to high given competitive nature of market place and product life (so long we may all (at least the older amongst us) be dead by the time the customer has to replace) [eps in decimals of £ at price of 720p Historic eps 2013 UNDERLYING 0.316 Estimated eps 2014…………………… 0.373 Estimated eps 2015…………………… 0.485 Forward pe ratio…2014R30;……230;.. 19.3 Forward pe ratio…2015R30;……230;.. 14.8 Historic p/e 2013 22.7 Downside target - thoughts ??

Added to my short on that spike first thing this morning. Back to 700p already! Some support should be around this level, otherwise down to 580p as next stop. All IMHO of course :-)

Jeff, it is a concern, i only got as far as looking at half year results, admin expenses increased by 1.4m, 8m draw down on banking facility and gross profit increased less than sales, not great, see why the shorters have done well
