This was nicely snuck in to the notes:

In assessing going concern, the Directors have prepared scenarios using the Board approved Group forecast for 2023 and management expectations for 2024. The base case scenario incorporates the latest trends on revenue, costs, and margins; market expectations that demand for OE products will improve from Q4; ongoing benefits from previous price rises; additional H2 price rises in Signals & Components; benefits from H2 cost reduction programmes (including product changes); existing order backlog; and the expected conversion rates for the improved pipeline of potential orders.

In a plausible downside scenario, the Directors have assumed that the expected growth in revenue from market conditions returning to normal for both OE and delayed capex projects occurs but that margins remain under pressure from inflation, and we see lower benefits from product cost reductions and factory efficiency improvements. The scenario modelling also includes the potential for a negative outcome from the ongoing Sanmina litigation (see note 11).

Under a plausible downside scenario, the Group has forecasted a potential breach of its Interest Cover covenant, which gives rise to a material uncertainty, and which may cast significant doubt on the entity's ability to continue as a going concern, meaning it may be unable to realise its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business.

Management has proactively engaged in a series of discussions with its lender to seek flexibility in its covenants in the short term. Encouragingly, the indications from these advanced discussions suggest support to provide such flexibility. However, as of the date of publication of this interim financial information, formal agreements regarding the covenant flexibility have not been finalised.

In light of the aforementioned matters, the Board of Directors has diligently considered the going concern basis in preparing this interim financial information. While acknowledging the outstanding formalisation of covenant flexibility arrangements and resulting material uncertainty, the directors have concluded that, given the positive indications from the lender, it remains appropriate to continue to adopt the going concern basis in the preparation of this interim financial information.


Unfortunately I've lost my patience with this stock - I managed to extricate myself at a small loss back in 2017 but have been following since. It seems current CEO was on the watch when the whole Samnina disaster unfolded (she was CFO then, but presumably had a strong voice at the table), the business has been distinctly unimpressive since then and now we've got another sudden CFO departure (who knows, but feels like he's been thrown under the bus for something). Board's plans to return the Group to life just feels like the same old same old - this is an amazing market opportunity (I genuinely believe they have excellent products), but the management of the business has been diabolical for over a decade and nothing tells me they have the capabilities to pull off their transformation plan, if indeed they're around long enough to try. I'm still astonished it hasn't been taken out.

20% on the price and no posts ? That's typical of a bottom !

...from last year...

Company overview:Dialight is the world leader in LED industrial lighting technology, with more than 50 years of history, currently operating in more than 10 countries. The company has 2 business lines- Lighting, and Signals and Components. The former is focused on LED solutions and industrial applications, and the latter on status indication components for OEM, industrial,  automotive and traffic signals markets. Dialight’s ambition is to provide the most energy-efficient and reliable LED solutions on the market. The company operates in specific niches where hazardous location certifications are required. Recent estimations give DIA the highest market share in industrials at 32%. Expectations are that additional £2bn market can be reached by segmentation of market and development of new products. The presence of one acquisition over the past 5 years and high levels of CapEx are clear sign of organic growth.
Dialight has had rough 2 years, with net losses at the end of both 2020 and 2019, due to lower revenue and litigation issues with former outsourced partner. In addition, gross profit margin for 2020 was also down compared to 2018 and 2019, caused by the pandemic environment. 2021 started on a more positive note, with their first update in May stating trading is line with expectations and orders are actually ahead. They increased inventory foreseeing material shortages. In their latest trading update, DIA is confirming an order growth of 23% and revenue growth at 17%. More good news come from the fact that company has returned to underlying operating profit of £1.5m for the H1 2021 and is looking forward to two new product launches in H2. Expectations for the full year are not changed, which is something to be aware of, as trading is obviously good....from WealthOracleAM

I see DIA is being kicked out of the SmallCap index. Lack of liquidity?

Watched DIA for years and they have a knack of disappointing - Profit Warning Central.

That said, some interesting activity here and it looks like some keen buyers in the market who have just picked up the full 8.8% position of DBAY.

Normally that kind of buying is a precursor to a pop higher, but you can never be sure with the likes of DIA.

Still, it is something of note for anyone watching or any holders (speculate away) - DIA can move 20p in either direction on nothing volume so any short term traders beware too!

Hi all,

My mate Peter @Conkers3 and myself did a ‘Twin Petes Investing’ Podcast last week and DIA was one of the Stocks we discussed, and I think it has a lot of potential as a Recovery play, although neither of us hold it at the moment.

We also discussed a lot about Markets and the outlook for Summer and into the Autumn, and as always we also chatted about loads of other Stocks and Ideas for research and a fair bit of educational stuff with regards to Investing and Portfolio Management (and without doubt some important psychology stuff always creeps in).

Anyway, if you use Youtube, Apple, Audioboom, Overcast, Google+ or Spotify, Podchaser etc. you can find it under the 'Conkers Corner' Channel (you want Podcast TPI 49) and you can find it on Soundcloud at the link below.

I hope you enjoy it and find it useful, we try to keep them light and they are totally unscripted, with the intent being that it is like you are eavesdropping on us having a chat down the local boozer.

Cheers, WD

And you can hear it on YouTube here:

Yet another disaster - This is like watching a house crumbling as built on sand - slow and progressive -

Can anyone see light at the end of the tunnel?

Dialight plc (the "Company")

Director/ PDMR Dealing

The Company has been notified today of the following sale and subsequent re-purchase on behalf of Stephen Bird, a Non-Executive Director of the Company, of 12,078 ordinary shares of GBP0.0189 each in the Company (the "Transactions"). The sale was due to an error (contrary to his express instructions) by his fund administrator Investec Wealth & Investment, and the purchase was the unwinding of the previous error. Stephen Bird made no profit or loss as a result of the Transactions and his resultant shareholding after the sale and subsequent re-purchase is unchanged (41,728 ordinary shares, representing 0.128% of the total issued share capital of the Company).

This notification was received by the Company on 24 December 2019. The details of the Transactions are provided later in this announcement.
