Meant to say, it would be interesting to hear other holders views..

The next couple of years promise to be busy on the political front, so should help this operationally geared recovery play........... I also struggle to think, given his background, that Lord Ashcroft would leave this lying at such low levels..

He is a nice guy - but not a CEO. Ashcroft is still running this - as a Private Company. it is a listed company in name only.... the sooner it is taken off the market the better. Shame

The fact that they have appointed a new guy makes not one jot of difference in fact its a bit like moving the deck chairs around on the Titanic The company CANNOT grow to any meaningful size in its area of operation so what is it going to do....................shuffle the deck chairs

What is more concerning (even more) is the shambles on the Board. The new Chairman - then CEO has now left. For "personal" reasons - but still very strange. The ex CEO (now FD) is not promoted again - instead someone from within who has never even been on the Board and is now a plc CEO. And Andy Wilson (Lord Ashcroft's man) is back as Chairman - presumably not independent. What is going on ?

Had a quick look...good to see revenue going up so well and also that they have started to get from revenues from the Capita training contract; also increase in margins. And yet all we have to show for it is a barely positive overall EBITDA..also note that the EBITDA for the 6 months ending Sept 13 from the operating side was £400k(and this included all the conference seasons) compared to £1.5m for the nine months to 313...no apparent reason for such a drop.

4124 They may have been started by DODS but have no idea how they became part of Dods' stable. I have the Sept 26 AGM in my diary and hope I can make it-have not been for a couple of years. If I cannot and one of you can good to ensure that the following is on track quote Our information monitoring service is expected to be on the new technology platform from October of this year unquote Good to see that they are getting digital subs overseas but I am assuming they are selling their UK monitoring services into Germany, France etcet rather than setting up a German monitoring service. Incidentally for the anoraks like me the Goodwill section of the annual report makes interesting reading ie increasing the cost of capital very modestly from the current one of 10.97% to 11.06% increases the impairment charge by £304k ie more than 5% of marcap

Has anyone read anything about new acquisitions ? If you look at hxxp://www.publictechnology.net/about this states that they are owned by Dods as does PublicTenders.net. I may have missed this - but there was no RNS that I know about and they are not mentioned in the recent Annual Report. How much was spent ? Are they profitable ? What else was acquired ?

In simple terms this is going nowhere and needs fresh ideas.

The worrying things for me coming out of the announcement today are: 1. £634k of costs of redundancy and payments in lieu. Presume that £383k is re the CEO - but still a large amount for a Group of this size. 2. Reduction of £126k in the deferred consideration for Politics Home. This presumably means that the business is not now doing as well as they thought it would (is it part of the reduction in goodwill) 3. 13% increase in sales staff - but sales are down on the comparative period. So is this more sales people and cost - but not more revenue ? 4. Presumably the narrative in the cash flow of the £6.893m is not correct - it says "Results from Discontinued Operations" - but is the impairment charge. Presumably the auditors are paid to review the accounts ? 5. The Chairman is stepping down - leaving a Board over-populated with Lord A's people (William Wells and Andrew Wilson). Will be interesting to see who comes in. Overall, £0.4m of EBITDA is not great compared to prior periods. It will be interesting to see if the acquisitions drag it down - or whether the undoubted strengths of the subs revenues allows for some growth in 2013/14.

Not very much in the financial figures to justify a £13m marcap; my current thinking is to hold what I have.and have no appetite to add. I will try to make the AGM I note the goodwill impairment and one has to ask oneself if there will be another made this year. Willbe interesting the read the goodwill footnote of the AR when it is published. Note that the cash flow indicated a spend of £1.5m of acquisition of other intangible assets ie not the 2 acquisitions which I guess is the capitalization of r & d costs. Note that their business is becoming less seasonal Good that the last few months have been more positive on a number of fronts. I continue to feel Lords A's interest a 2 edged sword; this fits in well with other things that he is doing ie Conservative Home and means that it will not suffer from neglect but not much alignment between his interests and mine.

Time they sold everything and reverted to a cash shell and then let someone who knows what they doing get on with it

Given the recent weakness I half assumed that today's announcement by Susqua was a reduction but I see it is an increase from the 13.975m-4.06%-they announced on March 15-itself an increase from 10.295m-3.03% on September 5 last year

Surely the issue is that the last 2 full years had Ebitda of £1.9m each. So 15 months - even allowing for a weak first half - including some of the new acquisitions should surely be better than £0.4m. Should there not have been some warning of this. However you look at it, there should have been a profit above £1.0m ? Or have I missed something ?
