No trades at all yesterday when the SDL Bufettology fund announced had moved up from 16 to 18.6% on Feb. 16th and 23rd (late reporting tut tut). Perhaps that triggered this morning's rush of buyers pushing the price up. It does show how illiquid this one is. I got an offer quote for 72.4 around 10 a.m. but later it was 'negotiated trade only' and just now 83.9 225k traded so far of which only 2k looks like a sell. 12 month average volume 49,518

I have another Agm at 2.30pm same day and then a tour round the new PPH hotel in Waterloo which you might like to join on at 4pm. Can you ask Driver if they would like to present at Mello2018 as it would be good to raise their profile and get them along ?

Thanks BB - interims are due this week (tomorrow?) and will likely be a mixed bag as expected so early into the turnaround but should give a good flavour as to how things are panning out under the new management.

With kind permission from Curry Pasty who set up the original Driver (DRV) thread back in 2005, I have now created a new thread here and encourage anyone interested in DRV to post there from today onwards. http://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=41211833 Many thanks

!FOLLOWFEED With permission from Curry Pasty who created the original Driver Group thread, I have created a new thread in-line with the recent significant changes at Driver (DRV) including new management and more focused business strategy. N+1 Singer are the house broker and forecast revenues of £52m for 2017 rising to £54m by 2019. Equally EPS will rise from 3p for 2017 to 4.1p by 2019 (PE dropping from 15.2 to 11.1) Importantly the balance sheet is much improved after the recent fund raise and is forecast to move into a net cash position of £2.7m by 2019. For anyone not familiar with the business the following link (presentation by Mark Wheeler) gives a good overview of the company: hxxp://webcasting.brrmedia.co.uk/broadcast/5919d52d2fea63527a1ed6c2 Driver Group's competitors include the likes of Hill International, Mace, Sweett (now Currie & Brown) and EC Harris (amongst others); each of these business having an international reputation in the construction industry and having their own claims, disputes and arbitration expertise. As investors in this sector will already know there has been a huge amount of M&A with companies such as Hyder, Confluence, Scott Wilson, Parsons Brinkerhoff, James R Knowles, Davis Langdon, URS, Mouchel, Parkman, BDP, Sweett Group, Atkins and most recently Waterman all acquired. Project Management and specialist consultants such as Driver are a particular attraction given their relatively higher margins compared to more conventional 'design' consultants and/or those who operate on a high volume / low margin basis. I would specifically expect one of the large international consultants such as WSP, who are looking to increase headcount by 8000 staff over the next 18 months, to be interested in such an acquisition given they previously lost out to Currie & Brown in their bid for Sweett Group. Equally, the opportunity for a turnaround is interesting. For a significant number of years DRV had a an operating margin of around 8-10% and generated ROCE of 20%+. With the boardroom shuffle and renewed strategic focus (specifically an emphasis of sticking to what they are good at / high margin work) there is no reason to believe that similar margins are not attainable going forward resulting in EPS of circa 8- 10p over the next 5 years. With the dividend reinstated as they generate cash this will add a further attraction. Ruffer have an eye for a bargain and picked up 6% of the stock in the recent placing. They were also large holders of Waterman. After watching the company for many years they now appear to finally have their ship in order and I have invested on the basis of a successful turnaround and/or M&A and see a potential re-rating up to £35m mcap over the next 2-3 years. As per Waterman, this is one for those with patient money.

After some thumb sucking I am pleased to confirm that I have finally add DRV to my portfolio after the recent placing and broker notes. Looking at earnings capability, peer group comparison, the refreshed balance sheet, change in strategy to higher margin / niche business and new management I can foresee a valuation more like GBP 35m (70p) although it wont happen overnight. Worth watching this to get a good overview of their business: hxxp://webcasting.brrmedia.co.uk/broadcast/5919d52d2fea63527a1ed6c2 Good luck all.

Yes I took a few a while back but will wait for further updates before buying again though today's update is a step in the right direction. Debt down to 3.5 mm so how long until we are debt free.
