An interesting presentation. Without wishing to denigrate, management came across as solid, rather than inspirational (although the CEO did not take part). Their approach to turnaround has been more evolutionary - do things better, rather than revolutionary - do things differently. There is clearly a lot more scope for improvement, particularly on the freight side, and I was left feeling comfortable with their ability to deliver these improvements over the course of next few years.

And that's another 200,000 bought by directors. I must admit I don't think I've ever seen such concerted buying by directors in a company before.

Whilst I take your point about the narrative I'd rather they disclosed more information than less. I'm quite capable of analysing and interpreting the numbers myself so don't take much notice of the commentary (apart from outlook). At the end of the day it's the underlying performance of the business which is important...

SteMIS - I don't doubt that P/E ratio is not going to apply for a long time - but its a measure that shows how far this has to go. Not really, you have to look behind the numbers. The business comprises two divisions;- Express - has been declining in profitability but indications are that this has slowed and if they can stabilise and reverse the trend even a bit then, on an ebitda of £25m (currently £23.3m) it should be worth 5 x ebida = £125m. Freight - historically loss making, it has gone from ebitda loss of £14.2m to ebitda loss of £1.2m in 2 years. Indications are that it is now profitable. If they can get it to £10m profit in 2 years then should be worth 6 x ebita = £60m. That's £185m or 32p a share. I think those are pretty conservative valuations for strategic assets in the industry. An industry buyer would have synergies from combining the businesses.

So looking at the Balance Sheet .........................2020 vs 2019 Current assets 45.9 vs 45 Current liabilities 73.5 vs 59.4 Working capital -27.6 vs -14.4 "Working capital increased significantly by GBP13.3 million in the year," What ? !

SteMIS - I don't doubt that P/E ratio is not going to apply for a long time - but its a measure that shows how far this has to go. They are supposed to be a recovery play - I get that - but they have been one for years and maybe they do not recover a whole lot more from here. Their overheads are up. They are over-egging the progress and I hate seeing the spin. Its the spin in the numbers - you expect it from the sales team etc but the numbers are too easy to interrogate - if you can be bothered. They are not alone - the whole market is littered with spin and adjusted this , exceptional that. I think the market is getting worse. They keep adding more accounting rules and in response companies keep piling in additional adjusted figures , spin, or just plain pages of this and that to bury the actual accounts with.

"Working capital increased significantly by GBP13.3 million in the year, mostly because of the deferred payments referred to above." Sorry ? Working capital increased because they owe more money in deferred payments? WTF? So that deferral has added to cash - tick - current assets But it must also be in current liabilities - you still owe it and its not a long term liability Who writes this stuff ?

This a recovery play which will turn into a takeover play. It's not a value play, so just applying a P/E to current earnings isn't going to tell you a lot.

I scanned down to the stat results bit and thought I might be able to judge the business by this line "Underlying operating profit was GBP2.2 million (2019: GBP0.2 million)" after all that is what the "underlying" term is supposed to be used for. But then the P&L says Underlying profit 2.2m Less - amortisation -0.3 can't escape that Less - share based payments -1.2 Wtf if you paid cash that would be in already ! Less - Finance costs -0.4 Doh ! of course Profit before tax £0.3m ! wow... happy days But ... Tax £-0.5m So actually a Loss of £0.2m Market cap £110m so a P/E ratio of -550...

More of the same spin ... "Operating cash flow was very strong at GBP16.9 million (2019: GBP3.2 million) " Wow ! Fantastic ! well done .... but at least they did not hide the next bit "supported by GBP10.4 million of agreed payment deferrals (mainly VAT)" Oh! If payments had been deferred at the year end of an ordinary year - there would be questions as to whether this was just window dressing the balance sheet. Its not a normal year - but bragging about £13.7m improvement when at least £10.4m is just deferred is more BS. Its the f'king spin I hate - not just here but any set of accounts. To accept the headlines is just being led like a sheep - but who can be bothered to read past just the headlines ?

I have not gone through the results properly yet - But I hate seeing headlines based upon "Adjusted Anything " as it all to often these days is just BS. so DX Freight ..... EBITDA loss for the year was reduced by 85% to GBP1.2 million (2019: loss of GBP7.8 million). This substantial advancement was mainly driven by the expansion and improvements in productivity of our 1-Man service, and the division achieved EBITDA profitability of GBP0.7 million So trumpeting the EBITDA - what an achievement........ BUT "TRANSITION TO IFRS 16 'LEASES' "The impact on the income statement has meant that EBITDA has significantly increased. " "The depreciation charge has also increased significantly along with additional amounts being charged to interest." So again I have not read everything but on glancing those to bits of info stood out It seems its just spin ! BS EBITDA based upon IFRS16 FFS !

They look very good compared to 2018 and wonderful compared to 2017. It's not so much where they are now that is excellent, it is the direction and speed of travel.
