I will endeavour to write up some notes on the meeting in the next few days (unless Cerrito beats me to it), meanwhile it is worth mentioning a few of of the personal cyber-security hints and tips that came out towards the end of the second meeting: * Have two separate computers, one for bank accounts and financial transactions and one for emails, web browsing and personal stuff. * Consider using telephone banking rather than internet banking (Ian Mann, CEO, only uses telephone banking) * Make sure you keep up to date with security updates * Most personal computers are fairly vulnerable to Hackers, consumer software such as Norton or Avast, do not offer protection for the majority of malware. They perhaps cover 5 – 10% * Using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) will not increase protection against malware, VPNs are there to conceal the whereabouts and identities of individuals, many of whom will use the VPNs to conduct illegitimate activities, such as downloading pirated copies of newly released films. Do you really want your data being handled by providers who help facilitate such activities? * Connecting through an unsecured internet connection such as The Cloud will increase risk to a small degree, but the increased risk will be small compared to using a poorly protected computer vs a secure computer with all the updated security patches. * If you lose money in an online bank transaction, you may have been hacked many weeks before the incident. Hackers will frequently lie in wait until they see a big balance.

That was a very informative AGM today and an equally informative post AGM shareholder workshop "Understanding Cyber Security" which lasted for about one hour. After I had read this morning's RNS, I was slightly concerned that they may want to raise a bit more cash, as the current cash levels (£350K) seemed somewhat lower than one might expect at this stage in the year, assuming the last Allenby broker note (March 2019) was to be believed (see link below) Allenby Research Reports on ECSC When I put this point to the BOD, we were told that there were no current plans to raise further funds from shareholders and furthermore there was a new Allenby forecast published today (we were given a copy). Allenby are now forecasting cash for the end of the year to be around £552K (without having to resort to another fund raise). The Allenby analyst was at the meeting and he confirmed that he was happy with the new forecast. We were also told that the new Barclays facility was set up as a contingency and they did not anticipate using it. The interest rate payable under the facility was described as de minimis and it cost around £9K to set up.

ECSC surges as three contract wins underpin revenue expectations for 2019 https://twitter.com/smallcappick/status/1118058350359515136

Good news yes; but to put it in perspective these three wins equal as I read it £140k approx pa for the next three years in a division that had revenues last year of £1.7m. Let's hope these big companies are good at paying their suppliers.

ECSC Group PLC investor presentation, at ShareSoc March 13.3.19 by Ian Mann, CEO This is a really great presentation by Ian. Interesting company in a hot space. Https://www.piworld.co.uk/2019/03/19/ecsc-group-plc-ecsc-investor-presentation-at-sharesoc-march-13-3-19-by-ian-mann-ceo/

A delayed take of the Prelims and of the sharesoc meeting presentation made by Ian Mann. Good that ECSC are on the front foot in making presentations such as this and Mello and the AGM will be in London so accessible to more investors than Bradford..though for me there is a value on going to the site to get a better feel of the energy of the company. No real surprise that the shares have not moved since the results-till yesterday- as they mirror Allenby forecasts made in January. The headline figures are good but I was hoping for more progress between H1 and H2. H1 revenue was £2.6 m and H2 £2.8m- with a decline in consultancy revenue. I did learn that consultancy tends to be slow in August and around Christmas ie there is some seasonality. That said in 2017 consultancy was much stronger in H2 than H1. PBT was the same in H1 and H2. That said operating cash flow was much stronger in H2 , COGS lower and as per below, we were told that EBITDA improved as the year went on. Cash position Said with perhaps too much emphasis that very comfortable with their cash position. Said that cash generation will follow EBITDA. Consultancy needs working capital but managed services do not. They do not have overdraft facilities with Barclays on the basis that do not need them and if in a tight spot could discount invoices. I did not have the chance to ask if they are held back in their r&d because of cash. A small point but the decline in Finance Income y-o-y from £6k to £1k when interest rates have gone up suggests that average daily cash balances have declined more than what balance sheet figures show. See Allenby cash forecasts below. Personnel Was clear that getting and retaining good consultants is key and that as both he and his COO are ex consultants they know how to give them TLC. Interesting that the reason they have their Brisbane operation is that very difficult to get consultants to work nights. Claimed they had a 90 pc retention rate but did not say how defined. Other points While GDPR boosted last year revenue, it is not a one off boost as Boards will continue to focus on this especially when the Information Commissioner starts fining people. Reminded us that generally speaking enter into a new corporate relationship via a consultancy and the hope to progress to Managed Service Contracts. A consultancy contract would be £5/15k pa and a Managed Services contract £100/£400k over up to a four year period. Profitability Said that the EBITDA loss last year was £300k in Q1 and then £200k,£100k and break even in the subsequent three quarters. Also referred us to the forecasts of Allenby, who produced new ones on March 13. That said, these March 13 forecasts were virtually the same as their previous January 22 2019 forecast. They have an adjusted EBITDA profit of £241k this year and £1020k next year with net cash being £1016K and £1669k respectively. Whither the SP Given the general thinness of the market, difficult to forecast. As an example yesterday fell 9p with just a sell of 5k shares and a purchase of 9082 shares. Last Comment Ian Mann did make references to the board upheavals mid 2018 which seem to be behind us and hopefully this will be confirmed at the AGM.

They have 650k left as at 31/12/2018 _ _________________________________________ Cash Flow The cash balance at the start of the year was GBP1.6m. During the year, the cash balance has fallen due to the EBITDA loss (GBP0.87m), capital expenditure (GBP0.15m), and development costs (GBP0.18m). During the year, the Group received a refund of GBP0.12m from HMRC in respect of a surrender of R&D Tax Credits from earlier periods. The cash balance at 31 December 2018 was GBP0.65m. The closing cash balance is as budgeted, and together with more active management of the Company's debtors, provides a solid base for the Company's growth plans for the year ahead. Balance Sheet The Group's Balance Sheet as at 31 December 2018 had Net Assets of GBP1.04m (2017: GBP2.17m). Retained Earnings and Distributable Reserves as at 31 December 2018 were a cumulative loss of GBP4.91m (2017: cumulative loss of GBP3.68m). Going Concern The Directors have assessed the going concern status of the Group by reference to a number of factors. In particular, the Directors have considered the strong rate of growth in the cyber security market; the fact that business continues to attract new clients and is not overly dependent on any single client; the fact that the business continues to retain key staff following the restructuring, the fact that the business has no Corporation Tax liability to HMRC and that the Group has only modest financing facilities which are not subject to financial covenants. Moreover, having reduced the monthly operating losses significantly by way of the cost restructure, the rate of cash burn has also been significantly reduced. In undertaking their review, the Directors have prepared financial projections for the years ending 31 December 2019 and 2020, a review which assumed continued revenue growth and cost efficiency. In the event that this revenue and cost performance is not achieved, the Directors have also considered a sensitivity analysis based on lower revenue growth and have formulated contingency plans for this scenario, which enable the Group to preserve its financial resources. As such, the Directors have concluded that the cash balance at 31 December 2018 is sufficient to fund the ongoing growth and development of the Group and to meet its liabilities as they fall due for at least the next 12 months from the date of approval of the financial statements.

Hamida yes I suppose that’s why they presented to investors at the Sharesociety event last night, because they hate speaking to investors lol you plum. And you clearly haven’t checked their cash position either because a cash call is absolutely NOT needed. How to get it so wrong - by hamida.
