cerrito: I do not see myself making the AGM, especially if there are rail strikes. I have gone through the AR. My first reaction was its length 112 pages which seems OTT for such a small company and must be a barrier for small companies to list. I could not find on their websites their previous AR’s so no idea if they were bigger or smaller. The following caught my eye Page 12 I thought Lucy Sharp’s report read well. Page 25 I saw the useful increase YOY in gross profit from the Assurance and decline in MDR but could find no good explanation of what drove these or indeed what business is in the assurance division and what in the ECR division. Page 27 Be interesting to see if their EBITDA performance was good enough in H1 so they can increase their loan facility and begs the question as to why they need the funds. Page 29 Note two risks have increased-economic conditions and hiring- the rest are no change and no risks have decreased. Page 39 I see that the Chairman spends at least two working days a month on ECSC which I thought should be sufficient, even though he doubles up as Company Secretary. I see on page 42 that both he and Gooch attended all board meetings. Page 43 A very stable shareholder base and indeed the last change of holdings RNS we had was way back in May 2020 after the latest equity issue. One concern I have had and continue to have is what would happen if either Unicorn or Ravinder Bahra wanted to exit. Fingers crossed that both remain if not happy at least satisfied and have no pressing need for cash. As an aside I have just been on the LSE website and seen since close of business on May 25 there have just been 4 transactions with a combined value of £12k in these 6 trading days…granted we did have the jubilee break but even so. Page 46 I see that directors ‘remuneration as a whole fell from £829k to £731k, as one very highly paid director left, in the context that group expenses on employee benefits went up from £4.7m to £5.3m. The increase in expenditure at a group basis understandable given industry trends and no doubt there will be a big increase in 2022. This means that in 2021 directors’ remuneration was 14% of total-a bit high perhaps and certainly better than the 2020 figure of 18%. Note that as per page 87 total average number of employees was 87. Given that in the IMC and other shareholder meetings Ian Mann gives the impression that ECSC is a one man band, I was pleasantly surprised that the differential between his and Lucy Sharp’s remuneration was as low as it was in 2021 and indeed in 2020 they had virtually identical remuneration. Page 47 Let’s hope for all our sakes that the share options of the directors are in the money. Page 80 Probably good that no single client accounts for more than 10% of the revenue. Page 82 I note the reduction in contract liabilities. Given that it was inferred that the amount of 3 year contract work was increasing, this seems counter intuitive. Any views anyone Page 86 Sobering but realistic that no deferred tax asset created quote because the Board envisages that a significant period of time will be required to generate sufficient profits to utilise the trading losses carried forward unquote…the trading losses being £5.4m Page 89 Concerned that so few additions to the computer equipment. Anyone understand how the net book value of computer equipment has gone up from £68k to £658 k during 2021??? Page 97 Not only are the terms of the loan facility very onerous but we learn that there was a 1% fee payable. Page 106 Interesting no share options were granted in 2021. Conclusion Not one of my better decisions to buy ECSC and well done to those who exited at the start of the year. I am suffering the consequences with the share price at current levels. Not sure what will provoke an uptick. Cannot see who would buy them. Any trading improvement will be a hard slog and the loan facility shows their lack of financial flexibility. I note that Allenby are currently forecasting a PBT loss this year 2022 of £308k up from last year’s loss of £277k. My last purchase was in July 2020.While not a Yorkshireman, I will show Yorkshire stubbornness and hang on with the marcap at £9m.

bdbd11: Today's presentation is worthwhile watching if you missed it. While not setting the world alight, the business appears solid with an excellent reputation. Downside risk appears to be limited. Yes, they could and perhaps should be growing faster but they are at least steadily getting there. In terms of the an investment case, the current valuation of under 1 year's turnover seem's ridiculously cheap. Therefore imo a share price of circa £1.50 is entirely possible without them doing much more than they are doing already.

jane deer: ECSC needs to start showing it can generate free cash flow. The current environment (despite the cost pressures) should be pretty conducive for the business. I don't think a significant equity raise is that feasible given the shareholder base. Around £700k of the negative cash flow in FY2021 is the unwind from the Covid support - so underlying cash outflow is not so bad. But still in FY22 ECSC will need to find another £290k to finance the new loan interest plus repayments.

thirty fifty twenty: thanks Cerrito. i have still have no responses, despite chasing. for me, from this i infer that they lack an attention to detail - how can their IR email account not be monitored?? i've watched the presentations and whilst they talk much about the opportunities in cybersecurity, they dont seem keen to answer my specific questions about some of the figures in their accounts and notes. this share and mgt has too much risk for me despite the attraction of the sector. all IMHO, DYOR + BoL I will be selling out next week

fillipe: A nice share to have, but difficult to "turn a shilling" on it with that spread. The company must like it that way ... f

cerrito: Read the RNS closely, read the Allenby report which I thought was good and listened to the IMC presentation, where as always Ian was v professional. Good that he got Lucy and Gemma involved as one of my concerns is that this is rather a one man band. It seems a matter of slow steady progress but cannot see a catalyst for a resting of the shares. Seems to me a question of two steps forward one step back with the share price. No plan to buy or sell and plan to go back to sleep on this. If there is a face to face AGM in London would hope to make it but see no need to go up to Bradford.
