I couldn't spot the divi payment date in the results - does anyone know when this is, or if there'll be a separate rns?

Happy enough with the prelims here Whether this turns out to be a consolidate and do it a bit better or whether FIF finds a way to lead the overdue and necessary industry consolidation is the big question now

Results very solid. I'm a little disappointed with the EPS 6.5 figure; however we still remain on a very undemanding PER. Amazing that in 5 years they've managed to reduce the debt:EBITDA ration from 5 to 1! Looks likely to consolidate around the 70p level for now unless perhaps we attract more institutional investment on the basis of the divi and future prospects.

EPS looks amazingly close to what someone (moi) calculated X months ago !! ---- Congrats. that FIFs extremely patient shareholders are going to get a divi... you deserve it for waiting X years ! ---- shareholders that paid 90p for the new shares in Lightbody acquisition....probably still not very happy though !!

A healthy pull back today as nothing new in the results. Still looks well set for the future though with a 6.4p EPS forecast in the current year. I would have liked a more positive outlook and dividend comment, but they are playing it canny imo and trying not to over promise on forward outlook. This recovery has been a long time coming and they seem to have a sensible plan. It's probably worth 90-100p if it was acquired in my view, so happy with the momentum in the business for now.

wouldn't disagree with that at all. If the chart moves against me though i may move to sell the remainder it depends how it looks after the results have been analysed and the share price settles down this week On the other hand if we see it fall below 60p i'll consider adding. I guess i'm a bit in two minds at present hence the sales this morning. Woody

Yep it's been a great run so probably a sensible decision, it's looking like M&A is the catalyst now.

I took some profit this morning b2, i think there's still some headroom but not like the moves we saw from 22pish so i decided to reduce my holding a bit. It's always been a bit top heavy in my portfolio so it's now at a more sensible level. I sold in a few tranches, though they're not showing on the trades data. The continued expansion etc does show some ambition and the management team are sound so i think we're still in good hands. Woody

There pretty reasonable, my only two comments after a headline review would be the share options are clearly significant but we new that and i guess they should be rewarded for turning the business around and the reduction in debt should pave the way for lower interest payments which will compensate a little for the dilution of the share options. Need to spend a little more time looking through the detail. Woody

Not long until we find out - modest volumes continue leaning currently in favour of buys.

my guess is we'll see good results with some pull back in share price after the rise. It really all depends now on the progressiveness of the dividend policy and the outlook statement but i expect a small correction. Woody

roll-on next Monday - expecting good things. I suspect that today's profit-takers will look back with regret.

Given that the upcoming EPS is likely to be C10p yielding a PER 8 it's hard to see why the long overdue price correction shouldn't continue - this well run business is in rude health and continuing on a virtuous path of debt reduction, which allows a rise in EPS even if business growth is restricted in these tough economic times. The tricky challenge is how to create healthy organic growth and to introduce a maintainable dividend that will strengthen the attraction to longer term Institutional investors. The more of those investors on board, the greater will be the PER and share price
