FinnCap; The group has announced an encouraging H1 update, with trading on track to achieve existing FY expectations, showing good sales growth. The acquisition of OCL is complementary, boosting the Process division. We are raising our forecast EPS by 3.3% in FY17 and 6.8% in FY18, also raising our PT from 170p to 182p, based on a 2018 P/E of 13x, which provides significant share price upside. The group is powering on and we see today’s announcements as being positive. Management continues to convert the cash from its fund raise into accretive earnings streams.

Quite powerful. Hope it stabilises price and sends it up. """" The Flowtechnology division has increased its revenues by 6.8%. As well as the acquisition of Indequip in February 2016, this improvement has been powered by strong organic growth within the core business, set against market conditions that remain generally challenging.

So far so good. If you listen to management they are saying all the right things... but of course DYOR...

If you're thinking of investing in FLO, one of the key test is whether you believe in management ability to acquire sensibly and integrate smoothly. That is their core strategy for the next few years to increase shareholder value.

FinnCap; Last week the group acquired Hi-Power, a complementary bolt on acquisition, for a total consideration of up to a maximum £3.5m. Hi-Power offers additional hydraulic products, wider geographic coverage and medium-term synergies and wider collaboration opportunities. This acquisition is in line with existing strategy and we expect management to achieve further acquisitions over the coming year as it deploys cash raised through its recent placing. This potentially offers future upside to forecasts. We increase our EPS forecasts by 2.4% in 2017 and 4.7% in 2018. The shares remain attractively rated on a P/E of 10x and offer good upside.

Good original business. Can't help thinking that the acquisition spending spree will end in the loss of shareholder value as it normally does though. Aren't the acquired businesses inferior to the original business?

PJ1 - as you say eps growth of around 3% is forecast for 2018. This may be because the company relies on acquisitions for growth and it may be later this year before those in the pipeline that may boost next year's earnings are announced. Until then the forecasters assume a modest organic growth. Graham N has some comments about this strategy here: htTp://www.stockopedia.com/content/small-cap-value-report-23-jan-2017-flo-sthr-ppb-phtm-bms-mysl-168181/ I have a small holding as part of an income portfolio as I consider the yield to be safe and well covered. One of the (few) fund managers I have respect for is Gervais Williams and his Miton funds are the largest holder with 13.53%.

This is primarily an acquisition play, but organic growth is still key. Negative growth is poor and undermines the acquisition rationale, but low single digit positive growth is good.

Is this BB still 'live'? Having a good look here following their recent Presentation in Manchester. Any comments regarding the low 3% forecast growth into 2018? (via Stockopedia) Cheers PJ

I am grateful to ST. I was getting overweight after recent good results and share price, so have taken the opportunity to scale back my holding - but only to a normal weighting, as I still rate this company as having great future prospects...

Petewy I tend to lean as much to the TA as to the FA when I'm analysisng stocks so it would depend how the chart reacted over the coming months as to where i thought a good entry point might be. Edmund the other issue for me is it appears to operate to some extent as an engineering jobbing shop so recurring revenue isn't so easy to predict despite the fact they may have a very dependable client base so it could be a very cyclical business. Something to think about if we enter a general economic downturn. woody

Decent pullback is how much?

Woodcutter I think the basic analysis is spot on. You have obviously also got some experience of consolidation businesses, and four of the risks are that the organic growth gets sidelined, the balance sheet gets forgotten, that the management does not give itself time to bed in acquisitions, or management overpays. I see some organic growth continuing, of course whether that is the new management or the old, or the general economy, is as yet unclear: early days. The balance sheet was looked after OK in the recent oversubscribed placing. I don't get the feeling that we have overpaid up to now. So yes, the bedding in is important. I can think of a couple of consolidation businesses of comparable size that failed, and a couple that have done very well (off the top of my head). At the moment the jury is still not unanimous on this one, but the potential for stripping out duplicated costs is obviously high, and the service to customers seems to be a core value which is also good to see. So far so good, and on a decent pullback I would add to my solid holding here.
