Price holding steady despite the volumes. I think we're seeing a clear out of a big overhang?

Don't know if you have ever seen a picture of an Anaconda after eating a deer. That's basically what's happenning here. In the mid-term I have great confidence in the Chairman'a ability to steer the strategy in the right direction, having seen him in action in the past...but for now I think Flo needs a period of consolidation to digest its recent binge-eating.

Interesting take topvest. I share your wariness of too many acquisitions. I have seen empire-building and over-optimism destroy balance sheets and earnings per share quite a few times in the past. But consolidators can make for very good investments when the industry is ripe for it and when the management has good self-discipline, organisational ability and tact (so proper pricing and effective integration). So far I feel Flo has been doing an OK job; there have been a lot of deals, but some of the businesses acquired are quite small and assimilation should not be too difficult.

I think the original core business was excellent. Very long history of excellent profitability when I looked. Too many acquisitions for my liking and diluting the main core business, with too much risk. I will give it a miss.

Paul Scott pretty upbeat about todays results - "Overall though, I think the PER of only 10.9 seems excellent value. It seems a genuinely profitable & cash generative group of niche businesses. So it gets a thumbs up from me.".

For me this is a successful growth story, it's got to be worth a forward PER of over 12 - so for me £2 should be a minimum fair price. Management have not tripped up yet...

Looks like a bit of overhang at 175p with a seller able to mop up demand this afternoon. Hopefully this overhang clears and we get the leg up to 180p.

Flowtech Fluidpower PLC had its stock rating noted as ‘Reiterates217; with the recommendation being set at ‘CORPORATER17; today by analysts at finnCap. finnCap have set their target price at 215 GBX on its stock. This indicates the analyst now believes there is a potential upside of 22.2% from the opening price of 176 GBX.

Perhaps we are a bit under the radar because the headline numbers (and the numbers investors might look for in "screens") are always out of date in this rapidly developing business.

Yes, there is no underlying EPS figure given. But anyway, given 8(?) acquisitions over the last year and a quarter, we need to mess around with the numbers to get a proper notion of continuing underlying EPS. But it is not too hard to work out 2017 underlying by multiplying basic EPS (of 9.69p) by 9.08 and dividing by 6.61 which are the underlying and basic op profit. Then assuming no seasonality (big assumption, but I cannot see how this can be estimated), and assuming margins flat, Q1 2018 multiplying crudely by 4) extrapolates to 106m turnover whereas 2017 was 78.3. Then adjusting for shares in issue versus average shares over the year for EPS means * by 50.4 and divide by 53.1. (ignoring a small benefit of 2 weeks of Balu earnings, and a tiny adjustment due to the Jan 2018 acquisition). I make that an April 1st "rolling" underlying EPS pre the Balu acquisition of around 17p. Then the Balu acquisition can be expected to be a positive (though not immediately earnings accretive - given the dilution versus the extra earnings, the acquisiton seems fairly flat from an earnings per share accretion point of view). Plus I cannot quite imagine zero accretive acquisitions for the remaining 9 months, nor some benefits from synergies and the recent price uplift. On the basis of all that, I think Flotech Fluidpower is pretty good value! :-)

Well spotted Bonkoh. For me the results cement the price at 175p going up.

Buried in the annual statement is about £2m of administration expenses, relating to acquisitions, which is probably not recurring this year. I make that about 15-20% enhancement to net profit for FY2018.

"In Line" & looking pretty good. Rev's +46% & underlying Op Profit +21.9%, Acqu's bedding in nicely. Q1 started well. "the Group is now entering an exciting stage of development as its ambitions for growth increasingly improve its market share". Happy to hold.

Hallen get is that acquisition is not going to be EPS enhancing this year.If mgmt believe they can extract synergies and cross sell organic growth in FY2019, the brokers covering FLO don't seem convinced.

Probably have a glass ceiling at 170p for some time. For the present, it would just be nice to test it!

Placing was recently easily completed at 170p, so Flotech comfortably under that price now and rather cheap.

Has the current share price factored in the new placing. I've been looking at FLO for some time and would value any opinions from LTHs as I'm considering putting some into ,y SIPP. TIA
