It may be oversold but if so there will be reasons for this which we are not aware of. 50p may not be the bottom and until the BOD can assure investors that the magins are secure and the cash rolls in then perhaps the market is right by saying "we do not like civil engineering shares".

Seems to me that 50p seems the bottom here, so i expect this to move up from here.

Fulcrum is for life - not just Xmas. Seems very oversold at present probably caused by the EV froth coming off and market volatility. The basic business is sound and justifies a share price 60+. Patience, patience .......

and still the market and me does not like the story - hence the price of 51p. Its all about the cash flow and bedding down the acquisition they made. Sorry I could not be at the AGM otherwise there would have been a lot more technical balance sheet questions. Will be watching this one..........

Thanks - interesting points. Point 2 should result in a 1+1 = 3 scenario at some point. Think the EV charging market will attract a lot of competition though as everyone seems to be heading into this market.

I went to the AGM; the three take away points for me were 1. Palpable confidence by the board in being able to deliver this year's growth. 2. The ability to offer both electrical and gas services is opening big opportunities from developers. This is only just starting to feed through into the business. Have recently adopted their first electrical assets. 3. The tie up with Chargepoint has opened doors into the EV charging market. No revenue from Chargepoint (and in my view probably will not get much - they are relatively small in the UK compared to Europe) but revenue has begun to flow from others (Ecocity and Tescos mentioned). They see EV charging infrastructure as potentially a big market.

Postitive AGM statement. In-line but with upside potential. Regulated assets building nicely.

I can see your point - as I leave for a month away o business - but after I bought a few to come on board the shares started to fall away - a bad PR on director sales and the market becoming risk adverse towards the word "infrastructure". The next thing that is happening is what Labour will do towards energy and the City is horrified......so keep an eye on that topic. Cash Flow is important but until that acquisition is bedded down and one can see that plus at least 6-12 months of figures with the new consolidated balance sheet I not inclined to invest anymore capital. I have said before that I am unable to come to the AGM and I am not hopeful that the FD will stand up and make a statement and I will be surprised if there is any information released to drive the price back up to 75p and behond. I hope that helps.................

anley - ? "how their cash flow operates" What are you getting at - I've only just come back into this share after a few months and I've never considered cash flow a problem here. In fact, they essentially get a free loan from customers having to pay up front - if you have to deal with a utility company on a connection you have to even pay for the quote up front (or a least you did when I was active 5 years ago). Equally I have to say what attracts me to this company is its core business - very profitable and adding to FA infrastructure which produces a very good stable future income stream. Not interested in Chargepoint - its froth - why I sold out last time when the valuation got ridiculous. ( Did they ever announce a deal with Chargepoint - remember looking at the time and didn't find it)

I see that 2 big brokers have: one reduced its stake from 10.9 to 8.6 and the other increased their holding from 4.9 to 5.02................ That is a reason why the share price has been weak and perhaps this is a new base if antone wishes to add.

The questions as to how their cash flow operates MUST be asked at the AGM. As I have mentioned before I am abroad so unable to attend the AGM in Sheffield.

The Dunamis placing was done at 60p and so not really a big deal. Just volatility. Been looking at Nexus Infrastructure as well. That looks a good company, but not bought yet.

Still sitting on the sidelines here. Such a drop is normally not a good sign. I hope for those on board that the market is currently wrong.

Not seeing any reasons for the drop. All looks good. A lot of decent value companies with low share prices at moment on UK indices. I think we're going to see a big influx once the undervalue is noted and macro concerns are lifted.

anley Agreed on smartmeters. No legal obligation to have one, I believe. I am part of a university energy use, monitoring scheme, which has a device attached to the main cable in my meter box. I can check usage on my computer any time I wish. Seldom do, however. Surely we know when we have devices on? I get rewards for being in this university scheme: eg 8 free LED bulbs and cash rewards. Horror future scenario is Energy companies being able to charge higher rates at peak usage times etc. All part of the 'big brother' world where everything we do is monitored. Every electrical device has an energy use rating. Newer ones have lower energy use ratings. Some like CCTV, freezers etc may be on 24:7. Others we can switch off. The future, to thwart the greedy energy providers, is home fuel cells/solar, and even better insullation etc. Make your own decisions on energy saving! Recently concerns have been expressed about switching suppliers and 'smartmeters' not being able to adapt. z

Sorry, not sure I agree with you and I don't think the charging points is the main driver really other than doing work that needs doing. It wasn't easy turning around Fulcrum. National Grid virtually gave the company away and it was loss making. They have done a tremendous job turning the business back into a low cost operator with a strong market position. This has 10-bagged shareholder value from the difficult days post-IPO when the turnaround wasn't working. That took 5 years or so, but has resulted in quite a bit of value as remember that National Grid had invested a lot in the business (which is a barrier to entry for others). In my view they have already done the really difficult bit of internalising the workforce and transforming the profitability and contract performance. They now need to build on the successes made in electricity as well as gas. Not easy, but business never is. They haven't really made any big mistakes so far and I'm confident that they have a good chance!

Ester......if you are pointing your finger at me then fine BUT I do own 3333 shares in this business. I thought ADVFN was a BB where people could exchange views and then draw their own conclusions as to invest or not? In the case of Fulcrum they have a great deal of work to make this a share which will "fly". The easy bit has been done and I wont go in to that BUT now its Stage 2 which is always difficult. Will BP and Shell be better at rolling out charging points and who is going to get their foot in the door with the supermarkets.........take a look at ZAP & GO and ask yourself is this the way to go? I am an indirect investor in that business via Versarien (VRS). Now there is a hint.............. As I have mentioned before I am unable to attend the AGM as I shall be away abroad but in the meantime will continue with research in to a number of possible investments.

The joys of investments is differing views points and speculation. It amazes me on how some people spend so much time and research posting info on a share they don't currently own.

Shareholders need to consider the long term implications on the partnership they have with ChargePoint. Since announcing the partnership in late 2017 not much has happened but it is the costs and subsequent profitability which worries me. Back in the mid 1990's I remember getting involved with raising substantial funds for the digging up of roads to lay fibre for TV and then Broadband. The capital costs were huge and those that were involved and who had SE quotations never did well and were eventually merged. Have we got this senerio all over again? On the Smart Meter front.......I refuse to have one - again I question the BOD thinking in a very troubled market where the consumer is suddenly waking up to the fact that these boxes are rubbish and do not help save energy. Don't buck the market unless your product and service is the best and have the BOD told us that. Still not a buyer............

by Introducing a management incentive scheme which has terms that they will only vest if the share price hits 100p (60%) and 130p (40%) for me is a good indication that my objectives of this investment is aligned with that of the board (increase share price, valuation and growth etc..) with the balance sheet and reports as it is, I can see that this is an achievable objective. Yes I do agree it was a PR disaster but with such a good annual report, balance sheet strength and the fact the company has no debt I feel this outways the sell offs. We don’t know the reason for the sell offs that’s the problem. The only thing that concerns me with this stock is how well the integration is going between fulcrum and Dunamis. Sometimes acquisations can produce a lot of inefficiency so my most immediate concern is understanding that. With the AGM in September hopefully this will shed light on all these points and the sell offs. The problem is we will not know until then which is why market sentiment is understandably low. The key thing for me is that the financials are happy, unless that starts to change I will keep my positive outlook for fulcrum. I’m still researching into the EV market so I cannot give an opinion as of yet. (No financial advice intended)

I’m happy to stay on board. The directors sold a bunch to lock in a massive gain and to presumably derisk their personal finances. Don’t think you can blame them and I’m sure they remain committed to the business. The share price has consolidated above the placing price, which is not unexpected.
