I have now updated the GATC page of my web site, following the results. The full year charts now go back to 2008 to give a better idea of performance during good times and bad. Most of the data comes from Sharepad, whose adjusted profit and eps are frequently lower than those provided by reporting companies. This is true in the case of GATC. I really must get round to asking them what formulae they use. Http://www.david-wilmshurst.co.uk/gatc/gatc_data.htm

Since name change from Matchtech to Gattaca the share price has plummeted from 390p to 330p. The performance of Gattaca is pretty dismal. A few years ago when the Company was still called MatchTech, the share price was circa 550p. Given the roaring employment market, there is no real excuse why this share has back-tracked so badly and performed so appallingly. Something needs to change - because the current strategy and management have presided over a 40% destruction of shareholder value and market cap. PBT was DOWN a massive 24% yesterday and that is an testament to just how poorly the Company is performing. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Actually Equity Development forecast was adjusted EPS of 33.9p. Actual adjusted diluted was 34.3p. Forecast net debt was £41m, actual was £40.3m. I think that entitles them to claim that results were in line with market expectations. You might consider amortisation of consolidated goodwill as a 'cost' but many don't really. I'm surprised they don't add back the share based payment charge as well which would add another 2.4p to underlying EPS. Although net debt is up £15.3m, £11.2m is due to acquisitions. On top of that you have a £5.0m adverse swing in working capital as discussed in the accounts.

Despite management, stating profit is in-line with market expectation. Basic EPS of 23.4p is close to their 2011’s earnings trough of 20p. Those who use underlying EPS of 35.3p excludes amortisation and acquisition costs which are real costs. Overall, Gattaca divisions show some serious declines in Net Fee Income, with their biggest division (UK Engineering) falling by 6%. The acquisition of Resourcing Solutions Limited has saved Gattaca of an overall decline in NFI. You can blame management for their poor choice in acquiring Network International in 2015 for £58m, despite struggling to make a profit. We now know it didn’t help to boost profit at all. An interesting observation is to compare the UK unemployment rate to Gattaca EPS. Normally, Gattaca sees EPS rise when the UK unemployment was falling, this happened during 2011-15. This is normal because businesses are hiring more people to fill positions. Given that the UK unemployment is at 40-year lows and Gattaca has already fallen to the five-year low, does this mean Gattaca EPS will decline further if unemployment starts to rise?

Isn't this what they used to call a 'square'? P/E = 8.3 and yield = 8.2%

The increase in debt in H2 is almost all due to the acquisition of RSL (£11.5m out of £13m increase). Equity Development EPS forecast is 33.9p not 20p!

Not sure where you get that from ganthorpe, statement says broadly in line. Forecasts are for 34.66p so a touch below that. I do not have a position.

Looks like the full year earnings will be no more than 20P per share , which will not cover a final dividend of 17P as last year plus the 6P interim. With the increased borrowing I feel that the final divi may have to be cut back at least to 14P to match the earnings. I think they are whistling in the wind to talk about 2X cover for the dividend - that's going to need doubled earnings or halved dividend. GAN - no position , just a quick look after seeing Equity Denelopment write up

A dividend yield of 7.5% is normally a red warning flag in my experience. Frequently such high yields are unsustainable - especially perhaps in the case of 1)falling earnings combined with 2)increasing debt combined with 3)a worrisome outlook about static (or even falling) customer demand. Good Luck All - but carry a shamrock and a brolly. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

By which I assume they have left 2017 the same. According to Sharepad their forecasts for 2017 & 2018 PBT were £16.7 and £20.2, which now becomes £18.2.

Equity Development issued a research note where they have trimmed 2018 PBT forecasts by 10%.

As far as one can tell from net fee income figures results will be no worse than current forecasts, with improvement during the year. In which case, dividend will be maintained and covered 1.5x. It will be interesting to see how brokers react to the trading update, particularly with regard to forecasts for the current year.

Wow. Worrying and poor figures: "... continuing political uncertainty and its impact on business confidence is unlikely to lead to an increase in customer demand and candidate availability in the near and medium term." This isn't good. In the Near AND MEDIUM-TERM. H1 2017 performace figures all negative at -4%, -8%, -5%. Big increase in debt. In my opinion, this is not a good place to be. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Nice small write-up in IC that I've only just caught up with - nothing new and nothing not said above, though the "yield 8%, p/e 10" was hard to miss.
