EI it's in the cashflow statement. 64mm operating cashflow 14mm increase in working capital 13mm tax 19mm acquisitions 11mm capex 20mm dividends 3mm treasury shares purchase gives a net debt increase of 19mm (okay I'm missing 3mm in rounding).

Yes aware of that WJ, however net debt was £37 million at the year end on 02/04th. Even allowing for the acquisition spend and final dividend payment, they made over £50 million in the half year - how is net debt now nearly £60 million?.

Can anyone explain the debt level being higher than I would have expected?. Fall in cash conversion a possibility?, and/or some other factor.

Noticed that Ess... Also Debt up 50% approx. However, given the £'s likely future this is still my kind of share - as long as the PER is less than 20. apad

There was one comment about OEM's in the Health Diagnostics sector and some delays, that was the one specific cautious comment.

Solid statement and results, though the tone a little less optimistic than at the AGM imv - not suprising given the economic backdrop. Thought net debt would be a little lower.

I would think a mark up to hook some PI's then an ease back. ADAD, may I ask your main equity holdings?.

Ess.. It's just my name for my own portfolio. Shares that please me by performing get a step up by me buying more. Those that don't stay on the step and can't see the sunny uplands of the next step. Those that fail are kicked down the stairs. The model stops me believing in my own judgement against all evidence. I should add that I don't trade, I expect to own a share for as long as I have owned AZN (free gift from ICI). Also I will buy a cluster of shares in small amounts (less than 0.5% of portfolio each)as a way of concentrating my attention.It's a sort of evolutionary strategy because I am not confident of picking winners. I don't differentiate between value and growth shares. That's about it :-) apad

Ess.. And back to levels seen just over a year ago. I shall not buy prior to the update, which I expect to be fairly mundane. Perhaps looking to reinvest some income mid-morning on the day of the update following a markdown. HLMA is currently 3% of the Stairway to Heaven portfolio. I'd feel comfortable with 5% (AMEC is its main competitor). With any luck there will be more end-of-the-world panic between now and the update. apad

Interesting couple of weeks in prospect here. Interims under two weeks away which will be the first trading update in nearly 4 months. Some chunky director deals on the Sell side three months ago, and a cautious outook from some in the same sector recently. Let's see what HLMA have to say.

Thanks for that, the PER view is similar to the one I posted. 300 pence price target is interesting.

Halma knocked by Citigroup "sell" Wed Oct 26, 2011 11:15am BST Shares in Halma lose 4.6 percent, the second biggest FTSE250 faller, with the index down 0.4 percent, as Citigroup starts coverage of the engineer with a "non-consensual Sell" rating and a target price of 300 pence. Citigroup points out that, despite some recent weakness, Halma's PER (price earnings relative) stands near all-time highs relative to both the MSCI European Capital Goods index and the FTSE All Share. "The stock is not immune to macro headwinds - history suggests that in times of market turmoil the shares can behave in line with more cyclical peers. We believe there is scope for de-rating and some underperformance," the broker adds in a note.

Your paying approx 13x 2012 if forecasts are meet, allowing some possible downward revision then 14x. 14x even for a great company looks rich imo given these markets.
