Good question - the Chairman is stepping down at the AGM but my understanding and having listened to the CE & FD interview today they seem to convey a very positive outlook. An interesting slide pack also - ow.ly/lZxZo

34th year of over 5% increase in dividend - that is very impressive but can it continue?

Solid enough. I especially liked the bit about cash flow - one of the things I've always liked about this management.

I thought i got my timing perfect with PRV as brought recently the day before it announced its contract award, only to give most of it back after its statement which seemed to worry some,can see it reaching 200 though fairly short term and will be interesting to see if there is any resistance at that point. ELM and IDOX have been my favourites for the last couple of years, but have taken profit in ELM and stuck it in LRL for my sins, i have always said i would never go near gas/oil as well outside my comfort zone but finally could not resist the excitement. As for HLMA,as long as the structure they have stay in place then all acquisitions should be justifable and profitable can't see them ever rcketing in quite the same way as JDG but it still always looks undervalued!! I have 7.5% of my portfolio in it now so i hope it is!

Ta buster. I'd like to have done it earlier but didn't have funds. Sold VOD after the statement and moved the monies into HLMA. Have bought on 5 occasions over the years. Now 4.7% of portfolio, 5% is a limit I like. I particularly approve of the management's philosophy with acquisitions (don't call us, we'll call you), it makes an interesting comparison with the JDG rocketship (give us a call). I also like the engineering background of the CEO - means he really does understand the business, rather than seeing it through balance sheet spectacles. The 5 year graph gives extraordinary confidence in their business model, when combined with a 2% yield I found it something of a siren call. PRV is next on the Stairway to Heaven portfolio and ITRK is too expensive, as usual:-) What's your favourite for increasing? apad

GL Apad I topped up back in August,probably for a final time, will wait to find out more about the acquisiations before deciding though. Such a good strong company cant really see anything negative in the fundamentals.

Halma, the leading safety, health and environmental technology group announces the completion on 23 January 2013 of the acquisition of Thinketron Precision Equipment Company Limited ('TPE') based in Hong Kong and its subsidiaries Baoding Longer Precision Pump Co., Ltd ('Longer Pump') based in China and Langer Instruments Corporation ('LIC') based in the USA. Longer Pump manufactures and markets peristaltic, syringe and gear pumps used in laboratory, medical and industrial applications. LIC is Longer Pump's distributor in the USA. The initial cash consideration was RMB 237 million (GBP23.7 million) for the share capital of TPE. Deferred consideration of RMB 3 million (GBP0.3 million), which is adjustable RMB for RMB if the net tangible asset value (NTAV) is over/under a targeted amount, is payable upon agreement of the NTAV. The targeted NTAV includes approximately RMB 22.5 million (GBP2.25 million) of cash. Unaudited accounts for the year ended 31 December 2012 show adjusted operating profit of RMB 23.5 million (GBP2.35 million). Audited accounts for the year ended 31 December 2011 show adjusted operating profit of RMB 18.2 million (GBP1.82 million). Existing management of Longer Pump and LIC will remain in place and will continue to operate the business supported by new Board members appointed from within Halma China. The acquisition, which is expected to be immediately earnings enhancing, has been funded from Halma's cash and debt facilities. Longer Pump will join Halma's Health & Analysis sector within the Fluid Technology sub-sector adding complementary high-value fluid handling products which are sold through a large sales network in China. Approximately 80% of Longer Pump's revenue is generated from China. Andrew Williams, Halma's Chief Executive, commented: "Longer Pump's alignment with Halma's growth drivers is strong. Sales of their products are driven by increasing demand for healthcare and healthcare research, as well as the urbanisation and industrialisation within China. Their significant local market knowledge and technical resources will help our Fluid Technology sub-sector accelerate growth in this important region. There are also opportunities for Halma to contribute to the growth of Longer Pump, utilising both the network of regional hub offices which Halma has established within China and the worldwide reach of our Fluid Technology businesses."

Been through the interims looking for negatives and can't find any. Half year to half year doesn't throw up any inconsistencies I can find. Without the acquisitions and disposal their debt would have dropped significantly. On this basis I have marked HLMA as an "increase" for my portfolio. Anyone found any negatives? apad

Adjusted pre-tax profit from continuing operations1 up 6% to £60.8m (2011/12: £57.5m) on revenue up 6% at £298.1m (2011/12: £280.0m). Organic growth2 at constant currency: Profit up 3%, Revenue up 3%. Strong growth in Asia Pacific and Australasia with revenue up 17% including 32% growth in China. Good overall revenue performance in developed regions, with USA up 19% offsetting weaker demand in UK and Europe. Health and Analysis and Industrial Safety Sectors performed strongly with double-digit profit growth. Infrastructure Sensors profit marginally lower - Elevator Safety reorganisation completed on schedule. High level of returns maintained: Return on Sales3 of 20.4% (2011/12: 20.5%), Return on Total Invested Capital of 16.4% (2011/12: 16.9%) and Return on Capital Employed of 71.6% (2011/12: 68.8%). Three acquisitions and one disposal completed during the period, acquisition pipeline remains healthy. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations4 up 5% to 12.34p (2011/12: 11.75p). Statutory earnings per share up 25% to 13.14p (2011/12: 10.52p). Interim dividend of 4.06p per share, up 7% (2011/12: 3.79p). Net debt of £74m at period end (March 2012: £19m). Borrowing facilities of £260m in place until 2016, providing significant financial capacity for further organic growth and value adding acquisitions. Andrew Williams, Chief Executive of Halma, commented: "Halma made good progress during the period, achieving record revenue and profit and strong returns. Our focus on building strong positions in markets with sustainable, long-term growth drivers such as Health and Safety regulation, increasing demand for healthcare and the need for life-critical resources (including energy and water) is providing both resilience and opportunities to grow. Order intake continues to be slightly ahead of revenue and Halma remains on track to make further progress in the second half of the year."

It's not so much a comment on HLMA btw, I use it as an indicator of how tough the global economy is -- as Halma choose high growth markets and choose these very carefully.
