Good meeting. Very busy year with seven acquisitions. Largest two right at end of year, so no impact on profits yet. Constant pressures on costs from IT, Compliance, H&S. Overall positive, though we all wait for the potential economies of scale to appear. They have to deliver FinnCaps 4.3p and then people might take notice. No surprises good or bad. I remain a frustrated and bored holder !!

Stemis, Agree but they're also issued additional shares along with the debt to fund the acquisitions. This combined with the tendency for them to pay higher multiples for the acquired companies than they are rated at themselves will make a smaller step up in EPS imo.

Stemis, as they issued equity, average shares in issue rise from 41.9 to 46.7m a rise of 11%. So, an 11% increase in profit would leave flat eps. Even a "step change" of 20% increase in profit would only lead to less than 10% eps increase. And context. The last three years operating profit growth ? 10%, 5%, 10%. Are they going to double that ? Especially with staff numbers now up to over 500, a 28% increase. Staff costs are consistently about 68% of revenue, and were £12.3m in 2015/16 ( 389 employees) and £14.3m in 2016/17 So what for this year at 500 staff ? Even allowing for timing, and averages, It would suggest an increase in staff costs by c£2-3m. Revenue is only forecast to grow by £3.1m.......

Next year is key. They've spent a lot of money on acquisitions towards the end of the year which has increased debt but not yet impacted profits fully. I'd expect this year to see a step change in profit.

Another set of poor results. ROCE has fallen sharply last couple of years. They would really be better served just running it as a cash cow and paying a chunky dividend. Would have to hope if they don't deliver material upside in EPS then pressure sets in for them to do exactly that. Rating would be far more generous if they did.

The disappointing phrase is "balance the growth of our business with the need to improve the infrastructure necessary to support it". That is flagging the need for yet more spending on IT and overhead. There is also virtually nothing in the statement about how the 1Q has gone. It actually says "the Board enters the upcoming year with confidence". It is not upcoming, it started three months ago......

Disappointed with only a 5.5% eps increase ( adjusted , diluted).

Ah - thanks Graham1TY. At least 3.8p EPS is in-line anyway. I note Finncap have 4.3p EPS pencilled in for this year. With a following wind and decent performance by the acquisitions we could see a 55p share price at some point if that forecast is met or slightly bettered.

Adjusting out interest charges........really?

And note, all this adjusted stuff can be very misleading. Statutory eps FELL from 2.6p to 2.5p

No, they have misled us again. The headline 3.9p is undiluted. FinnCap forecast is diluted. Very naughty !!

Agreed - though 3.9p EPS is actually a tad ahead of expectations (which were 3.8p)! The big acquisitions will benefit this year, which will hopefully be extremely exciting by HML's standards :o))

Results look ok, if a little dull. Pretty much in line. Most of the benefit from acquisitions to come through next year.

I was expecting the results today. Always get a little edgy when results are delayed.

Moving up again - I wonder if there's a little interest coming in due to the above and to the health and safety building services HMLH provide: Http://www.thehmlgroup.co.uk/our-services/health-safety/

Good to see a keen 24k buy at 42p this morning - that's 2p above this morning's 40p offer price. Interesting comment on the HMLH web site regarding the appalling Grenfell House fire, which reinforces the need for professional and properly organised property managers: Http://www.thehmlgroup.co.uk/fire-safety/ "Fire Safety The dreadful events at Grenfell Tower on the 14th June remind us all how critically important it is that we as property managers fulfil our duties in advising our clients on the fire risks inherent in blocks of flats. As the circumstances that gave rise to this tragic event are revealed in the coming weeks and months, we anticipate they will reflect mostly on the safety design and fabric of the building. There is however so much that can be done procedurally and organisationally to reduce fire risks. HML as professional managing agents will re-double our efforts to ensure that fire risk is professionally assessed and mitigated wherever possible. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their friends and families who have so unfairly been affected by this tragedy."

Looks like Oryx have taken advantage of bored holders and topped up via a 2nd holding of 125,000 shares. This to me is a solid investment, which I will hold for years as part off my portfolio.

Blimey looks like I exited here just in time, albeit I know no reason for the fall. Indeed it might be a good opportunity to buy back in.
