Surely there are opportunities as well to do business with firms taking over some of carillion work?

Why is HSS silent on its exposure to Carillion? Is it gathering information and assessing it before considering whether to issue an RNS?

Speedy will be taking the carillion hit as it was prefered supplier plus the contractors on top. Double whammy for them. Non the less HSS are not particularly solvent themselves are they!

Its the many carillion contractors that will go bust not carillion themselves in this case. However there must be fifty business going to the wall as they will never get paid.

Will be interesting to see if this is the straw that pushes HSS into insolvency.

Who is going to pay the pension deficit?

So the government is going to bail carillon and the banks but not the steel industry. That would be typical.

According to today's FT, "trade credit insurers including Euler Hermes (owned by Allianz) have started to pull their support from Carillion because of its financial problems". If true, then unfortunately these things tend to end badly

I personally think the hysteria around carillon will subside soon. Equity holders might take a bath (already have) but it won't go bust imo

Anybody know what exposure HSS has to Carillion, especially in terms of possible bad debt and contract disruption?

Shareprice lost 2p on absolutely miniscule 'AT' trading late on this afternoon. These markets are soo rigged at times. Hybrasil, I remember you from the ADVFN BB days probably around a decade ago (I was under a different username then) Can I ask how you did out of your ADVFN investment ? Maybe you still hold ? (If I remember rightly didnt you own 3% (or more) of ADVFN back then ?

In the old days when many listed companies had to report to the market quarterly they accompanied the narratives with a detailed array of financial figures sufficient to enable people to understand what was going on. Since the practice of quarterly reporting became not a mandatory requirement, companies have chosen to issue a skeleton extract of financial numbers. Skilled and numerate readers could dissect the skeleton,and coupled with the previously reported detailed numbers, to arrive at some kind of estimation of the current Balance Sheet position. However, what I would say is that a strong company would have nothing to hide, and because the financial figures are available internally anyway they would publish them to the public, in fact as a selling point. Weak companies tend to accentuate their limited strength and then waffle about the rest. Referring to the potential cost saving by HSS it is not easy to achieve what they have identified, in full, or in good time. We should therefore discount part of it. Turning around a very sick company not only requires excellent leadership but also an element of luck due from many external factors which are beyond their control. I don't think the external macroeconomic and political factors are favourable.

It is short-term v long-term. I have no confidence in this Company in the long-term. Things go in cycle. If it does not make "real" profit when the going is good, it will find it hard when the trading situation is tough.

The market likes the strategic review because it is hitting the right notes, but in my opinion, it is not good enough. Firstly, I want to point out that the directors are misleading investors by saying that they have returned the company to operating profit. As you know depreciation and amortisation are a large and integral part of the company's costs, but the company wants to focus on EBITDA. Operating profit should include depreciation and amortisation. Furthermore, interest is a real cost and needs to be paid. Identification of an additional cost saving is welcome but the amount, even if achieved, is not earth shattering. Net debt is sky high. All the efforts made will only chip away the debt mountain slowly. Short-term investors may do well by trading the shares, but long-term holders will gain little, as there is no dividend and any economic slowdown will negate the "promising views" being made. Of course, the new CEO wants to take credit. However, partial disclosure of financial statements without a detailed Profit and Loss Account, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement is biased. If they show the full picture you may be horrified to see a bottom line loss, an indifferent balance sheet with huge debt and poor cash flow just to make ends meet. I am appalled by many companies' stance of only disclosing partial financial statement for interim reporting. The standard of disclosure is simply not high enough.

If anybody is listening to the podcast i'd be fascinated to hear how they propose financing the £220 million debt. Glad to see you are now in profit hybrasil, market reacting positively, and one should always go with the trend in spite of my own personal views here.
