I have just been reviewing my investment here and looking back on some of the historical posts on this board. I seem to recall I saw a recommendation for IGR on another board, probably FIF which I was in at the time (early 2012). I started to follow IGR and found this board very informative with excellent quality and informative posts. I found posts from T2R of particular interest with a view from inside the company. Anyway I bit the bullet in October 2012 and made a purchase at 58.8p only to see the price halve by 50% by the following June/July to around 30p. Not one of my better investments I thought at the time but kept faith and now 5 years on still own the same shares at 400p. I have considered selling down a proportion of my holding on a number of occasions but positive company news has always persuaded be to continue and hold. After yesterday's update I will now hold until the year end results (and probably Beyond). I would like to thank all the contributors to this board which I have found very informative over the years and particularly T2R who I think played a significant part in my initial decision to invest.

Beat me to it riv! With lower US tax payments and generally all round good trading and cash inflow, I can see the dividend being raised quite substantially and more than forecast here.

New research note just out from Progressive: Http://www.progressive-research.com/tearsheet/research/ig-design-plc/ig-design-group-its-a-wrap With the benefit of the US tax cuts they see almost 25p EPS for the year starting 1st April. Given that IGR have plenty of Balance Sheet headroom for the acquisitions they've already flagged I'd say IGR are still pretty good value for such a high quality business.

Cenkos; Q3 Trading Update IG Design Group plc (“DG”) has released a Q3/18 update indicating that both gross and adj EBITDA margins are ahead of expectations – we upgrade 2018/19E adj DEPS accordingly. A continuation of the strong performance reported H1/18A, all core geographies remain on track to achieve strong YoY revenue and adj PBT growth, with DG having traded well throughout the Christmas period. The inherent growth potential of the Group’s geographically diverse market positioning (both organic and M&A-led) continues to be underscored by a strong balance sheet. DG’s commitment to a progressive dividend policy (5.5p, 2018E) provides investors with an increasingly attractive combination of growth and income. The recent softening in the share price offers an ideal entry point. BUY. n Strong Q3/18 trading. With trading strong up-to-and-throughout the Christmas period, we reiterate our 2018/19E revenue guidance. We anticipate record sales of £325.1m in 2018E (+4.6% YoY), rising to £342.4m in 2019E. We forecast >70% of 2018E revenue (by destination) will be non-UK – testament to the Group’s diversified, global nature and thereby providing a natural hedge against geo-specific downturns in consumer demand and FX headwinds. n An improved margin profile. We understand the improvement in both gross and adj EBITDA margins has been relatively consistent across all core geographies. As noted at H1/18A, a continued evolution in DG’s sales mix towards higher margin product categories (eg single greetings cards) and manufacturing/M&A-led synergistic benefits post The Lang Companies Inc. (Lang) acquisition in 2017A have all aided sustained margin expansion. The installation of an additional state-of-the art gift wrap manufacturing press in Holland (commencing production Q4/18) is also expected to afford additional upside to 2018E and 2019E. n Upgraded adj DEPS. Considering the above improvements in the Group margin profile, we upgrade our 2018 and 2019 adj DEPS forecasts by 1.5p (+7.5%) and 0.9p (+4.0%) respectively. n Impacts of US tax reform on 2019E. Given DG’s US exposure (~42% total revenue as at H1/18A), we expect adj DEPS to benefit in 2019E+. We anticipate this will also drive a reduction in cash tax payable, thereby further improving the net cash flow position of the Group. Whilst we await final confirmation as to the extent of the likely impact on DG, we believe a 0.5p-1p improvement in 2019E adj DEPS to be an appropriate range – this has not been captured in our upgraded 2019E position. We expect to provide an update (and formal quantification) at the time of the 2018 full year results in Jun-18.

Agreed - loving this paragraph: "we are therefore pleased to upgrade the Group's full year performance with diluted earnings per share1 expected to be ahead of current market expectations and delivering strong year-on-year growth. We continue to see strong cash conversion across the Group and expect average leverage for FY18 to follow the progress made in recent years and be significantly below an average of two times." Plus the benefits of the Trump tax cuts. Plus all the strong growth initiatives being undertaken. Very happy to be invested in this ambitious and well-run company.

Another cracking Trading Update "Strong trading delivers earnings upgrade" Paul Fineman quotes "We are very encouraged with the performance of our businesses across all regions. It is particularly pleasing that we have again upgraded our expectations and we remain confident in the Group's ability to report another year of excellent progress. We are very well placed to continue to create sustainable value for our shareholders through organic growth and will also continue to seek compelling acquisition opportunities underpinned by an ever-strengthening balance sheet and a long track record of proven performance."

I'd also add that the FD and the rest of the Board have probably been wrapped up in completing the acquisition of the Australian greetings card business, which only completed two days ago. This would likely have delayed finalising and approving the closing 31st December position and wording of the trading statement. Volumes are indeed small - looks like this is a way of acquiring cheap shares for the MMs.

Trading update was on Jan 5th last year, but... 2017 - 5th January. In line with upgraded expectations 2016 - 18th January. In line with expectations 2015 - 28th January. In line with expectations 2014 - 29th January. In line with expectations 2013 - 31st January. Broadly in line with expectations 2012 - 13th January. In line with expectations I think the only conclusion I can draw from this is that the trading update will be in January, which is what they said at the interims anyway.

Card reported today - the market didn't like it. The CEO Karen Hubbard was an avid buyer of the company's shares .....they've tanked since she took over (she's bought more today). Lots of trades do not appear anywhere. Just my view on those particular points. GLA.

Remember the new CFO spent circa £400k on shares @ 4.05 within the last month - I think he knows more than the average punter. Volume is miniscule - hopefully the trend should now start to reverse. Update should come anytime now but def Jan (as stated in the interims) MMs collecting easy shares to sell on at £4.00 + post update IMHO.

"Looks like some traders exiting today from those who pushed the price up pre-results. I often wonder how many of these people ever make any money, or at least enough to warrant the risks they're taking before every such RNS? A debate for another day...." This price action might go so way to explaining the above behaviour by some traders... Perhaps the 200 MA will provide some support.

Very encouraging to see him buy around £175,000 of stock at around 405p on average. He must like what he sees! Anyone watch Inside The Factory on BBC2 this week - were IGR featured at all? Don't think so from the summary: Http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09kcx69

Recently appointed IG Design Group PLC Chief Financial Officer Giles Willits purchased 43,573 ordinary shares in a series of transactions. Nice vote of confidence from the new CFO.

I can't comment on Halloween ref as that was in the States over a dozen years ago but this is here and now, Fineman's already said it was up and running on budget and on time with a full order book and I know its in production 24/7 from January so all bodes well IMO but time will tell I suppose.

He seems to be making a lot of nonsense excuses for going into a completely new line of business. When I worked there they tried that with the purchase of Halloween Express and it was a dismal failure. I don’t see this as good news at all.
