Monty9. My view exactly. We will have to meet at the AGM!!

Monty was the name of my late dog, so I am confident we can absolve monty68 of any conspiracy in my machinations ;-) I think my terminology and figs were correct although 'margin' does get used rather widely. Before buying I had read the last interim and last audited accounts and also the Stockopedia record. As far as the wisdom of my purchase is concerned that is for each interested party to decide for themselves and see how they get on. For me that's what makes the process more fun than other ways of seeking a financial return. My own view is the new management team are quality, have achieved a lot in a difficult period and are now well placed to achieve great things. Of course its still early stage and a bit of a punt - my favourite!

Mr. Mac, your questions are worth posing. Perhaps more cash was spent on product development? Hopefully the annual results will make this clearer, and if not, a question at the AGM. I'm happy to hold, and optimistic.

Mr MacGregor The reason Monty9 was thanked was because he shared his thoughts following a presentation at Mello on Monday night, which I also appreciated. "Also, perhaps Woodcutter could have another go at answering my question: During a historically good twelve months to 31st March 2017 (combined H2 and H1 to encompass the two big orders), why did they fail to make any cash? For the record, as Woodcutter is not very good at looking things up, they started with &0.5m and finished with £0.47m." The inventory went up by a similar amount and the debtors also rose. It's all there in the balance sheet. I'm afraid the only arrogance on display here is coming from you.

Monty,read this guys earlier posts on IGE! I wouldn't worry. Even the simplest fact i.e.less cash at the end of the period , which he raised last time was simply dealt with. Cash plus inventory = assets. There is almost a pathological desire to talk down the company. I would not be surprised if this person is one of the exposed lightweights previously employed by ISH, now thankfully no longer!

I dont know who Monty9 is, but he/she is NOT a relative of mine, so far as I am aware, so dont make assumptions. I just think that this company is going in the right direction, and I have been a long term shareholder.

Why thank Monty9? He's only peddling the same tripe as Woodcutter, his relative monty 68 and amt. Margins excellent? The net profit margin in the last full year results was 3%, rising to about 5% now according to the trading update. How can that be described as excellent? Operational gearing? I've been lectured on how, due to fixed costs, increased revenue will feed straight into profit by the above three. Hmm. In the previous financial year they made a loss in H1 while the company was in recovery mode. For the purposes of comparative analysis I draw a line through that H1 and all the previous loss making periods. The first large contracts came in H2 2016 and completed by H1 this current financial year. By combining H2 2016 with current H1 you get a cleaner picture of company performance. Sorry for the lengthy explanation but it's necessary for Woodcutter, whose arrogance tends to get in the way of his brain such that he wasn’t able to follow this last time. So to get back to the point, when I compare the two rolling twelve month periods I get: H2 2016/H1 2017 revenue £4m, profit before tax £0.27m H1 2017/H2 2017 revenue £4.5m, profit before tax £0.25m (see trading update) I’m not seeing this mysterious operational gearing, or any profit growth, let alone profit growth that would justify a forward pe of 50. Also, perhaps Woodcutter could have another go at answering my question: During a historically good twelve months to 31st March 2017 (combined H2 and H1 to encompass the two big orders), why did they fail to make any cash? For the record, as Woodcutter is not very good at looking things up, they started with £0.5m and finished with £0.47m.

Just made a small initial ISA purchase at 8.9p following an excellent presentation by the management team at Mello. Margins and ROI excellent, balance sheet should hold up, recent turnaround impressive in what must have been a tricky situation, and, IMV, the potential to keep expanding the applications for their technology to continue current growth rates for some years to come. Given the apparent operational gearing this could prove to be a gem.

Hi Peter, don't think we will hear anything much before the pre close update. I'm guessing this will be in a couple of weeks or so looking at last year's timing. I'm very optimistic especially as we seem to have consolidated at the current level.If the outlook is for further growth and new products then i can see a fairly swift journey into the teens and beyond. Increased profits will further underpin.

Looks like one or two attendees to davidosh's Mello dinner were impressed enough to spend some money. Any new information imparted?

The 31,546 @ 8.87 was a buy as I've had a little top up. Probably enough... for now. ;o) GLA

News soon on the Precision Linescan Detector? The most recent update was in April: "The development phase of the government grant supported project to design a new generation of Precision Linescan Detectors has come to an end and the prototype will be on display for the first time at the Security and Counter Terror exhibition at Olympia in May. The outstanding pre-launch tasks relate to final optimisation of the software and transfer to production."

Yes a lot of old friends lost a lot of money (me included) on that one.

I eventually gave up on that a year or two ago, a bit painful, but I hope it comes good for the ones that remain.

Thanks B. well I was always optimistic! Faith came a bit later along with new management. Not sure exactly when we started this pilgrimage but twelve years ago at least. Would be nice to see our other horse grow a fourth leg.......

Good to see non news driven tick up this morning and also Cantors on the bid. I guess new "buyers" entering prior to pre close update. Good consolidation recently building a base for the next level. Well done IGE!

This will get another boost when they launch the precision linescan detector.
