Well said I think the buy and hold strategy will work for both JDG and SDI Todays buy does seem a blinder acquired for 3 times profits, circa £1M turnover and no debt plus it is in a great space with products that SDI can grow and improve. Two of these a year should work fine

I bought a few at 18p, but didn't fully commit because of the historic share dilution. Being sympathetic you can argue that they didn't have the cashflow or record for debt finance so was their only way to expand. The company was also lowly rated so there wasn't a large disparity between the purchased company and SDI's rating which led to significant dilution. Now the situation appears fundamentally different, they are more highly rated, are able to fund small acquisitions from cashflow. My understanding is that there is much less competition for companies with earning of less tham £1 Ebitda as proved by today's purchase so SDI do now have an advantage over JDG in that these small cheap acquisitions still move the dial. JDG are looking for slightly bigger fish to make a step change in earnings but these are pricier. That said I've held JDG since 2008 and am a happy holder.

Both quality. I should own JDG, not sure why I don't. However, can't really blame SDI for needing to use equity. Came from a tiny market cap base with unproven strategy execution

Comparisons have been made with this company and Scientific Digital Imaging SDI Both seem to be doing well albeit with SDI 1 YEAR CHANGE +79.35% V JDG 1 YEAR CHANGE +36.79% hTTps://markets.ft.com/data/equities/tearsheet/profile?s=sdi:LSE SDI have performed a bit better and have much less debt on their balance sheet. No doubt because they are several years behind JDG in their development , acquiring other companies that provide good fits and x selling opportunities. It is good to see smaller UK based Scientific Engineering companies trading so well as the UK heads towards Brexit. Well done , England needs more like these.

Pretty clear we're looking at a substantial forecast beat! I think we'll see £1.60+. Whilst they are cautioning against a H2 bias (as in the last 3 years) a stable order book at the end of June followed by a significant improvement in order intake in the 1st 10 weeks of H2 (they did 76.2p H217) suggests they'll at least match H1 imo. Happy to hold.

Interim results. Record revenue, profit up 50% Outlook "In the last three years, trading has displayed a second half bias which is not expected to be replicated this year. Despite this, since the end of the period under review, order intake has continued to be positive and Organic intake for the first ten weeks of the second half is significantly ahead of the same period in 2017 giving the Board confidence that adjusted profit before tax and EPS will be ahead of current market expectations for the year as a whole.

I do not know why he reduced, but he is nearly 70 years old with shares worth over £20m. Perhaps he wants have some fun before he is too old. Also JDG is very illiquid so could be helpful to the market with a larger free float.

According to Sharepad, forecasts for JDG are 31st Dec 2017 2018E 2019ETurnover (£m) 71.4 75.3 77.2Pre-tax profit (£m) 10.4 10.8 11.1eps (p) 131.9 85.9 137.1 2017 PTP and eps figures are company adjusted, which are calculated on more or less the same basis as broker forecasts. The 2018 eps forecast looks like an error to me. It would mean the tax rate on £10.8m pre-tax profit would be around 48%! Does anyone have access to an alternative 2018 eps forecast? Sharepad gets most of its data from Morning Star.

Trading Update and Notice of Interim Results The Directors of Judges Scientific, a group involved in the buy and build of scientific instrument businesses, update shareholders and the market regarding the Group's trading performance during the first half of the current financial year. The Group's results for the six-month period to 30 June 2018 will include a first time contribution from Oxford Cryosystems Ltd, which was acquired in July 2017. "Organic" in this statement excludes the performance of this business. Order intake Organic order intake in the first half was solid, showing a progression of 2.3% on the excellent performance achieved in the same period last year. On 30 June 2018, the Organic order book stood at 15.0 weeks of sales against 15.0 weeks at the beginning of 2018 and 15.4 weeks at 30 June 2017. With bookings at Oxford Cryosystems in line with its budget, overall order intake was consistent with what is required to meet market expectations without depleting the order book. The Group's overall order book, including Oxford Cryosystems, at 30 June 2018 stood at 14.6 weeks. First Half Performance The solid order book from the beginning of 2018 enabled the Group to maintain the momentum gathered in 2017. Currency has still been a positive influence, despite Sterling temporarily strengthening in the first quarter. Overall the Group has delivered a solid performance, including significant progress in relation to the subsidiary that had historic production issues. The Board expects the interim results to show strong progress in revenues, EBIT and earnings per share. Full Year Outlook The Group has enjoyed a good first half and the outlook for the year is positive. Although the bias towards second half performance observed in recent years may not be evident this year, the Board is confident that market expectations for the year will be achieved. Notice of Results The Company expects to announce its interim results for the six months to 30 June 2018 on 18 September 2018.

October 2017! Of more interest to me is the late April 18 arrangement of new banking facilities which suggests to me they may have a fairly chunky (£10-15m) new acquisition lined up. Last time the banking facility was increased the acquisition of Armfield quickly followed.
