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.

Hi all, I'm new to this, any ideas why judges dropped so much today?

lullabite, when has David Circurel sold part of his holdings? He has 759k shares, about 12.4% of the company. I have not seen any recent rns's announcing sales.

Thoughts on davids placement ? Why do you think he sold part of his holdings ? What do you think of sucession? David is almost 70 years old

On reflection, it clearly is not acceptable to recalculate ROCE by adding back amortisation to the numerator EBIT because the denominator, capital employed, has been periodically reduced as goodwill is amortised. This means the Sharepad/Morningstar ROCE ratios are correct. I have not deleted the above post in case anyone wishes to think about it or comment. This would seem to mean that the poor ROCE figures for 2012-2016 have been dragged down by central office costs. To extend the picture, here are the comparisons from 2008-2011. . 2008 2009 2010 2011ROTIC 34 44 45 46ROCE(Sharepad) 16.5 15.8 (1.0) 22.7 2010 ROCE is distorted by a sizeable charge relating to convertible redeemable shares that had no bearing on the underlying performance of the company.

Agreed. Excellent presentation. One of my key ratios when researching stocks is return on capital employed, adjusted operating profit/(total assets - current liabilities). I usually rely on Sharepad's data, which comes from Morningstar, although their capital employed denominator is always inexplicably slightly higher than if I try to calculate it. JDG rely on ROTIC, return on invested capital, for assessing the performance of their subsidiaries. A definition is provided in the 2017 report. "The annual rate of ROTIC is calculated by comparing attributable earnings excluding central costs, adjusting items and before interest, tax and amortisation ("EBITA") with the investment in plant and equipment, goodwill and unamortised intangibles and net current assets (excluding cash)." I found the denominator impossible to calculate from the accounts but the presentation made clear that it represented money actually spent on the purchase of all acquisitions plus any money subsequently spent on them (very little). Property is excluded. ROTIC clearly works for JDG but it is of less help to investors wishing to compare performance with other companies. Below is comparison of Sharepad's ROCE and JDG's ROTIC for the last 6 years. . 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017ROTIC 40 30 24 25 15 21ROCE 5.8 8.6 7.0 5.2 2.6 14.4(approx.-Sharepad figure not yet received) In fact the Sharepad figures are pretty useless for a company like JDG for the same reason that their normalised eps figures bear little relation to brokers' forecasts. To calculate a meaningful ROCE ratio, amortisation of acquired intangibles needs to be added back to EBIT, together with other adjustments, giving adjusted EBITA as the numerator. . 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017ROTIC 40 30 24 25 15 21ROCE 27 20 18 23 16 25(approx.-Sharepad capital employed figure not yet received) These ROCE figures are excellent. Anything above 15% is generally considered to be good.

Well worth watching, gives a great insight into David's criteria for acquired companies along with how the UK undervalue small Scientific business's compared to Continental Europe and US/Canada. JDG's is a very high class collection of business's and deserves to be valued on a premium rating imo. ROTIC of 30% achievable with a full return to profitability of the 3 under-performing units of 2016. Oxford Cryo appears very interesting - especially the Square Kilometre Array which they're bidding for a piece of.

NY Boy, Have you posted on the correct thread? If you have can you expand as I'm not aware of the IMM & Lupuzor - JDG connection.

I've also been in a similar length of time, would be great to see David Cicurel present if he can be persuaded to head North. Good luck!

David Cicurel and JDG come to the Beckenham Mello every six months to update us after the results come out but this year I may get them to come to Derby and meet a few hundred more investors instead. I have held this company for over eight years and it is in the top three most successful Mello companies so very appropriate for them to be there.

Very nice ahead statement, unsurprisingly considering the buoyant orderbook throughout the year. Feels like £1.25p EPS. Results on 20th March Timing work well for a DC visit to Mello Derby Mr Stredder?
