grahamburn: Repeating the "Risks and Uncertainties" part of the results is not especially helpful or relevant. The relatively new requirement for all companies to list these baffles me, as companies effectively have to list what might happen if the "end of business as we know it" happened. If one followed through on the "Risks and Uncertainties" in the reports of every company in which one held shares the result would be...... ...... one wouldn't hold shares in any of them. Try it! However, it is true that today's statement is hardly scintillating, though analysts still seem to be relaxed about the company's future - and share price performance (re: last post).
this_is_me: There was not a lot of cash rescued from investments in CLLN or PFG. I am just happy that my small investment here is showing signs of doing more than providing an excellent dividend from a bombed out share price.
arf dysg: I would have thought that a share price higher now than at any time in the last eight months was a hint that something's up. Maybe there's an unreported buy in the pipeline.
lord gnome: Ha! I'll settle for anywhere north of £1 for now. Who needs a Golden Cross. Seriously though, KCOM does seem to have turned a corner and the share price looks a lot stronger than of late.
gretel1921: Septimus,this might be of interest: KCOM's expansion continues What a transformation it’s been over the past few years for KCom Group PLC (LON:KCOM). Since the onset of the global financial crisis the one-time Kingston Communications has changed its name, its strategy and even the nature of the infrastructure portfolio it owns. The result? – from a share price low of less than 12p hit in the doldrums of the 2008 bear market, the shares are now riding high at just over 110p, an increase of around 90%. Interestingly, 2008 was also the year that Bill Halbert moved over from a role as independent director and into the chief executive’s role. He describes the transformation the company has undergone in straightforward enough terms. “The business was originally a fixed-line telephony business,” he says. By a series of historical accidents it had managed to stay outside of the purview of British Telecom and was instead floated on the London Stock Exchange by Hull City Council during the dotcom boom. It then had to adapt itself to the rapidly changing world of the internet, which it did with mixed success. “What it then did,” continues Halbert, “was attempt to move up the value chain. That’s an undertaking very few companies succeeded in, but when I joined in 2006 that was what it had tried to do – it had created a national network and made a raft of IT acquisitions.” Then came the financial crisis. “By the time we got to 2007 and 2008 we were deep into slowdown,” says Halbert. “Lehman Brothers was our biggest customer. The business was in a bit of a crisis and there was a need in larger terms to figure out just what should this business be?” Then came the key realisation. “What was clear was that it should not be a telco,” says Halbert. “And happily when you looked at the various assets within KCOM you could see that there was a set of capabilities that if you could put them together would put the company in the right place – into IP and cloud-based services.” The aspiration that KCOM would be the owner and operator of a national telecoms network was abandoned. The traffic on the KCOM network was made over to BT in what at the time was the biggest wholesale deal BT had ever done. Subsequently, a buyer then came in for the network itself in the shape of CityFibre, which offered £90 mln in an all-cash deal. With a little bit of a boost from subsequent trading, that transaction has allowed KCOM to clear all of its debt and to emerge at the end of the financial year to March 2016 with net cash of £7.4 mln. The business which has emerged has two strands. There’s the remaining internet service provider type business centred around Hull and, more broadly, Yorkshire. Significant investment in new fibre-optic capabilities here is ongoing. And there’s the cloud-based system integration business, in which KCOM is partnered with industry giants like Cisco, Amazon and Microsoft. Here, Halbert offers a key business insight. “It’s all very well,” he says, “automating systems and processes inside big companies. That can result in significant cost savings and be a useful exercise in itself. “But you can only create value,” he says, “by interacting.” So, for example, cloud-based contact centre solutions are offered to HMRC in one of KCOM’s biggest ever contract wins, that allow HMRC to communicate with massively increased volumes of callers at peak times in the tax year. “Our vision,” concludes Halbert, “is to create an asset-light, IP cloud-based company that will be a new world disruptive challenger to the big IT and systems integration companies. And the market is just waking up to us as an organisation to watch.” Share Alastair_55b0a5ec88c28.jpg Alastair Ford   
toffeeman: Over the last 6 months the share price has dropped 20% :)
mayers: DAVE OF DEVON Thanks.The share price had been falling well-prior to the announcement but I imagine some folk had been taking profit as they did not expect further rise in the share price It is not generally regarded as a "growth" share but one with a consistent substantial dividend. I had considered adding today but the share price seems to have fallen below support at about 110 and on previous occasions the falls have been considerable , only for it to recover as quickly as it has fallen. As you say this is a long term hold mainly dividend orientated.
dogwalker: Pity the share price isn't !
ganthorpe: Is there anything going on here? I see the Director changes and a strong rise in the share price for no obvious reason. I have held KCOM for several years and it pays a good divi but no growth.
