kinwah: Tiger is there a recognisable cycle? Having held the shares for about 10 years there was a share price peak at around 180p and talk of trading at a gallop but any selling window was absolutely tiny. As you say we should get some clarity this week on why the shares have spiked.

kinwah: The recent share price movement looks very suspicious. If I had to guess I would say the company is in bid talks. The industry background if anything is negative with Hitachi announcing redundancies at its train building factory in County Durham. The directors are elderly and will want a smooth succession at some point. I hope I'm right about the possible bid talks as LPA has not been my greatest investment over the years and an exit would be very welcome.

ansc: I somehow missed this RNS on 27th June notifying two directors buying including the new CFO's 5k @ 107p (even tho' he's new to the company, he should be in a position by now to know what's happening): https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/lpa-group-LPA/share-news/LPA-Group-PLC-Director-PDMR-Shareholding/77751093

buywell3: The RAIL Industry is 66.6% of what LPA do .... currently the media are saying this industry is set for growth to 2025 ( see my posts ) 19th Feb 2018 the LPA BOD said ... 19-February-2018-LPA-annual-report-2017.pdf hTTps://www.lpa-group.com/content/uploads/2018/03/19-February-2018-LPA-annual-report-2017.pdf LPA Group Plc – Annual Report & Accounts 2017 LPA'S BUSINESS AND STRATEGY The Group is a market leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of LED based lighting and electro-mechanical systems and a distributor of engineered components focussed on the transportation (including rail, infrastructure and aviation) and aerospace & defence markets. These are growth markets in the UK and globally. All Group activities serve the same markets (to a greater or lesser extent), have a mutual dependence on rail (which accounts for more than two thirds of Group turnover), share resource and frequently work on the same projects. Now we get this ... LPA GROUP PLC AGM Trading Update 21 Mar 2018 At the AGM of the Group to be held at 12.00 noon today, Michael Rusch, Chairman, will make the following statement: "In my statement included in the Annual Report published in January, I reported that output during the first quarter of the current financial year was at record levels. I am pleased to report that this has been sustained during the first half of the financial year, and the order book for delivery during the remainder of the year should present us with an excellent result. While this performance should be at an exceptional level, well above recent historical levels and not necessarily sustainable in the immediate future, it has established the Company at a new level and in a very strong position to exploit many opportunities for major future growth in the medium and longer term. "The UK rail market is enjoying unprecedented, and quite possibly unsustainable, demand for improved infrastructure and new rolling stock, much of which may be satisfied in the short term by imports and in the longer term potentially by the establishment of new assembly facilities in the UK by international companies. We are seeking to establish ourselves in the supply chains of these new, mainly European, suppliers, but this is challenging because it requires us to displace existing members of their supply chains. As an established exporter, we are used to this challenge; to which our response is to work hard at building new relationships with those new customers whom we believe will be here for the long term while sustaining our relationships with our existing export customer base. "We have taken advantage of this demand for new rolling stock,by investing in capital and resources to improve productivity. However, we believe that in the short term the UK market for renewals, upgrades and refurbishment of existing rolling stock has been distorted by this flood of new vehicles, with consequently lower levels of demand, undermining the confidence of some of our UK customers within this segment of the market. "The new major effort to give additional impetus to 'Digitising the Railway' will create more opportunities for us. This is not just the adoption of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) and European Train Control System (ETCS), which will increase the capacity of the network, it will create opportunities for our Ethernet backbone technology for installation on new and existing rolling stock, for our digitally controlled LED Lighting systems for rolling stock and infrastructure and our 'at seat' charging outlets for mobile devices. It will also embrace electronic ticketing, Wi-Fi, mobile phone coverage and a host of other passenger-facing functions and opportunities to improve customers' travelling experience, creating demand for our new products and services. "In addition to the excitement in the rail market overall, we are putting additional focus on our Aircraft Ground Power Supply products and we see an improved market in Aerospace and Defence, which had been quiet of late. But the media says ''Rail transport demand is particularly on the rise, responding to the growing demands of rapidly expanding metropolitan areas. According to research conducted by the International Railway Research Board (IRRB) and the International Union of Railways (IUR), demand for long distance rail, demographic evolutions and lifestyle changes will continue to drive this expansion, as will technological advancements towards more energy-efficient systems for rolling stock and infrastructure. IRRB/IUR research foresees convergence towards a global rail system with a maximum degree of interoperability, as well as a global railway supply market.'' hTTps://www.wsp.com/en-GL/news/2018/global-trends-2018 Which agrees with 19th Feb 2018 the LPA BOD said ... 19-February-2018-LPA-annual-report-2017.pdf hTTps://www.lpa-group.com/content/uploads/2018/03/19-February-2018-LPA-annual-report-2017.pdf LPA Group Plc – Annual Report & Accounts 2017 LPA'S BUSINESS AND STRATEGY The Group is a market leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of LED based lighting and electro-mechanical systems and a distributor of engineered components focussed on the transportation (including rail, infrastructure and aviation) and aerospace & defence markets. These are growth markets in the UK and globally. So why the AGM negative comments which have knocked over 20% off the share price and worse ... damaged what was a VERY strong technical chart. ? Did the LPA BOD think that their AGM statement would have no effect on the share price of LPA ? We need some clarification in the form of another RNS

freddie ferret: Share price reaction has been good - stability in the face of a broader bear market, good update.

rivaldo: The AGM statement just issued certainly starts off brilliantly: "In my statement included in the Annual Report published in January, I reported that output during the first quarter of the current financial year was at record levels. I am pleased to report that this has been sustained during the first half of the financial year, and the order book for delivery during the remainder of the year should present us with an excellent result. While this performance should be at an exceptional level, well above recent historical levels and not necessarily sustainable in the immediate future, it has established the Company at a new level and in a very strong position to exploit many opportunities for major future growth in the medium and longer term." Subsequently there's a huge level of commentary and detail. This is fantastically informative relative to most companies. Is it necessary at this stage rather than in the results? Potentially it detracts somewhat from the overall message, and certainly the share price reaction has been muted despite the excellent performance and prospects, which are obfuscated by the comments re existing rolling stock and imported goods.

castleford tiger: All A increase in profits to 2 million should see the shares get very close to that 200p barrier. Market cap is 18 million which is 12x last years profits. 2 million should mean mark cap of 24 and a 25% jump in the share price. It can only go one way right now. Tiger

rivaldo: Cheers hastings. LPA does look cheap on those numbers. This is a relatively small holding for me - I bought around the 130p mark from memory - but today's RNS reads extremely well and I may buy more if funds and circumstances (the share price!) dictate.
