'' The Group may become a focus for consolidation or an object of consolidation.'' Re my last post ... and with LPA in rude health I concur with the above which was taken from the last LPA annual report page 4 · Order entry £26.1m (2016: £20.7m) up 26% · Order book £21.6m (2016: £18.0m) up 20% hTTps://www.lpa-group.com/content/uploads/2018/03/19-February-2018-LPA-annual-report-2017.pdf IMHO a bid premium of 40% would now get the BOD nod being 210p a share dyor

............ The coming GROWTH of the RAIL Industry ................ UK UK train passenger numbers are at an all-time high, with projections of doubling over the next 30 years. In response, the UK government has committed to invest CAN $83 billion between 2019 and 2024 to renew and maintain the rail network. Phase 1 of the $96 billion HS2 high-speed rail line connecting London with Birmingham has received approval, with Phase 2, connecting London with Manchester and Leeds, aiming for approval in 2022. London’s city-crossing Elizabeth Line, also known as Crossrail 1, is set to open in 2018. Planning for Crossrail 2 is also underway, responding to projections that London’s population will grow by one million residents by 2020. Asia Fueled by economic growth and rapid urbanization, investment in the rail and transit sector will remain intact. Substantial budgets have been set aside for ambitious new projects as well as upgrades and extensions to existing systems by transport authorities, including those in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, among others. Interest in high speed rail will remain strong. WSP is currently serving as the Joint Development Partner to assist the Malaysia MyHSR and Land Transport Authority of Singapore on the 350km Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail project, which is slated to be completed by 2026. In Thailand, WSP completed the feasibility study and definitive design for the proposed Northern and North Eastern HSR Lines for the Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning. China will continue to be a key player in this market, seeking opportunities to support regional nations to develop HSR networks as part of the One Belt One Road initiative. Funding is also in place to expand the mass transit system in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The development of rail projects in Malaysia will continue to make headlines and attract global interest. The reference design of the third MRT line in Kuala Lumpur─the 40km mostly underground Circle Line─commenced in the latter part of 2017, while the full-scale construction of LRT Line 3 is set to start soon. WSP was appointed as the Rail Systems Consultant on both projects. Similarly, in Thailand, Bangkok’s transit system is being extended with new lines and a new monorail network to improve connectivity and address traffic congestion. In Hong Kong and Singapore, investment will continue to be available for network extensions and system upgrades to their aging mass transit networks. Australia/New Zealand Australia’s two largest cities, Sydney and Melbourne, are each forecast to double in size by 2050 to over 8 million people. The Australian government’s Smart Cities Plan emphasizes the importance of connectivity to shape the public transport investment landscape for rail and transit. This includes construction of separate new multibillion dollar metrorail systems in Sydney and Melbourne crossing underneath heavily congested central business districts, harbours and rivers. Existing passenger rail networks are being extended, made safer through level crossing removals and grade separations, and undergoing capacity upgrades by employing latest signalling technologies, such as CBTC and ETCS. Light rail systems are also experiencing a resurgence with two new lines in Sydney, and within smaller cities including Gold Coast Newcastle, Canberra, and Adelaide. On a national scale, the $10.4 billion Inland Rail Program will provide a 1700km freight link between Melbourne and Brisbane. The result will be increased capacity and reduced travel time and costs to regional centres. The project is well under development, and the initial contractor packages will be awarded in 2018. The Government is looking at “Faster Rail” network improvements to provide travel solutions for regional-area access to the main cities in support of the urban spread. Neighbouring New Zealand is also becoming highly urbanized, particularly in Auckland and Wellington. The country is looking ahead to build smarter cities that include a new underline rail system below the Auckland central business district to address the heavily congested surrounding road network. A recent change of government will likely bring a shift in funding, with investment likely to favour rail projects over highway projects. Recent disaster recovery projects, traditional maintenance, replacement of life-expired equipment and minor improvement projects are also necessities that require funding. Canada The Canadian federal government remains committed to infrastructure spending, with up to $3.4 billion to be allocated through the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF). The PTIF will fund up to 50 percent of the eligible cost of transit projects, including the rehabilitation of public transit systems, planning of future system improvements and expansions, enhanced asset management, and system optimization and modernization.

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

LPA now is a Takeover sitting duck And IMO the wording of the BOD Update has not helped re the present share price drop HOW Can the BOD talk down Rail growth ? hTTps://www.railjournal.com/index.php/metros/global-rail-traffic-forecast-for-continued-growth.html March 09, 2017 Global rail traffic forecast for continued growth ''ACCORDING to a report published by SCI Verkehr, Germany, all types of rail traffic are expected to grow up to 2025, building on the growth already achieved since 2005. The strongest growth is expected in urban rail, followed by mainline passenger and freight.'' GLOBAL RAIL AND TRANSIT TRENDS FOR 2018 As rail transport demand continues to rise around the world, WSP’s expertise in transport infrastructure is propelling rail and transit networks toward sustainable mobility. Stakeholders are encountering greater complexities as expanding metropolitan areas redefine emerging transport landscapes. Moving forward, WSP is pioneering systemic solutions to tackle challenges and maximize opportunities for rail transportation development. According to SCI Verkehr, an independent consultancy company for the global transportation sector, freight, passenger and urban rail transport around the world has been on the rise since 2005, with the latter two segments showing constant positive development that is expected to continue. Rail transport demand is particularly on the rise, responding to the growing demands of rapidly expanding metropolitan areas. hTTps://www.wsp.com/en-GL/news/2018/global-trends-2018

THE RAIL INDUSTRY IS NOW ABOUT TO EMBARK UPON A MASSIVE UNDERTAKING AS IT TRANSFORMS INTO A DIGITAL RAILWAY Loads of work for the next decade One of the reasons this must happen is because there has been massive growth in passenger numbers using the Railways over the last 10 years has doubled hTTps://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/sep/14/train-journey-numbers-double-since-privatisation-railways-uk-report and this is what Network Rail now say ''Our railway is also the most congested. More and more trains are overcrowded as growth in passenger numbers outstrips the increase in the number of trains on the network. Passenger numbers grow by six per cent each year and will double in the next 25 years. hTTps://www.networkrail.co.uk/communities/passengers/ The other is MONEY .... a digital Railway will work out cheaper by 40% and increase capacity of passengers carried by around 30% at the same time. The general benefits are well known. Certainly, some past studies – with the likes of DfT, Network Rail and RSSB – show that a digital railway would be 40 per cent cheaper to operate and maintain than conventional rail. This is largely due to there being a reduction in trackside equipment, but also because fewer employees would be needed to operate it. hTTps://www.railengineer.uk/2018/03/12/tipping-the-balance-towards-a-digital-future/ So do you think I am shooting a line here ?

Nice chart pennant formation taking shape Next positive RNS should move the share price up re length of pennant Note the chart pennant previous that started Nov 2017 through to Jan 2018 SP then rose from 145p to 175p ... 30p rise Present flag is going to become bigger ... as it is already 35p rise now IMO looking good chartwise ie to 200p hTTp://www.chartpatterns.com/flagsandpennants.htm Good stuff init I still feel however that at this share price a bid is more likely to come in from one of the later EU entrants into the UK Rail Sector looking for market share. Whilst small LPA is growing and has a very decent client list plus a growing skilled workforce. A bid of anything over 225p from here would have to be looked at seriously by the BOD
