A Market Cap then Tiger of around 50% of Turnover and making 2M profits and paying increasing dividends for several years with not much debt. A supplier to the transport sector ( mainly Rail) where passenger numbers are growing Could a foreign buyer emerge to put this out of its misery ? How low would the pound have to go For the LPA BOD to take the dough

Gallop, trot or canter. Maybe needs a change up and more liberal use of the whip but not alerting the stewards.

Results next week I am told./ What do we all think? I am going for sales 24.20 m PBT just over 2 m EPS at 14.5 Giving an historic ratio of 7 I think the delayed contracts will help mitigate the slow down this year with I am going for EPS 13p in current year ratio of 7.8 times. As company has invested heavily I cannot see us getting much of a dividend increase maybe just to 2.8p total. A dividend of 3p would be nice but I doubt it. The shares are not overvalued and as such have not been hit by the market sell off. However my 200p plus target may have to wait for a bid of some more news Tiger

Smallish selling continues unabated. For the past four years, annual results have been released between 21st and 23rd January so another six weeks or so to wait before shareholders should get some information/guidance; happy to sit tight until then.

I am happy with the following, especially ''The contract, valued at over GBP4m, will begin to benefit the second half of the financial year and after a pause will run through to 2023, with an ongoing through-life support contract to 2043.'' More of the same please End of Year Trading Update LPA Group plc ("LPA" or the "Group"), the high reliability LED lighting and electro-mechanical system manufacturer and distributor, reports record output for the year ended 30(th) September 2018 and a major contract win. LPA is pleased to announce record sales in the year ended 30(th) September 2018. Despite a reduction in activity during the final quarter due to the CrossRail delays, results for the full year are expected to achieve market expectations. These delayed CrossRail deliveries will benefit the current financial year, which has started encouragingly with a major contract win. LPA Lighting Systems has been awarded (subject to contract) the upgrade for the lighting on London's Central and Waterloo & City lines rolling stock. The contract, valued at over GBP4m, will begin to benefit the second half of the financial year and after a pause will run through to 2023, with an ongoing through-life support contract to 2043. LPA Connection Systems is bidding on a number of rail projects and have established themselves as a supplier of engineered electro-mechanical solutions for rail vehicles. LPA Connection Systems is launching a new range of aircraft ground power supply products to reinforce its broader customer base. As previously reported, last financial year was exceptionally strong and the current year will see a return to more regular levels of activity, particularly in the first half. Cost structures have been adjusted accordingly. LPA Channel starts the year with a record order book and finished 2018 at a gallop. The LPA Group Employee Benefit Trust has now fulfilled the Company's requirement to purchase a further 150,000 shares in LPA, its holding now totalling 300,000 ordinary shares. Peter Pollock, Chairman, commented "After a blockbuster year of record output, despite contract delays, we face the future with a reinvigorated Board and a refreshed team in place. The rail market remains very buoyant, with huge commitments by Government attracting massive inward investment from multinational companies establishing new rail vehicle assembly facilities in the UK. Our opportunity is to displace their existing suppliers from the supply chain and to participate fully in this potential bonanza. It will be challenging. We have invested heavily in new capacity, automated stores systems, robotic welding, and process robots to improve productivity and to reduce costs so that we can remain competitive in a challenging environment. As has been widely reported, current political uncertainty around Brexit adds a potential challenge and we are progressing our contingency plans in the event of different scenarios."

A 30k (@ 108p) buy trade marked at 16.02 yesterday but reported (L)ate today ..... usual tactics employed by the Market Manipulators.

I agree wholeheartedly. As is usual with small caps, the market can't see beyond the end of its nose and always looks for the negativity in a trading update. A 10k purchase (@ 109.2p) has just shown up which should help things along.

ansc Do you think 8 x earnings with possible upgrades is a high price to pay? Strip out the real assets on the balance sheet and you have a great company for very little. Has to be worth 160/200p on what we currently know tiger

A totally understandable under-whelming market reaction with just 16k shares traded so far, not exactly the trading update I was hoping for; it makes you wonder why the EBT were apparently prepared to pay a price of 110p/share for their recent 150k share purchase. Have decided to stay on board, pinning my hopes on the positive items in the statement rather than the confusing ones.

hastings i think you are looking forward at 2019. Current year eps 14.3p falling to 13.3 in 2019. That s hardly a disaster and for my money we will get upgrades following new contract wins. Also delayed cross rail now falls in 2019. shares look far too cheap to me tiger

The bit i find hard to understand is as follows First half rev was 13.93 and EPS 6.51 so second only 10.07 and EPS still 6.50p One has to be wrong? tiger

It is a bit like driving in fog. Overall i remain a big holder and have bought on weakness. So what do we expect net t/o year just gone and current year? Same with last year EPS v current year. Its almost as if they want to hold the price down. anyone seen a note? tiger

Ha! I stand corrected. FWIW, I bought on the back of the PW in June at 102p and am waiting patiently for a walk, trot or canter to 180p :-)

value hound. as meijiman says they love a gallop here - see below extract from a TU in Sept 2016 which preceded a gallop in the share price although they seem to have fallen at a couple of fences since - "Further to the Chairman's Statement issued with the interim results on 30 June which confirmed that the Group had entered the year at a gallop and that these conditions had continued throughout the first half, LPA is now able to confirm that it is still galloping and that current market expectations for the year as a whole are likely to be exceeded."

I found the RNS totally unclear, with contradictions throughout. At the very least, why isn't there an overall sales figure? At the H1 stage we had a 29% increase in sales, but then a 4% reduction in EPS due to exceptional losses. The share price instantly fell 22% on the day. I guarantee any reader of this announcement will be left unable to form a decent view of the net profit for the year.

Yes they love their racing at LPA. Let's hope the nag keeps galloping rather than slowing to a trot like last time. Overall a decent update IMO.

Will LPA issue a trading update or, more pertinently perhaps, when? Announcement dates over the last four years have been erratic to say the least: last year 1st November; '16 - 27th September; '15 - 2nd November; '14 - 7th October; '13 - none. The Market Manipulators still appear willing to absorb umpteen sells @ 110p. Why? Is this as a result of the EBT announcement at the beginning of last month?

Could explain some of the recent price rise, and note another 150,000 to follow it looks like LPA Group PLC EBT Share Purchase 04/09/2018 10:03am EBT Share Purchase LPA Group PLC ("LPA" or the "Group"), the high reliability LED lighting and electro-mechanical system manufacturer and distributor, announces that, further to the announcement of 3 August 2018, the LPA Employee Benefit Trust (the "EBT") successfully completed its purchase of 150,000 shares representing approximately 1.21% of the Group's issued share capital. The EBT is now seeking to purchase up to a further 150,000 shares in the market with a view to satisfying future option awards, if agreed and when exercised. The EBT has commenced this process, and LPA has agreed a loan to the EBT to facilitate the share purchases to agreed limits.
