LONDON (Thomson Financial) - Management Consulting Group PLC reported higher pretax profits for the first half helped by a 49 pct jump in sales, and said it is confident for the future backed by a solid order book. The company's first-half pretax profit rose to 7.47 mln stg from 7.32 mln stg in 2006 as revenues surged to 100.5 mln stg from 67.3 mln stg. Profit from operations before non-recurring items and amortisation rose 55 pct to 10.2 mln stg. Selling and underlying administrative costs increased due to the acquisitions of Ineum and Salzer, leading to one-off integration costs of 1.3 mln stg. The remaining non-recurring costs to be incurred in the second half will be less than 0.5 mln stg, Management Consulting said. The company added that Ineum Consulting, which is now completely integrated with the group, performed robustly ahead of its expectations and is clearly earnings enhancing. Looking ahead, the company said the current order book on a like-for-like basis is significantly higher in both Ineum Consulting and Proudfoot Consulting and marginally higher in Parson Consulting. The pipelines of work are good, it added. Management Consulting set an interim dividend of 0.33 pence a share.

Do we have any idea what the expectations are? If anyone tells me 'positive and it's in the price'....my sides will surely split!

MMC been creeping up slowly....$ must be hurting them, but 1/2 year just ended and have not seen any downward movements in forecasts so assuming IMO that this still looks very cheap. Opinions?

If they do, they conceal it well. Jeez this is a corpse. Still got 50% of my original stake and would love a brief rise to unload it!

Daily Mail article today:- 'Hungry private equity groups have got their eyes on Management Consulting group, at 49p. Leading shareholders of the struggling support services group, who are said to be miffed at recent underperformance, are rumoured to have been asked to name a price for their stake. One is believed to be ready to accept 64p a share. If true, a full scale offer would soon follow. Candover and 3i are two names in the frame'.

Ah ha! I reckon poor visibility of earnings - short-term contracts the norm - is why this company is lowly rated.

ADVFN have the no. of shares in issue at 189.79m whereas the company announced shares in issue of 271,100,804 on 30th April 2007. I was wondering why the market capitisation at £95m was so low! £135m is a bit more like it - but still very reasonably valued at 10x 2006 PBT. The share price has significantly underperformed the FTSE All Share Index over the last 5 years (see page 40 of the 2006 annual report). Anyone know the reasons?

QS9 - It's not a case of it being strong now - it's more a case of it having been exceptionally weak and moving toward it's true valuation.

Looking very strong recently, anyone got thoughts on why the sudden pick up? Does look cheap IMO on fundamentals alone but no newsflow for a while expected??

Yup - I have to travel to Bristol for a shareclub once a month. Worth it though - great bunch of guys! MMC starting to climb - 58p is my breakeven for this tranche. Bought when I was new and naive! The lot I sold I bought for 41p so I'm technically up either way. Been a long old haul though!
