The results were indeed excellent, however, the company is uncertain about its future prospects- see below, this probably explains the share price drop along with general market volatility. However, the very low P/E of 5.5 means I will hold for the moment. "The company said it expects to show good growth in first-half revenue but that it will continue to review whether or not the challenging economic conditions prevalent in the US will adversely affect business during the second half. Group Finance Director, Craig Smith, told Thomson Financial News in an interview that the group has about three to four months of visibility in its order book and hence cannot see into the second half of the year. He added that since 40 pct of its business is dependent on the US, MCG has to take into consideration the bleak outlook everyone is painting, although the company hasn't seen a slowdown yet."

Excellent results but predictably the shares are down - what a depressing market.

Market likes it. P/e of 5 for Dec 08 on current forecasts from what I can see, decent yield, profits forecast of £20m+.......better relationship with city and no reason these should not be rated on 10 times at least which suggests IMO a much much higher price....am holding now for 6 months to see how far the institutions who have nudged board out take this....

QS9...like all the best humour there is a strong element of truth in your opening words...this company has been a puzzle to me for a while now...such potential yet not achieving any stockmarket recognition...maybe now we shall (gradually?) see a useful double whammy of improving bottom line and a useful rerating too... If so, 55p plus should be well in sight even in current stockmarket conditions. Good luck all!

Employ someone on half the salary and they will already have materially altered the profit profile......one a serious note, this can only IMO be positive for the share price given the extremely low rating involved here.

It was meant as a sarcastic comment on the low sp, considering the eps. The historical average PE ratio for the whole market is around 15, so a PE of 6 is low.

Not a bad statement. Revenue up strongly, but EPS only by a modicum. The shares are cheap and the dollar has strengthened since these results.

Isn't trading update due next week? If CEO under pressure externally, he needs to put in a bullish update IMO if he is to survive the pressure! Lets see.

It looks like Gartmore Investment Limited are increasing the pressure on Mr Parry's shoulders.

Is the stated reason the real reason?? Seems just a difference of opinion on a specific deal. There are many cases where shareholders have doubts about particular deals, but they don't usually call an EGM in response. Changing the management is not going to undo or reverse the deal.

January 12, 2008 Snapped up and consolidated is the aim Small caps Management Consulting, the group that aims to snap up and consolidate global management advisory firms, edged up ½p to 35½p on hopes that a shareholder rebellion would oust its chief executive Kevin Parry. After the close on Thursday the company revealed it had received notice from shareholders led by Gartmore Investments, with 12.5 per cent, requisitioning a meeting to remove Mr Parry. The rebels believe he overpaid for KSA, an American company acquired in October, and the shares have fallen from 51p since the deal.
