Yes but screwing up like that is simply not acceptable for a National investment magazine that specialises in giving "hot tips" backed up with top quality research. They cant have it both ways. In his recommendation of MMC ST makes it clear he has gone to great lengths to satisfy himself and the readers that he has turned every stone and that this is a fantastic bargain poss the greatest ever. This is what he basically states. If it turns out he missed a pension deficit ? something that would be in the top 5 things to look at when doing due diligence then where does that leave all his readers and followers ? Such a publication would be taken to the cleaners surely ? Or as I say is ST correct and there is no pension deficit etc ? Do you have any info for this pension deficit ?

And if ST did make a ricketts of it will the IC be compensating all its readers to whom it boasted and boasted to regarding this up and coming and now with us 2017 Bargain Portfolio. Will it apologise and compensate if it has made gross and glaring errors in its article ? I mean you cant be an Investment specialist magazine claiming to be jam packed full of top info and advice for your readers if you lead them up blind alleys and cost them a fortune due to your magazines negligence and incompetence. Surely such a magazine would find itself in court ? Or as is perhaps the case ST missed nothing and stands by every single word in his buy recc for MMC

So is Richard Griffiths wrong and he doesn't know all of this? and is buying up all the shares he can without realising he is making a big mistake ? Or is he on the ball and knows exactly why he is buying up every share he can in the market ? Must be one of the two ?

Simon gives a "pro forma nav" here of £76.4m Does that include intangibles of £47m if it does and you subtract the 47m, that leaves a tangible NAV estimate of 29.4m or just 5.8p per share please corrrect me if wrong

So it's back to Alexander Proudfoot: anyone remember the late 1980's when Proudfoot was a roaring Christopher Mills' shell reverse takeover and Lord Stevens of Ludgate (as he is nowadays), chairman? Seem to recall the stock was 300p or better; quite representing the top of the market, before the October 1987 crash. Since then they have obviously gone round in circles and blown shareholder value, but some people got paid very nicely. Perennial dilemma with Proudfoot bid speculation is short revenue visibility (clients' productivity improvement projects being relatively one-off) and the assets being flighty executives.

IC Bargain Portfolio tip for 2017 "This means that effectively Management Consulting received an extra £9.6m of cash proceeds after accounting for transaction fees, non-recurring costs and tax expenses. So, after factoring in all of the disposals made since the end of June last year, I calculate that the company’s pro-forma NAV is around £76.4m, of which net funds account for £62.3m. That cash pile is worth 12.3p a share, or double the current share price. Bearing this in mind, with the company capitalised at just £33m, over 80 per cent of the fixed assets worth £53.5m are in the price for free, albeit these include £47m of intangible assets. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if predators started sniffing around given the value on offer here. Buy." ST thinks a predator will buy them out soon.

Yes but is it the bargain that Simon portrays when you factor in the pension deficit ? Can't just look at cash and ignore the liabilities

Don't know but not complaining. Maybe they're going to sell Proudfoot.

Circular with proforma b/s is here FYI hxxp://www.mcgplc.com/pdf/circular-and-notice-of-general-meeting-2016.pdf Net cur assets £32m indeed strong vs market cap £26m, but pension liability £17.6m, ongoing losses, and wind down costs of KS business to consider. I find it kind of interesting at this price but think I want to see evidence of turnaround of AP.
