MTC - is now like this Z - On hold in a little pot of wait and see - you might call them dogs. :-)

You were talking to yourself here, so I thought I would pop in and update myself on my old small punt.

clock keeps trolling me like a DOG

Re-hashing old news does nothing, fresh company updates are what is required if there is to be any sign of recovery.

Stop trolling me.

MTC has issued a profit warning and yet you continue to post sh#te on the thread.

Don't lecture me about what i should post on my thread

You're a pathetic dog just like this share.

clocktower - without additional liquidity how do you think the business refinances the loan?

Just approach the banker that holds the deal at 18.2% interest loan and ask them to reduce it?
That's before the next interest rise which since they are blaming "recent " changes one assumes that means its going up.

The loan is Fully Drawn and their cash shrunk by £2.4m in the year - before the impact of the higher interest rates (compounds on higher balance as well).

So if they can find a lower rate loan from elsewhere new lenders will want £m's in arrangement fees and due diligence etc etc. build in some headroom otherwise stricter covenant tests on lower rate might kick in...

they just issue £19m worth of new equity ? At a discount to the current share price that would be >50% of the current shares so massive dilution , do they have the appetite ?

Going back to the "Adjusted" EBITDA what exactly does that mean?
What are the adjustments?
Take them out will there be any Earnings?

Already we know half of even the "adjusted" figure goes in interest.

Then there's the cash they are going to need for pension contributions despite trying to spread the payments over forever...they say £4m next year and £7m the year after so the net debt figure is not lying they are bleeding cash and asking bankers to reduce the interest rate , what a surprise

Let me offer my take on this. fwiw and impo.

This was rocked by the unexpected pull out from Russia and is still shaking from the high interest rates that they could afford in yesterday's world.
They like others, got caught out as did many of their franchisees.

However, that was yesterday. What I believe will happen (and hope) are the only things that they can do. They need to grow and announce new partnerships and credible ones. Especially in the USA. They WILL do that. Possibly with the finals. This will give a boost to their credibility and also the share price. That in turn will give them more fertile ground for remediating the interest charged and paid.

The CEO didn't buy for a quick buck, he bought with a three year+ plan in mind.

Time will tell if I am on track. For now, forget this, just put in a file marked next year!

impo/dyor..........peace to all.

It is questionable why he should have bought before this RNS as I am sure he would have been fully aware of all the figures but if you concentrate on this part of the RNS - it puts the rest into perspective.

I expect the expected operating profit exceeding £10 million is the key -

"Our medium-term guidance is unchanged for the steady state operation in more normal circumstances and we believe our continuing franchise operations remain capable of exceeding GBP10 million operating profit and we are now focused on accelerating our growth in both existing and new markets."

Also if the directors purchased today and came out with top rate news with the next RNS what would some be saying then, if the share price shot up?

It is the subject. The price collapsed from25p to 6p because the Directors unilaterally shutdown its biggest and most profitable market. It is exactly the subject as to why this share price has been destroyed. That it may be uncomfortable for you is not a matter of fact.

Oh dear, I see that clocksucker the Jonah of shares is positive here. Seems there nothing like saying you are running out of cash and need to raise equity to have an impact on the share price huh.

Applied1 the point was that I had not previously (well at least for some time) checked the short position of MTC, and if there had been a much higher percentage of short positions then on the arrival of good news the shorters would likely be rapidly closing their positions, forcing the share price up more quickly that it is likely with such a low percentage.

However, taking the other view there are very few that think that they can make money out of shorting the stock now. It is well known that hedge funds and city bankers often try destroying businesses by creating bad press and selling short to make life even more difficult for the companies, so that these funds etc make fortunes exploiting the weak and vulnerable.

I expect it is now more likely they are the ones now collecting desperate sellers stock or that of board holders stock on the cheap, as the have already seen the level that directors have been buying at and PI’s like On Target and myself have picked up stock at recently.

Clocktower: Ah, I see what you’re saying. I wrongly thought the share price would go through 20p by Xmas, I think I just got my timing slightly wrong. I think the share price will continue to steadily creep up as we head towards the next update. Then the shackles will be off.

Cheers jimmyloser, a lot to look forward to for those with patience - with Boots being one of the winners as shown in the attached link, news should be very positive indeed when released and the beauty of MTC is the international scope along with the huge potential in the USA and recovery in the middle east.

The MTC model leverages the Brand and one of these days there could be a bid as well imo.
Based on the price paid for "BUMP" - this surely must be worth at least three times the current share price
