WestofEngland - Thank you, that's a very reassuring view from the AGM, much appreciated. To be clear - I hold, and had also recently added more above 200p. I will let the dust settle and will most likely add some more, cheers

2,430 sounds like a decent risk/reward ratio for a long-term hold....

there are a few things to be wary of - some of which help to explain the odd communications from the board The board doesn't really do corporate governance. Michael Bell is the executive chairman and Nicholas Bell is on the board. The rest of the board is over 70 and has been associated with the company for a long time. David Hansell (md of MSI defence since 2002) joined the company in 1962 apparently. The directors and related parties own 54% of the shares. - so it is essentially a family controlled business - Cavendish Asset management own a further 17.5%. No other holdings declared above 3%. The directors pay themselves handomely. Directors emouluments were 1.6M - thats about half the size of the profits. As the directors and family control the business - there is no way to address this issue. If you are not happy with this - do not invest. Having said that - family controlled businesses are not necessarily a bad thing. They tend to look longer term than other companies - but sometimes with the result that there can be more short term pain! This company is cash rich and its petrol station superstructures and branding businesses have been/are doing well. The defence business is in a downturn (thanks to the UK overspending upon vanity big ships and submarines leaving little business for MSI products) but if and when then R&D for the redeveloped products pays off this business can be immensely profitable. cheers

Its a solid business; I attended the AGM in July. I subsequently bought more shares. They said then that 'we live in interesting times'. I have since bought more shares above 200p. I think the business is fine and entrepreneurial. Topvest is right that they are old fashioned- I think it may well be a very good return business. If I have spare funds, I may add at these levels.

I suspect that they don't really care what you think. If you prefer perfumed words this co. is not for you.

It's just their style. They are quite negative even when the results are excellent. It's on my watch list. A very well run old fashioned group, but not really a high return business.

For some reason this share made it on to my "long list" of possible investments some while ago and I've taken a brief look this morning after the dip.I'm sorry to say that I've now removed it from my long list, purely because of the tone of recent management statements. In particular, the narrative introducing the annual results, coupled with today's excuses, is extremely offputting. The board should get better advice or more circumspect management.

I'm contemplating buying into the share as most parameters seem OK. However, what makes me hesitate is- with the impending disruption of EVs what future does it have in its petrol station division? Won't this be a drag on the SP? Probably the downbeat comments are a precursor to a profit warning!

- strong economic franchises - market leading superstructure builder - unique naval guns - recognised leader in petrol station branding - strong customer relationships - experienced managers with in-depth knowledge of engineering industries Looks like a solid long term stock to have in one's portfolio, so 3,333 might be a good starting point...

I did sell my small holdings here at the open and very surprised to see the share price rebound today, The outlook statement certainly read like a profit warning and feels like they are preparing the ground for a weaker new financial year. Hope I am wrong for shareholders here but I felt very uncomfortable holding such an illiquid share after reading the results and was very relieved to have sold at a better price then anticipated.

The company has the luxury of being able to talk calmly about the economy,prospects etc as it sees them, because it does not care what it's share price is. Not many companies can afford to be downbeat !

Normally a problem going private, but I had a good experience with HNN going private, see the thread, so after an initial mark down may not be so bad if MSI follow the same route?

I wonder if the downbeat comments were with a view to taking it private. Not sure what they would offer shareholders and whether it is worth the wait. Cannot see much else putting a rocket under the share price

Interest received 93 51 Interest paid (116) 82) Seems a bit odd for such large cash balances

Interesting results. EPS would have been 29p but still 23p even with pension equalisation payment. Net cash up to £23m.

from the interim statement 'At 28th April, 2018, an impairment provision of £615,000, relating to the uncertainty of the recovery of certain indirect taxes due to the Petrol Station Branding division, was made. Following the resolution, with the relevant authorities, of the uncertainty the impairment provision of £615,000 was released at 27th October, 2018.' This surely implies that these interim figures - which cover the six months up to 27th October - have been flattered by the reversal of a provision for the same amount taken in the second half of last year? Don't we need to adjust expectations for that?

MSI had some pr about exhibiting a new naval gun back in Feb too. I'd have thought the weak GBP is good for business.

A browse through their website is quite interesting. The forecourt division in particular looks to have been busy in the second half of the year: hTTp://global-msi.com/news-2/ Looking forward to the results on Monday or early next week latest.

Ah - very interesting. I had missed the statement of accruals in note 22 to the 2018 account - which I guess is the statement you refer to as I can't see an explicit statement of prepayments anywhere. Thank you for that - it does change the picture somewhat. cheers
