It's encouraging that the MSI 30mm cannon is being considered for a very long lead time design - talking about entering service in 2038!

Of the current production of Coast Guard Cutters my understanding is that MSI is designed into the Polar Security Cutter but the legacy BAE 25mm Mod 38 Mk3 is still being specified for the conventional UCGC's. Hopefully the MSI Mk38 Mod 4's will be spec'd on the later of the current crop of UCGC's.

The BAE system is cheaper but far less effective as the 30mm x 173mm ammunition (now available in air burst & proximity) has greater range and increased CUAS capability.

I agree the more I look at MSI it is a fine balance with wanting management to concentrate on the business and not PR grabbing like some, but a little more detail would be appreciated. There is no doubt the defence division contracts won in the last year have been astounding. Based on the profile of the board and recent shareholding announcements with current valuation I see this as a prime takeover target.

Excellent work NC.

This part is really interesting;

"The International Guns, Missiles and Rockets Project Team, part of the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) intends to award a 5-year contract to MSI Defence Systems Ltd (MSI-DSL) for Contracting for Availability (CfA) services for the 30mm Gun System across the Naval fleet from June 2024.

It is considered that the award of the contract without prior publication of a contract notice in the UK notification service is lawful under Regulation 16 (1) (a)(ii) of the Defence and Security Public Contracts Regulations 2011 on the grounds of the following technical reasons.

i. MSI-DSL are the OEM and Design Authority for the in-service 30mm Gunnery Systems and;

ii. have proven technical proficiency to resolve the growing obsolescence issues and;

iii. have a number of capability improvement options at a high level of technical readiness which could be embodied immediately and;

iv. as a result are the only supplier who could concurrently and efficiently manage both the ongoing in-service support and critical obsolescence resolution at a high TRL to prevent operational defects and degraded operational capability to the Fleet."

Have just read the last 200+ posts.

Obviously the defence division is key for MSI and there are several people posting here with considerable expertise of the company.

Given that MSI is a miniscule company when compared with competitors such as BA., do you see the defence success as sustainable or something which larger peers will quickly emulate. Presumably MSI are more entreprenarial and fleet of foot which will help against very bureaucratic competitors.... ....albeit they may just try to buy the defence divsion.

MSI seem to be in a real sweet spot with what they are doing defence wise so what might that mean in EPS terms 3 to 5 years out?

@Norbert, appreciate that you are the resident expert here, however I came to a different conclusion after some digging. I don't see how MSI could RNS a signed £22.4m contract 2 months before the first IFU was announced?

"The first IFU package was announced on 15 February 2023: Ukraine to receive multi-million pound capability boost from international fund. First deliveries from this package have now arrived in country."

The previous IFU appears to have been this one announced on 13th June;

That would line up with the 22nd June MSI snippet re. the £54m order received that was snuck out in the full year results. It would also explain why the UK Gov have name dropped MSI & Terrahawk Paladin (generating a lot of publicity on Twitter), as £54m is the vast majority of the £70m quoted...

Re. the new £100m fund, it looks to be related to mine clearance rather than air defence, as per the below extract from Shapps;

"and more than £100 million of new equipment pledged to give Ukrainian soldiers what they need to breach Russia’s deadly minefields."

I certainly see an asymmetric response between the share price reaction to the initial VSHORAD contract of £22.4m (up £3) to the subsequent modest rise in view of the multiple most recent contracts announced ie the 2nd VSHORAD contract of £54m and the 3 US Naval contracts which confirm MSI is embedded into the US Naval program for 5+ years.

The results in December could provide the step change in financial results Michael Bell has been alluding to.

Telling that Michael O'Connell today exercised options and chose not to sell shares to pay the tax (again!!).

Biggest share volume I can recall in MSI yesterday since the institutional seller four years ago.New record share price on high volume is what many astute investors seek.

Yes the 30mm canons are NG, I suspect they may be supplied to Rock Hill rather than Norwich. Excellent relationship with MSI (note speed of delivery to MSI for the initial VSHORAD contract) I suspect the cost was contained within Fridays $22m as with the $29m for the optical sensors you're at around the $3.25m Mk38 Mod 4 unit price.

MSI remains tricky. It seems to have potential to be a 150-200m turnover biz with decent margins and a share price 100% higher. But if the big defence stuff doesn´t come through regularly could be a bit hit and miss.

MSI always makes me go hmmmmmm......!
