illiswilgig: 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
emptyend: 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.
lendacoit: 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!
interceptor2: 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.
gfrae: 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 !
royaloak: 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?
mr. t: 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.
thorne3: One has to recognise that MSI is essentially a private company with a listing.That said one can be assured that shareholders will be well taken care of in the medium term even if the lack of newsflow and failure to communicate with shareholders in the short term can be very annoying.The Board is made up of a very sound bunch of individuals and there could be some fairly rich pickings here for investors in due course.In the short term don't be taken in by the high level of cash on board as much of this relates to up front deposits from customers on the naval gun side of the business as stated in the Group accounts.Having said that I consider MSI to be a little jewel to be held in the longer term to see how things unfold.
tiswas: Blimey, even asking a question moves the price! 😆
mr. t: Bought some too. Used to own msi a few years back. A nicely run, low key business...with websites that would have looked dated in the 1990s.Can be cyclical but looks like on a nice upward path for now. A low valuation, especially if you strip out cash.
