I've been in and out of this once before. Certainly a well controlled family company. What about a new electric forecourt station in a few years time? What do others think.....no doubt reasonably well positioned to take part. Many new supercharging stations will need building. Not convinced about the defence and forgings businesses, but the petrol stations superstructure and signage business appears to be a better prospect?

Thanks. I undoubtedly wasn't very clear. I think the R&D product development will do them ok for international sales but it will be a struggle. And as you say, defence spending could suddenly and 'unfortunately' rise at any time which would be an upside for these shares if nothing else. cheers

Thanks for that. Agree that the outlook for defence spending doesnt seem bright but, unfortunately, that can change all too quickly.

ROCE and Margin have nose-dived due to the fall in orders for the MSI cannon, the mainstay of the defence division and the product that earns the big margins for the company. Product Development has been made - but the RN is suffering huge cuts and in order to keep it's carriers (see what I did there? The word aircraft doesn't seem appropriate in front of these carriers) and their missile toting submarines orders for the MSI product have been continuously postponed. They may succeed longterm in selling abroad and if they do I think they will be better off long term than relying upon the UK MOD, which looks to be short of cash for a good while yet. There are promising signs in the other divisions as well - not least the explosive growth in the newly acquired petrol signs division on the back of one very large contract - but I remain to be convinced this is sustainable. In the meantime any investment needs to be made on the basis that this is a family controlled business where the family comes first. cheers

Having an initial look. Roce of 18.8, 14.5, 22.2 and 26.0 for 4 years in a row now 9.1, 4.8, 5.0, 4.7 for last 4 years. Op margin 8.4, 8.3, 11.8, 15.4 now 6.8, 3.8, 3.8, 3.3. Have these deteriorated due to a period of investment? Is that coming to an end? The div has just been increased marginally which has got me interested as they have aggressively increased it in the past. They also sold some property valued at 45k in the books at 115k and have 19m of property, plant and equipment. Anyone any insight re the breakdown of this and how likely any value could be realised here?

I have been a long term shareholder in this stock. I have become increasingly disalusioned with the the chairman and the board milking the profits. This is a an owner dominated company with no interest in their, non board member, share holders. The Defence Systems devision appears to carry the other divisions and the board shareholders but the gun technology will be overtaken by laser technology and they will be left with scrabbling around the world for small gun contracts with third world countries and rogue states. I give them a maximum of 10 years. The Petrol Signs was a very good buy as it has the potential to diversify into other sineage areas but Forgings just chugs along. Forecourts, has a life of about 20 years, enough to see out all but the Chairman’s son on the Board. In the future we will not be powering up our betteries for 30 mins at a ‘petrol’ station. Short journey, local, forms of transport vehicles will charge up at home and at work. Heavy vehicles and those used for distances of over 200 miles will use hydrogen from the equivalent of the current ‘petrol’ stations but eventually we will have electrolysers built into our homes powered by solar panel electricity. Indeed eventually we could do away with conventional central heating and plug in our cars to provide the electricity to light, heat, and power our houses. I have now sold out of MSI and this is my first and last post on this thread. I am trying to come to terms with my complacency and lack of attention to what has been happening with this company but with a big sigh I am moving on.

Well that has left me even more confused as to whether to buy or not! I need to get in to the accounts to see if they have any property assets but on face value trading just above nav ignoring goodwill and the manageable pension deficit? Div maintained last few years despite cash pile but falling cover as eps falling. I would like to see some broker forecasts/comment but tempting all the same if they are back on track to increase ROCE. I would have thought defence spending picking up again but no idea what that means to MSI.

Yes, I think Michael Bell is also 71, Michael O'Connell is 68 and Nicholas Bell (Michael's Son?) is 39. All on chunky (for Doncaster!!) salaries. Interesting though that John Lee is back onboard as he knows the company really well.

Seems we have a keen seller in the market as we approach the interims which should be announced in the next few weeks. On the basis that they don't know something we don't, I'm treating it as a potential opportunity to top up but prepared to bide my time as the seller currently seems prepared to sell below the quoted bid price.

This is an interesting company in which I have built up a holding over the last few months.The Directors of this business are a canny lot who are not really interested in communicating with the Stockmarket other than at the appointed times.They are more interested in building up and running an efficient operation and I cannot blame them for that.The recent Director share purchases were interesting and I get the impression that at some stage over the next year or so the company could be firing on all cylinders.That would indicate a significant increase in profitability and a proportionate increase in the share price which has gone nowhere for a very long time.Every well run dog has its day.

They specialize in the canopies but do all the forecourt superstructure work Global-MSI is a substantial business with an excellent pedigree and enviable long-standing reputation as a specialist in the design, manufacture and construction of petrol station forecourt superstructures, that includes convenience stores, canopies, retail, food & refreshment outlets and car wash buildings.
