cac86: Just watched the results presentation. Have to say that I thought Palser was fine but Tenner came across as arrogant and superior. Easy to identify issues but harder to fix them but of course he is walking away. Despite the positive share price move, EBIT margins are still significantly below 2016 (and prior), and it looks like they are only looking for small increases in margin over the next two years, but then spending them on "investments". Debtors and accrued income have not really moved materially and staff turnover is worse than last year, both Stone and Tenner ridiculed these in last years presentation. My view is 2017 was sandbagged by Tenner and that in light of that, this years results are poor and that little real progress has been made. I am looking to sell.

andrewbaker: Yep, impressive share price jump today, but not fully justified, IMHO. So they are back in profit after a loss last year, and have a new finance director; but so what? Work reviews on NCC are mixed, and not that good. Management don't seem to be as good as perhaps one would like. They are in a growing field of business but have plenty of competition. I said last month, I sold a chunk at a profit, and kept some, as much for a takeover as anything else. On balance, I'm staying with that. If the price drops back below say, 200p, I may buy a few back: but I'm not going to rush in at this time. Maybe other holders may want to take some profits on today's rise (or trim losses/exposure)?

lizard370: With the appointment of Jennifer Duvalier in April as nob-exec, who's expertise is in people & culture strategies, I'd hope the internal issues would improve. Preliminary results tomorrow will give us an indication, we need some positive news if this share is to get out of the doldrums.I am a long term holder here and dismayed by the downward 'progress' of the share price. Recent board appointments have not impressed so far and the sudden departure of the CFO is worrying.

boozey: Maybe, and I am not one of those, but a CFO quitting is a red flag - and the share price invariably falls after announcement. NCC is no exception to this rule. There is no smoke without fire and the real life boardroom incompetence and subsequent shake ups at NCC are all long since in the public domain. The question is whether we have seen the last of it - on last week's evidence obviously not. It takes a very special Board of Directors to make such a mess of a company in the hottest of hot industries. How such people get employed in the first place at such a senior level is beyond me. You could put a bunch of A level Business Studies students in their place and they would make a far better job of it.

boozey: For a company in the fastest growing of industries NCC seem to score endless own goals and undermine investor confidence. Recent business performance has been a shambles and a reflection of a chaotic boardroom. A CFO leaving unexpectedly is never a good sign and a reduction in share price today is an inevitable result. Too many egos on the Board and not enough men or women of substance.

jerseyman1: markth I understand that Sophos serve a different segment of the cyber security market to NCC, and that NCC are in the main more reliant on selling expensive consultants hours rather than standard solutions as per Sophos. However Sophos wouldn't be the first company to take over a company in the same sector with a view to improving its services offering whilst also believing it could shift more standard solutions to the acquiree's customer base. It would also probably be a welcome move in the City with them claiming to be diversifying their income stream in a rapidly growing market, particularly following the share price fall in Feb which looks like it was due slowing standard product billings in the second half of their financial year, despite confirmed profit guidance for full year. It's also four plus times the size of NCC's market capitalisation so a deal could easily be accommodated.

rivaldo: Peel Hunt reiterate their Buy and 275p target: Http://investing.thisismoney.co.uk/broker-views/ And the respected Techmarketview are positive - I agree with them that today's report sees good progress overall by NCC. Hopefully the next period's results will see continuing increased revenues as against largely stable costs of expansion as flagged today. The planned disposal could give the share price a lift when it happens: Http://www.techmarketview.com/ukhotviews/archive/2018/01/16/resurgent-ncc-group-grows-h1-revenue-4 Extract: "Tuesday 16 January 2018 Resurgent NCC Group grows H1 revenue 4% .....All in all we think NCC is now making good progress after its poor performance last year (subscribers to our SecureConnectViews research stream can access our Cyber Security Supplier Prospects 2018 report here) but much will depend on how well demand for its core cyber security and business continuity services holds up over the next 12 months."

markth: NSL, the company he came from, is a vanilla outsourcing outfit with no cyber offering. From LinkedIn, this chap's a chemist to trade, who moved roles six times in ten years while at QQ. His most recent move from being a Managing Director into Business Development looks worthy of a question at the shareholder meeting (for those still holding). I don't see any "wealth of business experience" ... "track record of success" ... "in the ... cyber security sector...". Nor do I see any compelling reason to take it on trust that "NCC will flourish under his leadership". He does have experience of selling a business, which might prove useful. However if someone was going to come in for NCC they surely would have done so when the share price was in the toilet several months back, rather than now. In summary, I can't see why the City are in favour, it's possible they know something I don't, but the share price trend is downwards since his appointment and that's why I'm out.

tonysss13: IN THE KNOW: New Profit Warning Could Put NCC In Play - Shore [22-February-2017] Sam Unsted LONDON (Alliance News) - NCC Group could become a takeover target or indeed put itself up for sale following its latest profit warning, a statement which suggests a serious slowdown for its Assurance arm in recent weeks, analysts said. Shares in NCC were down 26% at 93.25 pence Wednesday morning. On Tuesday, NCC issued another profit warning for its current financial year and said it has initiated a strategic review of the business, which will include a review of its Assurance arm. NCC - which provides software escrow and verification, cyber security consulting and managed services - said trading in its Assurance arm in the year to the end of May will be "significantly lower" than it had previously anticipated. Due to this, NCC said its adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation for the year will be around 20% lower than the GBP45.5 million to GBP47.5 million range it provided in December, which had already been downgraded. In light of the deteriorating trading, NCC said it will initiated a review of its business and will closely consider its Assurance arm, with regards to how it operates and how it sells its products. The review will also consider how NCC can better use its assets and resources across the business. In light of its "seemingly comforting" interim results in January, Shore Capital's Robin Speakman and Ben McSkelly said the warning from NCC on Tuesday suggests a "severe drop-off" in the performance of the Assurance division. "Given the strategic position that NCC holds in the provision of IT Assurance and security services, where we believe long term demand continues to grow, we believe that NCC should be regarded as potentially being in play," the analysts said, suggesting NCC may become a takeover target following the battering it shares have taken. The analysts reckon the position of NCC Chief Executive Rob Cotton will now come under "heavy scrutiny" and that the strategic review may well see a sale or break-up of the group considered. Shore downgraded NCC to Hold from Buy. N+1 Singer analyst Oliver Knott said an "extended period of uncertainty" is now on the horizon for NCC, which will "make it hard for investors to gain confidence" in the company in the short term. Yet, Knott said he sees "fundamental value" in NCC stock. The company's Escrow arm is not impacted by the warning and, at the current share price, its Assurance arm trades at only 5 times calendarised 2017 earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation. Still, while this looks like an attractive multiple for a "rare cybersecurity asset", Knott said he will await more clarity on the underlying nature of the issues NCC faces. He kept his recommendation on NCC at Hold with an unchanged 138p price target.

masurenguy: smokybenchod - 610: Seconduser that news is for ncc the Swedish construction company What complete and utter nonsense ! The MF article referenced in post #609 above is about this company and not some random Swedish construction company. NCC Group After rising from 200p to 370p in the last 18 months, NCC Group’s share price plummeted back to the 200p level recently on the back of its four-month trading announcement this month. The company warned of setbacks including the cancellation of three major contracts and difficulties with services contract renewals. Management said the cancellations were unrelated and that profit expectations for the year remained “in line with the board’s expectations.” However, the market clearly wasn’t convinced and NCC’s share price fell 35% in the blink of an eye. After several years of strong revenue and earnings growth, there’s no doubt NCC Group was priced for perfection. Revenues had grown from £88m in FY2012 to £209m in FY2016, CAGR of a stunning 24%, and as a result, at a share price of 370p, NCC Group was trading on a lofty P/E ratio of 32 times FY2016 earnings. That left little room for error and after warning of setbacks, sentiment towards the company has clearly deteriorated. As a shareholder, it’s extremely frustrating to see NCC Group fall 45%, however I believe there’s a lot more to come from the cyber security specialist over the long term and as such, I won’t be selling my shares. One thing I’ve learnt from investing in smaller companies than the FTSE giants is that the ride often isn’t smooth. Growth can be lumpy and acquisitions can take time to integrate. However NCC Group is operating in a fast growing industry and I believe the fundamental outlook for the company remains strong. Group revenues for the four months increased by 36% to £79.6m including organic growth of 21% and forward order books and renewals stood at £108.8m, up from £71.9m this time last year. With city analysts forecasting earnings per share of 12.8p for FY2017, NCC’s forecast P/E ratio is now just 15.6 which I believe is a steal for a company with NCC’s growth prospects.
