You are right zoolook, I can confirm that I was happy with the results and also that I have a hangover after the cricket. Making friends with the guy in the seat next to me, who brought in the Veueve Cliquot, was also a master stroke. The point about them being more "investor friendly" is also true...I think they have taken investor criticism on board...are certainly more engaging and proactive than was the case a year ago...and thought the RNS today was very clear and honest, while directly confronting some of the criticisms we had. Profit number was a little better than I expected, cash generation excellent. The sales and margin % both good...and ordinarily we might have hoped for a better increase in Profit given the Sales/Margin performance. Clearly much of the benefit has flowed through into divisional bonuses...and again they explain this honestly, as the major reason why Admin costs increased by £1.3m. This "bonus" cost is now in the base numbers...and at least we can hope/expect we would save money on this line if trading was more difficult..and it therefore forms something of a "buffer" to maintain profits.

You’d think so. I’ve filled up this morning. The tone of the statement was far more open and investor friendly. The good results and a change in attitude/culture should be a trigger for that sort of rise. Liked that they had adopted an way to finding new acquisitions too suggesting a generally more proactive attitude.

Very decent results, reassuring/positive update, and scope for acquisitions and to grow profitability, but also not overpromising given Brexit and nature of industry visibility etc. Hardly surprising. Look forward to the big div to come and hopefully a positive trading update before the next figures. And so cheap, surely someone might run the slide rule over ntbr itself at some point.

It looks like the business continues to progress and they want to increase cash balances to help with further acquisitions.

I agree...I think Kier is a high risk decent punt at these levels.

Kier won't go bust. Because the situation with Kier is different than Carillion and Interserve as Kier are making profits unlike Carillion and Interserve. So, even in the worse possible case the bond holders will do a debt for equity swap to wipe out most of the debt. Sharesholders may get punished but the company will continue and creditors will get paid. Having said that the share price of a quid on Kier is telling us something. They need to raise some cash by selling some assets. I know they have sold some parcels of land for £25m and if they raised £100m things would look very different. The share price is artificially low on Kier as St. James Place and Woodford are selling out due to Woodford deciding to now only hold FTSE100+FTSE250 and Woodford being removed as the portfolio manager at St. James who have a rule only FTSE100+FTSE250. I expect the share price at Kier will bounce once St. James have finished selling.

A little bit of buying in the run up to results next week. IMO massively undervalued on fundamentals but company doesn't help with poor / non-existent communication..... One lives in hope that this may change.................

Well kier are alive and kicking for now so there won’t be any releases unless kier does goes pop . I am not saying that will happen, it’s just some idle speculation that it could in theory be an issue. Kier owe out 1.5 billion in total so someone must be on the hook for material amounts if they do go pop.

Are you aware of any other companies that have announced exposure to Keir ?Can you name them ?Not sure how timing works ... but if others have announced ... and NTBR hasn't ... then i'm hoping they have no exposureIf no one else has announced ... is they actually any exposure to be worried about ?As i recall ... no exposure to Carillion ... but until NTBR said there wasn't any ... there was still speculation there was exposureI continue to take reassurance that no news is good news ... as it has been for the last 3-4 years ...

I wander if NTBR may have a material exposure to Kier - this could perhaps explain some of the shareprice weakness without the company really being obliged to say owt. The kier financials are starting to make them look like they may go the way of Carillion if they don't get their act together - they have gone as far as saying their suppliers are finding it hard to get credit cover now - and it doesn't look like they are decent payers ( they only split payables between under 1 year and over 1 year on their annual report !!!). Thankfully my local council (North tyneside) have just ditched Kier and taken the work back in house so hopefully if NTBR are reasonably on the ball any such exposure can be managed to be minimised within reason now its flagged up that offering credit to Kier is probably only sensible for a madman or where the exposure is so small as to be worth the risk factoring in the profits their business will bring in.

So long as they engage with shareholders, do an AGM at a reasonable time of day and ideally not always in Newcastle and provide presentations at results for those interested then there will be little to complain about. The dividend should help put a valuation on the company as investors will seek a good income.

Thanks tiswas, it was good to hear management showed "openness and willingness to engage" the minimal cost of piworld suggested by sharw may appeal to them as a means of communication.I am just glad they are careful with the shareholders money.
