Perhaps he knows something about OXIGs listing that we don't... Looking at the 10 yr share price graph above it is remarkable how volatile this has been.

Sounds like oliversanvil is posting on the wrong board. He talks about all the investors on AIM which has nothing to with OXIG

My query re action group was meant for OliversAnvil. I couldn't follow his post either.

My post was about 'trousering' -the post above I have no knowledge of.In fact I don't quite understand it!!

What annoys me (as a long term shareholder) is that while the board have, as you say, been trousering a large amount of cash, the shareholders have rec'd damn all in terms of dividends. Increases in share price can be here today and, as we have found, gone tomorrow while divs. are in the bank and can be spent. Tell me more about the shareholders'action group; hadn't heard about it. Any link?

OliversAnvil 9 Feb'15 - 18:44 - 10061 of 10061 0 0 edit Indeed i have joined the shareholders' action group. Company engineering administration by a suspect pattern that must be investigated by the law. Of course BLATANTLY the Bods are manoeuvring or are being manoeuvred by (? ) ( maybe who has the train set? ) thinking they are ahead of the law! The wishy washy legal loopholes have to be filled,and i believe a precedent will be set this time once and for ALL investors on the Aim

I did some background checks this morning -but couldn't be bothered posting. Seems like the main people on the board have been in situ for years trousering large amounts of cash whilst the share price has tanked. OK so that's recent -but this company looks like its in need of a shake up.I shall see who the main shareholders are and give it some thought. Looks like this was on a Renishaw,Spirax, Rotork type high rating and then crashed on disappointing news, The ceo has a MBA from Southampton University -time it was put into action!!

I can't say I've ever thought much of the Chairman who appears to be somewhat overpaid.

without management changes the share price will drop further in my view. No support whatsoever. Very poor all round.The Chairman must step up to the plate here.

PE was fancy even for a growth stock. Now that the company is is likely to shrink medium term the PE (21 as I write) is still a bit stretched. Did they overpay for recent camera aquisition? I can never work these things out. but if they did what was supposed to be an asset is suddenly a liability. could have further to fall.

I do not believe that Russia and Japan are the only reasons for poor revenue and profit performance as Russia was only ever 5% of revenue. Japan slow growth is something that should have been factored in. I think that organic growth is low, this in combination with rapid overexpansion means they need to reduce staff and overheads which is usually a viscious circle ....

yes I agree-clearly Japan and Russia are events outside his control but this is not looking great. I have some so I'm not happy but probably didn't do enough DD. This is not even a poor man's Renishaw!

Ok cheers Simon, I think after Investec noted that there was this debt uncertainty I will probably hold my short till it hits 6.00. I think when there is this kind of uncertainty in an R&D firm there is a lot of disruption to development which can cause problems especially if they are going to lay people off. I suspect the 7.00 support will be broken soon.

Koester, I presume if need be, for a cost, they'd change the loan covenants. I was thinking 700p would be support but if there is debt uncertainty then 600p is doable. Think at some point they'll recover due to the underlying quality.

Simon, I am beginning to get the picture, so they many need to do a cash call soon or extend their credit facility either way they seem to be leaking cash .... What is your opinion of the stock? I shorted this after quarter update because I thought the share price is going only one way from a chart point of view. Will need to do more research into this company if I want to hold onto short ...

CEO took a risk buying Andor with bank debt, would have been more sensible to place some shares to cover some of the cost. Interims - 11/14: Balance Sheet At the half year end, net debt was GBP137.5 million (2013: net cash GBP32.2 million). Cash outflow in the period was GBP13.2 million (2013: GBP7.0 million). The Group has total committed facilities of GBP169.5 million. This comprises GBP100 million in the form of a revolving credit facility with a club of banks, a GBP25 million 7 year fixed interest loan with the European Investment Bank which was drawn down in August 2013, and a GBP44.5 million 7 year fixed interest loan from Pricoa which was drawn down in March 2014. The revolving credit facility is extendable to GBP150 million by mutual consent, and expires in December 2018. As calculated under IAS19, the defined benefit pension deficit has increased by GBP8.4 million to GBP54.7 million since 31 March 2014. Since then, assets have increased by 6.8% to GBP209.9 million while liabilities have increased by 8.9% to GBP264.6 million as a result of the decrease in interest rates since the half year end.
