Oxford Metrics posted Interim Results for the six months ended 31 March 2023 yesterday. The Group reported record H1 Group revenue of £21.3m, up 69.6% benefitting from buoyant order demand at Vicon. Group adjusted profit before tax was up to £4.1m, there is also clear visibility for another strong year ahead with the order book up to £22.0m (H1 FY22: £13.1m). The Group's balance sheet is very strong with a positive net cash position up to £63.6m as at 31 March 2023 (H1 FY22: £19.6m). Management continue to actively pursue M&A to find the right acquisitions, for the right reasons, at the right price. They also raised guidance for a beat of market expectations in FY23. There is robust growth and high quality here, valuation is the main cloud for the investment case. Forward PE ratio at 27x and PEG at 1.6x are both bottom third for the Software & IT Services sector. The share price also lacks some positive momentum and has been drifting sideways for the best part of 3 years. OMG looks to be a high growth, small cap Tech name worth knowing about for the longer run, but it remains a share to monitor for the time being...

Some chunky trades today, but the price still falls ?

The shares are now 16% lower than when they sold at 110p which was another peak in the sideways-trending graph. So it may well have been the share price rather than the prospects for the business that motivated the timing of the sales.

Two of the sellers - Deacon and Robertson - are 62 and 65 respectively - so maybe taking advantage of share price strength ('institutional demand') to sell before retiring? While they sold the majority of their holding, Bolton who is only 56, only sold 20% of his stake.

So, while co-ordinated sales do raise questions, the reasons given may, on this occasion, be the correct ones.

They have said that potential targets remain too expensive so they have shared their intentions for the cash pile with shareholders. I would rather they accrued interest at, say, 3% - £2m a year - than squandered it on over-paying. I think they have shown, with Yotta, that they have good commercial acumen.

I've been invested here since 2015 and have had few reasons since then to suspect management's motives. They aren't rampy and just get on with the job. The share price is in a long-term upward trend. At the moment, the cash provides solid downside protection while the growing order book suggests that momentum may be building. I could easily see them being acquired at 20 times forecast earnings of, say, 5p plus 50p for the cash - so around 150p.

I think the risk-reward looks good but we will find out more on 6th June

I never like a director sale - even in response to II demand. Against that should be held the fact that they just shifted 2.9M shares and the price held. Are said institutions still buying?

Directors have done well to build up Yotta - perhaps they just feel like they deserve to take some cash and enjoy it? And if that's the case I think we'd say that is entirely reasonable.

I do, however, think it adds ambiguity and on that basis I followed directors and trimmed my holding yesterday, for now at least. Will review following interims which, despite historic second half weighting already discussed, I was left feeling cautious about potential market reaction to.

Just a view.

Would it be so crazy for OMG to tell us that the orders that slipped out of the last financial year have now been shipped and with the record order book we now expect FY23 to be materially ahead of expectations .In FY21 Vicon 27.6m revenue 6.8 PBT Yotta 8.1m revenue 0.8 PBT(Before central costs)Vicon was the far more profitable division , growing at a faster rate in an incredibly hot area . Incredible opportunity presented by what may simply have been a question of a month or two's delay

Well, halfpenny you may yet get your target pull-back price. It's taken four months, an ongoing war, an energy crisis, raging inflation and horrible wider markets. But there is no denying that the share price here has pulled back and that trend has accelerated - albeit it incrementally.

Watching now with interest to time a top-up.

You are clueless, halfpenny. This is a game changer deal with an exit price way in excess of analysts' valuation of the business. It leaves OMG with the much larger, higher margin Vicon and the cash to significantly grow the business via acquisition.

The sale of Yotta will be 90% complete if it has reached the announcement stage, so execution risk is low. Your deductions for CGT and costs look like a wild guess and a poor one at that given that the statement would have talked about 'net proceeds after tax' were they to differ significantly from the gross figure.

You can talk it down all you like, but I am guessing the share price will consolidate around here for a while and head on back to 120p+ if interims are on track towards the end of June.

Just run my numbers some say OMG valuation 95. Still lots to go topping up at next low values..fill ya boots after Profit takers make money today. May fall back to 90p or less as profit takers move in today and take profits!!

Earlier this post stated that some of your numbers suggested 135p and there was plenty of upside left for peeps to pile in. Now another post says you have taken profits, will re-enter below 90p and now 1558 reads valuation at 95p. Its all a bit disingenuous in my view.

Good luck with your top up. I have no idea which way the share price will react in the short term and I was certainly surprised to find myself 20% up so soon on my recent add. I expected the results to be a catalyst for movement (one way or the other) not a Yotta sale. I added on the basis that I see these taking out recent highs at some stage. But I know not when.

Just a view.
