A very decent set of results today. Makes you wonder what the fuss was about at the end of last year. On an historic basis the PE is 15 and the yield 4%. Thats about fair value I would say. The performance of the acquisition looks poor looking at year on year profit although the one off payment to the MD won't be repeated. This year there will be £0.5m additional sales cost without impact on the top line but with £10.1m profit that seems OK. Possibly a boring but stable year ahead and something slightly more optomistic for 2008. I think we will trade in a range between £2.50 and £3.00 which is OK while you pick up the 4% dividend. Glad I didn't sell earlier as I was sorely tempted to do and happy to hold for a bit longer.

Well, we are back to where we were before the profit warning. Are you back in, TopV?

I sold mine first thing this morning. I didn't really like the Berkeley Morgan acquisition and this profit warning was the last straw. Still a good company, but I bought at 93p and so silly to hang in there now. The compelling growth story seems to have disappeared, at least for the time being.

Still getting cheaper - and on very small volumes. I wonder when the directors will start buying. The bounce could be very sharp if someone wants 100k or so. mct

"In the short term the cost of this investment programme and other trading activities may reduce profits for the full year to 31 December 2006 by up to approximately £0.5 million from those currently forecast by the market." this in the afternoon. Seems to me that they were forced into this!

This statement in the interims "As I mentioned earlier, new business production from our work site team has not reached the record levels experienced in 2005. Renewals continue as expected and other divisions, particularly our employer paid employee benefit business, have done well, keeping current trading in line with directors' expectations." then....

Somewhat confused about todays announcements - a trading statement put out on the same day as the interims - all very odd!

Their core market has changed considerably and I should know as my company regularly competes against PGH. Gone are the days when you can just walk in to an employee group and sell protection products to staff. If they can get in to the SME market they will continue to do well. Their current book still holds considerable future underlying profits as well. As a competitor of ours I don't particularly like them but they are a switched on bunch of cookies and will always find something to fill the gaps.

Certainly increases the likelyhood of a buyout. If the directors cant see future returns through growth in the core business they have plateaued and will want to sell and move on. Disappointed by the reaction.

These interims should shake out the short-termers, and offer a useful buying opportunity for we buy-and-hold investors ... mct

Won't be long before PG get snapped up by one of their larger competitors - AIG or CBS - IMHO. Sector is ripe for consolidation.

Seems to be edging higher, presumably the market is anticipating some decent half year results later this month. Last year the publication date was announced on 14th September so we should see something shortly.

John Barber the FD has said PGH definitely does not have a dual listing and he forwarded the following reply from IC: "We have had many phone calls on the feature and the issue of Aim shares which qualify for tax breaks and we will be writing a piece in this week's issue pointing out that our tables, which were sourced from Bloomberg and Perfect Information, included companies which have been involuntarily and unofficially listed on Berlin. The writer of the piece understood that the tables did not include any shares which are merely traded on foreign exchanges but for some reason shares available through Berlin were not screened out. He was also assured by a statement from the Inland Revenue that it recognised every exchange in Germany. We were aware that errors could have crept into the article and therefore included a rare warning in the piece that the tables should not be relied upon and further checks should be made regarding the status of individual companies. We are now in the process of revising our Aim article tables and producing a definitive list of dual-listed companies. We wrote the article in the first place to satisfy those readers who have asked us regularly for lists of shares that do qualify for inheritance tax relief but in the process seem to have tripped up on Berlin. I apologise again for the confusion but can assure you that we do not wish to mislead and will be updating readers in this week's issue."

I have just heard from John Barber, the Finance Director, he is going to look into the problem.

I was horrified to read in the Investors Chronicle today that Personal Group Holdings has a dual listing, and so its shareholders are not eligible for the normal IHT and CGT breaks for an AIM listed company. A 75% reduction in the CGT payable is a definite plus for investing in this company. Can anyone explain why it has a dual listing, surely a listing on AIM by itself would be sufficient, so that the UK shareholders can pay less CGT!

Yes Eric - that's what I meant. Chris Johnston can now retire happily and spend the rest of his days floating around the Med on his boat, which I'm told is also very impressive.

Still yields over 5%. PE is between 15 if you use fully diluted on post tax earnings or 8 on EBITA. Generating cash and a very strong balance sheet with £20.5m shareholders funds and only £9m goodwill. This is very conservatively priced. More of the same please.
