Interesting that (so far) none of the 5 main shareholders who between them own 78% of the company have reduced their substantial holdings.

jftm, I can't see a rival being interested, but any business without debt which throws off decent amounts of cash is a potential target for private equity. I have no idea if they are actually looking at PHTM, but the recent falls would certainly make it look cheap.

Another chunky 250K shares bought this morning. Any chance such a company could be taken over? Who would be the suitors??

Back in today, the the share price seem to be bottoming out (famous last words) MCAP £300M expected PBT £39M (including £3M loss from Max Sight) Good cash balance and Op Cash I also like this part from the interims : New services have been introduced to a small number of photobooths in the UK & Republic of Ireland and France, enabling customers to scan and copy documents. We are monitoring customer response and, if successful, further photobooths will be enabled with these services during the second half.

This week I’ve delved a bit more into smaller companies with analysis of Photo-Me (#PHTM), Topps Tiles (#TPT), Belvoir Lettings (#BLV) and Hostelworld Group (#HSW). The biggest company looked at is easyJet (#EZJ).https://twitter.com/smallcappick/status/1114257791827496961

xxx, Indeed, I have found Glassdoor to be quite enlightening when researching companies. With bad companies, the rot typically starts at the top.

Agreed re: B2B...acquiring businesses dealing in an unfamiliar area, catering equipment at prices the previous owners were willing to accept seemed like a vanity project at the time. If you read the glassdoor feedback it should not be a surprise however.

I've questioned the B2B laundry operation previously. As mentioned this is an unnecessary complication to the business. The focus on laundry should be the consumer end market, solely.

Pleased to say that Hudson Sandler were prompt in their reply to my query about the B2B machines issue. They say - "Photo-Me’s UK B2B business refers to B2B distribution and leasing of laundry and catering equipment to institutions such as hospitals, care homes and universities, through Fowler UK, Inox Equip and Tersus Limited" Like you snadgey, I'm surprised by its impact and I imagine there might be some repercussion for next FY guidance. As SpectoAcc points out, they have already gone from a H2 recovery to order levels not recovering by the end of H2 due to uncertainties which may well continue into next year.

Ironically it's the laundry which is letting the side down here. As others have mentioned the ID side is still holding its own, though only growing at the same rate new booths are deployed. In the short term I see a battle between capex and dividends and the former may well win. I'm not too worried by this as the company can make more money by deploying laundry units than loosing cash to shareholders. The B2B order lag highlights the lumpy nature of this aspect of the business - I am surprised by the impact this has had though! The company still iterate the growth they expect from laundry in the medium term. I'm with others - the outlook statement will be key here.... All the best

Basically like rental, with each user renting the equipment. Thus once machine paid for each use is rental and very high margin.

It's a fair comment. And as Tobacco shows (ok it's not technology) a managed volume decline can be highly profitable. On ID, I'm surprised governments allow mobile phone generated pics, but that's a different debate.

I think most investors have been expecting the ID side to erode for the last 5 years EI but it keeps throwing off cash. In the 9 years as a holder I've rarely seen a booth being used but they must be very popular somewhere. As you say, PHTM is being innovative with the booths now offering a banking service so it's not all about photos. However this Brexit nonsense can't be helping their negotiations with european governments (eg Dutch government re driving licences) so I don't expect a breakthrough there. Nobody here seems able to help explain what the B2B machines issue is all about so I'll write to IR to see if they can shed some light.

The b2c laundry side is interesting. I provided a long post on my user experience a few years back. The key to the valuation is how quickly profitability may erorde on the ID side, V the longer term potential from laundry. To be fair to PHTM, this is a highly innovative company.
