Trading Update reads well, the 0.71 million of cash should ensure a dividend this year. PHSC plc ("the Group"), a leading provider of health, safety, hygiene and environmental consultancy services and security solutions to the public and private sectors, is pleased to announce an update on its performance for the financial year ended 31 March 2014. These indicative figures are per management accounts, currently unaudited. Consolidated Group revenue for the period was around GBP 7.6m representing an increase of approximately 30% over what was achieved during the previous year (GBP 5.8m). EBITDA was around 22% higher than the previous year at GBP 0.73m, compared with GBP 0.60m last year. Net assets were approximately GBP 6.4m, including cash of GBP 0.71m. Stephen King, CEO, said: "Subject to the outcome of the financial audit, the Board is pleased to be able to report a further improvement in revenues and profitability year-on-year. The outcome is in line with our management budgeting. We have benefitted from full year contributions from our two most recent acquisitions (QCS International Limited and B to B Links Limited) and the legacy health and safety businesses have broadly performed in line with expectations. "Bank balances are substantially higher than at this time last year, bolstered by a share placing last autumn that generated GBP 480,000 after expenses followed by improved cash flow from trading activities. Final instalments related to the two acquisitions mentioned above fall due during Q2 of 2014/15. These sums cannot be calculated until the end of the respective earn-out periods. If performance is sustained at recent levels for the remainder of the period, final payments would total around GBP 425,000. Our cash flow forecast indicates that these payments can be met from existing bank balances without adversely affecting the cash requirements of normal trading activities. "More details about individual subsidiary performances will be given at the time of our Preliminary Announcement of Results, expected in the middle of July 2014."

Someone keen to get out and sold 15k 2p below the bid, to me this is still a great long term investment case with a market cap of 3 million and expected EBITDA of 700/750k with the new businesses performing well. Also the dividend which beats the banks hands down.

Consolidated Group sales and EBITDA (per management accounts, unaudited) for the nine months ended 31 December 2013 were as below: Group sales and other income: GBP 5,715,755 (nine months ended 31 December 2012: GBP 3,856,440). EBITDA: GBP 475,378 (nine months ended 31 December 2012: GBP 362,800, adjusted for exceptional item). Net assets stood at GBP 6,282,881 (at 31 December 2012: GBP 5,488,564) including cash at bank of GBP 180,000. Stephen King, CEO, said: "The Group's total revenues are up 48% on this time last year, and EBITDA is 31% higher than for the corresponding period. All of the additional revenues and earnings arise from our two most recent acquisitions, B to B Links Limited and QCS International Limited. The remaining health and safety-related businesses continue to face challenging market conditions, but taken together they still account for the majority of Group income and profit." "Trading was, as anticipated, noticeably lower over the Christmas and New Year period, with many clients closed down for the holidays or focussing on other priorities. In consequence, December's sales figures were adversely affected." "The board looks forward to a strong final quarter in line with the trend in recent years and is confident that its previous projection of EBITDA for the full year of between GBP 700k-750k remains attainable."

Fully aware of that and as far as the company goes the advice from there accountants is to keep the status quo. Sadly a symptom of buying new businesses.

While the companies shareprice was in the doldrums a few years back they kept paying a great yeild, the management have spoken of the link between dividend and the shareprice but ofcourse now is different since the game changing acquisitions.

"Now most investors have been in PHSC for the last few years on the back of the high yield " each to their own views but imo the facts dont agree with your post the share price has doubled over last 2 years. not because of the divi yield imho. ----- Any holder has made much more from share price increase than from the divi. ---- (anyone that picks shares based on divi yield has got it all wrong imo but each to their own (selling a few shares is another option if need some income)) ---- "the bank balance stood at GBP523k at the end of October 2013. " approx. 2.4M of receivables...about 1M higher than payables imo should just have borrowed from the bank say 1/2M just for 6 months perhaps as wait for some of receivables to be paid ...but since the results were good imo the dirs. fancied a bit of insider trading and issued themselves some new shares ...which with tax rebate perhaps cost them 15-18p looks like imo, "easy money"...and imo morally questionable --- and if dirs. are not caning PIs via filling their pockets with cheap options or shares at good moments......they are involved in cases of fraud or false accounts (CPP, Lamprell, Speedy, INVU, Photo-me, OCH ...the list never ends !!).....and/or related party transactions like giving jobs to wives and family (DQE, SDL, OCH, ILX etc) or renting offices to the co. or via making IPOs that are rubbish, often using IPO docs. that are blatant misrepresentations to the market ....imo AIM is a cesspit and not making any changes to try to solve the problems

This was a case of it all being too late, now as a shareholder if they didn't issue a placing the cash would have had to come from somewhere leaving us with no dividend. Now most investors have been in PHSC for the last few years on the back of the high yield so with no dividend the shares fall people sell and the shares fall further, not a vote of confidence that an over subscribed placing had. Parity in the share price has now been restored and imo for this company the placing was the best outcome to have let all P.I's invest would have taken too long and cost much more. I can live with a little dilution if my shares are worth the same and i'm still getting a dividend.

with tax relief of 40% I assume that the dirs. and friends that issued themselves shares at 25p 3 seconds BEFORE revealing good trading results to the market (insider trading imo) they effectively paid around 15-18p price now is almost double the MD wrote that the bank were happy to lend them the money if they had wanted. The co. has little debt and could easily have done it that way imo. the EPS would be 16% higher if it had happened, since no new shares would be needed.....benefitting all shareholders EQUALLY. Morally correct for dirs. to enrich themselves when they are supposed to conduct the co. for benefit for all shareholders, with equal treatment ? same happened at Trak, DCI etc etc at DCI the MD invested a few million at the discount insider price.......so, much worse imo ----- if PIs accept to be kept out of rights issues....and do not complain...then they are partly to blame that it keeps happening

Nothing definite but after the recent placing i would expect them to pay atleast 1.5p again.

Yes chrisis33 the dividends have been most welcome. Still find it incredible that the market cap of this company is only 3.5 million odd.

Nowt wrong in anything they have done. This is a well run company that doesn't operate like that. Most shareholders are very pleased with how the co is performing.

Good grief. Small company using capital markets to raise capital to fund growth. Participating in the offering to show confidence... dial 999 immediately.

directors and others took new shares at 25p ....4 days before year end when at the same time as reporting the issue of the new shares....very good trading results were also reported indicating an EPS of around 5...and increasing ie. that 25p per share was a hand out of company assets, which the dirs. are reqd. by the Company Act 2006 to safeguard. the co. says that it could have borrowed the money. (if it had borrowed the money instead the resulting EPS would then be around 16% higher, since no dilution or the co. could have issued a trading statement, seen the share price rise and then done a share issue at the new higher price, resulting in less new shares to raise the same money, benefitting all shareholders as reqd. by the Company Act but if had done that then the dirs. and any related parties that took up new shares would not have been putting money in their own pockets) anyone think it was CORRUPTION or FRAUD ? and yet again, new shares not made available to existing PI shareholders anyone willing to request the City of London police to investigate ?
