microscope property sale still pending and circa nett £300k to phsc they will relinquish a lease so that will save money by moving to the one site, on as far as i can make out an owned property having said that there could a dilapidation claim from the landlord continual writing down of goodwill will reduce tax charge? but doesn't affect cashflow and hopefully not dividends

Overall a good set of numbers I feel and the dividend is a very healthy bonus. (Meijiman I no longer post my average price on bulletin boards but I feel i timed my buys pretty well :)). Given that the goodwill impairment of 200k appears pre-ebitda, otherwise the company has made a profit of just over 200k from non-Adamson's (ie from continuing) operations. That will be after the dividend (approx 146k at 1p per share) as well. The cash position remains healthy (cash and cash equivalents up from last year despite the dividend) and I presume the unclaimed but available HSBC loan of 300k remains intact. While there will be some minor costs of Adamson's for some years, (lease of machinery, insurance for unfinished contracts etc) it's clear nothing like the 160k+ loss for the year reported. No mention (unless I missed it) of the sale of the Adamson premises, which promises to being in a windfall of over 300k and it looks as though consolidation of the other subsidiary mentioned will mean another property for sale. That division appears to be the one small other concern with cost savings enacted. However it looks as though the likes of QCS is set for another good year. There's the usual waffle about brexit, the high street and the weather, classic Stephen King, and while I don't doubt possible minor effect, once again i think currency is the one area where he makes a good point. Emphasis seems to be on the Euro's potential negative effect, but then we see that the dollar has had a positive impact further into the heart of the statement. Nav of 36p a share and the trading outlook section which includes a first quarter ebitda profit similar to last year of 121k is another positive and on valuation grounds this stock remains in my opinion deeply undervalued. I have a 12 month target to next year's full results of 25p, with the dividend remaining healthy, Adamson's effectively gone and QCS continuing to advance. (I think 25p would still substantially undervalue the company, as it would still be a market cap of well under 4 million!) Dare we hope we might even get a one-off bonus dividend as well after the sale of the Adamson's property? After all 300k+ would equate to well over 2p a share windfall for the company :) The current yield at 12p (offer) is over 8%, now looking secure too for next year imho, and reason enough by itself to continue to form very much a part of my portfolio.

Best paragraph for me was they continue to make progress with divisional structures. This will be very important in future years if we want to sell all or part of the business.

I still think the best thing they could do is sell it all off, return the cash and wind it up. We would see some real value then.

Around there NTV depending on what you paid. For me, it's a solid 10%. Historically, add another 5%. Overall, a mixed bag as ever - but with the added freehold sale net proceeds of £300k and the fact that the two people running it own 43%, it's all good IMO.

results show that it is on a 9% yield !! am I reading that correctly? they should be able to maintain it going forward as well shame the monies from the property sale not in yet but will be a big boost to the balance sheet it needs to get bigger somehow with a decent sized reverse takeover or some decent organic growth in the existing business

Yes lehibou agree with most of that. Strand Hanson I think from memory won an award along the lines of best dealmaker (can't recall the exact wording) on AIM last year. So was an interesting choice. Results were predicted for early August, so hopefully this week, and, while we can expect some one-off costs associated with Adamson's, the overall business numbers themselves are set to be decent, from the TS. I will be more interested to read the outlook, doubtless the usual cautious Stephen King-speak lol, but also to see if momentum has continued in the hitherto rapidly growing QCS division. It may be they want to update in more detail on Adamson's, which could lead to a minor delay I guess. More positively we could get firm news that the premises have been sold and even though that would be a post-balance sheet event, might give them enough confidence to pay another dividend. In truth I don't expect a divvy, until the next interims, but it would be a nice bonus. I remain very happy with my holding here

needs a new major shareholder say take a 30% holding and find something to do with it as others have said it is really too small to be listed it is finding the right company and right shareholder to take decent stake . find the right company to add to it's portfolio would be a difficult one. as most reverse takeovers seem to be about how certain people can make as much out of the deal in fees and nothing to do with the quality of the company Be interesting to see if there is some news of some sorts pretty soon lingering write offs may not be helpful unless of course they are minor

I think the finals will probably come out some time next week / early the following week. We already know the likely ebitda and cash figures, so unless there have been any major developments in the last two months, it will all be about the outlook commentary (and exceptionals). Personally, I see this as a future income stock given the directors' combined holdings of over 46%. The two main exec's salaries (King & Coote with over 43% between them) were £90k and £70k last year, plus rel' small bonuses. These may still be quite big salaries for a tiny £1.4m co., but seem reasonable overall - and you can bet they'd like to return to the divi level of most previous years of 1.5p (pre Adamson’s troubles). Given the price achieved for the freehold, if trading is improving, they could pay a final divi of 1p which would only be £73.4k - but more likely half that at a guess, given any further exceptional costs ref Adamson's (anyone have any idea re these?). It's still too small to be listed, though. Maybe someone could put it out of its misery at 25pps? :-)

All gone quiet and a few boredom sells by the look of it. From the TS, results in early August, so am looking forward to them. Should confirm that there is real value here imho

Zoopla is not a good indicator...

I'm pleased with the price they look like achieving for that property. Zoopla had an estimate of about £220k on it so if it completes it's a significantly better price than I imagined. Really shareholders should get together and put pressure on the board to sell this off piecemeal and return the proceeds to shareholders. I reckon we'd triple our money. It doesn't deliver much to minority shareholders but provides a nice lifestyle to the two founders.

Yes, I'd agree with you there, Microscope. I'd have thought the 300k net cash from the freehold property sale would more than cover the various remaining Adamson's costs. The company is trading at a discount to tangible assets, which is really quite unusual in an asset-light company - consultancies - like this one. On sum-of-the-parts as well, it looks way too cheap.

The one day i go out early morning! Finally had a chance to catch up and have to say a mix of relief and feeling very pleased. I wasn't aware that the Adamson's insurance situation would go on for years, though I can't imagine it will be particularly financially significant. Otherwise i feel very happy with the statement. A lot of things I suggested in the header have come to pass. The ebitda figure of 185k for the year is actually a fair bit better than the break even i thought it might be, and given that it was 197k in the first half, it means that despite Adamson's hefty inroads, they have all but broken even second half, so other divisions must be doing well (QCS mainly I'd guess). Yes it's clear there will be (I would imagine they'll be exceptionals) several other exceptionals in this half re Adamson's, as the statement indicates, but then there is or will be the 330k sale of the plant, which will I think go a long way to covering the costs at some point, even if the contract is completed after year end. I didn't think there was any likelihood of a dividend but if the sale of the plant goes through before year end, it might be possible, though redundancies etc probably mean cash will have been under some pressure. If not it should be restored hopefully if they have a good first half to the next financial year. The company at 10.5p is valued at under 1.6 million, so with these numbers I can't see much downside in terms of intelligent valuation at least, and in my view the shares should be a lot higher than they are.

There's a few.... Let's hope the buyer of 5,580 at just before 1pm at 15p per share isn't related to the person whose trade is reported as '?' just after 2pm for the same number of shares at 11.25p.... .........Strewth! Anyway over 900,000 shares, which for a company with about 14.7 million in issue, even allowing for some apparently day trades, is pretty massive!
