|so 4 months into year and no update....|
|This share goes from bad to worse!|
|Management waiting for a story to tell?? How about telling shareholders how they performed last year!!
In the meantime the share price hits record lows. Still as long as DW, Stefan and co still get their huge monthly cheques why should they care|
Remember there is a new board now with Steffan at the helm. So lack of trading statements is clearly a new management decision.
Most of the share price move here is based on old news. Yes we know the debt notes need reducing 60-70%. We know they have been writing down their asset values on the accounts and dealing with costs due to TTMV. There has been a lot of sells here from nervous investors. However a lot of buys from BM trust. Also Gary Wyatt whose holdings have not fallen below 5% here. Meaning he had close to 6% of stock before the share issues. He has always done RNS for holdings.
The Asian/Middle east businesses together were making over 1.5m profit last year. We know these businesses increased revenue by 11% in H1. The pound has dropped nearly 20% this year. Australia turned over nearly 8m last years. This alone should help revenue for the year rise circa 7-11% or more?
The new senior hires all appear to have added new clients to Porta. The senior hires should also help convert new contract wins. Looks like some of their existing businesses are doing well too. Publicasity has made 3-4 new hires this year. Publicasity seem to have gained 4-5 decent clients for 2016/17 including Tesco, Neff/Siemens, Feather and Black and other big retail clients. Plus Newgates clients announced in H1 results. This should easily offset any lost contracts.
The rebranding of PPS to Newgate engage has been a global branding. Even the Australian business is now using this branding for public affairs. The move to bring Thirteen under this brand too gives porta a very strong global brand with a lot to offer.
A full year loss is very likely given H1 write downs, closed business costs and the borrowed 500k here. How many of these will be one offs? What money is in the bank still? What we have seen from other PR firms is a very strong final quarter. I expect Porta to match that and push that performance into 2017. Especially with overseas investments and an increased stake in these. Also increased stake in redleaf. (Reduced payments to third parties.)
I would like to see the share price supported more here but I think the board appear to be waiting till they have a story to tell. I think any debt deal here could see the Sp double to triple in value. As the share price recovers this will give the board options on debt and many other things. Eventually I expect all the directors to pile in here. For now they need to avoid any further share issues.|
|Looking pretty grim IMO. £9m market cap and still all that debt to Bob M/family.
Management as you say paid a fortune and yet over promise and under deliver. About time they tried to reverse that. Not a holder haven't been for a while, but graph says it all IMO....
I sincerely hope for all holders they pull something out of the bag....
|Oldie, hopefully their tardiness in getting any information to shareholders will be reflected in the way that they take their exorbitant, grossly inflated salaries!! Large salaries and share options should only be paid to those who are successful and earn them! The present management need to either show some sensible results or get out before they bankrupt the company. They have had long enough!!|
|Under 3p and still not a word from management about last year or anything else for that matter.
Is there a thread on this board with a more inappropriate heading?|
|What do you expect from a PR Company, good communications?
Who do shareholders think they are expecting info on 2016 performance! Wait until May like last year.
As the saying goes bad numbers take longer to add up|
|Cmon PTCM lets have soon good news!!!!|
|Lol speed, I was just thinking that when I refreshed this page :D|
|"How low can you go,
how low can you go,
how low can you go..."|
|Down 10% today. Must have been an RNS confirming that management are still alive|
|Communications at their worst!
This has been an unmitigated disaster for all investors except the BOD
Long term chart communicates best.|
|Everthing above 3.75p is a BUY, shown up as a sale. More Buys than Sales.|
|Looks to me like a few PI's have thrown in the towel with this today!|
|An RNS confirmed that management are still alive.|
|Why the mark-up in the share price today?|
|It's an RNS Reach so not price sensitive.
Still any news is better than no news|

|YesThat has surely mopped up all the sell ordersI still don't know what's going on but be assured the Morton clan do|
|There's your answer jefftwo - Morton's topped up. Is he preparing to make a bid for the company if and when it becomes profitable?|
|Thought there may have been an RNS this morning re yesterday 7m sharesAny thoughts?|
