Another niche high margin Facilities Management company Restore came fifth with a three year compound growth of 26.3.
High margin Facilities Management took two of the top 10 slots. Great sector for investors.
On the hunt for AIM-quoted growth stars

On the hunt for AIM-quoted growth stars
Many investors breathed a sigh of relief after the recent collapse of merger talks between the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and Deutsche Boerse. In particular, it lifted the uncertainty of how a deal might impact on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM).
AIM is the UK market for smaller growth companies. It's been on a strong run since last year's EU referendum, rising in value by around 36%. But it's traditionally been a market that hates uncertainty, and any whiff of trouble tends to drag on prices.
With the LSE's talks with Deutsche Boerse now over, the imminent threat of upheaval has gone. And that's good news for those investors who value AIM's tax breaks and its potential to produce multi-bagging growth stars.
Signs of improving quality
There's a total of 973 UK and international companies quoted on AIM, but in recent years the numbers have been falling.
Some critics argue that reflects a general weakness among the companies quoted on AIM. But others suggest that quality has now taken precedence over quantity.
In other words, the weakest stocks have now gone, and those that are left are generally better quality and are driving up the value of the AIM All-Share index.
According to the latest statistics, there are signs that the trends in companies coming and going from AIM are changing. Accountancy firm UHY Hacker Young says the number of companies leaving AIM dropped by 16% in the last 12 months, falling from 105 in 2015/16 to 88 in 2016/17.
By contrast, the number of companies joining AIM rose by 5%, from 38 to 40. And funds raised in IPOs on AIM rose from £753 million to over £919 million.
UHY suggests that the encouraging numbers reflect the international nature of many AIM companies. Their global exposure has meant they've resisted the turmoil caused by Brexit. At the same time, the market has also benefited from rising commodity prices and growth in tech valuations.
What happens to share prices when companies leave AIM?
Explosive growth potential
But while the quality of AIM companies may be improving, it's still the case that many are highly speculative and prone to underperforming. Ploughing funds into smaller companies won't guarantee the sort of aggregate return we've seen from the AIM index over the past year.
That's why specialist small-cap fund managers like Gervais Williams and Dan Nichols look for something more. They aim to capture the explosive growth potential of smaller companies by looking for those with positive earnings growth and reasonable valuations.
Taking this approach as a starting point, Stockopedia set out to create a 'growth stars' screen for Interactive Investor. We went looking for companies with positive historical and forecast earnings growth trends.
These measures are brought together in the GrowthRank score, which ranks the growth profile of every company in the market from zero (poor) to 100 (excellent).
This rules-based approach currently tends to favour consumer cyclical and technology sectors. And, be warned, some of these potential growth stars are on rich valuations according to conventional measures of value like the price/earnings (PE) ratio. It perhaps reflects the popularity of smaller growth stocks in the current market conditions.
The list includes some of AIM's most famous growth companies of recent years, such as the fashion retailers Boohoo.com (BOO) and Asos (ASC). Other well-regarded growth companies include the buy-and-build veterinary group CVS (CVSG), and the support services firm Restore (RST).
London housebuilder Telford Homes (TEF) is also in a growth sweet spot right now. While slightly newer businesses to AIM include Premier Technical Services (PTSG) and the IT supplier, Quixant (QXT).
Hunting for growth stars
It has been a year of super performance from the Alternative Investment Market - helped in large part by some of its better quality high-growth companies. While there's a lot of evidence showing that smaller companies outperform, it's also true that many AIM stocks are high risk.
With potentially weak financial resilience, AIM shares need careful handling. But it's equally clear that investing in AIM companies can produce stunning results. Look carefully and it's possible to find some of the most exciting and dynamic performers in the market.|
|News of two more lightning protection contracts:
|Another completion from last year's acquisition:
Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has installed new dry riser systems at The Old Gasworks development in Sutton.
|This suggests that perhaps Numis have increased their target price to 130p, though I can't see any mentions of such an increase elsewhere:
This year's forecast of 8.2p EPS looks pretty conservative to me given 7.63p EPS last year and a tiny increase in the shares in issue since last year.|
|The last Numis update from Sep 2016 gave 125p as a target which is now 6 months old. Do we have a later target as we are now within 4% of 125p. Any comments on likely FV as I haven't even got a ballpark figure in mind. Thanks.|
|RNS - First Pacific have increased their holding by 760,000 shares to above 18% with 15.95m shares:
|To me the plethora of small contracts broadcasts PTSG to industry and spreads the net across multiple sectors. They are the seed that feeds and enables further acquisitions. Perhaps like the car industry they make lower margins on new sales but much higher persistent returns on maintenance. I shall be topping up on dips.|
|ah but profitable tho?|
|It's just contract after contract here 👍|
Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has been awarded a contract to provide lightning protection services at a new hotel and cinema complex in the heart of London’s West End.
|£2m of shares traded today. As a long term holder very happy with the recent results and share price. I have met the very impressive management team who built MacLellan from a small FM company and sold the business to Interserve for a 9 figure sum. Directors and CEO mid 50s. This feels like the last and most impressive piece of work from proven and experienced FM talent.|
|nice to see a busy and informative board here, lse is dead|
|Great 4 page feature on PTSG's award-winning nationwide partnership with M&S, which has developed from a small job to covering over 400 stores for a range of services "including façade access and fall arrest equipment services, lightning protection and electrical testing, high-level cleaning and training solutions":
|Cheers fizzypop. That's additional secure income for the next 3 years then.
And PTSG have won a "fast growth" award - the CEO says PTSG is now "the UK’s foremost provider of specialist services":
|3-yr Guttering contract across 14 offices:
Premier Technical Services Group PTSG (PLC) has been awarded a three-year nationwide contract to provide gutter cleaning services for wealth management business St. James’s Place Plc.
|Numis have increased their forecast for this year to 8.2p EPS, with a 1.6p dividend.
At 118p the P/E is 14.4, which is pretty inexpensive for a company doing this well and likely to make further earnings-enhancing acquisitions.
Using the 57% EPS increase last year to 7.63p EPS, the PEG is just 0.25, which is remarkably low. I suspect Numis' forecast is conservative and leaves room for further upgrades.|
|Gosh its now 120p on Google Finance.|
|Another completion by their recent acquisition:
Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has installed a number of dry riser systems at a large retail and leisure development in Southampton.
|Through the £100m market cap barrier today, so presumably this is now on the radar of a whole new batch of potential investors.
|Another contract to maintain momentum:
Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has been awarded a contract to install lightning protection systems at Phase 4 of the development of the Bicester Village Designer Outlet in Oxfordshire.
|That's a 40%+ uplift since TMI brought it to my attention back in Oct. More to come here imo.|
