Encouraging to see PTSG winning work outside the UK now via this hospital in Gibraltar and elsewhere: Http://www.ptsg.co.uk/news/ptsg-strengthens-partnership-in-gibraltar-with-rooftop-installation/ Extract: "In recent years, PTSG has increased its delivery of work outside the UK, completing projects at many unique sites and in the process building partnerships with some prestigious international clients. As well as St Bernard’s Hospital the Group has an ongoing partnership with Iraqi telecoms provider FastIraq, delivering remedial and repair works via rope access. The company also currently delivers remedial works to roof and chimney structures in the Caribbean for Barbados’s sole electricity utility provider, Barbados Light and Power." Also a renewal contract for fall arrest systems nationwide at Morrisons: Http://www.ptsg.co.uk/news/ptsg-renews-fall-arrest-contract-with-morrisons/ and impressively, a new contract at 100 buildings for the Department of Work and Pensions: Http://www.ptsg.co.uk/news/ptsg-returns-to-work-for-dwp-with-fall-arrest-contract-renewal/ "Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has received an order to provide fall arrest testing services for the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP). Operatives from PTSG’s specialist Access and Safety division will attend more than 100 buildings currently used by the DWP, to provide testing, inspections, refurbishment and replacement of existing fall arrest equipment, including guard rails, fixed ladders, anchor points and abseil bolts. The equipment is installed to provide protection to anyone carrying out high-level works at the sites."

Great news that these shares were placed at 202.5p - essentially around the all-time highs! It's only a small percentage of the vendors' holdings, but it's natural they'd want to reduce at some stage from the almost 40% they own between them. More importantly, this increases liquidity and shows good institutional appetite for the shares. Evidently the story is beginning to be appreciated.

PTSG, the niche specialist services provider, hereby notifies the market that, on 18 January 2018, 1,500,000 existing ordinary shares in the Company were placed on behalf of certain directors of the Company ("Director Vendors"), (the "Placing"), on the London Stock Exchange at a price of 202.5 pence per share. This only caused a ripple yesterday as they still own 39,507,582 shares!

Paul Scott's view on todays trading update. "That's a strikingly good announcement, given that 2018 has only just started. It's very unusual to see management being so bullish at the start of a year. Normally people tend to play it safe, and wait until out-performance is comfortably in the bag, before announcing positive. More detail is given on acquisitions, which sounds as if they're going very well. That's very pleasing, since this is a buy & build business. Hence evidence that they are good at making, and integrating acquisitions, is a big plus. Carillion insolvency - negligible impact expected. Healthy pipeline of potential acquisitions. My opinion - the CEO here is like a machine - reeling off facts & figures, and seemingly very much on top of the detail, as well as the overview - which is very impressive, and exactly what I look for at entrepreneurial businesses like this. On the downside, I do have an ongoing concern about high debtors on the balance sheet, the explanation for which I didn't find terribly convincing (it's high margin work, so we don't get paid quickly). Stockopedia shows consensus EPS forecast for 2018 at 9.9p. Based on today's update I would estimate that 12p+ is probably more realistic. That would put the shares on a 2018 PER of 15.3 or below. That looks quite attractive for a group which seems to be establishing a good track record. On paper it looks very good. Personally I'd like to see receivables (debtors) come down to a more reasonable level, before being comfortable enough to buy any. Although that reticence has cost me money, since the share price performance in 2017 was strong. Note that the shareholder base is very concentrated. The largest 2 shareholders are the CEO & Chairman. Overall, it looks interesting, and if things continue to go well, I imagine Directors might reduce their shareholdings in secondary placings. This is likely to be a stock that institutions may want to buy, and the only source of stock would be from the Directors. It would be good to see liquidity improve, as it's a thinly traded share, due to the concentrated shareholdings."

EPS December 2016 2.16p Share price when announced in March circa £1.00. Projected 2017 EPS 10.8p (Glaws2 post). Current share price £1.90. Could this price double when the results are published in March which would be inline with the EPS/Share price?

Numis have increased their target price to 220p (from 205p) and say Buy: Http://investing.thisismoney.co.uk/broker-views/ JAF111, companies almost never state specifically what the market expectations are in RNS's as these are not "their" expectations but those of outside analysts. Perhaps they should, but this will probably never change.

The emphasis on acquisitions is also interesting, and suggests more will be on the way soon: "We have a healthy pipeline of potential acquisitions to complement our unique business model, and will continue to appraise opportunities as they arise."

I've complained to the BBC about their Business Live update which states the amount incorrectly "Separately, Premier Technical Services Group (PTSG) said it undertook about £800m of work with Carillion a year."

Great update ! RNS Number : 9299B 16 January 2018 Trading update Premier Technical Services Group PLC , the niche specialist services provider, is pleased to announce that its results for the year ended 31 December 2017 are anticipated to be in line with the Board's expectations. In addition, the Board expects that the results for the year ended 31 December 2018 will be materially ahead of current market forecasts. This reflects the strength of the Group's order book and successful integration, and ongoing progress at its recently acquired businesses. The Board is also pleased to confirm that the integration of the 'Best' Lightning Protection business acquired on 4 July 2017 has progressed very well and is nearly complete. Furthermore, the UK Sprinklers business we acquired in September 2017 has been fully integrated into the Group and is trading 50% ahead of the acquired business with a very strong order book and pipeline. PTSG notes the recent statement from Carillion PLC which was placed into liquidation yesterday. The annual value of work which the Group undertakes on behalf of Carillion is c.£0.8m and it is expected that this work will be taken on by existing PTSG clients; therefore the ongoing effect on the Group is expected to be minimal. Given PTSG's highly diversified customer base, the Board expects that there will be no material impact on 2018 trading. The Group has outstanding net debt of £0.3m due from Carillion and this has been fully accounted for in the Group's 2017 Balance Sheet. The Group's final results for the year ended 31 December 2017 will be announced on 20 March 2018. John Foley, Chairman of PTSG, comments:"Our strong performance reflects the success of our strategy to seek market dominance through organic growth and carefully selected acquisitions. We have a healthy pipeline of potential acquisitions to complement our unique business model, and will continue to appraise opportunities as they arise."

PTSG will be "materially ahead of current market forecasts" this year. The CLLN debt is teeny-tiny :o))

Excellent - 2017 results nicely in line, and then..... "In addition, the Board expects that the results for the year ended 31 December 2018 will be materially ahead of current market forecasts" In particular, Sprinklers are racing ahead "with a very strong order book and pipeline". Carillion is almost a non-issue with only a minor receivable due and all work set to be picked up by others. The "materially ahead" statement should concentrate minds nicely :o))
