This is what the AR said about the HSE situation and I am unsure of what further guidance they can give us quote Following the fatal accident at Chesterfield Special Cylinders Limited (“CSC”) in June 2015, other than the submission by CSC of written responses to questions from the Health and Safety Executive (“HSE”), there have been no further developments since the preliminary statement on 12 June 2018 and the HSE investigation into this accident remains ongoing. On 1 February 2016 the Sentencing Council’s new “Health and Safety Offences, Corporate Manslaughter and Food Safety and Hygiene Offences Definitive Guideline” (2016) came into force. The guidelines set a range of fines dependent on the levels of harm and culpability. These levels are assessed by the Judge when sentencing and not at the time of charges being brought. We continue to cooperate fully with the HSE. Until the HSE investigation is complete CSC’s management and legal adviser are not in a position to assess what charges may be brought. As a result of this and the nature of the sentencing guidelines it is not possible to determine with any degree of certainty what, if any, financial penalties may be levied on CSC or any other Group company as a result of this investigation. At such time as the quantum and likelihood of any penalty is able to be reliably determined further disclosure or provision will be made in accordance with IAS 37 “Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets”. 32.

Moral of the story is do not hold shares that begin with P;as a holder of PFC I am well aware of the litigation risks and so was the market. The poor man at PRES died so long ago that I and I suspect the market did not factor it in and given the general illiquidity of the share I am pleasantly surprised it did not fall more. Am suspending judgement till after Tuesday.

Well I suppose they'll kind of base it on the size of the company as well as the extent of the failings. I can't imagine they'd actually want to bankrupt them.

Will there ever be a reason to be optimistic about this company? I thought they got a good price for Greenlane given that it never made any money and it fixed the balance sheet. But how much could a HSE fine come to? https://www.investegate.co.uk/CompData.aspx?code=PRES&tab=announcements

Creative meeting to be held next week. Should get a good rally once the sale goes through. Improving business with a significant reduction in debt after Greenlane sale.

Note that this appeared in yesterday's Telegraph Questor quote Update: Pressure Technologies Our highly risky turnaround call in August on micro-cap stock Pressure Technologies is off to a shaky start but the precision engineering firm is making some progress. The proposed sale of its biogas operation for £11.1m is a big step forward as it will simplify the business and help reduce its £6.7m net debt to further cut risk. Note also how the transaction price compares with the group’s £17.2m market value. Full-year results last month did show the expected £3.1m loss but with orders at the core manufacturing operations up by between 36pc and 54pc year on year it may be that the worst is behind the firm. The oil and gas industry is leading the way here, as hoped, although the latest slide in crude prices must be watched. This turnaround story is taking longer than expected but if earnings do hit bottom this year the shares could start to roll. Questor says: hold Ticker: PRES Share price at close: 95p

Hard to know regards cylinders because of the long term nature (to 2023) of the orderbook. I think Dreadnought was delayed so a larger proportion than anticipated of that work will drop into 2019. The Type 26 Frigate should also make 2019 revenue.

Thanks Pat, yes you are right - missed that it was a subtotal in the segmental reporting not a separate division. I think that does mean my 10% is a bit low for the Cylinders growth given order book growth of 36-54% for manufacturing. Given we know PMC has 54% order book growth then I think Cylinders must have 36% order book growth. Do you think 20% would be reasonable for Cylinders revenue growth given a 36% increase in order book? This would give 10p EPS (at normalised tax) - maybe 11-12p actual reported with tax losses and lower interest charges due to debt repayment. Still interesting but maybe not the no-brainer it looked with my faulty segmental analysis!

Here is my usual exercise, showing results in graphic form. Click on sheet tabs at bottom of screen to see bar charts. Look especially at H2 results which are so much better than H1. Http://www.david-wilmshurst.co.uk/pres/pres_data.htm Edit 12/12/18: H1-18 figures for adjusted profit and eps include those from Hydratron which was disposed of on 07/06/18. Full year 2018 figures exclude Hydratron figures which complicates calculations for figures for H2-18. Entries for H2-18 have been temporarily removed. It might be a few days before I have another go at it.

Mark, You've created a separate division for manufacturing when it actually comprises the Cylinder & PMC divisions combined. Cylinder Division was highly profitable in H2 after breakeven H1 on higher turnover. Increased orderbook in PMC not really apparent in H2 revenues so would expect a steller H1 19.

These figures are pre-exceptional which we could see more of due to corporate activities, but probably not significant. Other exceptionals tend to be non-cash like goodwill write down. Think the MM's made a mistake marking this down on open. Not helped by then not making any volume available through the RSP. Thoughts on these figures from those who know the company better?

I opened up the results with a certain amount of dread, fearing the worst and kitchen sinking by the new CEO. These fears are unfounded. I too am more confident but am hesitating to buy more as I feel I have enough exposure to oil and gas suppliers. I was interested in the emphasis of the CEO on personnel matters, which would suggest this he saw as a problem area- there was of course the tragic death some years back; also their capex requirements ; as a TPG shareholder in their comments on the Dreadnought programme and the overseas defence market generally; as an ITM shareholder on the hydrogen market and refuelling stations. Good to see comments on bank covenants; that said I will be more comfortable when they get the AE sale proceeds on and can reduce the RCF. The sober reality is there is a long way to go before we can think of dividends. Ps As and when I have the time need to understand why they sold Hydraton if they are thinking of doing more acquisitions.

Mainly due to amortisation and exceptionals, the operating profit from the 3 remaining divisions actually totalled about £5m, the balance sheet will soon be fixed if the disposal goes as planned and the outlook is promising. I'm more confident now about these than I have been for some time.

On balance a good deal but did not expect the sp's reaction to be so healthy. To me makes the management of the group simpler and the business more predictable. As you say A_L_S, good to reduce the debt. They have a stake in the future with the share holding and the repayment of the loan. Have not bothered to work out any hit to the Goodwill as we will learn tomorrow. I see that the company was bought for £6m cash and £6.4m in deferred payment but have not had time to see if these were paid. We need to remember that this does increase the oil and gas concentration; also I see another Canadian company in this space Xebec had had a good few months.

Not sure whether this is good news or not. https://www.investegate.co.uk/pressuretechnologies--pres-/rns/proposed-sale-of-greenlane-biogas/201812100700058952J/ I guess it fixes the balance sheet and gets rid of the ongoing losses. It'll be interesting to see what the price does today.

PUGUGLY, for my sins I am still here; based on what has happened in the last two years we will get the annual figures w/c Monday week December 10. Bracing myself for the worst; went to the main corporate website and there was a news item from last week of a Minister visiting the main site but no news on orders. Greenlane have a much improved website but no news on orders.
