I feel a little bit sorry for PRP - they returned what they thought was excess capital and then got covided (my new verb) and needed a CBILS loan to keep them going. This will act as a dividend blocker while it remains in place - hopefully no the full 6 year term. Although this has been a cash-generative niche business in the past the issue I have with buying now is that there is simply much better value in the sector at the moment. Lots of recruiters are trading at a discount to TBV where most of the assets are trade recievables. PRP is on 1.84xTBV after adjusting for the return of capital BEFORE any covid related trading losses. That they had £1m cash & no debt at 30th September 2019 but now needed £2m CBILS loan suggests these losses could be substantial. GATC is on 0.6 TBV, HYDG & RTC are on 0.9 TBV and are mostly cash-generative as their large receivables books unwind. Buy these and you get any recovery in the trading business in for free. It is tempting to see the very large fall in PRP and think it must be good value, but compared to other small recruiters it still seems to be overvalued if anything.

There’s rumours circulating about a possible takeover by HRNet, but the volume signatures are tiny. If I invest it will be based on the previously posted research and not rumours.

Ok, so I've had this tipped to 100p. I've done some initial research: Valuation Is Prime People undervalued compared to its fair value and its price relative to the market? Undervalued compared to fair value Share Price vs. Fair Value 82.0% Undervalued Current Price UK£0.43 Fair Value UK£2.39 Short Term Liabilities: PRP's short term assets (£8.1M) exceed its short term liabilities (£3.5M).

Agree Typo, if I’d had any sense I’d have sold out yesterday because I feared a drop like this and I actually think it will go further back towards the 100p mark.

This morning's clonk seemed a bit excessive. The return of capital only 16p, not 28.5p? Just goes to show it's not always a good idea to hold out for the dividend/capital return. I wonder how ALM will go tomorrow.

Good finish to the day so let’s hope there’s no sell off tomorrow before ex day for the 16p payment on Wednesday?

Since the share premium account is not directly affected by trading or paid out of profits like a normal dividend, is the share price expected to fall by the 16.3p payment to shareholders when they go ex on Jan 22nd?

A positive move given that management tend to be quite cautious and their markets face some headwinds, must be confident.

It’s seen a bit of buying interest for a few days now so fingers crossed there’s good news. I had feared the opposite with the current situation in HK.

I noticed HYDG say they are still considering acquisitions so I think there still could be sector consolidation in the future. Directors and key stakeholders hold 55% here though so I think some kind of merger is more likely if they feel that they need greater scale to deliver their strategy rather than selling out.

Could just be it’s a very cheap stock with a growing cash pile and currently pays almost 5% yield which goes x dividend this Thursday for 3.4p.

Share price rising today. Tipped ? Bid rumours ? XD 19 July ? Well it could be this : "the Group has the option to purchase CMD's remaining equity capital after 30 June 2018" RNS 11 October 2017 CMD has been an exceptional acquisition and Asia Pacific almost justifies the market cap of Prime People by itself, not even allowing for the value of the above option.

Yes the cycle shows no signs yet as the say next year will be similar to this year. Operating profit in the UK was 0.9 million whereas HK it was 1.55 so far from a UK based company now after the acquisition of Command.[ 60%]

It's the type of jobs MRF, not just the quantity and even then, not every country is like the UK. Plenty of steam in PRP yet to me.

This has gotta be the top of the cycle imo. Unemployment at a record low. Unemployment cannot keep reducing forever. Sooner or later the market has to loosen
