zico01: investographer One has to make a decision when to buy(and sell) The company is trading very strongly and will continue to trade very strongly for foreseeable future BUT this is not reflecting in the share price at the moment.The share price will start to re-rate. I'm convinced towards end of January after they published the final results more upgrades will follow and the share price will be a lot higher than todays. I'm holding mine very strongly at the moment.
investographer: mojomogozYesterday 11:51 am8 likes...seems that others may have an interest.I have a small speculation in React (LON:REAT) too...given the size of the company its not possible to be anything other than small.Net cash has increased by c.£350k since interim (factoring in £1.16m raise in June). Approx £150k of that was timing related on receivables around end of first half. So lets say its at least £200k for the second half....and given half on half as well as YoY growth then perhaps there's another £150k of receivables effectively hanging over the year end?Earnings and cash translate quite well it seems for this business so H1 £50k earnings and then £200k plus for H2 -> £6.5m market cap on 26x current earnings after a 'turnaround' year of growth at 44%. If this is what they report then share price is probably fulsome for now. But if there's a net receivables carry over in the cash (half on half growth hints it) and earnings for the year approach £500k -> 13x current earnings on 44% growth -> share price will move a decent bit higher on results.Some points:very messy history and some pretty questionable activity and characters sniffed about this back in the day when spun out Autoclenz biz...of the corporate raider/manipulation sort that do over small sharehioldersShaun Doak is named CEO but IMO he is CEO in training (and primarily a good salesman that company needs). The CEO-trainer in background is experienced guy called Mark Braund ex CEO at RedstoneConnect and InterQuest (before the funny stuff at IQ). At this moment in businesses development this seems good. They need a good salesman more than a high end CEO...and they have the oversight of high end CEO!Simon Rogerson is a big personal holder (most of the Octopus holding is his). He's the founder of Octopus. This doesn't mean all will be really good...but its interestingVery hard to know if covid is net positive or negative for business development...they were doing quite well before covid came along but this obvs brings attention......but it seems that they are very focused on ensuring they do highly specialist high margin cleaning and not get sucked into lower end stuff where they compete with regular cleaning businessesA large part of their future growth could be as a 'platform company' whereby they connect highly qualified (often a bit bizarre and ugly, like drugs dens, pigeon damage, body fluids and parts,etc) independent cleaning capabilities with customer in urgent high margin low capital intensity.Anyway, a lot to play out and very high uncertainty and risk...but execution to date is positiveADDITION: I see that house broker Allenby forecasts PBT £ lower than what I put above and they have a better idea/access than I.
zico01: My apoligies if this has been posted before it's an excellent read ; React cleans up after Covid-19 8th April 2020 In an exclusive interview with Safestocks, Shaun Doak CEO of AIM minnow React (AIM:REAT) reveals that this specialist cleaning and decontamination company has benefitted from the high demand for its decontamination and infection control services to eliminate the virus responsible for the coronavirus. Currently, React is carrying out Covid-19 decontamination clean-ups from everything from police vehicles to offices to manufacturing plants. “I can’t give you much detail, because it’s commercially sensitive IP, however the way we carry out our decontaminations is lot more thorough than many of our competitors, that is for sure. We do ‘before’ and ‘after’ testing to ensure we have decontaminated property to a high standard and certify swabbed areas are clear from traces of the virus. We use the correct chemicals and equip our operators beyond the standards required to ensure their health & safety. We set ourselves apart by doing things the right way.” He continues: “Just to give you a little flavour of that, we do a lot of Covid-19 decontaminations that have already been decontaminated, allegedly, 2-3 days before. But they haven’t been done properly. The ATP-testing we apply hasn’t been done, which we do in order to certify the property as clear.” Not only have its 90 staff been working flat out to meet demand for its specialist decontamination services but he also foresees that this pandemic may alter the mindset of people as to the importance of regular deep cleaning. “We’ve all worked in offices that have never experienced a deep clean but I think that moving forwards things may be very different. I think it has to be.” “Once lockdown is relaxed I think there will be an increased sensitivity towards hygiene in the workplace. More specifically, there will likely be pushback from employees that won’t readily wish to go back to their place of work until the premises have been decontaminated. That may not necessarily be a Covid-19 decontamination, it may be just a deep clean. However, any incidents of property being exposed to the virus will be dealt with rapidly until such time that COVID-19 no longer remains a threat. That is certainly some of the information I am receiving from customers out there, anyway.” Indeed, just as London bus drivers have hit out at lack of protection and are demanding that their buses are properly deep cleaned, it would be surprising if employees (especially unionised ones) across the whole of the UK don’t want to ensure premises are safe before returning to work after the lockdown. Indeed, I believe employers will wish to eliminate the risks to their employees, visitors and the business of repeat infections as a result of contaminated property. For its part, React provides its employees the best PPE equipment available and certainly to a higher standard than your average deep cleaner, as Doak explains. “When Covid-19 reared its ugly head, people who were working on contract work for us, including hospital work and rail sector, we went above and beyond Public Health England and the World Health Organisation requirements to protect our staff. The reason I did that was firstly, I have a background in construction and place a heavy focus on health and safety. Secondly, we are only as good as the staff out there carrying out their job. As a brand we have a strong reputation for the excellent standard of work carried out by our staff. The last thing I wanted to do was to risk exposing them to danger in any shape or form.” React goes after difficult work with decent margins and therefore its employees are also paid well, which certainly seems fair and makes for a well-motivated workforce. “We pay our specialist operatives well, a lot higher than most would appreciate, but we appreciate what they do is unpleasant stuff that no one else wants to do. Beyond Covid-19 Doak is at pains to stress that React is not just a provider of Covid-19 decontamination services. “We are not just a Covid-19 clean-up company, we are a specialist deep cleaner. I believe the best out there.” “We carry out specialist cleaning and decontamination work that other companies just don’t want to, or aren’t qualified to do. Because of that our customers value what we do and pay us appropriately. Likewise, we pay our staff well and appropriate for the specialist work they carry out.” Thus, it gets involved in everything from deep cleaning within the healthcare sector, hospital trusts, cleaning up after road traffic accidents, picnic sites after a bank holiday, huge fly tips by the side of the road, drug dens knee-deep in needles, flea invested properties as well as train fatality clean ups for the majority of train companies. All of this takes place right across England, Scotland and Wales using its partnership/sub-contractor network. It is also important to appreciate that the React business is divided into 2 parts: of approximately equal size of revenues; reactive cleaning services – which is supporting the deep cleaning requirements; and regular maintenance services. What has become clear with the £500k contract in the rail sector that was won in January is that React is now able to leverage relationships that it has built up, to be a one-stop shop for a variety of complex cleaning jobs, a sort of facilities management house for specialist cleaning services. I therefore believe that the increase in demand for its services isn’t just a flash in the pan and that it is set to be profitable from here on in — something of a rarity for a growth stock. This company is flying beneath the radar of most investors, both because of its tiny £3m market cap and the lack of forecasts in the market. That said, it is expected to be profitable at the interims and for the full year. As it said in a Trading Update RNS published on April 6th: “At the start of the financial year, which runs to 30 September 2020, management expectations had been for the business to move into profitability after reporting annual losses for the last four-years. Recent trading, notably in March, has been ahead of management expectations and as result the Group is likely to have delivered a small operating profit in the six months to 31 March 2020, which puts the Group in a good position to meet or exceed management expectations for the full year.” Another positive is that aside from CEO Shaun Doak, who appears to be doing a fine job selling the services of the company with some big contract wins recently, there appears to be a surprising amount of in-depth management expertise within this micro-cap. These include a new Financial Director and a new Operations Manager. In summary, React is much more than a Covid-19 play and I believe the business will continue to grow profitably. As it does, the share price should appreciate substantially. Indeed, in time, I’d hope to see a dividend.
cricketcrazy: zmar90 - well done on finding the Helium information, you can follow YGEN all you like but you may have noticed that Helium were selling and went below 3% on their last announcement in 2018. Chances are they have sold the balance and would not need to declare it! Also note that Helium tend to sell stocks when there is market demand and wherever possible without forcing the price down as was the case in SKIN. It was all the "get rich quick" brigade that were punting the stock ahead of the AGM that panicked out and caused the share price fall well after Helium had finished selling. Indeed the share price initially continued upwards after the Helium sales had been completed judging by the times on the trade reports.
zmar90: thought this might be of interest: Some will have noticed the collapse of SKIN share price on great news, and some are attributing it to Helium Rising Stars fund selling 6% of the co, as it exceeded the 50m market cap of its uk microcap target base ---- pan down and see they also have a soft spot for React, and also note what might happen when we cease to be a microcap co (nice problem to have of course Recent Disclosable Transactions by: Helium Rising Stars Fund Epic Share Name Notified +/- Share Dealt Resulting Holding % REAT React Group 14-08-2020 + 2,000,000 80,621,029 16.17 MWG Modern Water 15-07-2020 - 8,900,000 71,100,000 13.55 SYS SysGroup 30-06-2020 - 415,000 1,870,000 3.78 SYS SysGroup 09-06-2020 + 649,209 2,285,000 4.62 REAT React Group 03-06-2020 + 13,236,000 78,621,029 15.77 SYS SysGroup 22-05-2020 + - 1,635,791 3.31 MWG Modern Water 14-05-2020 - 20,000,000 80,000,000 15.91 PTY Parity 07-05-2020 + 950,000 23,712,851 23.11 CALL Cloudcall Group 21-02-2020 - 379,845 1,113,235 - MWG Modern Water 17-02-2020 + - 100,000,000 19.89 PTY Parity 17-01-2020 + 1,075,000 22,762,851 22.18 CALL Cloudcall Group 14-11-2019 - 50,000 1,493,080 3.22 CALL Cloudcall Group 28-10-2019 - 250,000 1,543,080 3.33 CALL Cloudcall Group 09-10-2019 - 889,000 1,793,080 6.73 PTY Parity 16-08-2019 + 1,075,000 21,687,851 21.13 COS Collagen Solutions 05-07-2019 + 450,000 13,464,000 - PTY Parity 17-05-2019 + 1,100,000 20,612,851 20.09 SKIN Integumen 02-05-2019 + 33,371,429 72,333,724 7.59 PTY Parity 27-02-2019 + 950,000 19,512,851 19.01 CALL Cloudcall Group 05-02-2019 - 82,920 2,682,080 10.09 SKIN Integumen 21-01-2019 + 21,240,415 38,962,295 8.57 PTY Parity 02-11-2018 + 900,000 18,562,851 18.09 PTY Parity 09-10-2018 + 1,300,000 17,662,851 17.21 PTY Parity 03-10-2018 + 2,900,000 16,362,851 15.94 TAVI Tavistock Investments 28-09-2018 + 2,816,666 26,873,378 5.00 PTY Parity 25-09-2018 + 550,000 13,462,851 13.12 PTY Parity 20-09-2018 + 1,500,000 12,912,851 12.58 LGT Lighthouse Group 05-09-2018 - 3,074,706 22,656,979 17.74 PTY Parity 31-08-2018 + 200,000 11,412,851 11.12 PTY Parity 07-08-2018 + - 11,212,851 10.93 TAVI Tavistock Investments 26-07-2018 + 4,056,712 24,056,712 4.48 TAVI Tavistock Investments 17-07-2018 + - 20,000,000 3.72 YGEN Yourgene Health 17-05-2018 - 13,377,367 10,252,633 - CALL Cloudcall Group 19-04-2018 - 250,000 2,765,000 11.48 REAT React Group 15-01-2018 + - 65,385,029 23.74 GMR Gaming Realms 09-01-2018 - - 14,183,974 4.99 SKIN Integumen 22-12-2017 + 3,333,333 21,235,045 9.49 HUW Hampden Underwriting 11-12-2017 - - - - CALL Cloudcall Group 29-11-2017 - 200,000 3,015,000 13.36 CALL Cloudcall Group 11-09-2017 - 150,374 3,215,000 16.00 YGEN Yourgene Health 23-06-2017 - 2,720,000 23,630,000 7.36 SKIN Integumen 05-04-2017 - 17,901,712 10.85 COS Collagen Solutions 07-03-2017 - 13,014,000 4.11 GHE Gresham House 22-02-2017 - 153,330 200,000 - YGEN Yourgene Health 15-02-2017 - 26,350,000 10.75 YGEN Yourgene Health 13-02-2017 - 2,750,000 26,350,000 11.55 LGT Lighthouse Group 20-12-2016 + 280,000 25,731,685 20.15 D4T4 D4t4 Solutions 30-11-2016 - 757,502 638,803 -
sikhthetech: GED5, "Good article but now we need a REACTion in the share price." The article gives the company PR exposure. As Investographer and I replied to your post, the company needs to announce contracts (and/or figures) to get what you called a 'REACTion' in the share price. ;-) Ged518 Aug '20 - 12:18 - 1047 of 1051 0 1 0 Good article but now we need a REACTion in the share price."
investographer: I asked fund manager Simon Like of MD Barnard & Oberon Investments what he thought about the share price & the fact that the Directors owned no shares.This was his replyA great question. We still like the Company and it operates in an area that can only see increased demand. We are frustrated by the share price decline. I have also expressed my disappointment to their Broker. Company could do with more news flow to stimulate interest.
sikhthetech: Rivaldo, Your post on lse is not true, is it??? Cooltools stated he sold 10m on the 10th July and share price highs were around 28th/29th May, 6 wks earlier. The share price was already falling when Cooltools sold. Therefore, cooltools sell doesn't help explain why the share price fell from 1.7/1.8p highs. Your post: rivaldo RE: Burst of buyingWed 08:56 From posts on another bb, we now know that a poster called "Cooltools" who'd bought 10m shares sold them all at the highs and then at steadily reducing prices, and has now bought 6m of them back at much lower prices to hold for the longer-term to a target of 2.8p. This certainly helps to explain why the share price fell back from the 1.7p-1.8p levels. Cooltools post: cooltools - 10 Jul 2020 - 09:45:19 - 807 of 990 Changed mind, bit the bullet and just sold my entire 2% of company. Fingers crossed... (fortunately only a small loss, lost the paper gain). <...> cooltools - 10 Jul 2020 - 09:54:20 - 811 of 990 10,000,000 this morning. Shares extant: 499m, so 2%
cooltools: Yes, I liked that too. Have just added another 1m - in for a penny, in for a pound... Expecting interims to simply give actual figures to what we already know, i.e. that they are in profit at end of March. Would be nice if they could give unaudited net profits to end of April and end of May (go on REAT, we know you're reading!) which would really point the way. Presumably the share price is down partly due to worries about coming out of lockdown - ironic, as that's going to be when REAT's deep cleaning is going to be in high demand. Plus, if covid-19 hadn't happened, they would still be a strong company to keep. Considering this a fairly safe bet - little risk of going much lower, upside potential very high. Now expecting share price to meander between 1.5 and 2p for a while, then pick up towards end of the year.
rivaldo: My notes from the presentation - any corrections welcomed: - REAT have around 120 active customers, with a further 25 targeted at present - to understand what the new management are achieving, there are three example clients in particular: (1) rail client, used to spend £300k per annum,now spending £1m per annum with REAT (2) FM client, used to spend £20k, now spends £150k per annum with more to come (3) FM client, used to spend £13k, now spends £350k per annum and again more to come - REAT provide essential, valued and higher margin work, NOT basic janitorial services - focus is rail, FM and health, largely tier 1 customers - roughly 50/50 split between recurring and reactive work. The market LOVES recurring income, and 50% is an impressively high number - REAT were only England-based, but now looking to Scotland and Wales for contracts - carried out thirty-five COVID-19 related deep cleans/disinfections per month since March, covering trains, judiciary transport vehicles, London offices, manufacturing plants etc at "strong margins" - this work has more than offset any weakness in reactive work due to COVID-19 - the 23/1 £500k rail contract went exceptionally well with excellent closing reports - the 14/5 £400k contract was won from a competitor - the cash pile had increased from 31/3 even before the placing, and REAT are continuing to generate cash, with usually 30 days payment terms - 20%-25% of revenues are delivered by subcontractors, who are audited and fitted out by REAT and effectively treated as employees to fit the high quality ethos - the CFO stated REAT "continues to trade strongly"
