Results end of August! RNS Number : 4874F Rotala PLC 25 April 2014 14% rise in Divi CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT "As the company matures I expect the dividend to be progressive" Contracted Services Revenues in Contracted Services overall fell by 8.5% to £20.6 million (2012: £22.5 million). The cause of almost all of this reduction in revenue was the loss in April 2013 of the two route diagrams we operated up to that time for National Express Limited ("NEL"). In our view NEL breached their contract with us by their actions. Therefore we have commenced legal proceedings against NEL to recover our losses. This case is expected to come to trial in the last quarter of 2014. In these accounts we have written off as an exceptional item £364,000 of our losses, which form part of our claim against NEL. Looking beyond this exceptional event, we experienced continuing strong growth in our private bus networks business. Revenues from these contracts have increased by some 50% over the last two years and we remain positive about this part of our activities. As might be expected from the drive of government policy, local authority transport budgets have continued to be under pressure. Revenues from the local authorities we deal with in the South West and West Midlands have therefore declined when compared to those of 2012, though we have not yet seen any similar pattern in Preston. The overall effect of these market changes over the last few years has been to re-position our Contracted Services business away from such a considerable exposure to the ebbs and flows of local government finance to be more focused on privately contracted bus services with major corporate customers. 2 June 2014 ("Rotala" or "the Company" or "the Group") Settlement in respect of legal proceedings against National Express Limited ("NEL") Following the loss of two route diagrams operated on behalf of NEL, referred to in the Company's results for the 2013 financial year, Rotala commenced legal proceedings against NEL for breach of contract and wrote off an exceptional item of £364,000 in respect of this action. Rotala is pleased to announce that it has reached a full and final settlement with NEL of its claim against NEL in terms satisfactory to the Company. Directors' Dealings Rotala has been notified of the following Director's Dealings which occurred on 8 May 2014: John Gunn, the Non-Executive Chairman of the Company, has, together with his wife, purchased 1,050,000 ordinary shares of 25 pence each in the Company at a price of 50 pence per share. Following this purchase John Gunn has an interest, directly and indirectly, in 10,571,837 ordinary shares of the Company (being 29.97 per cent. of the shares currently in issue). Let's see what the results in August will bring !

Is a lot of that debt tied up in the vehicles so there is some equity battlebus2? Otherwise c£27m debt sounds rather a lot compared to a £2.5m PBT forecast this year?

I posted this on a couple of other sites but thought i should post it here also.... My latest scan of the market has uncovered Rotala. If your looking for a steady boring share that pays a 3% dividend and progressive and has potential for growth then look no further. Rotala is listed on AIM and whose group of companies are in the business of bus, coach and transport management.In Preston they are the number one operator. It's the second largest operator in the areas of Bristol and Bath and the West Midlands. They operate 530 buses employing 1200 staff. Since floatation Rotala has acquired several businesses including Flights Hallmark,Flights Corporate Transfers ltd,Central Connect, North Birmingham Ltd, Diamond Bus co Preston, Ludlows of Halesowen and Gloucester bus and coach company. Given the consolidation in the sector and the difficulties of smaller operators to maintain the increasing regulation hurdles i would certainly expect to see this trend continue. We also have a couple of top investors as major holders, J.Gunn with 26.99% and Nigel Wray with 14.02%. Current market cap of 18.16 million looks very undemanding. From the last results PBT was up 5% to 2.19 million while revenues did fall due to the loss of two routes run on behalf of National Express but legal proceedings have commenced to recover those losses. Their balance sheet isn't a bad read either with assets of 50.8 million and liabilities of 27 million. NAV is currently 66p. Dividend is covered at present 3.39 times so room for further increases.. The company paid an interim dividend of 0.55 pence per share in December 2012. At the forthcoming Annual General Meeting the board will recommend a final dividend in respect of 2013 of 1.05p per share, making 1.60p for the year as a whole. The dividend will be paid, subject to shareholder approval at the Annual General Meeting, on 27 June 2014 to all shareholders on the register on 6 June 2014. As the company matures I expect the dividend to be progressive. The board is conscious of the importance of dividend flows to shareholders and has set a target dividend cover of 2.5 times earnings, to which it will move as underlying earnings and free cash flows improve. The outlook is also positive with fuel costs hedged until 2015 and the impact of the purchase of certain assets belonging to First in Worcester will become fully operational in 2014. As with every share there are risks but imv Rotala is worth a punt.
