One thing I struggle with in relation to these products is that they never really have a 'complete' product Resulting in ongoing research costs etc. If a competitor introduces something new then the fellow competition has to follow to maintain market share. Also, as probably a poor example, OPTI have developed additives to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, and improve gut bacteria to aid weight loss. How long before Joe Public wants those adding to the more traditional supplements? Isn't it a risk it is a never ending circle?

Well the seriously cynical side of me is thinking that this is a big ego trip based on revenue, as that is the thing they have always talked about the most from the start. Perhaps the whole business is about just becoming as large as possible and getting taken over. Or (the cynical side again), getting as large as they can and then cutting back on marketing spend, dropping out a sudden profit, causing the share price to rise rapidly, enabling them to sell the business or dump shares. Its easy enough to slash marketing spend for temporary profits, as long as you're not holding the baby in a couple of years, when the marketing spend cut leads to plummeting sales. Or perhaps there really are big economies of scale to come from manufacturing, because of the big increases in sales.

What a useless RNS, with no worthwhile information. Much more helpful if they actually listed their marketing agreements, said what they were paying for them, and what returns they were getting on their investment. I assume that by spending money on MU, they're expecting a positive return, but they don't say so. How much do MU charge? Are they good value? All unknown, and the full regulatory RNS which is intended to contain financially significant information) does nothing to clarify.

I've still got this on a watchlist, waiting to see if the business model is actually profitable. The issue I think is that they floated in 2013 and losses have more than doubled with double the turnover. So they say that the core business will be profitable at EBIDTA level in the second half (that's UK and EU). So that has taken more than 4 years and it still won't have a clean profit before tax - in fact even more if you take into account that they existed before they floated. So in my book its yet another company that has gone international before its actually profitable in its original market. If its taken this long to get the home market anywhere near profit, the overseas market will take longer. I think if economies of scale were going to kick in, they would have by now. Oh and by the way, the US is absolutely rife with all sorts of nutritional sports products and as everyone knows, there is no legislation on most of them and little technically valid backup on their effectiveness, or any proprietory ingredient mix that is unique, although they all say they are. So it all boils down to marketing and how much you have to consistently spend to keep sales up. The evidence so far judging by the time its taken to get UK/EU to anywhere near profit, is that it takes a huge continual spend. Perhaps they will announce a cut back in spend in UK/EU, but I think that would be risky.

Yes 28% increase in sales is pretty good, lots to come from brand awareness in the USA.

Decent write up in Shares Mag this morning highlighting this as a buy.In an interview with Stephen Moon, Shares Mag confirms the expectation for positive EBITDA this financial year.

I still feel like these guys are buying market share. The deals with USA tri and RnR sound good in principle but i'm not sure it adds profitability. I've used the products (and other brands) for a long time. I'm also aware that almost everyone I know who races (run bike swim or all three) buys their nutrition in bulk when it's on sale. They also have a couple of brands they use and switch depending on which is on discount. No-one pays full price. There is very little brand loyalty. SIS products are always on sale at Wiggle etc. I'm not sure you can make money when you have to spend so heavily on price promotion. I've just had an email from Sportpursuit (like Achica for sports) with up to 63% discount on SIS. Sportpursuit is usually end of line/season clearance products. I'm not sure how SIS can turn market share into profit. It's a very competitive market.

We continue to monitor the situation at Science in Sport in the hope that it may achieve sufficient sales volumes, and manage its costs, so that profitability might finally be achieved. Our latest Blog reflects on recent news..

Results out, revenues up 28% with losses inline. Investing for international growth but expects UK EU to be profitable at EVITDA level in H2.

>battlebusOnly this: "We have had a strong start to the year in a difficult market, and have made very good progress, particularly when many of our competitors continue to face growth challenges."However, am still fairly confident and have done well with SIS. I just think they may be slightly managing expectations downwards.

I have been following this for a while but have reduced my holding in recent months. Odd to see the big director sales earlier in the summer and some caution creeping into their sales updates

I know Reading FC use their products. I just hope that they're all paying for it.

No doubt Yump, profits aren't of major concern as they build revenues and they have a cash cushion but more importantly if they continue to steal market share with increases like we've seen yet at the same time say the sector is in challenging times I'd have though their competitors would be watching closely ;))

I keep looking in here to see if there is ever any mention of profit, but they do seem to be stuck on just reporting sales increases - profit comments now seem conspicuous by their repeated absence. Perhaps there will be a sudden break into profit, surprising everyone and catapulting the share price. Having said that, the revenue levels should give rise to good profits, if the model is viable. I wonder if the idea from quite early on was to concentrate on revenue and market share in the hope of being bought out. They won't say that obviously, but it must be tempting in a fragmented market. The story of consolidating it is a reasonable enough story.
