Should have been BFG but for copyright I suppose Incorporated 8 February 2017 (11 Months Old) So a newbe as far as I am concerned buywell32 Jan '18 - 17:14 - 1003 of 1037 Edit 0 0 0 Many foreign cash rich funds and companies are now circling UK small caps With the £ so low Small Caps making profits with growing turnover and little debt represent excellent value V other locations I hope to see SDI make another small cap buy within cash resources ie circa up to £1.5M after next results in April 2018 SDI might at some point soon be bought instead of doing the buying Till then , keep growth on the up

The RNS re BGF is purely an administrative disclosure due to that change of structure - I've seen several of them today re different companies where BGF's holding is completely unchanged. However, good spot by hastings that their holding has increased slightly since their last disclosure.

It's a rather odd RNS if you read it in detail. It says that BGF held 12.015% both before and after event. Also that the date on which the threshold was crossed was 1st Oct 2017. Under additional info it says: On 1 October 2017, the general partner of BGF Investments LP changed to BGF GP Limited and on the same day such general partner appointed BGF Investment Management Limited to act as its manager which includes exercising all voting rights attached to the shares detailed above. So there was a change of BGF structure in Oct that they failed to notify. No change in the number of shares held. Peter

buywell, Business Growth Fund is not a new investor it came on board firstly prior to the last placing and subsequently took part in that, giving them 10m 769k shares or 12.%. It does however look as though they have upped very slightly to 12.15%

RNS out BGF Investment Management enter stage right with 12%, over 10M shares '' Initial investment of £2m-£10m for a minority stake We only ever take a minority equity stake (10%-40%) in companies that can demonstrate a growth trajectory. And, as a company grows, we’re able to provide additional funding - beyond £10m.'' With a seat on the Board, we offer guidance and expertise yet business owners stay firmly in control. Personally I hope not to see 'loan notes' enter things from this point forwards Will they get a seat on the BOD ? SDI are throwing out enough cash to buy quality small caps within existing generated cash ... which should be circa £2M profit from this year and growing So buying one or two small caps that are making profits and make a 'fit' will take earnings per share higher and make present P/E ratios look derisory after the next set of results. Should see who has sold tomorrow or soon IF SDI want to raise cash for a bigger acquisition Then with current trading and prospects NEVER having looked brighter, the time of discount to share price to raise money has come to an end. I for one would be happy to pay the current share price if the fit and company was a too good to miss one. However I prefer the slower ... addition of cash generating smaller comanies under £1M to £1.5M better Apparently there are quite of few such 'engineering gems' out there hTTps://www.bgf.co.uk/bgf-growth/ ''Funding for growth and equity release Our financial firepower allows us to offer flexible investment structures tailored to individual businesses. We can structure our investments in ordinary shares, loan notes, preference shares or a combination. We’re happy to consider an element of cash-out from our investment for existing shareholders.'' So the time has now come for the SDI BOD to flesh out more long term plans about strategy including possible dividends as previously mentioned. Loan notes .... NO Thanks But if BGF do have £2.5 Billion to invest Perhaps they would like to make an offer for the whole company .... 40p might do it ''Long-term and patient capital, no forced exit We have a balance sheet of £2.5bn, which allows us to make long-term, flexible investments. ''

I missed this at Xmas from SDI's subsidiary Opus Instruments - a couple of interesting quotes in what at face value was simply a bland Xmas message: Https://www.opusinstruments.com/merry-christmas-2017/ "Faster than we could imagine, we’ve found ourselves at the end of another year. It’s been a great one for us at Opus Instruments" "And while we’re on the subject, next year looks set to be a big one for us. Keep an eye out in the first quarter for some very exciting news"

Agreed. I was just indulging a little silliness (see above list of CWD symptoms). I've been in SDI for about a year and very much like the way the company is developing.

Glad to be of service fillspectre! And that it's paid off. As with hastings, I'm mainly in from 8.5p or so with small top-ups since. I'm happy to hold as imo there's substantial upside - potentially multibagger size again if further acquisitions are of companies with recurring income streams and nicely profitable. I'd hope that those acquisitions will also continue to be at bargain prices, since there's apparently a number of such targets in SDI's sector which over time become available for sale from owner-managers who want to retire or earn a final lump sum for retirement. OT : since you ask (!), I don't own too many micro-caps any more. I do believe the smoke signals from SCE are good and that this could be its year. PEG is good value imo following a fall for spurious reasons (loan note conversion). But GAN may have the biggest upside of all if as a market leader it capitalises on the trend in the USA towards legalisation of online gambling (as per Pennsylvania last month). MOGP also look in very good shape for a serious re-rating given all the contract and good trading news it's announced and a mere £4.9m m/cap. It also now has a serious bb following, so any good news should bring about a decent reaction. Also, VENN and AKR are companies which are at rock-bottom in terms of sentiment, so now conversely may be the time to buy....I hold both from higher up, so am very biased :o))

Thanks Hastings. I must be posting on the board somehow wrongly as my post 1019 does not appear on my mobile when I look at the SDI bulletin board. That is why I repeated the posting. What am I doing wrong I thought I was in the current thread that Buywell3 had posted in. The SDI Companies certainly see innovative and not willing to let the grass grow under their feet. Proreveal sucked me in but I agree SDI is much more than just Proreveal but I do think Proreveal sales will grow over time to become a major facet of the Group's revenue stream. Plus it will provide re-occurring revenues. Fils

Hi fils can't argue with your assessment here, so thanks for posting. I've been in since the 8p days of a few years back and continue to hold what is a fair slug for me.I think ProReveal will gain steady traction but it is only a small, although potentially very nice piece of the story.The rise here has been steady but nice over the last 18 months as it is still somewhat under the radar.That could well change this year as the company is now driving forward with growth both organically and through shrewd and enhancing acquisitions.

Statement re. potential small acquisition Scientific Digital Imaging Plc 04 January 2018 Scientific Digital Imaging plc, the AIM quoted group focused on the design and manufacture of scientific and technology products for use by the life science, healthcare, astronomy, consumer manufacturing and art conservation markets, announces that it is in negotiations regarding a potential small bolt-on acquisition to complement the Group's existing Atik Cameras brand. The potential acquisition currently under consideration envisages SDI acquiring the trade and certain assets including camera designs, stock and brand names of Quantum Scientific Imaging, Inc. ("QSI"). Total consideration would be expected to be less than £300,000. There can be no certainty that the potential acquisition will go ahead, nor as to the final terms or timing. A further announcement will be made as and when appropriate. This is an American outfit Which means possible cross selling opportunities direct into the US of A for ATIK products and perhaps other SDI products ATIK sales should now accelerate as a result World-Class Manufacturing in the USA QSI 600 Series MachiningQSI is employee-owned and proud to design and build world class scientific cameras in the USA. QSI’s headquarters and manufacturing facility is located in southern Mississippi, not far from New Orleans and NASA Stennis Space Center. Engineering facilities are located in California and Mississippi. Circuit boards are manufactured in Oregon. Most sensors are manufactured by Truesense Imaging (formerly Kodak) in Rochester, NY. Metal machining is done locally using Haas CNC mills manufactured in Oxnard, California. hTTp://www.qsimaging.com/qsi-us-mfg.html

Nice to hear ... and it is always good to read phrases like ''bolt on'' and words like ''complementary'' One would imagine existing customers/clients of Quantum Scientific Imaging will soon present x selling opportunities for those of Atik whilst giving the Atik brand some extra depth that will further enhance turnover. SDI BOD .... nice one Being a greedy b@stard, I urge you to keep on trucking and find us another £1M add on before 2018 ends please. many thanks buywell3 Statement re. potential small acquisition Scientific Digital Imaging Plc 04 January 2018 Scientific Digital Imaging plc, the AIM quoted group focused on the design and manufacture of scientific and technology products for use by the life science, healthcare, astronomy, consumer manufacturing and art conservation markets, announces that it is in negotiations regarding a potential small bolt-on acquisition to complement the Group's existing Atik Cameras brand.
