Nice update on SDI in this month's SCSW, which concludes as follows: "with cashflow improved and CEO Mike Creedon typically able to buy businesses on PEs of 4, I suspect other deals and upgrades are imminent."

Re posts https://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=29101370&from=1240 and https://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=29101370&from=1241 Where the forward P/E is now 8.5 Today in the Mail Earnings Surge Profits at Uk-listed firms rose 86% to £ 210.8 Billion in the year to june 30th 2018 extending the longest profit growth since the recovery from the financial crisis. The Share Centre said revenues were up 13.6% compared to a year earlier as firms increased profit margins. SDI have beaten the above numbers and also increased their profit margins IMO this current year will result in revenue growth of around 17.5% ... half of last year. In the year ending 30th April 2017 Revenue increased 26% to £10.7m (2016: £8.5m) Profit after tax increased around 42% to £828K (2016: £571K) hTTp://otp.investis.com/clients/uk/scientific_digital_imaging/rns/regulatory-story.aspx?cid=2377&;newsid=990718 Hence I feel my numbers in my two advfn post links are IMO realistic.

Cheers hastings, a terrific and very thorough write-up. Nice conclusion which shows just how good a job the management are doing: "There is also the possibility of a dividend being installed further down the line, which given the boards tone in the past would suggest a progressive path being followed once instigated. No doubt as the year progresses we will hear more from SDI, either on the acquisition front, new product launches or possibly another upgrade, any of which could provide for further momentum in the share price. Having just four years back been seen as an AIM basket case at break even with a market cap of just a few million SDI is now looking like a serious ambitious and growing operation that is now raising more than just a few eyebrows."

........................... SDI Chart Performance ........................... Recently in the last 3 years , the SDI BoD have hit profitability resulting in:- hTTps://markets.ft.com/data/equities/tearsheet/summary?s=SDI:LSE The share price of SDI was around 12.5p in july 2016 The share price Doubled to around 25p in April 2017 The share price came back a bit to around 23p in July 2017 The share price rose circa 80% to around 41p in April 2018 The share price of SDI was around 42p in early july 2018 With increased trading looking very likely in all parts of the company, and with another acquisition due within the next few months ( before end of Dec 2018) 75% increase share price continuation on 42p should IMO result in SDI share price of around 73p in April 2019, which would fall into line with my last 2 posts dyor

............... Some SDI Numbers to Chew Over .............. From last fridays Final results , A 35% increase in Revenue on 2017 final results ''Financial Highlights Revenue increased by 35% to £14.5m (2017: £10.7m)'' resulted in a 95% increase in profit after tax ''Profit for the year 1,615M ................ 828K'' Now ponder those two numbers and carry this sort of relation into the next 2 years In the current year SDI are now in I think an increase in turnover of 50% of the released 30th April 2018 finals is reasonable ie half of 35% = 17.5% This should give rise to circa 47.5% rise in profit after tax of £1.615M + 760k = £2.375M .... lets call this year one Applying the same rise in revenue of 17.5% and profit after tax of 47.5% for the year after that gives £2.375M + £1.116M = £3.491M ... lets call this year two Hence in 3 years time IMO SDI will be throwing off in excess of £4M cash AFTER TAX Even if SDI in the third year had a rise in revenue of 11.8% ( a third of 35%) Profit after tax would be circa 30% more ie in excess of £1M over year two ie Plus £4.49M

I was surprised that with such consistent buying this morning that the share price didn't budge, so pleased to see it move up now. So many positives in the results that have been well covered here, SDI feels like a proper growth stock just like an early version of Judges which I have used as a comparison before. Noticed that Graham Neary (Stockopedia) also used this comparison.

Good to see consistent buying this morning finally leading to a tick up. Wilmdav, Finncap came in with 2.48p adjusted EPS for last year, so I was just slightly closer than you :o))

hTTps://www.stockopedia.com/content/small-cap-value-report-fri-27-july-2018-sdi-jup-g4m-vertical-integration-385829/ All one can say is ''Better late than never then ''. ''quote Small Cap Value "I didn't think I would be saying this, this morning, but I've seen enough now to buy into what SDI management are doing.'' I will be posting next week why IMO SDI will be throwing off over £4M cash in profits within 3 years. Re any comments on shares in issue , now just over 89M shares Since SDI has been making decent profit numbers , the last two SDI acquisitions have been cash. The reason I am invested is that Mike and Ken together with another guy , know how to pick up little gems of companies at a great price. Which is now proving KEY to the success of SDI Growth and MUST continue in the same vein. The HSBC £5M facility IMO is a clear indication of their intention to finance the next two or three acquisitions via that facility plus some cash IMO. If I am correct in my forwards thinking that SDI will be hitting £4M profits (or very close to) in 3 years time , ie April 21 results , then after that date SDI should be able to then pay down HSBC loan rapidly and buy from its own growing cash pile ie year 2022. However there is a problem The problem is , as SDI goes from strength to strength via its Growth strategy , and turnover and profits rise, SDI is IMO going to get acquired itself. Which when it happens will make the Nomads backwards looking forecasts look even more retarded. I therefore urge the SDI BOD to put the pedal to the metal and speed up the acquisition strategy as quickly as assimilation allows. Perhaps two please before the end of this current financial year, and two more the year after. thanks in advance your ardent admirer buywell3 xxX

I am going to update this next week based upon todays results It gets better buywell3 - 27 Apr 2018 - 14:26:26 - 1140 of 1231 SDI - Global & Niche imaging portfolio for scientific & medical users - SDI ................... Time for some numbers ...................... As I have posted recently IMO SDI should hit £1 within 5 years , I said it first (I don't hide my light under any bushel/s) Last Interims Unaudited Interim Results for the six months to 31 October 2017 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, is pleased to announce its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 31 October 2017. Highlights · Revenue increased by 34% to £6,552,000 (2016: £4,902,000) · Revenue growth driven by organic and acquisitions; the organic revenue growth was delivered by Sentek and Atik Cameras with the growth from acquisitions delivered by Astles Control Systems and Applied Thermal Control · Gross margin increased to 67.0% (2016: 63.6%) · Adjusted profit before tax* increased by 140% to £1,089,000 (2016: £454,000) · Profit before tax increased by 106% to £846,000 (2016: £410,000) · Basic earnings per share increased by 53% to 0.98p (2016: 0.64p) · Acquisition of Applied Thermal Control in August 2017 My post buywell3 - 30 Jan 2018 - 08:28:43 - 1059 of 1140 SDI - Global & Niche imaging portfolio for scientific & medical users - SDI SDI second half turnover over 1st half should be another 1M from ATC alone Plus whatever NHS ProReveal orders come in to meet July 2018 DoH date Plus improvements on existing divisions , say another 10% (conservative ) A decent chance to add around 2M to 2.5M in second half over 1st half earnings per share of around 1.25 to maybe 1.5p second half if current Sentek trading carries on the way it is Hence I now think following todays update(which supports the above) , that Turnover for the year should be circa £15.5M , and that earnings per share should now be circa 2.5p a share , not bad eh. But it gets better I posted buywell3 - 31 Jan 2018 - 18:42:35 - 1069 of 1140 SDI - Global & Niche imaging portfolio for scientific & medical users - SDI Let me be the first to give this share the £1 call Assuming the BOD carry on the same way buying one small cap company per year making profits and with little/no debt, in the same way they have for the last 4 to 5 years , that give X selling opportunities and a bigger spread of offerings for clients ... that FIT what SDI do A 10% increase in turnover each year looks doable Profits should be over £4M within 4 years as of now My call for SDI is 100p within 5 years Added today If my £15.5M turnover call for the full year proves correct then 10% uplift yearly equates to around £24.3M ... £4M plus profits look easily doable hTTps://en-gb.calculatestuff.com/financial/compound-interest-calculator BUT if SDI does indeed align itself to the Bioprocess Industry , then 12.5% yearly looks likely ie £27.1M turnover and £6M profits At a P/E of a measly 17:1 this would give SDI a market cap of £102M over 3 times todays Mkt Cap of 33 I think we will see another EU buyer of SDI shares within 6 months IMO The Bioprocess market is hot .... hence the new coolers that ATC have developed will sell well. ''Applied Thermal Control ATC, acquired in August 2017, is redesigning one of its chiller systems to comply with new EU regulations prohibiting the sale of equipment containing fluorinated greenhouse gas from 2022. These new chillers will work in bioprocessing systems and will be tested for use by one of the world's largest suppliers of bioprocess automation. This is a growing market which is also served by our Sentek brand. ATC is a complementary fit to the SDI Group and provides potential areas for growth as ATC can access our European network of dealers to market their products'' ''Sentek Sentek increased sales turnover by 23% in the period, driven by continuing strong sales growth of its single-use electrodes. These electrodes are used in bioprocessing and process analytics applications and Sentek is an OEM supplier to two major life science and healthcare companies. Since sales of the systems made by these companies are increasing globally to pharmaceuticals and biotech customers, sales of the electrodes continue to grow in line. Sentek has also seen growth in demand for its ion selective electrodes as a major UK competitor has ceased trading leaving Sentek as the only UK manufacturer of this type of electrode. To ensure the brand maintains quality and meets production demands, Sentek has leased an additional building to double the size of its manufacturing facility and has recruited additional production staff.'' re our new German Investors , Siemens gets a mention ''Arguably, the real star and seemingly a gem of a buy for the company has come in the shape of Sentek which produces pH conductivity sensors for water based applications. This division saw an impressive 23 per cent increase in revenues to £1.7m which was driven by strong demand from various OEM customers that includes Siemens TAP Biosystems which serves the fast growing bioprocessing segment of the Pharma and Biotech markets.
