I've just received another reason for today's rise - SDI has been tipped today on email by Regency Capital as "The great British science stock you've never heard of", offering "growth at a very reasonable price". If you register you can get the 3 page report for free. I suppose all PR is good PR..... Https://regency.capital/complete/aim-investor/3323/

Agree, excellent research, thank you very much. The share price action is more likely the impact of Boris agreeing a Brexit deal with the EU though

Wanted a high level texty summary article for the SDI investment case to link to the header here so have penned a piece that hopefully will be published tomorrow on another site as a host. Doesn't capture everything, and not enough around the individual businesses, but could possibly do more in the future

Yes some, of the 3 companies presenting Mike kicked off 1st and had to leave straight after so my plan to ply him with wine and extract amazing revelations fell at the 1st hurdle :-) Barged onto his table for 10 mins beforehand though so had a brief shared chat. He'd traveled up via Leicestershire and was handling the move of Thermal Exchange & Applied Thermal Control into new premises in Barrow upon Soar from Leicester & Coalville. This should now happen in November rather than October as previously planned. Random thoughts through presentation/Q&A Atik Sales Director Jason Evans tasked with securing new OEM customer 2 new technical sales staff at Sentek Restructuring of pay grades upwards at Graticules has re-motivated workforce. Previously very poorly paid with minimal differentials between skilled & un-skilled staff. Not expensive to achieve. Peter Astles helping MC part time (3 day week) on due diligence. Acquisition sweet spot £500k - £1m EBIT, recent smaller acquisitions carried out as Thermal Control/ATC could be combined, Fistreen & Ionscope moved into Synoptics. Not sure on rationale for MPB as that also below the £500k threshold. Sensed Mike becoming more growth orientated in acquisition target selection, seems to have been influenced by city & investor calls for higher organic growth. Acquisition leads from various sources including the ex Judges barrister, some PE contacts who are primarily interested in larger co's for themselves and recommendations from acquired businesses (which has led to the synergies) Net Debt coming down from the year end £1.6m and I wouldn't be surprised to wake up to an 7am acquisition RNS though no real hints from Mike in that direction (as you'd expect).

Not concerned by it at all but interested to here their response and view on how they stave off adverse selection when it comes to acquisitions? What proportion and number of deals are they turning down? How strong is the pipe? What would be their top 3 criteria they look for in an acquisition? Then separately, currently they're focusing on digital imaging and sensors and controls. Are there any other niches or areas they would like to build out capability in/around? Thanks

Running some numbers, looks like this previously peaked at c. 18.1x next twelve months earnings in August 2018. Peak this year closer to 17.5x. Trough in January 2019 was 12.7x. Currently at 13.4x. What do each of those other levels imply? 12.7x = 47.9p 17.5x = 66.0p 19.1x = 68.2p By comparison, JDG's pretty crazy trough in December last year was a multiple of 14.1x, currently re-rated massively to 21.5x and am sure there's an element of earnings forecasts there being too low still etc. Hopefully adds a bit of colour just where we're trading on a market sentiment basis

Agreed, Synoptics back then accounted for some 75% of turnover and was at best break even.In much better health these days, turned around and profitable with some excellent tech products.All in all they've done a great job across the board, particularly as they have achieved this after the failed reverse back in 2013.

The rise in shares in issue was due to original business Synoptics not being profitable or cash generative imo. To grow by acquisition they needed to either issue shares or borrow.They're in much better shape now as they've skilfully bought cash generative companies allowing them to self fund acquisitions to a much greater extent.
