H.C. Slingsby plc.

This £18m T/O company's principal activity is the supply and manufacture of commercial and industrial equipment covering materials handling, storage, access, safety, security, packing, and dispatch, cleaning, waste, food service and office fixtures. The manufacturing division produces a variety of products encompassing handling, storage, and access equipment and many purpose built items.

For 6 months to June 2002, profits were slightly down because of lower sales in 1st quarter, but by the time interims were announced orders levels had recovered and were approaching the previous year's cumulatives.

Also recent director buying - the chairman increased his holding by 50% (albeit they were shares the company pension fund were forced to sell because it had reached the 5% of scheme funds limit). Closely held shares 22%

There is a problem with the large spread when buying the shares, but I don't think it should put long term investors off.

Results due end of April for year to December 2002.
