Time will tell Meganxmas time will tell, an afternoon driving round their sites on the moray firth and a cross reference against their website would prove beneficial to any prospective investor.

No agenda - just stating fact, take a drive round their sites in the North, in Elgin for instance they are building 3 times as much units as the other established developers put together. They are the housebuilding equivalent of JLR, except JLR can hide their unsold stock on runways !!

I'd proceed with caution re SPR. One of my golfing buddies works for them on their sites in the north. Apparently building loads of stock on their sites that remain unsold and they are having to incentivise and discount aggressively, especially in Moray. He reckons they've expanded too quickly and quality has taken nose-dive at the expense of ramping up completion numbers. He's worked with them for almost 12 years and used to speak really highly of them.

Foundation issues, building on made up ground of up to 3 meters, then laying a strip foundations of about 12 inches Frost heave will have an effect in this situation, particularly in the Highlands where the ground is currently frozen and is not even middle of winter as yet

A development with structural issues. I didn't make a note but will try to discover. Will contact off board if I've any success.

Good results, attractive dividend. I suspect margins artificially depressed by Redrow rump sales-where they shared proceeds but didn't pay capital as far as I recall. I expect to see margins lift this year. Can you please remind me what spooked Jimarilo? Thanks,T

Their annual results are out today: https://www.investegate.co.uk/springfield-props---spr-/rns/annual-results/201809180700140471B/ Their gross margin is 15.7%, yet larger UK housebuilders seem to have much larger GMs (CRST, poorly-rated over 30%). Is it the affordable housing which depresses them? But that has the advantage of being more stable income.

Maybe I've misread it then jonwig, many thanks for putting me right. I don't hold yet but it is certainly an interesting company. I particularly like the fact that the senior management hold most of the shares so have a definite vested interest and though there is little information so far, earnings and profits seem to be going in the right direction. With a prospective yield around 5% and little appreciable risk that I can see, it may be a sound investment for the long term for my ISA. Thanks again for your help.

@ warranty - they haven't yet produced annual results: do you have the right company? In the recent acquisition document (May) they say "... it intends to pay a final dividend per Ordinary Share in respect of the year ending 31 May 2018 in line with previous expectations." For information, I sold after the exchange here with Jimarilo. Unfortunately he removed the posts and foolishly I didn't keep a record.

Interesting and growing company this but does anyone know why they didn't choose to pay a final dividend? I can find confirmation from the annual report that they didn't intend to but can't find any reason why?

@ Jimarilo - OK, thanks. When researching property companies, I tend to look for web comments about housebuilders. Some are full of negatives (Keepmoat maybe the worst, but Persimmon figures, too). I found relatively few for SPR, and didn't find this one of course (as it's dated post-IPO). Basically, what I'm saying is that these are sector-wide risks and an occasional bad experience shouldn't negate the investment story. Actually, one potential problem with SPR did cause me to pause when investing: asbestos at Milton of Campsie. I went ahead despite this.

Trading update: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/springfield-props---spr-/rns/trading-update/201807160700056681U/ Not often we get ones which are wall-to-wall good news! @ Jimarilo - well, thank you for that, but a web search suggests you're the only one in possession of this knowledge. Can you provide corraborating evidence? After all there is lots of 'fake news' around. Presumably that's your own picture.

The new NED appears to be a specialist in business expansion. Appropriate, I think.

Haha - living up to the name is a challenge tho! Quiet board here...think this will do really well once it gets on the radars of more private investors and institutions. Potential for significant growth and growing income so should attract both traders and investors.
