Back in here at 200p. Looks like last years troubles are well behind them now. Hopefully a long term hold that I will gradually add to.

I have had a few more today. If they can get margins c35/40% again, which surely is the aim with the Flex deal then this will become a huge cash cow over the next 2or 3 years. We are set for another long period of growth.

Guys Iamnotanumber is a fantasy trader, he hand picks stocks he thinks will get him recognised across boards, and pretends he is invested in them, it's a shame I really feel for him!

Agree Harrogate & Masurenguy. Positive results statement & outlook. New products launched; further distribution agreements signed (German retail); Home Connected moving ahead; Flex manufacturing & supply agreement progressing to plan; margins improving & dividend held. The next 12/18 months look v exciting to me. Not much further to say. Well done to the Sprue team! Kind regards, GHF

Looking ok I would say. Had hoped they might be underpromising for this year but looks in line. It is all about the belief that post the move to own supply they can be what they say they want to be. They sound very bullish on that and I think they can do it but there could be a few halves of figures with lots of things going on - these transitions are not that easy, however good the management. Dividend keeps us happy for now

Had a quick look at this month's Which - one of the Fire Angels is a Best Buy, but the other 2 tested were much lower down the rankings, albeit not in the "Avoid" category.

Small uptick this am on the back of that new product launch rns. Interims due 25/9. RSI well oversold; near bottom of slowly rising trend channel in place since Q2 2016. Would've thought a good probability that it will continue to bounce from here in anticipation of interim results.

Sprue Aegis plc 07 September 2017 Launch of UK's first battery-powered Natural Gas Alarm Sprue (AIM: SPRP), one of Europe's leading developers and suppliers of home safety products, today announces the launch of the UK's first battery-powered "Natural Gas Detector", a major new product innovation for the Company, under the Group's FireAngel(R) brand. The FireAngel(R) Natural Gas Detector is uniquely powered by replaceable batteries and is simple to use as a portable or freestanding device. Designed and independently tested to meet the European standard for domestic combustible gas detectors (BS EN 50194), the unit features a semi-conductor catalytic sensor that continuously detects combustible gas plus "smart" test, silence and reset buttons for ease of use. The FireAngel(R) Natural Gas Detector extends the Group's product range and broadens Sprue's potential addressable market to more than 300 million households in mainland Europe and over 25 million in the UK alone. Not only is natural gas explosive, it can also cause death by suffocation and its presence is not always detected. Graham Whitworth, Executive Chairman of Sprue, commented: "The FireAngel(R) Natural Gas Detector is an excellent example of how Sprue's focus on new product development and innovation can create expanded market opportunities for the Company. With the use of natural gas increasing, customers want a simple, battery-powered device to alert them to the dangers of natural gas either whilst in or out of the home. Sprue remains committed to the development of pioneering home safety products."

Paul Scott is also positive on todays Sprue update ! "I was a a bit too cautious on this fire alarm manufacturer as the recovery continued and the share price has made great gains. It's now nearly double the April 2016 low. (The high in 2015 was 350p). Issues with suppliers and overstocking caused the problems in 2016, and appear to have been dealt with. As such, the full year result is expected to be in line with expectations. Sounds great. The problems did indeed prove to be temporary. The operating profit figure is a bit misleading, however, as the company routinely adjusts for share based payments. It should stop doing this, in my view (or pay bonuses in cash instead of shares). Sprue has been investing for the future and remains on track for its longer-term ambitions. The StockRank is 74, thanks to good contributions from Quality and Momentum. Value is a bit thinner and indeed I'd argue that the positive EPS Growth and low (cheap) PEG ratio below don't help, as last year's results were artificially lower (based on one-off problems). If you trust the company, it could still be worth paying up for, of course. Maybe it's a QARP stock (quality at a reasonable price)?"

Morning GHF - you're absolutely right ('red face') I picked it up from their website without checking the date. I've now replaced it with todays announcement. Thanks for the Westhouse update - all looks to be on track for further peogress this year. :-)

Morning Mas - Think you've copied over the wrong trading update....one posted refers to 31.12.2016 performance. --- Yes, I would sum up this morning's update as, "steady as she goes". Westhouse confirm their BUY rating in a brief note which reiterates forecasts of £4.6m PBT & 9.1p EPS for the current year & +30% earnings growth in 2018. Importantly, they confirm a 9.0p dividend in 2017 rising to 10p next year. "Following a strong start to 2017 Sprue is on track to deliver adjusted PBT for the year in line with market expectations as the increased profitability and reduction in overheads continue to lift margins. We believe the favourable movements in the currency markets seen in H1 are also likely to have a tailwind effect as the weakness of Sterling v ersus the Euro and strengthening of Sterling versus the Dollar continues. In our view, this could positively impact results, particularly if the Euro continues to strengthen." Kind regards GHF

Positive update Sprue (AIM: SPRP), one of Europe's leading developers and suppliers of home safety products, today issues the following trading update for the six months ended 30 June 2017 ("H1 2017"). As announced on 15 June 2017, Sprue has made a positive start to the year and for H1 2017 expects to report sales of approximately GBP26.0m (H1 2016: GBP25.9m) and operating profit* of approximately GBP1.5m (H1 2016: operating loss of GBP0.9m before share based payments charge). The strong return to profitability has been achieved through a significant improvement in gross margin and a net reduction in overheads. The Group remains well positioned to deliver full year adjusted operating profit in line with market expectations. The new manufacturing and distribution arrangements announced on 31 March 2017 continue to progress well. The Board believes that these transformational initiatives will further strengthen the Group's offering in its key markets across Europe and greatly enhance the Group's ability to accelerate growth and maximise shareholder value in the medium to longer term. A further update on trading will be provided at the time of the release of the Company's H1 2017 results, which are expected to be announced on 25 September 2017. *Operating profit in H1 2017 is stated before share based payments charge of GBP0.2m (H1 2016: GBP0.3m)

Encouraging results today. In Line update with very positive medium term outlook. Marked up at the Bell by MM's but a little PI selling Has taken the share price down a little. A familiar story for small growth stocks recently but should begin to move up over the next few days as positive press comments emerge.

Emailed the company last week pointing out that the detail on their Financial Calendar webpage was woefully out of date & gives v poor impression. No response, calendar not updated with some references back to 2015. Disappointing.HTTP://sprueaegis.co.uk/investors/financial-calendar/

Yes Mas, very pleasing. Well done to GW & team. Stockdale have provided a brief note which confirms a reassuring AGM update & indicates, "Sprue is on track to deliver a much-improved financial performance in H1 2017 and to meet full-year market expectations at this stage. The improvement is a result of better gross margins and lower costs. Recent currency movements would provide a tailwind to forecasts if sustained. In our view, Sprue remains well-positioned to improve sales in Germany in 2017 and benefit from the ending of its agreements with Newell from March 2018. With the strong balance sheet and a 4.6% dividend yield, we retain our 250p TP and Buy rating." They are forecasting that Sprue will end 2017 with £9m-£10m net cash. Kind regards, GHF

Positive news ! RNS Number : 1167I Sprue Aegis plc 15 June 2017 AGM Statement Sprue (SPRP), one of Europe's leading developers and suppliers of home safety products, is holding its Annual General Meeting today at which Graham Whitworth, Executive Chairman, will make the following statement: "Sprue has made a positive start to the year with an expected strong return to profitability in H1 2017 building on the steady progress delivered by the Company in the second half of 2016. The combination of a significant improvement in gross margin and a net reduction in overheads is expected to contribute to a much improved financial performance by the Group in H1 2017 compared to H1 2016. Despite the recent modest currency fluctuations (Sterling v US Dollar and Sterling v Euro), the Group remains well positioned to deliver full year adjusted operating profit in line with market expectations. The new manufacturing and distribution arrangements announced by the Company on 31 March 2017 are progressing well. These transformational initiatives will further strengthen our offering in the key markets we serve across Europe and greatly enhance our ability to accelerate growth and maximise shareholder value in the medium to longer term."

That's a good deal for the buyer: two alarms for £6, including VAT and delivery. I guess that they have stock obsolescence issues. Batteries will very likely have lifetime limits, even in storage, prior to connection. I suppose they're probably selling twin packs for about £2.00 before VAT, and out of that they need to cover incremental distribution and warranty expenses. That's economically better than dumping the stock, and there may be some such activities required for difficult to shift lines. Look forward to trying the alarms when they arrive.
