Don't let the tw troll diss you fella. Michaelmouses talks about experience or lack of. Laughable when you know his history from investing in frauds and so called growth companies that have to restate profit downwards, cooking books, he love em. Don't take my word for it. Michaelmouse invested in Avanti comms, it ceo committed fraud and boasted about it. INTQ committed fraud and his stupendous growth play TRAK had to restate its accounts after it was caught out with creative accounting practises. Now check the graphs of all of them. hTTps://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=40851473

According to my records,the STL Directors have been both modest and occasional where share options are concerned,with the last grant being way back in October 2015,at an exercise price within spitting distance of both the current and then share price. The conclusions which we draw in respect of this and any other company are both subjective and objective.I seek to benefit not only from my own research but also that of others,whose judgement I respect.It would not be within my remit though to instruct others as to how they should proceed. I look forward to standing under one end of the Stilo rainbow if and when the sun comes out.(as I remain confident that it will) Good luck at York firth.

In your case,I do not firth but it is best to DYOR research and not base investments/gambles on others recommendations in general, as I expect you will agree. For myself, I do not see such a rosy picture, as the directors have repeatedly rewarded themselves with stock while taking moderate salaries - this being a very tax efficient method of reaping longterm rich rewards that they can take when ready, which might be anytime of their choice, which could mean years away, and little true growth in the share price during that time, using the dividend to their own best effect imo.

With a fair wind it looks as though recurring software maintenance revenues might approach or even exceed the milestone £1MILLION mark in the current year;no mean feat considering that these amounted to just £713,000 in 2015. Add to this David Ashman's final words in his Chairman's statement that, "the outlook for Migrate conversion services and OmniMark software remains promising for the remainder of the year",and this could indicate that a more than satisfactory outcome will be evidenced,come March 2018.

The main reasons as to why I am holding Stilo are numerous but amongst these are the following: dividends, growth prospects, unique products, growing list of products, well managed company and its cash pile. Personally, I was very disappointed to read that having posted their 6 month end results so, so early compared to their previous years, the numbers were not as high as I expected. Especially with this 6 month period being posted post brexit I was expecting revenues to be at least be 10% higher. Disappointing to read that profits have fallen back too. Course, operating costs were up by £68,000 though. However, on the other hand, the fact that cash in the bank has again gone up by a healthy £209,000 and dividends are up is fantastic. The excellent cash generation together with the cash pile means that dividends are more or less guaranteed. A certainty really. One thing that management at Stilo do not do is waste a penny on unnecessary research and development costs and the pennies they do spend are only spent on quality products, normally unique products where others can't compete. As we all know they normally use Omnimark for this. Going forward, development costs are going to be capitalised from 2017 onwards so these are of course going to hit the bottom line but with the eventual growth in revenue this will look after itself anyway. Stilo recently announced in their AGM that they would look at making an acquisition and to possibly pay special dividends. Personally I do not see them doing this for quite some time yet. If anything 2019 at the earliest. The only concern I have with Stilo is the timing of when revenue from the new products is going to start rolling in. If the board had their own way both Jats and Author Bridge would be out there now bringing in some decent revenue. But as we all know, and management have reported on this, development time is taking a lot longer than anticipated. Stilo have only just taken on new staff so that they can complete the work necessary to get Author Bridge up and running and lets not forget this has been in development since 2014. It is certainly going to take time to get additional revenues rolling in (12 to 18 months) before we can really see what kind of an impact the new products will have on Stilo's bottom line. For me and any other medium to long term investor this should really not be a problem because this additional revenue will certainly come but like I have said its just the timing that is a little frustrating. Happen it will though! Guaranteed! We all know that Stilo will continue to issue more shares during in the foreseeable future which is unfortunate for all shareholders, especially long term holders but this is just the way it goes with companies like this. Personally, if I had my own way I would wish if this was done less frequently but its just the way it is. In terms of the company being sold on the cheap I don't think this will happen now. I don't think David Ashman would buy around 20 million shares and throw a few million of these to his kids to then have the company sold on the cheap. I also don't see any outfit coming for a company Stilo's size quite yet, especially as they are still developing new products which as we all know take a very huge amount of time to develop, bring to market and then sell. Author Bridge and Jats will provide this additional revenue but on an incremental basis as time goes on. In closing, from my perspective, certain aspects of the 6 month end results were disappointing but in other areas I am more than happy. Can't have my cake and eat it but once Author Bridge and Jats are up and running, hopefully sooner rather than later, we can all then really find out what the bottom line is. In the meantime, I will continue to enjoy my dividends!

michaelmouse, its a shame the stl 1.5% annual divi is not closer to 30%, if it were you may have an investment case. Unfortunately for you it is not and will not prevent further double digit falls. Steve asks good questions, why pay a divi at all and at a mc9m why is it even listed. Bailout placing soon just to pay the divi, r&d and plc costs. bod are using divi payment to pull the wool. I am surprised you have not spotted this trick yet. Its been played before.

Shares in Stilo International (STL) currently trade more than 9% lower today, at just over 7p, on the back of the company’s half year results announcement. This follows them also having fallen by more than 14% following the company’s announcement of 2015 results in March. Hmmm. The latest P&L shows profit increased from a corresponding 2015 period £0.16 million to £0.18 million on revenue 11.5% higher at £0.87 million - and the company notes a 33% increase in the interim dividend per share to 0.04p. However, a 33% increase in the total annual dividend would still only equate to a yield of 1.5% at the current share price and the latest results show, after particularly £56,000 in dividends paid and £83,000 of “development costs capitalised”, only a £75,000 increase in cash. The announcement notes “an uplift in OmniMark sales being offset by a reduction in Migrate revenues” - OmniMark being the company’s content processing platform, though it noting “over recent years, the company has made a significant investment in the development of Migrate, the world's first cloud XML content conversion service”. Yet, it is now reporting “a reduction in Migrate revenues”! The announcement concludes that “trading in 2016 continues in line with management expectations overall… We continue to invest in the development of innovative new products that will serve to underpin our future growth”. Thus, “development costs capitalised” look set to be a recurring feature here – and to be considered in valuation calculations. The market cap is currently just over £8 million – with the balance sheet showing net tangible assets of £1.30 million, including cash (net) of £1.39 million. I’d thus suggest material growth is required from here to justify the valuation and, indeed, the company bothering being stock market listed – and that the noted share price declines on the results, at least partly, reflect the announcements reminding of these. This compares to a May AGM update, for example, eschewing profit and revenue information, whilst including the likes of “following extensive testing by a very prestigious client, it (AuthorBridge, a new cloud XML authoring tool) is now scheduled to be deployed by them in full production in May 2016, representing a significant milestone for the company”. At the current stage here, I avoid.

That is a surprise , as a better look at H1 & H2 2016 , now with H1 2017 added , shows how the fall in underlying sales is accelerating on a constant currency basis . More worrisome than at first glance. Authorbridge can't come soon enough .

On a serious note making statements like, "no catalyst for re-rating until at least H2 2018, probably H1 2019" suggests that you're either one of Advfn's clown traders or highly inexperienced. STL is a micro-cap is every sense of the word. Several events could cause a "major" re-rate e.g. special dividends, trading ahead of expectations, bid for the company, major contract win, acquisition, any combination of the factors mentioned........

No change from the 2016 finals. On a constant currency basis , revenue would have been down 6-8% and net profit reduced to c £50K . Shame on the directors for not fronting up to the underlying sales performance. As noted previously a 6-7p price was too high 6 months ago & the share price looks about right at 5p . Upside if authorbridge performs , downside if the f/x reverts before then . Divi is nice , but no catalyst for re-rating until at least H2 2018, probably H1 2019.

Market cap. is around £4m minus cash. If they do around £288,000 profit this year (double the interim figure but less than last year) then p/e would be around 14. If they pay a final dividend of, say, 0.05p then that's a 2% return pa (and increasing/not to mention a possible special dividend). That's ok for starters. However, operational gearing will kick in during 2018 (start is less than 5 months from now) if AuthorBridge and Migrate JATS are ready for full release. That p/e figure will rapidly change from thereon in. Markets are forward looking. Meanwhile excellent cash generation means progressive dividend policy is virtually guaranteed.

For a company with a market cap of almost 6m less cash, so say 4.5m to only make £142k is not very impressive unless it has huge growth prospects, which STL has proved is beyond its capability based on its history. Bar being sold,when the share rich directors want, in the interim period I can envisage them awarding themselves more options that will dilute other small stakeholders, then selling the business at little premium to its current price. Just looking into the crystal ball based on its past. Remind me what old highs were many years ago and the issue price?

varies - The jam is already on the scone - profitability, cash generation and rising dividends. We're now after the clotted cream that we hope comes in the form of AuthorBridge and Migrate JATS.

I am struck by the high level of R&D : £290K of which £91K is capitalised, which relates to the development of AuthorBridge, and £199K is presumably set against profits. This latter figure amounts to nearly 22% of sales (£910K). Whilst money spent on R&D can often prove to be money wasted, several of my more successful investments (eg Delcam and Sopheon)had similar R&D/Sales ratios and I take this as a good omen here. This looks a good stock to accumulate in the hope that the long-promised jam will materialise in 2018.

That is all well and good but the share price is down from around 8p in Sept 2016 and unless someone makes an acceptable offer for the company, there seems nothing exciting around the corner that will have any marked impact for anyone seeking capital growth, rather than dividend income.
