any suggestions for possible buyers ??

the international ops. might help sell the whole co., for some co. looking to add international licensed ops to their own capabilities.

I am convinced major shareholders have lost their patience with the company and instructed the BOD to put the company up for sale. Sold in pieces they should fetch well north of 50p for shareholders. The company is sound with strong finances and a good cash flow, however it is clearly worth more for other players in the sector, than for the stock market.

What's wrong with him? I'm wondering if they are planning on putting the company up for sale.

I know what you mean Smithie6, but personally, I was relieved it's as good as it is given the share price performance - though I did manage to average down at 22.5p, thankfully.

lse:load (Crestchic Plc) has just received a take over offer

Do we think that STM could receive a takeover offer ?!
....is the high cash per share & international presence & wide skill base & financial operation licenses of STM of use/interest to a buyer ?

so, tomorrow.

0.6p, yes ?

total of 1.5p divi in 2022 (0.9p final + 0.6p).
~5% annual divi yield +/-

I think we should get the dividend next Wednesday. A bit of income's always handy when capital gains are hard to come by.

published current mkt price appears to be wrong

'cause I did a test sale & got offerred 29p.
so, the real mkt price is phps 29-30p & not 28-29p.

& phps infers there is someone trying to buy some shares. PG ?

I wonder if the recent tick up in the share price is because PG has started buying again. He seems to have been a bit more active recently in general.

Russman - what you say is there is good potential here but change in leadership required to capture this ? Time for major shareholders to take action then !

STM is cheap but for good reasons.
No growth
Management "in fighting"
Poor strategy execution to date.

Can you put a nice gloss on the interim results ?

I thought that in 2022 we were supposed to see increased profits (& turnover) due to automating various processes in 2021 including new automated client on-boarding for some products.
The cost of this software development & implimentation has reduced profits but that was I thought finished in 2021, giving an extra lift to profits.

but

the recent interim results show a reduction in profit & turnover!!

For some of us who have been holding & waiting for a few years it seems like a donkey & a carrot. The shareholders being the donkey. The carrot being the promised uplift in profits; but which never happens !!

The payback from introducing better software to reduce the labour costs. Never happens imo. Appears as a promise in every annual report.

Completion of software projects to reduce the labour costs. Never happens imo. Appears as a promise in every annual report.

Those facts do not look very good.
Can you put a positive spin on it ??

----
The bank debt at the time of the completion of the acquisition was ~£5.5 million, based on the info in the interims, which includes the completion of the acquisition after the interims.

hmmm

I don't understand your post.
My post is quite clear I think.

----
The new bank loan drawn down for the acquisition will need to be paid back over X years before any higher divi can be paid imo & the gap wrt regulatory capital increased imo.

The bank is now ~£5.5 million.

Don't you agree that the headroom for regulatory cash is currently very tight ?

There will also be cash outflow this year for
- exec. director pay off
- prof. costs for the acquisition
- integration costs
etc

ie. we have to wait longer imo
& we have been waiting for a few years already

hopefully the profit numbers & regulatory cash headroom will improve but any increase in divi would only be ~2-3 years later imo, after building up the headroom on regulatory cash & paying down some/most of the new bank debt.

& the surplus cash production in recent years after paying the current divi is not that exciting,

it will all take some time imo before there is any chance of a 2-3p annual divi.

2-3p divi

dream on imo

cash held vs reqd regulatory cash is tight, very tight, imo, & that 'tightness' needs to be removed imo, by adding some nett cash

can you explain your 50p valuation ?

...since I don't see that pro rata from the acquisition.

Based on their most recent own acquisition, this company is worth well north of 50p - with a very sound balance sheet and strong cash flow, the risk/reward is attractive. They could easily afford to pay 2-3p of dividend.
