Doesn't take much to knock this, I'm presuming that 28k at 360p was a sale first thing.

Did the rules on what information companies have to provide change a while ago? I just have a very vague recollection that STY used to provide certain information, but then stopped because they weren't obliged to provide that info any longer?

Kazoom, I think that would be an excellent idea. hopefully they will take your suggestion on board. The vast majority of companies do provide a trading update soon after the year end.

It could be that the free float is so small, that ordinary holders are not valued, I'm guessing that the large holders have other lines of communication other than just rns notices? I too would like to see a simple end of year update, given as you say, the likes of Carrilion in difficulties.

I certainly approve of Directors focusing on managing the business rather than managing the share price. However, I don't think it would be too distracting for them to be a little more forthcoming with announcements. I suppose one can hold to the view that as they are obliged to inform the market if performance will be materially different to expectations, so in that sense no news is good (or actually neutral) news. Trouble is that such comfort only holds up to the day of a profits warning! Looking back I'd referred to the fact that we didn't get a FY trading statement until the beginning of April this year (and the results themselves at the end of that month. And in 2016 there was no pre-close announcement at all (although the results themselves were at the beginning of April). Whilst in 2015 they did give an update in Feb (although the results were not until June). I can perhaps understand them wanting 3 or 4 months to finalise the results (5 seems a little excessive), but with the FY ending in December it wouldn't seem unreasonable that they could give a view in Jan or Feb, particularly given the uncertainties in the sector caused by he likes of Carrilion & Interserve. I think I might write to them suggesting the same.

Trigger Blade, I've held them from 54p telling my self I would sell at 600p, ooh my greed has served me badly, should have dumped above 500p and bought back in! I'm impressed with the turnaround, and with the skilled choice of buying other service providers, so that this is not just another shop fitter, but a one stop solution for the efficient management of a commercial property portfolio. I would like to see them get rerated as a comprehensive service provider, and a divi (when they can manage it) would be nice :¬)

lefrene, A few years ago, about 2009 I think, I was told by a director of JHD, in answer to my question as to why the company was valued so low at that point, that if they kept doing the right things, the share price would take care of itself and he was absolutely right. Maybe the directors of STY take a similar view, let's hope for a similar outcome :-)

I agree kazoom, the company doesn't seem much interested in it's market valuation, I suppose it's the other side of the coin from the early days when it was in the hands of spin merchants, who talked the talk but failed to do the walking. Whereas now the walking is happening but not much talking going on. Probably for the best, the company is mostly in the hands of big holders with a limited free float. I would guess those big holders have an exit plan/value in mind? On the face of it, it does look very cheap at the current price..

Not sure what there is to say really. One of the frustrations here is how long we (probably) have to wait for any material news. Interims were two months ago showing outlook "in-line" but now based on last year we have a further 3 months to wait for any more news. So it strikes me any moves in either direction at the moment are quite speculative.

Yes a business that is evolving to have a spread of complimentary services and a range of income streams. Much of the hard work has been done, it's beginning to look ripe for a predator to steal it on the cheap!

I would like to see an end of year trading update, just to reassure investors that their debtors are paying up. This business looks cheap, I hope the demise of Carillion helps the industry.

Not sure about the industry as a whole but there appears to be a focus at STY of concentrating on better margin areas of work. The Department for Works & Pensions has a £375 fit-out/build framework that is due to start in April 2018. I'd imagine STY will be seeking a place on that. hTTp://www.eastmidlandsbusinesslink.co.uk/mag/property/department-work-pensions-375m-framework-opens-bidders/

RP19, I wonder if Carillion unravelling will improve margins across the whole sector? Anecdotes imply that Carillion was 'buying work' and then short changing their suppliers, simply chasing volume, pretty much the same tactics that very nearly brought STY to grief. Being in framework schemes certainly can't do any harm, their reputation for bringing things in on time and to budget must be getting noticed. If Carillion gets broken up, then their ongoing projects will need reliable businesses to step in. There must be quite a few who would be happy to see it gone.

Good link - nice to see that STY have made it onto various lots of the ESFAs school building framework. Obviously no guarantees of work with frameworks but there would appear to be a decent bit of work to go around.

This looks like a business that's doing ok, it looks cheap, so I can't help but wonder why people are selling it, unless of course they are selling simply because the price is drifting down? Styles & Wood First Half Performance Boosted By Acquisitions [ 29 Sep 2017 11:27 ] LONDON (Alliance News) - Property services and project delivery company Styles & Wood Group PLC saw its first half revenue rise and profit more than double, with growth driven by a positive impact from acquisitions. Its revenue for the first half, which ended June 30, rose 18% to GBP55.5 million from GBP47.1 million and pretax profit rose to GBP867,000 from GBP407,000. Styles & Wood said revenue was aided by contributions from the acquisitions of Keysource Ltd in September last year and The GDM Group Ltd in January. Styles & Wood paid an initial GBP1.0 million cash payment for Keysource with up to GBP5.0 million of deferments payable in cash in shares subject to performance criteria in the three years up to December 31 2018. GDM was acquired for an initial consideration in cash and shares of GBP4.0 million with a potential deferred payment of up to GBP3.1 million in cash subject to performance in the three years leading up to the end of 2019. The company said both acquisitions have performed well in the year to date, significantly enhancing not only its customer service offering but also in earnings, with further potential growth expected. Strong revenue growth in the company's professional services division to GBP30.2 million from GBP19.0 million was offset by contracting services revenue falling to GBP18.6 million from GBP27.5 million. The drop in contracting revenue was primarily due to timing issues regarding two major projects' scope and delays in planning. These delayed start dates mean revenue in this sector will be heavily weighted to the second half of the year. Facility services revenue rose to GBP6.7 million from GBP538,000 the year before. Styles & Wood said current order book and trading forecasts remain in line with management expectations for the full year, with new framework appointments and major project wins due to provide further growth going into 2018.
