The number of shares in issue is to rise from c6,400,000 to c8,600,000. This should make them a little easier to deal in.

Cannot buy online. Guess it will creep up on small buys.

I have been a shareholder for many years and a very poor investment this has proved. Prospects look better now and I shall probably take up my One for Seven.

Having almost bought last week, not sure if I have dodged a bullet or missed an opportunity as it reads as though the open offer is only for existing shareholders! I don't have any problem with them raising this sort of money and it should afford them the leeway to increase sales and maybe even look for a small add-on. I remain interested but not holding.

If you look at the share price over the previous two months you can see that this was probably organised when the price was c. 64p. I think the very recent spike in the share price made things look a little silly. Also important to note that they are predicting a free cash generation of at least £470k/ year over the next three years, for a company with a current market cap of £4.26m this looks rather positive. People should also appreciate that in fund raising documents they have to be very careful as to what they say so these figures have to be conservative. Happy to take up my shares (3.75p/share in old BVM money) Edit: strangely enough I was on their web site last night and noticed announcement of four new appointments (14th Dec). I did wonder where the money was coming from, but now I know !!

Apologies , read the conditional placing. 1.3mill far better & hope for investors sake they reap their reward sooner rather than later. I was a holder of BVM for years & in the end although the story was always a good one, things never changed.

As Rivaldo has stated it's a larger discount than ideal but at least the company has provided an Open Offer for shareholders to participate (to a degree) and Ian Martin has also stumped up £200k of the £1.3m.

TU not much more than a week ago & yet no mention of a placing within. Concerns with this mornings rns for me is why not go to your bank & borrow up to the 400k. The amount seems bizarre to say the least, what business with a good reputation/relationship could not go to its bank & borrow such a small amount as & when needed, especially given that Martin's predecessor was held in such high esteem with bvm's bankers. Strange to say the least & this one has me baffled. Either way share price will be hit this morning & will stay at this level until some concrete evidence of more positive news.

Things seem to be going very well here and especially impressive to be picking up new customers. The company looks transformed but isn't 80P just 5p in old money? BVM was trading at 5p (and more) with a much less impressive performance, management and certainly with much less impressive future prospects. A micro-Cap and will go un-noticed until they produce a knockout set of results. On the bright side it is certainly worth a punt at these prices.

News - I like the sound of Tata Steel in particular as a new customer: Http://www.touchstar.co.uk/blog/neworders435 "TouchStar Maintain Their Run Of Successful Client Acquisitions 15 January 2018 Following a strong end to 2017, TouchStar’s Bradford-based warehouse & logistics division continue their successful run of orders and are proud to announce the acquisition of several new clients.

I know they were looking to move offices as their lease is up for renewal this year. Halfway between Manchester and Bradford is cheaper. Manchester office was full even back in late 2016 but Bradford just had a handful of staff. TST remain a top 5 holding for me by value. Pleased with today's update.

Microscope, I'm hoping it's limited to the £128,000 of exceptionals in H1. They were restructuring costs and onerous leases.

Reads extremely well. Looks like the company has really turned the corner and should now gain further traction next year. Just one question as they could have significantly added to or taken away from the final number. Anyone any thoughts on what the 'exceptional' items might be? 'profit, adjusted for exceptional items, after tax expected to be approximately GBP400,000'

As a relatively long standing shareholder I did make a small top up at the bell this morning but then struggled to get anymore before the price ticked up. Certainly the higher gross margins will work wonders if they manage convert the investment in sales resource into increased revenue.

It seems many years since we had any good news from TST and this comes as a great relief to me. The shares look cheap but I suspect that most shareholders of long standing will be reluctant to buy more.

Like rivaldo I am very pleased with these results. I am not only pleased with the immediate financial results but very pleased with the dynamism and innovation that seems to be present in the company. This was my only holding that had net debt (albeit at a small level) these results will probably mean that the debt has gone or is now reduced to an insignificant level. All systems look to be firmly set on GO and the guy in charge certainly seems to know how to run a company. Very happy to hold and enjoy the trip.

Moving nicely now. £400k PAT is a very good result indeed given the below-par H1, and the H2 upturn is very welcome. For a £4.5m m/cap company to introduce and commercialise two new products is a pleasing achievement. And they are selling them. Again, for a company this size to roll out the new Novostar product across the entire Sri Lankan Airlines fleet is no mean feat. The new Podstar electronic system is being rolled out in conjunction with React Transport. React sound established and impressive and should bring with them terrific contacts. Their accounts show £332,000 PAT last year (up from £265,000), and their web site states: Http://www.react-transport.co.uk/about-us/ "Our customer base reads like an A - Z of national and international commerce. Current clients include: Blue chip companies across many industry sectors Shower screen and bathroom product manufacturers & distributors High street retailers Printing companies Specialist computer component manufacturers Furniture manufacturers"

400k not a bad effort, but they operate in a very tough environment. Unfortunately year after year new products barely ever fly off the shelf, as customers within this business seem reluctant to spend their bucks on infrastructure . Update should help support share price in near term.

Indeed - which is in the past. The RNS is showing a present with a much improved - and highly profitable - last H2, and a future with high recurring income, a decent Balance Sheet and two new products coming on stream.

Well, well....an encouraging trading update :o)) £400k PAT for last year is pretty decent value against the £4.3m m/cap. And TST will have made £267k PAT in H2, up from £133k in H1. Average that for this year and add a little growth, and you're looking at say £600k-£700k PAT for 2018. Then there's (a) NovoStar rolling out its front and back office solution across airlines and (b) a completely new product in EPOD also being rolled out from Jan 2nd, crucially in conjunction with a partner, React Transport.
