Rivaldo, thanks for that but perhaps you could explain the reason/background for the meeting. Good detail given in the report but you did seem to damn with faint praise and I'm pretty sure that was not your intention. Your current reluctance to buy at this time may be due to the investment you have already made but could I ask if you would buy if your current holding was say half of what it is now ? I don't usually concern myself with other people's share dealings but this is my attempt at getting a better idea of your views after this visit.

Thanks, very much appreciated. If and when funds become available, I will add as I see this at a rock bottom price given where the company is at present. Certainly at the very least a strong hold.

Anyone attending the roadshow on the 09th and 10th Oct? Looks like they want to highlight the progress made after the half year results. I am trying for the 10th.

With increase in revenue and a significant reduction in R&D costs, they could have some disposable cash in coming years. A 2% dividend at the current market cap will cost them only around £70k. Ian needs to get on the road to sell the story.

Great note from WH Ireland. As I said recently, "those prepared to invest here even with the all to often wide spread, will likely have 100% gain 6/12 months out".

I thought the interims were pretty encouraging. The company is obviously on the right path now, it's just a question of time as to how fast the transformation wrought to date reaps real profitability and dividends. I don't think anyone's posted any of WH Ireland's note post-results, so here's a couple of extracts: "Today’s H1 results show a pleasing +16% increase in revenue to £3.6m (+19% stripping out the discontinued On Board business) driven by Touchstar’s next-gen products against what remains a challenging market backdrop. As a result, the loss before tax has reduced materially y-o-y to £224k (excluding exceptionals) from £592k a year ago. Given the usual H2 weighting, the H1 outcome puts TST well on the way to achieving our FY forecasts which we leave unchanged this morning. Key takeaways Today’s 16% increase in revenue halts the decline seen in the last financial year (FY revenue -12%) and is down to a large part to take-up of some of TST’s next-gen products and services. This is against a challenging market with the on/off Brexit saga leading to protracted sales negotiations not just in the mobile computing segment but across many sectors. Note that the 16% increase is slightly stronger than the 14% Q1 growth reported at the time of the FY results in May. Gross margin improved from 48.2% to 51.9% reflecting less hardware and more high quality software/full solution in the mix. Impressively, the proportion of recurring revenue has also increased and represented approximately one third of revenues during H1. Cash dwindles in H1 but should turn positive in H2 The balance sheet showed a net debt position of £204k at the end of June (reflecting cash payments for redundancies as part of the restructuring) but this will improve during H2 due to the receipt of a substantial tax reclaim from HMRC (delayed from H1 due to a processing backlog) in August amounting to £456k. On the way to achieving FY forecasts On an adjusted basis, ie stripping out the c £300k of exceptional reoraginsation costs, losses before tax more than halved from £592k to £224k. This is a function of the improvement in gross margin but also the operational gearing effect of a lean cost base. The £3.6m revenue outcome represents 46% of our FY £7.9m forecast – given the historically second-half weighting nature of the business, this puts the business well on course to hit our full year numbers. WHI view TST is half way through its three year turnaround. The H1 numbers show a return to revenue growth and should give confidence that all key metrics are moving in the right direction. Cash should also turn positive in H2 leaving a business with revenues of approaching £8m having an EV of ~£3m, an exceptionally low rating for a technology stock."

Well, If Ian is excited, then it should be looking positive.

One of the key feature of BVM (now TST) was that it could't make a loss, at least in the short term, as the recurring income was greater than the running costs. One of the points about TST which I feel is not emphasised enough is that the business model is very heavily slanted towards royalties and recurring payments. We have a time lag between the old revenue stream being discontinued and the new one coming in but the recent results did point to 1/3 of income from recurring payments. Heavy investment being made, contracts being signed but I don't think enough credit is being given to the long term income from these contracts. On another topic. Some may remember that in the final results the company pointed out that Microsoft were no longer supporting certain products and this could be of great advantage to TST. I think this shows up in the recent danish contract. I consider that things are looking very positive for the company.

Varies, ask is 50p and it is NT to buy 5000 shares.

I have just been looking at the Morningstar web-site. This shows no trades today and trades amounting to about 30,000 shares yesterday with recent averages being much less. I do not know how reliable this is but, if it right, then the market in TST shares can hardly be said to be over-heated ! it also shows a spread of c.7% (43-46)which is lower than it has been recently. This is not a share for trading and I am holding on indefinitely in the hope of my recovering my losses of about 50%.

I was here when JK was around and exited once he went almost. However, those who have followed bvm tst over the years will want to see facts of profit once again. Martin I feel is the right guy and for once has provided bullish comments that we are likely to reap the rewards of having bought in at levels lower than today's price. Unfortunately I have not enough funds to try a dummy trade, but that may well give an indication of buy levels

I reckon if we get a few buys at 50p, the bid will move swiftly to around 47p-48p. Recall Ian bought £200k at 60p.

Once again the spread will put most off. However, the corner has been turned and I expect if the economy allows businesses to thrive after brexit then rewards could be sky high.

Good to see the 10k sell - it should help with the liquidity. Still no buy quotes available.
