Pavey Ark I am so pleased to see that you take a less gloomy view than most of us.

Bit of a band waggon thing going on here. I am certainly not overly disappointed in these results but then again I've spent some time going over the figures and reading all the announcements for the last two years.( I know I should keep up but I decided last year to simply let thing go and see where the company gets to) It is the case that this company disappointed fairly regularly under the previous management but the new guy did point out when he took over what was needed to be done and we can see that he is heading in the right direction. Just a snippet from the old BVM days: the crucial turnover figure was always c. £7m-£8m as this figure always covered costs and produce a profit (albeit a variable and sometimes disappointing profit). I suspect this figure is still a critical one so if this guy can get T/O above this then most of the profit goes to the bottom line. Still happy to hold especially when they can still generate free cash and reduce their already small level of borrowing. Edit: The onboard airline retailing looked good. hxxp://www.onboard-retail.com/blog (remember to change xx to tt )

We all seem to agree that TST is a perennial disappointer but it is at least solvent and Mr. Martin may bring it into profit one day. Yet another stock to keep at the back of the drawer.

Exactly how many times has this company failed to deliver. Although CEO has some balls, it seems it operates in a non stop challenging market where disappointment comes on a more regular basis than any signs of a decent profit. My view is at best Martin will take it private or a buyer may make a surprise bid. Worth a punt on a 2 year view at best.

I sold my thimble full just after the bell @ 72p I'm sure they'll get there in the end, but I'm trying to focus on trimming "dead money" positions & this was only ever a place marker for me to follow events more closely. I'm likely to buy back in greater size once I can see the new product gaining traction...on the plus side they didn't blame Brexit ..did they🤔

Bit of a rush this morning so only a quick scan of the results and nothing really to bother me. Back in and had a more detailed look and they still look sound with nothing to cause me any concern. This guy said right from the start that there was work to be done and has put plenty of his own cash in. Recurring revenue has always been the real strength here and now we have:- Stronger, more focused management. New products. Low gearing. Still generating cash. The second half has always been much stronger and I expect this will be the case again. The company has a plan and is working through it and at the same time there is no stress or problems with the balance sheet. I'm happy to hold and let them get on with things. The share price may bounce about but I'm not concerned about the underlying business.

Frustrating and disappointing to an extent however this was never a one way bet. I hold most in my SIPP for the long game. Highly respect the chairman who owns a lot of stock himself. No stock available online to buy at present but liquidity there to sell.

I don't hold (sold after 1st warning). Commiserations to holders. WH Ireland indicate, "The H1 outcome, combined with challenging outlook for H2, means the business is trading below our previous expectations. As a result, we have re-based our numbers based on FY revenue of £8.0m (simplistically 2x the H1 actual) and allowing for increased costs in H2. This gives a FY PBT expectation of £100k (from £600k)" --- Like microscope I'll wait for signs of growth before considering an investment. Kind regards GHF

I'm not so sure it's overdone, 2 consecutive profit warnings in the same calendar year are hardly 'bumps in the road' are they? More like 'Major hurdles' Still holding and prepared to wait a little longer.

The drop is overdone imho. It will bounce back. Off topic, take a look at PRS. I've posted some interesting research on the bb. https://uk.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=890180

Profit warning “I would expect trading conditions in the second half to remain challenging, we will fall below the expectations we had at the beginning of the year”.

The Chart is just starting to look a little more interesting imo, a little more 'consolidation' and I may be tempted to start adding. Always dangerous though following charts, especially with such illiquidity, so may look for some positive news flow.

Surely at some point this will amalgamate with (non private) telematics? Its seems crazy to me that, for example, Fuel delivery drivers have a fitted telematics box, and a portable ''tablet''.

Thanks for that rivaldo interesting.The real game changer of course will be if they can secure what Ian Martin describes as a biggie. Not, beyond the realms of possibility.

Interesting posts on another board from someone who attended TST's recent presentation: "Very informative session, further confirming my confidence within the management." "Just an example of how the management are trying to optimise the revenue stream: They mentioned the airline case study whereby they were previously charging £10200 per annum for device application fee. They have optimised the system by now providing both the back office based solution and application software as a complete and more attractive solution - now earning £46000 per annum. On a different note, they have also launched the TS3200 rugged android tablet last week, the most rugged terminal in its class. This will re-rate, a question of time and seriously believe we could see 400p to 500p, if management are able to implement their plan."

Evidently not hastings :o)) New product release - good to see: Http://www.touchstar.co.uk/blog/ts3200android "New TS3200 Rugged Android Tablet 14 July 2017 TouchStar launch the ultimate shock-absorbent tablet for the Fuel Delivery Industry Manchester, UK – 14th July, 2017: TouchStar Technologies PLC, specialist in the design, supply and support of rugged mobile computers, has announced the release of the TS3200 tablet mobile computer. Drawing on over thirty years of experience of manufacturing mobile technology, TouchStar has built the TS3200 around three core principles: durability, safety and ease of use. Designed to be rugged from the inside-out, each of the TS3200’s components are housed in an ultra-shock-absorbent rubber matrix. This unique approach to shock dispersal differentiates the TS3200 from its competitors by placing durability at the heart of the device, rather than adding a boot or bumper as an afterthought to the standard tablet. The result is unparalleled protection from shockwaves and vibration that can dramatically reduce the lifespan of crucial hardware. Operations Director, Jon Hall, added: “In making the TS3200 we changed our approach. We designed the tablet to be slimmer, smarter and stronger than its competitors starting from the inside out.” The cradle’s revolutionary magnetic dock and lock system facilitates one-handed docking, locking and rapid removal in landscape or portrait orientation. Once docked, the TS3200 becomes the nerve centre of in-cab operations with minimal dashboard clutter and maximum driver visibility. Going mobile is effortless due to the lightweight, ergonomic shape and 7” glare-proof screen. Operational in even the harshest environments, the TS3200’s IP65 rating provides full protection against dust, water and oil ingress. It is fully compliant with the ATEX IECEx directive, allowing safe use in potentially explosive environments, such as fuel distribution. The unit can also withstand drops of up to 1.5m on to concrete and operate in temperatures of -20o C to +50o C, marking it as the most rugged terminal in its class. The TS3200 runs on Android 6.0.1, with additional features including front and rear-facing cameras, a high specification barcode imager and 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication systems.
