The results are quite clear that the cash flow suffered as a result of the late payment of the tax rebate. "The Group's cashflow in the six months to 30 June 2019 was adversely impacted by two factors. The first was that substantial monies due from the HMRC for prior investment in the business were delayed, due to a processing backlog at HMRC. These monies, amounting to GBP456,000, were received in August. The second was the sizeable cash outflow arising from restructuring, which was over GBP170,000 (30 June 2018: nil). The benefits of the restructuring are now starting to flow." There is no suggestion that this is additional money but just that the cash flow and by implication the debt shown on the accounts should be judged in the knowledge that the money that was shown as a non cash asset is now cash.

Hi GWR, you could be right. However, my understanding of the R&D tax process is that you need to submit a report to HMRC justifying the technological advancement achieved through the R&D and the uncertainties faced. Once the report is approved by HMRC, you get the payment within days. Hence, I doubt they would have known the outcome at the end of June and whether to reflect anything in the accounts.

"So, they received another £500k from HMRC in August, which is not reflected in numbers." Surely it's in the £656k recoverable tax number in the current assets section of the balance sheet.

Ya, won't be surprised if it is Ian. He already holds 8% of the company. As I said, all the divisions except on board is picking up nicely. 15% to 18% growth is pretty good, considering the Brexit uncertainties.

Someone, possibly the chairman has picked up 20,000 shares at 43p. Shares look as if they are heading back above 50p.

I have just taken time to re run through results. Personally, I think they are pretty good and hopefully entering what is normally TST stronger half any more positive news will strengthen the bottom line. Obviously brexit is a concern to all companies and the sooner it is done the better it will be for all.

Pacey, agree, just on board dragging down a bit but that has now been resolved now. Were it not for the redundancies for on board, the profit numbers and cash would look very good.

Very positive on first glance (in a rush and heading out).

So, they received another £500k from HMRC in August, which is not reflected in numbers. Disregarding On-Board, the remaining part of the business is growing at around 15% to 18%.

Still jam tomorrow although it now looks as if we might be able to book an Ocado delivery slot.

Results out early and make reasonable reading with a definite positive tone going forward. Personally hoping for a little more but hey ho, better than normal.

I think it goes without saying, tst is in a much better place than it has been for some time with orders following in. I have been informed that not all orders are out there, as the information act restricts their ability to name each and every one of them. My only concern is that holding large quantities means selling in the open market can prove to be difficult at times. However, results later this month will reveal progress.

Sorry about my last post as you cannot buy at under 40p. I had a little top up at 39.5p and went back for more and found that the price was up 2p !! I'm afraid there is no market in these shares due to the ridiculous spread. Given the very impressive order for their products/ services on Friday I was surprised that I seemed to be the only one going for more. Now have a fair holding here so let's see what the results bring.

Major contracts, orders coming in, major shareholder increasing holding and you can still buy under 40p or market cap of c. £3.5m. Revenue of at least twice market cap

The following statement was made in the finals. Maybe, those larger contracts are starting to flow in. "We have developed a complete management suite of software in the transportation and proof of delivery market (PODStar). PODstar was originally aimed at the small to medium fleet operators (10 -100 vehicles). From a standing start we now have an installed base of 14 customers. The financial model is for the customer to pay an installation set up fee, then a monthly charge per vehicle per month. We originally targeted smaller fleet operators, as it was the quickest way to market and to establish an installed user base. However, our solution is very scalable and we are now starting to see enquiries from much larger fleet owners. This is encouraging, although we recognise that decision timelines of these organisations tend to be much longer."

God gave us Google for this sort of thing !!! Our owners We are owned by two large European companies DCC plc 60% and DLG amba 40% . DCC plc is an international group with operations in 15 European countries and a total turnover of DKK 106 billion. DKK. The activities are divided into 4 business areas: LPG 47% Retail & Oil 27 % Healthcare 14% Technology 12% As I said, a very, very important order for a number of reasons.

Jeevsje. Not sure it's a ftse100 as it's energi and not energy. They are a Danish company from what I can gather.

I reckon interims should be out within next two weeks. Worth remembering that Martin holds around 8%, and one of the major shareholders increased his stake further few weeks back.

The new customer would certainly seem to be the real deal. Very impressive and highly significant order for a number of reasons.
