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.

If the person from yesterday is reading this, please can you make us fly past 50p today. Pretty please.

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

To be honest, once we clear 45p, we should move to 60s and 70s pretty swiftly. Still believe this will get taken over north of £1.20.

There you go, spread reduced. Cannot buy though.

Agree, the spread is a killer. However, 6 to 12 months down the line one could be easily sat on 100%profit.

To be honest, it is so difficult to get a firm buy quote. Marker makers don't have spare shares, hence the wide spread.

jeevsje I think trading volume will be close to zilch today. The spread is 35-43p which shows the market makers don't want to play.

Let's see whether this can generate any volume today. Not sure there are many shares available to buy here.

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.
