How about the profit warning in Dec last year. WHI numbers were 220k loss before tax for FY19. They did 820k loss before tax. So, not good. Not good at all. 2020 is when the numbers will really start picking up but then, they decide not to provide forecasts. Don't get me wrong, this is undervalued atm based on the numbers I posted last night. But they need to start delivering and do something about the share price. Their 3yr plan (2018 to 2020) should be ending now and shareholders deserve some return.

Again, I understand frustration but the company year end results were fine and order book at this time was fantastic. Now if it wasn't for covid 19 we would have seen a massive re-rate imo. As far as I can see on a two year investment there won't be many better on aim.

Well 1st half numbers will be known but guidance on the 2nd other than recurring revenue will be hard. If my memory serves me right TST aim to finish the year at at least break even. That may sound pessimistic but Ian had turned the company around until covid 19 hit us. Under the circumstances I do have sympathy with all concerned.

The AGM is imminent. Ian Martin should really use the AGM statement to provide more clarity on forecast numbers. As far as i know, WHI are yet to revise their numbers.I understand this is due to the C19 situation but it appears that Market really needs some guidance. And this time, make sure we hit those numbers since they have failed to do so in the last two years. No more excuses allowed anymore. Give the numbers and make sure you achieve them.

We all know 1st half will be impressive, It's a matter of whether it can continue from July to December. What does bode well is that this is always been the busiest period, so fingers crossed.

I wish that i had an option to paste my tables here but i couldn't find a way to do so. So, I have detailed assumptions and numbers below. Thoughts/feedback welcome. Assumptions: HY19 numbers included on-board numbers. Therefore, HY19 continuing numbers based on FY19 continuing numbers (i.e 50% split). % increase in Q1: 49% (28th May RNS) % increase in Q2: 0% % increase in H1: 25% Q1 tends to be the weakest in terms of revenue. Therefore, to ensure that we are not overestimating H1 growth, I have taken zero growth for Q2 to give a more realistic but extremely impressive 25% increase in revenue for HY20. Cost savings of £150k for HY20 (slide indicates higher than this; worth noting that J Hall has now left which in itself is £133k savings per year) 51% margin Number of LHS represents continuing HY19 (50% of FY19). Number on RHS are my estimates for HY20. Income £3,327 £4,142 (approx 25% increase) Costs of Sales £1,604 £2,030 Gross Profits £1,724 £2,112 Distribution Costs £28 £34 (proportional to income) Admin Costs £1,922 £1,772 (Reduction of £150k) Exceptional Items £99 £0 (not expecting exceptional items this year) Operating Profit -£324 £307 Finance Costs £25 £12.5 Profit before tax -£349 £294 So, we are looking at going from £350k loss to £300k profit before tax for HY20. The £4.1 million income also seems sensible/achievable since Rivaldo mentioned £3.1k till end of April and £200k recurring runrate. Assuming we can get to 600k earning per year within next two years: Earnings: £600k PE: 20 (TST can justify higher than that due to growth nature, industry, etc) Price: £12million Cash: £1million (could be higher) MCAP: ~ £13 million We could easily justify a 200% growth in share price and still look undervalued. Add to this possibility of a dividend being introduced (maybe after 2021) based on recurrent revenue/cash generative nature of the business and it seems only a matter of time before a party is interested.

You are welcome, Rivaldo. I also ran some numbers on Friday to estimate the position at HY20 and in my opinion, this remains well undervalued. I will post those later tonight/tommorrow.

Er...bio_tango actually states he found it in the Annual Report. Cheers bio_tango. This can be found on the Investor Relations web site, and includes an excellent Strategic Report which isn't in the prelims RNS.

Some snippets from the FY19 report: 1. Revenue growth over the next few years will be expected to come in the form of capital sales, but an increasing element of the sale will focus on recurring revenue extended into three and five year minimum terms. Pricing policies will allow for annual upfront payment as well as monthly licence payment for software usage (SaaS). 2. It is our intention to increase recurring revenue to become a more significant portion of our future turnover. 3. The business is benefiting from many of its existing clients going through the process of an upgrade cycle with us. We also have a number of returning customers upgrading to our new solution, which is testament to our ongoing quality service and support offering and thus enhancing the future pipeline for the Group. 4. Our ability to now offer an end to end solution optimises our offering and increases the success rate of our products to be adopted. The customer can purchase the total solution from their ERP interface through to the mobile workforce with Touchstar’s sophisticated cloud-based packages. All these Touchstar products are in house owned (IPR) and this reduces reliance on 3rd party suppliers. 5. We continue to secure large contracts with blue chip companies across the UK and Europe. The software products are now complete however, as with all software products, they will continue to evolve but already we are experiencing good results within the marketplace 6. The new product set within the Transport marketplace has seen a great deal of interest with over a dozen companies adopting the Transport Management and Proof of Delivery system

Rivaldo, what is your target price for selling?

This time, I am right, Rivaldo. No buyers at 55p. Need confirmation of rise by closing above 60p.

You've been saying "no buyers" since 40p or even before :o))

There are clearly no buyers at 55p and sellers have arrived. Need to clear 60p first to confirm uptrend.

He is waiting for the big boys to take out 55 and then will have to pay probably 5p more for each 5k. It's risen from 40 to 55 very quickly and he has missed that boat for sure
