Disappointing and looks like an element of clearing the decks for 2017. WH Ireland have rebased to 6.6p EPS for year gone, with 12.6p EPS remaining on the cards for this year. "The impact on 2016 forecasts is as follows: we lower our previous £8.7m revenue forecast by £1m to £7.7m which results in a reduction in PBT from £450k to £215k. Touchstar continues to benefit from a favourable tax regime in relation to R&D credits, hence the downgrade to the EPS is less pronounced with our new forecast of 6.6p (from 10.3p). All forecasts for 2017 remain unchanged. Although disappointing, a great deal is going on at Touchstar, not least better integration of the underlying businesses all under the one brand. This should ultimately drive profit growth over the medium term. Recognising the disappointment from today’s update, however, we move to a Market Perform recommendation. Our new 101p price target represents a cautious 8x current year (2017) P/E." Kind regards GHF

Interim results were good, but I was put off by the balance sheet and Ian Martin's reminder of the competitive nature of this market. Consequently I was never tempted back in. Sadly it reminds me of the Warren Buffet quote:- "When a management with a reputation for brilliance tackles a business with a reputation for bad economics, it is the reputation of the business that remains intact." Good luck if you believe Martin can turn it around though.

TST/BVM never fails to disappoint :o(( Http://www.investegate.co.uk/touchstar-plc--tst-/rns/trading-update/201701050700073695T/ Given the illiquidity no doubt there will be a large markdown. The crumbs of comfort are that: (a) H2 was still breakeven, not lossmaking, so there will still be a £0.3m PBT for the year (b) orders were only deferred, not cancelled, so 2017 should benefit from the deferrals (c) similarly, the bad debt is a one-off With the progress that's been made I'm happy to hold as TST is transformed - there doesn't seem to be anything fundamentally wrong other than still being a small enough company that it remains vulnerable to certain order deferrals.

RNS - Spreadex go above 3%. Looks like one or more of their clients have been busily buying via spreadbet/CFD.... Http://www.investegate.co.uk/touchstar-plc--tst-/rns/holding-s--in-company/201701030900031669T/

Indeed I was one of the early Belgravium holders back on the BVM thread years ago when holders seemed to get more and more frustrated with JK and at one point I expected shareholder activism to play a role but fortunately Ian Martin came to the rescue it seems.

Windy and horrible morning so I spent some time with the recent results. (As a background I did at one time hold 1% of BVM (clogue to longer term posters) but have reduced substantially since then. I do remember buying a considerable number of shares at 2p(32p) but that was eight years ago so that hardly makes me Warren Buffett. I still hold enough to make me pay attention but I've been distracted and only looked in now and then.) I must say that the recent results were very solid and the cash being generated is quite substantial for a company this size.Without a considerable reduction in trade and payables these results would look even better but bills have to be paid and inventory was reduced and receivables fell but overall this was a very solid performance. The second half is always better here. The really good news for me is that the share price is now higher than that paid to Kembery (5p:80p)and nice to see the new guy in profit but I suspect he has higher and longer term ambitions here. My first instinct this morning was that things were getting ahead of themselves here but on closer examination I certainly don't consider that to be the case.

I'm also long of TST, and would be very interested to meet mgt. It never seemed to go anywhere when it was Belgravium, so is more interesting now it has more ambitious mgt.

That's great davidosh, cheers. Having met RNWH relatively recently I might try and make the Mello with TST that evening.

Good to see a respected group of us here. I will try to set up a presentation with Ian early in the new year before they go into a closed period. I have one set up with Renew for 11am on the 16th Jan and it is my Mello in Beckenham that evening so probably a good day for a line up for lunch and in the afternoon.

Nice 10k buy at 90p just now. Online I can only buy a maximum 2,500 at 90p, whilst I can sell 15,000 at a big premium at 88.68p. Looks good.

Welcome from me too GHF - apologies for being the last to do so, but I don't monitor this thread too often since it's generally a bit quiet :o)) The "new" CEO's nicely understated but positive outlook comments in the interims will hopefully be reflected in the anticipated stronger H2'16 results, continuing the recovery from H1.
