There will be 790m shares in issue after the fund raising and at 7p this gives a market cap of £55.3m If we take the cash out we have £25m With brokers estimates of c.£2.6m for existing business this year the figure of 7p/8p is reasonable if a little miserly. The reasons to buy these shares are:- 1 The value of the Maritime unit alone ( c.£40m/£45m) 2 The potential of the existing business. 3 The ability of management to use their advantage over target companies to buy at a good price and successfully integrate these companies. I think that the risk is low and the downside looks small compared to the considerable upside but there is much to be done.

Give or take when the dust settles and we have 30mill in the bank then we should at least be trading around 13p (and that doesn't even factor in growth potential of all these aquasitions we're planning over next 12 months)..... Jeez

Assuming everything goes through, cash pile in excess of 30mill quid, current businesses worth Circa £50mill may be, yet at the moment we have a combined mkt cap of a mere 29million.... What gives?

As all long term investors know, TPG is on the up and up but I must say this fund raising did catch me by surprise. The maritime unit as we know was/is going from strength to strength ( recruiting up again on the company site) but the company has been held back by the eye watering losses from the D&T unit. Fortunately​ there was a reduction in revenue in this unit as long term, loss making contracts came to an end so the reduction in revenue was certainly positive. The MS unit was tiny and was really just built round a 10 year MoD contract that came to an end half way through 2016. Obviously there was a temporary drop in income but the unit now looks in great shape with new MoD contracts and the recent acquisitions looking good. The engineering unit has partially extracated itself from the low margin oil and gas business and looks to have repositioned itself in the lower volume,higher margin nuclear and aerospace market. New management, rapidly rising order book, rapidly falling losses and predicted profit this year should complete the turnround. So with things going so well and revenue expected to climb 30% and EBITDA set to treble I expected a steady as you go approach and a gradual acquisition programme using the ample cash balance at hand. I would suggest that the management have identified a real window where there are almost forced sellers out there. The proposed rate of acquisition will increase the risk to investors as the previous set up of the Maritime unit worth over £40m on its own,the other three units turning round rapidly and a year end predicted cash balance of £7m made it bomb proof. The only real risk I can see is simply too much too soon but the management have shown they know what they are doing so things should be OK. I would have expected an EBITDA of at least £4m next year and cash of £10m but now we may have an EBITDA of over £10m and some cash left. I expect a year end share price of 9p/10p and end of next 13p/15p People will remember my long term 50% compound growth that was looking good 3.6p,5.4p,8.1p and 12.15p so I would be happy to be wrong on the upside but this share picking lark can certainly bite you on the bum sometimes. Many a slip ....and all that !!

No long term , knowledgeable, holder of TPG would agree that acquisitions are needed but most would welcome this latest move by the board. I suspect you have limited knowledge of the history of TPG or the three units you have "researched" and simply repeating the recent results only make your lack of understanding all the more obvious. Far from being needed I may have preferred a slightly longer delay before these acquisitions but I do know quite a bit about TPG . Edit: the management are trying to exploit the situation that other small MoD contractors now find themselves and NOT simply trying to buy revenue as has been suggested.

You have issues re HAYT I stand by this Out of the 4 Divisions itemised in the 2016 Annual report 3 of them reported lower earnings than in 2015 the only one that improved was TPG Maritime which lucky for holders carried the other 3 Divisions performing badly. The numbers are there for all to read I can post them if asked Thus I can see why acquisitions are needed

I hold enough of these to know what is written in every publication produced by TPG . The clear suggestion from the previous post was that TPG had to chase revenue because of falling revenue in its current units was ridiculous and would be seen as such by any knowledgeable investor. The current brokers estimates for 2017 is for revenue of £30m and an EBITDA of c.£2.7m with c. £7m cash ( this is before the cash raising and major acquisitions) Revenue of the MS unit and Engineering unit are expected to rise significantly and losses at D&T are expected to fall further ( close to break even) I welcome the acquisitions but they are certainly not "needed"

All knowledgeable investors will know that the only unit to suffer any sort of serious reverse was engineering and this was also the unit that had the greatest increase in orders and is showing the greatest prospect of improvement in the very near (immediate) future. I may be a bit out of my depth here as I am certainly not prepared to spend my day posting 12 times on about 10 different companies......unlike some.

ewads (2322) "how is the daily share price kept above 6.5p?" A cannonball may be thrown over the edge of a thirteenth-floor balcony. For a while, people will be able to say "Look! It is still above the ground! It flies!"

with what is planned with the proceeds and alignment of TPG/MOD supply chain 6.5p looks like a very good deal IMHO

To get this placing away, how is the daily share price kept above 6.5p? Just curious

It is becoming increasingly difficult for me to get all that bothered about the open offer to shareholders. Normally when I hold a share that is undergoing a fund raising exercise the first question I look at is whither or not I am prepared to suffer a dilution of my holding but in this case the dilution will happen whatever I do. I am however quite happy to see shares being added at 6.5p and the company going forward with over £30m pounds in cash, with a clear plan, competent and experienced management,and most importantly, a distinct advantage (lever) in any future negotiations to purchase the companies they are targeting. My lack of enthusiasm for the 1:7 share offer is that I hold a very large number of shares (for me and relative to the rest of my portfolio) and don't really want to add more so will probably just dip in here and there. If I held a smaller number I would probably take up my entitlement and go for more in the excess distribution(the amount available will depend on the institutional take up). I see that management are buying 2.5m in the Firm Placing but not participating in the Open Offer. My view is that the placings at 6.5p is so close to the recent share price as to not really dilute the value of my holdings and I expect the cash to be used to very good effect thus increasing the value of my holdings (significantly ?) My 50% compound growth model for the share price was going well and fairly easy to monitor and adjust but things are now a bit up in the air. I predicted 8.1p by this year end but based on my revised EBITDA target and cash I was pushing this out to closer to 9p. With is cash pile and the flurry of acquisitions that I suspect are already lined up I think we will experience a bit of price volatility this year. Coverage in the IC can cause spikes but I think the progress will be fairly rapid and we should see 10p by the year end but this may be based on the newly acquired companies producing the require return in the future rather than actual cash produced this year. Looking further out then 13p should not be unreasonable for the end of next year but this is quite shot in the dark with all that is going on today. The above prediction is based on the market (at the end of 2017)looking at the year ahead and seeing a predicted EBITDA of over £10m.

It means you can apply for extra shares under the excess facility up to 10x your existing holding. This is in addition to your 1:7 entitlement.

I'm certainly in for the first 10,000. Another 20,000 under excess would be interesting, but just how many you have to pitch for to get 20,000 is an unknown.

C & P from my broker's note sent today: OPEN OFFER You have been credited with TP Group plc Entitlement Shares at a rate of 1 Basic Entitlement Share (ISIN: GB00BF4VC969) for every 7 existing Shares held and 10 Excess Entitlement Shares (ISIN: GB00BF4VCB83) for every 1 existing Share held as at 10 July 2017. These will entitle you to purchase 1 New TP Group plc Ordinary Share (ISIN: GB0030591514) for every 1 Entitlement Share held at an issue price of GBP0.065 per New Share. Shareholders may apply for any whole number of excess shares in excess of their Open Offer Entitlements subject to availability. The excess entitlement is shown purely for administration purposes. ___________ I have 70,000 shares on that account. I suppose that means I get a basic entitlement of 10,000 shares come what may. I don't quite understand what it means for the excess. 10,000 shares under excess? or "10 Excess Entitlement Shares (ISIN: GB00BF4VCB83) for every 1 existing Share held as at 10 July 2017" means 700,000 Excess Entitlement Shares? So - "These will entitle you to purchase 1 New TP Group plc Ordinary Share (ISIN: GB0030591514) for every 1 Entitlement Share held at an issue price of GBP0.065 per New Share." I can't believe that means 700,000 * 6.5p = £45,500! HARDLY LIKELY! & beyond my reach on this A/C alone......

The following appeared on my online account yet I have had no contact from them? I take it they are placeholders for when the purchase for the open offer becomes live? TP Group Open Offer Basic TP Group Open Offer Excess Edited: Just looked at corporate actions and the Basic offer is 1 for every 7 you hold at 6.5p the excess offer is 10 for every 1 at 6.5p but not guaranteed

The potential benefits behind this fund raising should not be underestimated. In 12 months time a doubling of the share price is a very realistic forecast.

I think we will sit around this share price for a while. Really hope H2 drives us into double figures finally.
