I´ve been holding since Universe paid its last dividend, however I did double my holding at 1.85p when its share price was near its all time low. The money is now rolling in and it seems to me Universe would been seen more Favourably by investors if it would clear a path to start paying a small dividend.

With cash now rolling in, hopefully will not be too long before it pays a dividend to us long suffering share holders. Even just 0.1p would show willing by the company and give a further boost to its share price.

Looks like the round of presentations in the city went pretty well, overturning the strange (imo) reaction on the morning of results.

I would agree with you Spud; the company has now established an operationally and financially strong position from which future growth can be achieved.The terms of the recently negotiated share options would seem to indicate that they are expecting something more than modest growth over the next few years.

Not a dividend payer but generating plenty of cash. What are they going to do with all the reddies?

FinnCap notes Universe Group: Prelims – improved margins drive outperformance (CORP) Strong results are ahead of January’s year-end trading update and our forecasts. Despite a marginal reduction in revenue, an improved gross margin and reduced normalised operating costs have resulted in 12% EBITDA growth y/y and a 7% outperforming of our forecasts. In FY16, we expect Universe to maintain this improved EBITDA margin and also to benefit from strong revenue visibility in relation to scheduled rollouts, most significantly in relation to the key contract signed with Conviviality plc in 2015. As a result, we upgrade our FY16 EBITDA expectation by 8% and raise our target price to 13p, suggesting 32% upside. We also introduce FY17 forecasts, anticipating modest revenue and EBITDA growth of 4% and 7% respectively, leaving clear scope for outperformance.

Shanklin :-) I agree they should put an adjusted EPS in the report, as many investors won't go further than looking at the PE.

Agree Spud, the reported EPS figure is not representative, for example it's been reduced by the additional contingent consideration paid for Indigo. With plenty of cash, acquisitions look possible this year and also they alluded to 'Major New Customers'. Bearing in mind UNG generally only report contracts once they're already rolling them out, the tendering may be more advanced than conservatively stated?

Unless of course you look at the EV/EBITDA of under 6, excellent cash gereration, increased margins, positive outlook and a Stockrank of 90!

Well, I had thought I had made a mistake selling just before a 7% rise on 01-Apr-16, but at least today's results are not overly inspiring.

Sorry no plans to record that one but Universe may be appearing at Mello in May or June and those are generally filmed.

Another 125k just bought at 9.08p - looking strong in the results run-up. Well done for organising davidosh, I'd have come but am out for most of the afternoon and evening already that day so it's difficult. Perhaps it'll be filmed/recorded?

The results are on the 12th April so not long now. I have a results presentation scheduled for Thursday 14th at 1.30pm for 1.5 hours if a couple of you would like to join my mello group to meet the directors ? Just email me via the mellomeeting.co.uk website
