I personally hope for a takeover.

Respectable, but unexciting results imo. It wasn't that long ago that HTEC was making profits of £2m per annum and if it can return to those sort of levels then the shares are cheap. The balance sheet is also solid so no worries about going broke.

A positive set of results, profit increased but eps down slightly all in all good results IMHO. UNG are IMHO a target for a larger predator.

Sold out over a year ago after holding for about 4 years. The writing was on the wall, having been over dependent on too few customers. The jam tomorrow line at every agm was the final straw. Made good money trading the peaks & troughs but is now pretty much dead in the water. I also recall David Osh was heavily invested here. Not much value holding onto shares that are unloved imo....spud

Universe is worth HALF THE PRICE OF what it was a YEAR AGO. It seems pointless holding on to the shares ,yet i have for my sins. Have any contributors here ever attended the AGM to ascertain the quality of responses from the directors? It would be helpful to shareholders to have a dialogue of some sort. Dealit reflects my views entirely

It would seem that the Directors and staff have got their selves a job for life and a pension. Share holders are holding shares with no future no dividend and no hope of one, announcements are far and few between dead in the water Company IMHO.

It looks like the loss of the BIG customer has crippled UNIVERSE. Most unimpressive in the communication dept.

If Jeremy Lewis interview is to be believed plus Finncap reiterates 11p target price, time to top up maybe.

An interview by CEO Jeremy Lewis about Universe's results: hxxps://www.directorstalkinterviews.com/universe-group-plc-make-strong-start-2018/412749120 He said early next week at the trade show in Birmingham they hope to announce some further customers for their new EPOS product. He finished the interview by saying they are looking to be more acquisitive as they seek to broaden their product and geographical foot print.

Walbrook82, They explain the variance in gross margin in the finals 'Historically, gross margin has included the cost of research and development, however, as is customary with most other software companies, this has now been included in administrative expenses. Following the reclassification, gross profit margin is consistent with the prior year at 47.6%'

Looking at their results, I noticed something fishy about their gross margin. In their annual report in 2016, it states gross margin of 35%, rather than the 48% (if you do the calculations). Readers should double check and find the reasons for this. My other two big concerns are capitalising costs and goodwill, it has a total combined value of £18m. The risk of impairment looks to be increasing because profits are declining, although this is subject to management discretion. Given today's underperformance, I was surprised brokers were previously forecasting the shares to double in the next 12 months! A revision to the future forecast is needed. Overall, I’m pessimistic about the Universe Group and recommend investors to don’t buy until they do further due diligence as the risks are on the high side that something could go wrong. It is one of those stocks that requires monitoring. For more on Universe Group and other companies’ results from Tesco and Epwin, click http://bit.ly/2JySVlX

"as well as the prospect of new business from a major international forecourt operator with whom we have not traded before." It seems to me what Universe desperately needs are a few more customers as they only rely on 5 customers for almost all their revenue and they haven't signed up a new customer over the past 3 years.

Results certainly do not sparkle but could have been worse - e.g. no cash call likely afaics. They are pretty much already in the price, I think, but that won't prevent a further drop, at least temporarily. I unloaded the vast majority of my holding a while back and will continue to watch for an upturn. The one thing that struggling retailers are unlikely to cut back on is payment hadling efficiency and promotions imo. However, I want to see more positive indications that the current strategy is working out before further commitment.

Does anyone know if the changes in the way customers pay for items in retailors i.e. no cashiers will benefit UNG in anyway.
