It occurred to me that they might have taken the payment hit as they were fully aware that they could make up the defect very quickly with the new water customers . Bearing in mind, that if a company already trusts Utilitywise to manage their existing services, then addding on the additional water service to each of their 40k customers should be a piece of cake. I have topped up quite heavily recently, with this being one of the reasons. I also am impressed by their new digital advertising campaign.

No I'm still here. And still think there is potential esp after the latest changes, painful as they are in the short term.

I know I am talking to myself on here, but I was thinking the new water offering has 40k ready made (and probably receptive customers). It also presents a very good opportunity to find new customers. This should result in the few months sales figures being very good !

I would have thought the new water offering will help figures from this month. I also saw that on one of the results slides presentation that there was a mention of insurance and telephone company / internet provider as services UTW could possibly provide. If all of this comes good then I cant see why the price wont get to a multiple of its current level over the next few years.

Inevitable considering you could get 2% div on your investment by holding until 18 May on a stock with a PE of < 6. Can't get that in the bank.

I get the feeling there is a big seller in the background and we will have to wait until its cleared.

Wouldn't count on it without some positive news flow, it could just drift down, often happens when shares are out of favour.

Positives: - Enterprise Europe swings to +ve EBIDTA - Contracted revenue (finally) rising faster than headcount Negatives: - Net debt - Various isues in corporate division - Enterprise UK has negative operational gearing? Where are the extra costs coming from if not headcount?! - Lack of director skin-in-the-game If this is misunderstood and unfairly unloved, why aren't we seeing directors adding?

I see UTW as a finance company - spend now (racking up debts early on), call in the cash later. There's some amount of risk (and a sense of jam tomorrow to begin with) but the eventual margins should be reasonable if your risk-management and operational cost-control are sound. The supplier advances always seemed a nonsense to me - because I assumed they were at a discount that exceeded UTW's debt-financing costs. They were surrendering margin to front-load cash collection - but why would a finance company want to act like a retailer..? Going forward, assuming their genuine free cashflows are sufficient to finance future growth, pay a dividend and work down the debt pile, then it's a viable investable business...otherwise.. Was Thompson after a quick-buck? Were they masking financial strain as the only way to grow quickly? Was it both? Don't know but it's an interesting recovery play. I'll let the market provide signals before I perhaps buy in though.

UTW Firstly may I declare a position in UTW's peer INSE, so simply look in periodically to compare relative valuations & execution of their strategies. I checked back, & found that I last posted on this thread in August 2015. This was on the back of finnCap downgrading earnings, dividend forecasts and slashing the year-end net cash balance (post 1538 for anyone that cares to look back). At the time I suggested that UTW would not command a strong rating until they were in a position to demonstrate positive cashflow. Share price at the time was c.225p Let's travel back. finnCap had forecast net debt of £0.4m at the end of FY 2015 (31.07.2015) & the full year results for 2015 highlighted net debt figure of £6.7m which was a considerable miss in anyone's book. Now fast forward to the latest interim statement & it appears that UTW are still dealing with the same issue. finnCap released a note last week that indicates, "We have factored in a higher interest charge due to the higher net debt. Our net debt forecasts have increased by £24m in FY 2017 split: £5.5m from prior year adjustments, £16.4m from the reversal of supplier advances, £1.1m from exceptional costs and £0.7m from higher and reclassified interest. We have also reassessed our working capital assumptions in FY18 and FY19 assuming the level of extensions seen in H1 17 continues at 23%." Wow! A £24m increase in net debt! That places the 2015 increase in net debt of £6.3m in the shade. While finnCap have left earnings & PBT forecasts relatively unchanged, forecasts for the cash position of the company has taken a significant hit over the next 3 years: - 2017 PBT £18.8m (old £19.3m) EPS 19.5p (old 19.8p) Net Debt £19.7m (previously net cash £4.5m) 2018 PBT £21.0m (old £21.6m) EPS 21.8p (old 22.3p) Net Debt £13.7m (previously net cash £11.6m) 2019 PBT £23.2m (old £23.6m) EPS 24.1p (old 24.3p) Net Debt £8.4m (previously net cash £20.9m) Other commentators, such as the excellent Paul Scott, have produced more extensive reviews that question a number of aspects of the business. To be perfectly honest though, I & others have questioned the revenue recognition policy in UTW previously and I reckon that we have simply observed this playing out with a dramatic fall in cash since the t/s in August 2015 which I alluded to at the beginning of this post. The market accordingly have afforded the company a lower rating as a result. I wish UTW holders well, but I reckon they won't do quite as well as the departing Geoff Thomson who pulled off a masterstroke by selling down 5.4m shares at 290p in June 2014 (13m shareholding reduced down to 8m) when the group employed a different revenue recognition policy. It's been downhill ever since! Thanks, but I'll stick to INSE meantime. Kind regards, GHF

I would not be surprised if Woodford buys some more. I see Geoff Thompson has other things on his mind at the moment. What a great story. /southshieldsfc.co.uk/mariners-visit-wembley-for-first-time-as-fa-vase-final-plans-stepped-up/

I doubt he looks at the daily moves of the share price ..Its all about the long game. Buy low, sell high or buy low & hold.

For what it's worth, IC has UTW as a buy. Thinks the negativity is over done.

Re posts that are removed. I am all for hearing the negatives, but I do think a line has to be drawn when a poster brings the honesty of the company into question or as was the case, talked about 200 staff leaving at once.(Which obviously was not true ) In todays litigious climate, posters could find themselves in legal trouble if they get too carried away.
