Shanklin, in that statement in the H1 results VLG may actually be talking about the "strong order book for H2" in general - completely separate to the comment about China. It may be that the sentence is simply poorly worded, combining the Chinese H1 orders with the additional info about orders in general being strong. Anyway....we'll never know for sure!

QS99, Completely agree re H2 China orders, but they should have advised ASAP that they had inadvertantly been incorrect about this in the H1 results.

I've been out of VLG since late November 20. I still watch closely but didn't appreciate the way the BOD claimed they were ok for capital, then took advantage of the early Nov spike to raise capital and cash out themselves. If the medium term earnings outlook improves, I might be interested again.

it can have a strong order book, but may have been prevented from shipping for some reason? We know the container market has been pretty challenging? As you say Shanklin, hopefully this clears the way for acquisitions to take place...DYOR

Trading statement just out indicates that EBITDA will be ahead of expectations. Cenkos' forecast for 2020 is £6m EBITDA, but VLG report that they'll achieve "not less than" £6m - double 2019's performance. And that's without any further Chinese oral care shipments in H2, which are "due to resume in H1 2021", and with COVID-affected core product sales which should also return to growth this year. Plus having "an order book ahead of the same time last year" bodes well.

And don't forget about the Cardiff trial... "Venture Life therefore believes that the composition of its CPC-based mouthwashes is ‘unique and once published, will update the market with the results of the human (in-vivo) clinical study in partnership with Cardiff University in early 2021."

Good to see from APH's trading update this morning that Kelo-Cote continues to perform very well: "Whilst top line revenue growth has been constrained overall, our Consumer Healthcare business has performed well given the market backdrop and we have seen some strong performances from a number of our brands, in particular Kelo-cote." "Kelo-cote(TM) revenues were up 12% to GBP34.7m (2019: GBP31.0m)"

In July 2018 they did a placing to fund the acquisition of Dentyl and to pay off some bonds and loan notes. They raised £17.5m and about £9.6m remained on the books until they purchased Pharmasource for Eur €6.5m (c £6m) this Jan - unless I've missed other acquisitions that the market weren't informed about then 18 months or so in between raising funds and making an acquisition is in my opinion nothing to shout about.The recent £34m fund raise should be followed by confirmation of an acquisition, not that it may not happen or due diligence failed, and not in a few months time either. With interest rates and the cost of debt at all time lows wtf are they doing raising so much cash in the first place if they are not certain a deal can be done.Time will tell I suppose but as you can tell I'm not too happy ?

Hi QS99, HNY to you too! I stopped working over Xmas/New Year a long time ago when I started doing this lark, which is much more pleasant and has far shorter hours.... Happy to hold VLG for the long-term - acquisitions will happen when they happen, and in the meantime VLG are trading very well anyway. The share price has roughly tripled in the last year, and imo there's still plenty of upside.

With only 60% production rate at their Italian site they need to pull their fingers out. Raising the funds IMO should be the last hurdle in securing any acquisitions.......if nothing by the time of the trading update this month then I'm out.

Hey Riv how are you mate? HNY! Yes, around the edges it would hold things up, but broadly speaking they talked in the placing document of that biggy being very well advanced (from memory) so should really be imminent IMO.....anyone working in corporate world has had to work over Christmas / NY! Not that I would recommend that quite frankly.... anyway, it's edging towards (and hopefully passed) the squidly diddly level again.....

Good to see the price rising again. QS99, I completely agree that DD is so much easier nowadays. But surely in VLG's line of work they need to inspect the manufacturing facilities, review the distribution networks etc - corners can't be cut on these things. It's only been just over a month since VLG even announced the Placing and Offer, so it wouldn't surprise me if COVID had caused timelines on these things to slip a little. Obviously I hope I'm wrong! But I fully expect there to be news soon - be it trading or acquisitions - and when it happens the share price is likely to rise nicely imo.

DD these days Riv can be done remotely very very easily. I completed a deal a few months before COVID struck and all the dd was done remotely!! Likewise with lawyers, it really should not impinge on anything these days. Also as VLG is more a "product" than "people's" business (still important but less so IMO), then less need for face to face to build the trust up etc etc etc..... DYOR and roll on breaking a quid next week CHeers QS99

Good to see the bid price back up to 94p. News via a trading update or the first acquisition could come at any time - though of course the new lockdown won't help the due diligence and signing off of the three mooted acquisitions.

PS I'm also a tad cynical on the sequence of events prior to the announcement (Friday afternoon ffs) of the placing, namely that a couple of days beforehand they updated the market on the clinical trial (to boost the share price) and on the day the placing was announced a known ex associate and major shareholder sold some shares (Dr Flynn)...just coincidence?.....not to mention a couple of the BOD selling.

JockThe issue I have is the way the BOD went about raising the funds and the way they justified it. At the interims they were clearly saying that acquisitions via increased debt was the best way to go then did a complete u turn with the placing. Why?, they have stated that with no acquisitions they would be in a net cash position at year end (H1 was c £6m), also with H1 EBITDA at £3.5m (say at least £6m by year end) they could easily raise £12m of debt funding which would acquire "Vulcan" and the second deal they outlined.Basically I don't now trust the BOD in terms of what they are saying in how best to deliver on their acquisition strategy. I'm also of the view that the owners of the "Vulcan" brands has now increased what they are willing to accept knowing VLG have oodles of cash available.
