Words like "supportive" and reference to costs make the trading statement a profit warning in my eyes. Avoid and takeProfit.

I see VP. are being kicked out of the SmallCap index. Not sure why. Pressumably lack of liquidity.

#VP. Given Britain’s successful vaccine rollout, prospects have improved dramatically over the past 12 months, with Vp saying this morning that FY21 results were “in line with expectations”, and it exited the period on a run-rate of c.“95% of pre-Covid levels”. Despite “some sectors (eg events & hospitality) remaining closed and infrastructure (eg AMP7 and CP6) not yet fully up to speed”. We are forecasting FY21 adjusted PBT of £23.0m on sales of £299.6m – ending the year with £124m of net debt. The latter reflecting tight working capital control (re debtors), lower fleet capex and approx £8m of deferred VAT to be repaid in FY22. Similarly, we have upgraded our FY22 PBT by 12% to £33.5m, alongside increasing the valuation from £9 to £11 per share. What’s more, in light of Vp’s consistent track record of innovation, execution & above-average returns, we could readily see the stock tracking towards £16.80 by 2024 - assuming 5% organic top line growth can be achieved across the economic cycle. https://www.equitydevelopment.co.uk/research/construction-boom-coming-down-the-track
Latest commentary here wrt today's positive H1'21 results from Vp hxxps://www.linkedin.com/posts/paul-hill-a5994116_vp-cv-activity-6741608722570772480-kgpn
another encouraging update: revs up from 55% of pre-Covid levels in April to c 85%. H1 saw £41m of cashflow + Sept net debt fell to £118.7m vs £159.8m in March. Modest ratings for the shares: 7.2x PER, 1.5x Price:Book and 3.9x EV/EBITDA - see new research note from Equity Development here: https://tinyurl.com/y2v4rexq
Positive news in AGM update that, after a sharp -45% decline in April, trading has significantly improved, with revenues “now running at >80% of prior year levels.” driven by increased homebuilding, construction & infrastructure activity. Encouragingly the group has generated £22m of positive cashflow over the past 3 months, with net debt closing June lower at £138m vs £159.8m in Mar’20. According to new research note from Equity Dev, at 700p the shares appear lowly rated - equivalent to trailing FY20 multiples of 7.8x PER, 1.7x Price:Book and 4.3x EV/EBITDA.

Results are in line , with adj PBTA reaching a record level. Obviously coronavirus means uncertain outlook in short term , but even without forecasts yet the shares at 800p appear attractively priced, trading on trailing 8.9x PER, 1.9x price:book and 4.9x EV/EBITDA multiples - offering upside potential for patient investors vs peer group averages.

ed:> How worried are you about debt? Also lot of noise in press about need to lock down parts of the construction industry - ED and Company (gut feel) possilby too confident about short term impact.
Amidst a rush of updates today, Vp look in good shape: trading 'satisfactory' since interims in Dec and FY seen just marginally below expectations. New research from Equity Development just published shows low rating: trailing 5.5x PE, 1.2x Price:Book and 3.8x EV/EBITDA - vs 860p/share fair value.

Interims show 'good progress' and Board 'confident of a positive full year' says the Chairman PBT £25.9m , EPS 52.5p and H1 div 8.45p +3%. New research note out from Equity Development, notes Group's resilience and retains fair value at 1075p/share. At last close of 890p, the stock trades on EV/EBITDA, EV/EBIT and PER multiples of 5.0x, 9.6x and 9.0x, equivalent to a 10%-30% discount vs the equipment rental sector.

hxxps://www.equitydevelopment.co.uk/company/?company=Vp&c=zgDO The holy grail for corporates is to create a sustainable edge that produces superior returns over the long term, and whose advantage is not eroded by time or competition. We think specialist plant hire firm Vp, with its strong niche positions, has achieved this. What’s more at 810p, its shares today trade at an historically low 8.0x PER, whilst also paying a 4.0% yield. Sure there are some macro headwinds, such as Brexit, lackluster global growth and US vs China trade wars. Yet equally the company is performing well, as illustrated again this morning. Here the group said that FY20 was on track to hit expectations. UK infrastructure spend is “holding up well”, whilst housebuilding remains stable, due to near-record levels of employment, low borrowing costs, good mortgage availability and the popular Help to Buy scheme. Partly offset by softness in general construction, particularly centred on London and the South East. Elsewhere, the £69.2m acquisition of Brandon Hire in Nov’17 has been successfully integrated with Hire Station. Some of the synergies will be realised later, albeit we estimate the deal should ultimately deliver c.£4m of annualised savings, related to procurement/cost improvements, economies of scale and greater asset/inventory utilisation. In turn, boosting the original RoI from 8.7% to >14% - materially above Vp’s ‘through cycle’ cost of capital. Lastly, despite experiencing a “softer start to FY20” than anticipated, Vp’s International division has recently enjoyed an uptick in activity levels across petrochemical and test & measurement. All told, we reiterate our adjusted FY20 PBT forecast of £49.6m and 1,075p/share valuation – offering 33% upside to patient investors.
Today's statement on current year's trading is relatively subdued compared with the company's rosy and upbeat annual and interim statements. The construction industry is in decline and there will be more competition for lower margins. VP's overseas divisions are small. VP has not reduced its net debt and overall liability since its expensive acquisition of Brandon Hire. The Competition and Market Authority will continue to investigate into VP for cartel malpractice. Fines and penalties by regulatory authorities throughout the world, including the UK,are getting heavier and harsher. VP's provision on this aspect is unlikely to be adequate. Moreover, it is quite possible that VP's other divisions may be investigated. The weekly chart did not bold well for a week, with the signal cutting down. Now the share price has fallen below £8 the next stop will be £7 testing its previous low.
