i wondered who the selling insti was gonna be ; so Traction essentially buys FT's shares (and some others from somewhere else - guess we'll find out where the other 3.78% came from). Who has 3.78% of the company ? AXA is / was around there I think.

IF 13 m were traded and 6.6 bought by AB, was the other trade the sell? someone had to sell for them to buy? Tiger

AB Traction are not necessarily an activist investor and at the time they were involved with Waterman I think they were their only investment outside of Scandinavia. Clearly the valuation at £22m prior to today's rise offers huge value for anyone who believes in the potential turnaround. AB seem to, as do I and I have added to my holding this morning.Only 6.6m of the 13m shares traded are accountable to AB so I am also keen who the other parties are I these transactions.All positive stuff anyway....

Definitely a positive development. They won't sit passively by here, but will chivvy the management to create shareholder value. A small filip of relief after a dreadful share price run!!

They're an activist manager, so one step away from Private Equity. Still a pretty positive development as they will not sit passively on their investment.

AB Traction holding RNS seems to have kicked off a bit of buying interest. Not sure why though since they seem to be an investment company not a trade player. I guess maybe WYG & AB Tractions holding in Hifab might make sense for consolidation: hTTp://www.traction.se/en/our-projects/ hTTp://www.hifab.se/net/SE/International Still think WYG will eventually be taken out given the consolidation in the sector but not convinced this holding RNS is the starting gun that some obviously think it is.

I saw the trades going through a couple of days ago. Close to 10%. This puts us firmly "on the market" for a bid. Tiger

Quick read up on them on their website says they are active with their investments, assisting management etc. Interesting they were major holders in Waterman, reckon they will push for a sale?

Look who has just taken a 9% stake - interesting ?? AB Traction is a private equity firm specializing in buyouts, PIPES, and restructurings. It invests in public and private companies. In private companies, the firm invests in turnaround projects, reconstructions, management buy-outs, and buy-ins.

I will revisit once the Annual Report is out. It’s a value play at some point, but maybe not quite yet. No rush.

I had a very open mind about their results for this year given the early stage of the turnaround and various headwinds. On the positive side they seem to have pretty much stabilised the operating business and hopefully the actions taken to-date by the new management will provide a stable footing going forward.Order book is also still strong.On the down side, the write off of North Associates is disappointing given it cost WYG circa £5m only 2-3 years ago and I believe part of the cause for its failure was lack of integration but the Cumbria market has also been tough.Management have also highlighted that 2019 isn't going to look much better however I would rather them be cautious and realistic.This was never going to be an overnight turnaround and the valuation remains compelling. Personally I have been a little over optimistic to-date but I firmly believe that value will be realised over the medium term and I look forward to reading the full results.

Same old story unfortunately. Adjusted earnings. No real profits. No real cash generation. Not changed in 5 years. Not tempted to join the party / hangover at this stage!

was hoping for a bit better than that if i'm honest. still not another profit warning which is good (!)and suggestion is operating profit is moving up - so OK, slowly, slowly not sure i was expecting the exceptional losses they have mentioned either hhmm - firmly in the bottom drawer

Yes he was there only a short while relatively - I am not sure who instigated the sale of Sweett or whether Currie and Brown just came knocking but I know WSP were very interested for a long while but they missed at by not wanting to dig a little deeper.With a £170m order book and valued at £28m mcap the vultures will be circling here and they have only stayed away until now I perceive due to the old management and very poor cash profile. Patience will be rewarded.
