I’d be intrigued to know what you do for a living, conscientious objectors?

I do get it, because I work in business, just that you are being irrational. The company I work for received £25K back in March, 2K in November, and £4K this time. We were furloughed because our jobs are important to us, and the business would not have survived with the payments due to our suppliers, and the inability to generate cash flow as a result of being forced to close. You are the ones who fail to grasp the impact of forced closures on businesses.

As for moral conscience, thousands of companies that were asked to close back in March 2020 received grants in compensation which they will not have to pay back, some fraudulently making claims, all the bounce back loans not used for the purpose of sustaining the business, and on and on. Think about it!

It is not a moral obligation to pay it back at all, businesses such as this have had their opportunity to continue trading naturally destroyed by coronavirus restrictions. It is like suggesting the Chinese should be held accountable, and should compensate the rest of the world for the value destruction amassed by the rest of the world. I understand what you are saying, but it is all hypothetical, do you know exactly if and how much this company has benefitted from the furlough, and should they not have ceased all those apprenticeships, and the aspirations of young people, and the fired remainder of the workforce bar the ones necessary to continue fulfilling the work in progress and such contracts. You are being totally unrealistic, why not suggest Rolls Royce, or any other company of comparable size.

We're well aware why the business has cash, it has consistently held high levels of cash for years... Don't assume people are ignorant just because we have a moral conscience.I agree struggling business in terms of availability to pay it back shouldn't, but ZYT is not in that camp, yes they aren't making profit in this environment but that's not the point I'm trying to make.This is one of those things where if you disagree it is based on a fundamental belief and it won't change so not a huge point in discussing it. I believe it is a moral obligation and you don't, fair enough.

Strongly agree with you here bookbroker. The company were clearly impacted and should not be penalised in having to pay back money from the furlough scheme used for its stated intentions just because they hold net cash. If we're going down that route, maybe ZYT should not take "patent box" tax relief also, because we can afford not to? Maybe I shouldn't put my money in an ISA because I can afford not to? It's nonsense thinking!

Higher taxes are inevitable, there are going to pay rises for NHS staff, more police, and more of everything relating to Govt. It is time to start asking people to pay for doctor’s appointments, reduced payments to families with more than two children, etc. Large families are a huge drain on resources relating to healthcare.

That is without doubt, personally I think the Govt. has been generous to big and small business alike, but the small businesses are the backbone of any economy. Higher inflation will reduce the Govt. debt through higher taxation revenue, but they are currently being very generous on VAT and longer payment times for corporation and personal taxes. It is no good singling out any specific company, but the Govt. will be paying higher unemployment benefits if they curtail business tax relief.

I already do that (and see the need) and hence the imperative for the Govt to recoup as much furlough as possible. Otherwise, it's much higher taxes.

And if you hold stock here I suggest you sell the holding, there are plenty worse off that would welcome your largesse by giving them the proceeds, just take a trip to your local food bank and start dishing out the money.

Most investors have seen dividends slashed, and capital value on most stocks diminished. Ever heard of the risk premium you pay to hold stocks!

Amazing that posters here have such a conscience, have any of you ever received any benefit such as free health care, child support. Maybe you should think about paying it back if you can afford to, as should you have any spare cash I’m sure the Govt. would appreciate your sense of obligation.

This company is not accumulating cash through the scheme, I can’t believe the ignorance of posters here, the reason it has higher levels of cash year on year is the fact that they have worked through their inventory completing existing contracts, and not deploying new capital to supplies. Read the bloody reports!

book, it's about the way a business is run. And if you want higher taxes, James, then by all means support a high pay out to shareholders. All companies that can - Zyt can - should pay back the furlough before paying out to us. It's about moral and societal purpose not what's legal in a narrow sense. The purpose of the furlough was to prevent mass unemployment and the societal ramifications of that. We all benefitted from that and we should all the bear the pain. Most investors have been barely affected by the pandemic.

Games Workshop and this business have no similarity whatsoever, for one it has a unique IP. in terms of its offering through market profile. This company is in a more competitive landscape, the cash in this situation is an absolute Godsend, so be thankful that it will live to fight another day. Had coronavirus not poleaxed the global economy, and travel in particular, this company’s marketplace would have remained intact, as stated this time last year. GW. is in the fortunate position of creating a marketplace that does not require movement of folk in the sense of travel and leisure, but more the experience. That can be done online, and that is how they developed their business model. Gaming is off course now firmly in that direction, so ZYT have to develop their product knowledge for other markets. That will require capital and time, so be thankful for small mercies.

One more thought. I suspect the business will emerge stronger from the pandemic and that management will seek to diversify the customer base more. I suspect that the success in gaming meant they got a bit lazy (nothing wrong with this. we all do it!) as the orders came through the door. A company like this, should also have a stated aim of making the best touchscreen products and forget the shareholder guff. If they focus on the former, the latter takes care of itself. There's too much reference in the Annual Report about the cash. It should be a given that the company is run in a disciplined manner. The number one reason to invest in the Annual Report and I quote is "Strong net assets and cash provide sound basis for growth" This is often the worst basis for long term investment. By all means, return the surplus cash but, if investors want to make good long term returns, the answer lies in the quality of the business and not the quantity of cash. Check out companies like Games Workshop whose stated aim is to make the best table to miniatures in the world and to exploit the associated IP.

Why should they, the point off the furlough was to keep the staff in the job during the lockdowns, otherwise they would have been made redundant, off which a considerable number of the labour force have unfortunately received their P45’s. Do you understand the reasons behind the furlough scheme, clearly not! Think of the number of JDW staff on the scheme, the whole labour force apart from directors and essential staff to maintain the properties, talking thousands there.

I sincerely hope they pay back the furlough before any share buy or distribution. I know they are not legally obliged to do so but not to sends a bad signal. And I'm sure that the Govt will make life hard for those that took furlough and then opted for a large dividend/buyback. VTongo

Best to keep the market informed, can certainly see share buyback announcement coming at the AGM, so nice plan to have something good to say at that point. They have the info. about trading performance currently, so get it out in the public domain.

Surprised they issued this TU now and not leave it until the AGM. Outlook comments are a repeat of the Finals a few weeks ago on 8th Dec. I hold shares long term but also have a trading position intended for a hopeful run up to the AGM. Oh well, I've now added a few more to that position in the hope of a rise back to the 150p area.

Looks like support coming in now, see by the day’s end, a sharp reaction but full year results will hold more clues.

It is also clear that any resumption of gaming and casino reopenings in Macau and the like will be key to Zytronic order book improving. I note that Zytronic recent tweeting activity has centred on the healthcare markets (out of hours ordering from a screen, hover touch and anti-microbial surfaces for hospitals, etc). Keep an eye out for progress there too.

Kiwihope, agree that there can be no certainty (if there was, the share price would reflect that). However, they own some tremendous IP and some of their technology is leading edge. I think there is too much focus on their old image of clunky ATM machine screen suppliers and not enough on their hover touch and sliding screen tech. An enterprise value of just £6M tells me that. They talked of returning surplus cash and the current share price suggests they should get on with it while its cheap for them to do so. That should help galvanise investors’ minds a little.
