Yes, and now also fewer shares in issue: "Following the conclusion of the Tender Offer on 25 February 2021, the number of shares in issue reduced by 28.8% to 11,419,152 as 4,624,889 shares were purchased at a price of 145p and a cost of £6.7m."

Looks like the MM’s are going to open this slightly down, which strikes me as nuts. However, the US tech sector was trashed last night so maybe there will be a general markdown out of the gate.

The tenor of the interims is about what I hoped to see and summed up by this phrase: ”However, from January onwards we have seen an improving monthly average order intake, and it is particularly pleasing that the Gaming and Financial sectors have made a major contribution to the improvement.” The brevity of the interim report is classic Zytronic, with minimal information but a handful of hints. The increase in orders since January suggests to me that the second half will see the bulk of the recovering profitability by way of sales volumes. The path of recoverability on the bottom line could be steep and I hope that will result in the resumption of a final dividend.

Singer has switched to the offer at 175. Either their buyer is finally done or they are looking to shake out some more loose stock. We must be due another holdings RNS if Woodland were the continuing buyer. Must be pushing 7% if they were.

On cue after the close, late 175p print for 25,000. More to come I am sure. Why are people selling into this now nearly two months of solid and obvious accumulation by an investor? Either way, I hope there is a good story to tell at the interims next Tuesday.

I agree it is all about the outlook. What I do know is that recently the company were falling over themselves to pay 145p and a new investor has been sucking up all the supply to pay 170p for 4% and, on my calculations has since taken it up to 6% assuming the same buyer has been paying for the 170p trades since 20th April. N+1 Singer continues to be firm on the bid absorbing all the small selling, now at 171p which suggests the next declaration of buying trades will be nearer 175p.

Given the tone of recent announcements, I don't see how these interim results can be good but hope to read that business is now improving.

Interim results to be published next Tuesday 11th May. Should give some clues to current trading and prospects for recovery of traditional markets like casinos and exhibitions. https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/zytronic-ZYT/share-news/Zytronic-PLC-Notification-of-Interim-Results/85014900

Dangersimpson2, lol. Singer still bidding being the 170 bid quote. They will pay 171.5 for 10k and 170 for larger amounts. I am guessing the brokers feel they have squeezed out all the easy hanging fruit below 170 and are now encouraging more to sell at higher bids. If Woodland is still in the market perhaps the next lot will go at 175?

Sturmey, yes you are right, it’s all down to their discretionary clients as I see the previous disclosure in March had them going over 5% and now they are back under. Should get another disclosure from Woodland soon as they have picked up a good 200k since the 20th if all the big round numbers at 170p are theirs. That should take them close to 6%.

BonesRe the Canaccord holding, my guess is that this is the sum of many small holdings of private investors who hold their shares in their Canaccord accounts. But I could be wrong.

Cannacord been taking advantage of the recent buyer, reduced by another 94k to just below 5%. The buyer at 170 has still been busy these last couple of days and must surely be over 5% now assuming it’s still Woodland. Singer is still on the bid at 165 despite Winterflood marking down on sales. Seems a good time for Woodland to approach Cannacord and do a deal for the remaining 5% if they are that keen!

Thanks all. Another 50k this morning notched at 170 after someone dumped 44k at 167.5. Certainly seem serious dudes and this must take them close to 5%.

Bones - well done (I must admit I thought you were seeing things), looks like you forced their hand to make a disclosure too.

Around 25k of sales today at increasing prices so maybe another similar delayed purchase to come?

Illiswilgig, the BNY bank is a nominee who would hold the shares on behalf of the beneficiary, in this case Woodlands. I’d be very surprised if whoever filled the form in got the company name wrong but it’s possible I suppose!

Gleach23, I don’t think they are done yet. The RNS says the threshold was passed last Tuesday 20th. There have been more chunks bought since then and today there has been more lemming like selling and the price is rigidly stuck. The MM seems to be staying put. As for why they declared at 4%, they probably just didn’t get round to it earlier. Maybe as we are talking about it in public they were reminded? The declaration rules are often ignored for weeks at the AIM level.

Nice call bones! Do you think the fact that an RNS has now been declared suggests the buying is done for the moment? I guess the clue will be in the reported trades after hours in the coming days but I'm just curious as to what prompts the RNS. If one is required after 3% is breached then presumably one could have been issued sooner, or do they wait for a pause in their accumulation?

Bones - curious indeed! You were spot on with the 4% and the need for an RNS. Well done! I see that the full name of the share holder is given as The Bank of New York (nominees) Ltd. Which does appear to be a UK subsidiary of BNY Mellon? I agree that it seems unlikely that woodland investment management ltd is purchasing on behalf of a BNY Mellon subsidiary. Also that there is a UK registered company 'Woodlands Asset Management Ltd' which also appears to be a UK subsidiary of a US company. curiouser and curiouser...... cheers

Bit of an odd one. That company seems to be a private company run by a guy called Angus Hanton who seems to be a director of quite a few companies in various businesses. Even Woodland Investment Management Ltd is described in Companies House records as being active in these categories: 02100 - Silviculture and other forestry activities 68100 - Buying and selling of own real estate “Woodlands” being a better description than “Investments”! That said, their balance sheet has a few million on it described as “Investments”. It cannot be ascertained what these are, land or shares? Their website seems to be here: https://www.woodlands.co.uk/about-us/ Googling the company threw up a blog written by some guy in Wales who noted that the company seems to be buying up slabs of woodland in Wales and, according to him, smells of commercialisation and building of property. Decide for yourself here: https://jacothenorth.net/blog/tag/woodland-investment-management-ltd/ Unless the RNS has the company name wrong, this seems to be the new owner of 4% of Zytronics!

Looks like 25k today. I’ve looked back over the trades since this buying programme kicked in around 16th March since when Singer N+1 has stayed fast and hard on the bid at 165p. Since then, there have been 416,500 shares traded at 170p with all small sellers below that. 416,500 is approaching 4% of the current issued shares. Either there will be a declaration soon or there are separate buyers which seems unlikely. The more this keeps on, the more I will believe it is the company’s broker. They were short 2.2M shares in the tender offer so, if it is them, there could be a way to go. Maybe there is a dispensation on declarations until the broker has finished? No idea if true though. That’s why I am surprised that people are selling when there is a clear buyer.
