Morning all!

K3 Business Technology ( K3 Business Technology (LON:KBT) ) – 226p – £97.1m – PER 21.9

Trading Update For The 12 Months To End November 2018 – Expects FY to be slightly ahead of market expectations with Net Debt down from £4.3m to £0.7m.

This is looking much more interesting now and it’s on my Watchlist.

Safestyle UK ( Safestyle UK (LON:SFE) ) – 81.5p – £67.5m – PER 19.8

Trading Update – LBT of circa -£8.5m expected. Expects 2019 to be ahead of current market expectations.

I would rather utilise funds elsewhere for a year while (even Bitcoin, sorry, I mean Cash) waiting to see how this turns out – Remains on my Avoid list for now.

As always, all comment most welcome!

My morning smallcap tweet: LIDCO puts a lid on profit.

Safestyle UK (LON:SFE), Summit Therapeutics (LON:SUMM), K3 Business Technology (LON:KBT), Scisys (LON:SSY), Lidco (LON:LID), Fireangel Safety Technology (LON:FA.)

Safestyle UK (SFE) warns FY U/L pretax -£8.2m to -£8.6m, but that's due to significant increase in its contracted workforce in canvass, sales, surveying and installations operations. This has boosted orders. Also inc marketing spend. Guides performance in 2019 ahead of current market expectations.
Summit Therapeutics (SUMM) CFO leaves end Dec. He is thanked.
K3 Business Technology Group (KBT) guides FY results slightly ahead of market expectations.
SCISYS Group (SSY) wins €11.2m contract with Thales Alenia Space.
LiDCO Group (LID) warns FY rev flat. Blames "deferral of revenues as the Company makes more rapid progress to transition existing large UK customers to its High Usage Programme (HUP) business model, an anticipated order from South East Asia being delayed, and longer sales cycles in the US."
FireAngel Safety Technology (FA.) wins contracts from 2 housing associations in Scotland. Tot 9800 homes.
