Morning all!

Gateley Holdings ( Gateley Holdings (LON:GTLY) ) – 166p – £180.0m – PER 13.9

Preliminary Results For The 12 Months To End April 2018 – Revenue up 11.0% to £86.1m (2017: £77.6m), PBT up 11.7% to £14.6m (2017: £13.1m), Basic EPS up 17.0% to 11.03p (2017: 9.43p) with a FY Dividend of 7.0p (2017: 6.6p).

Looks OK and I still have a feeling it’s fairly priced here - I remain Neutral.

Ideagen ( Ideagen (LON:IDEA) ) – 123.5p – £250.5m – PER 25.7

Preliminary Results For The 12 Months To End April 2018 – Revenue up 33% to £36.1m (FY2017: £27.1m), Adjusted PBT up 40% to £9.7m (FY2017: £6.9m), Adjusted diluted EPS up 33% to 4.19p (FY2017: 3.16p) and the FY Dividend is up 15%. Trading since the year end has been robust.

I am tempted here but the ROCE and Op Mgn as well as the forecast +14% growth in EPS for 2019 are just putting me off enough. Will remain Neutral for now and keep an eye out for broker notes – Tempted (it will go on my Watchlist at least)!

Amino Technologies ( Amino Technologies (LON:AMO) ) – 203.5p – £147.9m – PER 13.2

Results For The 6 Months To End May 2018 – In-line, with Revenue down 17% and a Statutory Loss of -£0.1m versus +£6.3m last time. Interim Dividend is up 10%. With a seasonal H2 weighting, still confident of meeting FY expectations.

The 10% Interim Dividend seems like a sweetener here where H2 weighting will make up for what looks like a woeful H1. I will remain Neutral.

Synectics ( Synectics (LON:SNX) ) – 213p – £37.9m – PER 12.1

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End May 2018 – Revenue up 3% to £34.7m (2017: £33.7m), Order book up 18%, PBT up 12% to £1.5m (2017: £1.3m), Diluted EPS 5.9p (2017: 6.1p), Strong cash generation and net cash of £9.1m at 31 May 2018 (2017: £1.8m), Interim dividend increased to 1.2p (2017: 1.0p). FY to be in-line.

Quite like these results (and Stockpedia likes the stock, StockRank 95) but I still can’t be tempted…

My morning smallcap tweet: A fine lack of transparency at SFE.

Image Scan Holdings (LON:IGE), Ideagen (LON:IDEA), Safestyle UK (LON:SFE)

Image Scan Holdings (IGE) to buy Todd Research, UK developer and manufacturer of X-ray systems for security, for £3.25m. Funded by placing, subscription and vendor loan notes. £1.25m placing by bookbuild.
Ideagen (IDEA) FY in line but says rev £1m ahead of 'original expectations'. Er, when was that origin?
Safestyle UK (SFE) Court hearing upheld a number of injunctive orders previously made preventing new rival Safeglaze UK and certain named individuals from undertaking various actions. Those Orders have been made on an interim basis. Fails to stop it using Safeglaze UK brand. No mention of yesterday's fine of £120k for aggressive sales techniques and lying to customers. Perhaps it doesn't want to draw shareholders' attention to it.

Flowtech Fluidpower (LON:FLO) - their H1 update looks quite positive with organic revenue of 9.1% and overall revenue up 66%, with good gross margins.

Somero Enterprises Inc (LON:SOM) share price has done well, but the word "solid" appears quite a bit and this to me implies 'lowish' growth; they are still failing to break into China.

Thanks - I missed the Flowtech Fluidpower (LON:FLO) update - Sold out there recently, this was my comment "Sold out here on the 12th July after reading a broker note on Research Tree which showed EPS of 14.0 2018A, 16.0 2019E and 17.6 2020E – OK enough on a PER of 10.3 but with the market being negative since the AGM statement I decided to move on."

Somero Enterprises Inc (LON:SOM) - Kind of agree there.

Gateley Holdings (LON:GTLY) has produced impressive results since IPO in 2015. One thing, though, prompted me to sell in April - probably overcautious of me!
This was the level of receivables, which appears to be growing steadily. It's worth also looking at Note 13 re overdue invoices and impairments.
Since GTLY is focussed on the construction sector there just might be problems ahead.
