Morning all!

Innovaderma ( Innovaderma (LON:IDP) ) – 168p – £24.2m – PER 22.7

Final Results For The 12 Months To End June 2018 – Revenue up 21% to £10.7m (FY2017: £8.9m), PBT £0.67m (FY2017: £1.03m) due to one off investments. Net Cash of £1.9m (as at 30 June 2017: £0.21m). Note: Skinny Tan is going into Boots, 1,000+ stores in Q1 2019 (joining Superdrug). Strong growth expected in 2019.

Will keep this on my Watchlist to keep an eye out for updates – Really needs to start improving not just Revenues but PBT and EPS too, but this is perhaps now due.

Alliance Pharma ( Alliance Pharma (LON:APH) ) – 91p – £468.8m – PER 18.3

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2018 – Revenue up 10% (12% CC) with Underlying Basic EPS up 4%, Net Debt stands at £86.3m, £72.3m last time. The Interim Dividend is up 10% to 0.487p.

On a PER of almost 20 I remain Neutral for now.

Cello ( Cello Health (LON:CLL) ) – 133p – £139.3m – PER 14.9

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End June 2018 – Revenue flat, with Statutory PBT up 23.5% and Statutory Basic EPS up 9.3%. Net Debt is down about 10% and the Interim Dividend is up 4.8%.

I said this last time “Seems like an OK company but there’s not enough here to make me want to invest at present”, I will remain Neutral.

Elektron Technology ( Elektron Technology (LON:EKT) ) – 48.5p – £90.3m – PER 30.7

Interim Results For The 6 Months To End July 2018 – Revenue up 17% to £15.9m, Operating Profit up 180% to £1.4m (H1 FY18: £0.5m), Net Cash at £6.8m (31 July 2017: £2.1m; 31 January 2018: £5.2m). Positive outlook for H2 and beyond, FY to be in-line with recently upgraded expectations.

I am tempted here, it’s going on my Watchlist – Forecasts look good, even on a PER of 30 or so, perhaps it’s time to take the plunge!

Quixant ( Quixant (LON:QXT) ) – 479p – £317.8m –…

My morning smallcap tweet:

Integumen (LON:SKIN), Big Sofa Technologies (LON:BST), Cambridge Cognition Holdings (LON:COG), Totally (LON:TLY), Hardide (LON:HDD), Randall & Quilter Investment Holdings (LON:RQIH)

Integumen (SKIN) has received a formal demand for payment of certain amounts due and claimed to be due to 11% holder Donald Nicholson for services provided to the Company. Mr Nicholson,previously agreed that these amounts are not due to be paid before 9 July 2019. "These demands for immediate payment are without merit." Also expects to complete the final elements of the Subscription, the Placing and acquisition of a stake in Cellulac, as previously RNSed, shortly.
Big Sofa Technologies (BST) wins $350k contract from PepsiCo.
Cambridge Cognition (COG) signs first NeuroVocalix contract for a four week study. NeuroVocalix enables the remote assessment of voice-based cognitive measures.
Totally (TLY) wins contract worth £721k PA for 3 years with 2 year option.
Hardide (HDD) guides FY rev ahead of market expectations and in excess of £4.4m, EBITDA in line.
Randall & Quilter (RQIH) to buy GLOBAL U.S. Holdings Inc from AXA for $80.5m, a small discount to NAV. GLOBAL owns Global Re US, a New York insurance company in run-off. "Should regulatory approval be received and completion occurs before the end of 2018, it is expected to result in the Group's profit for full year 2018 being substantially ahead of market expectations." How? Will RQIH write an instant NAV gain?

Thanks for the excellent early update Matylda. I was in a rush this morning so was a big help, I decided to take the plunge with Mission Marketing (LON:TMMG) as the outlook sounds very promising and all the ranks look great. I suppose the only thing that still disappoints just slightly is that turnover growth is only around 10%, but a PER of 6 (based on estimates) seems peanuts.
