Morning all!

Gear4Music ( £G4M ) – 215p – £45m – PER 28

Trading Update For The 13 Months To End March 2019 – Revenue up 36%, Customer numbers up 53%, Website conversion up from 3.25% to 3.4%. Casg at £5m (£3.5m last time). Margins impact with EBITDA to be no less than £2m.

There's loads of waffle in this update, too much for me to take in with limited time in the morning. Gut feel, I remain unconvinced here but will keep an eye out for revised Broker notes.
