I Read The News Today Oh Boy! 22-May-2019

Morning all!

Boku Inc ( Boku Inc (LON:BOKU) ) – 131p – £320m – PER 57

AGM Statement And Trading Update – 2019 in-line, will hit at least $52m in Revenue. There's also a new partnership and integration annouced today.

Having attended the presentation at Mello I bought in here. Not my usual purchase as it required faith in growth kicking in in 2 years time, this update and other 2 annoucements seem quite reassuring.

Medica Group ( Medica (LON:MGP) ) – 152p – £169m – PER 17.7

AGM Statement And Trading Update – 2019 started well, trading in-line, expects FY to be in-line. CEO replacement annouced, seems smooth and friendly.

Looks about fairly priced here (at best) based on the Stockopedia forecasts.

Volvere ( Volvere (LON:VLE) ) – 1125p – £35m – PER 16.4

Results For The 12 Months To End December 2018 – A steady ship – To quote the CEO "Group net assets at record £40.4m and £34.1m of cash. What is not to like" - NAV is £12.50.

I sold out here last wondering what they were going to do with the cash pile – Should have been more patient! 

As always, all comment most welcome!

My morning smallcap tweet: Dull day

£C21, Zinc Media (LON:ZIN), Westminster (LON:WSG)

21st Century Technology (C21) -year contract renewal with Arriva UK Bus. No £££.
Zinc Media Group (ZIN) wins new commissions worth over £5m. Comprises two returning series and a new repeatable series. No period given but says "provides a solid start to the 2019/20 financial year".
Westminster Group (WSG) extends its onerous £2.245m convertible to 30 June 2020. Hopes to pay it sooner as it's now flexible. 15% PA and conversion price cranking down from 15p to 10p in 2020.

I think Medica (LON:MGP) get the prize for the most uninformative in-line trading update for a while - yes, things are in line, but there are no numbers at all, not even an indication in the increase in the number of radiologists.

There is an NAV-inline statement from Draper Esprit (LON:GROW) as well, with an update on a couple of investments and partial sale in Transferwise. I hold, personally I see god long term value... I just hope they don't announce another placing.
