Morning All!

Blancco Technology ( Blancco Technology (LON:BLTG) ) – 7-Nov-2017 – 54.5p – £34.9m – PER 6.68

Final Results For The Year Ended June 2017 – This is in the “too hard for me pile” with the update being based mainly on adjusted 2016 figures. Stand out is no final Dividend.

The fact the latest results are just too complicated for me to figure out – And, the fact there will be no final Dividend is enough for me to be avoiding this one for now.

Castleton Technology ( Castleton Technology (LON:CTP) ) – 7-Nov-2017 – 62.75p – £49.4m – PER 12.3

Unaudited Interim Results For The 6 Months To End September 2017 –  Revenues up 10.9% to £10.8m (£9.7m last time), PBT £0.2m (£0.04m last time).

On a PER of 12.3 there’s little to excite here at present.

Ideagen ( Ideagen (LON:IDEA) ) – 7-Nov-2017 – 88.5p – £177m – PER 19.8

Trading Update For The 6 Months To End October 2017 – Strong H1 and expects Revenue and adjusted EBITDA to be significantly ahead of the same period last year – Trading in-line with market expectations for the full year to end April 2018. Cash is up to £5.9m (end April 2017, £4.8m).

Generally - Like the look of this but that PER of 19.8 looks a little too rich.

UP Global Sourcing Holdings ( UP Global Sourcing Holdings (LON:UPGS) ) – 7-Nov-2017 – 88p – £71.2m – PER 11.4

Full Year Results To End July 2017 – Revenue up 39.1% to £110.0m (£79.0m last time), PBT up 18.7% to £7.4m (£6.3m last time), Net debt of £6.0m (£10.0m last time) - Full year dividend of 5.115p per share (3.32p last time). Although current trading is in-line, as previously announced “the Board therefore anticipates that revenue growth for FY 18 is unlikely. In addition, approximately £4-5m of FY 18's revenue will now be recognised in FY 19 as a result of the move from FOB to landed arrangements with a key European customer”.

Attractive enough except for that sting in the tail – “Revenue growth for FY 18 is…

My morning smallcap tweet:

Paragon Entertainment (LON:PEL), European Wealth (LON:EWG), Feedback (LON:FDBK), Blancco Technology (LON:BLTG)

Paragon Entertainment (PEL) FY trading. Rev broadly in line with the Board's expectations at £15.0m but EBITDA significantly lower than previous expectations at ~£0.7m. Deferred orders, project delays and cost overruns.
European Wealth Group (EWG) buys Newbridge Securities Corporation and Newbridge Financial Services Group for $1. Comes with $17.6m liabilities. $16m payableon completion. Gains $1.7bn AuM.
Feedback (FDBK) FY loss £300k (loss £250k). "We are acutely aware that [TexRAD's] development has taken longer than originally expected, however we are confident that our rigorous regulatory review will pave the way for new products and therefore maximise the potential for TexRAD's clinical use worldwide."
Blancco Tech Group (BLTG) FY rev up to 31% to £27.7m, boosted by restatement of £1.2m from 2016 to this yr. Adj-cont EPS 3.02p (2016 restated: 4.16p). EPS-cont -5.20p (2016 restated: -5.17p). Passes final div (f/c 1.4p for final). Outlook: "The business is targeting revenue growth for the 2018 financial year between 6% and 16% with an adjusted operating profit margin between 8% and 12%." Is that good?
