Morning all!

Fulham Shore ( Fulham Shore (LON:FUL) ) – 12p – £66m – PER 179

Results For The 12 Months To End March 2019 – Revenue up 17%, from £54.7m to £64m with PBT of £1.4m (loss of -£0.1m last time) and Net Debt is down from £12m to £9.4m. The current year has stated well.

Still seems to be heading in the right direction but still not enough here for me.

Gateley Holdings ( Gateley Holdings (LON:GTLY) ) – 165p – £182m – PER 12

Results For The 12 Months To End April 2019 – Revenue up 20% from £86.1m to £103.5m, PBT up 8.9% from £14.6m to £15.9m, Adjusted EPS up 17.8% from 11.16p to 13.15p with the Total Dividend up 14.3%, Net Debt at £3.2m (£0.7m last time). The new year has started well.

Looks like there’s still some value here (with a 5%+ Yield on offer) but not quite enough to get me more interested yet.

MPAC ( MPAC (LON:MPAC) ) – 180p – £35m – PER 8

Results For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Trading is ahead of the Board’s and market expectations, FY Profit to be significantly above current market expectations.

Will be keeping an eye out for an update on the £400m (last time I checked) pension deficit as this is an encouraging update.

TPG ( £TP ) – 6.6p – £52m – PER 18.7

Trading Update For The 6 Months To End June 2019 – Significant increase in sales pipeline, expects to deliver FY in-line with market forecasts.

I continue to hold here and if FY is in-line I would hope to see a re-rating. 

As always, all comment most welcome!

My morning smallcap tweet: Albert squares up for delisting.

Albert Technologies (LON:ALB), XLMedia (LON:XLM), Surface Transforms (LON:SCE), £James, Cloudcall (LON:CALL), MPAC (LON:MPAC), Management Resource Solutions (LON:MRS), Lidco (LON:LID)

Albert Technologies (ALB) proposed to delist. "To support further growth, it will be necessary to seek additional funds and the Directors believe that it is in the best interests of the Company to secure a strategic or financial investor with knowledge of the company's core markets...These types of investors are unlikely to be forthcoming whilst the company remains admitted to trading on AIM." Board thonk ALB is undervalued on AIM and "negatively impacts the company's business."
XLMedia (XLM) tender offer at 80p, a 10% premium, for 9.5% max of shares.
Surface Transforms (SCE) wins first order of €2m PA (before tapering off during 2026) from German car mfr (OEM5) for one model. SCE will be the 2nd supplier of carbon ceramic brake discs for this car. Hopes for more models. "Pricing has been agreed across the potential range of platforms providing a link between increasing volumes and reduced product pricing."
Fisher (James) (FSJ) wins orders in the offshore renewable energy sector with a combined value of circa £30m.
Cloudcall Group (CALL) H1 trading. Rev up 30%. New orders received up 44%. Q2 monthly net user growth exceeded the target of 1,000 per month. CALL seems very pleased though FY F/C is for 42% rev hike.
Mpac Group (MPAC) H1 trading: ahead of the Board's and market expectations, Guides FY profit ignificantly above current market expectations.
Management Resource Solutions (MRS) solicitors' report on the takeover of Alerion Consulting mostly exonerates MRS but says board was not sufficiently involved in the process. A separate report on valuation of Alerion will be completed by end of month. Alerion was a newly incorporated company and its principal assets were unregistered intellectual property. Hmm.
LiDCO (LID) get regulatory approval for commercial sale in China for its latest cardiac output monitor with non-invasive technology. "Group has made limited sales to its Chinese distribution partner, and this approval enables us to re-launch with our latest monitor to a very important, rapidly growing market."

Mpac Group plc, a global leader in 'Make, Pack, Monitor and Service' high speed packaging solutions, is pleased to announce that it has concluded negotiations with the Trustee of the legacy 'Molins U.K. Pension Fund' in relation to the June 2018 triennial actuarial valuation and associated deficit recovery plan.

The actuarial deficit in the scheme has reduced from £69.9m at 30 June 2015 to £35.2m at 30 June 2018 on a technical provisions basis. The actuarial deficit is now expected to be eliminated in July 2024, compared to August 2029 under the previous valuation. The current annual deficit recovery payments have been maintained but will now cease more than five years earlier than was agreed under the previous valuation.

Mpac Group plc, a global leader in 'Make, Pack, Monitor and Service' high speed packaging solutions,

Having had a run in with 'management speak' already today I am minded  to reply :

"so you make cardboard boxes?"

With all due deference to Edmund Blackadder : "what we are talking about in privy terms is the latest in front wall fresh air orifices combined with a wide capacity gutter installation below."
