Safestyle UK – argues current “negative impact on short-term profitability” set to “deliver material benefit”… but is it?
Previously writing on technical fluid power products company Flowtech Fluidpower (FLO), despite house broker finnCap looking for a full-year underlying pre-tax profit rising above £12 million, generating earnings per share of 16.5p – up from 2018’s 14.7p, I noted concern regarding the ability to deliver “another year of solid progress”. Now “Trading Update - for the year to 31 December 2019” commencing; “Market conditions in the second half of 2019, in particular the final quarter, have been challenging”. Uh oh…
Previously writing on technical fluid power products supplier Flowtech Fluidpower (FLO), in October I concluded with the shares just below 120p that earnings forecasts suggest value but I’d want further evidence of delivery amidst the now prevailing “steadier” market conditions - particularly ability in terms of net cash generation. Today a half-year trading update…
Technical fluid power products supplier Flowtech Fluidpower (FLO) has updated on trading including “revenue during the first nine months of the current financial year increased by 54%, of which 6.7% was organic… Since reporting our HY1 2018 results and market update in September the business has experienced a solid trading period which remains in line with market expectations”. The shares have currently responded slightly higher, but a still sub 120p share price compares to approaching 180p last month. Hmmm…
“Specialist full service supplier of technical fluid power products and services”, Flowtech Fluidpower (FLO) updated on trading in July – but the half-year results announcement today is currently accompanied by an approaching 30% share price fall, towards 120p. Hmmm…
Writing in January on fluid power products supplier Flowtech (FLO) with the shares just below 130p, I noted that there looked potentially interesting value, but also “c.£13 million” of net debt and a downward forecast trend which deterred. The company has now announced a “successful fundraise of £10 million at 120p per share”…
Updating on its 2016 performance, fluid power products supplier Flowtech (FLO) notes that it intends to propose a 5% increased dividend “in line with current market expectations” and “expects underlying profit before tax will be in the range £7.0m to £7.2m”. How does the latter compare with expectations then?...
Flowtech Fluidpower (FLO) opens an announcement today with that it “is pleased to announce the further strengthening of its product offering in the hydraulics sector through the acquisition of Triple Six Limited, and provide an update ahead of the release of the company's half-year results”. The shares are currently 5% lower, at 105p, in response. Hmmm…
While Flowtech Fluidpower sounds like a company with a flash name, it can be seen on the daily chart that so far it has not been a great autumn in terms of the price action.
