Dear, oh dear – every time we get an announcement from AIM-listed project management and technical consultancy purveyor WYG (WYG) the news seems to go from bad to worse, and hats off to Steve Moore for his unremitting bearishness on this. The latest news is that the banks have agreed to waive the 31 March covenant test (which the company had previously warned it would fail) but the 0.6p dividend per share - which was declared on 4 December 2018, payable on 4 April - has been cancelled. How embarrassing is that?
Previously writing on project management and technical consultancy WYG, I concluded with the shares at circa 35p in March; Singer now expects cash outflows in that year, including further ‘separately disclosed costs’, to see net debt to… £9.8 million!

A “Trading Update” announcement from WYG plc (WYG) commences that “the board continues to expect revenue for the current year to exceed £160m representing continuing year-on-year growth in line with market expectations. However, for the reasons explained below, the board has revised its expectation of near term operating performance”… Not upwards I’m guessing!…
A “Trading Update” announcement from WYG plc (WYG). Should be ok as the company’s December half-year report emphasised “a sound platform from which to deliver a full year performance in line with current market expectations”, with “good forward visibility” (as well as noting its “winning the Association for Consultancy and Engineering's Best UK Business Performance Award for a large firm and the AIM Awards Best Investor Communication Award”). Er, what? The shares currently down approaching 20%, at just over 100p?!?...
Project management and technical consultancy, WYG plc (WYG) has announced a £3.2 million acquisition and that “we anticipate that operating profit for the full year will be modestly ahead of current market consensus figure of £5.25m”.

Reviewing AIM-listed global project management and technical consultancy WYG plc (WYG) at the end of last month I concluded that it ‘is a recovery story which looks to have further to run’ (see HERE), whilst brokerage N+1 Singer noted “on a 12 month view, given recent trading momentum (and forecast upgrades), we believe that WYG shares are likely to breach 100p”.
