Falanx: New business unit - so what? Grrrrr - still a buy (or hold at worst)

In a very strong contender for non news of the week Falanx (FLX) has announced the creation of a new business unit, Falanx Cyber Technologies. Right. 

So Falanx has been working hard on cyber threats for more than a year. And the man heading up the new unit is Jay Abbott who has been with the company for a good while. Falanx says

"Falanx Cyber Technologies uses knowledge gained in Falanx Cyber Defence, our managed service business, to develop and produce a range of proprietary technology to continuously improve our 'Security-as-a-Service' offering. We also distribute through channel partners to the wider SME and Major Enterprise market."

Whatever. It is hard to see this announcement as a bombshell although we note the assertion

This form of rapid technology development, based on real-time operations, carries an extremely low cost and we therefore remain on track to achieve profitability and positive cash flow next financial year

That is a bit more like it. Falanx shares are cheap. What we want - and expect - is hard metrics on current trading and new contract wins. We hope for that around the period end in late March and early April. That will give the shares, now 6.25p-6.75p,  a re-rate so, while bored senseless by the latest RNS, we suggest a stroing hold - at worst -  ahead of those hard numbers.

We expect to be selling at well over 8p within two months.
