Smallcap Sweep. 01-Mar-18

Koovs needs a new script writer, I've seen all these jokes before. One still made me laugh though.

Carpetshite (CPR) now guides small underlying pre-tax loss in FY. "The Group is therefore proactively engaged in constructive discussions with its bank lenders in order to ensure it continues to comply with the terms of its prevailing bank facilities. The bank lenders have indicated that they currently remain fully supportive." Two words in there to make it sound better than it is. Also examining "a range of options to accelerate the turnaround of the business and strengthen its balance sheet."
Tandem (TND) FY trading. Rev down 4% but net profit expected to be significantly up. Toys'r'us bankruptcy: Tandem had stopped selling to them so no bad debt but "this has and will continue to have an adverse impact on revenue." 2018 trading more challenging. High levels of stock some of national retailers expected to have a negative impact. Rev to date and order book are currently down.
Plastics Capital (PLA) Curse of H2 weighting. H2 'very strong' but not enough. Bearings bearing down on group. Guides rev and adjusted EBITDA marginally below current market expectations
K3 Capital Group (K3C) FY trading is substantially ahead of management's expectations, guides rev £16m, EBITDA £7m.
Mi-Pay Group (MPAY) £260k placing at 12.5p, a 13% premium. Board musical chairs - chmn, CEO, CFO rotate. Trading in line.
Indigovision Group (IND) FY rev as guided, adj EPS -29.6c (+9c) 'before deferred tax'. Div passed. "It is expected that considerable progress in delivering the Group's strategy will be made in 2018 but this will not be reflected fully in it's operating results until 2019, consequently management is targeting to at least break even in the current year." Current trading encouraging.
Alpha Financial Markets Consulting (AFM) guides FY profits ahead of current market expectations.
Koovs (KOOV) Strategic Acceleration Plan up to £50m of further investment will be required to fund the acceleration plan. Koovs "continues to be actively engaged in a dialogue with potential capital providers, whilst prudently managing cash resources until the first round of new financing has been closed and the next stage of major capital investment in the Koovs journey begins." Trading is crap -guides H2 sales down, FY rev £14.5m (£18.6m). EBITDA -£14.4m (-£19.6m). "There is a clear opportunity to capitalise on the platform that we have built to unlock superior shareholder value over the coming years." LOL.

Countrywide (CWD) FY. Having sacked the CEO CWD discovers a sudden honesty: "2017 A DISAPPOINTING YEAR...Industry expertise in all areas of our business is key. Within Sales and Lettings, the previous strategy resulted in us losing a lot of that expertise". U/L EPS 8.4 (19.3). Div passed. Outlook: Pipeline significantly below that of 2017, taking steps to build back the pipeline "but this will take time". Guides H1 EBITDA down £10m, unlikely that the shortfall in the first half will be recovered.
Tern (TERN) There is life after death spiral! TERN terminates Convertible Unsecured Loan Note facility, raises £650k at 2.55p, a 15% disc. The SP was 5p when it announced the death spiral in Nov.

Action Hotels (AHCG) Guides FY Revenue and adjusted EBITDA broadly in line with market expectations but pretax loss materially higher than expected at approx. -$12.2m "mainly due to not being able to capitalise some of the interest costs in the year ended 31 December 2017 as there were delays in two hotel openings, early repayment fees and a higher than forecast depreciation charge as valuations have increased." Will significantly reduce divs going fwd. Outlook: recent 2 months encouraging. LFL rev up 6%.

CWD: Price=88.9. Cap=212m. F/C for current FY*: EPS= 13.9, Prospective PE= 6.4, Revenue=NA.

The new Digital Gulags.

Renold (RNO) warns FY adj operating profit expected to be below previous expectations and slightly down YoY. Blames weak $, slow pace of passing on higher raw material costs in chain division.

"A DCF valuation over a period of five years, assuming mining profitability, mining difficulty, Bitcoin price, projected hash power and miners typology, estimated cost of energy and an 8% discount rate, generates a current valuation of €389k." So they are forecasting the world's most volatile curency five year out AND the total number of Bitcoins existing (to get hash power). Truly modern day Nostradamuses.

Escape Hunt (ESC) opens first UK site. Also will "further optimise its offering by developing higher quality and scaleable games alongside the rebranding...the consequential delays to the opening programme resulting from this strategic work and determined that the shift in the site opening plan to be well worthwhile."
City Natural Resources High Yield Trust (CYN) H1. NAV total return 16% in period, outperforming its benchmark index by 2.4%. "This outperformance was achieved despite holding some treasury stocks and cash to offset the Company's gearing, through its 3.5% Convertible Unsecured Loan Stock 2018, and to maintain net gearing below 25%". If you're 25% geared you'd expect to outperform! Does the 15% outperformance even reflect the gearing?

Telit Communications (TCM) Mixed bag, mostly good. It has agreed a series of new and amended financial covenants. Will adopt "a conservative approach in the preparation of its results, and in particular with respect to the capitalisation of R&D expenditure...and a prudent level of provisions." Guides FY rev $374-376m and adjusted EBITDA in the region of $20-23m. Jan/Feb have been considerably stronger YoY and ahead of the Board's early expectations.
Minoan Group (MIN) An exclusivity agreement has been signed with the preferred buyer of the Travel & Leisure division. The Greek property market is finally showing signs of recovery . Also undertaking a small debt fundraising and issuing 1.3m shares at 6p (14% premium) which will enable it to meet its liabilities until the sale completes.
Servision (SEV) update re. suspension. Its principal trading co SerVision Limited may be saved. Likely that the operating subsidiaries (SerVision Limited and SerVision UK Limited) will be divested from the Company which would, as a result, becomea cash sheel and need refinancing. SO at best a big dilution.
Tasty (TAST) FY in line. "Market conditions have been increasingly challenging through 2017 and the Board's expectation is that there will be no improvement in this regard in 2018. "
French Connection (FCCN) FY rev up 0.5%, pretax -£2.3m (-£5.3m). Net cash £9.5m or 9.9p/sh (£13.5m). "Our goal has been to return the Group to profitability and I believe we are very close to achieving that aim."

Telit Communications operates in the field of the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine to machine (M2M) communications. It offers the industry's broadest portfolio of integrated products, platforms, and services.
MIN: Price=5.05. Cap=7m. F/C for current FY*: EPS= -0.5, Prospective PE= -10.1, Revenue=NA.
Minoan Group is a holding and management company. Through its subsidiaries, the company engages in the design, creation, development, and management of hotels and resorts, and in the operation of independent travel businesses.
