Smallcap Sweep. 04-Dec-18
Jam seen at SRT, but this jar was snatched away once...

SRT Marine Systems (SRT) wins £31m 4 year contract from Philippines. This is the same project which the company previously announced had been cancelled and delayed due to a change of budget source from a foreign loan to Philippine government cash funds.
Surface Transforms (SCE) H1 trading. Rev down 3% at £509k. Commentary topped with a garnish of good news under which is a sickly fish. Customer 'OEM6' may delay production, may hit FY rev by £500k.
Ixico (IXI) FY up 32%. EPS -2.0p (-5.7p). The Financial Review is headed Ahead of expectations but there's nothing in the body about this. Rev matches F/C, EPS is worse than -1.5p F/C. Guides current FY in line.
Marlowe (MRL) H1 rev up 57%, EPS 8.8p up 41%. Guides FY ahead of current market expectations.
Quartix (QTX) guides FY adjusted EBITDA head of market expectations by 10-15% but "This is largely as a result of the Group's adoption of IFRS15 (Revenue from Contracts with Customers), which has increased profit and revenue in 2018 as noted in the trading statement on 2 July 2018." So broker(s) asleep at the wheel? Why did QTX not nudge them? Revenue and free cashflow guided slightly ahead of market expectations which were rev: £24.6m; adjusted EBITDA £7.5m; free cash flow: £5.4m.
Pelatro (PTRO) wins contract to provide Campaign Management Solution to NCell of Nepal. No £££.
