Diploma (DPLM) AGM Report 2016

I attended the Annual General Meeting of Diploma PLC (DPLM) on the 20th January in the City of London at 12.00 am. Diploma is a fully listed company with a market cap of about £760m and revenue of £333m last year. It produces and sells a range of specialist technical products. Historically it has obtained good growth from both acquisitions and organic growth. It seems to acquire typically small/medium private companies where the owners wish to sell, which are complementary to ...

Northern Venture Trust (NVT) AGM Report 2015

I attended the Annual General Meeting of Northern Venture Trust (NVT) today. This is of course a Venture Capital Trust (VCT) which was one of the first VCTs to launch back in 1995, when I bought a few shares. Yes I have been holding this company for 20 years, and have bought more over the years because it is one of the more successful VCTs. According to the AIC, the NAV Total Return over ten years is exactly 300 (i.e. £100 pound ...

Paragon Entertainment (PEL) AGM 2015

Attendees: Mark Taylor Executive Chairman (MT) Mark Pyrah CEO (MP) Peter Holdsworth Production Director (PH) Martin Barratt NED (MB) Jarrod Marsden Financial Controller (JM) X2 Private Investors, including myself and X2 PI’s via telephone connection. No recording of the AGM was made and this is a representation of my notes and understanding of comments made including interpretations by myself. I am not, nor have I ever been, qualified to give financial advice and nothing in this article should be taken as such. All comments should be taken as ...

DotDigital Group (DOTD) AGM Report 2015

I was the only ordinary shareholder who turned up for the Annual General Meeting of DotDigital (DOTD) today (15/12/2015). That's the same as last year. It was a convenient location and time so that's a bit surprising, but apparently they have few private shareholders. They have shown steady revenue and profits growth in the last few years and they even pay a small dividend. Perhaps lack of private investor interest is because the previous CEO Peter Simmonds never gave great presentations ...

Ten Alps (TAL) AGM 2015

Ten Alps (TAL), the TV production and publishing group founded by ageing rockstar Sir Bob Geldof, has long since disappeared from the investment screens of most investors despite the fact that it continues to churn out a stream of award winning TV documentaries ranging from heavy weight BBC subjects such as the 50th anniversary of Churchill’s funeral and Panoroma reports on the Ebola crisis, to high-brow cultural programmes on Shakespeare and David Hockney. TAL’s record over the last five years explains why ...

AB Dynamics (ABDP) AGM Report 2015

I attended the AB Dynamics (ABDP) Annual General Meeting on the 10th December, at their head office in Bradford on Avon. The company has been listed on AIM for some but the share price has raced ahead in the last year after being tipped by Simon Thompson in the Investors Chronicle, and by others. Here is how the company describes itself: "AB Dynamics is a leading designer, manufacturer and provider of advanced testing and measurement products for vehicle suspension, brakes and steering ...

International Biotechnology Trust (IBT) AGM Report 2015

I attended the International Biotechnology Trust (IBT) Annual General Meeting today (9/12/2015). There were more than 30 shareholders present at the offices of BNP Paribas in the City for a start of 12.30 (but no lunch provided before or after so the timing seems a bit odd). That was more people than last year I gather and there were a number of familiar faces present. This is a specialist investment trust focussed on the worldwide biotechnology sector. Performance has been brilliant in ...

Kalibrate (KLBT) AGM Report 2015

Kalibrate Technologies (KLBT) held its AGM in the City of London on the 4th December - it commenced at 10.00 am which may be one reason why there were only three ordinary shareholders there so far as I could see. But that was two more than last year from what one said to me. Kalibrate listed on AIM in November 2013. It provides a business decision platform for fuel and convenience store retailers - pricing and planning solutions. Enabling them to optimise ...

Bioventix Plc (BVXP) AGM Report 2015

Yesterday I attended the Annual General Meeting of Bioventix Plc at the Mercure Bush hotel, Farnham, Surrey. Bioventix is a small (market Cap is £64.5 million) company that specialises in the development and commercial supply of high-affinity monoclonal antibodies with a focus on their application in clinical diagnostics. Results for the year ended 30th June 2015 were as follows: Revenues up 23% to £4.3 million, profit up 39% to £3.1 million and cash balances up £780k to £4.13m. Much of this revenue ...

Pan African Resources (PAF) AGM Report 2015

Yesterday I attended the Annual General Meeting of Pan African Resources Plc at Numis Securities London office in the Stock Exchange Building. Pan African Resources is a mid-tier South African based precious metals business producing approximately 215,000oz of gold per annum with a focus on maintaining and increasing profitable production in the coming years. We started at 2pm with the Chairman Keith Spencer and Non-Exec Hester Hickey in attendance, along with 6 shareholders plus the usual other hangers on. We started by taking ...
