journeo - I hope they didn't pay someone to come up with such a stupid name. As for the share consolidation, never had much luck with companies who have done it in the past. I just hope the company has some spectacular contract lined up. The past few years doesn't give a lot of hope though. Chin up fellow 'journeo's' . I don't believe it either!
Thoughts of a Loggybog.
O dear, debs they did have somthing up their sleeves didn't they. Also a consol' on 93 mill shares ?
The results indicate steady progress only, I hope the R and D dept has something big in the pipeline!! One for the back burner I think. . Perhaps a white knight will come charging along and take us over! Take care.
Interesting that volume is rising but I didn't think the trading update was too positive at the end of December. 10% increase in revenue which will see it grow to over £12mill is a big tick in the box BUT they need to turn a profit.
Hoping to see this heading in the right direction come the final results. If any sort of profit margin can be established going forward then we will see the SP rise IMO.
Large volume for the second day - why? Good news for the patient LTH's??
Looks like I spoke too soon GLA
Positive RNS and a much more reasonable spread, I am hopeful we are over the worst and will improve in all areas from here. GLA
Lots of positives, including new initiatives. Not life changing yet though! Only another 6 months to wait!
DEBS1 - I suspect the recent buying activity is in advance of the publication of the half-year results to 30 June - they were released on 31 August last year so expected any day now. Let's hope the buyers are right and they are good as news has been thin on the ground recently. Downside to the recent buying activity is that as there are few free float shares available to market makers so they widen the spread to deter more buyers - now 1p. However it has not as people prepared to pay 4p for a share with a mid-price of 3.5p. Don't think I would be prepared to buy with such a spread - I am hoping the buyers know something that convinces them it is worthwhile doing so. ATB Country Yokel
Why the buying activity? More buys than posts on the BB! No red spots to indicate a reason. Insider knowledge about another deal? I have always felt that this company will one day either come good as a stand alone co. or be taken over. I think from the trickle of contracts it will not go bust and so that is not a worry. (i hope that is not the debs kiss of death). Perhaps the CEO would like to respond!
£1M Contract... not bad for £3m mcap company...
30% spread seriously
MMs short given the spread. Couple of more buys and this'll fly.
Abellio owned by Nederlandse Spoorwegen (Dutch rail) who merged with Deutsche Bahn (solely owned by the Federal Republic of Germany). This is big. Potential across Europe is now massive.
That is a great RNS whichever way you cut it.

Systems and Services contract Abellio
21st Century Technology plc (AIM: C21), the specialist provider of tailored solutions to the transport community, solving complex operational requirements both on and off vehicle, is pleased to announce a 3-year bus systems and services contract with Abellio.
Abellio has been operating successfully in the UK for over 10 years and are one of the largest rail companies in the UK, operating three rail franchises currently in addition to a major bus company serving London.

The first order for 23 new vehicles has been received and, depending upon the actual number of buses manufactured over the period, the value of the contract is expected to be approximately £2.5 million.
Russ Singleton, 21st Century's Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are delighted that Abellio has chosen 21st Century to provide new systems, upgrades and ongoing support services for their bus fleet based in and around London. From our Croydon operations center, we are ideally placed to respond quickly as we have replacement equipment, spares and component stocks along with technical training and support facilities."
Mark Wallace, Group Procurement at Abellio, commented: "We have chosen 21st Century to be our technical services partner, based on their innovative approach to supporting and upgrading all our on-board systems. This will provide a real boost for our UK bus operations".
A digital copy of this announcement will be available on the Group's website: www.21stplc.com
Bit of uncertainty now with immediate share price, will it continue to rise or will it drop (as it usually does aft a massive spike). People are probably waiting till Tuesday to buy in/sell.
This does have the potential to double to 6/7 by the end of the year, but will it happen any sooner is the big question.
Contract news incoming...?
Very stagnant SP. Low volumes aswell.
In the Fleet Systems business the award in August of the five-year First Bus contract renewal has allowed more focus on a number of framework agreements, bids and tenders which are currently under negotiation and we are becoming increasingly confident of growth in 2017 and beyond.
The board is currently considering additional financing options to support the business with its working capital requirements and whilst there can be no certainty regarding the raising of further funding, the Board is confident of a successful outcome to this process and will make further announcements as appropriate.
