React Group is a tiny AIM-listed company that has a chequered history and recently decided to concentrate on specialist cleaning. It is also a sub penny stock. So far, so bad.
The good news is that star fund manager David Newton has a chunky 15.74% holding and the company’s management has been strengthened with the addition of a Non-Executive Director Michael Joyce, former CFO at InterQuest.
Joyce and his wife have recently bought stock in the company (management of SEE, please note) which has helped spark this week’s increase in the share price.
Mark Braund has also been brought in as an operational and strategic advisor. He is a former CEO of InterQuest and also ex-CEO of Redstone Connect.
I briefly held this stock about 3 years ago when Adam Reynolds (the cash shell king) was a holder. He has since moved on and I feel that with a clearer strategy the company is now gearing up for a period of accelerated growth.
It made a loss for the year ended 30 September of £1.93m but the net cash outflow from operations was far less at £625k, with turnover up 25% at £3.3m. If the business continues on its current growth trajectory it could easily multi-bag from here.
At this stage it has be regarded as a fairly speculative investment and is certainly not one to sink your pension pot into. Yet, it is certainly worthy of further investigation.
At the time of writing its share price was 0.27p.
