The Plimsoll Analysis will give you a completely new insight into the performance, financial health and value of the UK's 120 leading Abrasive Products companies. You will receive an up to date opinion on each company showing those in difficulty, the fastest growing, the best takeover targets and much more. The latest analysis will show you:

  • 24 companies are in danger

    Based on this months data, the Plimsoll Analysis has rated 24 companies as Danger. With 9 out of 10 previously failed Abrasive Products companies given the same Danger rating 2 years prior to their demise, the analysis will give you early warning of who is next.

    Each of the 120 Abrasive Products companies included in the Plimsoll Analysis has been rated Strong, Good, Mediocre, Caution or Danger. These ratings are based on the Plimsoll Model - our unique graphical model that highlights the current strength of each company and measures change in performance over the previous 4 years.

    The following is a breakdown of the performance ratings revealed in the analysis this month:

    •  Strong (55 Companies)
    •  Good (13 Companies)
    •  Mediocre (17 Companies)
    •  Caution (11 Companies)
    •  Danger (24 Companies)

    These ratings change each month as the analysis incorporates more up to date company accounts. You will be among the first to see who is improving and which companies are in decline.

  • 21 companies are ripe for takeover

    Right now, directors of other Abrasive Products companies are using a Plimsoll Analysis to find the best takeover targets in your market. In fact, the analysis has named 21 highly attractive targets that you need to look at first.

    Each company in the Plimsoll Analysis is rated on their attractiveness for takeover. A 9 point checklist is provided on each company to determine their attractivenes and this is presented in a simple "fuel gauge" style measure. The higher the gauge the more attractive the company.

    The following is a breakdown of this months latest acquisition findings from the analysis:

    • 23 - companies that are rated as "highly attractive" in the analysis
    • 85 - companies are "Worth considering"

  • 32 companies are making a loss

    As a further sign of the intense competition within the UK industry, 17 companies continue to sell at a loss for the 2nd year running. These serial loss makers are adding to the congestion in the market, often undercutting the rest of the market and driving down profit margins across the board.

    The next 12 months represents something of a crossroads for these companies as they face 2 distinct choices; either they operate more responsibly or they run out of cash.

    No of Companies Average Profit Margin
    Most profitable 48 5
    Least profitable 72 0
    Industry Average 120 1.4

    Each company's profitability is assessed in detail and a 5 year trend analysis allows for year on year comparisons.

    • 24 companies have been rated as danger
    • 21 companies have been identified as prime acquisition prospects
    • 17 companies are selling at a loss for the 2nd year in a row
  • 14 companies lose over a quarter of their value

    14 companies have seen their overall value fall by more than a quarter in their latest year. While most other companies have added to their overall worth, these companies need to arrest a worrying decline.

    Where else would you get an instant valuation on 120 Abrasive Products companies, based on the latest accounts for each company that will instantly show you who is up and who is falling? The analysis also provides a valuation for each of the previous 4 years and also a "future year" showing what it could be worth in the future.

    The valuations in the analysis are updated as soon as we receive new accounts and the following is a breakdown of this months findings:

    14 - companies that have lost over a quarter of their value

    53 - companies that have increased in value in the latest year
