  • 159 companies are in danger

    Based on this months data, the Plimsoll Analysis has rated 159 companies as Danger. With 9 out of 10 previously failed Automation & Control Systems 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 754 Automation & Control Systems 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 (389 Companies)
    •  Good (66 Companies)
    •  Mediocre (63 Companies)
    •  Caution (77 Companies)
    •  Danger (159 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.

  • 17 companies are ripe for takeover

    Right now, directors of other Automation & Control Systems companies are using a Plimsoll Analysis to find the best takeover targets in your market. In fact, the analysis has named 17 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.

  • 178 companies are making a loss

    As a further sign of the intense competition within the UK industry, 77 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 351 7.7
    Least profitable 403 0
    Industry Average 754 4

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

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

    128 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 754 Automation & Control Systems 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.
