Staffline undaunted by Brexit

Recruitment is a sector that’s been underperforming all year and it got a further kicking after the Brexit vote. This means there’s plenty of upside if the economic background turns out to be OK or if companies’ business models prove to be resilient. Staffline shares could be well placed to benefit.

Synectics on the road to recovery

Synectics (AIM: SNX), the surveillance systems specialist, is on the road to recovery. The shares were hit badly by the downturn in the oil and gas industry which historically has been a key customer. Happily the slack is now being taken up elsewhere, with the order book up 34 per cent from the start of the year.

Profit from playing by the rules

One ‘industry’ that has boomed over recent decades is compliance. Everything has become a lot stricter as far as rules and regulations are concerned. It’s not enough to abide by the processes of our workplaces, we also need to demonstrate that proper procedures are in place and are being complied with. That’s good news for Ideagen (AIM: IDEA) whose software helps over 2,000 companies in regulated industries manage their governance, risk and compliance.

Collagen targets a step up in scale

Collagen Solutions (AIM: COS) results gave new CEO Jamal Rushdy an opportunity to set out his strategy for the company. Collagen has an unusually broad geographic footprint for a company of its £13 million size. The plan is to use this platform to exploit Collagen’s expertise in tissue engineering, both through contract manufacturing and developing its own medical devices.

Concepta Diagnostics reverses into Frontier shell

Cash shell Frontier Resources (AIM: FRI) has announced the reverse takeover of Concepta Diagnostics. Concepta is focused on women’s fertility and plans to have its first product in the market shortly.

Beam me up

Satellite Solutions Worldwide (AIM: SAT) has just pulled off a significant acquisition which increases its user base by 40 per cent. Avonline is a major UK competitor in satellite broadband and is being acquired for £10 million, funded by a further financing agreement with the Business Growth Fund.
