Symphony Environmental Technologies TICKER: SYM     EXCHANGE: L

Symphony Environmental Technologies plc specializes in developing and marketing a wide range of plastic products and other environmental technologies, and operates worldwide.

In particular, the company is a world leader in the development and marketing of Controlled-life Plastic and sells both pro-degradent additives and finished plastic products through a growing network of international distributors and agents. The company also sells a comprehensive range of traditional, non-degradable, flexible plastic products.

The Group has chosen not to manufacture products itself, but to subcontract this work to carefully selected and audited subcontractors around the world. This flexibility provides security of supply, local availability, and significant cost benefits to the Group and its customers.

Degradable finished products and additives are sold worldwide either directly to customers or, increasingly, through a growing network of authorised Distributors and Agents.

The Company has two wholly-owned operating subsidiaries - Symphony Environmental Ltd which concentrates on environmental plastic solutions and Symphony Recycling Technologies Ltd whose operations are focused on recovering useful products and energy from waste plastic and rubber products.

Foreign buyers gorging on UK stocks

Being a shareholder in a company that receives a juicy takeover offer is a marvellous feeling. Something that many fortunate investors have experienced over the past 3 years. Thanks to a spate of M&A bids by deep pocketed overseas buyers – partly triggered by the June 2016 Brexit result, which sent the £ tumbling and adversely affected the FTSE.

Consequently today, given this trend is unlikely to end anytime soon, we’ve highlighted 30 possible acquisition ideas in the attached research paper. Spilt equally between large and smallcap stocks – covering a broad selection of industries.

What’s more we believe most of these businesses are underpinned by strong fundamentals and substantial upside in the event of predatory interest.

According to Factset Mergerstat/BVR, the average bid premium paid for such deals between 2004-14 was 30% – with the figure trending upwards since the global financial crisis.
