Comments: Staffline have been on my radar for a while now, each time I look at it I think is this the end of the bad news, Have a look at the case study?

Yet each time there is a sort of mini recovery in the share price as some new action, change of focus or fund raising is announced followed by more big bad news.

This time the bad news is poor trading figures, an overstatement of 2018 profits by around £4m and the departure of the CFO.

Underlying profits are expected to be down from £39m in 2018 to around £10m in 2019.

The Board expects year end net debt to be approximately £50 to £55 million, in line with current market expectations. Staffline maintains a constructive relationship with its lenders and consequently the Board does not anticipate any covenant issues over the year end. Furthermore, the Company is considering certain strategic options which may significantly reduce net debt during H1 2020.

So there is some concern that the company may simply run out of money, in August 2019 the auditors PriceWaterhouseCooper resigned, it is hard to know if there is anything that a shareholder should infer from this though.
