When advisers first start looking at business relief (BR) products, there is much to take in: the rules governing such products; the investment strategies being used; and what the investment risk is. It is easy to lose sight of the fact that, for non-AIM products, the investment is being made directly into a company or partnership, rather than a fund. It is, therefore, essential that governance is part of the diligence process.

Seeing Machines has announced results for its financial year ended June 2021 and, after the 3 August 2021 trading update, there were few surprises in the numbers with the company trading ahead of expectations in terms of margins and cash. This reflects the successful focus by the management on reducing costs and conserving cash. However, with the conclusion of the recent fund raise, we expect the company to change gear to investing in the business and managing for longer term shareholder value.

The H1 results were a bit of a double check. First, how high hopes (battery materials) persist in a rapidly changing environment, something already communicated to the markets. The second, and a rather annoying one, was how to deal with the issues as management was not really transparent. This explains the strong miss in EBIT compared to the consensus. We were also wrong-footed as our impairment figure was far too low.
