May 2012 Share price £6.25 Phil Harris leaves company. Where is the Share price now January 2017.? Under £2, and not far from float price. K Guardian 11th MAY 2012. Dan Milmo Carpetright founder steps down after 24 years Lord Harris is a self-made millionaire who made his fortune through selling carpets for more than half a century and founded the group in 1988 Lord Harris is ending his 24-year reign as chief executive of Carpetright, with the struggling flooring specialist announcing the former finance director of Sainsbury's as his replacement. The move comes a fortnight after the retailer issued its seventh profit warning in just over year, triggered by rising living costs and a moribund housing market. Lord Harris is a self-made millionaire who made his fortune through selling carpets for more than half a century and founded the group in 1988. However, the educational philanthropist and Conservative party donor will maintain an influential role at the business by retaining his position as chairman. His replacement is also no stranger to the company. Darren Shapland is a non-executive director at Carpetright and was the firm's finance director between 2002 and 2005. Shapland then left to take up the same role at Sainsbury's, later becoming group development director. Lord Harris said: "I am confident he will make a huge contribution to the future of the business." Carpetright also announced that the heads of its UK and European businesses will step down from the board in order to retain "an appropriate balance" between executive and non-executive directors. Sheila Noakes, Carpetright's senior independent director, paid tribute to Lord Harris. "He is a hard act to follow," she said. A Carpetright spokesman said Harris would initially work four days a week as chairman before gradually reducing his day-to-day role. Harris's son Martin is the firm's commercial director. In Carpetright's latest profit warning, the company said annual profits would be between £3m and £4m, a sharp decline from previous forecasts of between £12m and £17m. Shapland said: "I am delighted to be appointed as chief executive of the Carpetright business and I am looking forward to working with Lord Harris and the team in the future development of the business." Shares in Carpetright closed up 1.2% at 625.5p, valuing the business at £417m.

Spot on tr65 - I though so too and lost a few quid trying to short it!

Rather than wonder why the price is low now, the mystery of CPR to me is how incredibly high the price was a few years ago, defying reason.

A quick review of the numbers would indicate why the share price is so weak. The average Brokers forecast PBT is £16.1m, some £1m lower than achieved LY. However, the recently announced first half was £5m vs £9m last year...so the second half requires a big reversal of fortune...to achieve £11m v £8m last year. While the Interims in December suggested that the Board were "comfortable" with Brokers forecast...I think the City (and me!) seriously doubt that, and a profit warning at the end of Jan looks almost inevitable to me. A big miss on the Broker Forecast, followed by an outlook for 2017 which contains potential further margin erosion from currency headwinds, uncertain trading conditions, further competition from a developing Tappi, Minimum Wage increase. I am not sure I see it heading to 70p as suggested. It would still be profitable (albeit reduced), without much debt, and 70p would be significantly below Net Assets. However, for the reasons above, I am short on this.

I'm an ex holder here too, but occasionally visit to see how it's going.... for me this illustrates how wrong I and others can be on a specific share - I was heavily exposed as it seemed to be a decently ran outfit but now if someone asked me to explain how a business has lost nearly five sixths of its value in 18 months, I couldn't and this is why I question why I should be in investing at all when I know apparently so little..... I have no confidence in calling the bottom of this.... all I know is that if this business is still making money then it will come back one day and I would love to get in near the bottom

I did say it was modest :) ...but agree that it will take a fair bit more to reverse the downward trend

Brave move, but CPR doesn't really seem to have any buying interest for months - or years!

Chart looks dire and best practice is often not to average down. However, having resisted a top up for months, I saw the apparent modest buying interest today and thought I'd join in. I accept it could be foolish but I'm banking on the fall being overdone.

What a hoot! Bill Gates selling to the Wellcome Trust - presumably they will receive a large donation from the foundation in return!

Not a holder here anymore. Took the hit and moved on. Wish you luck and hope it turns for those still in, or if you are taking the time to take an initial stake, that it works out for you too! Main reason for posting now is to say that I believe IC just said CPR were a buy. Read into that what you will!
