Alfred, you may be right. On the other hand the recent little acquisition in Germany and contract at Sellafield (hope I got that right) suggests management are beginning to get this moving. Remember also that a small outfit with good ip can increase ten times far more easily than the lumbering engineering elephants.

The engineering side is too small to effectively compete. May have some modest short term success but not one for the long term.

Result out today at http://www.investegate.co.uk/carr-s-group-plc--carr-/rns/final-results/201611140700100337P/ Look interesting, and the sale of the food side does seem to have been a good move. I've always been interested in the robotics engineering side, and think that nuclear decommissioning will become a growth industry in the near future.

vulgaris Yes agree - I reckon they are now more like Wynnstay (WYN) who have lots of country stores and animal feeds supplies and have a market value of £102k which will be about the same as Carr after the sale ? they on P/E of 15+ also . All good for the sector profile !

Even with today's rally they're on a multiple of 11.6 vs 15.5 for NWF, to which they're surely now more similar.

Would rather they keep the proceeds to invest in the business. We will get .005 % interest on our money if saved outside the stock market which in turn is temporarily high due to low interest rates and low pound . A good strategy though as flour milling is overcapacity , subject to strong health and safety requirements and investment and very competitive . well done Carr - this is presumably one reason why they changed the co name last year in anticipation of this event

Agriculture, food and engineering firm Carr's Group has sold its food division, Carr's Flour Mills, to flour milling business Whitworths for £36m. Net proceeds will amount to £24.9m and the company said it will return £16m to shareholders in the form of a special dividend of 17.54p per share. The remaining £8.9m will provide balance sheet strength and the opportunity to expand the group's continuing businesses by acquisition and organic growth. Chief executive Tim Davies said: "The sale of Carr's Flour Mills Ltd represents an exciting stage in Carr's strategic development. At a time of increasing competition and volatility in the flour market, consolidation is essential and inevitable. "We will continue to focus on our strategy of delivering growth in our UK agriculture business, the development of our international feed supplement businesses and building our specialist engineering division in niche markets across the globe

Sensible strategy to dispose of a low margin business. And the special dividend is welcome.

Been bumping along in the 140s then, in 2 days, spikes to 155 and falls back to 145, based on no news that I can see. Does anyone have insight?

Still a long way to on farming. No green shoots yet. Diversification keeps Carrs, Wynnstay and NWF going whilst we wait for better times. Brexit will be over after 23 June. regards Linhur

bw Wynnstay made similar comments about prices in their Accounts and at the AGM. Farmers who attended the meeting were singing the same song. For now it is a case of battening down the hatches until better times return. Looks like the value of 'mike' has fallen as well. red

Carlisle-based Carr's Group believes the agricultural sector faces two more years of pain, as the dairy crisis worsens and the price of beef tumbles. The food and engineering group's boss Tim Davies said there was no 'short-term fix' to the situation, adding that the outlook was worsening. His remarks came after a 6.0% drop in farm gate prices for mike in February in comparison to a year before and as incomes for cattle farmers hit five-year lows. Its business in the States on the other hand has held up better, boosted by "outstanding" sales of animal feed blocks as cattle herds were rebuilt in the wake of the severe drought seen from 2010 to 2012. AIM-listed Carr's agricultural unit also managed to improve its first-half operating profits to £7.4m from £6.7m. In parallel, the Chirton engineering arm endured a tough start to the year as oil prices plunged. All told, turnover at the group was 9.4% lower over the six months to the end of February, reaching £189.1m. Despite the hard times, the stock is trading on a conservative price-to-earnings multiple of just 11 times profits and the annual dividend is forecast to grow by 4.0% to 3.8p
