plus_ca_change: If COH remains independent then there is every chance that as the company grows that the share price rises. I don't see how they have "conned" anyone; their annual report & accounts aren't exactly a work of fiction and it is a free world as to where we put our money, so I think it is a little immature to say that anyone had wool pulled over their eyes. COH rose to around 50p on the basis of a takeover; why should that affect the market, but it does. If a company reports a loss its shares dive, but that's not market forces that men and women at computer screens panicking for a perceived short-term loss. Capitalism works best when people look to the longer-term, rather than looking to make a quick dollar. That's why banks are so afraid of their own shadow -- pure "greed is good" culture and we thought the 80s were over. I know of a successful Ford dealership in the north that was a plc and the family bought back the shares; the family members are multi-millionaires and they're doing quite well without the interference of shareholders. COH is worth more than 24p and I say they're better of with WBT; they're brand leader in a growth market and they have everything to play for. Forget the idea of worthless currencies; they're 30-40 years behind us so the east should be seen as the next gold-rush economy and that it why WBT wants a piece of the action -- they're not stupid -- and COH gives them 90 stores in established territories. COH has done the hard work in breaking the ground, now WTB simply want to pick the low-lying fruit, if you forgive my mixed metaphors.

mryesyes: Just think for a minute. If it is announced "WTB only received 40% acceptance of their offer for COH, sources say WTB are considering their position" IMHO result will be rise in COH price. 40% of the stock is stuck at the registrars and another chunk is with the MM's. Say the price rose to 31p. Then WTB could not assume the consent of those who had responded to their offer, since that was at a 20% premium to the then share price of 19p, but now unless they offer 37p they are no longer offering the same premium. Interesting............

mryesyes: I do find on these boards, especially in previous years from 1999, that a dissenting voice is shouted down. However even on the smallest of smallcaps the effect of ramping posts on one board on the share price is probably zero For example I recall when the most respected director of KYS stood down to allow him to take bull positions on the stock, and ended up with these boards as his only mouthpiece and he was followed by a few dozen posters who hung on his every word, the price simply failed to respond, even under that situation.

serratia: Coffee911 - I should have given it more thought.When the interims came out I could have bought them for 19p,my own spreadsheet suggested 27p.Takeover talks were around and logical.A preditor was likely to come in on the share price weakness and there was a 25% uplift for the taking. I still have to fight logic vs emotion and as usual emotion (poor results) won.

serratia: Coffee911, COH reports are detailed.You can work out the gross margin per store the time to come up to speed in fact most of the figures you need to get a reasonable handle on the following years margins.You can get a pretty good figure for stores opening during the following year.I constructed a pretty detailed spreadsheet and valued COH at 15* the following years EBITDA.This served me well and when they got what I thought was a bit toppy I sold at 30,40 and 50p. I have been tempted to re-enter but the half year report was a bit off the pace so I haven't followed too closely. Local EBITDA for last year was £3252,if this had risen by 10% say they would be worth around £53m on 15* the next years EBITDA.However the half year EBITDA was £1205 so unless things change they're looking at around £2500k for the present year,which gives me a valuation of £37.5m,about 30% less than I hoped.If they had done as well as I was expecting I would have seen a share price of about 36p based on 15* the present years EBITDA.

troc1958: Share price has held up reasonably well today after what I would consider below expectation half yearly results. Nothing new on the potential buyer mentioned in June this year - probably what's keeping the share price stable today.

waxman3: In of the volitility of the COH share price of late, which was a situation COH stated it did not wish to see, then at this stage it would be appropriate for the compaNY TO ISSUSE A FORMAL ADVISORY NOTICE IN CLEAR PLAIN ENGLISH TO ADVISE OF THE ACTUAL STATE OF PLAY. On many BBs its like a parliamenntart debate spending time trying to figure out exactly what Worthington meant in the Bloomberg release. Unclarity rules--some like that--I DONT.

retiree: As the share price smoothly moves ahead of 40p a few recent quotes from our erstwhile friend waxman3 who predicted 20p: Buying right means one will sleep tight. Buying wrong a deep sad ding dong! So listen to the Waxman and you wont go wrong Now back to COH and looks like Mr Currie is averaging down, catching the old falling knife and all that. Back to 25p in a few weeks. Still no substance in this company. CHECK OUT INFLATION IN POLAND, THERE ARE NOW SOUP KITCHENS THERE AS FOOD PRICES HAVE GONE THROUGH THE ROOF BUT GOOD LUCK AS SAID. Meanwhile dont forget the trend is down apart from the current woes Call me what ever you will makes no odds as you can never alter the fact 'twas little ol me who called this one right on the button and its still going down from here. One thing you are right about it will be many, many, many, years before any investment sees manageable returns if at all., Look again if I was shorting I would be quids in--sucker! Anyone hoovering up these now would be very brave. If a troll is a person who continues to call COH right then I am happy to be a troll. lolololol under 30p this week for sure. dont see massive buying only selling call me whatever you like I still call the share price right. methinks shop trade is refelcted in the share price trades which are down again today--the 20s are calling.

10jimb: OH I DO AND VERY MUCH SO, AS I KNOW OF NO OTHER SHARE THAT HAS BEEN RAMPED TIPPED, RECOMMENDED IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME AND STILL FALLS. AND EVEN THE SHAREHOLDES CANT ANSWER SIMPLE QUESTION OF FINANCING! POSTING ABOUT POISONING EAGLES IS NOT MEANT TO DISTRUPT ANYTHING ONLY PERHAPS SOME PEOPLE'S CONSCIENCE AND SENCE OF DUTY TO PRESERVE ALL THINGS NATURAL. BUT AN IDIOT LIKE YOU WOULD KNOW NOTHING ABOUT SUCH VALUES. YOU being MORE INTEREST IN BOXES CALLED BMWs The trend for the COH share price is obviously down and you are right there is nothing I can do about that, excet what I did ---get out at a nice double plus, as when this one falls it wll go with a bang.

It's not like a lot of volume has been sold. I can only assume it's the new shares diluting things, but the new issue was over a month ago. Any thoughts? Whitie2 - 20 Jul'02 - 21:36 - 35 of 83 AS I SAID THIS DOES NOT SMELL RIGHT TO ME AND THE MARKET DOES NOT SEEM TO LIKE IT EITHER.

Such is the initial success with the UK-owned coffee and sandwich bar concept, that the company has signed a further four new leases in key retail locations. The company is in discussions for more sites and expects to make a further announcement before the end of March 2002. Sales in the two months of trading since its demerger from Bakery Services plc in November have been broadly in line with the Directors' expectations. Encouragingly, monthly year-on-year sales growth for those stores, where like-for-like sales are available, was 30% for December 2001 and 23% for January 2002. This, believes Chairman Richard Worthington, demonstrates the increasing brand awareness and attraction of the coffeeheaven concept to consumers in the Polish market. Of the new leases, two are in Warsaw: the first, a 32 sq. metre site at the Promenada Shopping Centre, considered one of the most highly regarded shopping centres in Warsaw, is expected to open in April 2002; the second, a 68 sq. metre site at "Wola Park", a new 70,000 sq. metre shopping and leisure centre in west Warsaw currently under construction, is due to open in October 2002. coffeeheaven is currently in discussions to secure a number of other key sites in Warsaw and surrounding areas. coffeeheaven expands in Poland The Company's objective is to establish a national chain of 50 stores throughout Poland by the end of 2006. In line with this objective, two further sites have now been secured, the first in Gdansk at the Carrefour Morena shopping centre, which builds on the Company's existing presence in the northern Polish conurbation of Gdynia/Sopot/Gdansk. This is expected to open in April 2002. The second is in Lodz Poland's second largest city. This latter site is situated in a key location in the new 184,000 sq. metre Nowy Swiat shopping and leisure complex, which is currently under development. Nowy Swiat is likely to be the largest shopping and leisure complex in Poland. This unit is expected to open in October 2003. "The rapid growth of retail development in Poland gives coffeeheaven the opportunity to secure key retail locations ahead of the requirement to open them, thus creating a 'stock' of sites for future development," says Richard Worthington. "This should enable us to grow the business under a managed development programme, but with a reduced risk of losing key locations to potential competitors." Once the above new sites have opened, this will bring the total number of coffeeheaven outlets to 10, believed to be significantly more than any competitor currently in the Polish market. - Ends - Trading and New Sites Update Trading Following the trading update of 14th February 2002, the Company is pleased to announce that current sales revenues remain within Directors' expectations. Monthly year-on-year sales growth for stores where like-for-like sales are available (now four stores), has continued to increase reaching 33% in the months of February and March 2002. The results, together with the sales contribution from the two newer stores, means that the Company's sole trading subsidiary, CHI Polska S.A. ('CHIP'), is already trading on a monthly basis at cash breakeven. The Directors are also pleased that CHIP's new store opening programme is proceeding broadly as planned, which they believe is important in securing CHIP's market leadership positioning. New Sites In addition to the new sites announced on 14th February 2002, the Company is pleased to announce that terms have been agreed (subject to contract) on three additional sites. Two of these sites are in Warsaw and one in the city of Lodz (Poland's second largest city) where CHIP has already contracted a first site. All three sites are expected to open during 2002. These additional sites, together with those already operating or contracted, will bring the total number of units to 13 of which 9 will be in Warsaw or the Warsaw area. All but one of these units are expected to be open before the end of December 2002. :End coffeeheaven international plc ("coffeeheaven international" or "the Company") New Store Opened and Trading Update coffeeheaven international is pleased to announce the opening of its sixth coffeeheaven store on Nowy Swiat, which is considered the most prestigious shopping street in Warsaw. coffeeheaven international is also pleased to announce that since its demerger from Bakery Services plc in November, sales in the two months of trading since have been broadly in line with the Directors' expectations. Encouragingly monthly year-on-year sales growth for those stores, where like-for-like sales are available, was 30% for December 2001 and 23% for January 2002. This, the Directors believe, demonstrates the increasing brand awareness and attraction of the coffeeheaven concept to consumers in the Polish market. In addition to the opening of a sixth store, the Company has signed a further four new leases in key retail locations. Warsaw: The Company has signed a lease for a 32 sq. metre site (plus additional Mall seating) at the Promenada Shopping Centre, which is considered one of the most prestigious shopping centres in Warsaw. This unit is expected to open in April 2002. The Company has also signed a lease for a 68 sq. metre site (with additional Mall seating) at "Wola Park" a new 70,000 sq. metre shopping and leisure centre in west Warsaw currently under construction. The unit is expected to open in October 2002. The Company is currently in discussions to secure a number of other key sites in Warsaw and surrounding area. Developing the Company's objective of establishing a national chain throughout Poland the following sites have also been secured: Gdansk: Building on the Company's presence in the northern Polish conurbation of Gdynia/Sopot/Gdansk, the Company has signed a lease for a 65 sq. metre site at the new 40,000 sq. metre shopping centre of 'Carrefour ­ Morena'. The unit is expected to open in April 2002. Lodz (Poland's second largest city): The Company has signed a further lease for a 52 sq. metre site in the new 184,000 sq. metre 'Nowy Swiat' shopping and leisure complex, which is currently under development. Nowy Swiat is likely to be the largest shopping and leisure complex in Poland. This unit is expected to open in October 2003. The Company is currently in discussions to secure at least one further site in Lodz. The rapid growth of retail development in Poland gives the Company the opportunity to secure key retail locations ahead of the requirement to open them and therefore creating a 'stock' of sites for future development. This should enable the Company to grow the business under a managed development programme but with a reduced risk of losing key locations to potential competitors. Once the above new sites have opened, this will bring the total number of coffeeheaven outlets to 10. So far as the Board is aware, this is significantly more than any competitor currently has in the Polish market. The Company expects to make a further announcement concerning new sites before 31 March 2002. :End coffeeheaven international plc ("coffeeheaven international" or "the Company") Trading and New Site Update coffeeheaven international, the AIM-listed speciality coffee/sandwich bar business based in Poland, is pleased to announce the opening of its seventh 'coffeeheaven' store. The new store is located in a 32 sq. metre site with additional Mall seating at the Promenada shopping centre, considered one of the most prestigious shopping centres in Warsaw. The Directors are delighted to report that trading on the first day of opening significantly exceeded their expectations and that they consider this to be the most successful opening of any 'coffeeheaven' store to date. In addition, the Company is pleased to confirm that it has signed a lease for a second site based in Lodz, Poland's second largest city. This new 'coffeeheaven' store is scheduled to commence trading in October 2002. This new site is in addition to the 52 sq. metre site in the new 184,000 sq. metre 'Nowy Swiat' shopping and leisure complex in Lodz, which was announced in February 2002. This unit is still expected to open in October 2003. The Company is also delighted to announce that contracts are currently being exchanged for a second site at Galeria Mokotow, Warsaw considered the most successful shopping centre in Poland. This additional 'coffeeheaven' site comprising some 78 sq. metres is expected to open in October 2002 will be located in the new retail extension to the shopping centre, which is currently under construction. The extension is scheduled for completion in early Autumn 2002 and will increase the centre's total retail selling space by some 20%. The existing coffeeheaven unit at Galeria Mokotow, which opened in September 2000, has been the Company's most successful store to date producing the highest sales revenues and achieving an investment payback from store operating cash flows in less than 12 months. Like-for-like sales increases at this store are currently running at around +30%. So far as the Directors are aware this is the first time that a tenant in coffeeheaven's retail sector as been offered a second site in the same shopping centre in Poland. The Directors believe this further demonstrates the confidence in the 'coffeeheaven' concept by retail developers in Poland and reinforces coffeeheaven's market leadership positioning in the market. Once the contract on the above has been concluded, the total number of coffeeheaven units in Poland either currently trading, under construction, or subject to contract will be 13 of which 9 are in the Warsaw area. Current total sales revenues from all store remains within Directors' expectations. For further information, please see the Company's website, www.coffeeheaven.eu.com or contact: Serving up a first for Poland Speciality coffee and sandwich shop business, coffeeheaven international, has whipped up a first for businesses by being the first Polish company to join AIM –it was admitted to trading in December 2001.

End "Well I cant find anything wrong can you" ? With regards the recent share issue I contacted Richard Worthington and this was his reply: Dear Sir, Thank you for your email. On the price discount - as you know the stock market is very weak now and this was the best price our Brokers could get. Placing prices are almost always at a discount but of course the Company saves the very costly and not entirely risk free allternative of a general offer. Overall we view the ability to do a Placing for a small company such as ours as a considerable success in such weak markets and it should be reassuring to the markets that we have such Broker support. We do not feel the issue will dilute the price for a number of reasons: 1. The purpose of the Placing is to ramp up the store opening program- that is to open more stores quicker. We feel that this is a positive statement underlining the success of the concept and a move that offers the possibility to bring the Company into profit faster. 2. The Directors have made a considerable additional financial commitment to the Company. We feel that shareholders should find that reassuring. 3. There has been a positive flow of trading updates and general information on the Company since the demerger. Sincerely, Richard Worthington Chief Executive - coffeeheaven international plc "So tell us all will you were is this bad or hidden news" !! Whitie2 - 24 Jul'02 - 09:08 - 42 of 83 its in the continued dillution of value through an ever increasing amount of cash calls--to much jiggerypockery with Diggle and BKE--the City likes clarity and Worthington is not given them that--hence the share price graylyn - 24 Jul'02 - 18:54 - 43 of 83 A company issues shares for cash it then invests that money in its core business or, it may buy a similar business or, indeed start a new venture related to its own particular niche. In the case of BKE it raised funds to divert from its core business as this was not expected to produce adequate returns in the future. So it issued shares to raise capital for which it puchased "Don Millers" which since it has been in the control of BKE has produced increased revenues and profit, I should like to add that the total cost for Don Millers was £290,000 for the first full year it produced rev of £456,979 with a profit of £128,053 that is almost 50% return in 12 months!!!!!! Then we turn to COH started from scratch it now trades in a strong position in a growing market as market leader and is already showing excellent figures with a Gross margin of 48.5% so you see that the money raised has been used for good purpose. So I am afraid that I can not see what your problem is? The fact that the company took action when it was clear that the core business was becoming unprofitable is a credit to good management, and over time we will be rewarded! Whitie2 - 26 Jul'02 - 09:41 - 44 of 83 aaaaaaaaaaaaggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh over time we will be rewarded oh my goodness me---well answer this---how much are the directors earning right now!!!
