|Price briefly reached 280. Highest broker forecast is currently 297.
Now looks likely to be achieved after the 6 month results and 2018 outlook.
75p on a 225p investment would be sweet.|
|Great Breakout, good for 300 after those sound results.|
|Just purchased my first tranche in this share so good luck to all of us.|
|Hello! What are market expectations for turnover and earnings year to 30 September 2016?|
|It is a bit lonely in here. I applied for £1000.00 and was scaled down so I only got 377 shares.|
|Thank you for setting up this board.
Hopefully one day it will get used.|
|Pricing range was 225-275 and final offer was 225p. If the market recovers in general a 275 exit point will look achievable quite quickly. 50 on 275 or 22% would be nice. I got scaled back to 85% in the offer. Watch out for lock ins to end after 6 & 12 months.|

Crown Sports plc
The management of Crown Sports plc provide a trading update as it approaches the
end of its current trading year.
We announced at our interim results in September that as a result of a slowdown
in membership sales we were significantly increasing our marketing investment.
As a result of the action taken we have seen several months of strong new joiner
growth which, combined with a stabilising attrition rate, we anticipate will
result in our overall membership levels being ahead at the end of the year.
We also communicated that we were seeing significant increases in electricity,
gas and business rates, that have continued to impact upon the business in the
second half of the year.
As a consequence we believe that it is prudent to continue to take a cautious
view on the short-term outlook for the group. While we expect pre-tax profits
for the year (before goodwill and exceptionals) to be ahead of 2003, they will
be below the strong result achieved in 2004 and below current market forecasts.
The company will announce its final results for the twelve months to 31 December
2005 on 4th April 2006.

|likewise i am very interested in csp - nav above share price, small profit which a takeover could very much improve via stripping of some admin costs - it may take time but i see a 20p ish takeover in due course IMO . We have a dragons nearby and livingwell and d. Lloyd which all cater for differing groups of people|
Thank for your observations.
The turn-round story attracts me.
Plus the property backed embedded value.
[ 300k trade just printed].
|we have a Dragons where I live, my wife & her friends belong to it, I looked at it but was not overly impressed. The competition within a 1 mile radius is fierce with a large David Lloyd & a Top Notch in walking distance. A further mega large David Lloyd is being built about 10 miles away....
On the positive side, they seem to have a hard-core contingent (including my wife) who would not leave there & go somewhere else...
£60 per month for membership...seems average enough. Cant see how they will attract new members though as the club is relatively small compared to the David Lloyd - although parking is free, a major plus in the town area...|
10% growth in Dragons operating profit (excluding central costs) to £6.4m
2.6% improvement in Dragons operating margin
Club membership up 3% on like for like basis to 51,237
Club joiners up 5% on like for like basis to 27,894
Transfer to AIM completed in May 2004
Capital reconstruction completed in June 20
Commenting on the future, Martyn Grealey, Chief Executive of Crown Sports, said;
'In the short term the market remains tough and highly competitive but we are
continuing to make progress with net membership growth of over 3% in the first
quarter of 2005 which represents a significant achievement in challenging market

further significant reductions in our debt levels, reflecting the success of our

fitness sector. The work undertaken by the management team has resulted in the
successful completion of our turnaround plan that has established a distinctive
platform on which to build our business for the future.' Ray Pierce, Chairman.

Final dividend proposed 0.27p (2003 : nil)|
|i mean 17p|
|net assets 27p per share
why is this so low
|LA Fitness deal surely further enhances buy case for Crown...50-100% cheap in my view...don't forget NAV is way above share price|
|Hi Wonder Boy,
Felt you were fighting a bit of a lone battle on this stock so have taken a position to join you!! I agree that, on the face of it, this is a prime candidate for takeover,VC,MBO etc...even if this is not the case co. seems to have dramatically turned around its fortunes and should be able to power on independently. The tight share register is, in my opinion, a positive as it keeps the punters away and makes any end game so much easier to deliver.
Good luck WB and all other holders.|
|Anyone else think this could be a takeover target?
LA Fitness CEO is known to be on the acquisition trial. Loads of the other big players are now in the hands of the private equity houses & everyone knows their appetite for takeovers.
NAV of £50 million (surely due an upward revision in light of property prices in recent years). Reliable and growing profit circa £2 million. Market cap of just £27million = BARGAIN!|
|I picked this up ---
The Company has announced that it is proceeding with the transfer to trading on AIM. It is expected that admission to trading on AIM and cancellation of listing will become effective on 6th May 2004.|
