knigel: Well done management for responding to the recent drop in share price with a trading update - still plenty of work to do - LFL still -8% but improved from -13% - and the Christmas period is so important this year. At least the share price should now start to recover a tad GLA
knigel: Cheers EDF - away for a few days so will read though posts at the weekend - at least it is very active and interesting here following the RNS! Personally I think opinions can change depending on the current share price - I guess even you might consider investing here if the share price drops to sub 20p? We usually all have our entry/exit price ATB all
multibagger: In happier times, I queried with the post.... "20 Nov '15 - 07:01 - 3551 of 4262 0 0 Edit Fantastic news for holders :) I'm trying to understand the gravity defying shareprice uptrend and the justification of a PE in the seventies, given the profit margins being quite small. What am I missing / don't know that is propelling the CRAW share price ? TIA :)" In Nov 2015 the price had lost touch with reality and now the sell off is overdone. Needs to time to stabilise but not likely to get back to lofty highs for sometime IMHO.
knigel: Will be interesting to see how the share price reacts today - I think most will agree that at 80p+ the share price was expensive (in hindsight) - the debate now is whether the share price is looking fair value/over sold or still too high.. I agree the next LFL will be key - at 35p I will be back in for a small investment GLA
knigel: hvs - some companies deserve a high PE ratio if they are providing high growth/profits and CRAW was trying to expand rapidly and obviously over reached .. so the market continued to rate the share price highly because until this week it was growth growth growth! Now it is not and the share price has reacted according.. as for shareholders - if you were here back in 2013/14 most would have sold out or at least banked some profits.. it's the more recent investors who have got caught out here GL
knigel: Good evening Battlebus - I was thinking earlier who it was I used to talk to here 3-4 years ago back when the share price was (I think) stuck at 5p (!!) and then you post tonight. So you eventually did bank your profits here a while back because you were a long term holder...? I sold out a while back too and could have made a bit more as the share price continued to rise. I hope not too many long termers are still here and got caught out - and for newer investors I guess the decision now is whether to cut and run or hold on for a possible gradual recovery. I will monitor for now but might be tempted back in if the share price goes down further towards 35p - directors need to buy shares now ... if they really believe and expect to turn this around GLA
evil_doctor_facilier: Do NOT expect me to be grateful to you for exposing me to that legal trap. Fortunately, I avoided it, as I am not moronic enough to act on the basis of what had to be either inside information or invented information.." Or just Fair comment of an opinion perhaps !!!!!! How you can post such bitter narcissistic pulp after my post yesterday that clearly stated to pin "no trust on others BB opinion" is staggering to say the least! Evil_doctor_facilier - 14 Sep 2016 - 12:27:52 - 4032 of 4147 But as always take what you read on this BB with a pinch of salt and DYOR. For the purposes of this Regulation, unlawful disclosure of inside information arises where a person possesses inside information and discloses that information to any other person, except where the disclosure is made in the normal exercise of an employment, a profession or duties." When you finally grasp that i have not seen any inside information to actually disclose maybe you will understand your post above is irrelevant to me? To have inside information i would have had to have seen it. I haven't ! Your post above is totally moot to me. Why do you keep ignoring this overriding fact that i have no inside information to actually disclose in the first place? My god, for the last time. YOU are not understanding the one main fundamental point here. How on earth can i release inside information when A. I am not on the 'inside' B. Have no 'inside' information. Your post above relates to someone given inside information and then passes it one, (otherwise they would be inside) what has that got to do with me??? Have you noticed there is never no Spanish Inquisition style posters like this following any share price increase, aimed at posters who had claimed good times ahead or new contracts ect ect? Oh no they are thread hero's then!!!! If i would have posted yesterday that sales are up 5% and the share price and gone up 15p today, you would not be posting this ridiculous spaghetti of innuendo at me ? Strange how losing 45% makes you want to attack others. look at yourself, you bought and held these.YOU called it wrong, no one else!!! Get over your loss, no one likes a moaner!!
nfs: Can I check some numbers with people here?I think the plan is to have around 225 stores by end of 2023 or 7 years from nowEach store has about £1m sales which they reach pretty quicklyMarket cap now is about £65m I thinkIf I assume a valuation of £1m mkt cap for each store that's a market cap of £225m or a share price of about £2.80 or 3.5 times that of today approximately.Expediting that growth is possible and the hugely impressive Noel collett has I understand commented that 225 stores could be just a staging post on the road to a much bigger number. Are people here assuming/expecting/hoping for a 3.5 times share appreciation across the next 7 years?Perhaps I am too conservative on valuation and the abilities of the team but that future share price was a bit lower than I thought it would be

davidosh: I think there are quite a few comments and issues that need addressing.... 1. The price of the placing at 42p is a large discount to the current price ? When the placing was first put together and a roadshow undertaken with selected institutions I suspect the share price was around 40p so the placing price is not at a discount to where it was sensibly priced at that point. 2. The placing price should have been adjusted ? You cannot move a price upwards significantly unless there is new material information and all the information given in the Agm statement will already have been presented to the institutions as the reason for the fundraise. 3. Is 42p a good price to raise funds ? When you consider that the share price had already multiplied by 20 times in the last 18 months and that it is on an historic multiple of over 30 at 42p and even in my best forecast it would still be on 16 for this year I think that is hot a bad rating for new money in significant size. I admit the growth is outstanding and the roll out potential as good as anything on the market but to have this chance of a rapid roll out we needed that funding in place. 4. What happened to current investors having the opportunity to invest ? I am not party to who was included or not but I suspect a number of institutions who have been buying the stock over the last few months will be on the list of placees. Private investors were very heavily buying the shares last year and in the early part of this year but I suspect institutions have been the big buyers recently and not necessarily individuals. 5. Why will they have favoured institutional backing ? General markets since mid April have been weaker and most small caps have seen drift and prices going lower by 10 to 15%. If the Crawshaw share price had drifted over the last few weeks can PIs honestly say they would have been forming a queue at 42p especially if the share price had dropped to say 35p ? Institutional demand is more certain and the need for them to get reasonable sized positions would allow a longer term view of any short term drift. 6. Why not have an open offer to allow PIs the chance to take part ? If any of you had attended the Agm you would have heard me raise exactly this point as I am in favour of at least 10% of any placing being available to current shareholders in this way. Most PIs do not have the firepower nor inclination to go into fundraisings but those who like to should be given that opportunity and I am well known to fight for such rights. To be clear...I was not inside on this placing and did not know anything about it at the time of the Agm but my questions at the meeting and the scale of the intended roll out suggested one would be needed in the next six months. I therefore made it very clear at the Agm that I wanted to be included in any such plans and that the wider shareholder base should also be included if it was financially viable dependent on the amount being raised and practicality of it. 7. How important is the near £9 million that is being raised ? Well the company was doing very nicely having opened just two new stores in the last few months and doing it from cash generated within the business but the plans are now for a doubling of new stores almost every year ie five this year ten next then 20 and so one. You have seen the numbers quoted for six years time and if Crawshaw get there and are still independent then the share price will be a huge (yes huge !) multiple of the 42p placing. Each new store is likely to turnover £1.25m as a minimum at today prices and probably £1.75m when you see the like for likes being achieved within just three years so revenues for the group could be £100m within that time and profits almost ten times where they are now and that is still with just the one distribution centre (60 stores) and national roll out still to come. I really believe this is a great roll out story and food is very defensive and resilient even if the economy slows and the cheaper bulk meat deals are proving very popular with growth considerably higher than anything the supermarkets are capable of. That is probably the greatest risk to shareholders and seeing the roll out to full potential.....I think a Tesco or Morrison under intense pressure will be looking for new ideas to capture market share and win back customers and revenues....Crawshaw will come on the radar and that of others with good high street store locations to help speed a national roll out too. So raising money gives us a chance to get there first. I am making some assumptions here and will be doing some more detailed figures in the next few weeks but with regards the placing I know little more than that. I think Crawshaws is still a great company with excellent potential and now has the fuel to get there. It will have many challenges and rapid growth throws up management, HR, IT and property acquisition issues but finding a new CEO with roll out experience is the best place to start. I know numerous fund managers are very excited by the potential and if it just gets half way there I will be very happy indeed....100 stores by 2020 sounds absolutely fine to me !
