james smith: Confidence? I look at it like this. If the price goes up I will buy. If it goes down I will sell. I take a very short term view always. It is confidence in the share price that concerns me. I can't see what could be restructured. When governments are your customers things take time. Governments don't suddenly decide to change the design of a note and reissue currency overnight. When I was Group Management Accountant in the banknote division in the 1970s they thought of themselves as a conglomerate. They had Formica and Potterton Boilers which gave more security, in theory. Mind you, then, the banknote division was making the money and constantly moaning about the drain of having Formica and Potterton so you can't win. Can you? It seems that they have rather narrowed their market. We were even printing "family planning" comics for the government in Columbia back then. There was also Security Express. Those were the days of regular armed robberies so the internal monthly reports were always entertaining. We had the truly wonderful robbery where the crew stopped the van and went into a public lavatory for a pee, leaving the van in the road to be driven off. They were even crazy enought to start up a Security Express (Wells Fargo it was out there) in Columbia. They were delighted to even get a van to it's destination.

iaincc: Have I got the maths wrong ? With EPS of say 16p and a generous PE of 15 Share price = £2-2.50 At which point the 8p dividend is effective 3.2% That's about as attractive as the Chairman's future

jange: A most odd share. Any whiff of bad news and £100 million is simply wiped off the value. Any slight 'good' news and the share price rockets by 10%. Bit like an aim share.

jange: Yep, Aa rather dull company and a dull share. Not very happy that Cobbold is leaving. He performed very well at Smiths and managed the takeover at Chloride. He has repaired dlar to an extent but the share price remains in the doldrums. I just hope they win the BOE contract.

quepassa: Yield now an astonishing 5.6%. Not a robust dividend cover ratio but no real reason in my view to suspect whatsoever anything other than retaining ( possibly increasing) dividend. The general pack of analysts are around the 850 Price Target range with Investec giving a BUY at a Target Price of 890p on 31st. January. The analysts see upside to the current share price. Sentiment not particularly supportive and not helped by the unnecessarily dour tone of announcements. I think the last two posts are interesting about Oberthur. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

alphahunter: LONDON (Dow Jones)--France's Francois-Charles Oberthur Fiduciaire SA Wednesday appointed the former chief executive of De La Rue PLC (DLAR.LN) as an adviser to its chairman, fueling speculation that it will revive its interest in acquiring the world's largest printer of bank notes. Oberthur denied it was intent on making an offer for De La Rue, restarting the clock set by U.K. regulators on a six-month cooling off period that was due to expire in July. "Following recent press and analyst speculation, we want to clarify, without any reservation, that we have no intention of making an offer for De La Rue PLC," said Oberthur Chairman Jean Pierre Savare. But analysts say it could be only a matter of time. Olivetree Securities special situations strategist Mark Kelly said in a note to clients that Oberthur's announcement "puts a lid on" De La Rue's share price, preventing it from running up on mergers-and-acquisitions speculation. "So for us, it remains that Oberthur want to own this asset very much--but are prepared to bide their time and wait to strike until the time is right for them," Kelly said. "We will see another approach eventually, despite the timeline slipping today the probability of this outcome shouldn't decline too far." Privately owned Oberthur, which produces bank notes, checks and secure identity documents, in January abandoned plans to bid for De La Rue after the U.K. company rejected an indicative offer worth about GBP926 million, or 935 pence a share. At the close, De La Rue's shares were down 24 pence, or 2.9%, at 798 pence, making it one of the biggest fallers in the FTSE 250 index, which ended down 0.4%. The stock has shed 12% in value in the past 12 months. Oberthur began pursuing De La Rue as the company struggled to overcome production problems that had tarnished its reputation and put its share price under pressure. De La Rue in July 2010 suspended banknote paper production and launched an investigation into quality issues, which found that employees had deliberately falsified certain paper specification test certificates for a limited number of customers. Then-CEO Hussey in August resigned to take responsibility for the problems after little more than 18 months in the top job. Previously, he had been managing director of the security paper and print division. "His detailed understanding of the market and long-standing relationships across the industry will be invaluable to Oberthur as we seek to continue to grow our banknote and security printing business," Savare said. U.K. takeover rules now prevent Oberthur from rebidding for De La Rue before Dec. 1. "Oberthur want this asset but are prepared to bide their time," said Olivetree's Kelly.

topvest: I will hopefully get some more at £3 or so. The Dela Rue board seem to be acting as badly as I've seen a board handle an issue. Press the "self-destruct" button!! The French will presumably now wait for 6m and the share price to collapse and then may take another look. In the meantime, the Dela Rue board are going to be looking for another job shortly in my view.

topvest: The Board of Dela Rue seems to have mis-managed things pretty badly here in my opinion. First they goof everything up by creating massive uncertainty, then they think it's ok not to announce an approach at a massive premium to the bombed share price. They seem to have lost the plot and Dela Rue holders that remain deserve to be put out of their misery by being acquired by the French bidder. I wouldn't be surprised for some holders to be putting claims in if they sold out at a much lower price when information hadn't been disclosed which would have materially increased the price.
