|strange that they write down the value by £2.1m when the land prices are rising, also why has it taken so long to get planning approval?
on the plus side the board have stated that property sale proceeds will be returned to shareholders via a dividend during second half.|
|Results published today:
All rather underwhelming - we can go back to sleep for a while. NAV has reduced by 13.6% mainly due to properties being revalued downwards.|
|Email response (from the co sec) to my annual question:
'The annual accounts will be published around a similar time to last year’s and will be on the website around 7 March 2016.'|
|yes however I suspect the land to be sold off and 'costs/admin/fees' to eat into any possible share holder returns. It's a crime that whilst trading and salaries are being paid those that invested originally are ignored.|
|jamrol - that article was dated February of last year. Things have moved on since then. You will have read the last annual report and I take it that the site is either "property 3" or "property 4" of that report.

|Sad but interesting. Thanks for sharing jamrol.|
|'Automatic planning permission would be granted on many brownfield sites in England in an attempt to boost house-building, under government plans.'
Whoever's in charge of Dyson's Property Portfolio please take note! It's nearly four years ago that the company signed a 'five year planning and promotion agreement' with St Modwen Developments Ltd [for five propertied] so you would have hoped something would be happening by now. But then, would they deem it necessary to let us, as co-owners, know if anything had been sold? Doubtful.|
|26th June 2015 - Dyson Enjoy a Successful Week at GMTN 2015.
Between 16th June and 20th June Dyson exhibited at the GIFA exhibition, Dusseldorf 2015. The exhibition attracted 78,000 visitors from 120 countries. As expected the exhibition was a great success for Dyson, due to visits from existing customers, agents and the potential to talk to new customers and discover new markets for Dyson products.
Talking about the exhibition, Dyson Technical Ceramics Managing Director - Richard Taylor stated:
“The GIFA 2015 exhibition was a great opportunity to meet customers, agents, establish new contacts and meet new potential customers. It also provided the opportunity to present our high quality products to a global audience.”
Photographs of the exhibition can be seen on the Dyson Facebook page.

|Anyone in Dusseldorf next week?
I wonder whether the dictators oops, sorry, directors will deem it sufficiently significant to inform us of any sale of property. A forlorn hope but you never know.
O/t: garth, further to the question you posed in , the company I decided to gamble on (and have done) is ELCO. I attended their AGM last Monday and came away feeling very impressed. It's not going to be a 'get rich quick' situation but slowly, slowly will suit me fine. I won't get CARried away this time!|
|Unless there is a big change then, judging by past form, we will not hear anything until next March. You have to remember that the group is controlled by the banks and I suspect they will wait a few years until the property portfolio is developed and then sold and then dispose of the rump trading subsidiary and wind up.|
|so has there been any investor news in the last couple of months ?|
|what would happen if they sold the company ?
would be interesting to know number of employees and the wage bill!|
|Having spoken with the co sec this morning, I discovered that the 2014 results had been lurking on the company website when I'd looked first thing this morning; having got to the Investor Relations - News Archive page, all I could see there was the year ending 30 September 2013 Report & Accounts but, owing to some quirk in cyberspace, I needed to 'Refresh' this page and voila up pops the 2014 R & A.
As you wrote sharw, a shocking year for Dyson Technical Ceramics - turnover down 40%, loss of £1.5m - with the prospects for 2015 not looking a great deal better either. The Property Business side, however, could be the saviour again this year and, with the way things are shaping up, could possibly become DYS's main earner in the future with engineering as a mere subsidiary (imho).|
|The notice of results and AGM arrived in the post this morning and the results are here:
A dreadful result from the remaining operating activity was offset by property revaluations as a result of progress with planning permissions etc. That leaves net assets up £1.4m at £19.543m. I make that 7.1p/share - and they last traded at 7p albeit in January last year.|
|Well, the 2nd March has now passed (see co sec's reply ) but still no sign of last year's results on DYS's website. My anxiety level is therefore rising by the minute (lol).
Fwiw, I'll try phoning Mr McQuinn later this morning.|
|I let you know G, when I've stopped buying ..... still have another 100k or so to go yet. Been in it for 13+ years and seen the share price rise and then fall (sounds familiar but even worse than you know who!). I've decided It's the only one I intend to invest in during this year.
When will I ever learn!!|
|What did you choose ansc?|
|Hi garth. Thanks and best wishes are returned.
I don't think DYS is going to get our pulses racing any time soon but I'm holding out high hopes for my 2015 Nap selection which has also been through the 'wringer'; looks to have emerged in good shape at long last tho' ..... and I don't mean CAR!!|
|Thanks Ansc! And best wishes for the new year.
|I e-mailed the company sec last week asking whether, now that DYS consists of just one subsidiary, us minority owners (sometimes referred to as shareholders!) might be getting our one piece of company news a lot earlier than last year. His reply was thus:
"Just before Christmas we decided to run with a time table similar to last year’s and are currently aiming to despatch accounts and put them on our website circa 2nd March. I appreciate that may not be as early as you would currently like but we do keep this under review each year."
Not much change there then. On that basis, fellow shareholders shouldn't hold their breath in anticipation of any good news!!|
|end of year report due next Tuesday
|Riches are coming our way!!
