CA need to act swiftly before the current Ceo sp$nks the remainder of the co.down the drain.|
|Need to convince the bondholders to take a haircut. Debt for equity? Tricky scenario but with CA involved, could come good for shareholders eventually.|
|samdb - indeed when it eventually goes fully digital there will be significant cost savings, the big risk though is debt levels - I've been in these kind of situations before with shareholders being wiped out on restructurings. Then again CA sees value here ...|
|This is YELL all over again.....|
|Completely agree with. My only point is that watching for the moment it turns could lead to some good value here.|
|yes but increase in digital advertising revenues of 0.2m vs decline in print of 6 m|
|A move to digital with increasing revenues there and disposal of non-core titles at almost £1.5m each.They have around 170 titles.So all down to how the board manages the decline, disposals and move to digital.|
|declining business and net debt is 10x profit before tax ?|
|Panmure Gordon reiterate BUY recommendation for Johnston Press|
|gawd i forgot to buy in again. I was too busy at WEY. Hope it goes well, and if it "burns slowly" up I'll catch the 8am train in.|
|Fingers crossed then dazz - let's hope they surprise us in a nice way. I imagine we'll all be on here before the open to see what wonderful numbers AH has for us. I daresay we'll all have something to say. If they're really bad we might even get a visit from lord crybaby. After that I intend staring sullenly at the brexit impact.|
|Hi eddy, as always we shall see and as said probably the usual tripe tomorrow but I hope that there might be a glimmer on how we reduce the debt.|
|Good day to bury bad news. No one will be talking about anything other than brexit. jpr's usual sorry performance will not be visible in mainstream news. The numbers aren't going to be very important anyway. Generally we get continuing decline of overall revenue and sometimes increasing percentage on profitability. The key news will be around the business strategy and any appointments or leavers from the main board. Good luck to everyone long.|
|Let hope for a good outlook statement tomorrow.|
|Regarding some post which regards JPR as a family company, i sadly disagree. The Johnston family have no management function now.|
|Sunday i would be a positive announcement. I'm new to the jpr party and seems I got in at the wrong time (28p). Doesn't sound like you're expecting any fireworks the ? I can live in hope|
|Obiwoncanary, I think as per all the updates from the last few years they will be pretty disappointing with a continued decline in print and advertising, probably partially masked by a good performance from The I.
Things I am interested in seeing which might push the share price upwards:
- Have they noticed an upturn since Google's problems escalated? Doubt this will be longterm if there is an upturn.
- What are their plans for the debt This could be interesting as I havent seen anything from CA recently so I am hoping that they have met with Ashley Highfield and have an agreement of some sort. There is also the debt review from Rothschilds as well.
- Are there anymore disposals lined up?
- Maybe an announcement of the launch of a Sunday version of The I|
|Surely a positive announcement will see a upturn in sp? I'm not saying there will be a positive announcement, I just hope there is :-)|
|This Google furore will give a temporary boost as people need to spend their ad budgets somewhere. It will all blow over soon enough but hopefully a few agencies will keep a mix of ad media in future.|
|CGOD, I agree, that is the general tendency once a share has risen before the results often to attract the buyers in.
I've sold here, and tni too, going to watch and wait and play the timing game again, America raising interest rates, economy slowing just feel its safer to be out. Plus clearly there is going to be no overnight cure here unless change is made at the top, Ashley and his fellow employees at the top are all having a good time on JPR's credit card, I can't see them being weaned of that anytime soon.
For example JPR may have had an offer on the table but could have refused on the basis they feel they can turn it around, it is a long standing family business that will resist a takeover unless their hand is forced. IMHO.
On a positive note, the I weekender had over 20 pages of advertising, that must be a record.|
|On results shares have a tendency to go down?|
|What are your predictions for next weeks results? I have 100k shares and I am a little nervous|
|Netcurtians, I've got a big position here and in the short term I'll be holding or even adding as JPR is only going up.However, this is a sunset business that won't be around forever. Your suggestion that online advertising will slow down and ad buyers will return to the print press is complete nonsense.|
|Its time some one smelt the coffee - Ads need to be WANTED... They only really work in magazines and Newspapers - especially HOME and GARDEN sections - but probably MOTOR too and MUSIC of course - plays and theatre.
Its not rocket science - its has to be newspapers. What the industry needs is cheap embedded chips in wafer thin , bendy white material that can be used to read papers - a big big brother to the kindle - so we can watch video clips in our 'papers' (as seen on Harry Potter)...
The industry NEEDS to CLUB together and produce a NEWSPAPER KINDLE - you can read your papers on-line but only via NEWSPAPER TECH - A NEWSPAPER KINDLE.
Like the Daily Mirror once produced the Mirror Dinghy, the big players need to produce a News Paper Kindle.
Google is old failed tech. IT DOES NOT WORK as an advertising medium..
