grahamburn: No dividend in the upcoming results on 28 February - just the prospect of a rights issue to raise £185m and even then it will be close to its banking covenants. Surprised at the strength over the recent past as until the rights issue is formalised, there must be some doubt over the direction of the share price.
bakunin: Is it just me? Doesn't the T/U read "more or less back to normal trading patterns in Q4" after the blip in Q3? Annual PBT of £50m in a bad year and a MCAP of £400m. Annual revenue of circa £800m and a more usual P/S between 1 and 2 ought to give it a MCAP north of £1bn. Good management ought to be able to reinstitute the £80m+ PBT to further justify a £1bn+ valuation. Previous takeover attempts were at £1bn+ when the group was far smaller (and also less endebted). The delayed rights issue seems to be sending the message that the old CEO has gone and they are now open again to suitors. Anybody interested should make a move before the rights issue goes through. Take off the £180m rights issue from a £1bn valuation (the rights issue is aimed at leaving them with a more usual debt situation) and takeover offers from well-run companies that can raise margins through efficiency and synergy should quite easily be in the area of £800m, ie a share price around 300p. Why negotiate more covenant headroom when a rights issue is imminent? Unless the rights issue is just a red herring. In any case, I have not seen a rights issue yet that is not a give-away. In fact, some brokers, eg one beginning with a B, try their hardest to make you lose out on your rights, sending emails/letters that give you just 1 day to opt for your rights.
bakunin: Well, that will teach me to always do my homework. At least I am in relatively close to the current price compared to the poor sods who were holding L-T in the 300-400 range. I'm not sure I have ever seen a pre-announcement of a rights issue. Perhaps they thought it would get leaked over the next couple of months and that the share price would just grind its way down on speculation. Or maybe they now actually want a buyer and they are trying to flush them out? Ditching the dividend is a way of making them a more attractive target (op profits go to paying down debt rather than distributed to current owners). With the debt, the buyout value wasn't likely to be much more than £500m (meaning it would cost the buyer circa £800m: £500m equity + £300m or so of debt). So, I was and still am building a position for the possibility that it gets offers in the 180 range. As long as their markets have not deteriorated more badly than it would seem.
thewisher: Index Rebalance Market Cap data cut-off:29 November 2016Only a short time for Lrd to jump back up before they are demoted from ftse 250 so expect another drop in share price
gordo58: Any body know the what the share price would have to be to avoid relegation from FTSE 250 ??
tsmith2: Graph showing recovery in share price imo
meijiman: Strange-you are correct re the ceo ability to kitchen sink. I looked at this with a view to buying in after the share price collapse. Bearded one as Chairman is a no and the ceo has huge credibility issues as he has been the FD prior to getting the top job. A shambolic mess by the look of it. The charts suggest it has had issues before and bounced back. The institutions will need to be convinced the right people are in charge. Hopefully a few are looking at the bearded wonder with a view to making changes.
twistednik: Hmmm, could Laird become a takeover target given the drop in share price and weak sterling ? A larger player with more pricing power could drive enough revenue / cost synergies to make an acquisition worth while...
contrarian2investor: Great post churchtower. The yield and growth projections should eventually attract a fresh wave of investors over the next six months. Which should then take the LRD price over £3.50p. c2i
