ed 123: Yes, rathkum, I think it will go higher from here. Atm, it's at the top of a channel, paused for direction. Btw, Kingfisher today reported Q2 France sales up 10%, Poland sales up 15% and Spain sales up 19%. A pickup in Eurozone will be good for LWB, and so will a conversion back to a weaker Sterling. Brett Simpson is raising the quality of the Group. We are due an announcement of a solution to Bonar Natpet soon. Goes ex a 1p dividend next week. While things are so quiet, I've played with some numbers ... 330m shares issued. At say 65p, market cap is £214m. Add deferred share value of £31m. Add in net debt of £140m and pension deficit of £15m gives enterprise value of £400m. EBITDA for the current year £35m(?). Return on notional investment would therefore be 8.75% pa. LWB replaced its debt recently at an interest rate of only 2.57% pa. (It is considered to be a safe business to lend to.) There is scope for someone who wants Colback, etc. to bid say 100p for the ordinaries. Then enterprise value would jump to £516m. Funded at say 4%pa, would cost £21m - easily covered by the ebitda of £35m. LWB is quiet (not a single share traded so far today), but has value at the current share price, imo. (NAI)

ed 123: Sale of the Sports and Leisure Division, announced today, has been well received by the market. Share price up 3.3p or 5% at 63p. Brett Simpson has settled in and is moving the Group in the right direction. Interim results to be released on Wednesday. I'm hoping for news on the Bonar Natpet facility.

rathkum: Regardless of the pending interim results next month, the recent slide in the share price to 56p was overdone, so no surprise in the up tick.

ed 123: AGM to start at 10:00am on 31 March, at Pullman Hotel (near Euston Station). The recent share price performance was unexpected (by me!). You've got your under 62p entry point, if you want it, Puffintickler. I find that my interpretation of share price falls is conditional. If it's a share I'm holding, any fall must be due to a short selling conspiracy. When it's a falling share I don't hold, it's just the market giving its opinion. Seeking a rational explanation, I've opened my mind and revisited the results. It still looks ok to me. Notably, the outlook was for further growth this year, despite some market weakness. From the Chairman (2 February 2016), As we look to 2016, ......... Despite these continuing economic headwinds, the Board is confident of achieving further progress. For anyone who is holding, a bit of incentive to hang on - there's a 1.8p dividend going ex on 17 March. It's on a full year 5% yield at 55p. All just my own opinion; no advice intended.

ed 123: The share price has looked firm since the agm, today up 0.5p while FTSE100 is down 85 points. Institutional investors must have been somewhat encouraged by what they heard. Thanks to all here for their posts. The next trading news will likely be the interims in July.

ed 123: Agree that the IMS read slightly negatively. However, they say they're confident about meeting expectations for the full year. Share price up 2p today (relief response?) after falling about 5p (including 1.75p xd) in the week before the IMS. I see that N+1 Singer have reiterated their 'hold' recommendation and their target of 54p. Closed today at 57p, yielding about 4.7%. I guess the market is waiting for clearer signs. Last year was the first full year for L&B ownership of Texiplast, but half way through the year demand fell sharply. The directors say they are still confident that buying Texiplast was a good move. The other trading issue was the slow start up of the Saudi Arabian jv. Even today, the ims said, "sales development remains slow." Again, the directors sound confident that it's just a matter of time. Other parts of the Group are going well, so that compensates. Metier9, Lateralam, rathkum and others. I read the annual report and trading statement ahead of the start of the meeting. Some of your concerns were already covered, so I didn't ask. For instance, 'impact of the weak Euro' was said in the ims to be balanced by strength of US dollar. Also, there's plenty written in the Annual Report on marketing strategy. Additionally, Brett Simpson stated more than once that they were moving to a more customer focussed, rather than product focussed marketing. Then, there's the question of debt. If we look back over the past five years, we see that the net gearing for the year ended 30 Nov 2014 was (just) the lowest of any the last five years. Also, in the Annual Report they again mention looking for bolt-on acquisitions - so not a sign that they want to lower debt. And, they cover net debt and re-financing in the Annual Report without stating any intention to reduce debt. To me, all the signs were that they were comfortable with their debt level and had no plans to reduce it, so I didn't ask. It was a pleasant agm. I had already been informed there would not be a presentation. I like presenatations as they give management a chance to put their own emphasis on various aspects of the business. Caveat, though, that they could omit things which don't reflect well on them. They may do a presentation at next year's agm. Overall, I think I'm with the market on this one. I'm holding while waiting for the next news (interims in July?) about Texiplast and the Saudi Arabian jv. Hope that's some help.

ed 123: Metier9 and Lateralam Ok, will take your questions with me. Looking at the share price slip ahead of tomorrow's trading update, I may have a question of my own. :-/

nigelmoat: Well at current share price the dividend yield is now 5.5% and can't see that being reduced. Anticipate the European market will pick up next year with central finance projects such as big constructions and imo things could well change for the better so I am a buyer.

nigelmoat: Start of a share price recovery here with good volume of buys in last few days. Fall from last trading statement well overdone imo.
