The interim dividend was held at 5.67p per share.'Given weakness into this release, there's good reason here to see a strong share price bounce,' he said.'H1 2017 profit before tax at £31.6 million is a touch above the £30.5 million consensus and in line with Jefferies estimates at £31.5 million. Q2 product revenue growth reached +2.7% year-on-year from -1.6% Q1, taking H1 product sales to £300.9 million versus Jefferies estimates at £294 million,' he wrote in a note to investors.Spooner added that 'power brands continue to lead performance' with JD Williams, Simply Be and Jacamo building up customer numbers. 'We have a 250p price/earnings based price target. As for other retailers, there's the unknown of the post-Brexit economy and sterling weakness to navigate.'N Brown shares gained 29p to close at 206.7p yesterday. They have fallen 43% since March.
forsh: It's interesting. All flat on the trading front but some ups and downs within the make-up. The drop in GM is a concern but down to 'investment' in promotion - i.e price cutting. The rise in debt is a bigger concern - again, but remember that most if not all of this debt supports the creditor balances on credit customers; here, the size of the bad debt write off is a further worry. Recognising 'the importance of the dividend to shareholders' probably says something about the shareholder base, including the Alliance family. The share price rise look like a combination of relief; a maintained dividend and the very low rating compared to the peer group. Looking at the consensus estimates for the next two years, the group is flat lining so once the rating discount has narrowed, the shares will be dead money ?
liquidkid: Something not quite right with that transaction. The Tax liability only arises when selling the shares not when exercising (buying) the options. Also exercise relates to an award dated 2 August 2013 when the share price was 523p! So even if the options were awarded at a massive deep discount there surely would be a Tax LOSS on the sale of these options. So why has a TAX LIABILITY been explicitly notated to the 2013 options? And why SELL? the bottom? She must be getting some really bad financial advise. Could be a US citizen - then she has a tax liability on exercize.
ed 123: Hmmm ... Yes, Chief Executive was gifted shares via the option award but chose to sell a portion in order to raise the funds to pay the C. £185k tax due. It would have given confidence, after the big slide in the share price, if she had paid the tax from another source and kept the full number of shares awarded. AGM tomorrow. Anyone going? I won't be.
ed 123: I may be out of step with everyone here (and the market too) but I wouldn't be surprised on Thursday to see like-for-like up a bit, maybe +1%. The new warehouse was completed and is helping to give better service (quicker response times) to customers. Also, shoppers are buying increasingly online and that should favour N Brown, compared to the physical shop retailers. Progress on Fit 4 the Future should be updated too. It is costing a lot and taking some time to produce returns on the investment. If there are no problems reported, I'm thinking the share price may bounce a bit from here. As usual, no advice intended.
ed 123: Aishah. Yes, despondency rules. I've seen 10 analyst price targets. They range from 260p to 415p. Current share price? ..... 243p ............ below the lowest target. Will it need fresh bad news to fall further or will it just continue its momentum without further news? Who knows? When the share price was this low before, mid-2012, it went on to double over the following 12 months. Could that be repeated?
jbarcroftr: Looking forward to June 16 No rush in my opinion The upside if they get it right might well double the share price
zcaprd7: Profit warnings come in threes, chart looks awful, new low territory, management already preparing their excuses. Either IT system or brexit, take your pick. Where's her chutzpah now? And all this Northern talent working on her IT? I hope she doesn't survive this because she is a female CEO... She's surprised by the share price reaction! I bet after her share purchase! Not gloating, but glad I sold out of this...
ed 123: Management seems to be moving in the right direction, but big change takes time and costs money. Added a few, myself. NAI. There are costs of Fit 4 the Future and cost of the Shaw warehouse extension; both with benefits still to flow. Also, the Group has been hit by the subdued market and the impact of weak sterling. Market reaction? May be fair enough? I'm not too bothered about today's reaction, more concerned with where the share price is likely to be in 12 months + time. No guarantees, of course, but I think there's a good chance we will see both the environment and the Company in a better position 12 months + from now. IF things go well, there may be a smooth roll out of Fit 4 the Future, continuation of BWNG's strong online revenue growth (up 15% for the reported year), a reduction in exceptional costs, and stronger Sterling.
kenmitch: The danger from the share price perspective is that they are already warning of likely IT implementation problems (which strongly suggests these are already happening) sending the share down 15% so far today. So if as seems quite likely they warn again in due course (June trading update?) the share price will be hit by a double whammy. I hold but dithering whether to cut the losses or hold for what still looks a potentially exciting strategy change. Have no knowledge about the Management team but wondering whether there are problems there.. i.e new blood needed for the big shift from the old methods that worked so well for years???
