127tolmers: Just found this thread is still active after delisting. For 12 months mid 2007 - mid 2008 the share price averaged about 120p with a peak of 150p. The business/finance fundamentals now are not materialy different from then. The major change is delisting and I would assign a 50% discount if totally illiquid or a 25% discount in their current halfway format. I voted against delisting on this basis. So for me a "fair" price today is about 90p with a proviso that profits don't fall causing liquidity to dry up. I am pleased that a reasonable exit is being offerred but will hang for 150p. The divis are still good. Family companies are always vulnerable to family splits, retirements and takeovers. I still think this is long term hold until a major event. To see a BritDAQ quote takes a lot of form filling which I gave up on. However their emails chasing my form completion suggest they have also a market buyer at 80p. I am surprised that the accounts cannot be accessed via their website. Luckily I keep my hard copies and see that note 26 shows that 976150 unapproved share options are exercisable before 2019 on achievement of a 150p share price or change of control. So there is an incentive for the directors to get the price up to 150p.
wilmdav: Excellent results in all respects, as far as I can see. £2.55m net cash at 31/12/12. On an illustrative share price of 65p, p/e for 2011 would be 5.6x and dividend yield 8.2%. Click on Excel sheet tabs for fundamental bar charts
westcountryboy: Share price instantly drops sharply! This is the second company to do this to me in the last few months: the perils of investing in cash-rich companies! The argument about the £9k seems a bit weak.
jonwig: Delisting proposed - interesting RNS. Share price could drop sharply, but if they mean what they say in the RNS, the shares might soon be a bargain. Of course there's still the risk that holders will be shafted further down the line.
myopia: good results - looks like some good growth opportunities too - nice increase in the divi as welll - seem quite confident - and a new share price high too of 125p!
stan: the buildings sale was good news but is dependent on planning consent being granted, a process which could drag on for years and then isn't assured. Also if the move does occur I have often noticed in cases like this there can be huge disruption to business continuity and seeing that the main bulk of their operating businesses will have to be transferred this could prove very problematic for profitability. All in all the share price at the moment looks fair but after the strong rises recently - someone must have got wind of this deal before it was announced to the market - it is probably best to at least take some profits.
stan: omg not good news! the results posted late in the day and not time for a real reaction by the market to the slowdown in trade...i fear a big drop tomorrow and continuing falls thereafter. This plus a few disasters i've had recently make me feel pretty despondent as I had been hoping for a big appreciation in hay's share price and fortunes to offset my losses elsewhere.
heidigynne: Should anyone drop in, this review from ArmShare, AIM Company Details. copyright acknowleged. Hay (Norman) PLC Report updated: 17th September 2004 Whilst moaning and groaning about the unfairness of life is generally a pointless exercise, it is surely difficult for even the most progressive economic liberal to explain away the market's function in respect of the allocation of capital, when the hardworking management of a stable company like Norman Hay found itself rewarded with a share price that put the company on a 10% yield; whilst parvenus, many of which will never make a profit commanded market support with seemingly effortless ease. Norman Hay's activities embrace the processing, coating and finishing of metals. The company is also involved in pollution control as well as specialist fabrication and machining. Perhaps its best known brand is "Ultraseal". The strength of sterling should be pinning its UK operations to the ground and is reportedly doing its bit; but that has not prevented the company from achieving growing sales, nor from taking vigorous action to sell its products in the United States or the Far East. Results to December 1999 however saw the £5 million increase in turnover produce a bit less than the previous year by way of earnings per share, 6.5p against 7.7p. It was almost certainly the international sales effort which led to the sharp rise in distribution and administrative expenses which were the cause of this, although a £40,000 bad debt did not help things either. Interim earnings for the period to June 2000 were much of a muchness with those of the comparable 1999 period, 3.3p as opposed to 3.4p. The Chairman was mildly optimistic about a better second-half trend, main prospects then attributed to levels of activity in the North Sea. The move to AIM was treated in a very low-key fashion. The December-2000 figures, whilst disappointing, had to bear £250,000 of exceptional costs. However cash-flow remained positive, and the dividend was held. The turnover for the six-months figures to June 2001 showed an £800,000 advance to £7.8 million, but the tightening recessionary grip squeezing the operating profits down from £530,000 to £420,000, and earnings from 3.3p to 2.1p. More sombre still was the statement telling of all operations being effected by the manufacturing slowdown, and the consequential difficulty of forecasting the outcome for the year. This was followed by news of three complementary businesses having been acquired from AEA Technology for an undisclosed price; and this followed a month later by a similarly close-mouth deal with PMD Group for the latter's engineering interests. Nevertheless turnover to December 2001 was £16 million, £2 million up on the comparable period, and even if the company had to fight hard to maintain the gross margin, good housekeeping enabled earnings per share to creep up from 2.6p to 4.1p. So the gloomy musings about prospects given the nature of the company's trade and the uncertain prospects may have been over-conservative, which is more than you can say about the staunchly-held dividend. What for many companies would have been a stout performance for the June 2002 half-year - maintained profits (2.2p per share) - had to bear not only market indifference but a gloomy statement in respect of forthcoming and unavoidable cost increases, increases which would not only impair performance in 2002 but 2003. The market's indifference was only feigned however, for it woke up long enough to mark the shares down by one third on the day. Maybe it should have slumbered on, for, if you ignore a goodwill write-off, the December 2002 full-year earnings were higher than those of 2001; the dividend has been maintained; and there was £800,000 of cash generated in the period, driving the gearing ratio to 30%. The share price recovered, but the yield was still a stout 8%. Lower sales for the first half of 2003, £8.4 against £9.8 million still produced a similar contribution to that of 2002 and identical interim earnings per share - 2.2p. A maintained interim dividend and a quietly second-half outlook underpinned the share price. This lower turnover persisted throughout the year, but that did not prevent the company registering a 10% increase in earnings per share in the full year to December 2003 - nor maintaining the dividend. A Chairman who does not prattle readily merely said that trading in 2004 was satisfactory to date. And indeed the customary, virtually unchanged, earnings (2.3p) were delivered in respect of the June interim period, along with an increased six-month dividend, 1.1p.

hugepants: Market cap is 6.12M based on share price of 42.5p and 14.42M shares in issue Operating profit of 939 + 59 (for goodwill write-orf) = 998 (974) on revenues of 16.3M (18.7M). PE of 7.3 flattered by lower than normal tax charge. NTAV = 6.15M Net current assets = 1.57M Freehold property valued at 3.15M. However this likely to be understated since 2.8M of freeholds were last valued in 1992. Long leasehold land and buildings worth 0.48M Defined contribution scheme, therefore no pension deficit.
rickster: well it's all very quiet again! I guess we'll have to sit back and pick up the divis. The share price seems static so unless we get a takeover or management buyout things don't appear to be moving! later Rickster
