|Schroders increased by 1mill. Begs the question who is selling to them and forcing the price down.|
|Final div approx 3.5p + 3p special ( my opinion only)Ex-div 6th Oct. Paid around 10th Nov|
|From previous update..."The Group's performance for the first half was ahead of the Board expectations and the Board therefore now expects the Group's profits will significantly exceed current market expectations for the financial period ending 30 April 2017. The Board continues to be optimistic about the Group's future prospects."Finals due end of June -ish|
|6th April.. 3.09p div paid 11th May to shareholders on reg 7th April|
|What's the ex divi date?|
|Future us bright, long term holder, added more recently, just one to tuck away.
This leg up could,if all goes well, break us through long term resistance @ 176p|
|Anyone like to guestimate if a special div will be given and, if so, how much?|
|depends if you are worth £10m or £250m Shauney as to what the £7.5m might meant to you lol and whether its a whim or not|
|If you look at their previous special dividends they equate to about 1p per 3.5 million above their net cash of 50 million.Every little helps of course...BUT
"This disposal is part of the Group's review of its property portfolio in order to group the activities of its head office and UK operations, including the newly formed Retail business"
I never thought of this investment from the property angle.What other property do they have?
The CEO has made nearly 500 grand on his recent purchases here.He already held 20% of the company.Hubris?
Would i splash out £7.6 million on a whim?No way.|
|They will do mike, assuming it's lumped on to a cash balance that is over £50m at year end and that the cash is not needed for any other purpose, as per their dividend policy.|
|They should give it out as a special div|
|Must be a mark up in the share price tomorrow after that excellent news.
Extraordinary profit, not accounted for in the accounts?!
|I think once you get into the business of revaluations accounting standards mean you have to keep redoing it.|
|Not too far from me, nice place, would be a little quiet for some.|
|Yes, I just saw that, eeza.
An unexpected profit of £2.4m is all very nice but, well, shouldn't the book value have been a little more up to date than that? Or is it normal accounting practice not to revalue property at intervals?|
" Sale of Head Office Site
Photo-Me, the instant service equipment group, has today exchanged contracts with Shanly Homes Limited (SHL) for the sale of the freehold of its head office buildings in Bookham, Surrey for a consideration of GBP2.5 million. The land being sold comprises two buildings on a site of approximately 0.16 hectares.
SHL will pay Photo-Me GBP2.5 million in cash on completion, which is due to take place in early June 2017. The book value of the land being sold is GBP0.1 million and therefore the profit on the sale, before costs, will be approximately GBP2.4 million.
This disposal is part of the Group's review of its property portfolio in order to group the activities of its head office and UK operations, including the newly formed Retail business, into one location. This strategy will rationalise the Group's property footprint and will enable it to achieve further efficiencies in its UK operations. "|
|Patience, hold long term and add on weakness imho, well that's what I am doing.|
I think thats a first to have an update in May.Good to see.Lots to look foreward to dividend wise.Ex Interim next month and hopefully another special with the final in September.|
|Thanks for the update.|
|Had a response from IR at PHTM and they have responded by saying that the financial calendar on their website has now been updated with provisional dates for 2017 financial announcements.
It indicates PHTM plans to announce a trading update in May 2017 ahead of prelims provisionally scheduled for 27 June.
Better than nothing but disappointing that they appear to have dropped this Q3 update - maybe the decision relates to last year when they were caught out by the Japan ID card issue which resulted in an over-promise/under-deliver situation re FY results.|
|Stay in for the long term and you'll be ok imho!|
|This stock is testing me lately, I seem to have a few of them these days.|
|gleach, appreciate that, many thanks.|
|How much more impetus does any stock need than:
Massive FX movement to the upside
"Significantly exceed expectations"
£7mill share by the CEO
FTSE risen by >25%
FFS - any other stock than this would have doubled on the above.
Yet PHTM is still being thrashed by the large seller.
Management here are totally incapable of holding onto their large s/hlders who have all walked out of the door and trashed the share in the market.|
