|Yes its like a comedy show at Pittards. One is reminded of a circus with baggy trousered clowns throwing pies around.|
|You have to admire this lot. If something can go wrong, it invariably does! Been watching company for literally decades and never seen any business so accident prone.|
|Its very unusual for sleepy Pittards to be troubling the scorers. Someone must have realised that the currency situation might be helpful -there again it might not.|
|Waste of time posting. Nothing will ever happen.Management will be there for ever as its run as a family firm not as a commercial company. Even 80 year old Godfrey has failed here........|
|Surprised that there has been no comment about another set of very poor figures together with such a small fall in the share price Is it that holders are resigned to the usual management statements about their own performance.
The whole board should be replaced sooner rather than later imo.|
|No problem - 200p would be very nice!|
|Thanks -hopefully then it will stay above 100p and move back towards 200p in due course.|
|I think it is operating profit.
They didn't use forward contracts to hedge in 2015 and 2014 so we might be lucky there. Sod's law means they might have hedged in 2016 but any hedges will drop out in time and sterling's weakness looks like it might be here to stay given the trade deficit, government borrowing more than targeted, uncertainty over impact of Brexit.|
|Does it say which profit line -operating profit I assume rather than PBT?
Trouble is given the usual incompetence displayed here they may have taken out a forward position at the wrong time ie bought $s forward just before sterling weakened.
But overall I think this company is in a better position -could be an overlooked sleeper!|
|My simplistic view is that the company will gain from sterling's weakness as the annual report shows that around 90% of revenues are to customers based overseas and 73% of 2015 revenue was in USD (72% in 2014).
Helpfully, and perhaps encouragingly, the annual report states that the profit impact of a 10% change in the average USD/GBP exchange rate would have been £1.8m in 2015 and £2m in 2014. So very significant.|
|I note the shares are back to 100p. This company should be a gainer from currency though there are negatives. Quite complex to figure out as there is both transaction and translation effects here. Anyone have a view?|

Pittards exemplifies Ethiopia’s potential
my retirement fund
|Yes...that favoured word - potential!
(Sorry but it is Friday)|
|Perhaps the market thinks the new Chairman might be able to help create some shareholder value.There is potential for the share price to get back well over 100p providing the company can avoid messing up. The history though is not encouraging.
Even Godfrey failed to spark life in this old dog.|
|......and paying at least a 100% premium to the current share price.....
Looking forward to the RNS on Monday!|
|Maybe MUL will buy the company!|
|Some steady buying continues to push share price up.....is there something good pending or is this another false dawn???|
|mr Boyd is one of the most competent, humble, visionary industrialists that UK has ever seen - and the sun will rise in west tomorrow!|
|These would be interesting at this price if it wasn't for the fact that the stock levels are so high and go up all the time, why can't they turn some of that into cash? Are they tied into supply agreements or something? I thought they produced their own leather in Ethiopia or some such.|
|Apparently Boyd is retiring after a stellar record at Pittards.
I will now list his major achievements-.......
1. sacking the useless FD
er that's it folks.
Let's hope the new Chairman gets a grip on this serial underachiever.
Portmeirion is an example of what can be accomplished with a top management team.|
|the only comfort is the CFO will stay on as a NED once replaced - with her still there, the company´s biggest asset - the tax losses ! - can only increase! how on earth Boyd has gotten away with this............and last year he brought the useless ms Cretton back on board.........shame on Boyd, shame!!!|
|Pitiful. I note the deadleg Chairman is leaving after presiding over this shocking mess.|
|they benefit tremendously from the pound crashing as sales are mostly in dollar. would not surprise if that incompetent FD has sold dollars at 1.60 or so..........shame on Boyd who for what ever reason has protected her for too long. but at 65p it is only a matter of time before there is an opportunistic bid on the table.|
|Yes-Ive only just noticed that the FD is going.
I see their broker is WHI -now what a surprise. Two rotten apples together.|
