treenie: With lower fuel costs and continued growth across the group companies I think the share price is too low at present and will be buying more in the expectation of a decent run up to and after the next set of results.
battlebus2: Directors buying and this mornings news all we need now is the share price to react :)) This CHP Plant will generate a strong return on investment in the plant's equity as well as providing the Group with a 16 year biomass fuel supply contract, a long-term wood drying income stream and valuable engineering revenue on the development. Increasingly, we are seen as being a very reliable fuel supplier and so the partner of choice, which is why we are already the leading UK supplier of biomass, a position which we anticipate strengthening further"
yewtrees: We need to know more information. They are vague about some items. The Carlisle airport planning is currently being decided. I thought the new distribution warehouse was a standby plan if they were not to get the airport go-ahead. So what is happening there? The share price has been doing well recently. Surely it would have been going down prior if it were not good for the company. Only the people behind the scenes know though.
lpavlou: Will be interesting to see what they report . Can't help thinking it will be disappointing news given the share price recovery
this_is_me: The recovery in the share price continues, now 50% up on my buying price at the start of May.
this_is_me: There is no way you can put such a precise figure on fair value, which in any case depends on the aims of various assorted investors; some want growth, some capital growth, some want to buy and forget, some want short term price action etc. In my view the share price should reach new highs as the company both pays a good yield and is growing.
lpavlou: Sorry, also just found this dated yesterdayStobart Group, the UK-listed owner of road hauliers Eddie Stobart, has hired Lansons Communications to rebuild its reputation in the City.Hauliers: Eddie Stobart is part of the Stobart GroupLansons has been retained to handle the group's financial PR following a three-way pitch.The agency previously worked as the group's financial PR adviser five years ago before College Hill picked up the brief in 2008. The group most recently used Square1 Consulting to support its City and PR work.Stobart's long-term brand, corporate and PR agency Influence Associates is unaffected by the appointment and will work with Lansons to handle Stobart's corporate reputation.Lansons chief executive Tony Langham said that Stobart was 'one of Britain's only industrial super brands' and the agency would look to 'rebuild Stobart's reputation in the City' by seeking a new comms approach to its financial audience.Langham said: 'We had a positive impact on Stobart's communication with the City five years ago and we aim to do so again.'Lansons worked on the logistics giant's stock market listing in 2007. However, media speculation suggests the group may be plotting to delist from the London Stock Exchange following a share price slump that saw it leave the FTSE 250 index and the resignation of executive chairman Avril Palmer-Baunack.Langham said a top comms priority was to 'get across the value within the group', including the future value that will come from its ownership of London Southend Airport and its growing biomass division.Langham will lead the account, supported by assoc-iate director Anna Schirmer and broadcast specialist Jo Candy.Eddie Stobart's road haulage fleet numbers 2,500 trucks, with the group employing 6,000 people across 50 sites.
bernie37: Rationalisation Pressure like this from the City is something that will really put the spotlight on Stobart. Jonathan Jackson, head of equities at stockbrokers and advisors Killik & Co, tells CM that if Invesco had supported Palmer-Baunack's rise to the top at Stobart Group "it would address one of our main issues with the stock – that the portfolio is too widely spread". He added: "I'm conscious that the prospect of a portfolio rationalisation is likely to have a beneficial effect on the share price." That means that Stobart could put some of its assets up for sale, including anything from under-performing parts of the transport business to London Southend airport and Carlisle Lake District airport. "We are concerned about the broadening spread of the group, the ability to execute in a number of areas, and the level of financial gearing, all at a time of heightened macro-economic uncertainty," says Jackson. As a stock picker, he is advising those with the cash to reduce the number of shares they have in the business. It is fair to say that the Stobart rumour mill has kicked into overdrive recently. Rarely does a day go past without CM receiving another unsubstantiated tip-off that the company is up to something. But at the end of February (the close of its financial year), it is likely to have transport and distribution operations generating an annual turnover in excess of £600m – when you combine Eddie Stobart and Autologic numbers.That is more than the combined turn-over of Turners (Soham); Malcolm Group; Fowler-Welch and ECM (Vehicle Delivery Service). So while the spotters' club has no reason to be worried, it's true that a very different Stobart Group could emerge this year.
bernie37: Stobart Group sells vehicle services division Last updated at 08:44, Tuesday, 26 February 2013 Stobart Group, the logistics giant founded in Cumbria, has sold its Stobart Vehicle Services subsidiary to Paragon Automotive. The division was part of the Autologic car transportation business, bought by Stobart last year for £12.6 million. It will now trade as Paragon Vehicle Services offering after-sales services such as new car preparation and customisation and the running of port operations. As part of the deal, Paragon takes on the former Autologic sites in Corby, Portbury and Doncaster, five manufacturer locations and 500 staff. Law firm Howes Percival acted for Paragon. The sale comes hot on the heels of a boardroom shake-up at Stobart Group and a recent profits warning. Rodney Baker-Bates was replaced as chairman last month by Avril Palmer-Baunack, previously chief executive of Autologic and latterly deputy chief executive at Stobart Group. Another non-executive director, David Beever, also departed. The Financial Times reported that the changes were at the behest of the fund-management group Invesco, which owns more than a third of Stobart's shares. Stobart's share price has fallen by a third from a peak of 140p last March.
pseudosphere: Yesterday I vented my frustration, regarding the plunging Stobart share price, by sending a strongly worded email to Stobart Investor Relations. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a rapid reply, which may be of interest to other private investors. I am now slightly more reassured regarding the acquisition of the remaining 50% of the Biomass business but still feel that the Westbury (moneypenny) property portfolio may prove to be a poisoned chalice. The email states that investors will have a vote in August on whether to acquire this portfolio, following an independent valuation by Knight Frank. However, in practice the private investor has little influence and the institutions will determine this outcome. If reporting in the press proves correct and the property company is carrying £90m of debt, with property valuations of only £70m, then I would be very reluctant to go down this route. It does appear to be an attempt to bail out directors because their activities in another business proved less sucessful than they had hoped! Here is the full correspondence so you can judge for yourselves: ---------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Mr Horey, I appreciate your concerns and will forward your email on. In the meantime, I hope you won't mind if I explain where the recent press coverage has been misleading in the hope that this will reassure you - although I accept it won't move the share price. The press comments about the valuation of the former Westbury portfolio, on which the Group has an option to acquire, are speculative. The portfolio is currently being valued by an independent third party (Knight Frank) but no valuation has been published yet. Should the Group decide to exercise the option to acquire the portfolio, the valuation, a detailed prospectus and all necessary documentation will be circulated to shareholders who will be canvassed for their vote on whether the acquisition should go ahead. The Group has until the end of August to exercise this option and this would happen completely independently of the current Placing and Open Offer schedule. The Biomass acquisition has been valued to take into account the significant, long term transport contracts that will be generated. It is not valued purely on the sales value of the biomass product itself (i.e the woodchip). Stobart Biomass is expected to generate £30m per annum of transport revenues for Stobart Group within the next couple of years. In addition, it should generate pre tax profits of £19.25m over 5 years through a transport contract for Eddie Stobart Ltd. Stobart Biomass is already handling over 500,000 tonnes per annum and there are new contracts being signed all the time. The really material volumes will start in 2013/14. I hope this helps. Kind regards Jessica Shepherd-Smith On 05/05/2011 17:06, "XXXX" wrote: Hi Is the open offer now likely to be withdrawn, given that over 14 months of growth in the share price has been wiped out as a result of this proposal? I am a very annoyed long-term shareholder who cannot believe the incompetence of the board in getting the company into this position. It has been stated that in the press that the property portfolio, now worth £70m but with debts of £90m is in negative equity! The biomass acquisition has possible long-term potential but to pay £21m for 50% of a business currently generating £4700 of profit in a 9 months period seems overly generous to me. The intention to inject £25m into this business with the help of third-party funding means more debt and/or liabilities/interest payments To have a listed company buy distressed assets from its own CEO and his brother in law seems peculiar at best and might possibly be regarded as incompetent. There is a probable conflict here between shareholder interests and those of the board. If the property portfolio was acquired for zero pounds, or Andrew Tinkler and William Stobart pay Stobart Group to take it off their hands, possibly by selling their own shareholdings to raise this capital, then perhaps this would be different. Should shareholders compensate Directors for failure in another business enterprise? If the open offer were withdrawn I assume that the share price would recover towards 150p. Is the placing of shares with institutional investors absolutely firm ie will they pay 155p if they can purchase in the normal market at 130p? Please forward this to the appropriate board members. A reply would be appreciated. Regards Rob
