This is interesting, from 4th April 2024:


Between the February General Meeting and today's General Meeting two institutional Shareholders, who were supportive of the Company's managed wind-down, and who had voted in favour of adopting that investment policy, sold their holdings to Milkwood, an investor opposed to the managed wind-down, and hence to the B Share Scheme.

The Board has been made aware that Milkwood is seeking to secure the future management of the Company's portfolio for itself. Since the February General Meeting, Milkwood has built up an approximately 28 per cent. shareholding in the Company which allowed it to block the implementation of the proposed B Share Scheme. This shareholding compromises the position of the Company's other Shareholders who had voted in favour of the managed wind-down, but to whom Milkwood has not offered a cash exit. As a proportion of votes cast at today's General Meeting (excluding Milkwood's acquired stake), the votes in favour of returning capital through the B Share Scheme amounted to 99.72 per cent. This indicates that there remains a significant body of Shareholders who still wish the Company to return cash to them in accordance with the Company's investment policy. The Board believes that it has a duty to find a way to permit those Shareholders to exit for cash and to invest that cash as they wish.

XPP's up 7% today.

I think it's worth comparing VLX's chart against TSLA's chart. VLX seems to be following that far too closely over the past 2-3 years.

It seems VLX's share price needs to get its own life and break away from pegging TSLA's.

Anybody got any idea when Downing are done? Uncertainty is the last thing any share price needs.

We need a good TU pronto to get the share price back on track.

Frustrating we are down here, after the share price tried so many times to break out above 320p.

Correct but too simplistic. VLX year end is 31 March so a few weeks to go. You can manage your shape at year end by recognising costs (or not) and booking revenues (or not) so management sit down and decide how they want the yearend shape to look versus 2024 initial outlook. IR will get involved, LTIPs will be looked at etc. its certainly priced for a warning or a cautious outlook statement. A few on here have flagged peers results and also volex talked about destocking so the stock price makes sense until we get clarity IMO. I will certainly double down on any short term headwinds that cause a price correction.

IgoeWhy are you reluctant to post up their response?, you are simply repeating what they said at the interims in November. Which is clearly all they said in their response to you.As shaker has posted, they aren't going to give out anything sensitive or why the share price has been weak.
Posted at 06/3/2024 09:02 by disc0dave46
You've posted elsewhere:"Been intouch with the VLX management. Alot of folks panicking over destocking issues that some companies have announced like XPP, have recently experienced, and now folks are panicking that it could happen to VLX. Instead of panicking all they have to do is get intouch with the company and will confirm in a carefully worded email they aren't any issues".Can you post up their actual response, thanks.

IgoeSo they commented that the share price action has nothing to do with customer destocking and business performance!. Is that the gist of their response to you?.

According to today's RNS from DSM, as at 29 Feb, they had total assets of £30.44m, of which 8.35% was VLX (i.e. £2.5m worth - or just under 900k shares), so only a small holding left. As at 31 January, they had just under £3m worth of VLX, although the share price then was 317-ish, so around 940k shares. If my reading is correct, then they may not have been that much of a seller during February - 50k shares or so?

Great find! Share price weak due to cyber attack news? Events in Middle East, or both?Personally think cyber news has meant oversold here. Always seems to be something causing a drag on share prices currently!

ali - VLX share price went up on no news... and when there was some good news, it did nothing (went down a bit).

Sooooooo, it seems some people knew the good news beforehand and bought. Then, when the good news was actually released (yesterday), the folk who knew already, sold and made some quick money.

That's the reasoning...

For me, I'm just pleased my biggest holding is totally on the right track.

How quickly after a strong trading update do we revert to discussing share price movements!

The trading update gave a good steer as to how the near term future for Volex is shaping up - the company is targeting markets with strong structural growth, the growth that the company is seeing is ahead of the underlying market (the company is gaining market share) and VLX is expanding its capabilities and widening its product offering thereby increasing wallet share with existing customers as well as attracting new ones.

My investment philosophy has been to concentrate on the business not the share price. Get the business right then the share price will sort itself out.
