But his holding SO FAR doesn't place him in a position similar to a debenture holder. I agree SIXH has had to resort to loan stock for obvious reasons. Rarely positive. I notice the CEO has also bought some more shares in the last few days. Haddeo must be now over 25% I think.

Perloff's tactics are to assist a company with its financing, but in such a manner that he places himself in a position similar to that of a debenture holder. Nothing wrong with that in principle if a company needs cash, but look at what happened recently to minority shareholders in Beale, the retailer. The 600 situation will become complicated, given that a group of fund managers are already loan stock holders.

Simon, it's a long time since I got "carried away" about anyone or anything. I don't understand why Perloff would be wanting to increase his stake here. Any sensible ideas?

There's certainly something weirdly wrong with a company worth less than 4 months turnover. I',m still waiting to see results from the PPIX investment - none so far for either sixh or ppix - other than the usual value destruction.

Spot on Simon: In his 40 years or so in the City, Perloff has yet to do anything for minorities, so his continued interest here is a bit of a worry. Worse still though, is the recent loan stock placing with institutions, one of which had only just struck a similar loan stock deal with peat merchants, William Sinclair, which was bust within weeks thereafter. 600 once had plenty of family jewels: now all sold, and still not enough left to pay even a token dividend.

Don't get carried away with AP being a shareholder he did nothing for EKT being a significant shareholder just watched it crash and worse still at Beale his brother took hold of the company for a pittance. Sales up profits down!

Yes, strange one for Perloff still to be targeting. However, he has had a stake since the company was known as The Six Hundred Group and owned properties in West London, hence the original attraction I suspect.

I also note that Andrew Perloff - the prperty asset based activist investor and CEO of Panther Securities - now owns 7% of the company.

Hi Pugugly, I think you have - understandably perhaps - over-simplified the pension situation. In absolute terms, the pension assets and liabllities are very large compared to the present market size of the company. On the IAS 19 basis - used overwhelmingly to calculate the pesnion position of listed comapanies, SIXH has 230m sterling assets and 196m sterling liablities. Hence, the funds are in surplus and the company is not currently, nor is it expected to have to make pension contributions. However, becasue of the large size of the various funds, it makes sense to calculate déficits on more pessmistic bases. On a technical provisions basis, the funds are very slightly in déficit compared to their large size. On a full buy-out basis, they are even more so. The latter is important, as the company is working towards a buyout of the pension funds, to eliminate future risk. (Imagine a situation, for example, where there were collapses of stockamrkets in the US, UK. Then the pension funds would swing into déficit on an IAS 19 basis. Moreover, there are still some liablity mitigation exercises to come which will further reduce implied future liabilities. So large pension funds like these require careful management, but not contributions of cash for the foreseeable future.

Not sure I understand your remark on pensions, it seems to be in surplus and returning money to shareholders - well salaried staff, certainly not shareholders!

Anyone still following ? Mr Market reacting badly to the interims - Pension defict still a mill stone PLUS of course debt - Another old UK engineering coy working for the benefit of the pensioners and not shareholders (imo)

This has being tipped by Simon Thompson of IC with a current target price of 24p, however this was before the results which were very good. Will be watching his next comments as he may well upgrade his view.

Yes, there I agree with you. At what price would the warrant holders buy in? You'd have to suppose a belief in a sustainable improvemnet in SIXh's financial performance.

Warrant holders enjoy the luxury of choosing to pay 20p only when profit has been assured.

Freebies? They have to pay 20p.

Solid institutional support for the acquisition is a plus. The freebies of warrants and covertibles at 20p may prove a cap in due course.

Having watched this company for a good time now have decided to give it a punt I think could be quiet exciting

Not looked at these for a while but popped up today on drop. Can anyone shed any light on why they capitalise some development expenses.

The only explanation I can think of for the poor reception of these results is that those with longish memories will remember the disposal of a property for book value - in that case to connected persons. Those investors may have taken the hint. I do wonder when the property mentioned here as disposed of at or about book value was last valued and to whom it was sold. The price quoted is pretty damn poor for a property asset in this day and age - unless it is in some God-forsaken part of the world. I guess we will never know.
