I don't think Ted Baker will be too impressed-they hold 15% of ACT from memory.

May have to take a loss .... if the market will take any stock. The real worry is if they are stuffed full of summer clothes which then has to be marked down and sold off cheap. They do not have the financial clout to ride through a big downtrend. Not good.

There is no way to dress this up as positive really. The wholesaling is good of course but retailing sucks at the moment. Actually I have some small experience of this as I own a small shop as a sideline business and it's tough out there! Difficult to know what to do as the shares will be significantly marked down in the morning of course and selling will be pretty much impossible. Too illiquid. I will suffer a fair loss but nothing that will hurt too much....probably between 1-2000 pounds. Ouch... Andy

For those that are having trouble getting the news from this pitiful service on ADVFN lately, here it is..... Actif Group PLC - Trading Update [DLDTGFP] RNS Number:7572A Actif Group PLC 12 July 2004 Actif Group plc Trading update At the time of the interim results announced by the Company in March this year, the Chairman reported that good progress had been made towards increasing sales and margins of Elle merchandise across both the wholesale and retail distribution channels. However he also stated that the Group was finding post-January trading in its retail formats to be unpredictable and took a cautious view about the short term outlook for Elle retail. Since then retail trading conditions in Elle prime stores and concessions have deteriorated sharply resulting in total retail sales for the 23 weeks since 31 January 2004 being 14% below last year, which represents a like for like decline of 18%. This is attributed to difficult market conditions, where the cool, dull weather since Easter contrasts sharply with the prolonged spell of hot, sunny weather enjoyed last year. This is a similar situation to that being experienced by other High Street clothing retailers, but has been exacerbated by a poor performance of High Summer ranges, especially within the Tops category, which accounts for approximately 50% of the retail sales mix. This sales shortfall will have an adverse impact on profitability, and the Actif Group Board now anticipates that the outcome for the year to 31 July 2004 will be significantly below market expectations, coming in at around the break-even level. The Group continues to generate good cashflows and net debt at the end of the year is anticipated to be in line with last year at around £1.1m, following capital expenditure of £0.7m. Sales within the wholesale business have remained strong, building on the growth seen in the first half, with full year sales increasing by 35% on last year. Mark Evans, Chief Executive of Actif Group comments: "This is a disappointing set back to the profit recovery of the Group, particularly given the improvement in the wholesale division. The weakness in our retail summer ranges has been compounded by more challenging market conditions. The necessary actions have been taken to address the product weaknesses highlighted in the Spring / Summer season and the results of these actions are evident in the strength of Autumn / Winter 2004 wholesale sales. We remain confident in the Elle brand appeal in the UK market and in our future development."

No but I bought some at 7p expecting a good rally up to results. At 2.5 million cap (i.e. around 4p) they will look ok but buying losing stocks is not my style. Shame, coz up till 5 I was having a flying day too.

Thanks tonyx James2, it was one of the reasons I didn't buy a couple of weeks ago. As it's a front for the brand it should be up to date at all times so I was interested to see how quick they would fix it. As you emaled then I guess you get the brownie points :-) but I hope they remember to check it more in the future. I know they don't sell direct online but it would be a good to see a dedicated "Elle" website showing a few more products and styles, also the list of online sites should have through links to the selling sites, may as well try and help with the sales where possible. It's probably the cheapest form of advertising available but it does need to be maintained to look fresh. I'm in the website/marketing/fashion game and there is a lot of money to be made if they get it right. From my point of view Elle has a nice brand line so it's worth a small punt to see how they run with it. If they have turned the corner then it could be a good time to get in before a good rise but 'aint that always the hard bit to guess ?!!
