A consolidation issue or stock split is urgently needed here as the high dealing costs are putting off potential Buyers and having an negative effect on the Company's share price. The cost of the spread is currently 23%(calculated by offer price less bid price divided by offer price-3.25-2.50/3.25 x100.If the Company could cancel its 66mln shares and replace them with 6.6mln new shares then I would estimate the spread and dealing costs to halve.Furthermore I believe that(for the same reason) it is receiving less coverage/exposure from the Press than would othewise be the case-I can't ever remember a "Value" Share being tipped whose share price was less than 10p. It's true that a consolidation issue would just be a paper exercise but it would attract renewed interest in this Company and its products from Stock Market Investors who,I think it's fair to say that, generally, have comparatively high rates of disposable Income.IMHO a CI would be cost effective and money well spent Regards

wal footrot, "i would think the losses and outlook would have a pretty decent part to play in the ratio you mention". No disagreement there, but the losses are not massive in the context of the turnover, and the company already seems to be taking appropriate action to respond to the poor outlook. If and when the market turns, we have a potential multi-bagger (market cap = turnover would not be ambitious for a successful retailer). At the moment, I think the scale of the upside looks good value against the scale of the downside. (If ACT succeeds, you gain 5x plus your investment, if it fails, you lose the lot). The Gylenhammar involvement also brings the potential for some short term trading gains, if investors follow him in in any volume. In summary, it's a gamble but, to me at least, the odds look increasingly attractive.

tends to asset strip rather than recover. check out the price action on his investments before you buy here. also owns MPL fyi. Mark, i would think the losses and outlook would have a pretty decent part to play in the ratio you mention.

Just typed his name into a search engine, quite a bit of info about him around the internet. Seems to pick up small, undervalued companies and either helps them on the road to recovery or asset strips them. Would prefer the former here.

I topped up this morning on the back of this news. The ratio of market cap to turnover demonstrates the huge potential here. Having a competent activist investor can only help with the delivery of that potential.

23Michaeljc - 14 Sep'05 - 09:52 - 35 of 38 Where did you get info posted about Peter Gyllenhammer , very interesting, wonder where Peter has spotted the value or are we missing something. Interesing to know who he acquired shares from, looks like a institutional investor Management have huffed and puffed but so far failed to deliver shareholder value so its not surprising this company is appearing on certain people radar screens.

This guy has taken a position in the company. Could be good news. Peter Gyllenhammar Swedish activist investor, Peter Gyllenhammar, specialises in companies trading at substantial discounts to net asset value or in need of restructuring, often through his investment vehicles, Erudite, Förvaltnings AB and Silverslaggen. He often seeks board representation and works closely with management. Gyllenhammar has a background as an analyst and corporate finance advisor to several major Swedish corporations. He has interests in a number of UK public companies, and is chairman of British Mohair Holdings, and a director of Browallia International. Current significant holdings include Densitron Technologies, European Colour, The Jarvis Porter Group, Lonrho Africa and The Sherwood Group.

This has been a dead duck since I bought a small number at the float years ago. Unfortunately I went to sleep in 2003, otherwise would have sold then at 10p. Dont' know why anyone would take it over in the current climate. If I was a predator, I'd wait till its turned the corner, but still out of favour with investors and still cheap and then pounce before the share price rises.

adds divisional detail) LONDON (AFX) - Actif Group PLC said that with challenging market conditions continuing, it now anticipates full year profits this year to only be broadly similar to last year. In a statement alongside first half figures, the group said there is growing evidence of a major change in demand from consumers and wholesale buyers since the beginning of March. In retail, this is reflected in a 4 pct decrease in total retail sales for the first 11 weeks of the second half to April 16, with like for like sales 1.5 pct down. In wholesale, customer repeat orders for Spring / Summer 2005 are below expectations, whilst early indications are of a cautious approach amongst buyers in placing Autumn / Winter 2005 orders, the group added. Actif's first half figures also demonstrated the tough market conditions with pretax profit falling 9.8 pct to 248,000 stg from 275,000 stg. Turnover for the group was up 5 pct to 14.8 mln stg. Actif also managed to reduce its net debt in the period by 54 pct to 0.6 mln stg. At ELLE Retail, sales in the period amounted to 8.1 mln stg, down slightly from 8.6 mln a year earlier and accounting for 54 pct of total group turnover. Retail gross margins at ELLE increased by 1.6 pct to 64.8 pct. First half retail sales to end January in total were 1 pct down on a like for like basis and down by 5.8 pct on a total basis following the rationalisation of the store portfolio last year. Actif said an encouraging sign within the retail business was that prime stores were up 7 pct on a like for like basis across the same period, providing evidence that the actions taken to improve the product offer are having a positive impact on retail performance. Overall wholesale sales in the first half amounted to 6.8 mln stg, up from 5.6 mln, reflecting an underlying increase of 14 pct of Elle sales. newsdesk@afxnews.com slm/ COPYRIGHT Copyright AFX News Limited 2005.
