illiswilgig: Might be a bid. But not necessarily. In my view Airea is still undervalued. It's a tiny and extremely illiquid share. Far too small for most insititutions to deal with. And there is little or no research available. Weakness in the share price after the results was likely due to small amounts of selling and not much buying. The results posted 3p for the first half. In the absence of research, no market expectations or knowledge of management expectations it's reasonable to assume 6p for the full year? In which case it was undervalued before and could be seen to be fair value at 60p But that ignores the growth in the first half, the new product launches, strongly rising international sales and continued cash generation. So perhaps 7p is more likely for full year? If so it's still way undervalued and any buying in quantity will pump up the share price. Just my view cheers
thirty fifty twenty: when the mgt took over the share price was c.10p, so I think they deserve to be given credit for their track record. I also have met and decided that the mgt are trustable and have done a good job. At the AGM they saw that the new product development would give them opportunities in Europe. But they can say what they want - none of us know how Brexit will impact trading, so personally I don't see this risk as specific to AIEA but part of my overall portfolio management. As I see it the bigger risk is a downturn in construction activity in the North of the UK. it is not a share for those that are very risk adverse, but am I happy with an investment in this company with its asset backing and good mgt - well that's obviously a yes from me but that may just be holder bias!
mesquida: Romboid, I too am a long term shareholder, back to the days of Sirdar, good size holding, not disclosable but probably more than our friend petebarnes has! I have watched the transformation of this Company under new management during the past few years, and frankly on the basis of what they have achieved during this period I would now reject any offer pitched at less than 80p. An offer at that level or above would have to be considered seriously though, representing as it would a substantial premium to the share price average during the past five years. If on the other hand Halstead walk away and the price subsequently drops, then I would have no hesitation in buying more, which is another way of saying "yes, Board of Directors, I trust you, and thanks for everything you have done here". The next ten days could prove to be very interesting indeed!
trigger blade: rhomboid, I wasn't looking at a chart when I said doubled in a few days, I just had a memory of it being 30p not long ago. You're clearly a long term shareholder, with an understanding of the business. My mild irritation is with instant experts like pete, who start throwing figures around with nothing to support them. I'm a small time, long term JHD shareholder and on that thread, he said the bid would need to be £1. I asked him how he'd arrived at that price and he disappeared. He's suggesting various prices on here, all currently lower than £1, as well as the ludicrous assertion that JHD need this bid to support their own share price. That's a share price that has multiplied many times in the last 30 years, as has turnover and profit. I'm constantly amazed at how JHD have become successful worldwide in a very mundane business area. The share price has dropped from its all time high, but I doubt JHD needs this bid for credibility reasons. JHD is a cautious company and I doubt they'll go all gung ho now Geoffrey Halstead's retired. Although it's a related business area, there doesn't appear on the surface to be any great synergy in terms of products and manufacturing. As a substantial buyer of raw materials, JHD might be able to squeeze some savings out of raw materials and as you said, some management cost saving too. The most obvious area of synergy is distribution, particularly overseas. JHD's distribution worldwide is strong, with a number of overseas subsidiaries against Burmatex with (I'm guessing), an Export Sales Manager, tasked with finding local distributors, whose main focus might not be on Burmatex products. Compare and contrast. The JHD website lists contact details in 77 countries. The Burmatex website says they sell in Europe, the Middle East and Far East and if you want more details, get in touch. I don't have the information, but I suspect that 30-35 years ago, JHD and AIEA (or its eventual constituent parts) were not that different in size (turnover and profit) and if JHD could transform AIEA the way it transformed its own business, that would be great for JHD shareholders and if AIEA shareholders invested the profit from a successful JHD bid, it would be great for them too! I suppose I'm assuming a cash bid, is there any possibility of a bid at least being partly in shares? I am confident that won't overpay (although I accept I don't know what that might mean). They picked the Teesside plant up for a song and I can't see them needing AIEA badly enough to get carried away with the price. We shall see. I'm going for a lie down, I haven't concentrated so much on one thing for a very long time :-)
rhomboid: It did ..but that was driven by me taking all the stock I could get after reading the results and getting my calculator out, in particular looking at the date the new machine was installed,new products were launched & what that implied about the rate of climb in profits 🤔as a result because the price moved more than 10% JHD had to declare their hand as they’d been mulling a bid. Either way we’ll soon see but at the current share price I’m still a buyer & I’m sure others are doing similar sums & getting the same answers
trigger blade: There looks to be a fair bit of wishful thinking and guessing going on here. pete's suggested any price up to £1 should be achievable and since he predicted the share price would get to 70p a few days ago, it's only dropped. I admire irenekent's optimism at the prospect of AIEA (market cap £26m, doubled since the rumour of an offer) eventually taking over JHD, one of the most consistent AIM performers over many years (market cap £830m, down from £1 billion last year). I'm assuming it was a tongue in cheek remark and the smiley fell off :-)
gripfit: I hope JHD don't over pay for this company, and use up a load of their cash, They have allways been keen to preserve it, and the current share price indicates that the mkt doesn't seem happy with the deal. We shall see. ;o)))
cockerhoop: My view (and others have disagreed with this interpretation) is: The #JHD RNS used the standard terms for offer discussions: This announcement is not an announcement of a firm intention to make an offer under Rule 2.7 of the Code (as defined above) and there can be no certainty that an offer will be made, nor as to the terms of any offer. Whilst the #AIEA RNS stated: This announcement is not an announcement of a firm intention to make an offer under Rule 2.7 of the Code (as defined above) and there can be no certainty that an offer will be made, nor as to the terms of any offer, including whether any offer would be at a significant premium to the current share price. Note the added sentence which I think is steering towards a lower value than some expect. If I had to guess I'd say 65-70p. BWTFDIK!!!
tiswas: Strange buying just the one though. With commission their average cost must be nearer £10.00! I can see that Halstead need to do something. Very pedestrian growth in recent years, high pe and peg, falling share price but excellent returns on capital, margin etc. AIEA say Burmatex is already highly profitable so how much room for Halstead to increase margins there? Or are they just seeing th opportunity to take out a competitor now that the carpet business is going. If Rhom's numbers are in the ballpark could we see them paying 15x 6p eps to give 90p and still earnings enhancing? Quoted 53/57 today, tempting to add a few more.
cottoner: RNS released tonight by JHD Airea plc Statement regarding share price movement James Halstead plc ("James Halstead") notes the recent movement in the share price of Airea plc ("Airea") and confirms that the Board of directors of James Halstead (the "Board") is at the very early stages of evaluating making an offer for Airea which could lead to an offer being made for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Airea (the "Possible Offer").
