Look at the 2016 report the company was booming just needed to move like Cath Kidston and all would have continued to be good. Profits £23.5m Lfl up 4%, £5m cash and a 2p dividend. Then what happened in 2015 that changed. dyor

There are couple of lessons from this. Don't invest in a company with one majority shareholder. The owner may act in their own interest against the interest of other shareholders, or their own vanity may drive the company into the ground because they don't need to listen to others. A wider collection of shareholders can force a company to focus on recovery. Also a collection of shareholders would have given a higher rating and possibility for a takeover.

It isn’t just ALY today, there is Cineworld and Vue and I’m sure there will be others over the coming days also.

The govt shouldn't be supporting companies like ALY People should also not be investing in basket cases like ALY Feb and Mar will be slow months - 24% year on year, with poor comparatives, is meaningless. The clue was the share price.

Worth a try - copied the pwc guys as well. Dear Sir, Hours before the Chancellor announced a variety of financial support measures to protect jobs under threat due to the Coronavirus epidemic, the Malaysian owners/board of Laura Ashley announced the almost certain loss of 2,700 jobs citing the Coronavirus and a lack of available finance. There seems to me there is a massive disconnect here and the employees of this company should, at the very least, expect that Robert Lewis and Zelf Hussain, of Price Waterhouse Coopers, who have been called in by Laura Ashley, should take account of the availability of your generous measures and encourage the current board to reconsider their intention to put the company into administration and make every attempt to keep redundancy at bay for their loyal workforce until the future is clearer. rob.lewis@uk.pwc.com zelf.hussain@uk.pwc.com

Then this a few hours later the next day. ================= For the seven weeks up to 13(th) March, trading for the Laura Ashley business improved by 24% year-on-year and the directors were encouraged by this strong performance. However, the COVID-19 outbreak has had an immediate and significant impact on trading, and ongoing developments indicate that this will be a sustained national situation.

This was Monday, if they had held as they state they have with the INTENTION, they could have some of the £350bn of free cash loan. ======================================== During the six weeks to 7 March 2020, total sales were 27.7% ahead of the equivalent period in 2019 and gross profit was 22.2% up on the equivalent period, ahead of management expectations. Whilst the Company has not yet seen a significant financial impact due to COVID-19, the Company believes that it has the potential to negatively influence future trading as a result of reduced footfall and continues to monitor the situation closely. Financing update The Company is in advanced discussions with a third-party lender to provide facilities of up to an additional GBP15 million to meet the Group's working capital requirements. This process is being managed by Arrowpoint Advisory and the debt funding will need to be in place by no later than the end of March 2020. If the Group is unable to secure commitment for the requisite level of funding by the end of March to satisfy its ongoing working capital requirements and turnaround plan, then the Company will need to consider all appropriate options.

This really needs to be investigated as one may ask whether it has acted legally. A company should act in the best interest of all shareholders, but we all, and I guess politicians have other things to worry about.

L Yes the MP and Chancellor have stated £400bn and £350bn of free cash for business, for goods sake sort this out to save shareholders and jobs. It does seem strange flat growth for the first seven weeks then 28% in the next six and we are only 11 weeks in so the good figures were already showing in the overlapping weeks when they said we were flat. Come on all help out. email CEU.enquiries@hmtreasury.gov.uk

just seen this on https://www.egi.co.uk/news/laura-ashley-seeks-more-cash/17/03/2020 bit more detail if true - maybe ongoing Download Laura Ashley has said that it will need additional funding to stay afloat, a month after saying it had sufficient funds. The clothing and furnishing retailer needs to secure the funding by the end of March for its turnaround plan. Chief shareholder Mui Asia is actively considering an additional £10m credit facility, while another lender is being tapped for £15m. Shares in the retail firm are now worth less than 1p.

U They stated profit growth of 22%. I have not started yet this needs sorting one way or another.

Just because ALY are selling lots of clothes doesn’t mean they are making a profit on those sales, and it’s possible celebrities are being given the dresses for free or/and being paid to wear them. SRP I admire your resolve but I think your energy is misdirected.

B Agree please write to the chancellor and have your say we need to get this wrong doing noticed asap. On Monday rns no c19 impact a few hours later an rns stating there is. As soon as they heard down the grapevine that funding is going to be free for business they pull this stunt. They need sorting asap.

Yes, free loans and we need a loan so they pull quickly due to c19, in their statement on Monday they said they had seen any effect of c19, a few hours later intend to appoint, really. They need jail.
