Laura Ashley looks a great recovery play. I'm in balls-deep. If ALY isn't a 10 bagger in 2020 I'm done with trading"

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.

No I was correct, the last six weeks growth of 28% and profit surge of
22%, no other retailer like aly can come close to those figures.
If they had flagged that up in early year we could have seen a recovery.

The tea rooms have been bouncing with more hotels wanting to collaborate
fact told from aly.
New London store supposed to opening in March.
Urban outfitters selling out of aly clothes.
Clothes collection being sported by top lady celebrities.
and on, so just as we turn it around they pull the plug, why do they need
£15m, when sales are booming?

They should be horse draw and quartered, then again they might if
they do ot sort this out for the other 25% shareholders.

Yes agree, they have no argument if it was so bad
sell for 2.7p if not keep it going massive increase in sales,
so before it could be properly announced to send the share price
back to at least 5p they pull the rug, the government is helping
businesses especially those growing sales at 28% in a few weeks.

This needs highlighting I I will be doing it.

I bet they have all gone to Malaysia.

Around £30m and £6m for the hotel.

To pay down the debt and working capital.


Here is the reply to Flacks, quite astonishing really, the management
had either sort the funding out or support the company with their own
money. We were bouncing in 2015 just before the Singapore purchase
and all the private family matters.


26 February 2019


Response to Unsolicited Offer by Flacks Group LLC

In response to the unsolicited and highly opportunistic indicative offer for Laura Ashley Holdings plc ("Laura Ashley", the "Group") announced by Flacks Group LLC ("Flacks") on 25 February 2019 (the "Offer"), the Board of Laura Ashley (the "Board", "we") expresses its disappointment at the approach taken by Flacks, including its decision not to engage with the Board prior to the announcement.

The Board, having considered the Offer with its advisers, believes that the terms of the Offer substantially undervalue the Group and encourages all shareholders to take no action.

Flacks' Offer significantly undervalues Laura Ashley

We strongly believe that the Offer fails to reflect the value of the Laura Ashley brand and hence the fair value that shareholders deserve for their investment in the Group. We also note that Flacks have indicated that the price of 2.748 pence per Ordinary Share is final and will not be increased or decreased.

As expressed in our announcement dated 25 February 2019, the Board has complete confidence that the Group will be able to grow profitably and in a sustainable manner so as to create long-term value for our shareholders.

Andrew Khoo, Chairman of Laura Ashley, commented:

"Since assuming the role of Chairman recently, I would like to reiterate that I hold a long term view of the Group. Opportunistic and unsolicited offers that are speculative in nature, and playing to a short term market that creates unnecessary volatility to the share price, are not welcome. However, we will not be distracted from our focus on the business fundamentals as we continue to transform the Group into a true lifestyle brand."

What would be super here is if Urban Outfitters who we collaborate with
bought 10% of Mr Peng's stock. Then that would help the share price
higher so all win, UO, Mr Peng and the other shareholders.

Not wishing to call too soon, but looks very positive. Been watching ALY for years after a disastrous investment in ALY in the late 90s. Toyed with purchasing across the last 3 months but paid too little attention and just kept on my monitor. Saw the rise starting to build @2.2p and took a punt that the basics and valuation were too out of kilter. Got myself @900k at 2.5p and thought I hand overpaid having to pay 0.2p above prevailing. Surprised to see the momentum build so quickly, thought we would need positive news, but will only take a few points of margin improvement, which may simply come through exchange rate anyway, to have £10m of post tax this year. So with a decent macro wind and internal right decision making could easily be trading above 20p this year. Remember it was only a few short years ago ALY was declaring a 2.5p dividend. Puts today's price into context.Barry

Hi SrNot sure I follow your logic. Perhaps I have missed something. I am cautiously positive on Laura Ashley. I held stock many years ago in the late 90s and it was a disaster for me. However, the decline in price is, I believe, way overdone for a business that has @£250m of annual sales. Yes it is not making any profit, at least not last year, but if they can manage to eke out just a 5% net margin that would be £12m profit and a PE of 10 would be reasonable. This is unlike Debenhams and the like as it has no debt, therefore no debt financing eating into profits but more importantly no shark bankers driving prices and confidence down so as to pounce and steal the business.Of course we still need competent leadership who are both able to generate a turnaround in trading but also a common desire to have the share price higher for collective best outcome. Given the simple scenario I paint, a share price above 15p is entirely reasonable in 2020.

It`s up because there are buyers that recognize the potential and value in ALY. Nothing more nothing less I guess. This time of year is also one of the prime times for furnishing sales and general home-ware. So ALY should see a return to growth in this area also imo.

The share price has been depressed for far to long.Good British products that are becoming classics.

L2 looking very strong by comparison to that of recent months.
