More good mood music with Grant Thornton being the auditors to Sports Direct.

Woozle1, looking back at my posts I am repeating myself! It happens with age. I always like to ask the negatives on stocks anyone is buying. I can real out the positives here however you might have a negative I have not factored in.

Woozle1, it was in certificate form so I do not pay for a few days. It was done 'by appointment'. This is why you cannot use an on line 'cheapy' broker to buy this sort of stock. Get your broker to phone the market makers.

I bought back in here recently too. At this price it looks like a low risk/high reward type punt with little downside thanks to the balance sheet and the potential of 100% gain if the appeal is unsuccessful and hopefully less than a year to wait to find out.

rjmaham, I did notice in the last statement from the company, the appeal is due to be heard at the Court of Appeal in January 2020. It usually takes circa eight weeks to get a 'hand down'after such a hearing. Then I guess we will know on which narrow ground or grounds G.T. will try and appeal to the Supreme Court. I really do not think there will be much clarity for at least nine months and potentially longer. I did buy a few more this week. I hear they are coming around to put the white jacket on me shortly and escort me off to the 'funny farm'!

Yes, more chaos at GT - less likely to go further if they lose their appeal.

Grant Thornton put in to special measures by audit regulator. More good 'mood music'.

Not sure - you work it out by putting in (say) 5k and see if you can get filled on that, then go up to 10... Keep doing it... Got a feeling the share price will be up again tomorrow.....

Woozie1, do you have a broker that can call the market maker? They can be bought by appointment. This is how I have managed to buy a few.

someone probably paid up to get shares. I've had a daily bid for 10k shares at 300p and yet to get hit. w1

flyfisher, I guess they have tax losses to cover although I wonder if these were wiped out through the scheme of arrangement. I will look at their accounts.

In regard to the transfer of emplyees, for anyboy also interested: "With effect from this week [the announcement was released on December] the Company has transferred the Emirati employees, who carried out the day to day operations..."

Thank you for sharing your analysis, rjmahan, its clear you have researched this company thoroughly. I agree that any impairment of AR is unlikely given who the customer and payor is. My liquidation cost is probably in the high range, but I prefer to err on the safe side - sometimes its management severance payments, sometimes something else, but past experience has taught me to prepare for unpleasant "surprises". I didnt know about most employees having been transferred. I havent found that information in the AR, I will try in the press releases. This a point I really would like to clarify, as I understand that the company is not going to keep its employees just sitting in the office, but I also understood from the AR that the company was searching for new customers, therefore part of the personnel must still be with the company, otherwise, how could it execute any new contract? Somebody just mentioned the possibility of the company just buying some other business at a price that would bring immediate value to shareholders in an order of several multiples (ex an immediate x3 in value). I wonder what you think about that. The way I see it, if management knew about a business they could buy at a fraction of its value, they wouldnt wait for anything, they would just go for it (its some of the current owners line of business, at the end). Anyway, thanks everybody for all the great insights.

rjmahan, I an sure somewhere there will be the judgement in respect of the right to appeal to the Court of Appeal. This will set out the points that they (the Court of Appeal) will look at over again as leave to appeal was only allowed on certain issues. I rate the Judge very highly who handed down the original judgement. I did have a read of a few overviews of the appeal decision and have got through reading 10% of the decision myself. The law is a funny thing, sometimes you just never get justice although I hope in this case Grant Thornton swing (although it will be mostly an insurance company paying I guess).

On impairment - nothing impaired 2016/17/18. Expect same for 2019.

We disagree on this. I dont put in 2m of AR never received - I think this is unlikely. I dont have a 4m liquidation cost - to me this seems much too high for what this is. Remember most staff have transferred. You also miss interest on judgement and costs accruing I get value of judgement at £33.4 £4.993m liabilities My figures £34.963 Assets +£22.4 Judgement Won +£6 Interest Won +£5 Costs Won +1.3-2.6 Interest while waiting 6m-1yr appeal -2 wind up costs =£62.7m or £5.13 or 74% upside If you say £6 wind-up costs you get to c£4.90 and 63% upside Judgement is halved - you get to c£3.90 and 30% upside Judgement is cancelled - likely £2 a share and 35% loss. I had a look through court of appeals judgements and roughly in 2/3rds of cases original judgment is upheld. In c 1/3rd amendments are usually legal/administrative they don't often overturn entirely. I read the whole judgement - it wasn't a fun few days. I don't think the judge is flying a kite - though I could be wrong. We don't agree on figures but even on yours if you say its 66/33 probabilities gives 13% expected upside. Ambiguity around current business isn't great but its been like that for a while and has always done OK - but is coming to an end. These shareholders aren't giving anyone a job out of the goodness of their hearts.

I agree that the downside is 30-40% but the cash will likely be used to buy something that is more valuable than the cash and the upside is multiples from here. This has been a real dog for Mills and buying something at a decent price or reversing a private company into what will likely become a cash shell is a good outcome. Down 30-40% or up multiples that looks like decent odds to me. w1
