Try being a little less selective then you might have a little more credibility .... "Our full year outlook for the group is unchanged with progress expected in adjusted operating profit and adjusted earnings per share. Strong profit performances this year from Primark, Grocery, Agriculture and Ingredients are expected to more than offset the adverse effect of lower EU sugar prices. As previously explained, net interest expense will be lower than last year, following favourable interest rate movements affecting non-sterling denominated borrowings in Southern Africa, and the underlying tax rate will benefit from the reduction in the US federal corporate tax rate."

Paul & John are incredibly close - Paul will be gutted however £1.5m per year salary talks I believe that not only was John a driving force in Primark with huge influence - I'm sure he will now start to cherry-pick key people to join him on his new venture? John was the only original board member left with Paul, who has 'gone through' 3 x finance directors 2 x PC directors & 2 x sales directors in the past 4 years The foundations of the business were built on a 'gang of four' who ran & grew the business for years - times have changed! Boohoo sell similar to Primark so maybe John didn't have the confidence in a potential online offer from Primark? Or has Primark peaked?

Agree that isn't good news It isn't the CEO it's the COO Or is the CEO going as well?

COO, Marchant is the CEO. Still a loss and it may lend some validity to Gibb's posts.

Gibbs, what did you make of the Primark l4l numbers?. My concern on Primark (as previously mentioned) is will increasing online buying trends ultimately impact. Physical stores will remain popular far in to the foreseeable, but could increasing online buying trends begin to clip Primark growth?. That's the only real downside I see, outside the usual economic cycle, Brexit etc. The cyclical nature of sugar etc is a non issue longer term.

If Glaxo is selling Horlicks India for more than £3 billion what is Ovaltine worth I am thinking, no idea myself but will buy a few more as the sum of the parts add up to much more than the share price is today.

Good afternoon all. It does make me smile when I read about Primark needing to have an on-line presence. With three daughters (two with children) Primark is one of their stores of choice. They go in looking for a particular item that they need and normally come out with bag fulls of other items! That would never happen on-line and as has been mentioned previously if it did then the bulk of items might be returned.

The sugar business will always be variable, always has been but it will recover again along with profits. These so called experts who want to split the business up should go and do one. Perfect opportunity for long term holders to take advantage of market swings and add to their position in a superbly run business.

“Investors may be getting worried about the ongoing ability of Associated British Foods’ Primark business to get the rest of the company out of trouble,” said AJ Bell’s Charlie Musson. “It may be asking too much for this part of the business to always come to the rescue, given the pressures on traditional retail.” Primark added 15 new stores during the year taking its total stores estate to 360. It will continue to add more space in Germany, France, Spain and Britain. HTTPS://www.standard.co.uk/business/primark-bucks-the-high-street-trend-as-sales-rise-a3931746.html

Lots of noise about today as you'd imagine - an article I just picked up Major shareholder unmoved The big issue in this particular case is that almost 60% of ABF’s shares are held by chief executive George Weston and his family. That means the Westons need to be on board with any proposed changes and, so far at least, they have shown little interest in breaking the status quo. If the family opts to maintain things as they are, Beauchamp is convinced that Primark, along with ABF shareholders, will continue to be held back by the ailing sugar business. “The problem for Associated British Foods is that it is a perfectly good clothing retailer for the mass market but until either the sugar market turns around or ABF bites the bullet and gets rid of it the shares will be serial underperformers.R21; ABF shares dropped more than 4% at the opening bell on Monday, although they have recovered some of those losses as the day has worn on and are down 1% to 2,249p in early afternoon trading.

It's a better share price reaction than I feared on seeing the l4l Primark drop, market giving the benefit of doubt as a result of the heatwave, maintenance of guidance a positive.

The last thing Primark want to do is go on line. It's the reason most of the retailers are struggling, being encouraged into it to be all "modern" especially the supermarkets who lose a fortune on home delivery. It's just a giant con being there for fat, idle, younger customers who can't be bothered to get off their backsides and go to the store. Look at successful retailers like Aldi, Lidl and our own Primark where the shops are bursting. Please don't let Primark get drawn into the malaise or we really will see sales eroded as Queen Gibbs says. Visit store buy six items, go on line order six items send five back. How can that be as profitable? Stay off line Primark.
