Surely this deserves an uplift in the BDS price, as 62% owner of Willi foods.G. WILLI-FOOD INTERNATIONAL REPORTS THE RESULTS OF FIRSTQUARTER 2020 WHICH SHOW THE HIGHEST EVER QUARTERLY SALES,GROSS PROFIT AND OPRATING INCOME.YAVNE, Israel – May 21, 2020 - G. Willi-Food International Ltd. (NASDAQ: WILC) (the "Company" or "Willi-Food"), a global company that specializes in the development, marketing and international distribution of kosher foods, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.First Quarter Fiscal Year 2020•Sales increased by 32.0% year-over-year to NIS 129.1 million (US$ 36.2 million).•Gross profit increased by 37.5% year-over-year to NIS 41.5 million (US$ 11.6 million).•Operating profit increased by 50.9% year-over-year to NIS 19.0 million (US$ 5.3 million).•Net profit decreased by 92.5% year-over-year to NIS 1.2 million (US$ 0.3 million).•Cash and securities balance of NIS 242.6 million (US$ 68.1 million) as of March 31, 2020.•Earnings per share of NIS 0.09 (US$ 0.03).Management CommentZwi Williger & Joseph Williger, Co-Chairmen of Willi-Food, commented: "Since a strain of coronavirus surfaced in China at the end of 2019 and reached many other countries worldwide, including Israel, there has been a substantial increase in demand for the Company's products, especially in the retail market. The Company acted to maintain its operational ability and to ensure that sufficient levels of inventory were available in order to meet demand during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the first quarter 2020 financial results show the Company's highest ever sales, gross profit and operating profit. We intend to continue to maintain sufficient inventory levels and work to further strengthen the Company's supply chain, and product portpolio to meet its future demand."According to retail data analytics provided by StoreNext Ltd1, the Company recorded a higher growth rate in the last quarter for "sale out" sales (in other words, sales to the final consumer) than any other Israeli food and beverage company, growing 45.5% compared to the average of such companies, which increased by 15.4%.1 StoreNext Ltd. has a direct connection to the cash register systems of over 2,200 points of sales, providing information regarding 80% of real time sales data in Israel.First Quarter Fiscal 2020 SummarySales for the first quarter of 2020 increased by 32.0% to NIS 129.1 million (US$ 36.2 million) from NIS 97.8 million (US$ 27.4 million) recorded in the first quarter of 2019. Sales increased primarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to an increase in demand for the Company's products, primarily in the retail chains.Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 increased by 37.5% to NIS 41.5 million (US$ 11.6 million) compared to NIS 30.2 million (US$ 8.5 million) recorded in the first quarter of 2019. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to the increase in sales, a gross margin increase resulting from the Company's strategy of selling a favorable mix of products which generate a higher gross margin and depreciation of the Euro and USD exchange rates against the NIS.Selling expenses increased by 33.3% to NIS 16.6 million (US$ 4.7 million) compared to NIS 12.5 million (US$ million 3.5) in the first quarter of 2019. The increase in selling expenses was primarily due to an increase of payroll expenses in the sales department, an increase of freight to customers' expenses to support sales growth and an increase in advertising expenses of existing and new products.General and administrative expenses increased by 14.8% to NIS 5.9 million (US$ 1.7 million) compared to NIS 5.1 million (US$ million 1.4) in the first quarter of 2019. The increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to increases in payroll expenses.As a result, operating profit for the first quarter of 2020 increased by 50.9% to NIS 19.0 million (US$ 5.3 million) compared to NIS 12.6 million (US$ 3.5 million) in the first quarter of 2019.Finance expenses, net totaled NIS 17.4 million (USD$ 4.9 million) compared to Finance income, net of NIS 7.2 million (US$ 2.1 million) in the first quarter of 2019. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, capital markets recorded sharp declines and, as a result, the Company suffered a decline in its portfolio of securities which totaled NIS 18.7 million since the beginning of the year. Capital markets have recovered somewhat since March 31, 2020 and as a result the Company's loss has been reduced to approximately NIS 8.9 million (USD$ 2.5 million) since the beginning of the year.Willi-Food's income before taxes for the first quarter of 2020 was NIS 1.6 million (US$ 0.4 million) compared to income before taxes of NIS 19.8 million (US$ 5.6 million) in the first quarter of 2019.Willi-Food's net profit in the first quarter of 2020 was NIS 1.2 million (US$ 0.3 million), or NIS 0.09 (US$ 0.03) per share, compared to NIS 15.8 million (US$ 4.4 million), or NIS 1.19 (US$ 0.33) per share, recorded in the first quarter of 2019.Willi-Food ended the first quarter of 2020 with NIS 242.6 million (US$ 68.0 million) in cash and securities. Net cash from operating activities for the first quarter of 2020 was NIS 8.0 million (US$ 2.2 million). Willi-Food's shareholders' equity at the end of March 2020 was NIS 492.5 million (US$ 138.1 million).NOTE A: NIS to US$ exchange rate used for convenience onlyThe convenience translation of New Israeli Shekels (NIS) into U.S. dollars was made at the rate of exchange prevailing on March 31, 2020, with U.S. $1.00 equal to NIS 3.565 The translation was made solely for the convenience of the reader.NOTE B: IFRSThe Company's consolidated financial results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020 are presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").

A very strange one indeed, all because of a 200 share uncrossed trade worth £44! Correct me if I am wrong (and I realise the share price is so low because of all the previous going ons at BSD) but I calculate the Willi Foods stake at 90p per share. Or am I missing something?

I still have virtually worthless shares in this from when I put £3k in when it was called Geo Interactive Media. It was one of those hyper-overvalued tech firms claiming it was going to be the main provider of video streaming software to mobile phone companies. I think it just ended up as technology that wasn't taken up by the big companies-I'm not aware there was any fraud going on. Although we have a huge amount of fraud in the UK - e.g. Goals Soccer Centres, and most of the mining exploration companies are Ponzi schemes.

Here is the actual statement. http://bsd-c.com/doc/investors/reports/HY2019.pdf True jimboyce the figures are encouraging, but Note 5 at the end of the accounts is very illuminating. It shows just how many question marks hang over the company's financial position regarding claims and counterclaims where the figures are huge (relative to the company's balance sheet). A quick reading implies these could go on for years with the outcome uncertain.

Willi food market cap = 82m sterling. So 62% owned by BDS is 51m. Ignore everything else including at least 20m in cash at BDS. BDS market cap 20m sterling. Seriously undervalued.
