As I have stated before, you need the shop because a lot of people forget or need things last minute, it happens all the time...They should probably charge a premium for saving a lot of relationships...

Its the same with all the "Adjusted" BS we get fed these days We made a profit ! .... If you ignore everything we lost money on ! Everything that we lost money on is.... exceptional..... again this year , as last and the one before. I am sick of reading the stupid excuses. How about - the previous regimes direction for the company was flawed. We should have beefed up the internet offering instead of opening shops and we would not be in this mess. We apologise to shareholders - have sacked those responsible - without a payoff - and will be taking massive pay cuts to reflect that we have given shareholders a 100% pay cut and smashed their investment to boot. But of course that is fantasy.....

just reflection of the CARD performance - is it not? of course you can contribute to my CARD uderstanding (and others possibly) - why they did not write of, amortize intangibles, what is their accounting policy regarding it, etc how long does it take to get new CEO - what is reasonable use of derivatives by the Co - is it sensible and why Why having any debt at ??? % is reasonable and be part of the strategy

What really annoys me about these results, was the presentation. Second line of what you expect to be the financials is :- Stores (UK & Ireland) like-for-like revenue (i) (ii) -4.4% 1.2% Now I know there are the (i) and (ii) but then you have to go and look up just what they are supposed to mean, meanwhile you then have to go down , what 20-30 pages before you reach the "REAL" number "Stores (UK & Ireland) 85.3 187.0 (54.4%) " -54.4% so the true sales number was awful. It used to be that the real figures were presented , with an adjusted figure as the explanation, Now there is a BS figure and you have to search for the real one. Its ALL spin. Sales were a disaster no amount of spin changes that - but these days many companies take investors for mugs publish the BS on the basis that some or is it most , investors cannot be bothered to read through and find the real numbers.....

as a result net debt (excluding lease liabilities)was broadly unchanged over the period and £26.4m lower than HY20... ?????? edit got confused with their terminology - they reported HY21 results - wtf ??? back to the future

fenners The LFL sales figures just discount closed store weeks as if they happened in the previous period. 4.4% lower revenue during a pandemic isn't as bad considering. I don't think it is unreasonable to discount closed store periods because closing stores on such magnitude was a one-off event - unlikely (and hopefully) not to be repeated - outside of the directors' control. If stores remain open then the LFL figures correctly give you an idea of performance whereas not discounting closed stores wouldn't.

I know the job reported accounts are supposed to do. They are supposed to clearly explain a company's financial position. NOT mislead.

How can they think on any level that quoting Like for Like stores sales down 4.4% is giving a clearer picture of results ? Stretching the BS to new levels ! The "REAL" stores result was.... Stores (UK & Ireland) £m 85.3 187.0 (54.4%) I did not believe the 4.4% but had to trawl a long way down to find the figures and even then the 4.4% LFL is repeated !! Absolute misleading BS !

I would in fact completely ignore the news, reacting to it is daft. These wont recover until the dividend reinstated, if they can get some decent management in after the deadbeats they have had these last couple of years this could recover well. The high st in U.K. is pretty much finished (like the brexit fiasco of a country in general) but card shops should be ok. This year is a write off just best to ignore. They are not paying any rates, can borrow for nothing, can push down on rents, it will be the end for any more rises in minimum wage from this imbecile government as 2/3 rds of companies now looking to cut wages. If there is a vaccine, get through the winter, could all look very different. In hindsight I should have dumped these on the way down but may as well wait now. I owned Ferrexpo a couple of years ago that went down to .20p, within about 18 months had gone to 3.20, same with Anglo, went down to 2 quid, eventually sold them at 23. Just got to leave these and wait for normal service to resume. A brexit deal from these axxeholes would help, any deal, doesnt have to be any good, its a damage limitation exercise now anyway. Seems all the real money fleeing UK anyway.

I am holding my base position, but I am mainly looking at other distressed assets on the way down and adding incrementally, hard to see the bottom at the moment, but where travel is concerned we seem to get a month of quarantine/restrictions/fear followed by a month of vacine, hopes, stimulus dreams. Stay in the game just keep your position size sensible and add/reduce according to news.
