Anyone remember reading extracts from accounts, like the one below, but more importantly receiving the divi? back in the day. Carpetright PLC Final Results Carpetright PLC 25 June 2002 Carpetright plc. Record results and European acquisition Carpetright plc, the UK's leading specialist carpet retailer with 347 stores trading at the year end, today announces its preliminary results for the year ended 27 April 2002 as well as its first venture into the European carpet retailing market. Trading Highlights • Pre-tax profit increased 17.8% to a record £52.5 million • Like for like sales up by 6.7% against last year • Total sales of £361.5 million, up 12% overall compared to last year • Gross margin up against last year by 0.8 percentage points to 58% • Earnings per share improved by 15.5% to 48.4p • Recommended final dividend per share of 20p (up 25%), making 33p for the year • Cash balances £6.2 million, after £10.6 million freehold purchases, £16.0 million other capital expenditure and £4.2 million share repurchases. Lord Harris, Chairman and Chief Executive, said: 'I am pleased to announce profits for Carpetright at £52.5 million for the last financial year, an increase of 17.8% and gross margin up to 58%. We have focused the year on improving the gross margin and on holding our administration costs which means we finish the year with a net operating margin of 14.4% up 0.6%.' 'We continue to gain market share and with our new store opening programme and our new five metre cutting warehouse facilities at Dolphin Park, West Thurrock we expect to make further progress this financial year.' 'We are also very pleased to announce that Carpetright has acquired 50% in Carpetland nv, the leading carpet retailer in Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg, for approximately €15 million. Carpetland nv has 92 stores and a market share of 5-6%. Carpetland nv last year had sales of €94 million and made a pre-tax profit of €3.8 million. In addition, Carpetright has acquired certain of the freehold and long leasehold properties from which Carpetland nv operates for approximately €35 million .' 'Carpetright will take management control of the joint venture and we expect it to be earnings enhancing in the current financial year.' The final ordinary dividend of 20p per share (2001: 16p) will be paid on 27 September 2002 to shareholders registered at the close of business on 13 September 2002, subject to shareholders' approval at the Annual General Meeting to be held on 13 August 2002. An interim ordinary dividend of 13.0p (2001: 11.0p) per share was paid on 22 February 2002 giving a total ordinary dividend for the year of 33p (2001: 27p) per share. I am pleased to report that Carpetright plc achieved another record pre-tax profit of £52.5 million for the year to 27 April 2002, an increase of 17.8% compared to last year. Sales for the year were 12% up on last year to £361.5 million, 6.7% up on a like for like basis. Gross margin has grown 0.8 percentage points to 58%, driven from the increase in participation in sales from higher price cut length product cut in our increased warehouse facilities. Gross margin improvement combined with ongoing operational efficiencies and cost management have delivered a net operating margin of 14.4%, an improvement of 0.6 percentage points on last year. K

I think saltsquire was trying to say that wilf was going to announce things at their annual conference which is where they take all the management out of the already understaffed shops , using money that they don't have. Don't think they where indicating that it was going to be on the end of a phone, Apologies if I am wrong

If you must have a conference call ...do it outside trading hours. I do agree with the above. "I know, let's think of a way to annoy any potential customers who have driven half an hour to get here to find the shop closed " Unbelievable ..

Is the company still doing these conference calls to stores every week, anyone know? I remember one morning i went to a local store to purchase carpet to find it closed. Lights on staff inside to be told they couldnt open due to the conference call they have on a regular basis.... waste of time n money with hundreds of stores all over the country closed on a regular basis with hundreds of staff standing around being paid and stores not taking money, whoever thought of that crazy idea... did it work. Does it work? NO. if it did the share price would not be in the 20's.... in the days of no conference calls the share price was in the £'s... get the stores open for a start, that might help a bit. But WTFDIK.:/K

Apparently they have booked a plot for a January funeral.Meditor must be loving it. I am hearing they had to waive their refund so they are owed the value of the company. At least all the creditors have got their money back. Apparently Wilf Walsh is to speak st a conference in October an insolvency one!
