If they liked the business at £1.40 why not buy a lot more at £1.00? Bet they have a buy order in at that price hence current price?

Any thoughts on who’s pushing the price down? Bet we see another RNS iro Harwood having purchased more on the cheap…someone’s pushing asking price down and buying everything up?

No wonder NAS has been under pressure.
I think he holds CARR on expectation of work in nuclear.

This is such an unusual situation that I suspect the FCA might have other concerns. CARR had been an anomaly as a listed company in that it derived over 70% of its revenue from non-wholly owned businesses. The issue with the audit of Carrs Billington Operations highlighted that a substantial part of the business was not under CARR's control. I am no expert on the listing rules but generally, listed companies need a substantial majority of the company's operations under their control. Carr's escaped the Stock Exchange/FCA taking much notice of the company's unusual corporate structure for over 20 years. Now the FCA will be looking at the application for a restoration of the listing and maybe considering that CARR needs to issue a new listing document. If so that would entail considerable expense and delay. It may even be the case that the company could switch to AIM which would not have been possible previously under the AIM rules due to the structure of Carrs Billington. I really hope CARR's advisers and the FCA can sort the situation out swiftly for the sake of shareholders.

I personally think these results were pretty good and when the shares re-enter the market they will actually go up in value but, as always, time will tell; I’ve cut and pasted part of the full year report below::

For the year ended 3 September 2022

"A strong performance in a transformational year for the Group"

Still no news from Carrs .I wonder if this is because of a real problem ,or GT hanging it out to get "overtime" (they were lowest bidder last year at auction KPMG lost out) or is someone holding the results up to get time to accumulate funds for when the share price plummets on opening to make a takeover bid?

The latest delay (the third) in the release of Carr’s long overdue results for the year to September 2022 is highly embarrassing and reflects poorly on the stewardship of Peter Page, the ex-Devro ceo, who took over as chairman at the start of 2020.

The delay in the release of the accounts means that the company’s shares have had to be suspended since January 4th.The initial plan was to have the results published “as soon as possible” in January. That deadline was then shifted to February 14th and has now been pushed back to “no later” than February 27th which is the same day as the company’s long delayed annual general meeting to approve the accounts for the year to September 2022. So much for shareholders having time to read the report and accounts before the agm vote.

The delay in the release of the 2021/22 accounts has been portrayed as a due to technical difficulties resulting from a need for a separate audit of an associate company that was sold as part of the disposal of Carr’s low margin agricultural supplies division. The company insists that trading for the last financial year and the first half of 2022/23 has “been in line with management expectations”, whatever that means.

However, the delay in publishing the accounts, together with the long delay in implementing the strategic review which led to the eventual sale of the agricultural supplies division, has left shareholders frustrated. The arrival of Christopher Mills’ Harwood Capital on Carr’s share register less than four months ago, suggests that Carr’s lacklustre performance has finally started to attract the attention of potential predators/activist investors.

Since Page took over as chairman three years ago he has been through two chief executives and took on the role of executive chairman in October 2021. He steps down to become chief executive after this month’s agm, when Tim Jones, the former chairman of one time stock market high flyer Treatt, takes over as Carr’s chairman.

The latest trading update, released with news of a further delay in the publication of last year’s results, made a depressing read. After a good start in the early part of the current financial year trading had become “more challenging” with lower volumes of feed blocks sold related to weather conditions in both the USA and UK markets, and “competitive pricing for tenders in the engineering division”.

This hardly suggests that the slimmed down Carr’s is going to be quickly transformed into a high margin growth stock. Hopefully, finding a new chief executive to replace Page will be a top priority in the new chairman’s in-tray.

Re; changes in share stakes. Rights and Issues has not sold its stake in Carr's. All that has happened is that the management of the trust has been transferred to Jupiter who have signalled that they now own the stake.

I have no inside knowledge about the strengths/weaknesses of Carr's top management who are now in charge of a much slimmed down, but higher margin business. But Peter Page, Carr's new chief executive, appears to have had a successful 11 years as CEO of Devro, a considerably bigger and more profitable company than Carr's, and since he took over as chairman three years ago has spent £187,00 on buying Carr's shares at an average price of £1.50.share.

The fall is relentless , now trading below £1. To give this some perspective, the disposal announcement came out on August 31. The share price close that day at 133p On August 31 the day of the disposal announcement the share price closed at £1.33p. So we have a strategic review of the group that lasted 9 months, and culminated in exiting the JV, in return for a wodge of cash, a significantly smaller group, but one with higher prospective margins. So suppoedly a transformational deal. Sadly Mr Market, and shareholders did not buy this view.

Perhaps our Chairman and Board would care to explain why after a supposedly transformational deal, our share price has tanked 25%+ in 21 days? The Board should hang their collective heads in shame at their disastrous performance. The senior NED should be on the phone to the institutions explaining what has happened and why they should stick weith it.Disastrous stewardship of a business that appeared to have strong positions, but they have destroyed confidence in teh company. The CEO who was fired clearly came up against entrenched board opposition among the has-beens in Cumbria. Utter disaster.
