H1 results confirmed for 25 November. Good luck to one and all (be they long or short or tall).

Pretty much holding a tad under 220p......I would think think we will see the share price back to around 250p fairly soon but getting back above 300p could take a longer and will probably require some good news to achieve that.

Hi blanket... I fear you are being a little too optimistic. Sales are down (revenue is reduced from last year). The reason some people are talking about a rights issue is to strengthen the balance sheet by reducing debt and giving more headroom to covenants. Unlike you I think covenants are quite tight but unlike some others I think the company can manage working capital, etc to keep these safe, for now. But I do agree the company has a good medium/long term future.

Back again! Just a few points. Sales are NOT down, although margins, and therefore profits are. Profits are also being adversely impacted by the exchange rate. A further problem is manufacturing in the US flares section, where local management seem to have a limited level of competence. However measures are already underway to bring down costs (some of said management are getting their cards), and market research and consolidation are new priorities. I am not sure why a rights issue would be necessary, or what it would achieve. Funds are NOT needed in the business beyond what is generated, unless further acquisitions are planned. Covenants are not all that near to being breached, so the banks should be happy enough without dilution. As others here have said though, and I myself fear, shares are too often driven by sentiment and momentum, often with one feeding off the other. I remain confident, but realise that there are potential shorter term problems here. Good luck to us all. (If I was a removal man my nickname would be 'removal man'. I used to be a blanketstacker, so it is 'blanketstsacker').

I think on balance a rights issue is more likely than not, and this is what`s still causing the shareprice weakness, seen yet again this morning.

Maybe, but with the operating issues and declining sales the financial stability of this co. is being questioned, off course problems will be resolved, but right now the covenant issue is problematic in terms of confidence as regards the cos. ability to manage these issues without impacting their ability to cover short term funding issues.

I think it's a bit premature to talk about a fund-raising. Of course it could happen but on balance, with the available data we have, I don't think so.

bookbroker , I agree and even now it`d have to be very heavily discounted to get it away. Unless of course the big boys are already in the know and have been dumping shares for the last week knowing they can buy back in much cheaper at the fund raising not too far from this price ?

Big rights issue here on the horizon, balance sheet has to be repaired with so much uncertainty, best get it out of the way before it becomes impossible to price.

A lot of share price movement is by momentum. In my experience worse than expected news is never fully priced in. If the Nov statement is bad then the price can still fall from where it is. As regards the dividend, it all depends upon how close they are to breaching covenants. Finals are usually announced late Jan so we will find out then, if not in Nov trading statement. If there was any danger I would expect sensible management to cancel the dividend. That would almost certainly trigger another fall in the share price

I also meant to say a takeover is perfectly feasible now, as the company is currently being valued (sub 220) at far less than the sum of its component parts.

This is my first post on ADVFN, but thought I would chip in as I formerly worked for a large CHG customer, know the sector a little, and still have mates who work in it. The company at under 220 a share represents a bargain, I believe. Management has not done a good job lately, and some of the recent acquisitions have cost more than they can ever be worth, but the sales force are DRIVEN, and the CLA and countermeasures sections of the company are showing good profits and have very secure markets. As a whole the company is very well connected and thought of, especially in the Middle East. Sections of the company have been acquired to ensure US 'aid' spending is available to CHG, and this concept has proved successful. The debt that has been accumulated is well covered, so this is not a problem. The trading update next month will not be good, and we have been softened up for it with the ridiculous comments about the US shutdown impacting on sales. This means a fall has already been factored in, and if anything overdone. I have bought in here twice since the fall, and am happy I did. I formerly held CHG, but sold in the 280s, as I believe that is fair value and wanted the money for something else. I would hope to see this at c270 again before Christmas. Even if it does not quite make it that far, the spring will bring a very decent dividend. In short this seems a tidy place to have your money. (I have posted similar comments on II).

Philanderer, We know that the trading update is almost certainly not going to be good but the present share price has more than factored that in but of course what is not factored in of course is any new orders that have yet been won but CHG is quality company and there is little doubt in my mind that they will be winning contracts over the coming months.
