They have been going hell for leather on FB today so they might have an idea who the winning bidder is or perhaps it’s their last hurrah who knows. I’m confident we’ll see something this week.

No not as a fresh chicken -probably GP 25% IE £2.66 but yes if added value-cooked on rotiserry £6.00/£7.00 (66 -71%)if part of ready to eat snack sandwich etc GP 70-80%. GP would depend on what is added in cost of sales appart from raw material. Crawshaws bought alot of short shelf life meat/chicken which should have elevated GP.

So in effect, you would buy a chicken for £2 and sell for £10?...

No nomal catering margin is 70 to 80% ie Raw material times 4.5 to 5.0 Crawsahws had a mix of 60% fresh meat and 40% cooked catering sales. with 40% @ 80% and 60% @ 50% = 62% average. They got about 40% GP. Needed 7% more to achive break even. Wages about 20% of sales.

I think your margin calculations might be a bit off Richard, making 80% profit is like turning rocks into gold

As an ex profitable owner manufacturing butcher, I find it hard to see how their GP was so low with a mix of cooked and catering products that should have raised the margin to 80% for part of the mix. i.e. 40-50% for fresh meat and 80% for cooked/catering. Giving an expected margin of 60%. Too late now -what will be left for shareholders??. Cannot recall shareholders being asked about a writes issue! The administrators seem to have acted decisively very quickly if part of a predetermined plan.

Under the circumstances I would be surprised if any of the remaining outlets are trading profitably today. The administrators are prohibited from allowing a loss making business to continue trading so we should start to see more closures announced unless they get a deal concluded this week.

Just out of interest as someone who never invested but who has watched this for a long time do we know what has happened to the much vaunted profitable factory shops. How many have been closed or kept open.

So in summary of the various senders posts below this buyer - Mick Charles - has sourced cheap and nasty quality products from suppliers who he is good friends with. Question is why??His actions has seen sales tumble and stores fail across business and 300 employees made redundant . Im guessing mention of a Turkish holiday means this has been provided by one of these 'chosen' suppliers - can this be confirmed??The massive payments to this Nelson contractor must be easy for administrator to check as accounts must be visible.spoken to couple of ex employees. The guy is hated and seen as 'little' bully and backstabber. his view of JV also poor - 'overpaid gardener'. This guy tried to work wonders in short space of time to save business!!Appalling.

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/04755803/filing-history You can have a look at Crawshaw group accounts here. Look at page 14 of the 2017 accounts “ Report of the Remuneration committe” Noel Collett (Lidl man) £334,000.00.

"I not allowed to comment on this forum or any other 😂 or I will be in high court" So who's gonna pay the legal costs? The bankrupt Crawshaws? Maybe they can barter their legal costs with out of date chicken fillets, only dropped once. lol

I would contact the administrators and ask for an explanation. They will need permission to pursue you and that's not happening.

Scotty - look for yourself the figure is from the filed accounts at companies house. It’s public information you or anyone can look to confirm. Figures like wage role are easy for auditors to confirm so it’s NOT wrong.

BG - 'As long as what you've been saying is true and not a protected trade secret, there shouldn't be any concern. Lawyers typically make menacing threats because it is intended to frighten ex-employees into silence in relation to revealing mis-deeds. All you need to care about is whether what you're saying is true, isn't revealing trade secrets, and is fair comment.' Spot on. All management should be expected to be held to account 24/7 by their employers the shareholders - if they don't like it - TOUGH - don't take the job. Ninety percent plus that i've come across are either incompetent, untrustworthy or the type of person you should't turn your back on within 500 metres.

From reading the last few posts it seems you are not aware Nole Collett (the Liddl man) took a salary of £334,000 that’s taken from the filed accounts for the year to 29th Jan 2017. And according to those same accounts he held no shares in the company.
