I think you will see the £4 mark last reached in 1994! attained again. This is a smashing company which I last visited in 2004. At that time they told me it would take time. They were right.

Good to see that they have increased the turnover and GROWN the business. Have bitten the bullet and taken exceptional loss on TPMS. Could do with some positive write ups in the press.

Yes , very encouraging, here's today's full news release; James Cropper PLC ("the Company") Financial year ended 2(nd) April 2011. The Company operates two funded pension schemes providing defined benefits for the majority of its full time employees. As from 1(st) April 2011 active members' benefits have been reduced such that future increases in pensionable salaries are restricted to RPI up to a maximum of 2% per annum. Therefore the schemes will remain defined benefit schemes but they will no longer be "final salary" schemes. Thus as a consequence of this change to future benefits and other factors, the IAS 19 valuations of these schemes as at 2(nd) April 2011 revealed a combined deficit of GBP1.4 million, compared with GBP14.2 million at the previous year end, a decrease of GBP12.8 million. IAS 19 requires that any reduction in deficit arising from a curtailment of benefits should be shown on the face of the Statement of Comprehensive Income. This means that the Company's published Statement of Comprehensive Income will show a credit of GBP10.2 million arising from curtailment. After allowing for deferred tax on the deficits, shareholders' funds will consequently be uplifted by GBP9.2 million as at 2(nd) April 2011. Membership of these schemes has been closed to new members for ten years. Further to the statement issued on 5(th) January 2011 the Company confirms that its subsidiary The Paper Mill Shop Limited ("TPMS") had closed all of its retail outlets by 2(nd) April 2011. It is anticipated that TPMS will incur a loss, including full provision for all closure and redundancy costs, of approximately GBP1.8 million in the financial year ended 2(nd) April 2011. Of this total GBP0.7 million relates to trading loses and GBP1.1 million to exceptional exit costs. Cash out flow in the year was GBP1.0 million. During the year to 2(nd) April 2011 the Company's other businesses have performed in line with the comments made by the Chairman in the Interim Statement issued on 16(th) November 2010. Mark Cropper, the Company's Chairman said "We have started the new financial year having dramatically reduced the threat to the Company posed by its pension schemes and retailing activities. This enables us to focus with renewed energy and confidence on profitably growing our three specialist manufacturing businesses". The Company's full year results will be announced on 28(th) June 2011.

Pulp and energy prices high - but 15p eps achieved for the first half. Nil gearing. Converting doing well, and: "I anticipate that TFP's sales to the aerospace, defence, security and consumer electronics sectors will continue to build strongly over the remainder of the financial year with profits well ahead of last year".

Great eps recovery! But gas costs £2m less than the year before? Those will increase with the economy... Profits were at £2.4m for the year - wouldn't hav eleft much profit if they'd remained high. Pulp prices increased rapidly but now believed to have levelled out and excpected to fall. Is next year's result really dependent on how these two factors balance? G.

ames Cropper (B)(A) – James Tetley (0845 059 6691) Final Results – BUY (Unchanged since 24/04/09) – 12m Price Target: 220p - Current Price: 127.5p – Market Cap: £10.9m · Ahead of expectations - James Cropper's full year results are comfortably ahead of expectations, confirming a very strong recovery in earnings against a challenging economic backdrop. At £2.4m (vs a forecast of £2.0m), PBT was more than double the 2009 result (£0.9m) as sales proved remarkably resilient (+2% to £76.2m) and input costs retreated from their prior year peak. · Net debt eliminated - The elimination of net debt from £4.4m to £0.0m was a particular highlight, providing the Board with the confidence to increase the full year dividend to 7.5p (6% yield). · Cost pressures returning but recovery in TFP - The cost environment is expected to be challenging in the short term for Speciality Papers, but an improving order book suggests a recovery in TFP. · Attractive valuation - We expect to retain our 220p price target and Buy recommendation.
